….machines that helped to defeat the Nazis from Laos to use in military parades after it ran out

"The Russian military is running so low on its iconic World War II Soviet tanks Moscow was forced to ship replicas from Laos.

A consignment of 30 Soviet-era T-34 tanks arrived at the eastern port of Vladivostok on New Year's Day and were taken on a long journey on the Trans-Siberian Railway to a military base near Moscow.

It was thought the military vehicles have been in active service since 1987 until the famous tanks were brought back to Russia and shipped more than 2,700 miles by the Lao People's Army…."

Lord, I wish people would learn to write. I spent the first part of the article wondering how Nazis got to Laos.

Agree, poorly written. And how are these "replicas"?

"Russian TV channel Zvezda earlier said the T-34-85 provided for Laos had been manufactured in 1944…"

Hells teeth, The Daily rant has always been written by appallingly bad journos but now it seems its using 3 year olds to write for them.

How did Nazis get to Laos? Same way they got to the moon – Flying saucers!

@Lee494: South American Spanish for "gulp".

Wow, the Daily Fail has now reached rock bottom and started blasting in terms of readability of what they're trying to say.

Wonder if the Laotians managed to get a 1-for-1 trade for T72s…

Maybe he's talking about the former SS men in the Foreign Legion over in French Indochina? They'd certainly have recognized T-34s.

Well the FFL did have a large number of Germans in their ranks after WWII. Some from Hitler Youth, as well as many other units. I'm sure some may have fought on the Eastern Front.
