The Funniest Moments from the Military All Over the World
Thinking of military, weapons and wars, we usually imagine serious, life-threatening conditions, pain, hurt and danger. All the more precious then, are the rare moments of humour and even hilarity - during the drill, in the field, and even in combat. This is a long-overdue celebration of life's lighter side in the middle of these harsh realities.

The End of the "Tank Bling"
We wrote about Pink Tanks before, but this time - the poor blinged-out pink monster has been sawed in half and partly buried:
This is actually the monument to Soviet WW2 Army in Prague (a part of the old Soviet T-34 tank). Interesting thoughts come to mind...
Who knew? - apparently, Soviet spies came very close to taking out Hitler... if only Adolf would not turn around at this very moment:

What's this with throwing rifles in the air? -
More emotional discharge:
... and a total embarrassment:
Police Riding in Style
We saw some totally weird and tricked-out police cars in the previous parts of our series - including some pretty powerful "Ferrari" and "Lamborghini". There are many more to show, however - it seems that every big city (at least in China) has some incredible police cars to be proud of:
Size does not matter:
Some very well equipped Japanese rescue vehicle:

Come to daddy -
