Russian troops at wold war 2

I always like looking at such photos. Vintage chronicles of world war 2 are especially interesting to watch, how people looked like how things looked like - all that emotions etc.

This is another previously not seen here part of World War 2 photos and some of them are in color.

      It`s begin of WWII. Red Army had no modern weapons at that time. In warehouses was many ancient but still working Maxims.

        I’m missing the pictures of WWII when soviet and nazi officers are shaking hands after 1939 Sep 17 Poland invasion. Are all of such pictures made unavailable in RU already or they just do not fit into current political setup? :)
        Greetz to all normal RU citizens.

        • Ru citizens says:

          Nobody in Russian give a f@ck about some photo and Poland invasion! Nobody cares about such country like Poland. Poland=garbage!

    • Adan says:

      Maxim’s machinegun was main machinegun in Soviet Army. Second one was Degtyarov’s machinegun.

    Guess that pic. 34 is some early equipment for positioneering of enemy ariplanes (guess one get a virtual centerpoint on the plane by listening efter the engine sound before the modern radar existed)

    Cool! Isn’t there a possibility of having them in larger size?

  21. buy jeans says:

    cool photo with machinegun ’42

  22. Antek says:

    Sad thing is that probably all of those people have been killed – and we did not even know their names nor want to know it. This is all over the same: during war people kill each other for glory, for peace (!!??) and to be remembered for ever. Who of you know one name of the soldier killed in WW2? I do not know any… There were a lot of stories what soviet army did wrong during WW2 with the German people – but first – it was revenge, second – some stories may be exagerrated. My grand mother (now 86) lives near Cracov – starting from ca. 1945 (January) -in her home, a military field hospital was established. I never heared her saying something wrong about soviet soldiers except they suffer a lot… (at the time she was 20 years old)
    Regards from Poland!
