Wanna Pay To Drive A Military Tank?

This is flat-out awesome!

If you’re tired of the crowds at Six Flags, and Dis­ney World is a bore, a Minnesota-based adven­ture com­pany can put you in com­mand of a behe­moth tank that’s capa­ble of anni­hi­lat­ing just about any­thing in its path.

Located in Kasota, a small city sit­u­ated about 70 miles south­west of Min­neapo­lis, Drive A Tank caters to indi­vid­u­als inter­ested in military-tank dri­ving and car-crush adventures.

The com­pany, owned and oper­ated by Tony Bor­glum, has an impres­sive num­ber of demil­i­ta­rized vehi­cles and tanks at its dis­posal. Some of the more notable mod­els include an FV432 armored per­son­nel car­rier, an FV433 Abbot self-propelled Gun, an FV43x armored vehi­cle and an FV 4201 Chieftain.

The Chief­tain, which sports an intim­i­dat­ing 22-foot bar­rel, was the main bat­tle tank of the United King­dom dur­ing the 1960s and 1970s. The mam­moth 60-ton tank is one of 90 left in the entire world. It’s capa­ble of pul­ver­iz­ing a car. It’s also one of Borglum’s most prized possessions.
