Russia

#1
Now, is it me. Or has all this business about Russia suddenly gone quiet very abruptly?

I may be missing something that the media put out, i dont know.
But one minute we were escorting their ''training exercise'' bombers out of our airspace, the next minute, nothing's happening.

Anybody else notice this?

Be not afraid of us. We, here in Russia, are the same as you.
Some of us drive LR Defenders, wear DPM on weekends, and visit "Belfast" pub on wednesdays.
We like this forum (Especially QM and MT) :D

Welcom to our forum www.ukcoalition.net/forum

Zdrastvuy Sgt Alex,

I never knew that Russia had Airsoft types as well...

Pardon me, lack of clarity on my part.

What I should have said was that I had a look at his clicky and it goes to a Russian Airsoft site which appears to be interested in the British Army.

As for Airsoft, Never tried it :)

It is possible to write in russian at this topic, I see. OK.

Why we do it?

Потому что у нас нет TA.

Почти каждый из нас служил в армии. Память устроена так, что помнишь только лучшее. Одевая всю эту сбрую - PLCE, каску, бронежилет, таская LSW по полям, по грязи, мы как-бы возвращаемся в наши лучшие годы. Мы доказываем себе, что мы по-прежнему все можем.

Лингвисты, просьба, переведите.

P.S.
Если модератор сочтет, что тема не для этого форума - пусть удалит мои посты.

Linguists, please translate:

Pozhalujsta. Spirit rather than letter of translation observed.

Because we don't have a TA.

Pretty much all of us served in the Army. The way memory works is that you only remember the good stuff. Wearing all the kit - helmet, PLCE, body armour, dragging an LSW across the fields and through the mud, it all takes us back to our best days. It somehow convinces us that we can still hack it.

They are just being more sneaky about it now (I still don't believe that the cold war ever thawed) beware KGB_Resident will be alerted by this and all his FSB buddies will be after me again...I have not drank any tea in months!!!!!


mean while "glad it all over" is actually a defector and "SGT alex" is a Spetsnaz operative. I'm on to you...

I don't know if they're a threat - they're a great power, dropped off the rader after the 1991 Unpleasantness and coming back, now. Oil at $130+ a barrel doesn't hurt.

I've been very lucky and spent a lot of time in Russia the last few years and it's been super fun. A lot of the people I get to meet share quite a lot of background, on the other side of the IGB if you follow and they're very easy to work with. Awesome on the lash as well. Business is business and it's very noticeable that, whatever the state of diplomatic relations between the two States, the attitude of the locals is as uninterested in what their government's up to as ours is.

I think we should be relaxed about Russia. The Russians are a proud folk with an amazing military tradition - let's not forget who beat the Germans, fair and square (I pause to insert the usual Lend-Lease caveats). They're never likely to be our best mates, politically - too many conflicting interests - but it'll never be the Cold War all over again.

I thoroughly approve of Sgt_Alex and KGB_Resident's being around here and value their insights. I'm particularly awed by their English - imagine any of us attempting to build a profile on, say, the Ex-KGB Operator's Message Board Named for Feliks Dzerzhninskij in Russian.
