WATCH | Merkava Tank Rolls Over As It Is Loaded Onto Flatbed Lorry

Posted by

Footage has been shared on social media of the moment when a Merkava tank rolls onto its roof as it is loaded on to the back of a flatbed lorry.

The footage starts as the driver of the tank lines himself up with the ramp on the back of the lorry.

After a few moments, the tank starts to creep up the ramp as all seems to be in order.

But once the tank is on the back of the vehicle, it accelerates as military personnel jump out of the way.

One soldier, who was stood behind the cab of the lorry, narrowly avoids getting struck by the tank as he jumps out of the way with seconds to spare.

The tank comes to a rest on its roof before soldiers run over towards it.

It is not known why the accident happened or what caused it, although there has been some mention on various military groups of the pedal getting stuck.

Thankfully, nobody was hurt.
