A Ukrainian Boneyard For Soviet Tanks

      Defense Tech recently posted some interesting pictures showing hundreds of T-62s, T-72s, T-80, and their engines rotting away in an armor repair facility near Kharkov. You can see a lot of reactive armor still remains on the sides of the tanks, along with some infrared floodlights. Though, all the the machine guns used as the secondary armament have been removed. I wonder how hard it is to make one of these street legal.... Click here to see more photos from the photographer's website.

Reminds me of bygone Victory Parades through Red Square. Thank God they never came through the Fulda Gap.
