    Soviet heavy cannon.

  • 1st Imperial Camel Corps Brigade

    The one-humped camel (and its Asian relative - the camel (Camelus bactrianus)) is ingeniously adapted to life in the deserts. Long lashes protect the eyes as well as the nostrils from sand. They have wide steps, thanks to which they do not penetrate into loose ground. And legendary are their water reservoirs, hidden in humps. True, they are not water tanks, but ordinary fat. During a long march through arid territory, it is chemically incinerated, producing water, so the camel will last even longer without drinking. When he can drink, he quickly compensates for the loss, because he can drink up to 135 liters of water per minute.

  • 2006-2007 - Ethiopia - Somalia conflict

  • 6 inch Siege Cannon M1910

    6-inch (152 mm) siege gun vz. 1910 was developed for the Russian Army by the French firm Schneider following a 1906 competition for the supply of heavy guns. In addition to Schneider, the competition also attracted entries from Russian firms - Obukhov Steel Works, Putilov Plant and Perm Plant, British Armstrong and Vickers, Austro-Hungarian Skoda, German Krupp, Swedish Bofors and French Saint-Chammond. Despite the strong competition, French Schneider was the favourite from the start, closely followed by German Krupp. In mid 1909, a prototype 152 mm cannon from Schneider arrived in Russia, and in October of the same year, a 152 mm prototype heavy cannon from Krupp arrived as well.

  • Char D1 (Renault D1)

    The French tank Renault Char D was originally developed to replace the slowly aging Renault FT 17 tanks. However, the developers' effort to build a modern machine caused the tank to already belong to the category of main battle tanks. For its time, the modern tank paid for the manufacturer's efforts to reduce production costs and also for not quite solved equipment, so at the beginning of World War II, it was included in the units serving in North Africa. Nevertheless, these tanks were deployed to fight the German army in 1940 and the last pieces of equipment are decommissioned in 1943.

  • Light tank VT-5

    Even in the 21st century, tanks have an irreplaceable role on the battlefield, although their use is no longer as massive as planned in the second half of the last century.

  • T-54 - first tank of the Cold War

    During the Second World War (especially after gaining the initiative in its second half), following the combat experience and the introduction of new technology on the enemy's side, the Soviet leadership, together with individual design offices, tried to improve their combat technology in various categories. In the category of medium tanks, where the number of manufactured pieces reigned the T-34 tank, specifications were also set, which defined the new requirements for this tank. Thus, the specifications of the T-43 and T-44 (which serial machines still intervened in combat in limited quantities) and finally the T-54 were created.

  • T-54 model 1949 (T-54-2)

    After experience with the first serial tanks T-54 model 1946, work began in 1948 to improve the design of the medium tank (this work was accelerated by the decision to stop further serial production of T-54-1 tanks in January 1949 until the shortcomings were eliminated ). The individual elements of the design, which were to solve the problems of the T-54 model 1946, were tested on five prototypes built during 1948 and serial production of the new model began during 1949.

  • T-55M

    At the end of the 70s of the 20th century, it was clear that the T-55 tanks (T-55A) with their characteristics are no longer sufficient to perform tasks on a modern battlefield. Therefore, the leadership of the Soviet Army on July 25, 1981 decided to modernize them in order to increase the level of protection and firepower of the tank to the level of T-64A and T-72.

  • T-64

    Development work on the T-64 tank began in the early fifties of the 20th century, right after the Soviet army formulated the tactical and technical requirements for a promising medium tank. The development was entrusted to the Kharkov design office, which was the only one able to quickly start implementing this task. The required TTD of the new medium tank significantly exceeded the basic characteristics (firepower, protection and mobility) of the mass-produced T-54 tank, which could not be achieved only by further modification of the existing design.

  • T-72A

    Based on the decision of the custodial authorities of the party and the government of the USSR of 16 December 1976, the Design Office of the Ural Transport Engineering Plant led by V. Venediktov was ordered to modernize the T-72 tank in order to increase its combat and operational characteristics.

    History of origin and description of the aircraft

  • VŠRV-2

    VŠRV-2 ensures the fulfillment of the same tasks as the vehicle VŠRV-1, but intended for first-line units, which corresponds to a greater degree of ballistic protection achieved by placing the systems in the armored superstructure of the armored off-road vehicle TATRAPAN.

  • Mk. ČS (57 mm AA gun)

    Anti-aircraft cannon of Czechoslovak production. Developed by ŠKODA Plzeň, it gradually entered service in the anti-aircraft regiments of Country Anti Aircraft Defense Corps.

  • Conclusions of Soviet specialists on the US-Libya conflict

    In 1986, there were several confrontations between the United States and Libya, in which American planes bombed targets on Libyan territory and Libyan air defenses tried to shoot down American planes. These activities resulted in losses on both sides. What they actually were, we may learn a few decades after the archives opened. In this article, I will try to describe a brief course of the conflict as reported by Soviet specialists.
