Once again after email correspondence with few exhibitors from this years IWA Exhibition and finally some free time, even if AGAIN, a bit late, I can proudly inform you about the new things and exhibitors we encountered. Sadly due to some SD-card issues we lost a lot of pictures 🙁
In my long hunt for a Kamysh BDU type Suit in my size (58/5) and in somehow “mint” or “new” condition, I finally stumbled upon this sweet and high quality Magellan made MPA-4 Summer Suit on the selling section of Red-Alliance.net Forums.
Did you ever wonder what russian Soldiers eats on the battlefield? Well, then you are welcome to take a culinary tour with me through the Daily Raition of the russian Military.
Now after 2 months and several email traffic with different exhibitors since our visit, I had the chance and time to write a full fledged Summary about our experience and encounters at the Nuremberg IWA 2013 Exhibition.
Today I want you to introduce you to a quite new Company called VSO (витязь спецоснащение // Vityaz Special Purpose) which is a Belarusian Company with their distribution Office located in Warsaw, Poland. They produce different Apparel like Gorkas, Maskhalats, Hats, Helmet Covers and Equipment like Harnishes and Assault Backpacks in a huge variation of camouflage Patterns. Actually Greg, from the UK office of VSO, told us that you can order anything they offer in the desired camouflage Pattern, even Western Camo like Marpat/Cadpat.
Everybody who is a russian military/speznas enthusiast, like we are, got a Telnyashka. But did you know that there are different colored ones? And that every Color has its own affiliation to a Military/Special Forces Group?
Here we go again! Another Gorka review – this time I have a Blokpost Gorka from 2006 for you guys. This particular Blokpost Gorka is somewhat special – it belonged to a member of ROSN Yekaterinburg, Russia! ROSN is a department of FSB (former KGB). These soldiers respond to situations involving certain types of violent criminals and terrorists. Besides that, it is just a regular Blokpost Gorka from the year 2006 and it has the typical washed out and used look (which I personally dig a lot).
Since in Europe/ Germany it is quite difficult to get your hands on a Gorka E, it took me a while to finally get one myself. I bought this particular one second hand on http://www.red-alliance.net from a guy from Croatia (Puno hvala!). As I already reviewed and wrote about the Gorka-1, also known as Soviet Gorka. I recommend you to read this review first, to get to know the origins of the Gorka Suit itself and the main difference to its modernized and perfected descendant.
After a Month full of work, I finally could manage to take my time to write this long overdue Review.
Today I have the ultimate High Visible Armband Replica for you ALFA/FSB fanatics. The great detail makes this armband a nearly perfect replica of the SSO/SPOSN HiViz Armbands, which you crave after seeing all those sweet Pictures and Videos on Russia Today, Ria Novosti and Co.
