Alot of new, very clear footage:
(11:27 short clip of an interesting shooting & movement course)
which unit is this?
The claim is they are 45th Guards - Detached Reconnaissance Regiment - Airborne.
Interesting Wiki entry on them:
Extremely interesting video.
Appeared very "produced", then again, so do most of our videos.
11:27 is a guy holding his weapon right handed, aiming with his left eye- cool.
Spetsnaz seem to do a lot of cool whiz bang shit like skiing and backflips, etc. But, I'm sure their ability to actually get it on and kill bad guys is about on par with most other central Asian nations.
That's a bit of a blanket statement, Spetsnaz is an overarching term like SOF is and there are a lot of them. Who knows what the FSB/SVR top tier units and whatnot can do? Not me, for one!
I've seen many east European/central Asia "SOF" units, it's a relative term.
I noticed that too. I thought that maybe that was just a Russian technique. If it were, it wouldn't totally surprise me. I've seen other things that were very odd so I was like, "hey, look at that, using the opposite eye, guess that's how they roll." LOL
True, very cinematic; even got the skully balaclavas:
Clearly this was made as a warning for the Chechens. Yawn...
Whatever you think of the Russians, those PKMs are a fucking cool looking bit of gun.
