thats not exactly a salute, but i do not see how it is offensive, now if my fist wasn't clenched and or my arm sticking straight out, thats another story. but whatever floats your boat, my boat happens to be a kirov class battle cruiser....

this is one of the most creative loadouts I have seen in a while.
As for the salute, part of airsoft scenario games is role playing. If conscript likes soviet roles, let him excel at them.
very cool loadout
"El, If you wern't such a bad influence, you wouldn't be such a good friend" -Donut "I could buy a $300,000 sports car, but that doesn't mean I know more than El Phantasamo does about the engine." -Kneif "The thought of El in an aircraft makes me shiver..... Now back to something not as scary, Zombies!" -Red Knight
Now that this thread is alive, time for a critique, I think.
Firstly, flora BDU. Spetsnaz generally don't use it, way too green and not a good cut of uniform. It's far more likely you'll find them in Kamysh, KLMK, or one of the Reed patterns. (Recognize that Spetsnaz is not any particular unit, there are various spetsnaz groups among the Russian service arms, with their own unit styles). It also doesn't fit you at all.
Second, black tactical gear. Russia has never, with a few very minor exceptions, issued black gear. It's the worst color you could have, really... especially for Russian issue. It's also very sloppily arranged, and doesn't look like it's been adjusted to your form.
Third. I don't recognize the gasmask, but I don't believe it's one of Soviet manufacture... looks more like Finnish. As far as chemical warfare goes, your lower arms are pretty exposed. Also, never wear a gasmask with an ushanka; if you are in a chemically dangerous area, you'll just get those chemicals all over your pretty hat and have to throw it away. Quite a loss. It's not likely that Spetsnaz would wear an ushanka into battle anyway, especially a black one that sticks out against everything except the rest of your uniform.
Fourth, AKM? Sure it was VDV issue in the sixties, but your BDU and tactical vest indicate that you're representing a later period, and would be using an AKS-74.
Fifth, pouches are fine, but you may have used a few too many. Not trying to scream out your identity in combat.
Sixth, go outside. Posing in a clean uniform in a kitchen? Real cool. Not very credible.
Finally, control your hair. Nothing says fake more than long hair. Considering you have a gasmask on, it really shouldn't be too hard - and similar to an ushanka, that hair will catch any chemical agents you encounter.
Source(s): I know all about Soviet Russia.
By the way. I'm not trying to stir up trouble, really, but the content of this uniform is just... frustratingly reminiscent of terrible representations of Russian soldiers in old video games.
