Six years ago I had read a short article which gave me immediate and complete answer to all my confusions about modern (to date and later) load-bearing gear novelties.
Over the past 7 years (so the period discussed is 2008-2015 – translator’s remark), among the PMCs and generally among foreign military personnel, widely spread one sickness. It is called just “Green Zone syndrome”. What is it?
Slowly I become an addict to custom patches… Not a problem perhaps. Not a big, at least. So far.
With the very best wishes from Sovet Civil Defence 😉

Again, sorry for long not posting. Sure wait for some news.
Thanks 144:1 for inspiration. Sorry if offended.
Last year(s) I made some translations from English to Russian. I strongly believe that these materials are important and educating, so here is the list in the original language.

– APC’s radio rig worked well?
– Yes. But in the second vehicle something was wrong: they heard us, we cannot hear them. This problem was solved after a long period of time.

– I understand the situation with communications between APCs. What about comms in global view?
– 3-4 km in the open with the use of chinese radios, all the rest of comms by cellular phone. It made me laugh. When we arrived, all bought SIM-cards. I’m calling support of MTS (Ukraine). They tell me:
– you are calling from third region
– oh, yes
– we have subscriber’s plan with all calls within Lugansk and Donetsk region for free
– sure, sign me. Any internet on it?
– yes, this much megabytes a day.
I called it – subscriber’s plan “Separatist”. Completely absurdic. I’m still shocked, why UAF can’t cope with separatists. One jammer – and game over. When MTS dropped service, with Kievstar still in use, about three days we really had no command. At morning arrived a runner by motorcycle, telling orders.
– You have no fear to use phones, in context of spotting [direction-finding]?
– No way without them, till the end of August they carried all command. Somebody said, that he called his mother in Russia, and after that got a mortar fire, but I consider that is not a phones’ fault.

As reported, Ukraine also has R-934. So many intentional misinformation around this stupid war.
