Museum of military equipment Battle Glory of the Urals. Artillery and armored vehicles

To imagine that you are a visitor paleontological museum and cocked her head enthusiastically go between the giant Diplodocus and other pterosaurs. And then you say — they say I'm sorry, but it's time to feed the animals. Hung a sign "Lunch" and exhibits with uterine rumbling running away to the backyard hrumkat your carrot. Something like that I have experienced and when asked the caretaker of the museum "Battle Glory of the Urals" the reason for the large number of empty pedestals and the lack of exhibits themselves.
As this is where — looked at me with undisguised surprise — they went to the parade!
And here is the video marshbroska from the museum. 

Well, that does not leave everything and we have a great opportunity to learn about what constitutes a "military glory of the Urals." Many of the exhibits were made, in the literal sense of the word, a nearby fence.
Let's start with artillery series.
