Drifting Tanks Make For Awesome Viewing: Video
Drifting cars are awesome. They bring some joy to my life. But you know what’s better than drifting cars? Drifting tanks and Assault Amphibious Vehicles (AAVs)!
Check this video out: that’s the United States Marine Corps. performing joint exercises with the Norwegian Telemark Battalion in the wintry landscape of Norway. Part of this training apparently involves driving tanks and AAVs in frigid environments. And, as the video so awesomely demonstrates, the sight of these 60-plus ton machines of warfare performing drifts is pretty incredible.
I can’t even begin to imagine how difficult it is to drive normal cars in conditions like this, but a tank and an AAV? Forget about it. This is some specialized skill we’re watching here. It may look awesome from our perspective because we only get to watch it, but for those guys, this is the kind of skill that could play a huge role in winning a battle.
Much respect to these fellas.
