If I ever become a multi-millionaire, I'll be all over that.

And dont forget that Russia is also selling off old WW2 equipment, I've heard that tanks go for 20 grand. (I guess ill make my own thread when I get the link)

360,000 is an insane amount of money, to bad you cant buy them seperate. Though you can get all of one. Crate full of Lugers anyone?

You could buy a whole lot more than 710 Mosins, 98ks, Lugers, SVT 40s, G43s etc. in Ukraine for $360,000. All of them are importable right now. It's just not cost effective for the importers. The Ukrainians want too much for everything except Mosins and 98ks. However, if your a rich guy with $360,000 to throw around you could import yourself an armoury of weapons.

I'm trying to convince a few people that buying a tank is an investment!

In 50 years if it still runs it will be priceless! Look at spitfires now! they go for millions!

I know, 20,000 is so cheap, what other vehicle can you buy for 20,000 grand that isnt a peice. And even if you find a good one the T-34 > everything.

I just wonder what the shipping and import fees would be. I could just imagine trying to get a tank cleared through customs.

Didnt really mean everthing in WW2, or literally. Just that it would be amazingly badass to have one.

And I wouldn't be suprised if it cost more to get it shipped and stuff, than the tank itself.

Reclining chairs and everything.
