In the future, war has been eradicated, peace reigns supreme. However, before full peace can be obtained the weapons of war must be destroyed. That's where Tanx comes in.
The first sport to include tanks and their pilots as competitors, Tanx revolutionizes the way people ave fun. Set up your tank, strap in, and go blow something up.
