In the south of the Krasnoyarsk region, a farmer by the name of Ivan Ivanov is using an old T-62 tank (or so they claim, I think it’s just a T-54/55) to plow fields (he gets hired by other companies to do it for them). The vehicle is capable of reaching speeds of 20-22 km/h on the field. It was actually the dream of his father to rebuild a tank to farming equipment, the conversion was home-made by the farmer himself (by removing the turret and installign a Kirovets tractor superstructure) and proved to be an excellent piece of farming equipment, exceeding a regular tractor several times. It consumes 70 liters of fuel per hour, which is, according to Ivan Ivanov’s customers, economical, because a regular tractor would take 8 hours to plow the same field a tank can plow in one. Ivanov got the tank after the 90′s army reduction as surplus.
