You might be thinking, “Why would anyone want to own a tank?”
I think the better question is, “Why would anyone NOT want to own one?”
Think about it. If you had a tank, you would not have to worry about getting injured if you are not exactly an excellent driver. I can’t say the same thing about the other people on the road, though.
If you had a tank, you have a pretty good mobile defense against Walkers when the zombiecalypse happens.
If you had a tank, you can crush your old cars instead of paying a junk yard to do the job.
You can rack up so many plus points by merely having your own tank! And, for those of you who may be thinking of the legalities of owning a tank, fret not. Owning a tank is totally legal – at least in the United States.
So now that the merits and legality of owning a tank are out of the way, let me point you to a nifty infographic that will tell you all about the basics of owning a tank. You know, just in case you decide to give yourself one for Christmas.
This infographic landed on our laps, thanks to Wish.co.uk. It starts with a brief history lesson about tanks, just so you appreciate how rich the story of tanks are. You can also learn about the 6 top classic tanks:
- WWI Tank
- MK IV Panzer
- M-1 Abrams
If you need to know more about tanks before splurging on one, you can visit the Tank Museum in Dorset. Then again, if you’re not in the UK, you might want to check out other great tank museums.
Now, on to the meat of the matter: where do you go to buy your tanks? The infographic covers pretty much all locations: from the US to the UK to Eastern Europe to Australia. Just be prepared to pay anywhere from $69,000 to $595,000 for one tank, depending on the type.
And, a word of caution in case you’re thinking of blowing things up…while owning a tank is legal in many places, the one condition is almost always having to deactivate the guns and firing systems. Talk about party pooper!
In any case, whether you’re serious about owning a tank or not, here is the infographic for your viewing pleasure.
