Times have changed and Russian army is not the same any more. Let us look through the changes by the example of the 1st tactical operations brigade.
Apu Gupta here,
the tables of that cantina will look much better without those ugly soviet-grandma style tablecloths
Picky picky. But I think its because they are green like the uniforms………..looks like a nice place for a young soldier to stay though.
I absolutely NEED that washmachine! It looks like made in Mordor.
You can buy one here
But these laundromats are freakin expensive ($3k+)
new times, new equipment, old dumb faces and jail rules.
Wonder if a similar comms brigade in Siberia would have just as good facilities? Still, nice to see progress.
I promise you, those facilities are better than the ones I had when I was in the U.S. Army.
However, an Army is only as good as it’s leadership. The Russian Army needs professional NCOs and an ethical officer corp. It’s going to take a long time to get rid of eighty years of Communism.
What does Communism have to do with Russian officers?!!!
Should give us a close up of the stuff in the vending machine so we can see what Russian candy and smokes are like!
Not exactly, but there is a post where photos were made at a Russian candy factory. It’s a new post, only made in the recent few days.
Probably that place in good condition is only one.
I see twix, M and Ms, mars, bounty, opel fruits, snickers and nuts!! Typical euro stock:)
Russia has a difference doctrine, one of annihilation of the enemy period. No good will and/or country building, they are not there to tell them about Democracy.
The Russian military also has ‘no rules’ when it comes to combat. Hence the reason you see the icy cold stares, they are able to live under harsher conditions without crying about military service (like in the USA).
