All in working condition, no less!

 

That should spice up the next May Day parade!

 

Photo is from the BBC article.

 

CNN also had the story as well.

Russian language video is available on this article from the New York Times.

 

A couple of internet resources speculate the Laotians received T-72's (not the latest technology by any means) in exchange for these icons.

Amazing how the Laotians were able to keep them running for so long.
