Military Treasury of Moscow

We are at the Central Armed Forces Museum of Moscow. Where else one can see so much military equipment in one place?

The museum has been existing since 1919, in the new building – since 1965. It’s one of the largest historic and military country museums. More or less modern equipment was brought here 15-20 years for the last time.

10 thoughts on “Military Treasury of Moscow”

  1. “shell RDC-41 weight – 41570 kg.”

    OMG, that’s the weight of an average ICBM (the actual projectile weight was about half a ton. And it was not loaded with a usual TNT, of course)

  2. Your photo – centrarmforces001-31.jpg, your description – Grenade Machine Gun SPG-9, 1963; correct description 105mm recoilless rifle.

  3. “Remains of an American air scout Lockheed U-2 knocked in May, 1st, 2961 under Sverdlovsk.”
    Wow, they seem got it over 900 years from now…

  4. Russians will not hold such big territory for centuries if they not know how to fight.
