Red Army field positions

Comrades,

These holes were dug to Red Army Doctrine and within Soviet Army Norms, see how better they look to just ragged earth piled in front of a long hole with lots of sand bags which is what many just do when having a hole to play in.

The effect.

And much easlier to build than a trench to lay a gas/water pipe is, as most with a poor understanding of their Direction of interest's Fieldcraft do when they have a fighting position to play in.

These holes will become our graves, we will give not a centimetre to the Gitlerite Invader.

Urrah!.

A heroic labour effort!!

Lining the bottom of the fighting position with branches is a really, really good idea.

Cheers

It helped to soaked up the ten centimetres of liquid mud we had after trying to baling out the twenty centimetre of standing water ( with tin cans and mess tins ) after the rain storms we had at this Front, Comrade. :D
