    Soviet Paratrooper Badge

    Recommended Posts

    • 2 weeks later...

    It's what's referred to as an M68 badge; as in instituted in 1968 (replacing the M55).

    There were/are three grades: basic (as shown here), 'Excellent' and 'Instructor'.

    Also, there are earlier and later versions of this M68 badge based on minor variations of the airplane on the badge.  This version looks to be a later model.

    edit: added an image of common Soviet para badges.  Earlier versions on top, later versions descending.
