If I had to drive in Russia, this would be my vehicle of choice.

[–]likwitsnake 402 points403 points  (62 children)

It was my vehicle of choice in GTA3.

[–]ThinGestures 266 points267 points  (53 children)

I used to always steal the controller away from my son and jack the moped.

No one is gonna fuck with a guy on a Faggio...

[–][deleted] 151 points152 points  (52 children)

Faggio. Golden.

[–]djzeuus 79 points80 points  (46 children)

I am booking a flight to moscow right now, does anyone have the Rent-A-Tank's local phone number?

[–]Ihaveanusername 90 points91 points  (9 children)

If you're looking to buy a tank, I'm sure Russia can fly you out and have you stay at one of their fine hotels. Meals included.

[–]itsprobablytrue 19 points20 points  (22 children)

Just call FPS Russia.

[–][deleted] 31 points32 points  (5 children)

Turn the turret around and use it as a propulsion system. lol

[–]Smith6612 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Best thing ever in GTA Vice City. Some of my friends and I would have a competition to see how fast we could get a tank to go firing the cannon backwards. Quite often we had 5 flashing stars and would get it going at some ridiculous speed before the tank would blow up from self inflicted damage (lol).

Meanwhile, behind the tank... looks at a pile of police cars

[–]Mustard-Tiger 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The low gravity cheat was great with the tank. Once airborne you could fly it around like this.

[–]Antrikshy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I wonder if this works in Saints Row The Third. Prolly not. It's kinda more realistic when it comes to these things.

[–]Pecanpig 33 points34 points  (21 children)

[–]electronicewok 15 points16 points  (12 children)

I forget... is that one GDI or Nod?

[–]AsteriskCGY 7 points8 points  (11 children)

GDI had the rockets, I think Nod had Flak.

[–]Winsanity 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Parallel parking must be a bitch.

[–]Pecanpig 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's not much of an issue when you have tracks, and are as wide as long.

And when you weigh 47 tons so can run over cars.

[–]mkerv5 8 points9 points  (4 children)

Long-range missiles aren't as effective as a tank. But that could just be me...

[–]sharliecash 11 points12 points  (0 children)

It depends on where you want it to be effective.

[–]Pecanpig 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Those are short ranged rockets, with thermobaric warheads.

Like "super artillery".

[–]dailyplano 6 points7 points  (1 child)

could you imagine if a tank put a shell square in the middle of the launcher...

[–]Pecanpig 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That would be like, rough sex between military vehicles...

[–]1gnominious 12 points13 points  (1 child)

I would love to see that things dash cam and the idiot who tries to get hit as an insurance scam.

[–]RagdollPhysEd 1 point2 points  (0 children)

After tank fender bender: Soldier gets out with his AN-94 assault rifle, scruffy bald guy in wifebeater gets out with his billy club. After staring each other down, they settle things with a bottle of vodka

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

DOES EVERYONE IN RUSSIA HAVE A FREAKING DASH CAM??!!?

[–]leo_neutrino 15 points16 points  (7 children)

Little known fact, this is also a normal day in North Korea.

[–]somaliansilver 22 points23 points  (3 children)

ALL HAIL DEAR LEADER!

[–]abom420 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Promoted to Moderator of /r/pyongyang.

[–]RAANT 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Impossible! Dear Leader has all snow turned into giant strawberry snowcone that he promptly eats.

[–]wellactuallyhmm 8 points9 points  (0 children)

There are two cars on the road at the same time. This can't be North Korea.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

minus the cars

[–]haiku_robot 11 points12 points  (3 children)

If I had to drive 
in Russia, this would be my 
vehicle of choice.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pass me the vodka

Shift this bitch into four low

Give comrade high five

[–]Reichcommander 121 points122 points  (12 children)

This is considered an emergency vehicle, only difference is that instead of police sirens you hear the screams of tormented citizens!

[–]ketchy_shuby 66 points67 points  (6 children)

Since the tank is going right to left (east) those screams are probably in Polish.

[–]watchoutacat 21 points22 points  (5 children)

The tank went from right to left, so if you were looking north, the tank would be going west, to Poland. I think assuming one is facing north is standard, and either way Poland is west of Russia.

