  1. 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.

  2. 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.
