Don’t tanks have guns?

A disabled man has been stopped from using his specially-made wheelchair because British road authorities say it’s a tank.

Jim Starr, 36, was told by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DLVA) he cannot ride his specially-made chair, which has caterpillar-treads instead of wheels, because its size and width technically make it a tank.

If a tracked vehicle over a certain width (the problem here) is a tank then aren’t crawler tractors also tanks?
