Man from Omsk builds a Lada Tank

A car enthusiast from Samara, Russia, has built a tracked Lada from leftover car parts and scrap metal. He was inspired by a video he saw on TV about how the tracked vehicles easily go wherever they want, so he decided to build one for himself. He even named it similarly to how tanks are named in Russia. He called it T-21099. Let’s see inside how he built it and what parts he took from where.  Looks cool, doesn’t it?

“Because of my profession”, says Andrei (he is working in car repair shop), “I have a lot of old parts from other cars”.

“So I took the old Lada body, and some wheels from a Moskvich. There are also plenty of parts from UAZ and Gazel Russian cars”.

He says that he manually built the actual tracks. It took him one and a half months to complete them.

The car can go as fast as 65 km/h and consumes 16 liters per 100 km or roughly 14 mpg. Not very economical, but it can be used for different purposes like clearing snow in winter, for example.

  1. Is there any logical reason as to why all these images couldn’t be posted on one single page? Having to click through two images at a time is extremely annoying. I just can’t be bothered. Sorry.
