Drifting may have been made famous in one of the “Fast and the Furious” movies, but there’s nothing as cool as seeing a tank drift.
And yes, you read that right.
The footage came from Marines training in Norway as part of Cold Response 2016. It was a joint training exercise with 13 countries, including 3,000 American troops. And Marines were taught by the Norwegian troops how to drive an M1A1 Abrams tank on ice, along with amphibious assault vehicles.
That meant learning how to “drift”, which will help them drive in cold weather environments in the future. But it looks like a lot of fun, too!
