    The video shows the spectacular military exercises carried out in Grafenwoehr during the June 3rd Strong Europe Tank Challenge (SECT), where Germany was able to defeat other contestants, including the US.

    After a week of military exercises where participants blew up targets and participated in challenges, Germany took home the trophy for the top tank detachment.

    The German team already won two years ago, but their top-place victory this time was not a predictable outcome.

    Sweden almost rammed ahead of Germany, but the German team scored points for best overall performance and set up the highest rank in the last day's "Tanker Olympics," where tank crews race around a track with heavy tank parts and gear.

      A little black bat was spotted eating a piece of succulent watermelon and seemed to be unable to stop devouring the delicious fruit. Even though it is not surprising that the creature was gobbling up the melon, as bats are generally not too picky and eat various sorts of food, this certainly is a cute scene to observe.
