    myth said,..; when asked on how this thing turns,.. stalin replied." it doesn't need to turn, it will drive straight to Berlin."

    I see the Rocket tank is still preserved at Kubinka:
    Tank museum, soviet medium tanks and assault guns
    Is this the one, being used to obliterate an old WW2 German vehicle?
    YouTube - IT-1 - The rocket tank
    Interesting article on it:
    Translated version of http://armor.yurteh.net/Tanks/Modern/roket/roket1.html

    Following an article on the project in CMV magazine I looked for more on the Bizarre 'Object 279' 'Swamp tank', found a clip of it actually moving here, something I'd not seen before:

    What new things will the technology of tomorrow bring?
    Today still a venturous plan - tomorrow maybe reality

    Technology and economy in the Greater German Reich have gone into an unexpected upswing. The largest network of Autobahn highways has been constructed in just a few years, whole new industries were created and great architectural and urbanistic tasks are about to be realised. Although the war, that was forced upon us, makes it necessary to concentrate our economy on the war efforts, the great plans for the buildup are drawn with the certitude of our victory in mind. Many keen inventions and many thoughts that still seem fantastic today will then be realised. The pictures in this poster show on which branches the engineers are working today and what the technology of tomorrow will bring.




    Cheers,
    Adam

    Luxury Humvee From Russia | RussianFun.net

    While this might look like your average military truck but in reality it was heavily modified to make it more luxurious and comfortable for everyday use. Here is what they did to it:

    1. Made changes to gearbox making it switch gears via joystick.
    2. Changed the interior and installed soundproofing.
    3. Installed new windows & mirrors as well as new seats from Chrysler.
    4. Installed a rear view camera, and a heater
    5. And of course installed new music, & DVD player with screens for passengers.

    I would like to place an order for the last 3 vehicles pictured please.
    (Excluding the Humvee, I have no wish to be associated with organised crime...)
    Though I want the white truck body on the 6 wheelers chassis.
