Soviet Naval Infantry - Work in Progress
To make my Soviet Naval Infantry look more like a 1943 - 1945 force, we are going to mix and match three blister packs: Naval Infantry, Infantry in Great coats, and the Submachinegun Infantry. As the war progressed, the Naval Infantry were issued from time to time Red Army uniforms and equipment. Here are some pictures of the finished Battalion Headquarters and the Soviet Naval Submachinegun Company based on the 79th Naval Infantry Brigade commanded by Polkovnik A. S. Potapov:
I'm a retired Colonel of Infantry (Regulars by God!) who likes to play with toy soldiers. I've been married to the love of my life since 1986, I have 5 honorable sons (my geeks in training), 3 daughters-in-law, 2 dogs, and a gazillion miniatures. Hobbies include . . . wait for it . . . Toy Soldiers, Reading, Wargaming, Reading about Toy Soldiers, History, Reading about Wargaming, Gardening, Reading about History and Reading.
