I came around a corner in England's Bovington Tank Museum and confronted a King Tiger after spending an hour studying British and American WWII tanks. Seeing the KT suddenly like that, up close, scared the living hell out of me. It was twice the size of the tanks it had to fight and with a gun that seemed a frigging mile long. I had been putting my mind in the place of the gunners and drivers of Shermans and Churchills and to suddenly see that KT looming over me made my heart leap into my throat. I still remember the feeling.

So the KT definitely gets my vote for scariest.

I haven't seen any votes for the Greyhound as sportiest but to me it seems like a cool little hot rod AFV. I wouldn't want to fight in one but it might be fun to drive...
