Only The Fittest Will Survive

Only The Fittest Will Survive

The red beret is the pride of each special squad soldier. They treat it as a decoration for their services in battle. Not everybody is strong enough and has enough endurance to pass a test to receive it. Usually, they have to make 5-6 tries to deserve a red beret and those who manage to do it in one try are considered true heroes.

Below are some photographs of a special squad unit taking a test for the red beret in the Krasnodar Territory.

      • It’s a form of punishment. One red beret grabs your right arm in a choke, the other your left arm, another holds your legs while one chokes your head. It’s excruciating, and you are supposed to hold out for thirty seconds without tapping out.

        The thirty seconds in “heaven” is just crude sarcasm.

  1. “Usually, they have to make 5-6
    tries to deserve a red beret and those who manage to do it in one try are considered true heroes.”

    Well thats wrong. Only one out of every seven or eight spetsnaz candidates finish the course and get the red beret. Less than half of those that fail ever return.

  2. It should be noted that if russian army soldier is offered a medal or red beret tryout he will most likely always choose a tryout.
    Also they only get the beret if your AK still shoots a shot after the tryout.
