Commandeering Enemy Tanks and armored vehicles

During the civil war in Yugoslavia, a Croatian grandmother named Rozika Militic (also spelled Rozsika Milicic), "the battling granny", along with her sons and grandsons, captured a Serbian tank, then sent a request to Croatian military headquarters in Karlovac for an operations manual. The Croats then turned the tank against the Serbs with Rozika commanding the tank, and her progeny driving and operating the weapons.

18 MAY 1995- A man goes on a rampage in a stolen M60 tank in San Diego, California. The tank was stolen from a National Guard armory. Police later managed to open the hatch and shoot the man to death.
