We are going to spend some time with an odinary regiment of Belarus and see how they conduct live firing, survive in cold and much more.
Is this reserve training or active troops?
Reserve, like the US National Guard.
Whatever westernised lazy brats think, you dont win a war with fancy and expensive looks of equipment. If something work, it works and these determined people have a history of winning wars, just ask the Germans. The €Urofags (Germany again) will go the same way..
In a conventional war, such as with the men shown here, the USA would win in an instant. Just ask the Iraqis from the gulf war.
A history of winning wars, like the Crimean War, the Russian-Japanese war, the First World War, the Polish-Soviet War, the Afghan war, the First Chechen war…
Well the Circassians were annihilated, the Poles were annihilated, the Afghans were reduced to the state they have now. The Japanese never made head way onto the continent. And West Europe is still terrified of the Rus. War is attrition, population decimation sand cultural domination.
…..I wouldn’t say we’ve exactly won our Afghan War either. And they States have lost their fair share of wars. Much like how Russia has won their fair share.
Equipment in poor condition. Low level of readiness and training. Poor field living conditions. All in all, makes it pretty rough for these troops.
in america you go to the gun range. in east block you go to the missile range. in England we go to Ikea.
Ikea! I go for the Swedish meatballs.
YEAH! The real workHORSE!
I wouldn’t, they certainly have their fair share of Romanian horsemeat…
@ hoo, Germany lost for many reasons. War on multiple fronts, lack of supplies, and most of all, that Russian Winter.
Had the war been one on one with the Soviet Union, I’m sure the outcome may have been different.
Not sure what country you hail from, but I’m sure of one thing, your education level is suspect.
Have a nice day,
Adolf Skroatler von Baggenstein
( all around good guy, really. )
Show us YOUR education level: EXPLAIN HOW IT WAS MOST OF ALL THE RUSSIAN WINTER THAT CAUSED THE GERMAN DEFEAT.
I pretty sure you’re not up to it.
These people are reservists, not regular army. Should’ve mentioned this somewhere in article.
I think the age gave it away there. And the fact they seem to be camping with missiles.
Sehr Geehrte Adolf. Equally, the outcome of the 1939 invasion on Poland by your otherwise beautiful and lovely country could be different if the Soviets didn’t promise another Adolf to stab Poland in the back.
Appart from that, the army shown above is so modern that it is capable to inflict a damage only when dealing with the defenceless opponents of Lukashenko’s regime
Lukashenko is an a-hole and somewhat of a fool but the his opponents are tools of the West.
They mention not looking foolish, so they need a proper fitting uniform. Gee, the last thing I want to look is “foolish” when I go to war. At least I want a cool looking uniform.
either we have been killing each other since the beginning or some idiot thought it would be easier to shoot someone than to let all live in peace. OK there will be fights of course but why do we insist on killing each other.
Interesting, but in a world of drones, both airborne and land based, just how many human soldiers are useful? Drones may be stupid and radio dependent today. They will be neither in a decade. I think these are the last trained soldiers for a while.
Look, don’t EVER underestimate what could be your potential “enemy”. Regardless of the obsolete equipment and breakdowns, these guys are TOUGH. There is simply no disputing that or I would have to call YOUR education level “suspect”. And, where you have tough, creative, and resilient soldiers is where you have one hell of a fight on your hands. Yes, the USA would more than likely beat these guys, and soundly. However, it would NOT be EASY. Just look at the problems in Afghanistan. We are so superior to them that it’s like a few cavemen fighting a Roman Legion. Yet, it’s been 10 years and they are STILL mounting a SERIOUS defense. The biggest mistake you can make is to underestimate your opponent. Yes, our technology is infinitely superior to theirs. But, high technology is very subject to breakdowns and other failures. These guys function on a brute force level, practically. You’d better PRAY that you’re not broken down somewhere that these guys can find you because they WILL find you and they WILL FIGHT YOU! I have a LOT of respect for them because of the conditions that they put up with and live with every single day. This makes them INCREDIBLY tough and resilient. I hope, for your sake, that this is a lesson you don’t ever have to learn the hard way. Always respect your opponent even if you hate him because in the end he could very well surprise you.
good to see the soviet army alive and well, playing with top notch toys from the 1960s-70s.
And great outing in the woods too, but where is the Drujba chainsaw?!
