Don't drink and drive tanks

MOSCOW (Reuters) - A Russian tank crashed through a villager's house after the crew stopped to buy more vodka at a nearby shop.

Footage from a mobile phone camera showed the tank hitting a corner of the house and a laughing, and apparently drunk, driver awkwardly trying to clamber aboard with two bottles of vodka.

"Get him out of the tank," screamed a woman in the village in the Urals.

The army promised Friday to pay compensation and said the tank must have been broken and fallen behind a column heading to a test site for exercises. Earlier it said the vehicle slid on melting ice.

"Of course, there were violations but the crew acted in good faith to catch up with its unit," said Colonel Konstantin Lazutkin, spokesman for Russia's Volga-Urals Military District.

"Thank God, they didn't shoot," the house owner said on the video.

- I just loved exercises in the RMA (Regtl Mnvr Area = not in a trg area)!!!

- Having said that, the most dangerous time to drive a tank drunk was onto or off of the tank train.  Hence the 'tendency' towards dry tank trains in the late 80's early 90's.  At other times, Leopards and Lynx without 'coffee creamer' (Baileys) and/or a case of 'green grenades' (Heineken) would be an exception.
