  1. Some recycling of pics here? Overall, a good post. interesting photos. These guys don’t look very hard corp. Having been to several USMC bases, these guy look soft compared to American Marines. Are Russian Marines less elite? I don’t recall them playing a huge roll in soviet doctrine. Are they still an after thought?

    • Conscripts maybe? Kalimba has a point. In a volunteer military where the members have a financial incentive to be participating, you would generally expect more enthusiasm.

      Still, looks like range training where they go through the course in a rote manner. Also, young kids and older equipment (steel pots) makes it look like they are probably boot camp trainees doing their advanced infantry training.

    • Yes, it’s almost like they were photos taken years ago. They’re great photographs, thank you for sharing them.
