Sukhoi fighters and F16 Fighting Falcons of the Indonesian Airforce participate in the anniversary of the Indonesian Airforce in Jakarta on April 9, 2010. The defense forces are celebrating the 64th anniversary of the airforce in Indonesia.
And she blew up afterwards, probably she triggered her suicide vest and maybe it is programmed to explode after a few seconds, so she can't be stopped when she yells "Allahu Akbhar" anymore as it is already triggered...very "clever".
"Paper" newspaper has to it no relation. It was on the tape "novoteka" (http://www.novoteka.ru/r/Politics/ArmedForces/Army) referring to the website "Rossiyskaya Gazeta" (http://www.rg.ru/2010/04/13/severodvinsk-anons.html).
It seems to me - military men in it any more do not trust...
There are more new anecdote to the topic: "Russia will purchase Mistral and licence for construction of several more. But no one knows what to do with the license - there is NO PLACE to BUILD!!!"
P.S. Statements by PR departments of companies and a real state of affairs are "two big differences"...

I use Google advanced search feature. For example, go to Google.de, there write "site:militaryphotos.net Su-34", you will get much better results than by using forum's search engine. Why is it like that now, I have no idea, I miss the old forum's look also.Also, the search still doesn't work. If you search for "Su-34" within the thread you get nothing.

MOSCOW, April 14 (RIA Novosti)
Russia's new short-range gun and missile air defense systems will take part in a Victory Day parade on Red Square in Moscow on May 9, a Defense Ministry spokesman said on Wednesday.
This year's parade in Moscow to mark the 65th anniversary of Soviet victory in WWII will involve more than 10,000 personnel, 160 military vehicles and 127 aircraft.
"Eight new Pantsir-S1 air defense systems, designed to provide point defense for civilian and military installations and to protect theater and strategic air defense complexes, such as S-300 and S-400, will participate for the first time in a military parade on the country's main square this year," Lt. Col. Vladimir Drik said.
The Pantsir system was unveiled at the MAKS air show near Moscow in 1995 and has been thoroughly modified since then. It is expected to replace the obsolete Tunguska air defense system in the Russian army.
The first 10 Pantsir-S1 (SA-22 Greyhound) air defense systems entered service with the Russian Air Force on March 18, 2010.
The system carries up to 12 guided surface-to-air missiles with an operational range of 20 kilometers (12 miles). It also has two dual 30-mm automatic cannons that can engage targets up to 4 km away.
The combination of missiles and cannons allows the system to effectively engage aerial targets at various ranges and altitudes.
Does anybody have vids of May 9th parade rehearsal?
