question was it Russians or the Kadurovs force in the chopper?
Is it true all of spetsnaz dead? I heard that heli was down and that's it. Damn.
Lavrov died, Rostropovich died, Bronze Soldier Monument at Tenismyagi's removed, heli's down. Any good news for today?
PS Found info about the heli. It's a rumor that Doku Umarov is blocked by federal troops. Wish he'd be there...

AKS-74U is a traditional carbine and is deployed as such. Any personel that carry something heavy, or operate systems or equipment as their main job often are issued with carbines instead of a full sized rifle to reduce the amount the weapon gets in their way. Carbine generally much less accurate and with shorter range but offers more commonality with infatnry rifle than a SMG and more powerful and much more use than any pistol.
What do you mean by mismatched? There are US soldiers stationed in Europe that wear snow camo, soldiers in Iraq in desert camo, and soldiers elsewhere that have jungle or simple green camo... why are they all so mismatched?So heres a question, just how uniform is the Russian army? Like are they trying to get them all the same equitment or are they still really mismatched
Yeah, fully-equipped soldiers are only elite groups in reality. Common line troops are equipped like hell only in Hollywood films. Look - most of US soldiers shown in Iraq have woodland-camo armor vests. And Marine Corps had overaged M60s as tank support. So what now, we'll decide US spend little sums of money for its armed forces? ))))
There were lacks in military budgets even at Cold War, and they were drastically reduced for today (except US maybe). Russian forces are suffering the USSR-collapse and chaos so they look mismatched even more than in Western countries. But for instance Germany got rid of amount of tanks, and all tank-crews got infantry designations and now fulflilling infantry tasks..
But don't worry, looking at what happening in the world all countries begin to arm themselves and spend lots of money to defend their point of view instead of building its industry or improve education, just you wait...
Here have some photos about the russian army.
I dedicated to sell russian military equipment and buy many used or new military equipment in russia and for this reason I have very good relation with some soldiers of the russian army, I think that the trainning of the Spetsnaz is the more hard and complet around the world, is my think.
Absolutely fantastic photos, RomanS and Spetsnaz Omon, as usual! Specibo!!!!!!!!
