    Seriously our Russian members must advocate this, Russia is roomy enough to do it and they don't have ecologist problems there!

    Sell it as a celebration of the end of the cold war or whatever, the proof that the USSR could have won I don't know, but seeing 3 millions tons of ammo exploding would be like the most epic thing ever done by mankind for fun.

    Ok maybe not 3 millions but 300 000 would be cool enough.
    A major FAIL in bold right there.

    Are these munitions not safe enough to use for training? (Depending on age and condition of course.)

    Yeah they have some, but somehow I don't imagine them opposing something the army will do in a deserted area... It's not Germany (or France) where tank exercises could be banned if their where a risk of scaring off some lizards and hurt plants.

    There's no need for REFORGER-style exercises in my country, as we are not dependent on some farmers' fields to drive our tanks around. Got some nice (and sufficiant) training grounds, so I have heard.

    yup an excuse to blow things up for the hell of it

    but seriously,3 million tonne? it'll take your(and mine) generation to empty the damn pile down till the last round

    i think it's better to recycle it(there's iron,copper,brass,aluminum,lead,etc)...it's more cost effective to recycle stuff than to mine it

    And they do have a suitable place for it: "Tunguska 2.0 Hosted By FPS Russia!"
