With only a little tree to hide it this thing is literally in the whole middle of the street.

Oh... i wonder what is that blue thing behind this tree in the middle of London.


Oh yeah, a Soviet tank, that was obvious.


Though this is a very powerful war weapon it doesn't mean it can't go hippie sometimes. Love is over (if you want it)!


Nukes can be fun too, y'know.


Ready to fire captain, currently enjoying sunbath.


Imagine the soldiers walking behind during a military parade, come on, seriously, imagine.


These flowers have been designed so the tank would be invisible during hippie festivals in order to strike at the very core.


If you think about it, write "LOVE" on the tanks would be a pretty good way to disturb the enemy.


*Epic Alexandrov Ensemble song*


Last one where we can see the whole thing.


This tank has never been used at war, but it has been used in a movie (Richard III, 1995)!
Apparently it's the story of a guy who wanted to build a tenement, the Mayor said no.
So he ask if he could put a tank (reservoir) on his land, it has been approved.
So he put a tank, a panzer.
This guy is a genius, srsly.
Apparently the tank was aiming precisely at the so called Mayor, by the way.
His little nickname is Stompie.

The term "panzer" only applies to german tanks. (Sorry I'm a real tank geek!!) This is a T-34/85. It was the most used and produced russian tank of the war. Unlike its predecessor, this tank is equiped with an 85mm gun. Its got 45mm on both the front and the sides, and still is the third most produced tank in the world right now. Strangely, I've never quite seen the russians use that type of camouflage...

TheFlapjack : Yeah, pretty damn cool city.
The Boom : that was just to differentiate the different meanings of the word "tank". Panzer is a so cute word that it is used internationally haha, but that's a language abuse, you're right.
rioo :Well, the landlord do what he wants of his land.

Stompie, the little Hippie-Tank. Could be a classic kiddie story, like Thomas, the Tank Engine.
