Looking to get the same gear as the Vityaz does. With the camo, what would it be used in the summer and fall (when the trees are dead)? Better yet, what could be used in the summer and fall? Already have the boots and one of those Chinese AK mag chest rigs so that will be fine for now. What color stripped shirts would I need to wear? Would I wear colored patches?

Reed camo, Kamysh and smog are the norm in summer woodland. Partizan and flectar-D in autumn. In an urban area then the urban reed camo and urban shadow camo are popular. As for striped shirts red or paratrooper blue are the norm. Coloured patches, the boys would wrap camo material round the patches if they need to hide.

They wouldn't have to I don't believe, those guys are officers during a show of equipment. I doubt they have seen much physical activity in many years with having what basically equates to a desk job in many instances.

Kind of depends on what type of uniform you have bought and what you are going for; authenticity or practicality. I'm assuming the winter FLORA is what you went for, so I would recommend going for the modern winter lined 'Crocodile,' boots. You know you've found the right pair if it has a padded/reinforced upper on the back of the boots. Either way you will want to find some portiyanki (winter variant) to protect your feet, because Russian military boots are infamous for destroying your feet without proper lining from portiyanki or certain types of socks. Or if that's not warm enough, valenki is always a good choice. Those have been used since The Great Patriotic War, and still today.
