This is one of
the medium-sized sets from Preiser, containing 12 figures and no additional
sprues for accessories.
I am not a specialist on Russian uniforms, but two of the six distinct torsos seem to be for paramilitary (i.e. partisan) forces, while the other 4 seemingly are Soviet regulars, of which one is an officer. The two partisans are both kneeling and one of the options is to fit them with arms that are activating an explosive device.
All figures are anatomically complete. Sculpting is good, but not Preiser's best. Facial expressions are very nice. (I especially like the bearded guy.) The weapons are quite blurry.
Assembly instructions - for as far as you need them - are on the inside of the box, as is usual for Preiser. To access them, you will need to cut the box up.
