A Tiger 2 tank (commonly referred to as the King Tiger) rolls through a French town during the Battle of the Bulge, 1944. An extrodinary tank, but with a heavy tank comes a large target, as well as mechanical issues. At that point in the war, due to the Allies having air superiority, the tank was just a target. Could take any tank one on one though of course.
Creds: @mein_leben.3 another great page! Although I only speak very basic Spanish, he has a very informative page for all you Spanish speakers out there!
🎥 In 2017 I traveled to war zone in South Sudan with the humanitarian organization Medair. South Sudan, the world's youngest nation, became an independent country in 2011 after decades of war with Sudan. Peace was short lived. Civil war erupted in December 2013 forcing millions of south Sudanese to leave their homes and land.
Since the end of 2013, conflict has devastated millions of lives. Alarming levels of malnutrition are seen across the country and the rates are higher than anywhere else in the world. Families have been uprooted. There are outbreaks of deadly disease. There is limited access to safe water and sanitation. Women have few places to safely give birth. Thousands of lives are at risk.
Medair has been working in South Sudan since 1992 and they asked me to tell the story of the work they do to bring life-saving relief in remote and forgotten places of South Sudan. 🎥🎬 To watch the full micro doc ➡️ link in bio 💥

Theres a reason why I don't adhere to rules well.
It might have to do with the rain, it might have to do with your face. It might have to do with the lion that crept up to the chicken coop and destroyed all the eggs.
It's not that I don't like you or that I don't respect the pattern or trend in which you like to follow.
It might just be that I like it when there's a little more wild to it. Something that feels a little bit bigger than all of us.
It's safe to say some of us have been to enough places to give you a daily wake up call on how blessed we are.
There are just parts of the world that are fucked.
There is more opportunity and more possibility for you to do what you want to do every single day here, as compared to anywhere else in another country.
Remember everyone deployed.
