This is required equipment for Soviet Reconnaissance Troops participants.
All Soviet participants are required to have a Plastch-Palatka (Rain Cape/Tarp/Poncho/Shelter Half).
The Plastch-Palatka serves many purposes:
- Rain Cape/Poncho
- Shelter Half
- Fighting Position Roof
- Long Range Patrol Cache Site Cover
- Additional Blanket
- Ground Matt
- Body Bag
The Plastch-Palatka can be combined with those belonging to members of your section to make a variety of hasty structures for protection from the elements.
The Plastch-Palatka is typically carried into combat on your Veshmeshok protecting your wool blankets from wet weather conditions.
