    Default Shoulder holsters ?

    Did the RKKA (or VMF, pre-1946) ever use shoulder holsters? for tank or air crewmen, for example?

    Any examples of private purchase or lend-lease shoulder holsters?

    Thanks in advance,

    I have never seen shoulder holsters used by Soviet forces in WW2.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thank you most kindly, Ade.
    I have never seen them used either, nor could I find any real reference to them.

    Thanks again,

    The only "shoulder holsters" ever used in the Soviet military, that I am aware of, are both post war, one was for the Stechkin APS automatic pistol, and one was for a suppressed version of the Makarov.

    The only variation of this that I ever saw was a picture of a pilot, using a normal TT-33 holster, but he had it tied to his harness on the front of his chest.
