My father serves in the army and I have been one of those privileged few army kids who got to ride around in a tank. While in the tank I did want to knock down the soldier who was manning the wheel and drive it myself but I knew I would be in for big trouble if I did. And that is where my dream of driving a tank ended. Or did it? Now available for all those of you who have wanted to drive a tank – the ultimate vacation – a Tank Driving lesson. You and your instructor can play with an Abbott tracked gun, an Armored Personnel Carrier or a six-wheeled Stalwart for about two hours.
Although there is a slight catch. You have to be between 5 feet and 6 feet 4 inches in height, weigh less than 252 pounds. Lastly, you have to at least 17 years of age. The cost for the lesson is £175.00 ($343 USD). I know I qualify. So if you’re short – hang on those monkey bars, if you’re overweight – go on a diet and exercise and if you’re too young…well get a fake ID won’t you?
