Air Defence Armies[edit]

Why the names of the Air Defence Armies are given mainly in German? --Brand спойт 11:05, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Horse armies?[edit]

Just noticed this :o) Konnaya, if taken literally would be Stallion Armies, however the Konnaya Armiya was composed of Kavaleriyskiye chasti, or Cavalry units, so maybe in this case the Armies can be Cavalry even if not strictly true to translation. After all we would not want to be sexist ;o)--mrg3105mrg3105 08:54, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Sometimes I wonder at you Mrg. The rule is, Be Bold - just fix it, especially in the case of low profile things like this. I'm just about to change it to Cavalry Armies as per most English translations. Buckshot06 (talk) 09:36, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
I don't like to tinker with other people's work without permission, and you have done a LOT of work on this template, for which I'm grateful. Believe it or not I would much rather discuss things because in discussion I usually learn something...though sometimes it is something I would rather have avoided on occasions :o) I had training in arguing, so if the counter-posing view is at all logic and evidence based, I will either prevail or admit I am wrong (if proven)--mrg3105mrg3105 09:44, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
