Hi all, I presume that some of you are also armored vehicle enthusiasts, as shown by the previous thread "Marine LVTs". So I'm starting my own. It is well-known that Germany is a left-hand-drive country, while Japan is right-hand-drive. And of course tanks are not supposed to roar down the highway on a regular basis. The mystery is, why is it that the German Leopard tank has the driver on the right side (right hand drive), while the Japanese Type 90 has the driver on the left (left hand drive)?
