    The Internet’s love for crazy dash cam videos from Russia might somewhat exaggerate the situation on the roads, but sometimes the weather really is very harsh. Thus, on occasion, a tank can seem like the best option to travel across the country – and to help those in trouble drive back home.

    A T-80 tank has helped an unfortunate bus drove off the road in the Russia’s Amur Region, head of the Eastern Military District’s press service Col. Alexander Gordeev said on Sunday.

    According to the official statement, the bus was trapped in a ditch, blocking the way to a nearby settlement, but even a powerful truck could not rescue it due to the extremely slippery road. As a result, a nearby military academy sent a T-80 and a special tow truck and they managed to resolve the issue swiftly.
