This blog is a second one from the visit to the Victory Square complex and its museum exposition.
I could post many more photos, but I do not want to overwhelm and over saturate this blog. Therefore, in this part, I will focus on artillery pieces mounted on rail chassis and the armored trains.
The museum has few amazing pieces, and one of them is the Russian build TM-1-180 railroad mounted 180-mm cannon.
The size of this artillery piece is amazing and in my opinion, you have to see it to believe it!
The next great piece is the armored train.
This type of train was used to transport valuable cargo or support troops from the railroad.
The Germans, after the initial success in invading the Soviet Union, very quickly learned that they cannot win the war. However, they attempted to prolong it as long as they could, hoping that peace could be made.
They used “track destroyers” to tear the tracks apart to slow the Russians down.
The museum nicely shows the destroyed bridge with wrecked railroad car.
Enjoy the rest of the photos! Cheers! 🙂
