The T-34 was a Soviet medium tank produced from 1940 to 1958. Although its armour and armament were surpassed by later tanks of the era, it has been often credited as the most effective, efficient and influential design of World War II. 70 years have gone since WWII was over. But
Soviet tanks are still respected and still serve in other 26 countries! In Russia it can mostly be seen as a monument today (as on the photo above), but somewhere in Europe, in the Balcan countries, many of them still operate just as seen on the photos below.
It seemed to be impossible to get to this TV tower in St. Petersburg without a pull. But there are always guys who are ready to prove there's nothing impossible. It's rather dangerous to go higher than 656 feet where used to be an observation deck - the antennas radiation can cause irreversible effects for
health. So it remains to catch the moment when the antennas are off - when preventive measures are taken. It means a lot of technicians being there though... Thus it cannot be easy anyway. Now we are going to climb the height of 1000 feet, there is nothing higher in St. Petersburg...
