5 Heavily Armored Displays of Drifting

Think hundreds of thousands of pounds of mobile armor is impossible to drift? Think again.
We all know that tanks are great for blowing things up/crushing things, but did you know that they were also good for drifting? This little-known tank fact had been a well-guarded secret until the invention of the Internet. Now there are tons of videos of tanks drifting floating around online. Some are good, and some aren't. These clips represent the cream of the tank drifting crop. Those who want to see which military has the best tank drifters need to check all of these videos out. The answer is guaranteed to surprise you.
China's army may be steadily growing in both manpower and weapons, but can its soldiers slide tanks like American soldiers? The answer to that question, unless you're a commie (kidding), is no.
The majority of this clip is spent showing off Japan's Type 10 MBT-X Prototype (TK-X) tank, but there is a blink and you might miss it segment reserved for drifting. Tokyo drifting has officially been taken to the next level.
Sweden may not have the world's strongest military, but they do have the world's best tank drifters. It takes a special amount of skill to gracefully drift over 100,000 pounds of armor.
You've got to wonder if Erwin Rommel ever taught his tankers to drift like this. Talk about an evasive maneuver. Fun fact: the tank used in this video is the same model as the tank in the previous video.
If this is the best display of tank drifting that China can come up with, then America has nothing to fear come WWIII. All fear mongering aside, this video is a pretty awesome display of skill on par with the skills of America's drift tankers. Give peace a chance!
