Is a personal tank the latest luxury must-have?

Recommended Posts

There are vidoes on Youtube of this under the name of Ripsaw

 

 

 

Getting one to a UK show might be a nice attraction?

Come now, esteemed colleagues! You know better than to call that thing a tank; it's a tracked personnel carrier at best. Maybe with some uses in the appropriate setting - which isn't just to flip the finger at the underpaid.

Back in 2005 the Howe Bros thought that there might be a military use for such a fast tracked vehicle, but times have moved on. Hitler might have loved to have a Panzer go that fast for his Blitzkrieg in 1939 but no matter how fast Ripsaw is, it's still vulnerable to an aircraft, a drone or a missle so its never going to be used even as a remote 'downed pilot' rescue or re-supply vehicle as suggested back then, as helicopters can do that and be off and away faster than anything on the ground. If there was any serious use then I'm sure the US Military would have found one in the 12 years since.
