Old and new Russian miltary hardware on show at Red Square Victory Parade

Red Square Victory Parade: Great War faithfuls like the T-34 and the brand new Armata T-14 tank were both on display at this year’s Red Square Victory Parade in Moscow today. With most Western leaders boycotting what was being billed as Russia’s largest ever display of military might in celebration of  the defeat of Nazi Germany, the attendant Muscovites, foreign dignitaries and celebrities were also treated to a drive-by of the new Yars-24 intercontinental ballistic missile.  Russia’s new stealth fighter jet, the Sukhoi PAK-FA (aka the T-50), however, was noticeably absent from the proceedings.
