Simple said, post once a day a photo off a cold war era vehicle you would like to share!

However! It must be the COLD war era! Thus anything BEFORE 1990!
A picture may contain propaganda photo's or also multiple vehicles, but you must point out wich vehicle nominate as your vehicle of the day

Mine is nothing else but the T64 MBT of Soviet russia. A T64-A to be exact. First developed as a far more advanced counterpart to the T62, the tank had massive innovations wich drasticly changed MBT designs. The T64 was later supplanted by the cheaper T72, but the T64 remained in production alongside it, as a More advanced tank for more tactical battles

The tank remained superior to most Westren MBT's untill the arrival of the M1 Abrams and Challenger 1 MBT's.

The T64 had much more advantages then most soviet MBT's, especialy the T72=
Spoiler                     

The only shared disadvantage was the low gun depresssion

I like TDs, so here's Kanonenjagdpanzer 4-5, in service in West Germany between 1965 - 1990. Pretty obvious which WW2 TD (sadly underpowered in WoT) influenced it's design.  :P

not to mention the APSFDS rounds these things could fire wich could easily penetrate the side armour of MBT's of those days

2K11 Krug or SA-4 ganef was a medium to long range Surface to air missile.The missiles are launched with the aid of four solid fuel rocket motors inside boosters attached to the outside of the massive missile. Once they have burned and the missile is aloft, it fires a liquid-fuelled ramjet sustainer engine. It reaches speeds of up to Mach 4 and has an effective range of 50–55 km (31–34 miles) depending upon the version. It carries a 135 kg (300 lb) warhead. Possible engagement altitudes range from 100 m-27 km

NATO was very worried by these SAM's, because despite there huge size, they where still very accurate and contained a huge High explosive charge
