I would like to ask about the history of 'ZSh-1' helmet. When was it introduced ? I read that it was developed in the 1990s. However I saw pictures of such helmets being used by special units of East German as well as Czechoslovakian police in the 80s. The only difference is that the Czechoslovakian ones had a transparent face cover and a communications module. Maybe these were previous versions of 'Zsh-1' ?
I'm confused about it. I will be grateful for an answer
There was such designation for sure.
I don't know about exact planes and their b\n.
There was probably such designation indeed, at some point. Who knows how long it lasted, however, in service there is only SM and SM3. SM did experience small cockpit changes, but nothing large enough to be called SM2. So, there is no real SM2 frames. There is 48 SM's, and 12 SM3's and that is it. I was referring to bort number 56 which was the original test plane for the SM version. It was also later modified to serve as test plane for SM3 modification.
Hahaha. It does that. If you cross into Greece or close to the border then SMS "welcome to Greece", if close to Albania "welcome to albania", once I had the phone on and landed in Sydney and said "welcome to Australia" and got a call from Macedonia direct.
Gentlemen, I received a lot of positive feedback and cookies after my first release of Su-34 Grey photos into public domain. I think, it could be a good tradition to release into the public domain some of the good photos took during interesting events.
This Monday I visited the first rehearsal of the Victory Day Parade. I was able to take a short walkaround of Topol-M TEL and want to share with you. All photos are in pure original resolution 5616x3744 without editing and watermarks. I release these photos posted below into the public domain. Use them for any purpose, without any conditions.
