I am sure the Russian army has not degenerated to the point that it cannot liberate a truck full of alcohol.

How much beer is 10 tons of beer? I mean... is it *really* worth a week of salvage efforts in freezing temperatures. Now if it were some good Russian vodka...

Rosar Ice: Slowly fermented in ancient Siberian tanks then chilled to perfection in the Irtysh River.

...and when did McGyver ever rescue something that weighed 10 tons with a paperclip, rubberband, and a mirror?

Hey, he could have done it if they would have called him, using a plastic bag, a fishing sinker, a 6ft rope, and a bottle of butane;)

....and when did the A-Team ever shoot somebody and kill them?

Nothing like using Army resources to save beer. The big kicker is that they left the truck behind. Priorities, I tell ya!

The beer was probably worth more than the truck.

So 10 tons (assuming metric) = 10 000 kilos = 10 000 litres of beer.
Probably a bit more because alchohol is slightly less dense than water.
