    Herrr professor decided to please us with doubts every day and every other day?
    Thank you for mocking the mind.
    Photo # 1: This is rather an incitement "operation" in some Afghanistan or in the Khorog region.
    photo No. 3: There are a dozen of such species in the network.
    photo # 7: I was frankly pleased with the content in the text "opportunities for maintaining stability and security in the region. Starting from 2009". The question is, where is the toilet paper?
    photo # 8: Whinnying to hiccups from "The Emerald Warrior" teachings are taken into account the lessons of the operation to liberate Iraq, Operation Enduring Freedom, and other historical lessons with the aim of better learning. "It turns out that all the bloodbaths involved in the PENTAGON are cutely called" historical lessons ", just in the sediment and in ah ... Oh.
    And, of course, the crown of the entire exposition is not photo No. 9 itself, but the content underneath: The question is, how can one write such an essay about "A pair of highly mobile artillery missile systems M142, assigned to the 41st artillery support brigade, fire rockets during live firing at the firing range, March 13, 2014. The battery headquarters of the 3rd Battalion, 16th Field Artillery Regiment, 2nd Tactical Group of the Tank Brigade, 4th Infantry Division provides radar support for Company C, while the 2nd Battalion, 8th Infantry Regiment, 2- The XNUMXst tactical group of the tank brigade is adjusting the fire."
    100500 just resting!
    Or the most controversial is "assigned to the 41st Fire Artillery Support Brigade, Fort Hood Texasfire rockets during live firing at a firing range Udairi Range, Camp Buehring, Kuwait"??
    So we already know about it, but we don’t feel that mongrel are pulling towards our borders!

    Thanks Guerr Professor! hi

        Banned everyone! That you, as a true "patriot", could calmly enjoy "brilliant" articles about "fascist Kiev", "non-existent country Ukraine", the decaying West and stupid America? It is high time for this resource to be renamed, there are almost no articles about weapons, but swearing at other countries has become the main credo. The cartoons in the style of the Kukryniksy during the Cold War are especially touching.

    Hornet in the fifth photo takes a risky take off, the chassis from the take-off is repelled. I didn’t guess a bit with traction - and swimming was served.
    Slightly off topic - in the early nineties, in the era of a general mess, we saw similar things on Georgian, Armenian and Abkhaz flights from Adler. Poor An-24 instead of 48 passengers received on board under 60 people, including the crew (all for free, of course) + baggage. So they took off, starting from the fence of the airport with pneumatics laughing . All this continued until one such board crashed in Georgia and the debriefing and identification of those involved in the departure process began - on board according to the documents there were 48 passengers + experience, but in fact there were more corpses on the 4 ...

      have you seen his comments? If the article is about the Great Patriotic War, then he is treating us about the greatest contribution of Americans to the war, if the article is about Russian or Soviet military equipment, he begins to omit it in every possible way. In articles about Syria and Israel, he hangs noodles on our ears which Assad is bad. And he uploads beautiful photos of only Americans.
      You registered on the site 2 months ago, maybe you didn’t see the ***** that he wrote in the comments earlier - as you will see in the future. I have nothing more to add. You will read his comments further - make sure that the professor is a regular bedding.
