Notsomuch the tank but the character studies.

I would imagine that there are people who would try to salvage that and get it up and running again.

By the body language of the crew on top of the tank, I didn't interpret anything to be wrong with it.

Here's more inspiration.

Certainly not a rout. They all look pretty cool, calm & collected. :smiley:

The little guy in the centre, possibly an officer or NCO? (He's wearing a 1911/A1 & has binoculars slung around his neck.) looks just about ready to take on the entire NKA all on his lonesome! :D

Dude on the left with the pile cap looks like he has an LT rank on it.

My guess is the guy with his back to the camera in front of this outfit is a Captain.

Agreed - they look ready to kick some serious ass.

The tank says PHILIPPINES on it, so they may be Filipino soldiers, not Korean.
