Sariel is back with a bang! This is his latest project, a ridiculously complicated – and brilliant – replica of the most advanced tank in the world; the South Korean K2 Black Panther. Costing $8.5 million each, making it the most expensive tank in the world, the K2 features lazer lock-on weapons, 55 calibre smoothbore gun and an incredible In-Arm Suspension design which allows the tank to sit, stand or kneel depending upon the terrain.
Sariel has recreated it all (apart from the lazer lock-on, although he’ll probably manage that soon) and details the build fully at his blog, sariel.pl.
Sadly the situation in the Korean Peninsula is looking increasingly unstable, as the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea, who looked on the verge of softening their stance, seem to have returned to their isolated and antagonistic state of mind*. With nuclear weapons on one side of the DMZ, and K2 Black Panthers on the other, we’re just pleased The Lego Car Blog office is a long, long way from it all.
To see the full gallery of Sariel’s K2, visit his blog at the link above, or see the tank in action on YouTube here.
