last weekened (20.6.-22.6.2014), in the village of Ivanovskoe (Moscow region), a military fest/re-enactment event called “Motory Voyny” (“Engines of War”) took place, with Wargaming as one of the official partners. More thank 120 tanks, cars and motorbikes participated in this event, including some very rare operating pieces. The re-enactments included battles such as “Khalkin Gol”, “Normandy landings” and “Barbarossa”, with the re-enactors dressed in historically correct and proper uniforms and functioning vehicles taking part as well.
Here for example, a T-34/76 is “attacking german positions”, gets “knocked out” (video, posted by Yuri Pasholok on his blog – he personally participated as well)
