Nice Photos of Russian Victory Day Parade Night Rehearsal

Victory Day (May 9th) parades are every year event in Moscow however photos from these events are pretty nice, especially from the night rehearsals – when army vehicles move across empty streets, pretty nice sight. Also this is the only way for regular people to see the newest Russian military vehicles so up close. Not every year the newest vehicles being brought to parades but this year they have some nice one, say the photographer Bluesmaker from Moscow. Let’s see his photos here:

Huge intercontinental “Yars” missile.

Inside this “box” there is a 23 meter missile that can carry up to four nuclear heads, in total of 300 kiloton of TNT equivalent. For example Chirosima bomb was only 18 kiloton and the damage was great, just imagine how much damage makes 300 kiloton rocket.

They say currently Russian army has eighty of those.

Most of the Arctic vehicles are on tracked chassis.

Probably real polar bears would be sort of shocked to see all those in their Arctic tenures.

Still not clear what to fight for in Arctics, but plenty of vehicles are being made now for this.

Here is even an Arctic BTR.

Also as an idea – those white colored vehicles are good to use in deserts too probably. Maybe Syria?

  1. The Arctic camouflage is probably because Russia, Finland and Norway are in a dispute over certain areas in the Far North, due to the fact they’re rich in oil. Plus, back in the Soviet times, the Chinese made several threats to invade Siberia, due to strained relations with the USSR, and now that China is growing in strength, and due to the fact it’s already clashing with Japan, Vietnam and the Philippines over maritime areas in the Far East, the Russian authorities feel a little bit nervous about their largest neighbour.
    Though yes, the white camo would probably do pretty well in Syria, especially in urban combat (in destroyed cities, where everything is covered with dust).

  2. People trying to sleep….such a noise all night. No need to street-practice…just make sure the fuel tanks are topped off.
