This is one of my favorite Russian documentaries about the armed forces. This is a documentary about what Vymple used to be. In the early 1990s there were changes made and modern detachment that is called Vymple is not like this one. Modern Vymple functions mostly along the lines of an antiterror unit. Although, maybe we are just misinformed and simply led to believe so? Anything is possible. Maybe there is another division that we don't even know about that still does this sort of stuff. If there is, would probably fall under GRU. These guys are the types that live the action movies we watch. Trained in various special techniques all over the world. Trained to blend in when in foreign lands, extreme survival, in short, Vymple was made to be able to tackle just about anything. They are the Spetsnaz when we imagine Spetsnaz.

Watch this video to get an idea of what modern diversanty do.

Sorry, no subtitles, but I don't think you need subtitles to get an idea of of the awesomeness that is Vymple.

This ends with saying that Vymple was reinstated in 1998 under FSB.

This next documentary kind of picks up where the above one left off. This one was new to me. Interesting footage from conflict in Tajikistan and other hotspots from the 1990s and 21st century in Eurasia.

Again, no subtitles, sorry. Just take in the war footage and check out their kits.
