"Watch "Caravan Hunters" RU TV series English subtitles

Recommended Posts

SpetsNaz, I think, vs muj in 1986. Russians are desperately trying to interdict Stinger shipments and capture a sample. Lots of war toys, including Mi-24V HIND/D. Really well done show, with real characters, not caricatures. Am finding this more than a bit surreal, for I was at Rockwell then and can well recall the electric sense of excitement we all felt in Operations Analysis when we got DOD Betamax footage of a muj downing a MI--17 HIP with a Stinger, We knew this would have a profound impact on Russian ability to use air power, especially helos.

Binge watched it, pretty refreshing after the cheese of modern Russian war flicks and the nihilism of 90s Afghan movies. Thanks!

Kinda makes me wish we had the tools in CM:A to do a TOC style scenario.....It would suit the game a treat.

Yes.  That would be cool. :)

You really do find the oddest things JK!  ;)

Or is it that they find me?! The desert uniforms in the show baffle me, since they really stand out against the terrain--until they get dusty, dirty or both. Was expecting this sort of attire.

I've just watched the first episode. It's quite interesting. Thanks for the heads up JK.

BTW I've on my "to watch" list on Netflix "Tell Spring not to come this year", a documentary about tha ANA. Has anybody checked it already?

Just watched the first one... all I can say after watching them ambush the convoy, is 'Fred Karno's'...

It's entertaining in it's own way, but the Soviet elite forces are probably not to happy to see them portrayed as this bunch.

Trooper117,

I don't understand the reference. Please explain. Thanks!

Put it this way John... if I had demonstrated on my platoon sgt's battle course that the ambush was to be conducted in the fashion shown in the movie, I'd have been on the first transport out of Brecon...

Inagree with Trooper.  I turned it off after the first few minutes. Maybe the rest was well done, but the ambush was pretty stupid and the FX, etc.  was not too impressive either.

i saw Tell Spring Not to Come This Year.

Didnt really grip me. I dont know. Im sure some would find interest in it.

It certainly reinforced my feeling its a hopeless war Americas fighting there.
