10 Military Treasury of Moscow

Military Treasury of Moscow

Posted on June 17, 2012 by team

We are at the Central Armed Forces Museum of Moscow. Where else one can see so much military equipment in one place?

The museum has been existing since 1919, in the new building – since 1965. It’s one of the largest historic and military country museums. More or less modern equipment was brought here 15-20 years for the last time.

Stand with manual armament. To the left is a light anti-tank weapon RPG-29 “Vampire” and 105 mm ammunition for it. From top to bottom: 9mm noiseless gun of Serdyukov system “Val”; 5,45mm gun of Nikonov system An-94 “Abakan”. Green box on legs is an AP mine. To the right – an anti-tank mine U-TM-83.

LAW RPG-18 “Mukha”. Lower is an anti-tank granade PG-9. RPG-16, a manual anti-tank grenade launcher, is under it. The lowest is a manual grenade F-1, manual grenade RGD-5 and two push-button AP mines.

    “shell RDC-41 weight – 41570 kg.”

    OMG, that’s the weight of an average ICBM (the actual projectile weight was about half a ton. And it was not loaded with a usual TNT, of course)
