    2016 WWII Victory Day Celebrations (50)

    Huge images of sophisticated Russian tanks will appear on the facades of apartment buildings in a number of major Russian cities in the run-up to celebrations dedicated to the Allies' victory over Nazi Germany in the Second World War.

    On May 2, 15-meter posters featuring advanced Russian tanks will be placed on the facades of apartment buildings throughout several of the country's largest cities, including the capital Moscow, Nizhny Tagil, Nizhny Novgorod, Omsk, Chelyabinsk and Yekaterinburg, according to Ria Novosti.

    These cities' firms and factories are responsible for having designed and produced the most advanced types of Russian armored vehicles over the past fifty years, including tanks such as the T-14 Armata, the T-90MS, the T-80 and the T-72, as well as the self-propelled howitzers Koalitsiya-SV and Msta-S.