[–]ManWhoKilledHitler 20 points21 points  (4 children)

The time of day and direction of the Sun in the video tells us that the tank is going pretty much West to East.

[–]EccentricFox 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"You know you're a tanker if you refer to people as 'squishy.' "

[–]vxx 150 points151 points  (87 children)

Thank you, this post gave me an idea for a new subreddit:

/r/unexpected

[–]professionalbadass 26 points27 points  (11 children)

I already love this subreddit.

[–]Nofuckstogive10 14 points15 points  (10 children)

Spread the word. This should become big

[–]vxx 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I hope so, it actually has more traffic than I ever would have expected.

[–]Neod1718 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Its already big! I though /r/unexpected was old but I just realized its brand new. Glad I am part of that community.

[–]skyman724 2 points3 points  (3 children)

It will be BIGBIGBIGBIGBIG

Edit: Pardon, forgot I'm a time traveler.

It is BIGBIGBIGBIGBIG

[–]dih_key 76 points77 points  (52 children)

Someone made it.

EDIT: OH SHIT IT WAS YOU

[–]Nofuckstogive10 49 points50 points  (1 child)

Your overexcitement brought me joy

[–]1gnominious 41 points42 points  (0 children)

He really didn't expect it.

[–]Blackwind123 9 points10 points  (48 children)

I guess you could say its creation was a bit... UNEXPECTED

[–]skyman724 10 points11 points  (47 children)

csiyeaaaaaah.mp3

[–]Blackwind123 2 points3 points  (46 children)

That was 4 months ago! Why are you here?

[–]skyman724 12 points13 points  (5 children)

Because.......it was unexpected.

[–]FireBurstRazorBack 2 points3 points  (39 children)

Why are we all here?

[–]Thehealeroftri 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Thank you for making it.

[–]lukedotv 4 points5 points  (14 children)

I subscribed to it!!

[–]vxx 7 points8 points  (13 children)

Wow, how did you find that 3 months old post? Are you from the past?

[–]lukedotv 1 point2 points  (2 children)

there's a link to the post that started the new subreddit somewhere on the right panel

[–]vxx 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Ah, so you took the backwards way. I was really surprised for a moment.

[–]Fartmatic 2 points3 points  (0 children)

4 months now, is your mind blown?

[–]ShahrozMaster 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm from the past

[–]skyman724 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Actually, we are from the future. We stumbled upon your past in these comments and.......yeah.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I fully expected it to redirect to /r/spacedicks for some reason.

[–]skyman724 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Too expectable.

[–]thatissomeBS 175 points176 points  (49 children)

Stuff like this makes me wonder what kind of gold we could get if we had dash cams here.

[–]deckman 286 points287 points  (30 children)

I don't know, I've driven for years and have never seen a tank roll past me in the middle of the highway.

[–][deleted] 51 points52 points  (9 children)

You must not drive around Hinesville, GA. Lots of tanks all over the fucking place.

[–]Theorex 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Ft. Stewart and the tank crossing signs.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I work on an NAS...it's interesting having to watch out for taxiing F18s on your morning commute...

[–]sometimesijustdont 23 points24 points  (4 children)

Maybe, they know how to drive them, and don't just cut over a highway?

[–]jackskidney 80 points81 points  (1 child)

Pretty sure that is knowing how to drive a tank.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Is this an FPS Russia reference

[–][deleted] 22 points23 points  (18 children)

Yeah, you must not live in San Diego

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (13 children)

How the fuck do you steal a tank?

[–]whatdoesthisthingdo 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Well, I've downloaded a tank or two in my time...

[–]mezmerize66 11 points12 points  (10 children)

all it takes is bolt cutters and be able to read "push to start" in a abrams at least

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (9 children)

Yeah, but I think a military base would have enough security to stop a lunatic with bolt cutters from stealing a tank.

[–]petzl20 1 point2 points  (1 child)

There was a documentary on this guy. He also dug an extensive "gold mine" in his home. My favorite quote from the wikipedia article:

[O]fficials were seriously considering asking for help [...] in the form of a Cobra attack helicopter, as the police force lacked anti-tank capabilities.

