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.
Training Day… Members of Russia’s Spetsnaz engage in a training exercise. They’re riding atop what some have called the Russian equivalent (or answer) to the U.S HMMWV (Humvee). The GAZ 2975 “Tiger” seems to have different layouts depending on what its being used for.
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”.
