Exists in the classes M,1,2 and 3.

That's right Greg, the only difference being that there is a red star on the Soviet ones and as seen on your example, the Cuban state emblem above the white class shield.

Cuban Paratrooper badges were soviet made and i suspect these too.

These are usually referred to as Combined Arms Badges. They were issued in 3 Classes. You can find the same basic design for Soviet, Cuban & Bulgarian soldiers. There may be others I have not seen.

Here's a nice image of the Cuban 2.Kl. badge:

Any difference between the silver and the black tanks besides color?

Hi WJT,

As far as i am aware of the colour of the tank has no specific meaning.

It certainly has nothing to do with the class of the badge, possibly a different place of manufacture now that the Soviet Union no longer exists.

Cuban militaria is not easy to find. I found a great Cuban guards badge a few years back. Great stuff shown here. Lets keep posting your Cuban badges.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
