Russian Uniforms and Equipment

Hi there, I'm sourcing for modern russian uniforms, insignia, weapons and equipment; 90s to present day (i.e. Chechnya conflict) for a project
I'm working on. Particularly reference books along the lines of i.e. "Camouflage Uniforms of the Waffen-SS" from Schiffer Publishing, etc.

It seems that there isn't much or any reference books on this subject. I managed to find some photos of the Chechnya war but majority of them are
way too small. Osprey have a couple of books related to the subject but I'm looking for something more substantial rather than history, campaigns, organisation stuff. Color plates are good sources though. Would appreciate if anyone could point me in the right direction as to where I might find them.

Julian

I have photos of Russian troops during the tragic Beslan hostage crisis. I will not post it here as it is very graphic. Drop me an e-mail at lawrencequah@gmail.com and I will send them to you.

Hola Dave,

Gracias amigo some nice color plates there. Where did you get those from?
I could use all the help I can find as the subject is not as well documented compared to the popularity of modeling Iraqi/US conflict models.

Hi Julian
I can tell you as the military man (91-93) Russian soldiers could be dressed somehow, all depends on concrete division, in the country there was a complete chaos and carried " that that is in a warehouse ".
