Military Maneuvers At Night in Russia

More than 8,000 personnel have taken part in the life-like “Caucasus 2009” military drills, which took place in Russia’s south to test troop readiness in combating terrorism and maintaining regional security.Thousands of troops were backed by hundreds of tanks rumbling through the North Caucasus. The military says the location wasn’t picked at random. The area has all sorts of terrain, ranging from seashore and plains to high mountains, but the main reason for holding the exercise in this particular part of the country is due to the potential threat of terrorism.
Amazing pictures.Looks like Star Wars.
