If you will look at this from distance, you will say “Is this a piece of metal junk? Somebody need to take it from here”. Well, you need to come closer and realize it is more than that. Called Sham 2 (I guess there is a Sham 1 out there), this customized 4-wheel device is a homemade tank from Syria.
If we take this picture out of context, you will believe that it’s just a dude playing his video games. Well, this is the interior of the Homemade “Sham 2” Tank. These folks are controlling the firepower with a PS3 like controller. Good idea, but not very dependable.
I think you have to be very brave to venture into a battle with this Tank. It looks solid, but I’m not sure about its resistant in a real battlefield. A Youtube comment said that it’s the perfect defense against rubber bullets. True! Even so, it’s a great project worth watching.
