You know a bit about tanks, right?  Is this for real? Not the hover-tank title, that's just theweaselking's ongoing joke, but is the picture legit or photoshopped?

It's a picture of a Russian T-80 tank that's been photoshopped to make it appear to be landing on an aircraft carrier. I think the original version shows the tank leaping over a sand berm at high speed, so it really is briefly flying. The T-80 is sometimes called "the flying tank" due to the publicity photos that Antonov (the Russian company that markets them) created for their marketing campaign.
