Today was Victory Day, the day that Russia celebrates the victory over Nazi Germany in 1945. Here in Moscow, it's celebrated with a parade of a very impressive caravan of military weapons. Since this was the 65th anniversary of the victory, the parade included even more vehicles than ever before. I don't know for sure what this one is, but it was HUGE. It was really awesome to be able to see it up close!
p.s. - the banner says 'Happy Victory Day'. Translated directly from Russian it's actually "With Victory Day" - in Russian "with" is typically used the way that "happy" is used in English.
