Thanks Adrian! Nice pics. The two fellows on the Aerosan are wearing valenoks. Interesting to see that bekesha's differ in details. Some have wider collars then others. And sometimes darkbrown or dark grey fur is used for the coat lining.
Please show your pics of tankcrews wearing bekeshas. It would not have been that uncommon but generally speaking tankcrew wore other stuff to keep them warm (when inside their vehicle that is).
Since I spent almost two years of my life living inside a Leopard A2 I know a little about the subject. We always wore overalls (fur lined in winter). Partly also for safety reasons overalls have loops that enables crewmembers to be pulled out in case of an emergency. And I can tell you a leopard turret is relatively spacious compared with the rather cramped conditions inside a T-34 or KV-1.
Generally speaking a coat like the bekesha just prevents you from moving around inside.
Since you are the administrator can I ask you how I can attach pics from my own PC (documents)?
