Cemetery Military Equipment

Near Kabul is a cemetery of military equipment, an echo of the war in Afghanistan.
Kabul is the capital and largest city of Afghanistan, located in the Kabul Province.
It is an economic and cultural centre, situated 5,900 ft (1,800 m) above sea level in a narrow valley, wedged between the Hindu Kush mountains along the Kabul River.
Kabul is over 3,500 years old; many empires have long fought over the city for its strategic location along the trade routes of South and Central Asia. From 1504 to 1526, Kabul served as the original capital of Babur, builder of the Mughal Empire. It remained under the Delhi Sultanate until 1738, when Nader Shah and his Afsharid forces invaded the Mughal Empire. After the death of Nader Shah Afsharid in 1747, the city fell to Ahmad Shah Durrani, who quickly added it to his new Afghan Empire. In 1776, Timur Shah Durrani made it the capital of the modern state of Afghanistan. Since the 1980s Soviet war in Afghanistan, the city has been a target of militant groups. It is currently being re-developed but attacks by Taliban and other militants are slowing down the reconstruction process.
It is a pity that the pictures are not so much, but still look very interesting.

Ship Graveyard in Mauritania

The world’s largest ship graveyard can be found in the city of Nouadhibou that is the second largest city in Mauritania. It contains about 300 ships that are abandoned of course, or else it wouldn’t be a ship graveyard. The reason for these ships being here is because corrupt officials were bribed from boat owners to allow them to dump their boats in Nouadhibou.

This all started in the 80′s when the nationalization of of the Mauritanian fishing industry was over, and the left over ships were simply dumped at the harbour. This has caused problems in many ways, but finally the European Union is taking action and trying to re-float or destroy the abandoned wrecks.

The water around is so filthy that you can’t even imagine, luckily they are going to do something about it. In

It was a part of the Soviet Union or more precise a part of the political party USSR, and of course they where in a constant competition with USA when it came to space issues, and secretly it was built in 1950s. But then Kazakhstan became independent and now the spaceport is leased by the Russian Space Forces and the Russian Federal Space Agency.

Batmobile Golf Cart

Batman seems to be pretty active guy who also likes to play some golf when he is not occupied with chasing for Joker. But, when you are Batman then you have to keep your image and you cannot go to golf fields with usual golf cart. This one looks more like “Yo Dawg Golf Cart” and it absolutely goes with Batman’s fancy dress and costume. And, I am pretty sure that there is some super wild engine in there so, if Joker suddenly appears somewhere on golf fields, Batman is prepared to go after him.

Abandoned Soviet Airfield

In previous articles you have seen abandoned, rusty and old military base in Murmansk and abandoned complex of Russian Anti-missile defense system. Now there has been found something in Ukraine that seems to be an abandoned airfield. Russos, a known photo-blogger, was one night on his way to a destination in Ukraine, or Crimea, when he decided to place a tent outside on a field near a random Ukraine forest.

The next day he got surprised when he realized where he had spent the night; on an airfield no longer in use, so he took his camera and started capturing everything he saw. The look that the airfield gives is so powerful that it almost looks like the airplanes are ready to take off and go to war. Well, we can just hope that will never happen, and that it will stay abandoned.

USS Intrepid Made Out of Lego Bricks

Nowadays people built literally everything out of Lego, and the ideas are so many. Ed “Lego Monster” Diment has built 23 feet long USS Intrepid out of Lego bricks and it is built on a scale of 1:40. The real Intrepid was very much used and also important on a lot of battles on the Pacific during the World War II.

This great piece of art can be found in Swindon in United Kingdom on the Great Western Lego Show. The other Lego piece that you see on the pictures is a 7.66 meter long container ship. The masterpiece is built by a group of school children in Germany.  Lego is so popular these days that others have also used them to build several things, like for example the replica of Sleeping Beauty Castle from Disneyland.

Old and Huge Ships Abandoned in Russia

The old Soviet Union was known for its abandoned airfields, rusty old military bases and old theaters. Now they have discovered an abandoned frozen ships near Kamachatka in Russia. Of course it looks spooky, like an old war scene from a movie, but it has its charm, and there is something powerful but peaceful about them. They were probably used during some war, and now just forgotten in the snow. It is pointless to remove it, where would the huge ships go? Good for Russia that they have much space so it doesn’t conflict with anything.

Fiercest Super Yacht in the World

What a sleek-looking yacht! Adastra was born after five years of design and discussion between a Hong Kong couple and West Sussex-based John Shuttleworth Yacht Designs. Very experienced at voyaging the ocean, the couple wanted to create a trimaran that was designed for efficient long range cruising. The super yacht boasts a maximum speed of 22.5 knots and can cover 4000 miles at a range of 17 knots. It also provides a level of comfort and style that would be expected in a yacht of this class and size.

Every part of the boat is custom built to make it light weight. The superstructure is made of carbon fiber and the hull from Glass/Kevlar foam. The vessel has a fully automated fuel management system, including an Alfa Laval system that cleans the fuel for efficient performance.

A saloon area is located on the main deck, which offers superb panoramic views and accommodates a lounge area, dining table and navigation station. The master’s cabin is located toward the stern, while two guest cabins, and accommodation for the crew are located below the deck. Adastra offers comfortable accommodation for nine guests and up to six crew members.
