I know this is one of image from Command and Conquer computer game, but is this type of military vehicle really exist in the old day, eg WW1 / WW2?
Sure they were, check about bombing runs by german zeppellins on london during ww1
The Zeppelin developed in 1914 could reach a maximum speed of 136 kph and reach a height of 4,250 metres. The Zeppelin had five machine-guns and could carry 2,000 kg (4,400 lbs) of bombs.
other thing i found on wikipedia:
Zeppelins were used as bombers during World War I, without notable success. At the beginning of the conflict the German command had high hopes for the craft, as they appeared to have compelling advantages over contemporary aircraft — they were almost as fast, carried many more guns, and had a greater bomb load capacity and enormously greater range and endurance. However, their great weakness was their vulnerability to gunfire.
The first raid was on 19 January 1915, the first bombing of civilians ever, in which two Zeppelins dropped 24 Χ 50 kg high explosive bombs and ineffective 3 kg incendiaries on Great Yarmouth, Sheringham, King's Lynn and the surrounding villages. In all four people were killed, sixteen injured and monetary damage estimated at £7,740, although the public and media reaction were out of all proportion to the death toll.
I think this is 429 separate motorifle regiment (58 army) at Mozdok.
Just quickly serched cossacs communities and mailing lists - nobody knew much of that.
429 motorifle regiment was named in honour of Kuban cossacs, so maybe they (cossacs) do military service in it (according to Russian cossacs national service Act, they have to do military service in units given traditional cossac's names)
Colour of this military form was thought up by the present enemy of Russia.
Here the test of a new jacket and the device of night vision PVS-14 of 3 generations.
It becomes simply black and is visible in wood at night very well!!!
It can is made specially? http://ru.youtube.com/watch?v=PR1nnDwq728
It probably is and no it has nothing to do with the color of the uniform because if that were so a lighter pattern would fare better in NVG's and some don't also old US army BDU's would also look completely black if it were the color and they dont. There's a discussion on this in another forum > http://www.militaryphotos.net/forums...d.php?t=127277
