Found when researching about North Korean rank insignia. Nikita Khrushchev actually planned to have rank insignia revert to something similar the Soviet Army worn until 1943.

Unpredictably, the Soviets Army are happy with the old Tsarist-style rank insignia. Was it a factor in Khrushchev's ouster in 1964? smilies-22
