Want a Russian Tank, take one, their being abandoned.

The Russian army is embroiled in an embarrassing scandal after 200 of its tanks were found abandoned near a forest in central Russia, unguarded and unlocked.

A news website near the city of Yekaterinburg posted a video of the forgotten tanks showing passers-by clambering inside the vehicles and playing with empty ammunition belts. The only items that seemed to be missing were live rounds and the keys to the tanks' ignitions.

"There are tanks all over the forest, abandoned," an unnamed reporter on the video says. "If you need one, come and get it."

Getting parts would be a bitch.

Shipping would be pretty high too.

Since it's local I'm going to see about getting a tour once their website is back up and, if I do get to go there, there will be pictures.
