Hollywood actor Brad Pitt has undergone training to drive a tank for his new World War Ii movie Fury.

The Fight Club star appears as a member of an American tank crew on a mission in Germany in the upcoming film, and he has been spotted learning how to handle one of the giant machines at a training ground in the U.K.

Pitt was photographed working with an instructor behind the wheel of a tank in England on Tuesday (03Sep13) and was seen riding around in the vehicle while hanging out of the hatch.

Fury is due to hit cinemas next year (14).
