The title pretty much tells you what’s going to happen here. An ‘allegedly’ drunk Russian army chap drives a tank into a lamp post. Boy oh boy he’s going to be in trouble. HA HA HA! The way he’s thrown about on the top of the vehicle thanks to his madcap driving is excellent, possibly even better than the inevitable prang. I did a literal LOL all on my own in the flat, and that happens far too rarely these days. You’ll like this, I promise. Thank the Lord for Russian dash-cams, that’s all I can say.
Here’s some geeky info about the tank from one of the video’s uploaders, feel free to skip:
“The BMD-1 is a Soviet airborne amphibious tracked infantry fighting vehicle, which was introduced in 1969 and first seen by the West in 1970. BMD stands for Boyevaya Mashina Desanta (Боевая Машина Десанта, literally “Combat Vehicle of the Airborne”). It can be dropped by parachute and although it resembles the BMP-1 it is in fact much smaller. The BMD-1 was used as an IFV by the Soviet Army’s airborne divisions. An improved variant of BMD-1 was developed, the BMD-2. The BMD-1 also provided a basis for the BTR-D airborne multi-purpose tracked APC.”
So there you go, here’s the jokes:
