This time we want to offer you a small photo tour of the Museum of the Armed Forces, the former Museum of the Soviet Army in Moscow. The museum is small, but as they say, "delicious." Many unique exhibits that are not to be seen anywhere else. And the exposure is no less, but even more interesting than many other museums in the country.
The essence of this small institution is versatility. Little tanksa little artillery. In total, which was in service with the Red Army and the SA, in its area can not be shoved, unfortunately. But what is is often unique.
And it was very gratifying that the museum staff managed to make exhibitions dedicated to Afghanistan and Chechnya. It was evident how much effort it was worth biting off precious square meters from the most interesting expositions. But they did. Which is very pleased.
However, judge for yourself. We made a small selection of footage, the most interesting in our opinion.
Let's start with outdoor exposure.
Tank T-38. Rare instance
T-28. This is not even in Kubinka.
Training plane "Dolphin"
ZSU in the landing version
Artillery Fire Control Machine
130 caliber anti-aircraft gun mm

Well deserved exhibitor. Without it there would not be a large number of exhibits.
A separate exhibition is devoted to prisoners of concentration camps.
And these we also will not forget
Ivan Kozhedub's tunic
Alexander Pokryshkin Awards
This is a gift from Pilot Powers. Involuntary, really ...
And this strange sculpture stands not far from the entrance to the museum:
