POTD: Russian Horsewomen of the Apocalypse

    Each day a different image from the World of Firearms. We call this POTD, short for Photo Of The Day, and it’s our daily article series where we go to great lengths trying to find the most interesting pictures out there for you. Today we go to Russia for a look at an “equestrian training lesson”.

    Do you remember our “Riding Towards Nuclear Explosion With an AK” article? Everyone on the Internet saw it, almost. This time there’s no nuclear explosion, but a lot of horses and Kalashnikovs.

    This is a so-called “photo report” from the Russian Defense Ministry. The machine-translated caption reads:

    The Equestrian Training lesson with the cadets from the Ryazan Guard Guardian High Airborne Team School named after Army General V.F. Margelov from “ARMY OF RUSSIA”.

    I’m pretty sure that after “the big bang”, if there was one, horses would be quite appreciated as transport.

    All pictures by the Russian Defense Ministry.
