    Greetings from Africa

    Post  tiger7565 on Wed Jul 13, 2016 10:23 am

    Thank you for the add. I am a long time student of military history and a retired LTC in the US Army Reserve. My basic branch was Field Artillery. I continue to be fascinated by Soviet/Russian military hardware and am anxious to continue my learning curve. I spent three years in Afghanistan and was able to explore a lot of equipment storage yards replete with everything from T-55 and newer tanks, BRDMs, BMPs, ZSU-23s, D-30 howitzers, 82mm mortars, D-100 AT guns, Sukhoi-family aircraft, as well as assorted trucks, tractors and other prime movers.
