Looking at the video I just got to know why there is a log on the side of the vehicle? I mean do they think they might get a chance to take part in the highland games?

The logs are called in modern parlence "unditching rails" and are present on most soviet tanks and APCs today. They are not used to create bridges but if the tank is mired in mud and the tracks are slipping they are chained across the tracks and form a large grouser(like a large Paddle) to provide traction to move the vehicle. when it reach the rear they are unchained and moved to the front untill the vehicles tracks are on dry enough ground to gain their own traction. As I said the soviets still used them. Look across the rear of the BMP 1 APC and T 72 tanks.

Thank you.

I hadn't got a clue what it was for. I was even thinking they might be using it for fire wood if they needed it on the front :lol:
