The Soviet Tankmen's Song is a popular Russian song, the final variant of which was popularized by the Soviet 1968 film Na Voine kak na Voine, about the crew of an SU-85 self-propelled gun. The song has no official title and is referred to by its first line: Po Polyu Tanki Grokhotali ("Across the Field Tanks Thundered"). The song melody originated from the old Russian miners song "Sirens sounded alarm" ("Гудки тревожно прогудели"), popularized in the 1940 film "Big life". The lyrics of the song were replaced during World War II.
