Episode Summary

A snow tank made to cross Siberia’s frozen tundra on skis, powered by a jet engine? It looks like something out of “The Empire Strikes Back,” but this Soviet war vehicle was developed during World War II, designed to traverse a land impossible to access by plane, train, or car. Join the Re-Inventors as they reconstruct the NKL 26 Aerosan and see how it handles the snowy plains of Canada. They also race it against a dog sled team, a pack that seems eager to leave this 70-year-old invention in a cloud of snow-dust.moreless
