Featuring restoration of an Soviet BMP Tank.Unveiled in the mid-1960s, the Soviet BMP was the world's very first infantry fighting vehicle, a brand new concept for the modern nuclear battlefield. The BMP was designed to protect soldiers from radioactive fallout and allow them to fight from within the vehicle. But the BMP never fought a nuclear war. Instead it fought conventional wars in the Middle East where it was outclassed by its vastly superior American counterpart, the M2 Bradley.
Greg Taylor is one of the world's most experienced tank restorations experts. He's spent years trying to get a BMP brought into his backyard in the Nevada desert. But he's got an impossible mission on his hands, rebuild a Cold War vehicle without enough money or time and with only part time help from his friends on weekends. The brutal mission pushes Greg to his breaking point.
