My latest addiction is the game World of Tanks...
It's full of hypothetical "paper tanks" that never left drawing boards in real life, like the French "AMX-40" above.

It pushed me backwards through a whole village of mud brick buildings as I continued to fire ineffectively at muzzle-contact distance until one of its shots knocked out my gun.
Meanwhile, its buddy, the M5 Stuart, circled around a back alley behind me and finally put me out of my misery...
