I would find this a very interesting subject. I followed that war extensively and it was in all the Solider's of Fortune mags at the time. I joined the Marine Corps in August of 1979 and graduated Boot Camp November 15th 1979. On December 25th we were told about the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. This would make for a great discussion.

Valid points Richie your are quite correct the kit used in Afghan in those days will undoubtably become collectable as it does with all wars

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

I only have a couple of thousands pics from the latest conflict in Astan.
Look forward to the pics of others though.
If one should look clinically at that sad conflict, I especially look forward to seeing Russian uniforms in detail.
They had/have some undertated stuff like the 'Gorka' suits.
This should be an interesting thread!...
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