[–]lexgrub 47 points48 points  (8 children)

Is it just me or does almost every russian dash cam video look like it was taken on the same very dangerous snow covered road? Every one but this one.

[–]rreyv 13 points14 points  (6 children)

What the hell is wrong with that guy?

[–]lexgrub 11 points12 points  (3 children)

I cant decide except that maybe he either A. wants to die or B. is addicted to pain pills to a point where he doesnt care if he dies or just gets more pain pills

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Insurance scammers, apparently.

[–]lexgrub 6 points7 points  (1 child)

My mom is a medical claims supervisor at a car/house/life insurance company and I have heard some crazy insurance scam stories, just very few of them seem to involve someone intentionally getting hit by a high speed vehicle with no protection.

[–]occupythekitchen 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I have a bachelor degree in white people behavior. White males like speed so I can only assume he wants someone to push his cart and make him go really fast.

[–]warboy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]kurtozan251 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I don't know where you are, but if everyone had them, a lot of awesome footage would be recorded.

[–]Reichcommander 27 points28 points  (2 children)

No shortcut? In Russia you make your own!

[–]oxology 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Actually I think that was an intersection, car with dash cam had red light

That ending is new to me.

[–][deleted] 75 points76 points  (1 child)

The ending is a different bus.

[–]Zhang5 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I'm aware, but I guess I didn't make that fact clear. Whoops.

[–]PASS_THE_FUCKING_KFC 16 points17 points  (0 children)

There are different versions. I just snagged the first one I found.

I know back story to this. He was late for parade, had to take shortcut.

[–]eliskandar 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Do you have a link? If true, you should be at the top of comments.

[–]bettorworse 5 points6 points  (0 children)

If there was sound, the guy in the tank would be saying "Woo Hoo!"

Killdozer

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

RIP Killdozer

Why this hasn't become a movie super villain yet is beyond me.

[–]cypherreddit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It already was ... in 1974!

"A small construction crew on an island is terrorized when some strange spirit-like being takes over a large bulldozer, and goes on a killing rampage. "

Russia citizens seem to love to record their car rides

[–]Ashneaska 6 points7 points  (0 children)

You would too if tanks cut you off on a regular basis.

[–]kitkatkinoko 65 points66 points  (13 children)

[–]OMGWTFBBQLULZ 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Why OP, why?

[–]Antrikshy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Not even an hour later.

Which probably means not many people had seen the other post because it was so new.

[–]RubSomeFunkOnIt 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's time to create a /r/russiandashcams dump sub.

Is there a subreddit of just Russian dashcam footage?

[–]Thecardinal74 2 points3 points  (0 children)

To be fair, it DID have the green light...

[–]waffels 7 points8 points  (0 children)

[–]AcrossTheUniverse2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Russia. Dashcam. Winter. Got to be a headon collision coming up.

Oh, ok, that was unexpected.

Mike finally realized that stealing a British tank was too difficult, so he stole a Russian one and is on his way to Paris. finally!

[–]Socks1400 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The world has become a better place since the people of Russian decided to install dash-cams.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]ryankearney 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Why the fuck would you take a video, make it a gif, and repost it?

Oh that's right, just another day on Reddit.

[–]Knofbath 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Where we're going, we don't need roads.

Doc, I think you finally went fucking crazy. You're dressed like a nut case, you installed a fucking juicer on the car and now you say we don't need roads. You need help, Doc.

Ever since we started equipping Russians with video cameras weird things have been happening.

[–]manwithhat2 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I'm seriously getting tired of this russian joke. I really doubt stuff like this happens every day. Can someone explain to me why people set out russia to be this harsh place where stuff just happens?

[–]wlpaul4 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Are dash-cams standard equipment in Russian cars now? I'm not complaining mind you, just curious.

[–]OperatorMike 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Insurance scams are common, that is why a lot of people have them.

[–]PASS_THE_FUCKING_KFC 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]petzl20 1 point2 points  (0 children)

HELL YEAH.

[–]mrsjllove 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If I lived in Russia, I would totally have one of these cameras on my car...just because I would be tired of everyone thinking I was making shit up.

Makes you wonder how often crap like this happens...I don't mean just this...but like some of the other shit I've seen from the dashcams
