Russian Military Police Commandos look just like SOCOM.
The above photos are the latest "hotness" floating around Russian Military Blogs. It shows Russian Military Police Commandos on exercise.
What is amazing is how you would be hard pressed to tell them apart from US SOCOM. That camo pattern at least in these pics looks just like MultiCam. They're driving UltraLight Weight Vehicles that resemble Polaris RZRs that SOCOM and the 82nd are so in love with now.
They're even wearing Ops Core helmets...or a decent knock off...even down to the rails for attachment of lights etc...
The only thing that shows them to be "other" is weapons fit...and SOCOM likes working out with Polish forces and they use similar weapons.
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then SOCOM should be happy as hell. They've become so joint that even potential opposition forces are on board their initiatives/concepts.
