  1. i live in Canada 4 km away from a damm F 18 base…..can only dream of having such beautiful missiles in my yard to ….make them a ««firework-like surprise!!

  2. I wonder if it is possible to buy one of those Soviet missile trucks. I always loved those things. Imagine driving down a US highway in one of those bad boys.

  3. I hope that in less than 30 years from now they would stop using nucelar weapons in every country for ever .

  4. Is this Strategic Missile Forces Museum in Ukraine?

    This is interesting stuff, thanks to photographer and ER for the post.

    It brings back memories of my early childhood and “duck and cover” drills in elementary school.

    I hated those drills because they made us get down on that cold hard floor with our little bare legs in a very uncomfortable position, for what seemed like forever.
    Anyway, I would love to visit this museum someday.

  5. This impressive. Must be visiting the museum. The official website of the museum http://www.rvsn.com.ua not enough to describe how to get to them. Can anyone help?
