    If you look back up the thread you'll see them - its a vehicle ID on a red/yellow circle. The things are usually magnetic and can be taken off if need be.

    In Soviet times these were red and white.

    Its meant to be seen...

    Nice pics.

    There's something about the blue & white *****ed undershirt that really says "Navy" to me.

    Very unique, very Russian.

    Love it!

    Its all to do with General V. F. Margelov who reformed the VDV after WW2. He had served as an officer in charge of Naval Infantry in WW2 and knew how the pride in the "telnyashka" affected their fighting spirit. So when he reformed the VDV he decided they too should have the telnyashka (in light blue).

    Based on this idea every Russian elite unit has worn a telnyashka, so don't f*** with any Russian soldier you see wearing a *****ey shirt

    Tradition has it that removing your outer garments to reveal just the shirt is a sign that you will fight to the death and no quarter will be given or expected.

    The Spetsnaz forces wear the *****ed shirt as well, right?

    I remember seeing some surplus shirts in an Army-Navy catalogue a few years back. I thought about buying one... but then worried that the ghosts of Russian commandos would come and beat me to death in my sleep.

    These carriages have some sort of armoured train setup. Its 1920 all over again. Trotsky would be proud.

    Yes, they are elite units... so just like I said. They might not wear them all the time (they are supposed to be covert sometimes) but generally, yes.

    They don't mind too much. Its a popular piece of civillian attire in Russia too.

    Remember that unless you are an elite Russian soldier, wearing a telynashka doesn't make you invincible

    That is, if the enemy has no airpower.

    [FONT=Verdana]Telnyashka(light blue) and Beret of the same colour (colour of the skies) are part of VDV uniform. Army Spetsnaz, having the same uniform, actually disguised themselves as VDV. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana]Folks usually wear naval telnyashka (dark/naval blue). Wearing Desantniy Telnik might get your in trouble. Certainly donít wear it on 2nd of august. [/FONT]
