Hopefully it will let me post the link this time...for those who are interested, last year at their Tank Biathlon the Russian army brought out some bona fide T-34s and ran them through the course. This includes full speed racing, target shooting, and running obstacles.
Here it is:
Two of my favourite parts in the video are tracer shells bouncing off the ground during target shooting a la Fury, and this poor Russian tank driver looking progressively more alarmed every time the camera cuts to him.

Entertaining video. Why should they have all the fun. A biathlon this spring at the field, would be a great way to demonstrate the skills and abilities of our own members. Although, last years ball slalom was a lot of fun too.
