    Hi there,

    Have been a lurker for a while as there aren't a lot of places in English that talk Russian/Soviet gear without a lot of 'US Strong' type BS.

    Like lots of kids I was very into military vehicles, was impressed by a bunch of the Soviet cold war gear though didn't know too much about it.
    Got more interested in WWII Eastern Front after playing World of Tanks, which combined with the current political climate led to interest in the new Russian gear and a desire to talk about it so here I am.
