American artist turned Russian fighters into fantastic monsters

Human fantasy truly knows no boundaries. This is what comes to mind when you look at the drawings of Alice Bruderer, the famous American artist. In her imagination, military equipment - modern and from the distant past - is associated with mysterious, fantastic monsters from cartoons.

So the pride of our Russian aviation MiG-23, Su-33, Su-34 and the promising "Berkut" - Su-47 with a forward sweep somewhat resemble predatory prehistoric pterodactyls with clawed paws instead of a landing gear.

The famous Il-2 attack aircraft appears before us as a winged dragon dancing. Alice did not pass our tanks either. She associates the pre-war five-turret T-35 with a six-fingered brontosaurus, instead of whose heads are "flaunt" heavy guns.

This fantastic art gallery has a place for American, British and German tanks, planes and submarines with no less eerie appearance. And yet it is worth giving it its due: we have before us a masterful performance and an irrepressible flight of fantasy.
