New Marking on Russian IRP

Post by parafireboy » Sat Sep 22, 2018 3:38 pm

Just a miscellaneous observation, but I noticed that on some of the more recent production army-issue IRPs made by Voentorg, they have printed “not for sale” on the bottom right of the box front. I know this is common for many countries to do, but I know that there are a lot of commercial venues in Russia that sell these. Maybe it’s like the US markings, meant as more of a deterrent against theft and sale by military personnel.

Looks like more of a... lets add more crap to the box to make it look more important or to make it a "taboo" to own one. Marketing. :lol:
