Photo of the Day: Russian invasion of Salisbury Plain

Several British tabloids have been reporting on a British Army exercise in which several Soviet built tanks were used to simulate a Russian attack on Eastern Europe. The exercise included a number of Polish T-72 tanks as well as a few other Soviet designs on loan from a private collector and the Tank Museum. These include some rather outdated T-55 tanks. The presence of these older vehicles prompted the Russian embassy in Lundon to tweet “Large-scale British exercises near Salisbury: imitation fight vs Polish-assembled T72s as a poor replacement for real stuff.”

    Well, the Brits could always go ask the Ukrainians to lend them T-72B’s confiscated from the Russians “vacationing” in Donbas.
