Experience a tank driving and shooting tour (T-55, the legendary T-34-85 or an infantry fighting vehicle). You will be able to shoot a tank gun or any of more than 10 available firearms including a Kalashnikov AK-47!
After the tank driving, you will visit the Museum of armored vehicles, go through a master class of assembling and disassembling an AK-47 and taste the real field kitchen that always includes a shot of vodka.

Lovers of thrills can order Car-Crash by a tank. The only thing you need is to choose a car and prepare your camera. You will enjoy the battle “a 36-ton vehicle VS a car”. You can see everything from a safe, but close distance. Though the outcome of the battle is known in advance, you will see how it is happening.
How great is the resistance of the car body? Will the collision cause difficulties for the tank and the driver?
How many attempts does the tank need to completely destroy the car? We promise that the battle will strike your mind!

    We will have a group to Russia around April and May.
    There are few question after looking your website details.
    How many people you can do in the individual group?
    How many tanks you will offer for the individual group?

      The tour is designed for the group of up to 20 persons.
      There are two types of the tanks in the military base: T-55 and T-34-85. Both are Soviet-made battle tanks.
      Armored personnel carrier (BTR-60) and Infantry fighting vehicle (BMP-1) are also available.

      The detailed information and prices have been sent to your email.
      We hope we can begin a positive cooperation.

    How long it takes for diving the tank for a group?
    How many people can stay in one tank?
    Do you have Chinese interpreter for group?How much of it?
    How much of the minivan and the bus?And how many people they can take maximum for each type?
    Yes, we plan to shoot a tank gun.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

      You can book either group tour or individual.

      However, the group tour is held twice a months on Sundays. The exact dates of the tours in April-May will be known later, say 3-4 weeks before the tour. The group tour is held jointly with other tourists, mainly russians. Your group will be able to ride a tank for an hour. You can’t choose the tank if you book a group tour. The price for the group tour is 8000 rub per person.

      Booking the individual tour, your get the opportunity to choose a tank (either T-34, either T-55, or both). And your group will be able to ride the vehicle as long as the military base operates (for about 7 hours). The price for the individual tour is 110000 Rub for the whole group. The additional tank costs 100000. This means that for the two tanks you should pay 210000 Rub for the group.

      – “How long it takes for diving the tank for a group?”. As I mentioned above, the tank ride in frame of the group tour lasts 1 hour. And the ride of the individual tour lasts as long as the tourists want, they are limited only by the working hours of the military base.

      – “How many people can stay in one tank?”. It depends on the tank type: T-34 accomodates 4 persons except a driver and T-55 accomodates 3 persons except a driver.

      – “Do you have Chinese interpreter for group?How much of it?”
      We have several interpreters. The price depends on the interpreter avalable on the tour date. The price varies from 10000 to 15000 rub for the whole day (8 hours).

      – “How much of the minivan and the bus? And how many people they can take maximum for each type?”
      The minivan costs about 13000 Rub (8 hours) and can accommodate up to 20 persons. (Меrcedes Sprinter VIP)
      The 30-seater bus costs about 15000-16000 Rub (8 hours).

    Hello, we are a group of six people who are interested in driving a tank. We are interested in the t-34 for a individual tour. We are planning a weekend in Russia in the beginning of September. When do we have to book to get the t-34 for a day? Does it have to be on a Sunday or can we have it Saturday if we request that? Appreciate your reply.

    1. admin Post author

      Dear Ida,

      The idea of the individual tour is that you can choose any day and time, as well as a tank type (either T-34 or T-55) 🙂

      Please indicate the preferred date and time in order to book the tour
