When the Stukas bomb the fortress we can see them releasing their bombs at a very low altitude, at 50 meters for the best. This is impossible: the minimal altitude of releasing a bomb was 450-500 meters, and the pilot couldn't even pull the bomber up from this low. Also the bombs would be visible for the eye as they are not falling faster than the plane that released them, but we see nothing, just an explosion on the ground. See more »
How the Great Patriotic War began: Bloody morning of 06.22.1941
This is definitely the best war movie shot in the ex-USSR in post-Soviet time. This is what that war was for our country and our people. The level of fiction and fantasy is minimal; the movie is shot as close to historical truth as possible. The Brest Fortress Museum supervised the plot thoroughly. The Brest Fortress became the place where the German invaders lost 5% of their East Front deadcount within the first week of war. Come have a look on how our granddads fought against the Nazis. There are no starship troopers in the movie; just real Red Army soldiers and a deadly mouse gray mass of German invaders that killed 20+ millions of our compatriots and brought to our country countless loss.
