I'll PM a few poeple to see who's up for a combined order, give me a few days to get the names together, I think these's 3 so far, and I'll e-mail Alexi, as the kit should really be delivered to seperate addresses.

There seems to be a fair bit of interest in this, is it worth creating a Russian subforum so that discussion doesn't get lost in threads like this?

OK here's the deal with the Russian uniform sets from "Front of Russia", you'll have to order your own gear and pay yourselves, this combined order thing is getting too complex for words, look for set 19E which I have listed below(part of an e-mail from Alexi, http://www.frontofrussia.com/index.html
You'll need to use the measuring chart here-: http://www.frontofrussia.com/size.html
This set will include everything that you could possibly need for both a summer uniform and a winter uniform, plus webbing and back pack, don't know why he's included the cigarettes, totally beyond me! This represents an absolute bargain for $212

The set includes:




19E - Famous M1943 Soviet Red Army summer uniform set. It includes: M43 gimnasterka, M43 galife breeches, pilotka hat, waist belt. - $85+$20(s/h)

Padded jacket - $45+$20(s/h)

grenade pouch - $9+$2(s/h)

Canteen - $9+$3(s/h)

Back pack (Veshmieshok) - WW2 original pattern - $15+$4(s/h)




+ WW2 private's gloves

+ 2 extra white inner collars into each uniform set.

+ 4 packs of WW2 pattern cigarettes into each set.

--------------------------------------------------------

The total is $212 each set.

--------------------------------------------------------

The total for 5 sets is $212 x 5 = $1060

I meant to do this at the last training day and take some photos of our Russian gear, simply ran out of time, so here's a few of my mate Nick in his Russian infantryman loadout and one of my own ugly dish as well. The shirt was £15, trousers £15, hat £5 and helmet £5, the rest is made up from an old belt off my jeans and some German webbing, as the Russians used a lot of captured German equipment. This really has to be the cheapest WW2 airsoft immpression out thee and it looks pretty good IMHO. What do you think?

Can't believe how cheap commie kit is! Surely we can get enough people to invest so we can have an eastern front game in the future?

Looks good too.
