    You were on goggle when you did? Because there were others plus the images.

    The only major difference from that 2009 plan is that the Recon company was increased to a battalion. And check out the strategy page version which is based on the MT-LBV equipped units and gives more details.

    Russian Army Officer selection, training and promotion.

    Post  Sanctus Ferri on Mon Jul 11, 2016 8:31 am

    What are the requirements to become an officer in the Russian Army? Are talented enlisted people promoted to officer rank very often, or do most officers get recruited into academies from the general public?

    How long does basic officer training last? What about arm of service training?

    What sort of criteria are used to assess suitability for promotion? Do officers have to pass through some kind of general staff course to reach general rank, as in the Bundeswehr?

    But we only had seen the "common version" of both (63968  and 63059), what i really want to know is about these specific versions, with more armor and some changes.
    And by the way typhoon-K 63969 never apeared in any parade, we only have some pictures of tests.

    S-60 Tech Manual

    Post  amcm923 on Tue Nov 15, 2016 10:27 pm

    Good day. Looking for the T.O. for a 57mm S-60 AA gun. Failing that, need advice on several issues, pls:
    1. How to remove the barrel so we can move the gun into a building for restoration;
    2. Are there U.S. equivalent tires available?

    Hi:
    My name is Sergio Josiowicz. I live in Argentine and this photo have been sent to me from a relative in USA.

    I think this is a russian soldier. Can anyone identify the insignia in his hat? And maybe can anyone can identify the time of this uniform?

    Russian Motor Rifle Squad Nomenclature

    Post  JMCR on Wed Oct 04, 2017 1:00 am

    Would a squad under a motor rifle company be labelled numerically(1st, 2nd, etc) or alphabetically(alfa, bravo, etc)?

    Hello,
    I'm looking for all kind of information regarding the offroad vehicle named caiman or tarentula.

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    I looked it up.

    Basically 'Kaiman' is a private St. Petersburg vehicle construction bureau that was active since the early 90s; they've made a number of different prototypes (don't think any of them were produced in series), called like Kaiman 1, Kaiman 2, Kaiman 3, etc... sort of like frankenstein models with engines and transmissions from VAZ models, other parts from UAV cars and old LUAZ vehicles, and their own aluminium-based frames. Some even had parts from BTRs. I believe about 7 exist in total, all different.

    One of these variants was exhibited in France, 20 years ago or so, where it got rave reviews and a lot of interest.

    The Kaiman 3 stared in a Russian New Year's film 20 years ago. Dunno where it went after that.

    The vehicle in the vids you posted is a Kaiman 4

    Here's a link about the Kaiman 5, an armoured variant (but with decreased off-road ability) that was demonstrated to the military in the late 90s. It got high praise but ultimately no-one had the money or interest to induct a new vehicle at the time. The link contains videos of other prototypes too:
    http://alternathistory.com/vezdekhod-kaiman-5-rossiya

    Here's a variant called the Tarantul, an enhanced version of the early Kaiman off-road buggies, trialed by the military in '98-'99, tearing out in front of the competition
    http://otvaga2004.ru/kaleydoskop/kaleydoskop-wheel/ukus-tarantula/
    http://5koleso.ru/articles/obzory/tarantul-nash-otvet-hammeru

    Another interesting model is the Kaiman Vepr', which is an armoured truck that was demonstrated in the early 2000s:
    https://strangernn.livejournal.com/204024.html

    As for the Kaiman design bureau now, I think the head of it (Sergei Tsymbalyuk) was forced to vacate his workshop and lay off his workers sometime in the mid-2000s, given that no serious customer ultimately decided to buy his vehicles. Nevertheless as of 10 years ago he was still apparently active in vehicle construction, tied to the Russian defence industries in some way.
    Perhaps you can find him on social networks or something (his name in Russian is Сергей Цымбалюк). If anyone can tell you the present-day location and condition of the prototypes, or elaborate on his latest constructions, then it would of course be the man himself.

    Hi flamming_python,
    Many thanks for your help.
    I will try to contact the designer.
    If you hear about a second hand model for sale, please let me know.

    Hello,

    I tried to find the manufacturer, but I did not succeed. If anybody does know it, I will be glad for help Smile

    Thanks
