    Other way around. ECM. Mi-8PP. And second pic is Tu-134Sh, they are bomber crew trainers. You can see bombracks on them.

    Moar photos from recent sniper competition, from operator`s blog:

    It had taken place at EMERCOM facility for refugees (or, FEMA camp, the horror! Whatever you like better )













    Both civilian and military and law enforcement shooters participated, hence the motley.. crew Not a regular case of dress uniform №8. Same goes for variety of rifles used, though, truth be told, situation among actual personnel quite similar - there are Sako`s, Steyr`s and AI rifles in use.

    ORSIS rifles are popular among civilian shooters, but I expect it will be some time before they will made it to the troops in actual quantities.





















    Unlikely choice for shooting at 1200m







    There is no telling how many of these seemingly AI rifles actually manufactured by ORSIS, with their barrels and AI stocks.







    Cuztom shootas of the army special forces team, who took 1st place :

    Been curious for a while - why was the side glass window kept under the armor plate? It used to be for greater visibility, but now the plate completely blocks it making the window somewhat a redundant weak point.

    It really doesn't, as I understand it. The main point of this window is to give a downward visibility for landing, and you can see down along the armor plate all you want.

    Wonderful set of pictures detailing an Il-14 restoration
    http://russos.livejournal.com/829471.html

    (Yes it's military related since the Il-14 was also used for transport roles )

    Edit: The restoration has already been finished http://sdelanounas.ru/blogs/24772/

    Thanks for the response.
    I mean for example not wearing the Red Star, this is very uncommon in a Russian military plane, and also the camo is a bit different of the russian standars

    Nice link, thanks! The aircraft needs really a lot of work, I would be scared if I were in their position.
