When a Tank Hits a Wall

When a Tank Hits a Wall

During a recent tank drill by the Russian army one of the T-72B3 “Burevestnik” got into an accident that caused it to hit a concrete or brick wall at full speed. One might imagine that the tank, with all its mass, going at high speed, should crush the wall, however, this probably only happens in movies. In reality the wall has damaged the tank a lot, in fact the armored plates cracked in multiple places baring the inner parts of the tank. The photo above shows the tank after the hit, there are a few more photos of the details inside:

A tank is a machine, and machines don’t like to be crashed into hard objects. Its wheels were damaged too.

  1. Some crew members were undoubtedly badly injured. There are no seat belts in a tank. Any collision severe enough to damage the hull as seen in the photos would have thrown the crew forward.

  2. This was international tank biathlon 2015, Kuwait crew menage to flip the tank
