@Trooper715 - Wicked. You're a really good cosplayer! Looks like you do some of this as a profession. I didn't know the balaclava for the uniform was something you had to look for. Then again it looks really accurate it must be another piece of Russian military gear. Impressive. Thank you for offering some help for my future cosplays!
I'm ordering a Soviet Tanker Helmet and an RD - 54. It sounds like this particular cosplay will be more challenging than I thought if that specific camo is hard to come by. Well see what happens. I just absolutely love the Tanker Helmet though. In some scenes of MGS2 one soldier was using a Sphera helmet though. Those are like helmets from Space Balls lol.
