Arquus Scarabee
Why bother with slow tanks, when you could be driving an Arquus Scarabée (Beetle) on the battlefield? This Volvo-owned company specializes in manufacturing battlefield-ready vehicles, and their latest model features two engines in the back (one electric / one diesel) that help propel the 6.6-ton vehicle to a top speed of 75mph. The coolest feature is probably its ability to drive sideways, since each of its wheels are powered. Read more for a video and additional information.

“The firm used composite materials to provide the best protection for the four-manned vehicle, which can also be remote controlled. Each of the vehicle’s wheels are powered, which gives it its crab-like ability to drive sideways – which can be used to avoid mines with ease. Scarabée can also be dropped from a place without a parachute – provided it is from a low height,” reports The Daily Mail.
