Ha! This is an M577 TOC vehicle. I used to be able to hit about 45mph on the Autobahn with the M113A2 version. Which still put us in the extremely-slow lane!

I was reading this earlier,stolen from the National Guard armory.It is a miracle that nobody got killed by this drunk fool.This does remind me of the time of when the guy stole the M-60 Patton on a joyride and caused all that destruction .

First, we definitely need a new-tool M1068 after all these years. Tamiya? AFV Club? Trumpeter? Dra....er, nevermind.

Second, he claims he was neither drunk nor on illegal drugs, despite the field observations of the arresting officers. He does have a point that the vehicle was prepped for the ride he took it on, but he's still a lunatic.

He said his commanding officer told him to do it as part of a field test on how prepared the local police are. What a yutz.
