Modern Shtrafbat doc

Recommended Posts

If war comes, these men will be on the bleeding edge of it. As in, they'll bleed, whether attacking or defending. Believe we can safely conclude this is a carefully managed look at the Shtrafbat, considering what we already know of what simply being a Russian recruit is like. GRU defector Suvorov/Rezun spent harrowing 10 days (or was it more?) in a Penal Company (not yet an officer, else a Penal Battalion) because some general loved punishing the guards if they weren't inhumanly snappy in recognizing him and saluting him.
