hello all, it's been ages since i've posted anything in this forum and lately i've been somewhat busy with work plus the fact that i'm still reeling from the whole civil war fiasco plus my interest in the 1/6 world has been ....lagging ...namely by the fact that i'm stoned with so many american stuff that me wants to start doing some russian assault team ... a mate of mine was kind enough to provide with the standard ak chest rig and after looking at my standard assault team formation was thinking of doing a chest rig for the pkm gunner ...hence why i'm asking here...i've checked on google,yahoo plus militaryphotos.... and thus far i've seen no images as a point of reference ...i would appreciate if anyone could help me on this ....cheers all

PKM assault vest

Found the pictures (first two on the left) of a harness with pouches that hold 250-round PKM MG belts.

My preferred reference for russian military gear http://www.russianmilitarygear.comdoes not list a vest for carrying PKM belts or ammo boxes. This other website http://tantal.kalashnikov.guns.ru/bstvests.html does not list one either.

Theoretically a MOLLE-like vest like the one pictured here (M33 Tarzan vest) could be used with the standard 100-round PKM pouch (see the pictures to the right) as part of a gunner's loadout.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Since I don't know if you saw my post about Modern Russians stuff already,I'm posting anyways an "attemp" I made few months ago about this PKM "Smersh" vest.I'm glad that someone else is paying attention to this matter.BTW, I found with a lot of patience, some reference pics of this vest in Militaryphotos.net.The thing is they have thousands of pics to choose from...in hundreds of pages.

Ali, you're a true 1:6 artist. I remember when you first posted your pics - I was speechless!!! Your Russian troops are just awesome...and that PKM is unbelievable.

The Smersh harness/vest has basically the exact same loadout I saw in some of the 1:1pictures at the different Russian gear websites I researched. It is truly amazing. Keep up the great work.

Ali, you should consider making that PKM for sale, as well as your other custom Russian gear. I'll definitely go broke if you ever do, but it is so awesome, I just have to have it for my Warsaw Pact troopers. Go for it!!
