“DRAGON” TANK

Entry Source: The James Bond Movie Encyclopedia by Steven Jay Rubin


Dr. No’s diesel-powered antipersonnel ATV on Crab Key in Dr. No. Equipped with a flamethrower and armor plate, and painted with dragon markings to frighten superstitious locals, the vehicle doesn’t deter Bond and Quarrel, who launch an ill-fated assault on the “monster.” The vehicle was based on a swamp vehicle first seen by Ian Fleming on the island of Inagua, Bahamas, in 1956.
