    Default Soviet Afgan war belt?

    Hey guys.
    Got this belt today.
    The guy selling it told me it was brought back from Afganistan by a Kiwi a few years ago.
    Is it a Soviet belt from the Soviet/Afgan war?
    Any feed back would be helpful.
    Cheers

    Danger.

    Rubber impregnated canvas construction?
    Looks similar to my late Soviet era belt.
    I'll post an image when I get home.

    Could be . why not ? Usual soldier's belt used from 70s and up in Red Army. But you never know: is it come from Afghanistan or from the stocks in Ukraine for example.

    Hey.
    This is what the auction said.

    THIS BELT IS ONE OF THE LEFT OVERS FROM THE RUSSIAN WAR IN AFHGANISTAN FROM 1979 TO 1989.
    THE BELT CAME INTO NEW ZEALAND ABOUT FIVE YEARS AGO WITH A SOLDIER FROM THE ZEALAND ARMY WHO HAD BEEN THERE WITH THE ARMY.

    I hope it's true, but if not, it's still a nice belt.

    Hmm I belive Americans have an expression 'hogwash'. It will describe the auction description. How many of this belts do you need and what is your planned budget?

    I have one exactly like that brought back from Afganistan by a Army Colonel for me a few years ago. It looks identical to yours. The one I have was given to him by a Afghan soldier who said it came from a Russian KIA.
