    It is the engine of system "Tochka-U" and as it wasn't destroyed I can make a conclusion that its head was kind a cassette.

    But the cassette head of the system "Tochka-U" separates on the hight of 2250 m. and the engine could fall to an unpredictable place.

    Definately not a nuclear or Bio/Chem warhead, we would have heard about that!




    A Georgian man on crutches passes by a Russian soldier in Gori, Georgia, Saturday, Aug. 16, 2008. Russian forces built ramparts of earth around tanks and posted sentries on a hill in central Georgia on Saturday, seemingly digging in amid Western pressure for Moscow to withdraw its forces under a cease-fire deal signed by Russia's president

    Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet (R) listens to Georgia's Security Council Secretary Alexander Lomaia at a damaged apartment building in Gori, 80 km (50 miles) from Tbilisi, August 16, 2008. Russian forces in the occupied town of Gori in Georgia said on Saturday they had not received any order to pull out, but ******* witnessed a visible drawdown in the military presence


    A missile lays on a military police car in the port of Poti on August 16, 2008. Russian troops reportedly looted and destroyed the facilities in the military part of the key Georgian port of Poti earlier today


    Partially submerged by Russian forces, Georgian Coast Guard vessels are pictured through looted offices windows in the Port of Poti on August 16, 2008. The Georgian Interior ministry on August 15, 2008 said Russian forces were "destroying" Gori, the Georgian city closest to disputed South Ossetia but only 85 kilometres (50 miles) from Tbilisi, and demolishing military facilities in the port of Poti.

    A Georgian soldier wounded in Tskhinvali lies in a hospital on August 17, 2008 in Tbilisi, Georgia. Russia signed a cease fire agreement with Georgia on August 16 but continued their grip on the city of Gori, as Russia although the Russian forces commander General Vyacheslav Borisov said withdrawal of troops was underway.

    A nurse works on a Georgian war casualty August 17, 2008 at the main hospital in Tbilisi, Georgia. Russian troops continued to occupy the central Georgian city of Gori, even as political negotiations to secure their withdrawal took place behind the scenes

    A Russian soldier takes aim on August 15, 2008 outside of Gori. Chaos reigned in Gori as Russian soldiers started moving out, leaving looters and criminals to take advantage of a power vacuum in the strategic Georgian town, residents said. Three days after a ceasefire was brokered between Moscow and Tbilisi and following protracted negotiations between Georgian and Russian officials, Russian troops appeared to have largely withdrawn from the city.

    Russian soldiers sit on a armoured troop-carrier as they roll past destroyed buildings on August 16, 2008 in Tskhinvali. Dozens of haggard Georgian captives were marched through the rebel city of South Ossetia, as separatists called on Tbilisi to recover the rotting corpses of its soldiers. The mostly elderly men -- apparently all civilians -- walked with their heads bowed and their hands behind their backs, escorted by armed guards. Locals stopped to take pictures on their mobile phones. Some pointed and laughed as the detainees marched through Tskhinvali. One woman said: "Those are the prisoners? But they're just old men!".

    Russian soliders guard Kikhva village, 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) to Tskhinvali, Georgia, Saturday, Aug. 16, 2008. Many villages populated by ethnic Georgians have been burned down during the Russian-Georgian conflict. Teams of ethnic Georgian civilians, some under armed guard, are being forced to clean the streets of South Ossetia's capital on Saturday.

    Looks like a couple of Negevs in there ...
    An Abkhazian soldier displays an assault rifle, one of the firearms looted by Russian-backed separatists from Georgian barracks in Georgia's last stronghold in Abkhazia and displayed at an undisclosed location in the breakaway province, Sunday, Aug. 17, 2008. The separatists were bolstering their control over the area after Russian-backed Abkhazian fighters forced Georgians out of their last stronghold in the province earlier this week. The renewed military action in Abkhazia came alongside fighting in another breakaway province in Georgia, South Ossetia, that has pit Russian and U.S.-backed Georgian forces against each other since Aug. 7 and prompted world diplomatic efforts to end the violence


    A Russian soldier inspects armored vehicles allegedly seized by the Russians from the Georgian military, in Tskhinvali, in the Georgian breakaway province of South Ossetia, Sunday, Aug. 17, 2008. Russian military authorities issued a flurry of conflicting reports Sunday about whether Russian troops had begun to pull out of South Ossetia, one of Georgia's two separatist provinces.

    Russian soldiers travel on top of an APC on a road to the Georgian village of Igoeti some 50 km from the capital Tbilisi on August 16, 2008. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev signed a peace deal with Georgia on Saturday but his troops again underlined their grip by pushing even deeper toward the capital Tbilisi.

    A Georgian villager is seen by a Russian armored vehicle heading from the city of Senaki towards the Abkhazian border in western Georgia, Sunday, Aug. 17, 2008.

    A Russian tank is seen driving down the road towards the Georgian military airbase of Senaki, western Georgia, Sunday, Aug. 17, 2008. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said Sunday that Russia would begin to pull back troops on Monday. But he suggested they might remain in separatist South Ossetia, the focus of days of fighting between Russia and Georgia that erupted this month.

    In WW2, Germans caught wearing allied uniforms were executed. I wonder what would happen to those Russian soldiers if they were captured by the Georgians....

    But they were trying to deceive the American forces, here the Russians are clearly just fighting them conventionally. As far as I know, the only time the Germans wore US uniforms was during the Battle of the Bulge during the small missions to confuse the American forces.
