    Repair?? Overhaul?? It’s a junk yard for scrap metal. There is no repair going on.

    After toxic clean up….sink them in the ocean. These old pieces of junk make good artificial reefs. The fish love ’em. Melt down the parts and make new steel for cars and farm tools.

    Is the perimeter secure?! There is much ERA (Explosive Reactive Armour) lying about.

    Are you serous look at all those tanks just sitting there is this what the Russian government does with all it’s money. I can’t get over how much scrap metal it just laying around this country if I could I’d get a tanker ship go over and collect it

      Lol. Hey genius. Sorry to interrupt your anti-Russian rantings, but this is Ukraine, not Russia.

      Try again.

        What that’s not anti Russia that’s the truth sorry I didn’t take notice of the “Ukraine” tag. But are you going to tell all of us that Russia doesn’t have a lot of military surplus just sitting in the forests. Come on dude hay check this out I’ll even cut you in what do you say I’m sure the Ukrainians wont mind if we rid them of all that crap I mean scrap 😉

        • vorontsevich (f/k/a ayaa) says:

          Your point being? The Russian government and the military have better ways to spend their money than to overhaul old, obsolete tanks that have long expired their service life.

      • ptc says:

        In Russia is even worse. Look at all these rusty ships and submarines in Murmansk military harbor.

    When goes a shipment to Zimbabwe?

    What if I want to buy one?

  7. WWtS says:

    Sweet Lenin, such a waste.

  8. Xoliul says:

    Wow, pretty crazy. I’m also surprised that you can just walk between all those tanks equipped with Reactive armor…
    Also a very stark contrast with the US Lima Army Tank Plant…

    well, they actually tried to do some overhauling (like that http://i020.radikal.ru/1102/f8/4ee70a9bf939.jpg), but nobody seems to be really interested in founding em bigscale

  10. Otis R. Needleman says:

    Enough tanks there to fight a few wars.

  11. Mercal says:

    Russia is the arms market of the world. Anything is for sale in Russia with the right money amount, the fish rots head-down.

    Russia was ruined by Communist Regime.

  12. UbiKentang says:

  13. scud-werfer says:
