Giant Mechs Did Not Help Socialists In Russian Revolution



Students taking the Victorian Curriculum Exam (VCE) may have been surprised to see a giant MechWarrior in a painting by Nikolai Kochergin entitled, “Storming the Winter Palace.”

The exam, which was sat by almost 6000 students, featured a doctored version of the artwork, in which a large robot – rather like BattleTech Marauder – appeared in the background of the artwork depicting events during the Russian Revolution.

It appears, even after careful examination, that this robot was not part of the painting and no extra-terrestrial assistance had been provided at the famous event.
