Russia’s T-72B3 Turret Toss World Record: 100m Up In the Sky (Video)

As can be seen from the video there are no equals for russia’s army tanks in the “turret toss competition”

Defenders of Ukraine have apparently updated their “record” for tearing off the turret of the russia’s tank. It was confirmed by Chinese Phoenix Television video shot.

As a result of russia’s T-72B3 penetration, its ammunition detonated and the turret rose up in the sky by about 100m, if calculate its dimensions.

The place and date of successful “record attempt” is May 6. Who exactly helped to “update” the record remains unknown. But the fact that it was an absolute surprise for the occupiers is clearly visible in the video. Most likely, they just did not expect a strike.

The previous leader was the author of the detonation on March 23.

Defense Express notes that a lot of factors influence the turret separation, including full-packed ammo, the type of shells and even their placement. The course of detonation takes its toll as well, when shells don’t explode simultaneously and even the turret hatches position.


  1. “it was a T-72B3 & was taken out 6km from the “humanitarian corridor” in the city. Quite curious that area was still harassed by UA forces.”

    Maybe the orcs don’t control as much of Mariupol as they claim, or Ukraine are going to attack Mariupol and free the Azov trapped there? Whichever, it was still one hell of a sight.

  2. Amazing flight of a tank turret. Takes a hell of a lot of energy to toss 15 to 20 tons that far into the air.
    Someone on Twitter geolocated this incident at Novoazovs’k, Ukraine. This is between Mariupol and the mafia border. But, I doubt that it’s true. This area was under mafia control since 2014. But, it is well outside the Azovstal steel mill and so still a mystery of how this tank got destroyed so far away from the next Ukrainian troops.
