They call this the most powerful serially-made revolver pistol from Russia. There are not too many photos available in the Internet, as it has been publicly displayed only once and the photos come from there, however what is known is that it is already being delivered to special forces. What sort of tasks does it
serve? I am not sure but people suggest it is being used to destroy the locks on locked doors and things like that. Also, what is interesting in particular is that the bullets used in this pistol are the same ones that go in Russian sniper's rifles. A few more photos and facts are inside.
A few SU-30M jets and a few training YAK-130 jets were delivered to the Air Forces in August. Those SU-30M are pretty fresh models as the first jets were starting coming into army just in 2012. Just two of such planes
arrived in 2012, and then fourteen planes in 2013. Now this year sixteen SU-30M's were planned to be delivered and those are a few of those. A few more photos and also the training YAK-130s are inside.
A couple more widescreen shots of two Russian submarines being transported through the Northern Sea Route from one part of Russia to another. The Northern Sea Route is where the ships go through the Northern Arctic ocean when it's free of ice. This way the journey is almost two and a half times shorter than if they go through the traditional sea route starting in St. Petersburg, then the Baltics - Mediterranean - Red Sea - Indian Ocean - South-East Asia - Japan - and then finally Vladivostok. This long route is more than 23,000
kilometers long and was traditionally used if the ships from the Western part of Russia wanted to reach the Far Eastern part of the country. In the summer they have an alternative and can go through the Northern Sea Route which is around 10,000 km long. Also, with the longer route, ships travel through half the world, while using the Northern Sea Route, the ships are all of the time moving just along the coast of Russia. So the submarines went the short way. You can click for large pictures.
