At http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f5/S-300PMU2_complex.jpg, a very good photo of the flag of the Almaz-Antei weapons company

Named after the Russian words for "diamond" and the Titan Antaeus. Text reads "KOHЦEPH ПBO / AЛMAЗ-AHTEЙ" or "KONTSERN PVO / ALMAZ-ANTEI". PVO stands for "Protivo-Vozdushnaya Oborona," or "anti-aircraft defense;" the hardware being pimped in the photo is a SAM system.

note the little national tricolor used as antenna flag (at 1st glance looks like a big flag on a distant, tall pole), and the Air Force flag at the right side of the truck (with national tricolor at left?).
