Wow. I don’t mean to be rude but, if you’re serious, your grasp of Physics is pretty poor.
This tank will weigh in the region of 25-40 tons.
A jet will weigh in the region of, for the era, less than 10 tons. There’s just no way even the awesome thrust of this engine could propel a tank faster even than a modern race car. It’s just too heavy, and no built for the speed.
Even with the jet flying at its fastest, with this engine, high up where the air is thinner and has less resistance, it could be travelling maybe 500m/s.
An explosion happens in the region of 7,000 m/s+, producing fragments which will vary hugely in speed but are likely to be in the region of 2,000m/s.
For reference, 100 mph (faster than any tank ever) is about 36 m/s.
It just doesn’t even compare.
