Around 13 years ago, the site of the sinking of the U.S.S. Thomas Donaldson, a World War II-era transport ship, was discovered in the Barents Sea on Russia’s northern coast not far from their borders with Norway and Finland. In the past few years, the Russian Navy has pulled the tanks the ship was carrying from the…
A Belarusian military parade will have one less tank after this snafu. One 40-ton tank lost control during a practice run, sending it drifting into a light pole as if it was driven by That Guy leaving Cars and Coffee.
We all want to believe that the future is filled with amazing technology, the end of disease, interplanetary travel, and a thriving environment. But the good folks at Bozena Security Systems know that the future is made of armored plating and riot gear.
Thanks to this website designed to bankrupt those of us who love cars, I found out that there’s an absurdly rare Volkswagen-derived car for sale on eBay: a Porsche Type 823, which is just the pedant’s name for a wartime VW wearing a tank costume.
Joe and Kate bought a Dodge Journey from Fiat Chyrsler of Australia and what followed was three years of torture, according to the couple who made a big, big spectacle out of crushing their “Lemon” with a tank.
The Russians really seem to have a thing for snow, crappy little sedans and absurdly capable off-road vehicles. This guy’s home-brewed commuter tank marries all three concepts, and it may be one of my all-time favorites.
The craziest high-tech innovation to hit the battlefield in ages boasts millimeters-thick sheet metal, black powder time bombs, battering-blades and a heavy armament of bottle rockets. No—it isn’t the advanced replacement to the M1 Abrams battle tank, it’s the Ghanaian Kantanka and it’s laughably terrifying.
Quick cutscenes, dramatic music, shooting a helicopter from an upside-down flying tank? Somebody’s taking GTAV hellraising to a whole new level. I don’t even like watching people play video games and I’ve laughed through this twice.
German authorities have seized a Panther tank along with other military equipment from an elderly man in Heikendorf. According to the BBC, the tank was being kept in the man’s cellar (it’s unclear how he got it down there in the first place) and required another tank to recover. Over the course of nine hours, 20…
There's never enough things cut in half. My favorite books when I was a kid were cutaway books. Everything in the world should be cut in half and put on display. Like this Leopard I tank, the democratic heir to the Panzer and Tiger tanks that made the Wehrmacht famous and the first line of defense against the Soviets.
Beryozovo is a relatively peaceful village located on the Ob River far away in the Ural Mountains in Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug, a federal subject of Russia. It has around 7,000 residents, one of which just got a nasty surprise thanks to a local mechanic.
By most accounts, Syrian president Bashar al-Assad is not a very nice fellow, having killed some 25,000 people since uprisings began in his country during the Arab Spring.
The story of how newborn America won its independence from England, the greatest superpower of the era, is wonderful. It's got a great underdog to root for, noble and lofty ideals, and a trio of corners for every hat. But for a tale about war, it could use a little something else.
Are you still haunted by the memories of September 11? Do you have a vague, yet constant sense of unease about your own security and safety? Well, you're in luck: the 1973 Volkswagen Beetle with half-tracks and missile launchers that has kept America safe for years is now for sale.
During the offseason for Top Gear, the BBC's hit motoring show watched by millions, each of the three co-hosts has their own special routines. Jeremy Clarkson drives supercars in exotic locales. James May builds houses out of Legos. Richard Hammond comes to America and destroys houses and minivans with monster…
Ken Block's Gymkhana videos are proof of the amazing tributes to hoonage that can be created when you have a full race team, a professional camera crew and plenty of money from your sponsors to throw around. We're pretty sure this Polish hoon fest was created without any of these things, but it came out pretty cool…
Part snow crawler, part tank, this V8-powered monstrosity has been for sale by a New Jersey steelyard for some time now. So how did an armored crawler ended up in the Garden State?
When the Soviets mated a GAZ-53 truck and a DT-75 bulldozer the result was a go-anywhere transforming tracked ambulance. Incredible. The Soviets may have been America's mortal enemy, but damn, they built some really cool stuff. [English Russia]
There are no details of this tank, which could be from the Soviet Era. The picture finder says that some people suggested is a fog/smoke generator but, for its looks, it could be an armored antimatter cannon. [Updated: Target identified]
