    A man appeared in court in Sydney on Saturday after driving an armored personnel carrier and demolishing six mobile phone towers.
    The local police Chief Inspector Guy Haberley said his men managed to stop and arrest the 45-year-old man while making his way to a seventh tower.
    "He continued to destroy mobile tower communications sheds by crashing through the perimeter fence and colliding with structures, causing significant damage," Haberley was quoted as saying.
    The charges against the 45-year-old include malicious damage, breaking and entering , predatory driving and driving in a dangerous manner.

    hmm yep that was on the news a few days ago in sydney, apparently he attacked it because he used to work for telecommunications company and is blaming them for some apparent brain damage or something?

    Firstly its an APC. A tank is much heavier and the armour is generally thicker and it needs a main gun.

    Secondly, he aquired the APC while it was in restoration. It wasnt in active service with the military, its an old WWII APC that was being restored by a company.

    The guy that stole it was one of the people working on its restoration.
    How do I know this? My dad has a factory on the street ajacent to it and he knows the guy that owns it :roll:
    No I did not steal the "tank" :p

    oh wow how interesting. small world isn't it. i guess a APC isn't as deadly as a tank... but if i was driving and saw that in my rear view mirror, i'd get the hell out of the way!
