Train Spotting Question

#1
Are the Russians still spending on tactical battlefield weapons development? Are there new vehicles, SAMs, etc. appearing or is military development not such a big thing these days?
 
#2
I don't know about the Russkies but how about this for train spotting

I think starting a new thread with the topic title "New russian military hardwear" or something like that would be a good idea.

That's a Deltic, isn't it?

Wonder why the design never caught on?

Didn't Deltic and the Cheiftan tank have the same engine?

from what I understand , most trains use Marine diesel egnines, I remember walking inside the engine compartment of a few Trains and they are massive and very cramped inside.

no Deltec type engine, just the normal inline cylinders or V formation.

Didn't they use it in Motor Torpedo Boats or summtink :?
