3 Russian Combat Helicopters KA-52s  Being Prepared

Russian Combat Helicopters KA-52s Being Prepared

As soon as the Russian air force began its strikes in Syria and there is the possibility of more military weapons and personnel arriving to the Middle Eastern country soon, we want to show you what is being prepared for combat. These are KA-52s helicopters called "Alligators". Back in Afghanistan Soviet Union used a lot of helicopters to fight pre-Taliban forces. Then in modern day Afghanistan
American forces use a lot of helicopters too which proved to be very useful to fight small groups of the enemy.  So it's kind of unlikely to us that some of these are going to arrive (if not yet arrived) in Syria soon. Meanwhile they are being intensely trained in Russia.  Thanks to Yuri, a blogger we have a chance to take a peek at the latest Alligator drills.

Day on the Russian Strategic Airbase DOMNA

Thanks to awesome Russian blogger calling himself su_30m, we are able to see what is supposed to be top secret, especially back in Soviet era - day on the strategic Russian Far Eastern airbase Domna. It covers a 2000 km long area of Russian Far East and before it was practically impossible to see what they are up to. It was even more top secret before,

7 Production of Russian SU-34 Fullback Twin Engine Strike Fighters

Production of Russian SU-34 Fullback Twin Engine Strike Fighters

The Sukhoi SU-34s are Russian twin-engine, twin-seat strike fighters, intended to replace the older Sukhoi Su-24s. Not many of those are deployed yet. The first jets were received into the Air Force in 2008 - and as of July 2015, only around 70 aircraft are flying. These planes and its production facilities were probably top secret before, and maybe in Soviet Times
it would be totally impossible to get into the facility. However nowadays some bloggers with connections are able to get into the factory and can even take detailed photos of what's going on in those factories. And thanks to one such blogger - Aslan - we are now able to see the previously top secret stuff at Sukhoi's Novosibirsk air factory.

4 Russian Two-Barrel  Submarine

Russian Two-Barrel Submarine

A Russian submarine with two torpedo tubes, with two HUGE torpedo tubes, was produced in the 1950s by Russian Navy engineers. A truly weird creation of Soviet engineering thought -
partly beautiful, partly awkward and in many senses unique. It could carry nuclear loads, too. The photos and some description of this interesting submarine is inside!
