Russian Military Speech to help everyone get into character as we try to be milsim

When given an order you reply “tahk tochna” It is an affirmative that roughly translates to 'thats positive' or 'thats clear' When given an order to the group, this answer is also used.

When called by your name, you reply “yehst” When you are given an order you can also use this as your confirmation. It is equivalent to 'yes sir' but the literal translation is more of 'have it'

'Fire' is literally and figuratively translated as “ah-g-ny” Alternatively the phrase “stree-lyat” can be used, which directly translates to 'shoot'

A call to arms, or alarm, is “tree-voga”

March is an easy command, because it is very similar, “marsh”
shagum marsh is a command to march/walk/single time
bee-gom marsh is a command to march quickly or run, maybe even double time


More to come as requested or as I remember.

Smirna = order to attention
volyna = order to at ease (after troops were at attention)

When order was given, answer should be "est' "-equivalent to "yes, sir"
When called out, answer is " ya" - I'm
Sorry, but "strelyat' " command does not exist, only "ogon' "

are there things that are yelled out when doing fire & maneuver? If one is providing cover/suppression fire so that the the other can advance or change position, does the first guy yell something to the equivalent of 'firing' and the other yell something to the equivalent of 'moving' (the idea is they switch it up, taking turns giving cover and moving).

you can't just use word "strelyat" by itself it has no meaning. You can use it in the sentence but not by itself.

Please share some correct field commands.

Like what you yell when you've made contact from a particular direction. What is yelled when doing fire and maneuver action. Any other commands and responses that might be relevant.

I'm not sure that learning russian commands would be useful for a team, simply because as you know russian language is very complicated. You can say in many different ways same thing.
We getting fire from Norh-
Po nam strelyaut s severa.
Nas obstrelyali s severa.
Vedet'sya ogon' s severa.
and many other ways. To be mention that in real deal everybody using a lot of BAD language (Mat) :)

So when making contact its referred to the cardinal directions, not left/right or on the face of a clock style?

well you have to remember that Russia is a very large country with many diverse native populations and immigrants. That all translates to many accents. If you speak to various Americans you will find similar things, that they don't seem to sound alike.

You have to develop an ear for the core of the language and then approximate per accent.

But lets try to keep this particular thread to Russian Military Lingo only. We do have another thread for basic Russian.
