french counter terror and german counter terror use them, american helicopter pilots and mounted gunners use them as well IIRC.
most militaries issue goggles or glasses that protect from shrapnel, because shrapnel is more of a threat inna sandbox. For counter terror units kicking in doors, they have more of a concern taking a round to the face. Its not really useful for everyone to have a face shield.
>What kind of flashlight do you want on your gun Yuri?
>Just fuck my shit up Borris
And then apparently Borris decided to tape the biggest damn mag light he could find onto Yuri's gun. Because yeah, that makes sense.
same same but different
besides, i've been drinking hard tonight, mea culpa
to protect your torso
they often seen with a red circle in the center
the circle act as a visual distraction
Oh, hey footage, you didn't have your name on.
I get it but one guy with a REAL ballistic shield on the front should be enough.
eh, I forgot to take it off, Im picky with where I namefag
But I am the liquor, so fuck it
he's saying that it ain't a VSS
that pic was from 2004 or 2006
when Russian hadn't know about the existence of 1913 rail and tactical gear
if they need a flash light, they would just duck tape one on their gun
you might need to cover more than one angle, and cover men in more than one position
if you are in the kind of position where you need an AK proof shield to get through, you're not likely to be in a situation where grenades are not an option
they are also lighter than a full size ballistic shield
>if you are in the kind of position where you need an AK proof shield to get through, you're not likely to be in a situation where grenades are not an option
Grenades are not an option when hostages are around, like during last year events in france.
About ballistic shields, are they immune to 5,56 or 5,45 AP ?
bretty good footage of what I believe are FSB spetsnaz fighting Dangestani ISIS members
>5,56 or 5,45 AP ?
level 3 ceramic plate can stop them
but level 3 AR-500 cann't
that footage was old
and the my russian sauce said they was just some rebel
fucking World Conflict footage lied to me :(
there are still some remain chechen rebel in that region
this channel always apdate the newest footage from MVD and FSB operation
Russians have been using some sexy stuff lately. I don't even know what suits are these, but they look great. Some sort of modern gorka?
>What the fuck is the shield guy holding over his shoulder?
part of the shield
Imagine being these small town units and seeing FSB using lightweight articulated shields while your unit has to carry this heavy monstrosity.
i don't know
MVD and FSB operator on operation would wear what ever they want
holy shit that sounds kind of awesome
>be internal security special forces
>freedom to look as operator as possible
>able to pull do a mission, remove chechens and then be back home by the end of the week
Misha u my bipod now
also, this kinda funny how he tries to aim/holding the gun.
i really hope the picture has taken for the sake of the mistake this dumb boris made.
also, it just me or the stock of the gun is behind his shoulder?
*posts picture of knock tig helmet.*
Not sure why his face is so amusing to me.
