Luxury Bulletproof Vests

  Do you know what these are? I mean, do you think this is some sort of stylish suite and some crazy colored vest? Oh yes, you might have read the title: they are bullet
proof vests that the Moscow Institute of Steel manufactures for people who wanna party but want to stay protected from somebody with a gun. One more shot inside:

11 Someone Stole and Wrecked a TRAIN near Moscow

Someone Stole and Wrecked a TRAIN near Moscow

Ok, now for some weird news. It was reported last night that someone sneaked into a train station in Lobnya, a town near Moscow, and... stole a train. Then he (or a group of
people) rode this train on the railroad for some time and then... crashed it and wrecked it. Then they escaped. Just imagine. There are some more photos and info inside.

3 TU-154 Transported by Ground

TU-154 Transported by Ground

When the plane can't fly but needs to be moved, it hits the roads. Not an easy task for a big TU-154 passenger plane. This colored plane belonged to a
Russian regional airline and it seems that their plane not needed now and needs to be moved somewhere else. To see how they did it, look inside.

6 Russian Airforce of 1915

Russian Airforce of 1915

We've seen here a lot of the contemporary Russian air force, but what about 90 years ago, what did it look like? This is how. Horses, horses, some planes, horses again, no pavement on the runways, wooden sleds and more. Let's see it in some more detail
inside. At that time, Poland was a part of the Russian empire and the Russian air force had a base there. Here people are cleaning the air field and... tramp down the ground with their legs in order to get more hard surface for the planes.

10 Place with Helmets: an Abandoned Military Complex Weaponry

Place with Helmets: an Abandoned Military Complex Weaponry

Ok, hoping you all are having a good weekend, so now let's see the abandoned artillery weaponry located pretty close to Moscow. This place is pretty much in good form. Alex, who
visited this place, says its known as "army unit with helmets" among his friends - the men who are eager to visit different places like this. It's called this because...

Kamaz Truck Reimagined as a Home

I bet you've seen houses on wheels before, nothing new here. However, this one is made by some Russian actor and is not something made in a factory but
by himself. It has a living space for the actor and his friends and a garage for storing his bike and other stuff. Let's see how it looks.

11 Mountain Resort Built for Olympics near Sochi

Mountain Resort Built for Olympics near Sochi

Before the Sochi Olympics, this place appeared in the Sochi Mountains. Ilya, who went there and took the photos, calls it "100% child of Olympics" probably meaning that this was "ordered" to built so that guests of the Olympics had one more attraction to
visit. However, no matter that it's an "artificial" project, it turned out to be pretty well done and we have a chance to look into this "Roza Hutor" (that's his name) resort up close. From a distance it looks pretty European stylized.

4 Old Photos of Metallurgic Plant in 1908-1910

Old Photos of Metallurgic Plant in 1908-1910

Pretty nice photos of the steel casting metallurgy plant of old Russia. How the plant was built and how it looked at time, etc  - from back at the beginning of
the 20th century. What's interesting is that even at that time they already used high powered electric furnaces to melt steel! Let's see what it was like:

13 The Biggest Telescope in Europe and Asia

The Biggest Telescope in Europe and Asia

Timur has visited the biggest telescope in Eurasia, which is called BTA-6. It was built during Soviet times, in the Caucasian mountains. Conceived in the 1950s by Soviet
scientists who wanted to peek deeper into space, it's still active and now is used by Russian scientists. Here is the story and photos from Timur's trip:

1 Moscow Railroad Depots as Seen from the Drone

Moscow Railroad Depots as Seen from the Drone

So, as technologies develop, we now get access to a new tool - flying cameras. Some manufacturers of the drones actually name their products this way now, rather than just a flying thing for a purpose that isn't very clear. Photographers are catching up too, because using this thing they can take photos of the same old places but from a totally different angle. Like these
photos of various Moscow railway stations. Alexandr, the photographer, has got his flying camera and now he can share with us awesome panoramic photos of the stations. The biggest depot he got on camera has thirty nine railways coming all together in one big garage. How can you catch all of this in one shot if not from the air? See more inside:
