    Dear VO readers, you have noticed that there are no machine guns in the positions. This is how they prepared for the war. The Japanese had 10 times more machine guns than the Russian army. They were supplied by Germany and England. I have the honor.

      is perplexing, ours, who prevented the purchase of machine guns? Again "Tsarskoye Selo gopher" king not in business, all the boyars and "foreign enemies"?
      And so, in principle, always .... a trend or tradition? what

        then who prevented us from buying machine guns? Again, the "Tsarskoye Selo gopher" the king is not in business, all the boyars and "enemies overseas"?

        But what, the task of the king to monitor the purchase of machine guns ??? ... as well as plows for peasants, cutters for turners, syringes for nurses ... tongue Well, why do people laugh!

          No, of course tongue if you do not take into account that at that time we had a monarchy, google to help bully
          The king’s task was hanglay off On stake who didn’t buy or steal money intended for purchase
          plows for peasants, cutters for turners, syringes for nurses ...

          Joseph Vissarionovich then coped with this task wink , albeit by methods that I do not approve of.
          Have a good laugh? laughing laughing laughing
          Py. Sy. There would be a parliamentary republic, there are no questions, and if so put
          During the census, Nicholas II wrote about himself: "The owner of the Russian land."

          then answer.

        It seemed like something was purchased from us, and if I’m not mistaken, practically everything went to strengthen the fortresses in Russia, initially it was sort of planned to use them like that ...

      62 machine guns only in Arthur on 17.07.04/XNUMX/XNUMX.
      Did the Japanese have 620? Is this taking into account the fact that they started without them at all?

        Exactly. The Yapas started without machine guns at all. Whoever does not know the meaning of the word "absolutely", I explain: absolutely, complete zero.

    Machine guns were installed only to protect the dead zones. Yes, and they were moody ... guys remember that this is still 1905 .... they wedged very often.
    Machine guns and small-caliber cannons — sometimes old muzzle-loading Chinese — plugged the dead zones.
    By the way, the pictures are mainly from the Wolf Mountains - and this is still far from surrender.
    It is strange that there are no pictures of Electric Rock and Golden Mountain. Their photos are preserved the most.
    There should be a photo of Stesell himself behind a machine gun.
    It’s a pity they don’t show photos of Kondratenko, Bely, Port of Arthur Totleben and others .. but they managed to build the city’s defense in the shortest possible time in the conditions of the 20th century war (it was not Sevastopol anymore)
    But a lot is interesting. In general, I heard a lot about the gloom of the Portarturian landscape - I still looked at the views from the sea, but here it’s really sad. Clay sand mountains .. Manchuria, obviously not our steppes.
    Peace to the fallen heroes of that war.

      The fire system generally assumes a certain separation along the lines of destruction. Shotgun fire can just as well be called plugging the "dead" zone of artillery. It is logical that they were used as it should be in defense.

    December 1941, the Japanese squadron goes to Pearl Harbor to roll the Americans. In the wardroom there are pilots (almost all of the samurai families). To increase the fighting spirit, they perform the "Ballad about a warrior who sacrifices himself!" This ballad was written IN MEMORY OF THE DEATH SOLDIERS OF THE IMPERIAL JAPANESE ARMY IN RUSSIAN BAYONET COUNTER-ATTACKS UNDER PORT ARTHUR !!! What a shock our heroic ancestors had on the Japanese if 35 years after the "victorious end of the war" they remember Russian bayonet counterattacks !!!

    1904 year, Russian troops for distant lands fighting for alien interests.
    1987 year, Russian troops in alien hot lands are fighting for incomprehensible interests.
    2014 year, the Russian troops do not understand whether they should fight for their interests on the threshold of their home.

      EEE bl .. minus shtafki explain the position, I generally mean that the army has always been substituted in political games. In order for us to do such a difficult job (killing your own kind disagree with you). We need such a simple word ORDER
