    So, that's how the Soviets beat Germany in WWII, bad roads. With roads in that condition, the tanks might be okay, but any axle equipped vehicle would be in trouble, as they could break an axle, or at least suffer multiple tire blowouts and bent rims.

    But, Lionking, those are Italians. You can tell by the shape of their helmets and the fact that they like riding scooters. LOL. Of course, I remember reading somewhere that there were Italian troops in the Soviet Union.

    @Mvilu Yes, in the *comic* they are Italians, also the fact they're gennets and not German Shepards confirms that fact, but I was referring to real-life WWII. :=3

    (1) Oh, yes. A LOT of Italian troops on the Eastern Front. Among other things, one of the last major cavalry charges in history was performed by Italian cavalry forces. (See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charge_of_the_Savoia_Cavalleria_at_Izbushensky ) When the Red Army isolated the 6th German Army at Stalingrad, they routed the flanking Hungarian, Italian and Roumanian troops to do so.

    (2) Scuttlebutt has it that Italians drive like maniacs, no matter the road conditions. Or even if there are any roads. (See Panel 2)

    @Mvilu: You are quite correct, several divisions of Italian troops served under German command on the Eastern front in WWII, along with Romanian and Bulgarian troops. These units had very poor performance in battle, so they are not widely remembered as being present.

    Be careful of using the word "they," everybody. There's only one tail going over the cliff, so it could just be the one whose machine went airborn that actually went over.

    @ Random Guy :

    Oh , yes ; really ? Have you counted the lines in the snow (last panel) before to comment ? ^_^"

    @Panther:

    Honestly, I didn't notice prior to it being pointed out to me. I just saw the single tail & speech balloon & assumed it was one speaker. Either way, I'd rather not get combative about it.

    I'm just saying we can't know for certain how many went over until the next update.
