    Favorite Soviet parade

    Post  gjet1666 on Sun Feb 17, 2013 6:43 am

    What is your favorite soviet parade? It can be any from the victory day parades of any year, to the october revolution parades. Mine would have to be a choice between the 1990 October Revolution parade (since it displayed the latest soviet technology) and the original 1945 victory parade just because it had comrade Stalin and alot of effort put forth. I didn't put this i the votes and polls section, because there are too many different parades. You can pick a post 1991 parade in modern russia, but I primarily watch the ones from the USSR.

    I am always looking forward to the next one just to see what they will show, but the old ones were always interesting with all the older types of equipment and systems.

    It seems that Russian artillery no matter how old, always look awesome.

    It is funny, but in the mid 1980s before the Mig-29 and Su-27 had been revealed and Soviet fighters were mostly tubes with engines and wings (ie Mig-21, Su-17 etc) or the Mig-23/27 or Mig-25 and I sort of looked in envy at the curves... particularly of the F-16.

    Now that the Mig-29 and Su-27 dominate the air force I now have a greater appreciation of the older types including the Mig-23 and other oldies.

    Of course it does remind me of fairy tales that are very popular still in the US, like the myth that the Mig-23 is a copy of the F-4 and the story goes that an F-4 was recovered in Vietnam and shipped back to the old USSR and they copied the air intakes... even to the point of including bullet holes in the intakes suffered during their acquisition.

    Must be hard to have invented everything. Razz

    Nice pic btw.

    I saw a MiG-23 at an aviation Museum on Oregon (same one that has the Spruce Goose)...it was next to an F-15. The width to length ratio was incredible, the whole thing looked like an arrow.

    Was blinded by the flashy curves... when I look at the 23 with older eyes I find I am more and more disappointed they withdrew all the single engined fighters so rapidly.

    Of course during the last 20 odd years of neglect the low maintainence of everything probably would have led to a lot of crashes so I guess it probably was for the best...



    What might have been...



    Can definitely see the arrow there...

    And a 27 carrying a sledge hammer:

    Hello, Any photos and informations about Levkov's last pre-war hovercrafts L-9, L-11 and L-13?

    Existed any experimental predecessors of first modern soviet operational AVC 1205 Skat (Gus class)?
