Video: CJNG Parades Monster Narco-Tank Through El Aguaje, Michoacan

 The Jalisco New Generation Cartel and its new tank in the community of El Aguaje.

CJNG shows off its fire power by actually parading the narco-tank in the State of Michoacán. An armored vehicle towed the tank in broad daylight through a community in Aguililla.

A video in which members of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) show off an armored “narco-tank” apparently seized from a rival criminal organization has surfaced on social media.

The video shows an armored vehicle emblazoned with the CJNG initials towing a homemade tank, which was seized from the Viagras crime gang in the Tierra Caliente region of Michoacán, according to local media reports.

Six heavily-armed men and one women ride on the stolen tank as it is paraded in broad daylight down a street in El Aguaje, a town in the municipality of Aguililla.

“Another little gift,” one of the men says, while other cartel members declare that they are “pura gente del Señor Mencho,” or “only Mencho’s people.”

"El Mencho" is the nickname of Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, the fugitive leader of the CJNG and Mexico’s most wanted drug lord.

The CJNG, widely considered Mexico’s most powerful and dangerous criminal organization, frequently makes videos to show off its vast firepower. One posted online last July showed some 75 masked gunmen alongside a long convoy of armored vehicles.

The Jalisco cartel is involved in vicious turf wars with other criminal organizations in different parts of Mexico including the SRLC , Santa Rosa de Lima Cartel in Guanajuato and the Viagras in Michoacán.

The CJNG has recently gone on an offensive in Michoacán’s Tierra Caliente, attacking several towns in the region. Just last week, a drone captured footage of 11 armored CJNG vehicles moving into the municipality of Tecaltepec, which borders Aguililla, from nearby communities in Jalisco.

According to local media reports, the cartel is attempting to capture or kill Juan José Farías, allegedly a criminal/self-defense force leader known as "El Abuelo" (The Grandfather) who heads up the eponymous Cartel del Abuelo.

Michoacán was Mexico’s sixth most violent state in 2020 in terms of the number of homicides. The only states with more murders were Guanajuato, Baja California, México state, Chihuahua and Jalisco.

Armored vehicles similar to those that appear in the new cartel video have been seen previously in Michoacán and other parts of the country. Just over a year ago, the army seized a “narco-tank” in Michoacán nicknamed “El Monstruo” (The Monster) that allegedly belonged to the Viagras. Another “monster” was found by community police in Guerrero in 2019.

  1. I wonder if these rusty pieces of shit can actually take a rocket launcher hit.

  2. Animo Sicarios!
    There is an RPG-7 on my tactical backpack to destroy any armored motorized vehicle used by los contras.
    As part of the military training all Gente Nueva Special Forces Tier One specialist study the famous Bazukazo incident from the infamous Macho Prieto by code el 11 .

  3. Who’s that fat guy lol he’ll be the first one down for sure

    1. Seems like a women
      You can hear her at the end of the video

    2. YES, there is a woman involved.

  4. Fuerzas Especiales Mencho (FEM) is a new group name. Haven’t seen it before this video came out.

  5. (FEM) was already around but it was thrown around as a joke since last year in CD Guzman and Tamazula. It came to light around those group of people when the NP banners began to emerge, but got squashed within a couple months. Those two factions are the most powerful in the southern part of the state as well as the Teca faction. That trifecta is usually the one responsible for pushes into Michoacán on a weekly basis. For those that are from around the area you’ll know what I’m talking about.

  6. El M2 and El Maguey the two that terrorize the Viagras and their former allies el Cartel de Tepaltepc, Los Reyes Poncho La Quringa is el Maguey's cousin and the bum smashers of the Viagras and the females of Los Toyanos, the fake Templarios Nazario didn't just get played by his people he got played by the Fake Tempalrios he went and became apart of just a bunch of Masons playing house. Should have kept his ego in Check and played nice with the loyal one that was El Chango Mendez. Never truste a school teacher and a mitotero joto de Kike Plancarte who liked prostitutes to carrot his bum hole. Mencho is going to get his revenge like he got it with El Gerardon ice pick to the heart and a fat beating ended his life. El Maguey I hope Mencho doesn't let these dude die their is quality and their is shit and these guys are the finest Gallos you can find in all of Mexico.

    1. Very true not everyone knows them facts.

    2. That dudes fake a clown.

    3. @7:25 can't say regarding M2 since I don't believe he was the one interviewed by the VICE reporter. It looks to be the dude on his left side, El Delta, who mentioned he had been imprisoned in the US for drug crimes and also El Maguey in his most recent interview with Sargy also said he was imprisoned in the US.
      Unlike Gallinas Unidas, CJNG not playing the part about saying they're PUEBLO wearing white shirts pero chingando a la gente inocente. "Somos narcotraficantes, ese es nuestro trabajo y negocio, no estar chingando a la población quitándoles lo que ganan trabajando honradamente"+/-
      @11:15 yup he's so much of a clown CULITOS UNIDOS hasn't been able to get him out of La Ruana. NPMP

    4. You're wrong my guy. That was El M2. He says in the beggining "venimos a visitar una muy burna elementA . As in GIRL.. you know who he's talking about right? His supposed ex GF= La KATRINA. The one killed in that confrontation with Mexican Military and where he was supposedly captured . Also. You're looking To the wrong person. M2 in that video on top of the tank is the one with the facial hair. And the glasses that takes his time finding footing off the truck. Just so u can rest assured look up EL M2 and you'll see his famous TAN SCAR rifle . There's a pic of him that's taken on some sort of bridge where u can see his rifle. It's the same one that he had in the VICE interview. Look at his style of dressing in the pic, the interview and this video. Now look at the plate carrier, it has the same setup and "comandante CJNG" just like the vice interview . Do ur homework. El Maguey looks different only think similar is theyre both slim

    5. @6:40 the lack of his glasses and tone of voice threw me off in accepting that it's M2 in the VICE interview since in two known pictures of him he's wearing gafas just as he is in this last video.
      I also agree with 7:25 that M2 and Maguey are gallos finos. Puro Michoacán

  7. Chihuahua was really hidden last year. I went last year during fall around cuauhtemoc and it seemed pretty calm. Guanajuato was hell on earth literally but it seems like the state is not as much heated anymore

    1. Thats cuz ncdj took back la manzana from cds
