Odd looking Russian armor

 This blog is now a new website and can be found at   http://militaryhistoryofthe20thcentury.com/
 
Here are a few odd looking  Russian tanks and an armored truck.
These four tracked tanks were designed for fighting in marshy areas.





Su-27 very low fly by

Here is an incredible photo of a Su-27 flying on the deck. He is so low if he even blinks for a moment it could be  game over.

Armor Destroyed in Combat

 This blog has now been changed into a new website.  Most of what has been posted here will be on the new site and much more to come.    Visit     http://militaryhistoryofthe20thcentury.com/



Here are some more photos of destroyed tanks and other armor that I got from one of my Russian blog fans.  Seems to be mostly German armor but there might be one photo of a British tank.  It is hard to tell when some of these are so completely destroyed.















And I have not seen most of these on line at English sites.
