Cool idea.

There's a place out east of town here that has a bunch of old golf carts, and I assume they are worthless junkers. I've pondered the idea of pedalizing one of them. It'd be a similar slow-speed pedaling experience. I'd like to see some video of the tank in action.

(Edit: Went back and looked at the video again, and it does show the tank in action, just buried in with a bunch of other content. And I agree about the 15 mph- doesn't look like they're ever moving over 5. If it weighs 2,000 lbs, that'd be the equivalent of 5 or 6 guys pushing a small car about- can be done, but not at 15 mph.)

I have a lot of trouble believing 6 people can get it moving 15MPH. It is very neat though.

Check it out, some Canadians built a 2-seater a few years ago:
