    Hi, I am new to this website, I hope that me being 5/8 Russian, 2/8 Ukrainian and 1/8 Belatussian will not interfere with our ability to communicate in a strategic way.

    Here the Russian Army is training to use “ramming technique,” to save ammunition.

    Please delete these photos from internet as they reveal military secrets. Baltic nations must not have the details of this operation, or they will be prepared for ramming of their cars in streets of Tallinn, Riga, and Vilnius when “Operation Reclamation” begins.

    Thank you for your cooperation.

    I bet he wishes he was riding shotgun not cannon!

    Is that flash of red on the ground underneath the cannon a warning rag that had fallen off? In the US the cannon-tower would be at fault here if there was no red rag tied to it. Maybe it fell off right before the unlucky driver arrived.

      In the UK, projecting loads must have some kind of high visibility element attached to the extremities to prevent this kind of accident. The driver of the towing vehicle would be judged at fault if someone ran into the projecting load unless such warning markers were displayed.

      It’s actually quite a small field gun, and like all such devices, it’s painted to make it hard to see. In any case, the view the driver has of the barrel of that gun isn’t much and no-one with any experience of actually being at the controls of the car would have any trouble understanding how easy it would be to fail to correctly judge what distance they needed to keep for safety.

      A giant cannon looks like this:


      (in case that doesn’t come through: search on Wikipedia for `Paris gun’)

    I hope that he has car insurance. Those can be pretty expensive to fix.

    Hi Kostya ! Do you like gay sex ?

  17. Setan HIjau says:

    how come i have a feeling that this cannon was towed by the trcuk that squished the car in another news?

  18. John from Kansas says:

    Remember to keep a proper braking distance of at least two cannon barrel lengths for every 10kph.

  19. MOHAN says:

    Please give it to M.Ahmedinijad he will be happy.

  20. Indian by Nature says:

    please donate it to M.Ahmedinijad if you cant handle the cannon.

    Great site. I have enjoyed seeing the photos and reading the stories about the tanks that have been recovered.

  22. sam says:

    this is why you’re supposed to put a flag on the end.

  23. Jony says:

    Hi Im new here. That truck wich transports cannon supposed to be guarded by pilot car or to have flags on it.

  24. PKS says:

    The cannon is ZIS-3 76 mm field gun from WWII.

    And it seems that it was properly marked, as there is a red flag lying on the ground beneath the barrel.
