  1. I think I can speak on most member's behalf... No, they are not sought after.
  2. The Russian Defense Ministry has authorized in excess of 350 new awards in the past 20 years. It's honestly difficult to keep track, and trust me, I've spent a quite inordinate amount of time at it! Out of those hundreds, a mere dozen are actual combat/operational awards. The outstanding majority are mere service or efficiency awards of ever-increasing levels. Many are destined for senior officials only... Interesting? Fascinating actually! Unfortunately, more often than not, on a more anthropological and political aspect rather than military.

  11. The 3 grades. Are they really for 15, 25 and 40 years? If yes, what's the "spange" at the top for?
  12. 🤣😂You have some real winners in there!! My personnal favourite, and probably the only he's really entiltled to wear: Society of Fungal Patients
  13. I couldn't agree more! When I began collecting modern Russian medals I almost went nuts. I can tell you I have a drawer full of worthless bogus, public, associative medals, even some from ministries that were awarded eventhough never approved by the ministers! Each department having its own particular awards is also nonsensical for an Armed Force so large... A medal for efficiency, OK... But a diffrent one for tankers, engineers, radiomen, submariners, etc makes no sense. I'd bet most Russian soldiers can't identify more than a minute fraction of the medals available for their service.
  14. Thank you for this. I completely missed it. Looking forward to seeing the first versions.

  16. Thanks! So not a state medal but a ministerial one from the Defense Ministry?
  17. I can't find relevant info on these puppies. Does anybody have their establishment date and award criteria per chance?
  18. Welcome to GMIC, very nice collection. If you're a grumpy old vet, you'll fit right in!
  19. By cockade, do you mean the markings on aircraft and tanks or cap badges?
  20. 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...
