In the Russian army will cancel berets

Russian military uniforms may again undergo changes. In the service of the rear of the Armed Forces of Russia they say that berets can be canceled. And the troops will again return to the wearing of caps and caps.




“Our new form (it is called“ digital ”in the troops) was, as you know, constructed on the model of the NATO form. During the last Victory Parade, the first persons of the country allegedly "expressed bewilderment" that the troops were walking in berets and in field uniform, and not in a parade with caps. The military leaders, sensitive to new trends, gave the team to work out a return to the cap for the field uniform, ”the logistics officer of the Russian army told AN.
Recall that after this parade, many famous people, including film director Nikita Mikhalkov, expressed discontent with the facelessness of the military masses.

Meanwhile, the US Army also plans to replace berets with caps. This decision is due to the impracticality of berets in the field. They do not have visors, and they do not protect the eyes from the sun. In addition, poorly absorb sweat.

Cancellation of berets applies only to field uniforms of US Army personnel. The beret will still remain an integral part of the daily form in the land forces of the country. In addition, the order to go to the cap does not apply to elite rangers and other special forces of the US Army, where berets have traditionally been considered a distinctive form of clothing.

The US Army is going to abandon the black wool berets, which are part of the field uniforms. The reason, according to the military, was the frequent complaints of soldiers who claim that berets are rather impractical, reports BBC.

In the Russian army will cancel berets


The berets were included in the field army uniform exactly 10 years ago - 14 June 2001. And since Tuesday, having existed exactly 10 years as an element of the field uniform for all army units, they cease to be such.

"That was 10 years ago and they had to be abandoned! I hate wearing a wet sock on my head. Besides, my skin is stretched because of him," Officer Mark Vino from the Lewis military base told Army Army publication McCord, located in Washington State.

The soldiers complained about the berets because, firstly, the beret must be worn with both hands. Secondly, the beret was made too hard - it was impossible to cram it into a pocket. And thirdly, it takes, unlike a kepi, did not provide either adequate protection from the sun or airing the head.

Representatives of the Pentagon said that the berets will be replaced by caps, which will form part of the field uniform. These changes will affect approximately a million military personnel. Replacing berets on caps turned out to be practical also because caps cost almost half the price they take.

The berets will remain only in those parts of the American army, with the form of which they are strongly associated and for which they serve as one of the characteristic distinguishing features, namely, in special forces, in the marine corps and among the rangers.

In addition, the berets will remain an element of dress uniform. By the way, instead of camouflage, the soldiers guarding the Pentagon will begin wearing July instead of camouflage. In due time, they ordered the soldiers to change their uniforms to combat in order to emphasize the fighting spirit of the army after the September 11 attacks.

While the American army has already gained experience with the mass use of berets and is now refusing such headgear, the command of the Russian Armed Forces has decided that there are not enough berets for Russian soldiers. In February 2011 of the year, it was announced that the berets would eventually replace the traditional Russian caps - as they wear out.

"Currently, the issue of introducing a beret is being worked out for all categories of military personnel (except for the Navy), which is to be worn with everyday and field uniforms, for the Airborne Forces and the Air Force - blue, for the combat units of the coastal forces of the Navy - for black, for the Ground Forces and other arms troops - defensive, "- said the representative of the Defense Ministry captain Vladimir Drobyshevsky.

According to him, these changes will expand the range of headdresses of military personnel when they are equipped in different climatic conditions, depending on the type of activity and the nature of service. The definition of a specific form of clothing with regard to the tasks performed is entrusted to the commander of the military unit.

      Maybe tomorrow they will say that the most comfortable headdress is a turban. And that, under the helmet gently, and the wound can be bandaged, and the prisoner hands tied, but you never know what a cloth tape is useful for. And they will train the soldier to turn it on her head in 6 seconds.

      Dear patriots. The article was written in 2011. What canceled?

    It is interesting, and when the berets were accepted, the arguments for the cause were also given there. Then the caps were sandy, so they took the berets :))) Life goes on, everything changes. After 10 years, they will switch back to berets and will criticize the caps again :)))

    Judging by such global trends, they would have left everything in place and berets and caps and caps. Changed orders in places. Paradise-cap, everyday-skull-cap, field-turban. Ten years later, this: parade-skullcap, everyday-cap, field-turban. Etc. :))) And, in general, when the cat has nothing to do .... or rather, when the furniture maker has nothing to do, he plays soldiers.

    I do not believe. It's a lie. Remove berets in the airborne. marines, in special forces. This is part of the trend of these troops.

      WWII paratroopers and marines fought without berets.
      berets appeared in the late 60s
      it's funny. that everyone who is not lazy to wear vests, even VV is SEA specific clothing, from the time of the sailing fleet.
      Let's say. thanks to the legendary Margelov, the vest took root in the Airborne Forces, but by the way, why is this?

    And to return our native caps? For the summer everyday. Although I would be in aviation.
    For the field form, the most convenient is the cap - the visor is yes.
    and the bands for the full dress look our way.
    And THAT EVERYTHING IS A PARODY OF HA NATOVTSEV.
    Look at the French parades - they have a historical parade. and this is true.
    and to go to the main parade of the country in a field uniform with accelerants. worse than a cow saddle

    when the cat doesn’t give a damn, they say it licks one place. This is how our supreme bosses either enter or withdraw. What have you learned from Skvortsova? This one, now under the peak, cuts everything, then just as energetically revives in a new way what has just been reduced. This usually happens when the leadership of their brains does not have,
