    His beret emblem is that of the German Bundeswehr signal corps (Fernmeldetruppe)
    I've remembered it the moment I saw it, since my brother served with them.

Of course all bad deads, especially Great Purges are forgotten, because it is well known psychological phenomenon, when people do not remember bad things.
    Second, after dissolution of SU, culturally corrupt intelligentcia with their hate to all Soviet things, begin to dump incredible amount of sh1t on Stalin and other Soviet leaders. Most of this sh1t proved to be false at current time, after historians study declassified archives. For example, Solgenitsyn lie about 15-20 mln killed by Stalin proved to be exaggerated at least 10 times. So currently we see "a recoil" in opinions about Stalin, people started to treat all bad information about him as lies, because they saw too many lies already. Another well known psychological theme.

    It is very complex topic, lets not fight here on this.


    Solzhenitsyn is not a liar. 23 million victims from 1917 to 1956 is an estimate from most of historians.

    You and Asch can touch each other there.

    Nice finding. Is the radar on picture a battery radar for Buk-M2? How many russian BMP-2 are upgraded with this Berezhok turret?

    No that's the Zoopark-1M artillery detection radar.

    I would never guess. Original Zoopark is so different and on different vehicle, on the other side this one is so similar to Snow drift battery radar for Buk. I hope artillery units receive both Zoopark-1M and Credo-1S, which stand near Zoopark on photo.

    The name is indeed confusing, also because the 2002 model of the original "Zoopark-1" was also called "Zoopark-1M".

    Ukraine has by the way developed a very similar system, the 1L220-U "Zoopark-2".

    May I ask, why they decide to change vehicle from MT-LBu to the one, which is common for air defense and not in other branches of Russian military. After all, MT-LBu is still in production for other command posts.

    I'm not so sure that the MT-LBu is still in production. I highly doubt it actually. I rather think they are converting older vehicles (1V13-16 set for example) into new versions such as the R-149BMRg etc.
