Russia To Revive Soviet-Era Armored Trains As $400B Military Modernization Continues

The Russian military has begun reviving its old Soviet-era armored trains, a Czech Republic newspaper reported Friday. The revelation, which was hinted at earlier this month when the Russian minister of defense said that four of the armored trains could be recommissioned, is part of Russia’s $400 billion project to modernize and expand its military.

“Russian intentions indicate that in addition to introducing a number of revolutionary new technologies, now comes something of a ‘Renaissance’ of some (supposedly) obsolete categories of military equipment,” the Czech website Echo24.cz wrote.
