Germany is buying little tanks called "Rommel Raiders" to attack English football fans during the FIFA World Cup next year. The Sun has the whole story:

Mwahahahahaha.

That aerial (4) sure looks sturdy enough to stand up to "interest" from "inquisitive" fans.
Been inclined to wander... off the beaten track.
That's where there's thunder... and the wind shouts back.

Attack English fans? I must have missed something. These things aren't designed for crowd control but for surveillance, sniffing out of chemicals, explosives and radioactive substances.

This is typical SUN nonsense, pulling the WWII card whenever they get half a chance. Reading the comments, even the readers seem to think that the gist of the article was idiotic.

"Rommel Raiders"?

You have to admit, they're good.

There's a big media battle* about it going on at the moment Mas - it's all just a bit of an "in-joke" ("don't mention the war!").

(* and when I say battle, I mean a little kick around. With miniature tanks. And stuff.)

Those tanks are no way big enough.

You've got to be looking at a Panzerkampfwagen Panther or Tiger minimum - preferably loaded to the gunnels with @sshole-seeking ground to tosser hardcore ballistic ordinance specially adapted to lock on to the flag of St George (who was a Syrian btw).

'war' jokes are Brit of fun

WTF!!??

Those are the most unfunny jokes I have ever read. Now I know what they mean by English humour. It doesn't exist.
