4 Looks Like Those Work

Looks Like Those Work

It looks like this strange, home-made armor works. At least from looking at these photos of an Ukrainian armored vehicle after the battle. You can clearly see that
damage occurred to the metal bars but not to the vehicle itself and it looks like he successfully left the battlefield. Some more photos are inside.

7 Cruise Control from Kazakhstan

Cruise Control from Kazakhstan

This video is from Kazakhstan. Pretty much a part of USSR before, now a country. They say the economy of Kazakhstan is second largest among all ex Soviet countries, which clues to think that people can afford little bit more
there than in some other places. Like for example a car with cruise control. However, I don't think you have ever saw anybody who was using their cruise feature as this guy. Highly recommended to watch.

5 Washing Lettuce and Cutting Salads

Washing Lettuce and Cutting Salads

From time to time we get our hands on pre-made, pre-chopped salads in fast food chains, or sometimes pre-washed salad ingredients in the stores. I was thinking the salads were chopped on site in the local fast food place, and wasn't even suspecting that pre-washed chopped greens are using such a
complex conveyor system to get into those plastic bags. But Aslan, the blogger, has visited a place near Moscow where a lot of Moscow fast food salads are being made and now we can see how this is being done in reality. If you are still curious - there is a story inside.

4 If It Fits it Sits

If It Fits it Sits

    "If it fits it sits" - humorously say about the cats that tend to squeeze themselves into different sized boxes and other stuff. This Niva car ain't a cat, but it looks like this hole in the road was a perfect fit to it, so it couldn't resist. Or perhaps it
was at night and the driver simply didn't notice the hole. Whichever is simpler should be correct. It's from Ukraine by the way, but not where they shoot and fight, from some other "peaceful" region. There is one more photo of this accident inside.

No, really these are Russian passenger jets made of wood. A big factory making real planes out of wood. Want to see what they look like inside and to know
why they chose wood in the modern world to make planes? They look like boats with those carcasses made of wood. Why? We'll tell you inside:

7 Building Floating Bridges for Army

Building Floating Bridges for Army

Sometimes an army comes to a river that they have to cross, and the bridges are unavailable or are already destroyed. So here come the pontoon builders - army engineers that can quickly build a
bridge to move the forces from one river bank to the other. We have some photos of how these bridges are being set up and put into action thanks to Yaroslav. See inside for the show.

3 New Jets Delivered to Air Force

New Jets Delivered to Air Force

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.

5 Submarines Transported

Submarines Transported

  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.
