Russian Attack Fails, Confusion Reigns

If milling about aimlessly was the correct reaction to contact with the enemy, then this video would be sublime. This Russian attack, somewhere near Mar'inka, begins in the usual way, with a handful of armored vehicles sporting Mad Max-looking cope cages barreling along a dirt track. As a few artillery shells explode nearby, the column comes to a halt, and although we do not see it in the footage, it is due to the lead tank being disabled by a mine. At this point, hijinks ensue, with an MTLB backing into another vehicle as they both attempt to turn around. After a cut scene we see that one MTLB is disabled and burning, and the third which was previously in the rear, has ditched its infantry and is driving in another direction. The second tank seems confused; the first tank is immobile and spins its turret helplessly; the first MTLB follows the crowd of infantry exiting stage right. Another time lapse and we see infantry digging in behind one of the disabled tanks, and two of the MTLBs are done for, including one sporting logs as armor.
