    The memory is always important, but the memory of the POWER of the Motherland is never superfluous! (Too loud, but current thoughts)

    According to the recollections of a friend of mine, our military specialists learned a lot in Ethiopia. At least they began to make tracks for tanks differently.

    And my colleague was already in another Ethiopia, during the war with Eritrea, he was serving our Su-27 (guess who flew for Eritrea? That's right, cockles on Mig-29). There, the genie learned to crack, supposedly from a fever laughing .

    After his African business trips, Batey had the sayings "Ethiopian your mother!" and "Attention, negros!" laughing

      A year that way in 1985, we drank beer in a bar next to the university, the company was very international. There were several students from Angola. They understood very well in Russian "Become, Equal, Attention, B .. Su ...". Presumably, the guys were not at the desk, the Great and Mighty comprehended.

        Aha smile As Dad told, they didn’t understand Russian well, but matyugs understood laughing It was easier for them to say "Fuck yonder and get me that x ... bullshit!" than "Soldier, bring this and that from there!" laughing

    I knew one participant in those events. And not even one, but he knew one of them very well. Major Yashkov from SVVPTAU-EVAKU. The beginning department of those. training aids (TCO). Unique was a man. Although why was it? Surely, God grant him health, still alive. I have talked so much about Ethiopia that I can easily publish a storybook and become a successful writer. He left for Ethiopia as a very promising officer, captain (he let SKADs ...), and returned from there with a new rank - an oldie ... He said that the Cuban women's battalion was to blame for this ... Doros then only to the major ...

      Hmm. For some reason I don't remember. From the department of tactics, there were "Ethiopians", but I don't remember Yashkov exactly sad
      A storybook - that would be a class! So far, in my opinion, one Ulasovets has at least written something.

        Wow! Colleague!
        Major Yashkov - Head of the TCO Department. Based on the 4th floor. Underground nickname Rul. At 10-00 he was already, as a rule, no. I locked myself in my office and went to bed. His subordinates (for example, pr-k Lukin, Petrovich, a former colonel of EVAKU, retired, etc.) hung a plate on the handle of the office, drawn from the car park: "Remember the driver: steering wheel transfer is a matter of jurisdiction!"

          I drove the other day past SVVPTAU-EVAKU. It seems to be reanimated. Looted, a couple of years ago, to sockets.

    Several colleagues of my father visited similar places. As military advisers. When they returned, they kept quiet. And recently I watched the film "Russian translation", I realized something. And the pictures are cool !! And where did the special department look? I was forced to light up the film for the innocent shooting of a column of soldiers , in Minsk, in 86.

    A relative was a driver there ... he told me that the old Ethiopian grandmothers liked to rush under the wheels of cars, because according to their customs, whoever was guilty of the death of a family member, then had to support this family ... so the old grannies strove to ensure their comfortable existence families....

    He visited there when he served in the army. In '87. From Novocherkassk they sent there then. To render humanitarian aid, to starving Ethiopia. At least the political men told us so in the Union.

      I remember how the Vremya program showed the convoys with a truck full of humanitarian aid. And the drivers were all as one, in black overalls, with haircuts.

    My wife’s father was in Ethiopia thanks to such trips. It is necessary to rummage and find his pictures, where he was photographed with his comrades. There is something to see. winked

    When he was a child, they showed on TV the war in Ethiopia. I was then very puzzled: Soviet technology on both sides. Dad tried to explain who for whom and why, but I got even more confused. I decided that our tanks s3,14zdil enemies, and attacked the peaceful Ethiopian people.
