Posted on August 25, 2018 by tim

These days, near Moscow, there is an “ARMY-2018″ expo show going on. It is the fourth time in a row that it has been held here. Marina, the photographer, went there and took some unique photos from the closed show.

(A reminder that all of the photos can be clicked to be seen in higher resolution, navigated with arrows)

There is over 26,000 different pieces of armaments in the exposition.

It goes on in 60,000 m2 of closed pavilions and 500,000m2 in the open air.

    This show is like some demonic and depraved toy store for adults. But sooner or later these items end up obsolete and in the junkyard, like we see in many other posts here.

    I don’t see the Buk used to bring down a civil plane over Ukraine not long ago. Good to see that the BMP terminator has been previously tested in Syria. Now I feel safer. That’s why the wars in Syria and Ukraine? To test new weapons? “Surely not!” Putin dixit.

    • www says:

      In the bombing of Iraq Yugoslavia Libya, Putin is to blame? Or is it that the Vietnamese attacked the United States and the US defended themselves on the territory of Vietnam? Brainwashing on CNN and BBC gives results.

      Western sponsored terrorist groups (like white helmets) arrange fake gas attacks. mass media unleash these fake news, there is an occasion for the invasion and bombardment of the countries. Many times the same scenario

      …”Now I feel safer…”.- LOL.

      SCARED? Of course you are… and that’s why you’re here.

      Funny kids.

    Wasted money,circus in town…..

  4. Muzzlehatch says:

    The Malka is similar to the US M110 203mm (8″) howitzer. The Americans, however, abandoned the M110 in the late 90s and cut up the barrels to make “bunker buster” bombs.
