Poor sourcing on the current articles, a lot of pre-2000 and indeed pre-1990 material being used. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.123.149.103 (talk) 11:20, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

WWII aftermath/Cold War[edit]

This article has a section called 'After World War II', followed by one called 'Cold War'. I propose to remove Cold War material from the section that precedes the 'Cold War' section. If anyone wants to put it in the 'Cold War' section, they're free to do so. It would certainly be a more logical home for it. Alfie Gandon (talk) 13:39, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

I disagree. This was already discussed on your talk page. Not only are you removing relevant, sourced content, but you are damaging the layout and templates of the article per this edit. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 20:20, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
Not discussed enough to my satisfaction. I don't understand why you want to have material related to late in the Cold War in a section to do with the immediate aftermath of World War II, especially when the latter is followed by a section named 'Cold War'. Your other changes are fine, I've no problem with those being put back in. Alfie Gandon (talk) 20:02, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

Slightly misleading[edit]

The article states the Soviet Army as being only the ground forces part of the Soviet Armed Forces (as e. g. the United States Army is in case of USA). One should notice that also Strategic Rocket Forces, Air Forces and Air Defense Forces formed parts of the Soviet Army, so that the term Soviet Army embraces a brider specter than only Ground forces. --129.187.244.28 (talk) 06:59, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
