Enthusiast of Chinese Builds as a Functional Tank
You have had gone through one of such moments when you would desperately wished something but just could not manage to afford it. The Chinese farmer certainly went through similar kind of experience, but in its place of giving up this farmer DiY-ed his dream in complete reality – and created himself as the tank.
Li Guojun, the Chinese farmer has always interested in different kinds of military toys, particularly tanks. Their childhood passion also pushed them to building some couple of life-sized completely functional recently. At the same time he also did that without understanding much about the military engineering or even searching the information on Internet. He also does not have the access to proper internet connection.
“To be very honest, it was not that hard to do,” as said by Li. “I just required to make same parts which the model had, however quite larger.”
The enthusiast of fellow military tank also helped Li with their project as spending their own free time for driving these 2 tracked vehicles all around the village in the Kangping County, with Liaoning Province in the north China.
Subsequent to various different attempts to create their tanks, that kind of failed as well as the machines that got scraped, these eventually ended up through models of 008 as well as 009 these are completely functional and are also able to move as fast as about 12 mph (19 km/h) above any type of terrain.
On other hand, because of the legal as well as the safety reasons, these tanks offers no firepower, which barrel being just the simple pipe devoid of any chamber for the ammunition. Moreover, turret even appears to get fixed.
