    Great thread DTA.

    Russia certainly cares for its past. A couple of days ago I just stumbled by accident across some Battery 35 on Crimea videos. What an amazing installation, you could see why it was Navy manned, much like the front of a battledhip. Comparing videos shows a huge amount of work has gone in there over the past 5 years to open them up to the public.
