    in service with

    Could I use the expression 'in service with' to mean that a military unit is armed with certain weapons?

    " AK's and RPG's are in service with the Russian sabotage and reconnaisance unit in the Donetsk oblast."

    I'm sorry, Elanguest, but your sentence is not correct.

    It's not even close to being a correct sentence.

    Military terminology is not my area of expertise, but I did find a few hits on Google that suggest that your terminology is used.

    Neither am I. It's just there's been a lot going on first in Crimea and than in the East of Ukraine lately.
