23. I'm confident that there are laws prohibiting tracked armored vechicles on public roads
You could probably drive a wheeled APC were you to comply with all safety laws (taillights, etc.).

As for needing to be a militant rich meathead, I believe all you have to be is rich...and not even that so much. A T-34/85 in lousy shape is only $33,500!
