11 Russian Invention Can Create Safe Passages in the Mine Fields!

Russian Invention Can Create Safe Passages in the Mine Fields!

  Take a look at this video! This is how Russian invention that's called "TROPA" or "the path" in English works. It's very helpful for minesweepers - it creates a "path" or "tropa" inside of the mine field for the troops safely pass thru. The most interesting in this is how it works. The process involves a small rocket. A soldier
ties a hose full of explosives to this rocket and launches it. It flies to the other end of the mine field and lands there with the explosives hose attached. Then the operator explodes this hose and this way a safe way appears inside the mine field! Watch this short video to see it in action!

1 Most Unusual Buses of the Soviet Time

Most Unusual Buses of the Soviet Time

We have become used to thinking about buses as ordinary iron bodies with seats, but some models can be quite curious. These hit the roads during Soviet times, and this type of ride was probably never boring. Let us begin with the
