twin-barrel GSh-30K

The fixed guns of the Mil Mi24s seem to be a side-mounted twin barrel GSh-30k, I havent seen any Yakushev-Borzov Yak-B Gatling gun on the helicopters in the movie.

Fixed it

ZU 23?

The ZU23 is an anti aircraft gun 23mm. The primary armament of the BMP2, portrayed carrying the russian paratroopers, is a 2A42 30mm autocannon.

DShK and T-72?

In the screenshot shown T-64 tank. (Which actually never been used during the Afghan-Russo War). This tank is armed with a 12.7 mm NSVT antiaircraft machine gun.

Fixed it. Also corrected a goof that mis-identified a BRDM-2 as a BTR-60. Orca1 9904 15:59, 10 September 2011 (CDT)

Yes, you speak correctly. In the Afghan war were used only ΠΆ-62 Flexo 14:04, 26 December 2011 (CST)

"we" .... hahaha it's so funny to hear Russians talk like that. You guys are probably too young to remember how we (as in the USSR vs US) faced off on each other all the time. I remember facing NVA and Red Army troops across the barbed wire during training in West Berlin. We hated them and they hated us. How times have changed. Now, we just think each other is lame.... ;) LOL. Never thought I'd talk to people in the Russian military, but since 1990 I've talked to dozens. BTW, why no T72s in Afghanistan?

There was no necessity to use new tanks like T-72. In Afghanistan for them there were no serious targets. Besides generals protected a resource of new technics.
I was born in 1969, but didn't serve in Afghanistan, unlike many my friends. It was good luck for me because not danger of wound or death, and a hepatitis was the main danger. By the way, I don't understand, why you think, what the Soviet military men hated Americans? Yes, they were true to an oath, but hatred wasn't. And minimum of 80 % of the Soviet people (and including military men) very critically concerned the Soviet government those years. Flexo 16:11, 26 December 2011 (CST)

No T-72s in Afganistan for the same reson the US didn't send M60 PAttons to Vietnam, there weren't any enemy tanks the T-62/M48 couldn't handle and you run the risk one losing you brand-new tank to an enemy who's going to ship it gift-wrapped to their arms supplier.--Mandolin 19:17, 25 January 2012 (CST)

Possible PK machine gun

Not sure, but I think the machine gun in this picture might be an original PK rather than a PKM:

If you look at the portion of the barrel between the carry handle and the gas block, it looks as though it might be fluted, but is hard to tell from this angle. Is there ever a clearer shot of it? --commando552 (talk) 08:27, 2 October 2012 (EDT)
