But when its pilot tried to land, the aircraft turned and the engine fired. So as you may see it was extinguished after landing.

    • You don’t have an eye to see: There was at least two amphibian truck in two pictures.

      That’s something you don’t see every day. Not even every year.

  1. the 11th picture that is a DUKW a WWII American amphibious(or a Soviet copy) truck it was made from a 6×6 GMC frame I bet that is left over from WWII Lean-Lease that would have been a pretty useful in alot of places that the Red Army was fighting in WWII.

  2. The one labelled ‘A weird vehicle’ is American and I think called a DUKW and called by the troops the Duck
    There were thousands built during the war and used on ‘D’ day when the Allies landed in France.

  3. I always wonder why the Sovs park all these vehicles and allow them to just rot. Here, the Government sells all the retired stuff (except jets) to auction. Most go to private clubs (jeeps, 6X6)for hobbiests or to outfitting lodges or whatever. They stay in use and get a following, clubs, parts…
    Russia didn’t want it’s private citizens to have defunct military vehicles?

      • And 90% of the military aircraft are maxed on airframe hours, or have other damage. The civilian aircraft depending on the age and airframe hours may only be eligable for cargo duty.
