Tank Museum Near Moscow

#1
Has anyone been HERE?

It looks like an incredible collection, and a pretty crazy one! Apparently you need security clearance to go there, which seems a little odd... My mate who is in Russia at the moment couldn't go because of those "security issues" and you need special permission which takes a few weeks to get.

Can anyone give me a heads up on the place?

More likely couldn't get in as he was drunk, spoke bad Russian in a Macam accent and had watermelon on his head...

Impressive collection - up to the Bovvy museum by all appearances.

Some of the nomenclature has been lost in translation. Calling the Walker Bulldog a "Worker" Bulldog must be a freudian slip from the Soviet era :)

Surely that would have helped him get in....

It does look like an amazing collection though doesn't it...if I'm eveer over there I'm going to get my security clearence. (I like how they ask for booze as a tip in the FAQs section...)

Really Kubinka is the collection of the NIIBT rather than a museum proper with some real 'one of a kind' stuff found nowehere else.

Though the last few years they've been getting their heads around the idea they should be a museum - hence the change in the paintjobs from everything being in Soviet green.

The museum at Poklonnaya Gora is pretty good as well.
