    Thanks for trying man!
    As i wrote earlier, i figured it out in my mind as the only way to kinda approve these plates would work, thought in very limited way. And i know soviets/russians do properly test their equipment, but i think they should have been pretty desperate to use such flip out panels as additional layer for armour.
    Good thing, that later on they applied ERA armour massivelly.

    Oh, since we are at it, anyone knows something about T-72B3 (B2 is rogatka)?

    It's indeed simply a demilitarized B-11, so it has nothing to do with the M-240.

    I guess that's the militay museum in Almaty?

    From what I know:
    - first person on the left wears a suit in Russian copy of German Flecktarn known as Flectar, I'm not agree with Raden5 that is Izlom pattern;
    - first person on the right wears suit in modernized [*******#333333]TTsMKK, I agree with Raiden5 about that;[/COLOR]

    Aleksandrit class minesweeper (Project 12700) the new Russian minesweeper class which is being constructed for the Russian navy. The first ship was laid down on September 22, 2011. A total of 4 ships are planned to be constructed. The ships hull is made of monolithic fiberglass and shaped by vacuum infusion which gives it advantage in minesweeping. Acourding to the shipyard's representatives the first ship's hull was shaped within 1.5 days, making it a world record.

    I have noticed some of the MiG-31s with 2 hardpoints under each wing. Can the external ones be equipped with AA missiles except tanks? I have seen photos of prototypes or for demonstrations with missiles (like the following photo I post) but never on aircrafts that serve with the Air Force and participate in exercises. The common fully loaded MiG-31 is with 4 Amos and 4 R-60 or similar types, nothing on the external hardpoints..

    All MiG-31's have four wing hardpoints. (I had fun discussion with Artjomh a while back about it)

    On all MiG-31 subtypes minus MiG-31BM the hardpoint closest to wingtip is meant for fueltanks only. On MiG-31BM those points are wired for normal pylons and weapons as well. So it can carry 4 R-73's or 4 R-77-1's.

    Your picture shows original MiG-31BM proposed by MiG. It could have ground attack weapons. By all accounts current MiG-31BM version cannot use ground attack weapons (pointless anyway).

    Thanks my friend once again! With such AA load MiG-31BM is a powerful interceptor.

    As I know, it was meant to use anti radar missiles Kh-58 and Kh-31, not other ground attack weapons.

    Yup, i didn't mean any other. Those were part of the MiG proposed update, but as i said RuAF didn't want/need it. Wise. Instead they have sharpen the plane even more towards being superb "long arm" platform.

    As i said, original BM could. The operational ones cannot.

    Aren't Interceptors suppose to be in air defence forces, rather than air force?
