    Why are these Russians looking so much like American soldiers?

    • vorontsevich (f/k/a ayaa) says:

      Whats so American about them? Russian helmets, mostly Russian vests and gear (apart from the tacticool attachments).

      • jeebs says:

        He’s right the digital camo the soft covers the optics and illumination on the rifles the load out vests the knee pads just to name a few. The eye ware company Oakley introduced impact resistance sun glasses so other country’s borrowed that idea but the bigest one would be the baseball cap. But realistically I look at these solders I see Swedish, British, Canadian, Dutch, American, Spanish, French, German, Russian, Norwegian. Basically when someone invents a good idea other people will use or copy it why because it’s a good idea that’s all

        • vorontsevich (f/k/a ayaa) says:

          So basically everyone else copied digital camo from us, simply because we were the first to use full digital camo.

          • Jeebs says:

            Actually if you must know my county indented digital camo but I first saw American troops wearing it sorry about me misleading you. Now vorontsevich how are things back home good I hope

            • vorontsevich (f/k/a ayaa) says:

              Whats your country again?

              The Soviet Army was the first to issue full digital camo, on the KLMK (used by GRU), in the 1980’s. I mean full digital camo, not just boxy shapes painted on.

              Things are great over here, for me.

      • aj says:

        how about the fact that they are wearing multicam which Americans first started using.

        • vorontsevich says:

          Lol.

          Hey, genius, thats not Multi-cam. Thats SURPAT. A unique design by a RUSSIAN company. So, what exactly does Americans using multi-cam first have anything to do with it?!

        • vorontsevich says:

          Lol.

    all soldiers look similar!

  3. -Zlodey- says:

    This is real Spetsnaz and other combat group specialists, who hunt down terrorists. In Chechnya, for example.
    They can have any custom guns and equipment they want.

  4. cro says:

    They look mean with black AKs, only thing that puzzles me is a number of different uniforms in Russian army, how do they know who is friendly and who is enemey?

    • vorontsevich (f/k/a ayaa) says:

      How many other people would wear Russian camo and carry around full combat gear?

    • MegaByte says:

      By the color of the skin, that’s how!

    • Mike Talino says:

      It’s not regular army.
      It’s a training session for various Russian special forces and allies so you would see not only Russian troops there.
      Army wears dark greed digital camo like those guys in signal vests.

  5. D. Bunker says:

    Why are they shooting women in tubs?

  6. Osip says:

    So, who was the winner…the best shooter or the one who had the most ridiculous rifle?

  7. Tovarich Volk says:

    Waffen SS Autumn Camo patterns on the uniforms of the guys on the left hand side in pics #6 and #15.

  8. Major Ed says:

    If you don’t know what you’re talking about, everything looks the same, I guess. The Flag is Ukranian Ground Forces, no? I saw Russian Army Spetsnaz, VDV Spetsnaz, Polish Special Operations GROM, MVD-OMON, MVS-BERKUT – those last two are actually, in American terms, Police SWAT teams, not actually military, and some other folks that I wasn’t sure of…and, as one person above note, “form follows function” They use knee pads and single point slings because it makes sense, as do polycarbonate stocks…and they wear “Russian camo” because the foilage of Russia has brighter colors than that of North America or even Europe.

    • vorontsevich (f/k/a ayaa) says:

      Thats not Ukrainian flag. There are no forces from outside Russia here, and certainly not GROM.

      Both Russia and North America are HUGE, with vast differences in terrain.

      • aj says:

        ‘certainly not GROM’
        Than why does it show a picture of a guy wearing a patch that says GROM?

        • vorontsevich says:

          Well. Aren’t you another one of these know-it-all roaming around here.

          Thats not Polish GROM. Thats the 33rd MVD VV group, nicknamed Grom.

          Next time, don’t talk about things you don’t really understand.

    There doesn’t seem to be any standardization in the camo or the weapons…

    Must be a nightmare for the supply folks, although, these are specialists, so some leeway is to be expected.

  10. Zapadnyi says:

    They look rather “amerikanskyi”. Perhaps better the old K.A. Perhaps better other times, ages ago…

  11. OldBikr says:

    I must point out these men are from different outfits and they have different uniform requirements, so they have a lot of different uniforms. They were sent from many units to compete after all.

    However, I do see a lot of web gear, ammo pouches, vests, and other tactical gear of US origin in use here. The skull and cross bones patch on the center of one set of gear is probably more often associated with the US Navy Seals.

    These guys looks like airsofters until they shoot their rifle.
