    That was a very impressive museum, lots of exhibits, diaramas and paintings. That and the Hermitage/Winter palace make up most of the good memories of the life back there.

    WOW, I've never see any of those up close, but know more about vehicles from the Russian inventory than from my own country. Most people would not believe the performance from some of the T series of tanks. Way cool!!!

    T62s
    T72s
    BMPs

    OH my!!!

    Thanks Max

    Wow, very cool. I never got to see St. Petersburg before we left Odessa, unfortunately. Your site is awesome, I'm there quite often. Never realized you were registered here hehe.

    Very cool

    I must have missed that while I was in St. Petersberg. Sadly my family doesnt see eye to eye with me on the historical value of big guns.

    You've seen one palace, you've seen em all, but artillery is a different story!:D

    Oh, sweet memories... I remember my dad and I going there almost every year back when I was a kid. I liked it so much he couldn't drag me out of that place. Thanks for bringing those memories back...

    Great pictures and a lot of history there. If I ever have the means I'd love to visit it one day. Thanks for getting me a little closer for free :D

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    What brand truck is under that "Kathuska"(sic) rocket launcher?

    Reason for question is "Old" story that so many Studebaker trucks were shipped to U.S.S.R. during "Great Patriotic War", WWII for Americans, that the term Studebaker came into common usage for the word truck.

    Remember, Big Boys like Big Toys!

    yes, many BM-13's (Katyusha) were mounted on Studebaker 6x4 trucks, received via Land Lease program
