The US government is an excellent source of images you can use without copyright worries. It
is considered good manners to give credit where it’s due, and mention the folks who did the
work. See the specific copyright information on each site for more details.

Как говорил мой бывший начальник, -- чего мне нравится в Америке, так это попадаешь туда, как в родной СССР.

Он там С-300 в ИТМВТ разрабатывал и на работе ночевал, так, что у него про СССР специфические воспоминания.

Уезжал в 90-е и вернулся, хотя думали, что там и останется.
Нет, американские НИИ от советских, видимо, не так сильно отличаются. Он прав.
