Russian soldiers in the Caucasas Mountains. Soldier in the front with what’s probably an AK-74M, while the SVD is clearly seen in the background. Note the older PKM GPMG with a fluted barrel in the second image.
PKP Pecheneg A newer, more modern version of the PKM General Purpose Machine Gun. Still chambered in the 120+ year old 7.62x54R cartridge. Interestingly it doesn’t retain the quick change barrel feature on the older PKM. Instead it has a thicker and heavier barrel. The soldier looks like he has the K6-3 helmet but without the face shield.
Evac… Russian soldiers waiting for their troop transport helicopter to land. Looks like it’s an Mi-17 “Hip”, which is usually found transporting troops with the Mi-24 “Hind”.
9A-91 assault rifle, chambered in 9x39mm. Based on the AK series of rifles, it uses the same long-stroke gas piston system.
военнослужащий Russian soldiers posing for a photo after (or before) training. They’re equipped with the AK-74M, you can see the side-folding stock button on the rear of the receiver. What’s interesting here is that all of the rifles have the 1P29 optic. That scope is a copy/clone of the British Trilux SUIT. One major difference is that the 1P29 still incorporates the Dragunov style reticle.
