The Mosin-Nagant Rifle, 5th Edition (For collectors only)
Although the Mosin-Nagant rifle was in use for more than sixty years by half the world's military forces, no book in the English language has ever traced its development and identified all its models and variations as manufactured around the world, including in the United States. No provided the part-by-part information needed by the collector and shooter.77% (16)
This is the first book in English, ever written about the Mosin-Nagant. It identifies every single model manufactured in Russia, France, the United States, Poland, Romania, Hungary, Finland, China and North Korea. Every part is described with all changes and markings, making it possible to identify the national origins of not only the rifle as a whole, but of every part.
Chapters provide a history of its development and use from 1892 to its last manufacture in Hungary and China in the mid-1950s. Then each part is analyzed showing all changes in chronological order. All variations are described from the original rifle to the M1944 carbine with its unique folding bayonet. All Finnish variations are described and a history of the tiny country's relations with its giant next door neighbor is included to show the derivation of Finland's line of Mosin-Nagants.
Sniper rifles from all countries are listed in a separate chapter as is the ammunition produced for the rifle and all accessories issued to the combat soldier. Of great value to the collector is the huge list of markings and codes found on all Mosin-Nagant rifles of whatever national origin, the first ever compiled.
The Mosin-Nagant was one of the earliest small-caliber battle rifles developed in the late 19th century. Its rugged design and construction are borne out by the fact that the only changes ever made to its basic design were to shorten and lighten the rifle as ammunition improved and battle conditions changed. The Mosin-Nagant is without doubt, one of the premier battles rifles of the late 19th and early 20th century and a testament to skill of it Russian designer.
Chinese Aircraft-Carrier at Dalian Shipyard(ex. Varyag)
I got these photos from google map linked directly from wikipedia, it seems like the ship is getting close to completion, latest photos I found on the internet recently shows structure of the island has been modified to it's final form and is now all painted. A Sea Eagle volume search radar installed on top of the island. APAR like the one on 052C on Varyag was believe to be installed as well. The upper photo showing the ship out of dry dock with the painted bridge, possibiliy taken The older google satellite photo below possibly taken before March 2010 showing Varyay in dry dock being installing with engines and other heavy equipment ??????????????????????! From wikipedia: Since 1985, China has acquired four retired aircraft carriers for study: the Australian HMAS Melbourne and the ex-Soviet carriers Minsk, Kiev and Varyag. Reports state that two 50,000-60,000 ton aircraft carriers are due to be finished by 2015. The 67,500 ton ex-Soviet aircraft carrier Varyag (Admiral Kuznetsov class), which was only 70% completed and floating in Ukraine, was purchased through a private Macau tourist venture in 1998. Since her troublesome tow to Dalian shipyard, the carrier has undergone a long refit. Varyag was stripped of any military equipment as well as her propulsion before she was put up for sale. News reports state that she is being refitted to be returned to operational status. Using knowledge gained from inspecting carriers, an indigenous design may emerge with both Russian and Western influences. China has shipyards that are capable of building a ship of such tonnage and size. In 2009, at the Wuhan Naval Research facilities (near the Huangjia Lake in the southwestern suburbs of Wuhan), the PLAN constructed a full scale logistics and training deck and island mockup of the Varyag.Varyag under tow in 2001
The 67,500 ton ex-Soviet aircraft carrier Varyag (Admiral Kuznetsov class), which was only 70% completed and floating in Ukraine, was purchased through a private Macau tourist venture in 1998. Since her troublesome tow to Dalian shipyard, the carrier has undergone a long refit. Varyag was stripped of any military equipment as well as her propulsion before she was put up for sale. Today she is being refitted to be returned to operational status. Analysts believe that the PLAN will use Varyag as a training platform for carrier take-offs and landings. The progress of refitting is significant, it is believed that the hull works have been completed. Installation of electronics and weapons are now in progress. Using knowledge gained from inspecting carriers, an indigenous design may emerge with both Russian and Western influences. China has shipyards that are capable of building a ship of such tonnage and size. In August, 2008, the speaker of the Commission of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense announced to the public at news conference that China had mastered all of the technologies for an aircraft carrier, and would build aircraft carriers in the future when time was deemed right. It was also reported in 2009 that the Brazilian Navy will train PLA naval officers in carrier operations in exchange for assistance on nuclear submarine technology and additional funding.
