    why there are japan tank here

  2. vorontsevich (f/k/a ayaa) says:

    Very nice.

  3. Haplo says:


    Very easy, during the last weeks of the WW2 the USSR started the invasion of Japanese territories (USSR agreed with the Allies to attack Japan when Germany was completely defeated).

    This hardware was captured during these days among with the Kuril Islands ;)


  4. Sean says:

    Because they were captured by the Soviet Union during the war with Japan.

  5. ptc says:

    That light tank LT-38 manufacturer is “Praga”, not “Prague” (Praga means Prague in russian, but this tan tank or the company does nothing common with capital city of Czechoslovakia). Marder III is build on the same undercarriage as LT-38, build in occupied part of former Czechoslovakia. And that medium german tank is not T-III, but Panzer III.

    • KokuzBekrija says:

      Actually wiseguy, for the sake of simplicity in Russian literature the names of the German tanks are shortened this way (e.g. Panzer II becomes T-II, etc), but I will have to agree with you about the 38(t) – it is very clear that the one who translated the signs from the museum is not familiar with their subjects.

  6. Russiafan says:

    Because Japan waged two wars against Russia. the first was the Nomohan incident in 1940 and the second the Russo-Japanese War of 1945. It lost both.

  7. Connor T says:

    Very cool.

  8. Dai says:

    “Art Storm” first time I see this exact name. I think it Stug III.

  9. Czech says:

    PTC -I would say Praga company has quite a lot in common with Prague in Czechoslovakia, since it was a Prague based company :-)

  10. liptonius says:

    That Fighter Ki-43-II (Japan) (aka “Oscar”) is a very rare bird…

    I’m surprised that some major museum has not offered a couple of million for it!

  11. 山下智久 says:

    Thanks for everyone!

  12. 山下智久 says:

    korea and japan are part of china!
    korea and japan were tributary state of china!

  13. Takolander says:

    Japan has never been under chinese control. The mongols tried twice in the 13th century but failed miserably.

  14. Johan says:

    Bofors is a Swedish cannon, not Polish.

  15. DK says:

    Picture 7 with description 75-mm self-propelled artillery weapon ArtStorm (Germany) is SturmGeschutz (StuG), isnt it?

  16. richard head says:

    The paintjobs are hideous. Other than that, great to see them being cared for

  17. econobiker says:

    GAZ-AA and a field kitchen is a very good display of items not usually preserved.
