That T34 is not an MBT, the T-62 and Leopard are though. But what is that T-62 doing outside Ukraine?

Hmmm, Humvee, lets see how long it takes. Not a lot of Humvees around here.

Well, you have to know that Poland, before Berlin Wall collapsed, was a member of Soviet military block and have various types of military vehicles mostly made by Soviets. Then, after SU collapsed, all Eastern block countries had tones of Soviet military junk which was successfully withdrawn from its armies and went to hundreds of auctions post Eastern block wide.
This T-62 shown on picture is one of many other vehicles and other equipment being in private hands of two brother's collection.
I can only imagine how much money they have to spend to buy all those things.
And interesting thing is that almost all this military stuff (except aircrafts) is running.

Does a fish car count as amphibia? It goes well on land and has the potential to go in/on water....but only once.


If this is acceptable, let's see ANOTHER amphibious vehilce.
To see is to enjoy. To see beyond is to rejoice.

@Jadom:
After the fall of the Berlin wall and dissolution of the USSR Soviet tanks and other military equipment were cheap. I think those were mostly T-55 tanks but I know a mate of mine considered buying a MIG-21, not realizing how big those are Was just looking at the Wikipedia page for the T-62, but it seems Poland never fielded T-62's but licensed build the T-72. My remark was of course related to the (extended) support of Poland for Ukraine and the fact that most European former Soviet tanks are sent to Ukraine.

Interesting park, thnx for the link!

Will this do?



If yes, the next will be a flag
If not, we'll still be looking for an entire high reach excavator
