"A ‘brave hero' reached out to me, and as soon as we made sure that the money had been transferred, and the hero was already ‘safe', we posted the result. The Tigr will undergo a little rehabilitation and will be prepared for combat."

How much for a new or slightly used, T-14?

Need "free" deliver to be included with the "deal".

A rare beast, some claim it does not exist at all.

It says $50,000 USD for a "tank"

IN the Cold War days it was a few bottles of vodka!

Tally Ho!

It says $5,000 USD and not for a TANK. Unless edited!
Pretty cheap for a runner, against modern weapons possibly used to take it out! ;)

Rather go for a nice light AA gun

BMP, BMD, etc. – $25,000 USD
MLRS – $15,000 USD
Self-propelled guns, etc. – $10,000 USD
Armoured vehicles – $5,000 USD

With a name like Heedless he won't listen.

Details: Vanek Nikolaev's Telegram channel reported that Vitalii Kim paid US$5,000 for the Tigr.

Yep, $50,000 USD for a Tank.
Accepted… just went with headline. My Bad. But it ain't a Tank.

Nice to hear, anyway But think Ukrainians are getting plenty for free!

Would query MLRS being cheaper than a BMP ? Though presumably Russian kit.
Rather dubious on re-reading.

Reports are Russian males are also fleeing Russia to get out of having to join what the Russians call a "Military". Who knows, some may end up at the USA's Southern border ? Seems everybody else is !

Is way into the US over its southern bordet? Is it quicker than the queues at JFK?

BM-21 "Grad" is the most common Russian MLRS. Not worth a lot.

Good point Soledad … Two million illegal aliens can't be wrong …😁

But I think they missed the flights to Martha's Vineyard.🤩

Part of the deal is that the Russians selling said vehicles are given a ride home.

1984 or abouts

a buddy of mine worked for Raytheon and one day his boss asked can you take apart a 14.5 machine gun. seems someone bought a command (with radios) from Romania which was put on a boat which transferred it to anther boat in the waters off Greece and shipped to US.

unfortunately it was just a BTR seems the CIA got shorted

I saw it through the fence driving by and asked my friend hey it that a BTR where you work

He said what BTR.

later in year an SA 8 showed up then a ZSU lol
