So the Russian Ministry of Defense is going to build a Cathedral of the Armed Forces at the Patriot Park in Kubinka, a town near Moscow which also hosts the country’s premier tank museum.
It is supposed to become a “spiritual and educational center for soldiers, Orthodox priests, and Russian citizens.”
I think Russia is really on the right track with this.
Russian Orthodoxy already has all of the aesthetic accoutrements to become our world’s version of the Adeptus Mechanicus, at last melding religious zeal and scientific rationalism into a single unity.
Atomic Orthodoxy: +25% splash damage on infidel cities; fallout lingers twice longer.
So the emergence of Fortress Monasteries is the next logical step:
A fortress-monastery is an enormous citadel where a Space Marine Chapter maintains its headquarters. Space Marine Chapters are highly monastic military organisations where the combatant members are all warrior-monks, and their fortress-monasteries are devoted both to battle and near-religious reverence for the Emperor of Mankind. Fortress-Monasteries are usually based on Imperial worlds important to the Chapter for recruiting purposes, or on deserted moons and asteroids.
It is better to die for the Emperor than to live for yourself!
