T-80 tanks were put through their paces at Pesochnensky in St. Petersburg on Saturday, performing the waltz and the famous ‘flying tank’ jump ahead of the city’s first ever ‘Race of Heroes' military sports contest. Navigating ramps, the T-80 tanks paraded their power by shooting while in the air and moving with synchronized precision during their presentation of the tank waltz. Visitors also had a chance to see the presentation of military hardware from the Western Military Region including T-72s, APC-1s and APC-2s. The Russian Ministry of Defense and the St. Petersburg government are supporting and endorsing the first ever ‘Race of Heroes’.
