#51 Crushing the Martians


Across the sands of Mars rolled the powerful tanks from Earth. The tanks crashed their way into the dome city and rolled through the streets. Several Martians charged the steel vehicles with death guns aimed in their hands. Before the Martians could fire, a blast from the tank dropped them in their tracks. The tanks rolled forward, crushing anything in their path, and always heading toward the huge power source in the middle of the dome city. The Martian scientists saw the tanks coming, but there was little they could do to protect themselves. A parade of Earthmen streamed into the power center after the tanks, smashing the equipment.
