Again, get a cap ...

Again, get a cap ...



Either the insult of the paratroopers and marines leaped, or the words that only the head was sweating from such an accessory led to the Defense Ministry deciding to unexpectedly abandon the berets for the servicemen. By the way, the word unexpectedly is quite appropriate here, since, according to the old Russian custom, everything connected with the army seems to be forever. And then look: didn’t have time for 9 in May, we could see some kind of mushroom military personnel with different hats in the form of multi-colored berets marching across the main square of the country, and the idea of ​​beretising everyone and everyone decided to light a red light. Valentin Yudashkin, who was the author of this beret revolution in the Russian parts, was accused by many high-ranking military men of not understanding anything in military life and, in particular, in military uniform. A well-known couturier was told that he should have been doing his experiments on the podium of a fashion house, and our army is far from fashion. The remoteness of the army from fashion is really impressive. It should be said that in some parts of the military in the winter time, instead of a new pea jacket, they can get a coat in which their fathers, and possibly grandfathers, also fought.

So what does not fit takes military officials and servicemen of lower rank. Representatives of the Land Force told the publication that they did not like berets in a cap more familiar. In most parts, warm woolen berets came in the summer and it was corny hot in them. To keep the berets on the head, they need to be fixed with a special cord that is tied at the back of the head, and put on with both hands, pulling on the head. With a gun in his hands it is quite difficult, the infantrymen admit. "The berets are show-offs of paratroopers and marines. But even they go to combat missions wearing caps," the commander of one of the elite land brigades stressed.

Also, the paratroopers denied the statement of the land colleagues, which takes uncomfortable. "If you wear it correctly, this is the best headdress. It fits easily under the shoulder strap if you need to go into the room. You can't do this with a cap," said the representative of the landing troops. He said that each paratrooper carefully prepares his beret: he pulls it onto the jar, beats off the edges of the dumbbells, arches over the cockade; wearing a beret is a special technology that is passed down from generation to generation and ordinary infantrymen cannot understand it straight off.

Although, knowing our generals, I must say that they would hardly have been stopped by the complaints of a simple soldier. Perhaps the thing is different. Then what?

It turned out that servicemen of special units began to complain that everyone in the army had the honor of wearing a distinctive accessory of elite units. The airborne troops allegedly stated that they did not intend to endure such humiliation, seeing as a soldier of engineering troops or a rocketman walking around in a beret. They say that it takes - it is a sacred thing for every paratrooper or marine, so putting it on the head of a soldier of another kind of troops is a real blasphemy.

Honestly, such a position can hardly be called a worthy basis for the form entered six months ago so it was soon decided to replace the old one with a more familiar one. In this regard, a completely different reason for the restoration of caps and hats appears. And this reason goes into the economic plane, and not into the plane of honor and dignity of a certain group of officers and soldiers.

There are people in our army who have for years established close cooperation with enterprises engaged in sewing military uniforms. And then suddenly comes a high order that, they say, the form needs to be changed. And to change the shape is to admit new faces in the person of the same Mr. Yudashkin to the troop trough. Such a “admission” led to the fact that it was necessary to transfer part of the funds allocated by the state to the “other uncle”. Therefore, at first, interested parties under the pressure of the law could not give a fitting rebuff to innovations, and then, after a while, they came up with a way out how to remove outsiders from the field of their business. Immediately there were people who suddenly became knowingly interested in the soldiers: "How bad you must be, son, in this thick woolen beret!" And then the same people asked the paratroopers and marines: “Doesn’t it make you angry that some policeman will go to the beret?” And they answered in chorus: “Of course, they do!” That's how it was formed protest general opinion about how bad these berets are.

If the berets are so bad, then why didn't these people immediately let Mr. Yudashkin know that the accessory he designed does not suit the Russian army? Why did not the veterans and current officers of the Airborne Forces immediately say that they would not put up with the fact that instead of caps someone would be wearing a beret, shaming the honor and dignity of a soldier of elite units? However, for some reason, everyone was either silent or admired by the beauty of the new military uniforms. Just at that time, apparently, the interested parties were still thinking how to snatch the next financial piece during the large-scale “disguise” of the Russian troops. After all, it could also happen that part of the funds will again go along the beaten track of corruption into the pockets of the “wealthy”. But the money went some unknown way. And when these people found that the accounts of the firms under their control began to become empty, they had to arrange this whole performance with soldiers with sweating heads and discontent with the “blue berets”.

