      PhotoBucket are no longer permitting 3rd party hosting   01/07/17

      As most of you are now painfully aware, Photobucket (PB) are stopping/have stopped allowing their members to link their accumulated years of photos into forums and the like, which they call 3rd party linking.  You can give them a non-refundable $399 a year to allow links, but I doubt that many will be rushing to take them up on that offer.  If you've previously paid them for the Pro account, it looks like you've got until your renewal to find another place to host your files, but you too will be subject to this ban unless you fork over a lot of cash.   PB seem to be making a concerted move to another type of customer, having been the butt of much displeasure over the years of a constantly worsening user interface, sloth and advertising pop-ups, with the result that they clearly don't give a hoot about the free members anymore.  If you don't have web space included in your internet package, you need to start looking for another photo host, but choose carefully, as some may follow suit and ditch their "free" members at some point.  The lesson there is keep local backups on your hard drive of everything you upload, so you can walk away if the same thing happens.   There's a thread on the subject here, so please use that to curse them, look for solutions or generall grouse about their mental capacity.   Not a nice situation for the forum users that hosted all their photos there, and there will now be a host of useless threads that relied heavily on photos from PB, but as there's not much we can do other than petition for a more equitable solution, I suggest we make the best of what we have and move on.  One thing is for certain.  It won't win them any friends, but they may not care at this point.    Mike.

T-80U, this photo was taken a few months ago,during the big Russian mobilization.

Many so called experts were surprised, as they had all stated it was no longer in service with the Russian Army

1/72 and 1/35 kits are available of the T-80U.

The T-90 Russian MBT, The lens on the Shorta box should be purple black NOT RED.

When it's switched off, yes. When the Shtora is on it is very definitely orange red with a dark centre (which is what I think modellers are depicting):

In fact I suspect the lens itself may be clear and the elements behind it give it the darker colour, it's hard to tell:

Most of those pics are photoshopped. RED can be seen for miles, just does not make Tactical sense.

For modelers making their kits it's up to them. :bye:

Yes I have seen this video and only proves that RED can be seen for miles, this was a propaganda Video. If you look at the first tank with the lights on, there is nothing but a bulb in the shorta housing.

And I say For modelers making their kits it's up to them. Lets agree to disagree :bye:

Never mind what colour the Shtora is. Why is it made of Stickle Bricks?

From what research I've done over past couple of days it may be the case that they are electro-optic "dazzlers" that only shine red when a IR guided at round is heading for them, to jam it and break it's lock. So yes they wouldn't be on all the time but would just flash briefly as required. Still trying to research this further. The puzzling thing is IR should be invisible to eyes, however some IR bulbs do glow red. Hmmm...????

Just to throw in some further confusion, some cameras can 'see' IR light that is invisible to the human eye. Most modern digital cameras have IR filters to prevent this, but there are a number of ways of sidestepping this (or just use a camera that will see IR, they are available).
