Mexican Drug Cartel Builds Its Own Tank
The war in northern Mexico between drug cartels and the Mexican government has raged for 4.5 years, with little end in sight – especially with the cartels starting to build tanks like this one, nicknamed “El Monstruo 2011“.
The Blog Del Narco reports that the tank was captured two weeks ago after a firefight outside Ciudad Mier in northern Mexico. The vehicle had a top speed of 110km/h, and could carry 12 people – but had no side shielding for its tyres, which ultimately led to its end.
