Hi everyone I just happened to find this video on youtube where Putin checks what appears to be guns from rebels.

I was amazed at the fact it directly reminds of JA2, because of the diversity of the weapons, diversity in origin,age from older to newer, and general aspect:



Looks like JA2 was even more realistic that what it meant to be big grin

The strong presence and, on a much stronger scale, positive depiction of Wladimir B217590 incl villians
and the fact that the vids source is a government sponsored "news" outlet known for its propaganda,
suggests to me that the message is at least partially political, rather than merely portraing the arms diversity of rebels.

Pics of captured weapon piles without officials(from whatever fraction;) that are presenting themselves would have done a better job, imho.

With a given source's known background of using a games screen captures as a "video footage", you'd better ensure first if they arent a sprites of captured weapon piles.
On the other side it at least righteously belongs to this place, due to the same background.

This looks like a good thread to detect people brainwashed with russophobic propaganda, though I must agree this video is far from being a good source for the declared purpose as it mostly shows Russian officials and Russian weapons used in Syrian campaign. I'm sure there should be somewhere on the internet tons of images of weapons used by local Syrian forces.

It seems to be common for civil wars - people use everything they could find, for example in the early stages of Ukraine conflict in 2014, rebels used all kinds of weapons from civilian shotguns to SKS rifles and WWII era PTRD antitank rifles (which are still very effective against light armored vehicles). In less advanced countries people would use much more rarities - I heard in Afghanistan people used even old rifles designed in 19 century.

For anyone interested in the topic without any ancillary dog-and-pony shows, I recommend pages like http://armamentresearch.com , https://www.calibreobscura.com and the related twitter feeds of people trawling the local ...ahem... inofficial markets. It is definitely true that the whole thing makes JA2 look much more realistic - there's pictorial evidence of anything from Stg44's to F2000's, tacticooled AK's and brand new AR's and maybe most interesting, local craft produced anti material rifles up to and including 23mm.
