    General cars and vehicles thread.

    There was a girl near where I used to live who had one. Her plates read "SPOILD."

    Giant Squids and other Cephalopod Business

    "Scientists Gave MDMA to Octopuses—and What Happened Was Profound" Giving octopuses ecstasy produces similar results as it does in us humans, even though we have very different nervous systems. Link to the study
  3. I first thought the image was taken somewhere in the Mediterranean theatre, but then realized it could also (more likely) be California. I assume the M4A2 could be found in use for training in the states, yes?
  4. Something similar that was posted here before, but too early to include T-80U and T-72B (dated 1977).

    T-80 Megathread: Astronomical speed and price!

    I don't believe T-80UDs are in service because all the stuff for diesel engines is in Ukraine, but the T-80U (and subvariants) and apparently the T-80BV are still around, with some BVs being upgraded to BVMs with new FCS, ERA, and other miscellaneous things. Loooser would know more.
  8. And they still felt compelled to slap it with Dual AGLs and MANPADS.
  9. We had wondered this before and came to the conclusion that it was likely a derelict from one of the past conflicts on the Israeli-Syrian border in Deraa (acquired after the fighting there.) The Russians just took it and a whole bunch of other vehicles back for their display.
