Train vs Tank?

49 Replies 501 Views Created 21-12-2011

i just remembered a james bond film where a train rammed a tank, so i was wondering if a tank rammed a modern passanger train (local train sort of thing) or a heavy duty freight train, who would be in worse condition as a result?

scenario: tank is travelling at 20mph (i believe that is the top speed of a tank generally) vs a train going 30mph

so who would win?

I'd say that it depends.

What is the definition of a win in this instance. If a win is who can still run after impact (putting the train back on track or flipping the tank) I don't see the tank losing (if we are using large tanks) smaller tanks may manage a draw with a freight train.

i feel like im in some sort of math test and havent revised 8o

theyd probably both lose, but Bond shot at the train too, so im guessing a tank is more deadly and a train probably less so.

The train would almost certainly derail and suffer a lot of damage. I image the tank would be in better condition seeing as it is at least designed to withstad impacts to a degree.
