Morally Outdated?

A few days ago the Russian Defense Minister, Anatoly Serdyukov, began a firestorm of controversy in Russia (and in the blogosphere) by saying that the Kalashnikov and Dragunov SVDs sniper rifles are “morally outdated”. He made it worse by saying he was thinking of buying foreign weapons.

Somehow I don’t think these guys in this recruiting video for the Russian airborne, the VDV (vozdushno-desantnie voiska), would agree.

I still like my AK-74 but think those blue berets and blue-striped undershirts are a little…uh, different.
