90-I Guards Tank Division: the third attempt

40
We have become accustomed to the fact that events in the military environment, which will not please us (to pass on the metal, disband, and the like), occur quietly and peacefully. Why once again attract attention?


90-I Guards Tank Division: the third attempt


But about when something is being built, I agree, we must speak in full voice. Especially if what was recreated was destroyed before.

So it happened this time. In the Central Military District, the 90th Guards Vitebsk-Novgorod twice Red Banner was recreated, formed and staffed tank division.

The division was formed in accordance with the decree of the Supreme Commander and Directive of the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation from September 13 2016 of the year with the deployment of its units in the Chelyabinsk and Sverdlovsk regions.

The division consists of three tank regiments, a motorized rifle regiment, a self-propelled artillery regiment, an anti-aircraft missile division, a reconnaissance battalion, units and subunits for combat, rear and technical support.

The tank division consists of T-72B3 tanks, BTR-82A armored personnel carriers, and BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles.

Cheers comrades? Definitely, hooray!

I was skeptical about the news of the creation of the 1 tank army, which was created ... well, we all remember what it was created from, here is a slightly different attitude.

Indeed, we have not so many tank units.

For example, let me give 20-th Guards Combined-Arms Army, which is actually a shield in the western direction. Army units are deployed in the Voronezh, Kursk, Belgorod, Nizhny Novgorod, Smolensk, Bryansk regions.

So, the only tank formation of the 20 Army is the 1-I Ural-Lviv Tank Brigade (the former 10-I tank division, "Black Knives").

And that's all ...

Yes, and I must say that the First Ural-Lviv Tank Brigade was recreated in 2015 in the Nizhny Novgorod region and relocated to Boguchar.

Therefore, the creation of another fist, capable of embedding, if need be, is genuinely happy and welcome.

All the more so история The 90 Panzer Division has many glorious pages.

90-th TD starts counting its history from 1 September 1941, when the formation of the 378-th Infantry Division began in the Siberian Military District.

The 378-I division was recruited by conscripts of the Minusinsk, Kuraginsky, Karatuzsky, Ermakovsky, Usinsky Districts and the Khakass Autonomous Region.

It was one of those Siberian divisions that deserved honor and glory from Moscow to Berlin.

Having received the baptism of fire in the Volkhov region, the division went through several operations in the north-western direction.

The warriors of this particular division were the first 20 of January 1944 of the year broke into Novgorod and hoisted the banner of the 1258 Infantry Regiment over the Novgorod Kremlin. By order of the Supreme Command Headquarters, the 378 Division received the honorary title Novgorodskaya.

The division was almost completely destroyed in the battles to block and destroy the group in Kurland. By the end of February 1945, about 2 thousands of personnel remained in the division.

13 March 1945, the division was disbanded by decision of the front command. The remnants of personnel and military property, as well as the honorary name "Novgorod" and the Order of the Red Banner were transferred to the 90 Guards Rifle Division.

90-I Guards Red Banner Vitebsk sd also passed its way. About her participation in the release of Vitebsk says the honorary name.

So at the confluence of the two divisions, the 90-I Guard, twice the Red Banner Vitebsk-Novgorod Rifle Division, turned out.

90-I Guard SD after the end of the war went through a number of re-formations. At first, it became the 26-th Guards Mechanized Division, in 1957, at its base, the 38-th Guards Tank Division was formed.

In 1965, after the return of the division, the 90 numbers, under which she fought in World War II, became known as the 90-I Guards Tank Vitebsk-Novgorod twice Red Banner Division.

However, democratic transformations in our country after 1991, first, in 1996, turned the division into 70-th Guards Vitebsk-Novgorod twice Red Banner weapons and equipment storage base, and in 1997, they disbanded it altogether.

And now the division rises for the third time under the banner.

As our source told us, he is serving in one of the divisions of the division, some of them are really fully equipped with equipment and personnel, with 2 / 3 being contract soldiers.

We sincerely wish the soldiers and officers of the division successful preparation for the performance of any assigned tasks!

        Or capture a fortified area with hidden and moving firing points that require over-operational artillery work and all this must be done while in a territory that is clearly visible and shot by the enemy, where any armor will be the only cover for the attacking infantry. winked

      I advise you to read ...
      Issues of optimization of the organizational structure of the combined arms units
      I came to the need to write an article on such a topic after reading a number of other articles proposing the modernization of the modern organizational structure. Basically, these articles suggest the return of the old Soviet states of motorized rifle and tank divisions. The majority suggests that the structure should be based on a battalion tactical group - a reinforced tank or motorized rifle battalion with regular units of artillery, air defense, engineering, chemical, and other branches of service, combat, technical, and logistics support units. Moreover, they propose copying the NATO principles into the staff of the combined arms battalion to introduce as structural units artillery battalions, reconnaissance companies and many other, often unnecessary units to the battalion.

