СВР Заслон (SVR Zaslon) Operator, Moscow 2020

Back again with another Spetsnaz figure, this time (my 2nd attempt at) SVR Zaslon. I’ve always loved Ranger Green/OD and this unit seems to as well.

Zaslon (Barrier or Screen) is a highly-secretive unit, which falls under the Sluzhba Vneshney Razvedki (SVR), Russia’s civilian foreign intelligence service. According to Russia expert Mark Galeotti, Zaslon was unofficially established in 1997 by a secret presidential decree before it became fully operational in 1998. According to several sources, the unit is attached to the 7th Department of Center for Self Security (CSB) of the SVR. [SOFREP]

Great bash. Love the back ground history & images, interesting how Russia structures SF. U get a feeling its a free for all, department by department.

Thanks! Yeah, it seems even more convoluted than the American system. There seem to be a lot of redundancies between departments and units.
