Here's an interesting looking T-64, that you don't see everyday, given the large banner on the glacis.

I'd never seen one like it before, but if the caption is right, it belongs to the DPR:

Another option, instead of unmarked, or just plain, boring, white stripes, and/or flags, for your tanks.

Looks like they may be exceeding the safe passenger limit as well.

I think that "banner" is just an Oriental rug………

Don't think much of the reactive armour.

Yeah, I don't think they like that idea either.

"Hey Yuri, do you think we're just ablative armor for this tank?"
"Shut up Ivan, at least you don't have to walk…"

The crew are obviously very house proud: wipe your feet before climbing aboard you lot….

Oooooh, I've got camouflage, a black balaclava, and orange ear muffs!

Ah, so perhaps a foot-wipe placed there by the fastidious commander, to keep their tank from getting too muddy.

Brilliant!

Looks like about a dozen cases of castration via ERA waiting to happen.

You lot are letting your guard down. I thought for sure that someone would point out that the presence of a Persian rug on the DPR tank is a clear indication of Iranian involvement in the Ukranian conflict and that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard can't be too far behind. Why has no one demanded that the US bomb Iran before it's too late for Kiev! Are we becoming more nuanced or is this just sloth?

Cheers.

Rod, I think your off. Maybe the rug is from Turkey.

You guys just don't see the potential of flying tanks.
