15 Cool and Artistic Tank Themed Designs

Armed warfare always requires the ubiquitous tanks, in order to move into the enemy land, as Tanks protect the soldiers from the other side and allow them to move further into hostile territory. Tanks are thus strong, all weather and completely armored. The funny thing about tanks is that you could find weird and bizarre looking tanks in almost every country.

There is a theory behind it, which observes that the opposite side always gets intimidated when they see a fierce looking tank headed their way. Perhaps there is some grain of truth in that assumption, but we managed to gather a great list of 15 really cool tank designs that are completely weird and bizarre not just in looks, but also in their utility. Of course, many of these tanks are not war-worthy and they are just meant for the purpose of fun.

Cool Tank Mods

Sometimes, things that are not tanks or related to wars could also be modded into something like a tank. Here are a couple of examples.

The Hummer H2 Tank Mod would be a great gift to anyone who loves hummers. It has been created deftly.

This Artful Tank might be created by using cardboard. There is hardly any information but it just may suggest that wars are futile and the war machinery should therefore be reduced to art.
