Stompie The Tank

For the 1995 movie Richard III, director Richard Loncraine towed an old Soviet T-34 tank to the center of London and had it drive through a wall for the final battle scene filmed at Battersea Power Station. The tank had originally seen action during the Prague Spring uprising in 1968, and after the dissolution of Czechoslovakia, it was decommissioned and sold for scrap. Later, it was picked up by Richard Loncraine.
