Royal Engineer, Maj. Martel, invented a one-man tank that replicates the medieval knight in armour, with the addition of â€˜caterpillar track legsâ€™ and a â€˜petrol engined heartâ€™. The contraption is fashioned from car parts and farming tractors. One of its singular features its ability to be turned from a civilian machine into fighting artillery overnight, thus saving money.
