    Recommended Posts

    Order 470 of the minister of defence of the Russian Federation of 1 August 2015 merges together the Air Defence Forces and Space Forces under the new designation : "Aerospace Forces".

    The extensive order contains changes to military heraldry, the basic emblem of the Air Force and all items where it appears (flags, insignia, awards, etc) are amended.

    This is the new "wings & star" insignia for caps, it replaces the old Soviet style insignia.


    The change to the basic emblem of the Air Force is the addition of an eight pointed star at the meeting place of the propeller and the cannon.



    This new insignia denotes the commander in chief of aerospace forces.  It is presented to the Commander of Aerospace Forces in a solemn ceremony by the Minister of Defence of the Russian Federation or on his behalf by the Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces - First Deputy Minister of Defence of the Russian Federation.  It is worn over the right breast pocket.
