  • Help if definition of English equavalent

    Hello.

    Can you help me in correct version of that thing which these guys have dressed on the head.

    Uniform_75 - In Russian it means "furazhka", I translated it as "peaked cap".

    Uniform_105 - In Russian it means "pilotka", I translated it as "sided cap".

    Am I right?

    I believe so. Even though (I don't know if they are correct) I've heard some people address the officer's headgear as a peaked cap. The first one can also be known as a "garrison cap" or "forage cap". Unless the Russian Army had caps for those names.

      Can you give your recomendation about first image what is nmore correct - "peaked cap" or "forage cap"? And it is not only officer's headgear.

      My dictionary gives some versions and I am amazed that there is not one concrete term for this headgear.

        I would say they are both interchangeable, though some armies it differs. In the US the 1st one would be a "garrison cap" (modern) while a "forage cap" would be a Napoleonic type Kepi. (1800's). I think for the Russian Army it would be both. Maybe we can get some more input from someone else too.
