"They have a tank!"―Indiana Jones spying on the Nazis[src]
On the way to the Grail Temple, there was an ensuing fight on the tank. As Indiana Jones was busy fighting Colonel Ernst Vogel on the top of the tank, his father, Henry and Marcus Brody were making their escape. The tank was destroyed shortly after the Hatay driver was indirectly killed by a Nazi soldier knocked unconscious by Brody. With nobody at the controls, the tank drove aimlessly off a nearby cliff, killing everyone aboard except Indiana Jones.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Mark VII Tank was a replica vehicle built on an old excavator chassis. It was based on the real-world Tank Mark VIII which possessed no main top turret.
The Tank idea was used from the Chris Columbus' unmade Indiana Jones and the Monkey King script, which was one of the scripts that were considered to be the third Indiana Jones film, before it became Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. However, in Columbus' script, that Tank was enormous and could raze the entire jungle.
