  • soviet infantry uniforms, 1942

    Some months ago I recall on this forum that there was a thread devoted to soviet uniforms of ww2. I am having difficulty finding this thread, or is it not here at all????????????.
    If people could direct me to colour illustrations of uniforms of this era I would be appreciative.
    I understand that OSPREY BOOKS have recently released a book that should cover my interests, but I ordered it last year from my local hobby store and I am still waiting. It would seem that there is a extremely low demand for this book in Australia.

                    Fairly basic then.
                    The M41 Basic uniform:

                    When it grew colder you would see this:

                    Weapons used are the standards of the GPW. Nothing outstanding for Stalingrad that I know of atleast.

                    Russians are wery simple dressed (the common soldier that is) compared to the germans with basic stuff that holds and works longer then german as its easier to repair in field and dont realie heavely on metal parts as the germans D-rings and stuff.

                          There is no specific branch. All insignia was green as part of a subdued pattern introduced in later 1941. All that used to be red or bright became that shade of olive green.

                              It is very easy!

                              Green star sign was a field version of the red star sign.
