But what about loads of badly trained russians with AKs?

You know, the AK-47 of circa 1970 is still a perfectly good, reliable, solid weapon (in comparison to many of the more modern weapons like the M16A2, etc).

Enough bodies, with reliable heavy-hitting weapons are still a force to be reckoned with.

Well put elc. Anywho, the size of some of those missiles on that video.

EDIT: Also, is it really geeky if you can name every single tank on that video?

Another edit: Just noticed something, the weapons the Soldiers are armed with, are AKs, but not 47. They are armed with 74s, a modification of the 47 in the mid 80s.

Den pobedi.
Day of victory, may 8th when we defeated the Nazis.
Yeah watched the whole thing. Apparently this time was different from all the other may 8ths.
this time they showed all the secret weapons and stuff never seen before.
The Ak-47 is an antique. Great gun, but isn't used anymore.
Its a collector item.

Za rodinu! Urah!

Antique though it may be, the AK-47's still, to my knowledge, the single best-selling weapon in the world...

I'm still not convinced Russia's a threat. They've got a long way to go to get back to the post-WWII days when they were a major power on the world stage. Sure, they've got nukes...but that's a much less exclusive club than it was fifty years ago.

What? No the AK/47 is an antique and they dont sell em anymore.
Badly trained russians my ass. What makes us better than america and shit is not the weapons and technology but the people.
We'd get fucked in a gadgets competition but in an all out punch on, the day is ours.

Western Strike teams got all the headgear, night vision, supped up weapons and bullet proof arrmour.
Russian strike teams got 74's and ski masks.

But seriously, is it really geeky if I can name every single tank, truck and helicopter in that video?

i know that the M16A2 is not the best rifle out ther but i got to say it has been good to me. Shoots true and mine has never jammed. plus its the mag that makes it jam most of the time. if you clean it AND the mag its a good rifle. its only miss stoping power but if you can shoot thats not a prob.

ohh and on the whole no one uses ak's. tell that to the Iraqies

Agreed.

I would look to China as our biggest "threat". With 1/8th of the whole worlds population and there rate of advancment. Im not sure what our relations are with them but i would not be suprised if we are doing what we can to get in good with them.

Trust is a dagger, the hilt as sharp as the blade.
