    Who would want old Type 56-II's for one's troops especially with all the stocks still sleeping around Georgia! Serbs did it with prior green light from the Russian MOD. But us? WTF?

    Oh btw on my road home I wanted to pass through Torino today, but as I was late I pushed until the outskirts of Milano.

    Now I'm surprized, Autogrills have WI-FI what is this?

    well maybe they gave them Policani's crap-u know pay 1 and get 3
    i believe they got mainly ammunition and artillery shells,we have same calibers and if uncle Sam said so they would have got arms for free.

    i dont buy the serb story of the permission granted from Russian Mod.Why would they get accused now?Or why their ex Foreign Aff minister would be critic about the thing?

    Shame on u,u could have stopped.No peacekeeper checkpoints here definitely.

    Either autogrills have wifi or u have gprs on roaming

    Tough Soviet plane .. Notice the extra Ukranian armor between the exhaust that kept it flightworthy.

    A Georgian soldier inspects the helmet of a Russian peacekeeper soldier left in the Senaki Military Base, a Georgian military base which was occupied by Russian forces and evacuated last Saturday, in western Georgia, August 25, 2008

    A Georgian soldier gives thumb up to a US soldier (R) from the 21st Theatre Sustainement Command at the EU Command arriving at a looted Georgian army base outside Gori August 25, 2008. The Georgian police have replaced the Russian troops but there still has not been time to dismantle the cement blocks that marked Moscow's checkpoints.

    Russian troops loaded down with loot in the South Ossetia town Tskhinvali on August 25, 2008.

    Russian soldiers smile as they sit on APC moving towards the town of Alagir, some 40 km outside Vladikavkaz as they leave South Ossetia on August 24, 2008

    A Russian serviceman gestures while waiting to travel on a road leading to Russia, in South Ossetia, near the border with North Ossetia, August 25, 2008. Georgia and Russia fought a brief war earlier this month after Tbilisi tried to retake the breakaway pro-Russian province of South Ossetia, prompting an overwhelming counter-attack from Moscow.

    It's a tripod for an optical device, large binoculars or more likely a stereoscopic range finder. Used with field artillery or AAA.

If you got any other ideas, please share them.
    THIS IS GEORGIANS.
    caucasians have a strong facial hair growing. On TV you can see a lot of georgian soldiers with a facial hair. (One russian guy told me a story about his armenian friend who served in soviet army. This poor armenian had to shave every morning, sometimes two times per day)
    About "nonwestern" vest and weapon - only a few brigades of georgians had a western assault rifles and gear and this elite forces (trained by foreign specialists) had a biggest casualties in this conflict. They were professional soldiers, but the rest of georgian forces are poorly trained. You can expect that simple soldiers can take off their helmets during a combat (expecially when their asses are kicked and thy are retreating) Other georgian soldiers have poorer equipment - AK, soviet steel helmets, soviet AK ammo pouches (TV)
    S.ossetian militia dont have any uniform discipline, but they dont use georgian MARPAT uniforms. I cannot imagine a situation that three s.ossetian militants are wearing full georgian uniform (trousers, jacket, patrol cap, combat-2 boots)

    sorry I was wrong, this is russians
    lol

Acquiring a pair of the excellent Argentine boots to replace their own sodden footwear was a high priority for British soldiers and marines, leading to much amusement when on at least one occasion the ‘corpse’ being *****ped jumped to its feet and ran off into the darkness.[/SIZE] [SIZE=2]British soldiers carrying Sterling sub-machine guns threw them away and picked up Argentine FALs which fired automatic unlike the British self-loading rifle. The ubiquitous Argentine .5-inch heavy machine guns were a lethal menace, as were their 120-mm heavy mortars. The British had neither — until we captured them in battle. [/SIZE]

    I don't doubt that we could find instances of other armies doing the same??

    Ken

    The problem was that British paras were short of ammunition, both to SMG and to mortars... no wonder they took captured weapons. Same for boots... as they had to march for days through swampy and wet areas. But there is difference between combat necessity during fighting and using captured equipment becouse your own is ****ty.
