Personally i dont get russian and US desert camos mixed up. The russian camos look much lighter, almost white from a distance while american camo is more brown/dark tan

Perhaps include at a distance, side by side comparisons of factions you'd find fighting eachother on certain map versions.

"Gopniks in Adidas' suit" is a perfect phase to sum up how militia works

Thanks for your comment. Yeah, should include some audio cues, since gunshots hear a lot dfferent at different ranges in V11. Any good ideas with voice recording? It's not easy to seperate a single gunshot in battlefield.

US Army isn't wearing a desert Camo. It's a multicam uniform. Might wanna change that, other than that decent guide to help newbies. Should aslo include that each faction has certain weapons that have certain bangs. Like how if you're US fighting RU and here an AK nearby, you shoul divert attention to nearby threat. Agian, decent guide!
