50 Pimp Up Your Tank

Pimp Up Your Tank

This vehicle was made from Russian “BRDM”, if to translate literally it is “Combat Reconnaissance/Patrol Vehicle”, armored scout car made in Russia. There were plenty of such in Arabic countries like Iraq or Iran or Syria also. But this is not a regular military vehicle. It was bought by a Moscow entrepreneur and was pimped up heavily. First of all it is an amphibian vehicle – it can both move by roads and swim by rivers or lakes. It is powered with V8 5.5 diesel engine  to carry its multi ton body across the Russian roads. It has four general wheels  but there are four more, hidden under its bottom, if somebody comes to a road like this he
can push a button and use four additional wheels to make his road. It has of course a multi speaker sound system, GPS navigation, TV, DVD and a periscope to see clearly what’s going on when you are swimming across the nearest lake. Also there is a sonar mounted with which the car owner can monitor the water under his so to say car. Night vision system is there too. The car is fully registred in road inspection so the owner can drive across the normal roads, and then go to the lake for some fishing or water skiing, after that at night he can come to Moscow casino without visiting home.
