Drive A Tank, the only venue in the United States where civilians can drive authentic military tanks, is pleased to announce it has added a Russian-designed T-55AM Main Battle Tank named Red Dawn to its fleet of military vehicles.

A symbol of Russian military might during the cold war, the 45-ton T-55 was designed and built from the ground up to destroy enemy tanks, similar to NATO’s Chieftain Main Battle tank, which Drive A Tank also offers to drive as part of its car-crush package.

Drive A Tank is one of only two known venues in the world where civilians can drive main battle tanks and is the only one in the United States.

In addition to the new Russian tank, Drive A Tank is also now offering a new top line experience for adrenaline junkies called the Commander-In-Chief package. 

Not for the faint of heart, this hands-on and in-the-driver’s-seat adventure is the most extravagant tank driving, machine gun shooting, car crushing package on the planet.  As the VIP, you will drive four different tanks on several challenge courses, each with its own unique driving style, including:

· Convoy style driving in an Abbot Self Propelled Gun
· Enclosed combat style driving in an Armored Personnel Carrier
· Intricate, precision driving in the T-55
· Car crushing in the Chieftain

After you wash off the dirt and diesel smoke, Drive A Tank will make your heart pound again in the indoor shooting range where you test fire a plethora of military firearms, from a .30 caliber WWII belt-fed machine gun to a current issue .50 Caliber Barrett long range rifle.

Located in Kasota, Minnesota, Drive A Tank’s mission is to offer adrenaline-inducing quasi-military adventures. With nine authentic military tanks and several military vehicles that have been used in actual combat, you can drive a tank in a combat scenario and run over just about anything that gets in your way, including cars and mobile homes!  Prices start at $400 and top out at $3,495 for the mobile home trailer trashing experience.
