The idea of the popular vote suggested that Russian President Vladimir Putin, when he said in his address to the Federal Assembly about the novelties of the Russian defense industry. Now the military holds the final voting stage in which Internet users choose their own version of the fifty most popular suggestions.

Just the site of the military Department have visited more than 870 thousand users, of which about one third were foreign nationals. Netizens have offered more than 245 thousand of his options “names” for weapons. For example, the three most popular names for cruise missiles of unlimited range — the Shocker, Palmyra and Stalin. In the top ten as well — Padded, Zeus, the Fox and the donkey.

Unmanned underwater vehicle that can be equipped with both conventional and nuclear weapons offer “christen” IDE, the Kraken and Poseidon. Users also like the name — Whisperer, Nesmeyana, Water and the Abyss. In names for a fighting laser complex the lead — Bunny, the Wii, the dragon and the Ophthalmologist. “On the heels” they come Beam, Cyclops, Basilisk and fly Swatter. I must say that many of the names which took the lead in very unexpected and not quite academic, so the defense Ministry will have to make a difficult choice.
