As i only played a few games, what would be a good load out for a typical russian squad?

You'll need one squad of rifles for your free unit. One squad of guys with SMGs can be a good assault unit if they can get close enough. A squad with an LMG and rifles is useful for fire support. A mix of rifles/SMGs gives you a more versatile unit at the expense of long/short range firepower. A couple of Panzerfausts can be good if you have access to them, but AT grenades are probably a better choice.

What weapons come in the box?

Thanks for the info, i am not sure about the weapons, check the link, they show the sprues.
Lot's of SMG's, rifles, carbines and some blunderbus like weapons, don't see any LMG'S but then i am not familiar with Russian WWII weapons.

Those 'blunderbuss' guns are the LMGs. They should have a circular disc shaped magazine on top of them.
