Thanks bro, I posted all but a couple a long time ago, but this is a good place for them.Great pics YANKEEBOBB!
They were not specifically for one unit, border troops, snipers, airborne, and other special units all used them.What were those uniforms for? I thought they were for snipers?
63rd Para Brigade - 63 Padobranska BrigadaYou know what unit are these guys from?
Localy made torpedo boats, made after 1948 when USA sent, among other aid, big batch of aircraft motors.
I have some questions:
2. Some online literatures mentioned that during the 1973 Yom Kippur War, a Soviet airborne division was stationed in alert mode somewhere in an airbase in Yugoslavia, ready for immediate deployment to Middle East. Can someone confirm this?
The Soviets invading Jugoslavia in the event of a Nato Warsaw Pact confrontation...That is perhaps the scenario likely for the period when Tito stood up to Stalin and the west started flirting with Tito, and for a few years after that.
I believe, but not only I, that orientations of all the parties involved in this scenario had already changed by the seventies.
