    Think I'll stick with that then. Roll an aks74, pasgt, flora and smersh. Having some second thoughts on blowing 300 dolla on it though.

    Why would I pay $145 for Digi-Flora than $55 for regular Flora? O_o

    Then there's no reason to get digiflora unless you want to have that new age russian operator look or just really really really want it

    Ah, okay. Considering I'm "the dude over there with the AKM", then I'll probably keep the $100 and buy some other Rossia gear.

    I just wanna have a generic look.
    Flora camo, my AKM, and a vest. Boom.
    If you wanted a generic Russian soldier look you'd want a 6Sh92 but those are never in stock ever.

    probably a modernized variant

    thing is, I think the more advanced units get more publicity (mostly VDV, alfa, vityaz, etc) so you don't see as much pictures of the conscripts wearing older equipment with older rifles (note the second to last picture AK74 with wooden furniture) because obviously Russia doesn't want to give an impression that they equip their regular troops with 60 year old equipment

    Edited:

    that's why you get the funny impression everyone at least has digi flora, 6BXX body armor, and 6sh92s

    The pictures you posted also have no dates on them so it's impossible to tell if these in fact are recent pictures of conscripts in second rate units or VDV soldiers in Chechnya during the 90's. Although I do agree with you that the conscripts in the second rate units would have older stuff, they are far from the generic modern Russian soldier, which would be the Digital Flora, 6Bxx, 6Shxx kit because that's what Russia shows us as being their generic soldier.

    you can see his hands gripping around the trigger guard and left of that is the faint outline of the pistol grip

    RA wiki says kosovo, but technically wouldn't the conscript be the generic soldier because afaik that's what makes up the bulk of the Russia militari

    As Russia downsizes and modernizes their armed forces I'm sure we'll see a lot less of that older stuff though. If you look at the recent pictures in the Russian military thread on militaryphotos.net there's Digital Flora everywhere.

    Edited:

    But just to prove your point a little bit, I managed to find one picture of current Russian troops using Digital Flora, 6B5s and steel helmets.

    but it seems like those are events where they knew publicity would be there

    I swear, I'm in a team where we're doing a conscript loadout and all those pictures where the soldiers are wearing old equipment are fucking hard to find and the only ones we can find a chechen and ossetian war snapshots where the soldiers are in actual combat and the public image person wasn't present to make all the infantry look like FUTURE FORCE WARRIOR

    heck, half aren't even wearing body armor

    Not as thick as I expected but it does not breathe super well. I could probably ski in it fine in the spring, and airsoft in it fall to spring.

    So I guess I probably wouldn't want a Gorka in my semi-desert summer conditions then.
