Military Review

"Army games 2015". Opening with our eyes. Reportage


Epochal events require epoch-making coverage. However, not being so sure of the possibility of illuminating the opening of the “Army Games” in such a way, we, nevertheless, made efforts to show everyone who wanted to see what we were witnessing. And almost no comments.

Comrade Defense Minister solemnly opened the competition.

Historical the piece was quite funny. The ancient Greeks as a hint of Olympic principles ...

And we - the army!

The winner made a lap of honor and sped off.

And to the stands were already countrymen. And they looked more powerful than the Greeks, to be honest.

These introduced themselves simply: Dobrynya, Ilya, Alyosha. Alyosha even pacified a little, but you can’t argue with Dobrynia.

And then the modern warriors came out.

The passage of teams of participants. In terms of drill, in our opinion, the best were representatives of Kazakhstan.

The paratroopers landed, gave the flags to the ground crew, and the flags very quickly turned out to be on flagpoles.

The music was also provided by paratroopers. In the back of GAZ-66, live.

Waltz of people and tanks impressed. And the waltz finals made me start.

Drenched dancers literally carried off the stage

And again knights, again Russians, only heavenly.

There were a lot of people, despite the fact that it rained every half hour. But the feeling of the holiday was.

    Thank you for the photo and report, two novels.

    Cool now "festivals" at headmistresses and tank courses))).
    Previously, there were no civilians there ... only the music of rusty iron of trolleys of the target field and the roar of dviglov interspersed with obscenities, and clods of dirt on boots.
    Probably getting old.
    crying repeat
    GOOD LUCK to our Mazut.

      good photo where marines are standing behind Shoigu. I still thought on TV that I knew, and then in the photo I examined more precisely that there in the front row the company commander, in which I served, and behind him another two contractors, also recognized. Our company has always been sent to such events (parades, holidays, funerals, shows, fussing with journalists and other events)
      although it surprised me. I thought it would be closer to bring the Black Sea or Caspian Marines, and they brought from Vladivostok

        It is good that our marines are also taken to such events.

    I imagine that the guests thought that if they had such a cold cold in August, then what about their winter. recourse

    Although the most important thing here is not victory.

    I wrote a comment yesterday on this article, and the article disappeared along with it.
    Today it is slightly revised, but it’s already not interesting to write about the event.
    "Thanks" to the moderators.

    At the beginning of the collapse of the Roman Empire, the slogan of bread and circuses was cultivated as never before. The helicopter crashed. What the hell fun can be if the country is in collapse. For 5 years in the Far East I do not remember a single flight accident. And then the planes are pouring hail. There was a defense minister, a tradesman, he sold everything, the Ministry of Emergencies became continuous emergency situations. Yes, and furagas like clowns, and painted worse than savages. Well, today I’m like that kind fairy, and why with an ax, but the mood is not important.

    Hmm. Personally, my opinion is some kind of nonsense. Watch the 1981 teachings and feel the difference ...

      I agree with you completely - the theater of the absurd, instead of real combat training of the operetta, window dressing and nothing more. It seems that Mr. S. Shoigu just does not understand why the Armed Forces are needed in principle and what the Minister of Defense should do as an official. It would be interesting find out how much folk money has been spent on this performance ?!

    Something the author is clearly not familiar with ancient history, calling the Roman legionnaires Greek warriors No. . What is it, the Roman legionnaire from the Greek hoplite or peltast can not be distinguished? And the Greeks on chariots ??? Yes, they could not be driven on a horse, not only on a chariot, the phalanx was their strength. Oh youth ....

    The situation changed, the war will be different. Then our army in Europe was only comparable to the present, and the other day the way to the English Channel, and the territory of Western Europeans, the Americans would cover nuclear rockets only as a last resort. cover even without discussion.

      The situation has changed

      Correctly changed, then these liberalistic ghouls that rule us would have banged without trial and investigation and all is not in debt. All these effective managers, marketers, Chubais and other trash.
