  1. The 3 grades. Are they really for 15, 25 and 40 years? If yes, what's the "spange" at the top for?

  9. By cockade, do you mean the markings on aircraft and tanks or cap badges?
  10. Unless Putin gifts it to minister Shoigu because he's running out of state awards to give him, I very much doubt it. The only reason I could possibly see would be if some of the now independant border states opted to combine their armed forces with Russia's...
