Arnold Schwarzenegger has a new tank

That’s right! Matt McDaniel over at Yahoo! Movies was one of the lucky journalist who was fortunate enough to see Arnold Schwarzenegger’s new tank in person.

Matt reports that:

The tank in question in an M47 Patton. Produced between 1951 and 1953, the 50-ton behemoths are still in service across the globe 60 years later. And Schwarzenegger told me and an assembled group of around 15 journalists on Friday that this was “exactly the very tank that I drove in the Austrian Army when I was 18 years old.”

We would totally be interested to find out more about the restoration.  Hard to believe these are still in action.

Below is some awesome video Matt captured with Arnold was giving a “demo” on the tanks crushing abilities!
