Favorite Soviet Union weapon?

The B-10 recoilless rifle is a Soviet 82 mm smoothbore recoilless rifle and it could be carried on the rear of a BTR-50 armoured personnel carrier. I would love to own such a thing in my house and use it to create destruction.

I don't believe anyone who didn't answer AK-47. Its like Bugs Bunny, people claim they like other characters but he's just too ballza to not be your favorite.

I prefer the AK-74

The only Soviet weapon I know of is the 9K32 Strela-2, which was responsible during the Rhodesian Bush War (used by ZIPRA) of bringing down two civilian aircrafts in late 1978 and again in early '79. Both planes were mainly carrying white civilians. 10 survivors of the first crash were subsequently murdered on the ground.

Last year I was able to speak to a woman (who lives about 40 mins away from me) who survived the first disaster. Diana Hansen.

You're right, Dagoth and I therefore declare the AK-47 Soviet-Empire's Weapon of the Year Award. Would it win five times again? Stay tuned to find out...

Comrade Stalin is my favorite Soviet Union Weapon

I'm sure reactionary forces and the enemies of the proletariat tremble at his name.Like Adolf Hitler did back in 1939 after the signing of Molotov-Ribbentrop pact.

...or stalingrad...or the attack of Berlin...Stalin's a badass. You can't deny it

Read more about it,please.Stalin did "untie the hands" of his generals after huge RKKA losses:so the victory in Stalingrad was the result of capable generals and brave people,not "Stalin's" bureaucrats that caused 1500+ Red army planes to be destroyed on the ground during the first 3 days of GPW.The whole society of (unoccupied SU) felt a "thaw" of state violence during the war(reopening of churches illustrates that nicely,than the resurgence of "nationalism"-reminiscence of old bogatyrs,Alexander Nevsky and other heroes on posters,etc...)

And yet its Stalin's fault that so many people died during the GPW
That's a fragging retarded statement.

Trotsky is a capable general, would he have gotten credit for the victory at Stalingrad if he would've been leader? Where's TRL when you need him.

A country's decisions are made by its leaders, Bush is blamed/praised for Iraq, Stalin gets blamed/praised for WWII and defeating fascism.

Yeah really. This is like back when they were deciding whether to have the 35k surge in Afghanistan. I think McCrystal told Obama something along the lines of "My recommendation is 35000 troops but there are equally good arguments for not having a surge at all, you'll just have to pick one and go along with it."

It's not really a Soviet weapon but this has to be the coolest weapon I've ever seen in a long time. So beautiful and crafted that I would like to own such a thing if I legally could.

At least it has an ivory handle, and not a pearl one. Patton would approve!
Post 04 Mar 2010, 03:26
The handle totally ruins it.
Post 04 Mar 2010, 21:25
That gun is so kitschy and burgeoise it make me sick
Post 05 Mar 2010, 01:59
You're jealous, Dagoth. You don't have bourgeois tastes like me and you should bow to the diamond gun.

You lumpenproletarian!
