It isn’t only a tank — it is a Ripsaw, bruh. The world’s quickest tank.

At 750 horsepower and underneath 10,00zero kilos, the Ripsaw is able to simply over 100 mph, however is just too mild and too quick to essentially be labeled as a regular tank. And it would not actually have the identical heavy armor or firepower of the Military’s go-to battle tanks, which might be twice as heavy.
