1494962197_T-80U-South-Korea.jpg

We all know that the Russian tanks get exported everywhere, but sometimes they pop up at unexpected places. This is a T-80U tank, one of the best MBTs the Soviet Union had. Only, it’s not in Soviet Service – it’s in South Korea! 33 vehicles of this type were given by Russia to South Korea…   [ далее ]

1494869303_T-64A-East-Germany.jpg

The T-64 tank series is known for being the “internal” Soviet tank (while everyone else got various T-72s). That does not, however, mean that these tanks were only stationed in the Soviet Union. These photos were taken in in 1985. This T-64A belonged to the 32nd Guards Tank Division, located at the time in East…   [ далее ]

The 150mm muzzle brake gun is not on the original drawings, it was added by Wargaming. This, of course,…   [ далее ]
