Cool pictures of further military hardware
Russian authorities seem to have lend strong support in the making of this movie. As such, there’s lots of real military hardware in the movie that otherwise is only seen mocked-up. For viewing pleasure, I am attaching some true highlights, PeeWee055 (talk) 09:50, 4 December 2013 (EST)
The business end of a Mil Mi-24 Hind as it races across mountainous Caucasian area to attack a convoy of Chechen terrorists.
A Mil Mi-24 Hind unleashing hell, note the detailed view of the cockpits and the brass being ejected from the machine gun .
When terrorists are escaping in a BTR-70 armoured personnel carrier, Aleksei jumps on its roof from a Bölkow-Blohm BO-105 helicopter.
The Ilyushin Il-76 cargo plane with the last remaining terrorists on board making its way towards Rome, escorted by Sukhoi Su-30 fighter jets.
A very detailed front view of a Sukhoi Su-30 fighter jet. Note the spacious twin-cockpit, the IRST and the underwing air-to-air missiles.
During an emergency landing on a snowy airstrip, the rugged Ilyushin Il-76 is almost leaning sideways as it approaches the ground.
