    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.

    A new multimedia section has been opened on the official website of the Ministry of Defense called: "Great turn near Moscow. Dedicated to the immortal feat of the defenders of the capital"... In this section, visitors can familiarize themselves with unique documents previously available only to specialists. The entire section is devoted to the events of the late autumn and early winter of 1941, taking place on the right wing of the Western Front, where units of the Red Army did not allow Nazi troops to bypass Moscow from the north.

    A tour of the tu-114 cabin as it is today. It was the biggest civil airliner until the Boeing 747 came out. It has a staircase too. To the lower deck. No wonder where they got that idea for the il-96. It has a little elevator that goes to the bottom floor to bring food to and from.
