Finland to auction off tanks

Finland’s military is to dispense with a large stockpile of obsolete weapons, vehicles, including armour, and equipment at auction.
The decision means civilians will for the first time have an opportunity to buy decommissioned Finnish Defence Forces tanks.

The auction list includes unarmoured vehicles, weapons, explosives, communications equipment and logistics kit as well as a number of armoured vehicles bought from Germany in the 1990s and several Comet tanks.

All the weapons in the armoured vehicles will be deactivated.
