please comrades, pics or gtfo.
Is this camo pattern called Partizan ? Also I have seen a number of different camo patterns worn by Russian troops. Whats the most common and why the lack of a uniform camo ? Thx
Flora is most common one.
Uniformity is up to unit's SOP as far as I know.
Thank You for the info.
pics, no comments...
The military is funded better now, but I still can't believe they let planes fly abroad with such rundown paint job. By the way my father helped to paint the original camo (the only camo'd An-22) back in 1980's when he was stationed in Tver.
Those are the ones... thanks.I presume you are referring to the RGN (left) and RGO?
The number of stories I have read from WWII where the brave Soviet soldiers picked the enemies grenades and hurled them back always made me wonder why more grenades do not have impact fuses.
Thanks Calimero2, and also TheArmenian for that wonderful photo of the Moskva.
Your first post here and you post two pictures of C0cks!... (sorry... bad joke... the NATO codename for the An-22 is C0CK.)Hi guys this is my first try so forgive me if the photos are a repost.
Sorry, I must be blind but all I see is a large impact point with no penetration and with radial impact points around it. To me it looks like a large calibre tank round that was HE FRAG. The radial pattern of impacts from the fragments near the nose of the projectile as the nose crushes into the turret on impact.What AT weapon could that be? (Hole in the turret)
Lucky guy. Can only imagine what it must sound like to hear the worlds largest turboprop aircraft take off...By the way my father helped to paint the original camo (the only camo'd An-22) back in 1980's when he was stationed in Tver.
