    Unhappy

    Sad news:

    The "Russia-Eurasia Terror Watch" reports that a MVD/VV General has been killed.

    Never seen a Mi-8 with that type of nose. More used to the glass nose.

    The Chinese version of the KPV HMG was the Type 58. The gun in the pictures is fitted on the Chinese version of the ZPU-1 AA carriage.

    From left to right: Т-10В1 (T-10V1), Т-10В4 (T-10V4), and Su-34 (early variant) without engines.
    Are you sure?
    Just looking at the photo the first Fullback from the left (Blue 42) seems to have single wheel main undercarriage. The other two Fullbacks next to it both have the double staggered main wheels I have only ever seen on the Mig-31.
    IMHO this makes the leftmost fullback the early variant.

    On a few of those prior pictures of the wheeled vehicles.. i have a question. Are those actual white wall tires? Or are they some type of paint/tape to put on them for parading around in? Looks nice, but if they are actual white wall tires they wouldnt seem useful in combat..

    you are seriously asking this question??? Doesn't the united states paint they're planes pretty or their vehicles all shiny and painted up for parades, or air shows?

    Yes i am seriously asking this question. Its a logical question dude.. We hardly have tanks rolling around on streets for parads. When my dad was in the military i got to go to what they call "military days" on the bases. There you could see the tanks move around the field and heavy machinery move about, etc, etc. None, none what so ever had white walls. That is why i "seriously" asked the question.
