2 Saving Equipment from Shattered Ice

Saving Equipment from Shattered Ice

When traveling on an atomic ice-breaker, the crew often make stops and drop different equipment onto the ice, because the mission is not purely entertainment but rather scientific research. So people disembark onto the ice and spend time doing some scientific stuff, staying for days on the ice near the ship. However, there is a risk of the ice shattering,
sometimes it can happen very fast and these things are hard to predict. Now, this time when Sergey travelled with an icebreaker team, they had three containers of scientific equipment, life supplies and a few people out there on ice, when suddenly the ice broke and people were cut off from the ship. See how it went further on:

Sauna in the Typhoon class Submarine

You might not have known that the largest submarine in the word, the 174 meter (575 ft) long submarine of the Typhoon class, has got a sauna inside. Ok, once you've learned this you probably can imagine a pretty big roomy

How Optical Sights Are Being Made?

Remember a few days ago we saw an abandoned place full of optical sights? Now we have optical sights for guns again but this time its not abandoned and they are not made yet. We will see how those are being manufactured and assembled. Might be pretty interesting inside, thanks
to Aslan who has visited a highly secured production line of this Russian factory specializing in the long range aiming optics. Normal people are not allowed there with a camera but he went and made those photos! So let's see, that should be interesting:

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.

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.
