But no, this is real according to France24. Named the “Sham II”, the “tank” has an old diesel car’s chassis with five cameras mounted on the outside and a machine gun on a turning turret. On the inside are several flat screen displays mounted on opposite ends, with the driver sitting on, controlling the tank with a steering wheel while a gunner is at the opposite end, aiming said machine gun with a Playstation controller. One wonders if they get force feedback as well.
Honestly, this isn’t too big a stretch of the imagination. Remember when Playstation 2 consoles were suspected of being powerful enough for missile launches?
