That would be correct, the Izsmash arrow is noticeably different than the Romanian pointer. Here is a picture that should help. It was taken by a guy named Stottman on another website. This guy went to a Belgian museum and took hundreds of priceless reference pics. Notice how the Russian arrow is independent of the triangle it sits in and has the rear feathers.
