Here are some very good color photographs of Soviet Soldiers in action during WWII. Their guns and weapons are seen in these photos like they've never been seen before.

. Truell breathtaking scenes.

Great find! I'm especially digging all the photos of the women soldiers. For all the backwardness and horror stories of life in the USSR, one has to admit that in some ways they were way ahead of the curve.

Coloured photos definitely change the way to view this war. I wonder how people would see modern wars if they were photographed in black and white

Excellent photos.
The englishrussia site has often got some cracking photo pages.
I remember a page of full colour photos of Russia from more than 100 years ago that stood out.
Its well worth visiting englishrussia from time to time.

Gee, you think so?

It doesn't make them less real to doctor the picture colours. How else are these pictures supposed to be coloured? Magic?

Wonderful link! I always found it hard to imagine how all those black and white photos look like with colors, especially the colored photos of the Nazis released a few months ago were amazing, all those mega red banners hanging down from high government buildings with the swastika in the middle of it all, crazy!

eh well, yes it does make them less real

seeing as the colouring is someones idea of what they "should" look like and not what they actually "did" look like

they are cool pics, but just take them for what they are

Yeah I agree. Some of them almost look fake or right out of a comic book. They are neat but I've seen better.

Good find S & F

Exactly as others said, we only see black & white because it dehumanises it, colour makes it so much more real, the people are just like you and me! Kind of makes you feel vulnerable

cool pictures 10q i wish they never end...

as we can see..ppsh and mosin-nagant are present in nearly every photo...

Ppsh had awesome power..i think it was the best sub machine gun of had everything fast..loads of reload and quite precise for such power..

whilst the mosin nagant i dont like that much..i beleive german rifles were better but thats my opinion

a nice vid i found for u XD

Great pictures. I especially love the images depicting the Burp Guns with 70 round drum magazines in action. Those drum mags. were bulky and extremely slow to load.

I always thought that those drums were phased out in favor of more reliable and easy to carry stick mags. Every burp gun in the pics had a drum mag. Interesting. I guess the soldiers preferred the drums. Interesting.

here is a pic of an open drum. Can't imagine dealing with this in a high stress situation.

The rate of fire on the PPsh is just insane. It is rated at 900rpm. That barrel could get cherry in no time.
