Last time I looked russian gear is crap. Most everything other than the AK was crap to come from that commie hell hole. Why would we want it when everything we have now is far superior? Then again our commie and chief will have us goose stepping to their national anthem if he has it his way.

Thanks for the info Max, Your correct, $2500 per month is not much for an income in this country where $30,000 a year isnt even Middle Class income. Shamefully, our Garbage Pickup people in New York City make more than 11B30 is making as an E-6/ SSG.

"I respect the labour of a military of any country. we don`t decide anything... we are neither good nor bad.. we just do what we are made for. It is only politicans who may be good or bad, stupid or clever", You said a mouthful Comrade! Sadly, too many in our own Nation have no respect for our military or the dangerous jobs they do for us every day.

You guys have some of the same problem children to deal with that we do, just much closer to your border. The little Hitler in North Korea probably doesnt like Russia anymore than he likes the US and Iran isnt a friend to anyone but Iran. We both have the same Elephant in the room, China to keep watch on but probably neither of us can stop them if they want to start moving into new territories.

The duties for leaders are a bit different according to branch and Job. In my Anti Armor TOW Platoon we had a total of 10 Lower Enlisted, 5 Non Commissioned Officers and one Commissioned Officer.
- Sgt (E5) is in charge of a squad that has a gunner and a driver (E-1 through E-4),
- Staff Sgt (E6) is in charge of a Section (2 Squads)
- Sgt First Class (E7) is in charge of all enlisted and NCO's in the platoon (2 Sections) (Mostly Logistical)
- 2nd or 1st Lt (O2, O1) is in charge of the The Platoon and Command Vehicles (Mostly Tactical)

The Commissioned Officer has the highest rank but the Platoon Sgt usually has the most experience and generally runs the Platoons daily Soldier activities and ensures supplies and equipment are always on hand. The Commissioned Officer often plans and commands the Battle but not much else. TOWs were a smaller Infantry Platoon but we packed an amazing amount of fire power in 4 Gunships and 2 Command Wheeled Vehicles.

I was in a hotel (anti armor) platoon for a while as an E5 and it was manned slightly diffetently
2x E5 both had 7 soldiers who comprised the vehicle crews
1x E6 who was section sergeant and in charge of the E5's
1x E7 who does exactly what you described above
And of course then the LT who just tried not to look silly lol. I don't know if you were Army or Marine, but in the Army they combined all the infantry aside from 11C (mortar man) into 11B and got rid of the 11M and 11H MOS.

Maximilian, what sidearm do you guys shoot or carry? What pistol? Is it the 9x18 Makarov or the APS Stechkin 9mm or the APB Automatic silent pistol or the GSh-18? Or do you pistols at all?

Thank you too for the info.. it seems like we have it very similar with squads forming.. though I know very little about artiliery. We have a "GRAD"( modernized version of Katusha) division of 200 artillery men in our military unit, but they are quite as lambs... we call them lazy bones.. while we`re jumping around in fields and forests training all year round they sit in classes learning something... never wear any munition...white collars in other words. once in 3 months they launch their rockets and get back to their units to continue sleeping and lying on their coaches. 70% of them have higher education 30 % have driving licence category C. It`s not a service it is paradise! But I wouldn`t want it. No romantic about it!

We don`t carry pistols at all... Only officers can carry pistols.. and that`s Makarov. But we shoot them sometimes at ranges if officers let us.. Makarov is not the best of pistols.. TT is the best.. Stechkin was used during the WW2 .. I haven`t even seen it in real.. APB never heard of it...

Are you, as a private citizen, allowed to own a pistol, shotgun, or AK rifle?

Ak- No.. you can have a pistol, but this will take you either lots of money to get permission ( our burocracy) or you`ll be tired of a very long routine... You`ll be better without it than have it.. You can buy a rubber bullets pistol or a pneumatic gun... It`s easy to get a permission for a smooth-bore guns and rifles( for hunting for example) but almost impossible to get it for a rifled gun unless you have money..
