Tank Spotting: Reportage Photography: T-34 Tank Museum

Yes, this is a vehicle spotter blog but tanks are also vehicles, of course, and the T-34 has already been featured, so anyway - from one of my other blogs - here is a story in photos (reportage photography) of a visit to the T-34 Tank Museum somewhere north of Moscow.


Tanks various in front of the museum building.

This is from a couple of years ago, if memory serves.

These first photos are from the viewing area in front of the museum building.

Here is a Vostok Komandirskie tank watch and the very tank pictured on the dial which is a T-60.

Tank for the inquiring minds - you can walk and climb on it - but cannot get inside.

The Tsar Tank.

The Tsar Tank was maybe the world's largest tank built by Russia in the first World War, and this is a full-size replica.

I don't think it was ever fielded though.

It was supposed to carry lots of machine guns.

And now moving inside.

For completion's sake, here is a Tesla at a charging pod in Moscow recently.

I am not into, and not a fan of, e-vehicles in general and specifically not into, or a fan of, of Musky's Teslas, so I won't ID it other than saying that it is a Tesla.

By way of a bonus, here is some photography from walking the adjacent streets in Moscow in October of 2021 with some text in English.

Old Style Trailer Home

Here is an old style trailer home which are known here in Russia as wagon homes and were and are used for industrial purposes especially to provide temporary accommodation to shift workers at some distant locations like in the north, etc.

 Autumn landscape.

The interior has been trashed, what do you expect, it is decades old.
