    First to say “not the best post ever”

    Some repeats.

  2. Carloz says:

    Don’t see any “inventions’ besides the first image, just a car junkyard.

    • Thomas says:

      You don’t have an eye to see: There was at least two amphibian truck in two pictures.

      That’s something you don’t see every day. Not even every year.

  3. Arvid Blomerus says:

    Maybe Jalta just is not a car at all.

  4. Yojimbo says:

    the 11th picture that is a DUKW a WWII American amphibious(or a Soviet copy) truck it was made from a 6×6 GMC frame I bet that is left over from WWII Lean-Lease that would have been a pretty useful in alot of places that the Red Army was fighting in WWII.

  5. John P says:

    The one labelled ‘A weird vehicle’ is American and I think called a DUKW and called by the troops the Duck
    There were thousands built during the war and used on ‘D’ day when the Allies landed in France.

    I always wonder why the Sovs park all these vehicles and allow them to just rot. Here, the Government sells all the retired stuff (except jets) to auction. Most go to private clubs (jeeps, 6X6)for hobbiests or to outfitting lodges or whatever. They stay in use and get a following, clubs, parts…
    Russia didn’t want it’s private citizens to have defunct military vehicles?

    • Musa says:

      They store a large number of jets in Tucson, Arizona

      • Trynn Allen says:

        And 90% of the military aircraft are maxed on airframe hours, or have other damage. The civilian aircraft depending on the age and airframe hours may only be eligable for cargo duty.

  7. Musa says:

    Did that plane tip upside down after it landed or did they tip it over? Did the pilot make it out okay?

  8. Kl says:

    The “weird vehicle” is a BAV 485.

  9. Arek says:
