    The Russian military is gearing up for Victory Day parade, which will take place on Moscow’s Red Square on May 9, 2017. Troops practiced shooting fireworks from 72 replicas of the Soviet M1942 guns during a rehearsal conducted on April 18 at the Alabino training ground in Moscow Region.

    The number of artillery pieces used during the parade will symbolically honor the 72nd anniversary of the Soviet Union's victory over Nazi Germany during the World War II. During the Victory Day parade ceremony, the M1942 guns will be stationed at 16 sites throughout the capital and are set to fire 10,000 times in 10 minutes.