Therefore, we did not even have time to see our army well in all its glory from the well-known couturier, when again the soldiers would have to dress in old worn uniforms, the rejection of which, almost did not deprive someone of a good trough. And we all know very well that even though the fight against corruption in our country is taking leaps and bounds, but those who want to warm their hands and other places in the budget millions are not diminishing. Revision of military uniforms - a vivid example.

    Of course, to entrust Yudashkin with the development of a new form was as meaningless as if he asked Picasso to camouflage armored vehicles.
    Well, you can still get along ... :-))

    In fact, in two ways, really. Airborne troops have a special selection, and they do not sweat their heads, while the rest of the army immediately began to sweat.
    I myself, even though I did not serve in the elite, but I think that they got excited with berets. It happened so historically - let it remain so. There is a soldier in the beret - so worthy of it. Sorry, we went to the caps, we went to the caps, and nothing ... no one died.
    There is no doubt that there will be another “cut”. They gave one a bite, now another.
    But, to be honest, this kind of rubbish was sculpted by Yudashkin ... Tsereteli military fashion. Would sit, put on stars and not climb where it is not necessary.

      Yudashkin, served in the topographical troops, where, according to his memoirs, he was engaged in improving (suturing) trousers and tunics, weaving accessories, combing overcoats, in short, a soldier was preparing for war

          Vadivak, I was present at the moment when a friend in the flower shop was choosing flowers for this undergrowth (she was invited to some gathering with him), and so, she took into account his fagot orientation when choosing without any jokes.

    Well, not the first time they stole it. It is worth recalling Mercedes Pasha and his comrades, who, despite the overwhelming stocks of their everyday uniforms and a chronic shortage of funds, even managed to symbolize democracy, introducing a new everyday and full-dress uniform, even for food.

    As far as I remember, a beret is simply not given, it must be earned. In one book, as a young man I read about green berets, it contained such verses "silver wings on their chest, America’s brave guys color, a hundred people will pass the test , only three will get the green beret. "Well, something like this, maybe I messed up with some words.
    My friends who served in the Airborne Forces and the Marine Corps proudly put on their berets and show them to their children on holidays. Like those who served in the Navy, they show off their caps. And the fact that they made comics in berets from the army is a shame.

    Full x * rnya. What shoulder strap is it more convenient for a paratrooper to shove when entering the room? According to the combat regulations, a soldier must hold a hat in his hands. Shoulder straps now on the chest and on the sleeve. And if the conversation about the berets goes into the plane of the "distinctive accessory of elite units", then I dare to recall that this "accessory" in the tank troops was always only as an element of the working form of clothing (overalls). And what is characteristic is black.

        The army is needed not for parades, but for the defense of the State.
        Therefore, military uniforms should be sewn not by famous couturiers, but by specialists.

    And explain to me that there dumbbells beat off? This is fabric ...

    By the way, about the wool - they gave me a cap somehow (civilian). So, despite the fact that she is summer, she has wool in her composition, which surprised me. And it’s not hot in it, because the fabric is cellular and blown. But why is there wool? I don’t understand Chesslov.

    But shoulder straps, shoulder straps, why did they remove them from the shoulders? Sheer stupidity! True, now everyone is wearing epaulets. But epaulets are a symbol exclusively of the military. Historically, they came with knightly armor as a defense of the shoulders from sword blows. It is amazing how the current military leaders allowed this ladies couturier to disfigure a military uniform in such a way. And for me, the Soviet cap was the best field headgear. In them, our fathers and grandfathers won the Great Victory. And all these caps, baseball caps and poch. - not ours, not ours.

      The pilot is a pretty wacky hat for the infantryman, especially in the south, where the sun dazzles. It is called that because for pilots.
      And if shoulder straps are not visible under the bronik, let's remember the Red Army, the insignia was worn on the collar. What is bad?

