I wanted to get some opinions on a 'beta,' so to speak of some 1st Chechen War impressions that will soon be attempted. For now I just want to compile a few to show what's what and how it's going to look before finished.

Funny how google search shows more pictures of Chechen terrorist/gorilla fighters than Russian soldiers.

No the guys from Ulbrichts never responded to me either... I'm guessing they would not want to discuss transactions between them and the KGB.

But yeah don't worry I know all too well what the conditions looked like in Chechnya... Very muddy, very wet, very cold. I still think I can salvage my uniform and just get my jack boots a little fuckered up.

As for the pictures of the militants, I agree, I think maybe most people can't tell the difference since they mostly used stolen gear and equipment.

True that.

I did actually contact them with my business-mailaccount, which should made them respond, but still nothing...

Maybe they've just gotten AFK or "I don't remember if my password was 123456789 or 98765431 on my mail account", on the mail-account.,,

Every time I hear the name "Chechnya" I get a chill. Only hearing and reading about the situation over there has affected my mindset, literally. But I still cannot imagine the horrors there.

True that about the militants! Ach, if it wasn't for the fallout, I'd say blast em all to hell with a big shiny light.
