Drifting in a Tank.

Just past half way, after the smoke screen bit, you see a tank actually drifting.   Awesome.

    Wow, those guys were having way too much fun. Those things must hurt when you land from catching air...
    I want to play around with a tank.  ;D
    If I saw a guy with a 60cu/ft safe filled to the brim with nothing but Jennings, Lorcins and Hi-Points, I'd look at the guy and say "Right on brother".

    The video has been probably to be compiled from VTSU Zahorie (Slovakian weapon testing institute) footage.
    The armored 4*4 car at the beginning of the show is ALIGATOR. It has been developed at Slovakia and it's used by Slovakian army and LE. The 6*6 APC looks like Steyer Pandur that has been issued by Czech Army lately. Maybe Slovaks tested them too. The 6*6 armored truck seems to be TATRAPAN armored command post, based on Tatra 815 truck.
    That tank spreading smokescreen looks like T-72M4CZ modernised T-72, but it might be Slovakian upgrade of T-72 which name I can't remember.
    That BMP1 named COBRA has some experimental turret probably unmenned.

    Testing new weapon sytems is fun. ;D

    Pity, I never get to that :(

    Man I wanted to get into an armored unit when I enlisted, but Virginia didn't have any so I joined artillery.  Now every time I see a tank or Bradely or whatever, I sigh and look forlorn.   :-\

    Umm, that was drifting a bit, but right after he's fishtailing almost out of control...
    I would love that armored scout car in the beginning, looks like a blast, and a cool bug out vehicle. But that APC/armored truck at the end? Kill zone waiting to happen.

    Can I just be the first to say that I NEVER want to get into a fight with an armored vehicle?

    Famous Joe and Willie cartoon from WWII, the two of them watching a Sherman tank, "Nah, not for me, a moving foxhole attracts the eye."