        Yes, nothing. It was normal to be seen.

        The next step of our "couturier" will probably be to move the shoulder strap to the hlyastika area ... So that it can be immediately seen how many times to kiss ... I would not be surprised at this next step, on the basis of who puts his hand to the developments.
        Well, at least a hand ... It could be worse.

        Well, that’s why even during the Red Army in Panama, a panama was introduced for the military, which survived almost unchanged until the war in Afghanistan. My opinion is that the cap could have been left as a smart headache. The government will not return to the insignia and form of the Red Army (I believe that the form of the Red Army at the beginning of the war was very beautiful and convenient) because this is a step towards totalitarianism! am

        PS Someone in the know, in our USSR it was kind of like a whole special institute that was developing a military uniform. Why didn’t you resort to his services?

        PS 2 I still don’t really like modern airfield caps. Look at the cap of an officer of the Red Army and what is now. Darkness...

    as I understand it, now only for those who are already on the demobilization, Picasso can even develop a form === the main thing is that the trial part successfully passes all the tests (field, drill, etc.), otherwise they took the form into series, and now they it’s neither, then Nisho, who signed the acts, let him answer

    I went through a marines for two years, I’ll say one thing, it’s more convenient than a visor. And that’s it. But the current hanging shoulder straps on the chest and so on ... Why? In fact, what, no more problems? Instead of camouflage, there is some kind of green speck, in general, a military man or a partisan, or someone else will fall into this form. And let the couturier put on the Kremlin regiment, then "flag into his hands."

    I don’t think that the pagon on the chest is comfortable, you can immediately see who is in front of you, otherwise you will come to the officer’s memory, and he’s closing his collar on a pea coat halfway, and who’s he, an old man or a captain, but of course they’ve removed them from the vain, with shoulder straps more beautiful, especially with metal inserts))
    At the expense of the greatcoat. It was canceled in vain, I spent two winters in Transbaikalia and did not freeze up, put on a pea coat and immediately froze, I ended up without padded jackets)) Beautiful form, from the films I saw a pre-revolutionary officer overcoat, probably the best option from overcoats, with a hood.
    About berets. I didn’t wear it, and I think this is a headdress for special troops and not for the whole army, I think it is more practical than a cap, I threw it on my head and that's it.

    It takes, like a vest, for the Airborne Forces, Special Forces and Marines, in fact, not an empty phrase, but a symbol of military valor and belonging to special (due to difficulties and nothing more) troops. Actually it was a shame. But in the field mode, we really use a cap, and always take it with us, according to tradition and to the “last resort”. Eldashkin is a glamorous reptile, a podium imperfection. Those who allowed him to military uniforms are marginalized from the army. The fact that the berets for all canceled is good !. For the fact that the people’s money wasted in vain - under the trial of scoundrels!

    Marine Corps Special Forces Black Sea Fleet:
    Nonsense, that the sweat from the beret is sweating, the thing is different: there is nothing for anyone to wear berets!
    Landing with the Marine Corps, this is the right hump and then deserve it!
    Takes only in dismissal, etc. they wore caps, and at the exits, they all wore caps (it’s with a visor and is simply more comfortable than a beret).
    Although he takes it in a satchel - it was with everyone that there was something to die with dignity.

      I completely agree. Beret needs to be earned with blood and sweat. When I got to the combat unit after training, I went for 6 months with combined arms badges. After 6 months, I got the patch of my unit, and after a year of service I took it.

    I think it takes, this symbol of the courage of the marines, paratroopers, must remain in the army! After all, our enemies are clearly afraid of our guys in berets! Even purely psychological, our guys take obliges you to be strong and not lose heart, and the enemies shiver at the enemies only at the sight of it!

    I have a duty in the Bundeswehr, I wore a beret for 5 years and I will say that for the convenience of socks, there is no headdress better. In summer it is not hotter than in a cap; in cool weather it is warm.
    One drawback, nevertheless, is that it takes more care than a cap .... takes it is afraid of rain and gets wet a little (it needs to be corrected again, it can be washed only in warm water and manually .... squeeze out by no means!
