Moscow SWAT was giving demos the other day in Strogino. It was quite a spectacular performance!
good photo`s. not swooning though!
If that was the SAS, they’d be in & out without you ever knowing they were there.
Yeah, where’s the kangaroos mate??? hahahahahahahaha. I saw a photo of somebody there selling those shirts and about fell out of my chair laughing so hard.
AUSTRIAN not AUSTRALIAN !!!!
Dear God what is so complicate about these two words….
I knew that the Americans are not able to distiguish us but hearing this from a Russian quite hurts.
Swiss cheese? Like from actual Sweden?
They all look like malnurished, vodka soaked, soldiers. Not one of them had a really good cop mustache. No mirrored shades either. They’re wannabes.
Mate! First of all there is a big difference between Spetsnaz and OMON (The guys in the pictures) .. Second thats not a tank it’s a BTR, they don’t shoot from it unless absolutely needed, it’s used to cover from explosions and bullets. Grenades? I am sure the explosions weren’t grenades only saturate charges to blow out the window bars. You said “USA SWAT is ripped” … hmmmm thats gonna stop a bullet from a AK or shrapnel from a nade. When it comes down to the real thing its who has the best training and the better accuracy. Russian Armed Forces will rock anyones dome!
hut hut hut hut hut…
just wanted to write exactly the same, too …
I do like the russian cops/military to a certain degree. They don’t screw around. In America, we’re so tied in knots with political correctness, it’s gonna destroy us.
Man, how did it come to pass, that a very small minority, totally control the much larger majority???
I’d do that cook.
Great pictures, too bad there isn’t any video
Professionals… :/ What about Bieslan or Dubrovka?
Hand to Hand combat 1st picture… guy in front looks like hes a move ahead or behind the rest of the squad.
Isn’t a grenade launcher on a tripod a little extreme for SWAT operations? I forgot Russian hostages like a little shrapnel inside them as a reminder of the experience.
Fistly this is for OMON forces. Their role is not that of a US SWAT force, but more counter-terrorist and anti-organised crime. Probably the closest equivalent in Western Police forces are the British SO19 armed response forces. Don’t forget that very nearly every Russian male has had many years military service – and that includes the bad-guys. Military grade weapons are all over the place.
Terrorist attacks by military and paramilitary forces occur every few months somewhere in Russia – and I’m not talking ‘underwear bomber’ terrorists that only manage to singe themselves, but real terrorists that kill and maim dozens. Professionally trained and armed people that are every bit as nasty as Hezbolla and the PLF in Lebanon and Israel in the 90s, the IRA in Norther Ireland in the 70s and 80s, the Taliban in Afganistan now.
The Grenade launcher can send in flash-bang and tear-gas grenades through windows to stun their targets prior to an assault. This can be the difference between a blood bath and no casualties.
OMON also needs to know how to use and the capabilites of weapons like this – so they know how to react when the bad guys use them. Which they do.
not bad, not bad.. pretty cool post!
Great pics! More posts like this please.
I sure hope they give them boys more training cause they could not protect a ants 6 or there own .
Is this a cartoon, a new reality show, or just conscripts trying to get a date with Angelina Croft???
This is not SWAT !
SWAT is suppoded to ride in an UPS truck instead of BTR and yell “..Go, Go, Go… !!!!”
And who are you? ZaMKADovskoye bidlo?
GLOCK IS FROM AUSTRIA, NOT AUSTRALIA!
