Soviet AKS74U drop cases were used by the Soviet VDV (Airborne troops) as protective covers for their rifles during jumps. They are a durable canvas case. They are only canvas, and of very simple construction, without any bells or whistles. These are original Soviet drop cases, meaning that they are at least over 30 years old, and because of this could have a slight surplus smell. Because some of these appear to be used, they could have evidence of use. It is possible both Soviet and Ukrainian forces used these before being put into storage.
