Nice photos of the BEAR. Thanks.
One of the most bloody battle of WW1:
Some pix:On November 11th 1914 begined "Lodz's Operation". Borys Shaposhnikov, staff officer from 2nd Army named it "the most complicated of manoeuvrable period of WW 1st". During two weeks of battle 110.000 Russians an 90.000 Germans were reproted killed. Average during this battle daily lost their lives about 10.000 soldiers what is four times more than during the battle of Verdun (average: 2.300 killed daily)
Group photo of soldiers from 24th Regiment of Siberian Rifles just before deployment to a front. Only 15 men from the regiment survived the battle of Lodz.
Rest In PeaceNear Dąbrowa on November 18th and 19th 1914 r. fought 24th Infrantry Division from 2nd Army. There were four regiments: of Yenisey, of Krasnoyarsk, of Omsk and of Irkutsk. Around Lodz citt there are about 200 cementaries of Russian and German soldiers fallen during the battle
Very interesting article about the battle http://miasta.gazeta.pl/lodz/1,35153...as=5&startsz=x - unfortunatelly in Polish only
The MBT is in all cases a T-72B, though the pic closest to the top is one of the early models, without the mounts for Kontakts ERA.Is that MBT a T-64??And the APC is BTR-80??
And what are the other engineering vehclies
You'll never see a T-64 in a photo from Russia unless it's at a plant for scrapping, but the most obvious difference is that the IR searchlight on a T-64 is on the other side (along with the turret not looking the same, and the Kontakts ERA arrangement on the T-64BV is much different).
The APC is a BTR-70- you can tell because it doesn't have full-size doors on the side.
Thx for your help,Leo1 and MZKT
I haven't heard much about BTR-70 before
wow, what a rare pic, thanks!
i hope britain and russia stay freinds..........
