Rare Russian UAZ 469 with Anti-Tank Grenade Launcher Mounted

Just a few photos of this rare car. Well, the car itself – UAZ-469 is not rare and might be one of the most mass produced cars in USSR as they have been used (and are used still!) for police patrol vehicles and in Russian Army. However this particular model with anti-tank grenade launchers (SPG-9 model) are not so often to be seen, so here are a few photos:

A whole bunch of those while in Eastern Germany. Soviet Union was holding over 1,000,000 soldiers in Eastern Germany during the Cold War. So they had plenty of equipment there.

  1. Never knew that they had these. Propaganda photos of Soviet soldiers always showed them in tanks or APCs, and never looking so relaxed.

  2. I got to play with one of our M20 recoilless rifles mounted to a Jeep at our county fair many years back. No ammo, though. Too bad. 😉

  5. You can see not German troops (NVA) overall. Pictures 1 – 3 and 5 – 6 are Border troops of the GDR . Picture 3 shows with the license plate behind of the UAS 469 “GT” means “Grenztruppen”.
    Picture 4 is a parachute trooper in the NVA.
    It´s not a RPG 82 or a RG-82. It´s a SPG-9 (stankovyi protivotankvyi granatomat = anti-tank weapon) in 73 millimetre calibre. The “normal” NVA had the tripod version only.
