Video: Japan’s Secret Weapon is a Jet-Powered TankJuly 5, 2012 by: Nishant Panwar
Does speed thrill you so much that your heart skips a beat? Do the races of all these mean machines give you an adrenaline rush?
What about the drag racing then? Well if the above two answers are “Yes” then surely the third one with no doubts will be a “Yes” too.
And if I tell you that I am not talking about the drag racing of cars and bikes but of “TANKS”. Shocked- right, but what can I say it’s just true.
After conquering most of Asia with their tenacity and vigor the Japanese are honored to give you yet another demo of their excellence – their “Secret Weapon”. Japan’s so called “Secret Weapon” is a jet powered tank (a fake one) is a dragster powered by Westinghouse J34 jet engine used by the US Air Force jets (used in the late 40’s and early 50’s). Thinking about horsepower and speed then let me give you the specifications – 17000 horsepower and can reach 500km/h.
This powerful dragster tank costs 2,500,000JPY ($32000 approx.). It dragged on the Fuji speedway which has the longest straight of all the GP circuits. Who knows one day they would actually use it in the Warfield.
Well, so now you could surely give Japans technology a high-five and a salute to their technology and the innovative minds working hard to get you the most impressive and unbelievable masterpieces of all times.
