    So many achievements so little time.

  2. Elsa says:

    Is one of the most important achievements of Russian people really “a minute of silence”?

  3. chip says:

    The K-7’s very brief first flight showed up instability and serious vibration caused by the airframe resonating with the engine frequency. The solution to this ‘flutter’ was thought to be to shorten and strengthen the tail booms, little being known then about the natural frequencies of structures and their response to vibration.
    K-7 first flew on 11 August 1933. The aircraft completed seven test flights before a crash due to structural failure of one of the tail booms on November 21, 1933. The accident killed 14 people aboard and one on the ground. Although two more prototypes were ordered in 1933, the project was cancelled in 1935 before they could be completed.

      DeHavilland Comet Breakups from resonance induced metal fatigue. The most spectacular to watch is a Vertol helicopter going into ground resonance and ripping itself apart.

  4. authorized1 says:

    haha, and what about a normal car? or normal flats? or roads?
    is there nothing to be proud of except killing machines?
    The plane on the first pic is Ukrainian (see the flag!)

    • Mike says:

      The plane is Soviet. Ukraine, along with Belarus was an essential part of the Soviet Union and Antonov Design Bureau is based in Ukraine, as is Ivchenko-Progress Design Bureau, which built its engines. Due to dissolution of the Soviet Union, the An-225 project was abandoned after one plane was completed in 1988. A second one is partially constructed, but has been halted since 2009. (reads a lot of wikipedia)

    • Novak says:

      Orbitrap? Nulceotron? Mobile Nuclear Power Generator? Satellite? Space Station? How did these kill people?

  5. testicules says:

    So many achievements ripped off America. The Soviets were great thieves.

  6. Musa says:

    When did Soviets invent amphibious ships or as you say it, “ship on air cushions”? I had no idea, really, I’m amazed. :|

    One more thing, you’re killing me with the size of this post. Maybe you should of made two posts out of this one post. I’ve seen you make a post out of just one video, so I know it can be done. :?

    No, two more things (I forgot), that Theremin instrument sounds suspiously like an Erhu. ;)

  7. George Johnson says:

    Seems like the Russians think bigger is better.

    • ... says:

      Russian are not the only one’s who think that bigger is better.
      Look at Americans,they are big,their cars are big and have big engines,big buildings and….,…..,…..

  8. Indy75 says:

    Ah ! The Tu-144 and Bouran. Great copies from Concorde and Space Shuttle. Except there were used a much shorter time…

    • testicules says:

      The supersonic bomber, Myasishchev M-50 is a great copy of the b58 hustler. Nothing original. Even their new fighter is a copy of the F-22

      • moo says:

        PAK-FA a copy of F-22? Why because it has two wings and two engines? The PAK-FA has its roots from the Flanker’s and anyone who cant see the difference between the two should not be commenting on the subject.

      • John from Kansas says:

        The only airplane the Russians ever “copied” was the Tu-4. All others were either domestic designs or licensed for production like the Li-2.

        • testicules says:

          Just not true:

          B-29 copied to the last rivet

          Just to name a few

          • John from Kansas says:

            Yes T, the Tu-4 was copied from the Boeing B-29. None of your other examples were copied by the Russians.

          • moo says:

            Are you just listing planes that look similarly? I do understand the misconception about the B1 and Tu-160, only difference between the two is one is bigger, faster, and has a lower radar cross section then the other. :) White Swan FTW

            • testicules says:

              What abut the freakin space shuttle!

            • cockatrice says:

              Doesn’t recognize that form follows function. It’s like a car manufacturer producing one very successful model. And then all the other car manufacturers copying it. Except when you walk up to it and realize that the shape may be similar, but the guts are totally different. So what, if the TU-4 was a copy. Look at a early Japanese Mazda engine. At first glance it’s a BMW ripoff, until you start taking it apart and realize that it’s a field repairable engine that BMW could have made so that mechanics didn’t have to use specialized tools to make it work. Enough stuff was different to actually be an improvement over the original design.

  9. Jero says:

    Where is “The Great Space Voyage” ?!?!?!?!?


  10. Maraudon says:

    Very cool! But what about the guy who could empty a whole bottle of vodka in 10 seconds?

  11. Leningradsky says:



  12. MikefromCanada says:

    In my opinion reverse engineering something is not a thing to brag about. The fact that the Soviets had to play catch up to keep in step with SOME of the American technology is just a fact of history. Almost every country has used technology from another country. The Americans learnt to heal bone fractures from German examples during WWI. And after WW2 the Americans used German rocket technology. (As did the Russians) Canadians have invented/discovered insulin,the pacemaker and electron microscope. I have no problem with different countries using these things. It is just a result of an ever increasing global community. Look at 1912-1945 Japan as a great example of technological piggybacking.

    • testicules says:

      You forgot to mention Canada made the robotic arm for the space shuttle.

