Following in the footsteps of wanting to learn to fly a plane (or participate in a simulated dog fight), I think driving a tank would be a natural extension of my militaristic desires. Driving tonnes of armored metal designed to withstand the kinetic force and explosive capabilities of projectile weaponry would send testosterone filled joy through my body! Even writing that sentence made me excited!
Calm down Zach! Honestly though, as a life experience I would definitely love to tell the tale of driving a tank. Naturally, I’d want to extend this experience into firing the main cannon, and maybe taking a ride in the machine gunners seat too.
I remember a time back when I was a young teen, and I really got my first taste of ‘controlling a tank’… Command and Conquer: Red Alert (Tesla Coil anyone? Woooooop… ZZZZZZ!). Ever since then, (or maybe just because I’m a guy) I’ve always wanted to try out the tools of war – but without the danger of actual war…
Driving a tank… that’s an experience worth sharing!
