Photo of the Day: John Deere “Tractor Tank”


This reproduction of a WWII era John Deere “Tractor Tank” was built by Brian Anderson and Leo Milleman of Ames, Iowa.  These vehicles were proposed by John Deere in 1940 as a low cost armored vehicle.  Prototypes were tested at Aberdeen Proving Grounds and rejected, then scrapped back at the factory.  For more on this rather unusual AFV, click here.
