This is one way to test a tank’s breaks (VIDEO)

The driver of a Leopard tank used 23 Dutch volunteers to demonstrate the effectiveness of the tank’s emergency breaking system.

As the 62.3-ton behemoth barrels down on the group, they stand motionless with their back towards the tank.

It comes screeching to a halt mere feet away and finally they turn around to celebrate. Whether they are celebrating the tank’s “stopping power” or the fact they are still alive is unknown.
