    It’s not an ‘ordinary’ brigade, but a special mountain (highland) one. That’s why they are climbing walls and using horses.

    Looks like fun!

    Interesting, but underwhelming.

    Lots of military posts these days. Brings back memories.

    Horses? Guess the ghost of Marshal Budyonny is riding with them.

    These look like the reconnaisance brigade (not so ordinary), reco patroling to gather info without the enemy noticing theyr presence.
    I think they are also some kind mountain adapted scout brigade, climb exercises and horse riding…
    Never uderestimate a horse, they go where no machine can go.
    It reminds me of my military time, altrough I really sucked at wall klimbing lol, but i was a good thinker/driver in compensation :)

    I found interesting info about the 34th reconnaissance brigade and other nice videos.


    Dear english russia maybe the title must be changed from motorized brigade to reconnaissance battalion.

    Stone aged equipment.

    These quipment seems to be very very tough. Love military-grade equipment, looks indestructible. Russian equipment are no fancy.

    These must be mountain troops. Only they would use horses. Those are well-=trained horses too! Untrained horses would never remain calm during gunfire and would never walk through smoke. Horses see smoke as a solid object.
    Horses were used in large numbers by the Red Army during WWII.
