Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is known as a tough guy, and apparently, that’s just what the 1st Armored Division at Fort Bliss was looking for when they were pondering a name for one of their tanks.

“‘If you smell what America’s Tank Division is cooking!'” the 1st Armored Division wrote last week in a tweet.

“Shoutout to the #IronSoldiers assigned to the @Blackhawk_SQDN for naming one of their tanks in homage to the @TheRock. Hopefully the ‘People’s Champ’ will see it and give you guys a shoutout and a retweet! #TuesdayThoughts”

Johnson posted the tank news to his Instagram.

“I’m sending a salute of respect & gratitude to the Blackhawk Squadron 🇺🇸 1st Armored Division for the honor of naming their tank (the most advanced in the world) Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson,” he wrote. “Heavy duty, bad ass, sexy AF and built to take care of business 😉 — but most importantly, thank you all for your service. Grateful to the bone.”

While the majority of the comments have been positive, some people have taken issue with Johnson’s praise of the tank.

Here is a sampling of some of those comments:

“Wow … getting your name on a kill machine,” one person wrote.

“Those poor people in some random oil-rich country ain’t gonna know what’s hit ’em,” added a commenter.

“You’re obviously not stupid to know what you are representing or what this machine would do and to who — unfollow!” a disappointed follower chastised the star.

“How are you OK with people getting killed with your name?” a critic asked, while another wrote, “Not sure having a destructive weapon named after you is such a great honor.”

“That’s not something to be very proud of because it’ll be your name on that tank that’ll kill innocent people,” one person claimed.

“Well I really like you as a person and everything but what is a tank meant for? If it is to take the lives of human beings and others then it is not admirable… I hope it won’t be used… May God bless you all … Peace and Love,” one Instagram user said in response.

“Not sure having a destructive weapon named after you is such a great honor,” a fan claimed.
