    Pretty cool toys. It didn’t look like a very big deployement. Maybe only a few platoons. I wonder how many can actually be fielded.

    Thats it?
    No self hating, anti-Russian venom about how “poor” they are? “Tough Conditions”? “Bad equipment” or even bad weather? I guess PMS is still far away and spring has reached even the remote parts of your dungeon. In that case, keep up the good work girls!

      I’m surprised too :)
      B.t.w are this marines coscripts or well paid volunteers ? I’ve heard there are some “professional” units in Russian army now.

      • Babysitter says:

        These are conscripts. Right now about 20% of Russian army are volunteers with plans to increase to 40% by 2014. Air forces, air defense, missile forces and full-time alert brigades are now 100% professional.

    Russian soldiers seems always relaxed, live prepared them for war

    Yet more squaddies with finger on trigger third to last photo, and one chap attempting to shoot one rifle while holding a second, (put one down) not only that he hasn’t even pulled the butt into his shoulder, impossible to be on target like that, and, if it was a 303 instead of the modern pea shooters it would break his shoulder.

    • theguy says:

      You’re trying to teach a soldier how to shoot? Have ever shot AK74 yourself? It practically has very low recoil.

      • testicules says:

        Marksmenship is universal. Anyone can send rounds down a range. A marksmen hits his target. Bad form never hits, AK or not.

    Big sky country. I’d go awol and hike to the horizon.

    Forget the militarism. I’m doing some carefree cloudspotting.

  11. tsurugu1 says:

    This small tanks, not BTR-s. What are they ?

  12. ohyeah says:

    What are those things on the ends of guns? Is it for blowing off your face in case you accidentally use live ammo during training?

    • Babysitter says:

      These caps are needed for practice ammo to trigger rifle auto-reloading mechanism. Without these you’d have to reload manually after every practice shot.
