Russian Military Dictionary

Front Cover

The purpose of this dictionary is to provide Russian equivalents for American military terms and the American equivalents of Russian terms. As far as possible, true equivalents based on current practice and usage have been given, rather than literal translations. The scope of the dictionary has been quite closely limited to military subject matter and terminology from directly related fields. Terms have been selected for inclusion mainly according to their relative importance for military purposes and the availability of authentic Russian scores of information. In the arrangement of terms, the single-entry method has been used. A straight alphabetical sequence is followed, regardless of whether any given entry consists of more one word or more. Among various equivalents for a given term, synonyms are separated by commas and different meanings by semicolons.