      At the same time, the battalion turns out to be overly bloated and clumsy, and there can be no talk of its mobility. This approach, I think, is fundamentally wrong. How can one get out of this situation without reducing the combat capabilities of the units and at the same time increasing mobility and controllability?

      and so on ...

      I agree with Dmitry Potapov. The number and composition of tank divisions must correspond to military threats, must be scientifically sound. Does Skomorokhov want 100500 tank divisions? Well, so Skomorokhov the Trotskyist, a typical Trotskyist Khrushchev, is a pity there is no merkader, I would supply him with an alpenstock.

      Exactly not the same as in your forum (which actually - I do not know). Tricolor national flag. The unit's banner will most likely do. And about the brigades here, no one shouted hurray. Shouted a limited number of "military" of the new look. And the general opinion was just the opposite. So do not juggle, pliz. And then they gasped into a puddle.

    Yes, and I must say that the First Ural-Lviv Tank Brigade was recreated in 2015 in the Nizhny Novgorod region and relocated to Boguchar.

    Not quite right.
    262-th storage base in Boguchar with 2009. There, equipment, weapons and property of the 10 TD were stored.
    With Mulino, with the 9 brigade, people came and transferred a number of units.
    .................
    And the Ural Tank Fist, yes, is created.
    A real fist. It was created on the basis of the former units of the 34 division, which was scattered throughout the Urals from Ekb to Chebarkkly.
    Moreover, one of the formations of this division (28 brigade, left in Klintsy of the Bryansk region) left the 32 VG.

    This FULL BLOOD Tank Division is Russia's strategic reserve.
    Therefore, in the CVO.
    URAL RULIT.

      You can enthusiastically list the composition and weapons of the division, but those who had to fall under the disbandment, and then again the formation and redeployment would like to know more about the storage and conservation of military equipment, the living conditions of personnel. Who was waiting for them there, these contractors at the new location? Where families live. where children study and so on.

        You are completely right, Victor.
        I also had to fall under such a mess, there is absolutely nothing sweet either in service or in personal terms ...
        Heh ........
        In the case of the 90 division, it’s really easier: the bases in Chebarkul, Yekaterinburg and Karabash were already there — boxes, barracks, etc.
        The equipment was very well stored in the Central Bank of Verkhnyaya Pyshma, on other BHVT ... in different ways.
        With l / s - not easy.

        Yes, it’s difficult, but these are flowers compared to what the guys from the 9 and 28 Brigades got ... If the officers are used to changing jobs, then the contract soldiers ... NO.
        Just a car of personal tragedies ....

        When additional contractors are recruited in Klintsy, the majority of Ural residents will seek in the 228 SME described in the article 90 Guards TD, located at home in Ekb.
        The same goes for Boguchar and Mulino.
        Here is such a pretzel.
        Yes, not so simple.
        And differently AT THIS TIME in any way.
        Good luck guys.

    To be on the safe side, tactics looks at combat on a squad to divisional scale. So, tactics do not operate with "armadas of tanks" anyway.
    In addition, tanks are the main striking force of the ground forces. So far, no one has come up with anything new. And the last, before the disbandment of the 90 Guards. etc. was 81 Guards. MSP He was considered a regiment of mobile forces and organizationally consisted of two MSBs and tr. And when he was sent to Chechnya, they seconded a full TB.

          Yes, the piter-tank is mistaken here. The division was constantly part of the Special Forces. I’ll supplement the author of the article a little - in 1985 the 90th Guards Tank Division was
          reorganized into the 6th Guards Motorized Rifle Vitebsk-Novgorod twice Red Banner Division.
          In 1992, the MVO was redeployed from Poland to the Tver Region and reorganized into the 166th Guards Separate Vitebsk-Novgorod twice Red Banner Motorized Rifle Brigade. From January 23 to July 3, 1996, she took part in restoring the constitutional order in the Chechen Republic.
          Since 1996, already as the 70th Guards Vitebsk-Novgorod twice
          Red banner storage base for weapons and equipment (motorized rifle
          troops). In 1997, the 70th Guards. bhvt (m) disbanded.
          This is the way of the division.

              In addition to the "exchange" of numbers, the tank division had to become a motorized rifle division, and this is already the reorganization of the main regiments from one type to another (and even with the replacement of names and numbers), and of other parts of the division in the interests of motorized riflemen. Here not only the enemy, but also themselves were confused.

    The author has a mistake in the combat path of the division. Until 1998, it was the well-known 166 Vitebsk-Novgorod motorized rifle brigade. But since 1998 it has become 70 BHVT. Now the military town in Tver is abandoned and in a deplorable state. Well, at least a Tver IED was built on the territory of the PBT.
