"Firepower, "iron fist," tracks, "bears"... They have many names, but in one they are united - when the country needs protection from the enemy, they stand up for defense with all the force, and attack the invaders on full power, crushing the enemy's hardware and personnel. They are fascinating, they ignite fear, they are the iron wall behind which we can hide and save ourselves.

"Today they celebrate their holiday! Dear tankmen, let your fights be successful, the fuel never end, and the ammunition be unlimited! Happy holiday, dear people," a note to the video reads.
