This is a very very special treat. These are from the same flash drive.

Photos from the 801st detachment Naval Spetsnaz, Armed Forces of Ukraine & 73rd Naval Special Purpose Forces.

The Bullpup you will see in the photos is the Ukrainian made "MALYUK"
here's some info on it, http://interproinvest.com/products/auto ... e-vulcano/
The Malyuk used by SOF is heavilly modded specifically for each individual operator, depending on their assignment and role.

All the best, Gents.

another round. I have been asking my photographer friend if it would be okay with him to post these photos. He has been very hesitant because he's embarassed of the state of the Ukrainian army. I talked to him on Saturday, he said to me: "I hope they don't think these photos are just an amusing portrait of a decrepid, corrupted, Soviet army that forgot the memo to advance with the times. You tell them that we fight with what we have."

This batch has a bit of many things, photos from 2017-2019, both warm months and winter months. There's a mixture of army, airborne, and marines in the photos.

bonus photo, I posted it to one of the mre groups on facebook yesterday.

This soldier is sitting on an actual mountain of Ukrainian 24hr rations. My friend believes this was taken sometime in the late 2014 to early 2016 time frame.

Man, that’s a pile!

Those Malyuk bullpup conversions of the AK-74s look cool!
All the best, Gents.

a very special photo. Taken during the mortal shelling of a Ukrainian outpost. You can see the serviceman trying to hide the DSHK.

Sasha may be joining these fellas, he has so many things going on in his head that he forgot to write where this VDV unit is based out of. But either way. Bad ass. He's waiting on confirmation.