      • MikefromCanada says:

        Ha,forgot that one testicules. Just because I’m an old WW2 junkie. I’ll bring up three deciding factors during the war. #1 Project Manhattan U.S.A./U.K./Canada. #2 T34 Tank/U.S.S.R. #3 M1 Garand invented by Canadian John Garand 1888-1974.

  13. MikefromCanada says:

    Oh yea, the Kalinin K-7 was very cool :) !

  14. SSSR says:

    And there is Russian hospitality.Maybe I will marry a Russian girl,no need to fly there,I could find 1 in 1 of the 50 states!

  15. Poupou-en-guyane says:

    Antonov is an Ukrainian company.

  16. sdfhjsdfh says:

    You sort of missed Chernobyl and a few millions of people murdered by Stalin & others (including Putin, who probably has his share).

  17. TheGenuineDon says:

    And the biggest concentrations camps network in the world? GU LAG? I do not think technical achievment is worth millions of dead people. That is the difference beetween communism and democracy: communism kills and terrorizes people in order to achieve great things, democracy pays people and permits them to live freely in order to achieve great things.
    + Pax et Bonum

  18. are you kidding says:

    All of these achievements taken from the labor and ingenuity of other nations while murdering millions of there own peoples . SPIT

  19. asteroid no. 444 says:

    And 2 of the greatest movies of all time: “Battleship Potemkin” and “Ivan the Terrible.”
    “Aelita” was also verrrrrrry coool!!

  20. Left SR says:

    How about the greatest anarchist theoreticians: Mikhail Bakunin and Peter Kropotkin.
    And one of the greatest anarchist men of action: Nestor Makhno.

  21. RAB says:

    We don’t dare forget Sikorsky he left his mark and saved a hell of a lot of people,and his invention wasn’t discovered by accident.

  22. SSSR says:

    And obviously there is vodka,originated in Russia,and now copied around the world.

  23. Roger says:

    Did I miss Soyuz? Even the US will be relying on those to get to the ISS.

    • Archy Bunka says:

      A. Bunka here. Soyuz is a fine craft, but it won’t go to the moon. I have heard that the Russians are building a moon ferry that will travel from earth orbit to lunar orbit, and yes, I am sure they are counting on the USA as a customer.

  24. Archy Bunka says:

    A. Bunka here. Greatest Russian achievement? How about Natalie Wood?

  25. Baron says:

    this is a lot of videos to watch…

  26. L.S.Zlatopolsky says:

    A good tape recorder? Wha?!

  27. Akskl says:

    Buran was shown 3 times! He was designed by my uncle, and he was not a Russian , he was a Kazakh, though a Russian citizen.

    • Cheburator says:

      Yes, this exibit shows achievements of not ‘ethnic russians’, but the people fo the USSR in general.

  28. gh says:

    Rather other a source of pride,killing machines are shameful !

  29. gh says:

    Rather than a source of pride,killing machines are shameful !

  30. gh says:

    Those are hideous killing machines. They wanted to exterminate the whole human race. Thanks God,they failed.

  31. gh says:

    The world needs more ploughs than killing machines !

  32. Ian says:

    Yes Russia does have a lot of acchievments worth noteing. Pity you get this page off to sucha bad start by putting up a picture of a Ukranian aircraft.

  33. GsomGsom says:

    Many achievments of Americans in 19th century – stolen someone else’s achievments (or purchased for chicken feed), which they patented faster.

  34. Boxx says:

    I notice Yuri up there, but no Sputnik?

  35. Leon says:

    I lived in Zelenograd in 70-80-ies it was best place to live.

  36. Those country sure has cool airplanes and all countries also has cool airplanes as well. I am sure your’e country is awesome.

  37. Jim in Boston says:

    The Most Important Achievements Of Russian People?

    in regards to your flying sub. you never actually built one so how is that an achievement?

    If that an achievement then USA claims the first inter-planet transporter, we call it the “Star Gate” because we thought it up.

    We also have and have had inter-planet spaceship since the 60’s the most famous one is call the Enterprise and comes in several versions

    Now before you think I’m just some arrogant American let me say that I think englishrussian is cool and have it saved as a favorite.

    I like seeing life in Russia

  38. cockatrice says:

    Woodpecker, heh, I remember coming across that sound on Short Wave and cursing it for the useless noise it produced.

  39. kenny says:

    you forget Mir space station! one of the most important achievements of Russia.

  40. Adolfo Camara says:

    Kalinin K-7 didn’t exist.

  41. Novak says:

    Most important does not donate useful it is more a hyperbole of impression. You should rather check out a list then of domestic achievements of the CCCP or Russian Federation (Or even the Russian Empire) if you want :)

  42. BO says:

    Many, so called achevments are stolen from capitalist worlds! :D

  43. I only respect for their sporting achievements, not their war achievements

  44. Bill says:

    What about the steam engine?
