Czechs in the Desert

As usual – a photo for you.

egyptian T-34-85 1967

There are Czechoslovak-made T-34/85 in Egyptian service, knocked out by the Israelis in 1967. If you see a middle-eastern T-34, T-54 or T-55, chances are it was made in Czechoslovakia (for the T-34, the chance is nearly 100 percent). Interested in more info? Once, very long time ago, I wrote about the T-34s from Czechoslovakia. And now one of them is in World of Tanks :)

Ah, simpler times those were.
