Why was a tank driving around a Miami neighborhood?


Video on social media showed what looked like a military tank driving around a Florida (Palmetto Bay) neighborhood on Sunday. Some residents wondered if the tank was part of a military operation. But a spokesperson with the Florida National Guard said the tank was not part of its fleet, and military experts said the tank appeared to be a British combat vehicle. The matter was cleared up by police: “The vehicle belongs to a private collector of decommissioned, surplus military items. The vehicle in question is demilitarized and unarmed. It was purchased as a collector item and was being delivered to the owner at the time that the video circulating social media was taken.”
