I'm Russian currently residing abroad. US to be exact. As you may have guessed I'm too, migrating from mp.net
I rarely posted there, mostly lurked the Russian military photo thread. It was my go-to place in Russian military developments.
Its sad to see that thread die with all the thousands of pictures there, but what can you do. Hopefully rd.net will be just as good if not better than mp.net as the wealth of information about Russian military.
