Corruption among Russian elite being blamed on low ranked law enforcers.
and for non-Russian speakers, they get to see a beautiful Russian girl in uniform
It's a secret - how do Russian fighters?
In vain - Chinese friends can copy the technology...
Great work. I wonder how long before some Chinese company comes out with an EDF version.
Separate Guard's MRLS Smerch [BM-30] division was relocated to South Ossetia to prevent possible Georgia's aggression.
http://newsru.com/world/06dec2010/smer4.html"Для предотвращения возможной агрессии со стороны Грузии недалеко от столицы Южной Осетии размещен отдельный гвардейский дивизион реактивной артиллерии, оснащенный системами реактивного залпового огня типа "Смерч", - сказал собеседник агентства.
Smerch can reach targets at 70 km distance, one volley hits area of 70 ha.
today I was Google Earth'ing above Russian airbase in Akhtubinsk. And this is what i found:
From left to right stands: MiG-25/31 or prototype, Su-27, Phantom and a MiG-21.
It looks like F-4 Phantom II fighter-bomber. I meassured wingspan and it's ~ 11.7m
Now i just checked U_96 blog, and i have found some photos: http://u-96.livejournal.com/2363042.html
So is it possible that soviet union got some ex-USAF(maybe during Vietnam war) or ex-Iranian Phantom fighter-bombers, when, how many, and HOW ???
the previous post has a picture that was a great help but if anyone has clearer images of the areas circled could you post them please. With the lower circle I would like to know if its a one piece or does she have wings like the Slavas or Kirovs.
