'15 R, '05 Taco,
Pretty hilarious quote From the article: “A tidy, fully functional and loaded TOS Solntsepyok. Except that the tanks are dry, but this really isn’t a problem for our Cossacks. Let’s fill it with the tears of katsaps and go!”, it was commented on the news about the latest capture.

My grandpa was rumored to have been a “flame thrower” at Iwo Jima, but that might have just been family propaganda. I never asked him before he passed but flame is a hell of a weapon. I only know the story of him getting wounded a few times and the doc that went to get help died, but my grandpa lived (barely made it).
