  2. Are these stills from Red Dawn? Was looking for Patrick Swayze!
     
  3. Russian mentality mate. All former soviet transports were built with WW3 in mind, hence the tail gunner posit in the IL76. Of course its just us still fighting the cold war............

  5. Yeah, I imagine it would be more of a ground defense than anti-fighter measure.
