The woman on the phone oblivious to the T-28 rolling past is both hilarious and sad.

Or maybe it's just so damn common to see tanks rolling down the streets.

Reminds me of what Patrick Wright said about the Poles, about marking the passage of time by the different tanks that rolled through the country.

Fantastic to see pictures like this, vehicles that are kept in good condition and in running order. I doubt there are many T-34/76 or T-28 (uparmoured model that one, T-28E?) left out there in such good nick?

 

Just need a few KV's to round it off now.  :)

CIA and DIA not needed. Russian MoD has TV channel to do spying for them.

The really interesting stuff is how the electronics work. That you cannot see in some TV camera pans.

She is pissed because it has bigger breast than her (mg turrets)

IIRC the first one captured was taken burned out, but then restored and called the 'Lenin tank'.

Well, that's a way to avoid wear on the road.  Great use of the Christie suspension there.

Proving that it's better to burn out than fade away.... (someone had to say it)
