    • Careful, you’ll get historians panties all in a knot.

      Besides, despite/contrary the story about the dude who moves to Moscow and becomes a tranny and the other posts about gays in Russia, homosexuality doesn’t exsist in Russia!

  1. Very cool display. It would have been neat to be there. However, a few points that would not have passed muster in the US.
    #1 The Rusty AKs the divers were marching with would have to be polished up.
    #2 The graphitti wall behind the tank parade would have to be freshly painted.
    #3 The bloused trousers would be afixed to the boots so they wouldn’t rise up
    #4 The face paint would have been more effective.

    Over all though a cool display.

    • true enough, my friend. Unfortunately, in the military, and especially those commanded & ruled by the soviet-style mentallity superiors, the “estethical and cosmectics” part come all the way at the end…

  2. Camouflage only works to a small degree. Take a look at the millions that the United States took to digitalize a pattern for the U.S. Army. It’s more modern and it cost millions but most soldiers find it not to work in Desert, Urban, Mountainous environs.

    The uniform doesn’t make the soldier, it’s the training, the equipment and the willigness. Perfect example of the latter while the former is not necessairly true is the Soviet Shock Army during the Second World War. While for the most part training was not on par of the Wehrmacht or any of the Allied Armies. Equipment, especially after the Soviet victory in Stalingrad and the heart of the Soviet trooper was enough to drive the German invaders from the borders of the U.S.S.R. all the way to Berlin.

    While at the same time, in the Soviet War in Afghanistan, all the right training and even good equipment couldn’t stop the spread of the Mujahedeen.

    • man, i understand what do you mean. You are talking of some undeniable “facts” that happened decades ago. But, actually the USMC and many others US & NATO combat units has adopted a much better design of their uniforms, for your info, here are some links:

      multicam or traditinal pattern camo uniform, still, the US/Nato combat uniforms are interesting:

  3. Very Impressive! What an excellent public relations and recruiting tool this must be.

    Question: Where does the Russian fondness for really large officer hats come from? They don’t look terribly practical, and make the man look kind of small in comparison…
