    The graduation mark of the Mikhailovsky Artillery School from 1911.
    The legendary glorious educational institution.
    Unfortunately, the Kolomenskoye Higher Artillery Command School, which was considered a branch of this institution, is closed. At one time, it also trained artillery officers for the Airborne Forces and the Marine Corps.

          "Artillery is the God of War!" And apparently Syria proved it once again, but the artillerymen with the missilemen "did not let us down." My congratulations to this well-deserved university and thank you for not forgetting ours! hi

    Mikhailovsky Artillery Academy is the predecessor of the Peter the Great Strategic Missile Forces. In 1938, relocated to Moscow. Later she trained officers of the Strategic Missile Forces. VA Strategic Rocket Forces celebrates the same holiday dates, only now they are destroying it for reasons unknown to missile officers ....

    Is the board with the mangerheim not hanging on the academy building? Are these events conspirologically unrelated? We are an order for you, are you guarding and cleaning the board from St. Petersburg shit? And from the point of view of the military history of beetles, commander?

    "... According to Sergei Shoigu, more than two hundred graduates of the Academy were awarded a complete set of St. George's crosses ..."

    If indeed the Minister of Defense allowed himself to issue such a pearl, then he (the minister), to his grandmother’s grandmother, needs to drive his referents and assistants for complete ignorance of the military history of the Russian State.
    Only the lower ranks, up to the ensign, could be full Cavaliers of the St George Cross, and the ranks of the officer corps were awarded the Military Order of St. George, which is not the St George Cross.
    And in the entire history of the Order, only four people were full cavaliers. These are Kutuzov M.I., Braclay de Tolly, Dibich and Paskevich. The awards of the 1 degree order were 25, 2th 121, third more than 600, 4th somewhere for 2500 thousands. I ask the experts of the order system not to rebuke me for the inaccurate number of Cavaliers, I am writing from memory ...

    And on this building hung a board with the name of General Karbyshev? She was removed to make room for a board with the name of Mannerheim? Somehow not comme il faut.
