Siberian Spetsnaz: СОБР Алмаз (SOBR Almaz), 2016

Hello again. I’m back with yet another Spetsnaz figure, this time of an operator from a fairly small SOBR team from the far north. Still working on the photo setup, so excuse the crappy pics.

Formerly under the MVD, SOBR units (Quick Reaction Special Unit - sort of like regional SWAT teams) are now under the National Guard - or, Rosgvardia - umbrella. These paramilitary units have a distinct local character and their uniforms/kit vary incredibly from place to place. Almaz is responsible for the Sakha region of Northern Siberia, an area that is 4x larger than Texas and home to just 1 million people. 25% of Sakha’s population live in Yakutsk, located 450 kilometers (280 mi) south of the North Pole.
