To Be A Part Of Unusual Troops

It is not easy to be a soldier of the Radiation, Chemical, and Biological Protection Troops, especially in hot weather, as they have to accomplish both difficult and dangerous tasks.

It is believed that the Radiation, Chemical, and Biological Protection Troops were founded on November 13, 1918 when an order about creation of the Chemical Service of the Red Army was signed.

New tasks are recently accomplished by the troops and withstanding chemical and biological terrorism is one of them.

    Life in this unit must be soft and easy, judging by appearance of officer.

    What kind of gasmask is this ? PMK from 80/90’s ?
    I’m looking for a cheap reliable mask which isn’t too old. This seems to be still in use according to the pics, so it can’t be too bad.

      You don’t know what your talking about do you? Russian equipment have lifespans of twice their American or Nato equivalent.
      And the PMK is no longer used by the military, only osnaz units and militia units use newer versions.

  4. I would like to lodge a compalint.This article is a repeat.Somebody should inform the commanding officer of the guy in picture 29 that either he has inhaled too much toxic biological gas or he is shooting too much heroin.

    I had the same job during military service in the Belgian Army. Wearing such a rubber decontamination suit is terrible, certainly when it is hot.

    I’m not a fan of the russian army, but may I suggest those soldiers some improvement in their protection? The vision through split visors like those is not optimal, a wide continuous acrylic is better. Battery operated ventilators to force air through the filters, and placing the filters in a separate unit would really help, specially when running (you need more air). When the batteries die, respiration becomes a little heavier, like you experience in the equipment shown here. Also, the glove-sleeve and pants-boot junction need a special adhesive tape for better sealing. Don’t let your army under-budget your equipment at your life’s expense. With all my respect, a member of a non-alied army’s unconventional warfare division.
