TTAG has Russian readers. One of them (hey Hyperprapor!) sends me links to Rodina Mat, tipping us off to the latest Russki advancement in firearms technology. Today’s Red Army Day, when the country honors the millions of men and women who served in what was one of the largest, most influential and most powerful armies on the face of the earth. The scope of what this army accomplished in a short time is remarkable (if often lamentable). I suggest you take a moment to reflect on the Workers’ and Peasants’ Red Army (or RKKA) and take a shot of vodka in solidarity with those brave men and women. Me, I’m off to the range to play with my Mosin Nagant M1891/30.
