      The Infographics Show also don’t say it’s the script, you drew ak-47 not 74.

      Also the bullet is different the ak-74 shoots a 5.45 round.

      How can you blame autocorrect, when the entire video just proves that you don't do research before making it?

      Then you also have to correct the determination that your "AK-47" is superior to the M-4 because the AK-74 and its variants use 5.45×39mm ammo. Plus in CQB the M-4 is more compact and thus superior. This guy is always wrong.

    Smaller bullet allows for greater access and greater range? Are you high? I normally enjoy the Infographics videos, but this one is so misinformed, on so many points, that it would be better to just take it down and redo it after completing some research.

    Russians under Putin vs Americans under Obama & Trump
    Russians 1 Americans 0
    Reason being is that America is too busy trying to downsize the military to Defense Force levels and severed the line between civilian and military life, which has watered down the effectiveness of troops doing their job.

    The real issue is that Americans have and will continue to be soft ass wimps crying over their hurt feelings. WWll era was hard ass American men. It's hard to call the pussies today man at all. I believe Russia has a big advantage there. Yes, the U.S.A has a better military, but I don't see the boys being able to fight like the men could do 40yrs ago. We may have to send what men we do have and our women. The women are getting tougher than the men here.

    This is such a loaded question and an impossible one to answer. In terms of the us, Russian army alone I’ll just say Americans do have better equipment and longer ranges rifles, but if the war was taking place in Europe they would obviously have the strategic advantage over the us. Being a little biased as I’m in the military I think American tactics are better and that’s what it comes down too, tactics.

    This is so BS. Do some more research before making any info videos. How can you compare US troops to soviet troops? You are not even comparing US troops to military of Russian Federation, which are modernized. And how can Korean peninsula be considered as "intense"? There's barely any action at the DMZ. Furthermore, why are you forgetting about Syria? Russia's latest military experience isn't Afghanistan. That would be for Soviet Union. But modern Russia has seen action in Syrian civil war.

  • SuperParatech

    Terrible comparison. Waste of time watching this. Far too many assumptions were based upon old stereotypes, particularly with the Russian rifle from decades ago compared to the US M4. What about personal training? Fitness? Moral? Have you seen the Russian forces today? The example of the Iraqi forces is disingenuous. Iraqis have for years been trained and equipped by USA. They still run and the still break. It is the structure of their army. Whereas an American soldier can wrap himself patriotically in mom, the flag and Apple pie; Arabs don't hold state loyalty in the same regard. Their loyalty is to blood relatives, extended relatives, tribal /cultural links, Religion, area ........... flag/nation/president are very low on a long list. An Iraqi soldier will defend his home - not the flag. This is why militias formed regionally have proven successful against ISIL. Men were fighting with their friends/cousins or even brothers. This is more powerful in their culture than symbols such as flags. So - this destroys the entire premise of Russian training of Iraqis and the conclusion that Russians are inflexible. Russian is converting to a leaner volunteer force that is comparable to western armies. Living conditions are much better, pay, terms of service, conditions, food - hence moral is much better. Again, incorrect assumptions made using stereotypes from Soviet Era. What about the individuals? What is combat training like today? How do they compare? What are their skills? How fit to do the remain? How long is training? What are typical loads carried by the infantry? What kit are they NOW issued with? This is Americanised hyperbole with no relevant analysis.

  • Nicholas Pugh

    Well it would be a fight!
    The Americans would fight to win and the Russians would fight to survive. The question no one ever talks about is who would replace the soldier who gets killed. Yes America has been in multiple battles throughout the last 20 years. And Russia has as well. Not as much as the Americans.
    Let think about this. This would be considered a peer to peer war! You would look at 1000-30000 people dying a month. You can talk about how great the weapons are or how prepared the soldiers will be but if your best weapons and best soldiers die or get injured in the first year then who replaces those good soldiers and can they fight like those that have given all. I think America is the only one who can send soldiers to replace those that have fallen with a fighting chance. Russia, as big and mighty it is does not have the communication and leadership to train soldiers from the bottom up.

    Russian soldiers fighting 1000 years! Russian soldiers are not afraid of death. The war with Hitler proved that every 4 citizen of the country is a war! Everyone who came to war with Russia, remained a fertilizer on earth! War in Iraq was necessary for capture of resources! There were launched more than 10,000 rockets that have fallen off the face of the earth, to the entire city! How can you say that you're better at fighting or launching missiles at a safe distance! Remember how on TV LIH CUT and burned people in Syria, was captured 80% of the territory! Only 2 years of Russian soldiers with the Iranians returned under the control of 95% of the territory! Why the last aplot terrorists Idlib, protects US? Think for yourself!

  • Mike Johnson

    The Infographics Show: I am a German/Russian American and a veteran, USMC Mos 0203 ground intelligence. First of all where is this fictitious war being fought on Russian or American soil? You forgot to mention that Russia is a homogeneous society, the soldiers all over 80% of Russians are ethnic Slavs. USA is a heterogeneous and diverse society. American soldiers are used to diversity and have a unique way of thinking. Russian soldiers are robots, I have family who are currently in Spetsnaz. I can tell you have a Russian bias, my dad was an officer in the Red Army but guess what this is not almost 30 years ago.Furthermore, the AK47 is very inaccurate and I am an expert Marxman rifleman(not Karl Marx sharp shooter). I prefer the M16 or hell I'll take the AR10, a semi automatic ifle American civilians can purchase over the AK 47 because of it's accuracy issues. As for technology and military combat experience, that is hands down advantage USA. Russia's only major conflict was Afghanistan, USA had the Vietnam War, Desert Storm, war in Iraq and Afghanistan. If USA and Russia are going to go to war it is not going to be the traditional warfare you are thinking of. They will either have a proxy war, use other countries to start conflict or a ciber correct.

    How about no war and no comparison. This video compared history against history. Today is not history. The USA has had an all volunteer military since 1973. Russia still has conscripts who only fight on Russian soil. Russia has volunteers who fight where needed. Mobility goes to the USA. Experience goes to the USA. On neutral ground, the US Soldier is superior. But, if the fight is on Russian soil, the odds go to Russian winters and Russian soldiers. But, we never have to worry about that because both sides will use nukes if they are losing so individual soldiers don't matter.

    The 5.56 round is designed to inflict damage not kill!
    1 injured soldier will remove 2 to 3 soldiers from combat and that is not counting the injured soldier. If a soldier is forced to leave a buddy on the battlefield it has an exponential detriment effect on moral of the unit.
    War is more than just killing!

    This video totally sucked. The weapons descriptions were all screwed up, and the part about comparing Russian and American experiences in Afghanistan was way off base. The US didn’t roll into Afghanistan starting out with massed columns armor vehicles like you said, it start off with very small special forces teams being inserted and working with the northern alliance to overthrow the Taliban. And I thought it was hilarious that you started off comparing Russian and American soldiers by saying the best way to do so was looking at their individual infantry rifle‘s. The quality of training and aggressive spirit in a soldier counts for far more than what rifle he is caring. A well trained and motivated soldier Can make use of many different types of rifles and still be effective, however a poorly trained and poorly motivated soldier will still lack affectiveNess on the battlefield no matter what weapon you give him.
