Warsaw military parade tanks by SoundOfColor Warsaw military parade tanks by SoundOfColor
I was on the miliary parade in Warsaw. It was first parade that was performed since 30 years ago. I loved it.

Those tanks are failed design, are they polish?

Btw, on what ocasion do polish have military parades? Liberation Warsaw from Germany, or something?

I know this post is old, but I will reply:
This is not a failed design. Quite contrary, this is Leopard 2A4, which is in top 5 of best tanks in the world, along with such designs as M1 Abrams, Challenger 2 or Merkava's newest versions. It's 120 mm Rheinmetall gun shreds any Russian tank into pieces (perhaps T-90 and M-84AS could just stand a chance, but it's hard to say, so I refrain from commenting), as tested on tanks left in former East Germany that were often in top condition.
Poland currently has 120+ of them, that were sold to us after Germany signed the arms limitation treaty, so they were as good as brand new ones. It will also get 120+ more in the nearest future, and all of Polish Leopard 2A4 are to be upgraded to the Leopard 2PL standard, which is similar to the newest Leopard 2A7 version.

thats interesting-thought parades like that had stopped completely since the end of the cold war
must have been good to see something that reminds of another era. although i suspect many of the citizens would rather not be reminded of the days of Jaruzelski...

nice that you shared these pics!
