Military equipment of the period of the war in Afghanistan 1979-1989
During the Cold War, the Soviet Army was preparing for a military clash with NATO countries in Europe. The war in Afghanistan has become a serious challenge to Soviet soldiers and their equipment.
 During the war in Afghanistan, the command instructed to develop a new form for the army, which was to replace the form of the 1969 model. After the new form was developed, she immediately went to units located in Afghanistan, for which she received the characteristic name "Afghan."
 The Afghan was produced both in the winter version and in the summer version. Later, the style of this military uniform was used in the Armed Forces in other colors and with some constructive changes.
The footwear among the Soviet soldiers in Afghanistan differed depending on the division to the unit, this was influenced by a variety of factors: the commander, the type of division and army, problems with supply.
Headgear of the period of the war in Afghanistan is also widely known as Panama "Afghan" and cap "Afghan", since they were specially designed for soldiers in Afghanistan and had a characteristic coloring. Also, soldiers used the legendary hat with ear flaps.
In addition to clothing, the war in Afghanistan has become a catalyst for developing the latest means of individual armor protection.
The bullet-proof vest 6B1, which became the main bulletproof vest among soldiers in Afghanistan, was not suitable for the conditions of fighting in this country. Moving in the mountains and the weight of body armor (about 5.2 kg) had a very negative impact on the fighting efficiency of soldiers, and therefore the command decided to abandon the bulletproof vests of this model. To replace the 6B1 at the NII Stali in 1981, a new body armor with a 6B2 index was developed.
The bullet-proof vest 6B2 consisted of two interconnected covers for armored elements. Features of the connecting structures made it possible to adjust the waistcoat to the dimensions of the fighter.The waistcoat perfectly coped with protection from splinters, as well as pistol bullets, but made its way from the Kalashnikov assault rifle. The weight of the bulletproof vest was less than that of the predecessor (from 4.2 to 4.8) and differed depending on the size.
In 1983, the Research Institute of Steel developed a flak jacket, which was given the index 6B3.He possessed 3rd class of protection, but at the same time his weight was 12.2 kg. Later, a modification was developed in which some structural elements were replaced, and the weight of the bulletproof vest approached 8 kg.The modification carried the index 6BZT.With a large mass, this bulletproof vest can be called innovative for the Soviet army, as, among other things, it had integrated pouches, that is, it was a bulletproof vest with an unloading system.Pouches and mounts on the bulletproof vest provided the opportunity to carry 4 stores for AK / RPK, 4 hand grenades, a gas mask, a radio station.
If the constructors were developing new bulletproof vests with great enthusiasm, then this can not be said about the helmets. In Afghanistan as a helmet used helmet NL various modifications which differ podtuleynym device. The protective properties and design of the dome repeated the model SH-39, then the SH-40, then the SH-54, the secondary SH-60 and the secondary SH-68 (which had the modifications of the SH-68M and the secondary SH-68N) was developed.The last model (SH-68) lasted the most in armament in the army and was used even in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
Unloading systems during the war in Afghanistan - this is one of the most acute topics for discussion when it comes to soldiers equipment.Soldiers used as a discharge as a belt on which it was possible to place pouches for AK, a small infantry shovel, a flask, and trophy "Chi-Kom", which were produced in the Asian region.Among the soldiers it was also a large number of masters of their craft, that of the cloak-tents, backpacks and military veschmeschkov RD-54 makes a complete handling system to fit there needs.Such unloading systems were sometimes supplemented with pouches for AK mags.
