In the world of YouTube stardom, defending your popularity calls for unconventional measures.

Imagine a civilian armed not with conventional weapons, but with a 56-ton British Army Chieftain Tank-turned-RC-TRV, ready to wreak havoc for the sake of 'Views.' Meet Cody Detwiler, aka WhistlinDiesel, who transformed a decommissioned war machine into a remote-controlled spectacle.


Equipped with a handheld wireless console, Cody's tank unleashes chaos, effortlessly obliterating vans, trees, and even a vertically-flipped 40-foot container.


The Chieftain, once a battlefield behemoth, now roars through an improvised obstacle course, leaving destruction in its wake.

With a history dating back to 1966, this tank, armed with a 120mm rifle-bore gun and formidable armor, was a force to be reckoned with in its prime.

But as the tank conquers challenges, karma strikes - a malfunction in the gearbox signals the end of Cody's remote-operated tanking ambitions for the day. Despite its decommissioned state, the Chieftain, under Cody's command, adds a thrilling chapter to its legacy, showcasing the power of unconventional entertainment in the digital age.
