The T-14 Armata tank will be the main feature of the May Victory Day Parade on the Red Square in Moscow. The technical innovations of Armata platfrom make the Russian tank an absolute leader among its Western analogues, a US media agency claims.

Russia’s cutting-edge Armata tank which was previously unveiled during a Victory Day parade rehearsal in Moscow will surpass all Western versions, according to a US media agency.

Before the final rehearsal of the May 9 parade the T-14 tank was shown to the public with its turret masked with fabric. Monday was the first time the Armata was shown uncovered. Continue reading

That time Ronald Reagan met Vladimir Putin

Ronald Reagan had called the neo-Soviet Union, today’s Soviet Union, the “Evil Empire” for a reason. It hasn’t changed and communism never died because a wall was simply demolished in Berlin. Nor did Reagan have much to do with that either, contrary to popular belief. This also wouldn’t be the first time US politicians have been fooled into not knowing what they’re looking at. It’s downright alarming to know how badly the west is deceived by the Perestroika Deception, and falls for the next trick, over and over again. Only if Reagan knew then that he had met Russia’s future leader of today who was bent on, and currently coming close to, bringing down America.

New US Military Space Plane Aims for 2017 Liftoff

The United States military is making progress toward developing a new unmanned space plane, which it aims to begin flight-testing in 2017.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) plans to award the first design contracts for the vehicle project — known as Experimental Spaceplane, or XS-1— in May or thereabouts, officials said. Current schedules call for the vessel to get off the ground for the first time in late 2017 and make an orbital test flight the following year.

DARPA has high expectations for the XS-1 program, which it hopes can eventually launch 3,000- to 5,000-lb (1,361 to 2,268 kilograms) payloads to orbit for less than $5 million per flight — and to do it at least 10 times per year. Continue reading
