Russian-style winter Olympics with tanks (VIDEO)

What could make the Olympic biathlon event even more exciting? Why, add tanks, of course!

Russia recently hosted 12 countries in an event known as the “Tank Olympics,” in which the military vehicles participate in racing to the finish line, all the while shooting the targets, much like a standard biathlon competition, just a little bigger and better, with additional obstacles like rivers and steep hills. Participants also have to maneuver the course while avoiding the wrath of Russian aircraft and infantry combat vehicles.
