On 20th February the Governor of one Russian region was visiting the 39th Russian Rocket Regiment. The press was coming along with a governor and so did Nikolay, the photographer. Now, thanks to Nikolay we can see what’s inside the closed and secured doors of Russian rocket regiment. The story is inside:
“After we arrived we went to the barracks”, said Nik.
They had inside a display of contemporary uniforms and private belongings of the soldiers of the rocket forces.
The AKC74 gun with a tube.
A hand machine gun RPK74
A hand grenade launcher RPG-7B.
Snipers Dragunov gun and a Simonov rifle.
The soldiers sleep on bunked beds inside the barracks.
There should be lot of cleaning done before governor’s arrival.
The army skis.
The study classroom.
And now the governor has arrived to check what they got on display for him.
The colonel tells the governor that their main armaments in this regiment are medium range ground based mobile missiles. Like this SS-20 “Pioneer”
The soldiers dressed in the new uniform. Look like mannequins but those are real people.
See – he blinked.
The average salary is around 38,000 roubles a month which is roughly $700. Before last year russian currency drop it was $1400.
Why do the officials where those similar black leather coats? Is it their turn to show the uniforms to soldiers?
You see those two guys on the right? These is a display of new Russian army sports uniform.
Nikolas says that the guard was standing all the time there without moving.
This is a safe room to store guns.
When the governor has left the atmosphere became more relaxed says the blogger. So they asked the soldiers to pose with the guns.
Look at this optic sight!
The girl is also a soldier in this regiment. She is a mechanic-telephonist.
Outside a few BTRs were on display.
This time they didn’t showed off the missiles themselves.
And this is a cafeteria for the soldiers.
With the samples of the meals soldiers do get. This is a “BREAKFAST” sample table. Raviolli, bread, coffee, milk, candies, butter, one egg.
And a “LUNCH” table. Lunch gives guys a choice out of a few menu options. Borsh, potatoes, KASHA, macaroni, soups etc etc.
And this is a dinner.
And looks like we got a cook here!
The conveyor for the food.
And a salad bar with pickles etc.
Hope you liked this little trip!
Great thanks to Nik! Here is his sight:
