Its the wrong kind of tank!

Wow. Real life; guaranteed to be stranger than fiction. :)
From a fwd in the original post here

The temple priests admiringly inspect the rear armour slats on their newly acquired Abrams M1A2 temple tank.
The mix-up apparently occurred when a wealthy NRI devotee had misunderstood a request from the temple trust, asking him to donate a new tank to commemorate the annual temple 'Thiruvizhaa' this year. “We had sent a letter to the devotee, Mr. Shankar Sundaram of Cleveland (which is in 'States'), indicating that our temple needed a tank for many years. He has very kindly and promptly responded to our request. Sadly, it's the wrong kind of tank. Heh heh.”, said the temple head-priest Aravind Adigal.
