    Some recycling of pics here? Overall, a good post. interesting photos. These guys don’t look very hard corp. Having been to several USMC bases, these guy look soft compared to American Marines. Are Russian Marines less elite? I don’t recall them playing a huge roll in soviet doctrine. Are they still an after thought?

      Haha when I compare the screaming US Marines in fight videos to the relaxed soldiers durin fights in chechnya I know who is harder.

      Conscripts maybe? Kalimba has a point. In a volunteer military where the members have a financial incentive to be participating, you would generally expect more enthusiasm.

      Still, looks like range training where they go through the course in a rote manner. Also, young kids and older equipment (steel pots) makes it look like they are probably boot camp trainees doing their advanced infantry training.

    No eye protection, no ear protection, no gloves, being in the army must be a desirable position.

    Looks like a WWII reenactment.

      Yes, it’s almost like they were photos taken years ago. They’re great photographs, thank you for sharing them.
