The Pentagon intends to purchase full-size dummies of Soviet weapons

The US Department of Defense intends to purchase a batch of full-size mockups of various designs weapons Soviet-made, the corresponding request for commercial proposals has already been placed. This is reported by RT with reference to the document.


According to the published request, the dummies supplied are intended for the Fort Benning military base in Georgia, where they will be used for the training process of the American military, including the development of their "skills in handling enemy weapons."

This proposal is currently not funded, but funds are expected to be received for its implementation.

- the document says.

It is noted that the US Department of Defense will consider all applications received, while likely suppliers are advised to hurry up in order to have time to submit a request and receive an answer to it.

The Pentagon is interested in full-size models of RPG-7 grenade launchers, Strela-2 air defense systems, Kalashnikov assault rifles and machine guns, SVD Dragunov sniper rifle, F-1, RGD-5 and RG-42 grenades.

According to the application, all items must be made of heavy-duty urethane to “withstand years of training”. Models should be delivered in "handcrafted from solid wood, olive-colored boxes with a designation of the type of weapon and batch number in Russian."

        I think this piece of painted plywood is more expensive than that kamikaze drone, that's the point of such a drone - it's cheap and effective

          oh well, nonsense. An article came across the network that for $ 200 thousand you can order a life-size model of the Tiger. Well, this is a model with a certain certainty in the details. And then there are two sheets of plywood and 4 boards of forty ... No. her dear can only be made by the hairy paws of military buyers

            they use Turkish drones kamikaze Alpagu

            it is really small, lightweight 3,5 kg and cheap, this is the meaning of what is cheap and angry, and if you count how many real goals they undermined, then 1 model does not make the weather at all

    Models should be delivered in "handcrafted from solid wood, olive-colored boxes with a designation of the type of weapon and the batch number in Russian."

    And then these boxes full of these urethane products will be found all over the world and yelling about clandestine Russian arms shipments.

    I would like to see the reaction of the Pentagon, if an order for the purchase of dummies, for example, Abrams, Petriot, etc., was placed on the MO website in the Russian Federation.

      In 2014, I was offered to buy a PM for $ 50 on the market in Chernigov.

        Something is quite cheap
        in the 90s in Moscow it was possible to buy a Chinese TT and 2e clips from 60 to 100 bucks, the 2e clips he withstood and then fell apart, an excellent choice for a killer or self-defense.
        Mabe tried to throw you in Chernigov?

          Anything can be. I did not try to check, tk. the prospect of carrying the barrel through two customs offices was not impressive. A colleague at work, under similar circumstances, was offered to buy an AK for $ 200.

    With dummies is understandable. And why have you forgotten about the "Manual on shooting" AK, SVD, RPG? In the Soviet (Russian) army, the principle of training is the same: story-show-training. How does RUMO work if it doesn't know basic things?

    they will be used for the training process of the American military, including the development of their "skills in handling enemy weapons."

    And do they not want to get acquainted with our T-90, Armata, Mi-35, Ka-52, Su-35, Su-57, etc., etc.?
    Otherwise, the Yankes will have an erroneous opinion that the Russians in the army, in addition to RPG-7 grenade launchers, Strela-2 air defense systems, Kalashnikov assault rifles and machine guns, Dragunov SVD sniper rifle, F-1, RGD-5, RG-42 grenades and a cocktail There is nothing more Molotov and they will trample us with a fool on their super Abrams and Fi-35s.
    Look for them then fistulas ...

    There is a year and a half left until the ix hour, or it will flare up in 23 or in February 24, I can't say for sure, but I know there are 1,5 years +/- 5 months left, the States are thoroughly preparing for the invasion, at first they will trample ghouls and satellites and all oddities , then connect the USA!

      Probability below sea level. The United States does not have a total superiority in military technology to win by blitzkrieg. Their limotrophs, all the more so, at the first jerk, they will receive such a slap on the head in their logistics and industry that further movement forward will lose all meaning. The American missile defense system is not at all an assistant here, but rather a cross on the forehead.
      There are two possible military scenarios with the participation of the Russian Federation and the United States: a conventional local conflict of low intensity outside the territory of the Russian Federation (which is easy to extinguish), and a global total Armageddon where all available stocks of carriers and warheads will be used (when the thread is completely ripped off). Some of the BGs will be reserved for licking neighbors, but these are details.
      In the short term, Belarus is near the western block. Creation from a seized new bridgehead, consisting of former fraternal, Russophobic aggressive proxy. Provocations against the Russian Federation in order to create an undisclosed image of the enemy and the "dark force". Subversive, ideological work with increased economic pressure for the growth of discontent within the Russian Federation.
      The West never went full-length on the attack; to tighten the loop, he used and will use the enemy's weaknesses and flutters. I made a mistake and jerked - I lost my strength to resist; weakened the resistance - the serpentine rings tightened even more. And countering this by waiting will not work. No one will have enough forces of their own against the cooperated flock, and the West perceives the Russian Federation as a lonely weakened prey. No one will come to the rescue without a clear ideology and self-interest. These are all the same animal habits and instincts, but multiplied by the aggressiveness of the intellect of the homo sapiens.
