Does anyone have any good pictures of the Armed Forces of Belarus? Also I am looking for some good info on them too. I like to read military stuff regarding Soviet tech.

An average post-Soviet Army, nothing special about it.
There are military forums for pictures of their armed forces, google it.

They are not really an average post-Soviet army in the sense that there remains a sense of honour to serve and high professionalism among the armed forces. There are no mass scandals of bureaucrats stealing a third of the defense budget, and the problem of hazing, especially as it exists among the Russian army, is not as prevalent. Under Lukashenko the Belarusian armed forces have decreased in size, but improved their technical and material capabilities. There are plenty of pictures and videos out there Eire. Just type "вооруженные силы беларусь". There's an interesting set of 'hip' commercials that came out not so long ago. Here are a couple:

-> This one is playing on the popularity of the online MMO 'World of Tanks' (developed by a Belarusian company, btw).

Interesting fact: When Belarus gave up its mobile nuclear weapons complex in the mid-1990s, Clinton promised that out of gratitude the United States would never subject the country to sanctions of any sort. Since then the the US has gone back on its word many times.
