It's interesting that the Soviets kept putting Tail Gunner positions on their aircraft long after everyone else had stopped. Did they think they were going to be attacked by ME109s or P51s? The glazed nose for a Bombardier or maybe a Navigator also seems a bit out place on a "modern" aircraft. It makes wonder why they didn't add a ball turret and waist gunners as well.

It's day as a military freighter is on the wane, but you can still come across them at airports throghout Europe, Africa and Asia. It is always a delight in these "let's save the Earth times" to see the smokey Kuznetsov engines pushing this veteran into the sky.
