M4 Sherman Tank
When a lot of people think of a tank, the M4 Sherman battle tank comes to mind. Two reasons: they were effective, and there were a lot of them. Nearly 50,000 M4 tanks were produced before and during WWI. The only tank ever produced at a higher clip than the M4 was the Soviet T-34. Today, a M4 tank for sale will cost you about $250,000.

Centurion AVRE
The Centurion AVRE is fitted with an Ordnance BL 165mm L9A1 demolition gun firing a 64lb charge projectile up to 2000yds, a .30in No.7 MK 1 browning machine gun, and smoke dischargers. It is powered by a Rolls Royce Mk Meteor 4BH ‘V’12 cylinder 27 litre water cooled petrol engine producing 650bhp at 2500rpm which gives the Centurion a top speed of 21mph. This tank was used in the post WWII-days of for Britain – so in the 1950s, 21mph was pretty solid. It weighs 52 tons and carries a crew of 5.

Mk10 Chieftain Tank
The Chieftain takes the advancements of the Centurion a step further. While the Centurion established the concept of the ‘main battle tank’, the Chieftain took the MBT to the next level. When it was produced in the mid-60’s, it was faster than its predecessor with more powerful and versatile weaponry. Additionally, it was designed to outlast the previous tank’s mandated maintenance times. Today, this military tank for sale would cost you about $75,000.

Mowag Pirat
Possibly the most rare tank on our list of military tanks for sale to civilians…only 11 MOWAG Pirat’s were ever produced. They were prototypes designed for the Swiss Army, but the army decided to go with the American M113 instead. There is a rumor, that this Pirat is the last operational tank left that isn’t owned by a museum. This tank was painted blue for various films in Europe. An accurate price could not be determined on this military tank for sale to civilians.

Sd.Kfz. 251
Although it’s a half-track, we’re still going to consider this widely-used armored vehicle as a tank. The Sonderkraftfahrzeug 251, it’s official and difficult to pronounce name, was produced to the tune of over 15,000 editions. It was most heavily used by Nazi Germany during the years it was produced (1939-1945) – but other countries that also utilized this tank were: Poland, Russia, France, Greece, Netherlands, and Tunisia… continue reading here ▶
