Joachim Schoeneich of Neu Anspach Germany may well be reacting to the rising cost of food so much so that he needs to protect it. He and his family shop for groceries in their family tank! The tank is really a $47,376 six-ton British Army Fox FV721 armored reconnaissance vehicle which has tires rather than tracks. Schoeneich has even customised the vehicle with a special seat for his little boy.
The gun doesn't work, but it sure looks intimidating. Schoeneich admits it is tricky to maneuver and park, but he gets right of way at every junction. It's almost certain nobody would dare to cut him off!
Also fun, tank paintball:
