Two very characterful formations today with a certain in-your-face-ediness.
Then we got a platoon of Sappers in the renowned Soviet body armour and an unhealthy amount of demolition charges:
Interesting stuff, that body armour. Of course it was mostly used in urban combat where it would be able to stop machine pistol rounds at a certain range. There are a lot of very varying reports about the usefulness of these cuirasses but looking at the limited use they probably are to be put at the more "exotic pieces of equipment" end of the spectrum.
