We were so lucky! Not only did we get to see the May Day Parade, they also had a parade for the Russian Military. Actually, this one was just a rehearsal for an upcoming parade, but since the streets were already blocked off for the May Day parade, we got to see this:
This is a Russian transport.
This is a Russian battlefield tank. (small bore artillery)
This is a Russian heavy artillery tank. (Large bore, wouldn’t want to get in the way of one of these).
This is a Russian mobile missile launcher. (This is when they started to freak me out a bit.)
- This is a Russian medium size rocket launcher. This one would make nearby countries nervous.
- This is a large Russian rocket launcher. Makes me glad to live in a country most people can’t even find on a map.
Have you seen the “big guns” before, or only in the movies?
