I was trying to compare it to other tankers with similar configuration, and the smallest I could find was 2800 gallons. It looks like about a third of that but could be less — didn’t try to work out dimensions. Could be as little as 500 gallons. At 6 pounds per gallon even that much would be overloading it — thanks for the info!

That’s true, you won’t see anything like this in the West, the farther west you go, the more professional police looks.
I am not implying though that Russian police is less effective looking ragged as it does. An interesting fact is that police in some former combloc countries, not ex-soviet though, look as bad as their Russian counterparts.

I believe that, even in Russia, there is some sort of dress code for female police officers. Here in the West where I live, I have never seen a female police officer wearing anything but uniform pants and boots.

Kudos to the photographer for capturing the perfect angles.
There are so many interesting details to see,and the frame looks super solid. Air intakes for engines, transmissions,bleed air to mix with exhaust gasses.
What is that round gadget for under the nose? I am guessing some kind of radar. The pods at the end of each wing are they holding anti missile flares?
This baby even has its own starter/generator,is that what its for?
So many new things on this bird.

Russia definitely has expertise in some industrial areas, related of course to defense but can hardly be labeled as an industrialized country. Indigenous consumer products are scarce, foreign brands are made locally. Hi tech industrial and consumer products are imported. I very much doubt the advanced CNC machines are locally made… Phfew

Comment on Modernizing MiG-31 jets at Top Secret Falcon Factory by Indy http://englishrussia.com/2017/08/29/modernizing-mig-31-jets-at-top-secret-falcon-factory/#comment-9661224 Tue, 29 Aug 2017 14:28:10 +0000 http://englishrussia.com/?p=169046#comment-9661224 “All machines used here are Russian made” : USSR had to import technology from western countries (namely, at least once from Toshiba in Japan) for military use. So I I guess I can safely bet that there are some non-Russian machines there. Almost certainly some German ones, for example…

Even though I am an American, I still want to say “Thank you” to your veterans for being willing to give the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Thank You.

We also take old bread (rye, wheat, white, etc) and bake and then use as croutons for salads or soups. Picked herrings are common on bagels with cream cheese…I don’t think I can think of anything to compare to the chopped soup though?

The beautiful Romanov daughters – the sweet looking Krupskia – Rasputin as a normal looking person – a totally different look at Karensky and most astonishing of all, the absolute monster Felix Dzerzhinsky sitting with his plump wife looking like a village postmaster on his day off. Wonderful work – congratulations to the artist.

There was “einsatzgruppen” other than Wehrmacht and they made so many war crimes against humanity. Better to watch the movie of 1985 “Idi i smotri” to understand. Nazis were bastards and even some of the regular soldiers were included in this crime on occasion. Simply: they were not innocents, they were invaders.

Winston churchill said it best : “The vice of capitolism is it’s unequal sharing of blessings , The virtue of Socialism is it’s equal sharing of misery”.
When socialism of either the fascist or communist stripe becomes the government the individual is suppressed or eliminated as the “state” dictates. Gulags , KZ Lagers , …summary executions were practiced by both forms of manipulation on grand scales. The genocidal starving of the Ukraine by stalin to the tune of 20 million people , the genocide of jews and anyone not down with fascism under hitler….. the brutal chinese “revolution Part 2″ under mao known as “the cultural revolution” murdered millions of chinese in the name of their god like government and holy mau. Any “ism” which subverts , silences , murders , imprisons the people in some twisted form “for the greater good of” is a cancer on humanity. .
