    I'm not a supporter nor I'd want an organisation like that to be revived but the insignia is powerful - an echo of the old, less PC times. In addition, the provoking message fits my MP.net personality rather well (). As for what it represents..well, it's pretty clear from the picture that it's the Finnish white guard/anti-communist beating the Russian (communist) bear with a club.

    No holes from AK and PKM seems plausible, but surely an RPG would penetrate even the front easily.

    I think he means they were there intially for RPG aiming purposes, but as it happened to be they used their light arms on it, which produces no penetrations.

    RPG would penetrate any part of 'vanilla' BMP-1.
