Shuddering Video of a Tank Showcasing its Stopping Capabilities

Normally when we perform brake tests, it will either involve a deserted area with no one to interfere or a testing lab with your test dummies to take the hit and the white coat boffins to record it, should it fail. Standard procedures for certifying that your car can safely come to a halt.

Even though such stringent tests are being followed, there’s always that small percentage of people who still wouldn’t leave satisfied. So, the Dutch have decided to take take things to the next level by showcasing the stopping capabilities of a 42-tonne Leopard tank using a group of well-dressed people (actual, living, non replaceable humans. Not dummies) as “stop-cones”. What comes later is nerve-wracking. Have a look.
