The Story of One Turret

Tskhinvali, South Ossetia. In August 8, 2008 a group of Russian-Ossetian soldiers brewed up three Georgian tanks. One of them was practically torn to pieces after the detonation.On the picture above is the place of the explosion.

The torn off turrent of the tank flew several dozens of meters, broke through the canopy of the building and got stuck in the porch.

This is the picture dated 2010.

The building has been recently reconstructed but the turret has been preserved to remember the war days.

    Love how there’s nothing left of the tank but a crater and a belly pan. Reminds me of the Iraq war where an American munition hit the tank and literally turned the turret inside out. And looking at the first picture, you realize they left the turret there because 15-20 feet of gun barrel is buried in the ground, permanently pinning it in place.

    There is an error on this page. Tskhinvali is not located in Georgia. It is the capital of the indepedent, sovereign Republic of South Ossetia.
