    I don't think there is difference in size between MiG-29 9.12/.13 and M/K. Atleast i don't remember any. There is ofcource difference in the spine, lerx, stabilisators, electronics and so on.

    You can see bomb racks under it. So i guess it is trainer for Tu-22M3 crews.

    UAZ developed a new off-road car for the Ministry of Defence of Russia

    Specially upon the request of the Ministry of Defence of Russia the Ulyanovsk auto plant developed a unitary cross-country car on the basis of the off-road car UAZ Hunter which got the index UAZ-315108.
    The new plan for development of Armed forces of Russia means updating of the car park and transition to diesel engines. A multi-purpose command vehicle UAZ Hunter 315108 is equipped by the new diesel engine of ZMZ production and completely meets all requirements of the Ministry of Defence of Russia. The Ulyanovsk auto plant will start to complete the order already in the first half of October. Quality of all off-road cars will be controlled by military representation of the Ministry of Defence of Russia, accredited at UAZ.

    Hmmm...

    This guy looks quite different from Tu-134UBL, the designated
    trainer. No pointed nose, in particular.

    Must be some civilian Tu-134 version converted for training of bomber
    pilots, if those are indeed bomb racks. Interesting.

    In all districts of the Russian army there will be the brigades armed with operational and tactical rocket complexes "Iskander". About it as informs ITAR-TASS, the commander-in-chief Land forces of Russia general Vladimir Boldyrev during doctrines "Ladoga - 2009" has declared on September, 29th. First such part will appear in ВС the Russian Federation in 2009.

    Boldyrev has specified, that structurally rocket brigade will consist of several battalions, in each of which will be on four launchers "Iskander". "It is enough of It for the decision of tasks in view", - the commander-in-chief of Land forces has underlined. Thus, as he said, in the fighting complete set of systems of arms there will be both ballistic, and cruise missiles.

    Well, unlike Tochka-U, Iskander-M and its reloading vehicle are equipped with two missiles each
