It seems Red Army Paratroops and Flame gunners are the least photographed of the easternfront...

So far in my searches ive found a few photos, nothing great worth saving... However this seems pretty good...

Rather odd to find so few information on the Russian paratroops. Especially considering they are the first to begin testing and training paratroops in the 1930s. Even before the Germans.

Stalin probably shot or hung everybody involved with keeping any kind of evidence. Laughing Where'nt these the purge years?
