A new helicopter regiment is being formed in Transbaikalia

27
Under Chita, a new helicopter regiment is being formed, the personnel of which is one of the first to master the Mi-28HM "Night Superhuman" attack helicopters, according to News.



“The formation of the 112th separate helicopter regiment (AFP) has already begun. A new military unit is being formed on the basis of 439 aviation base of the 2nd category. Currently, the regiment's combat helicopter squadron is armed with Mi-24 attack aircraft. But in the future, after the state tests are completed, the “twenty-fourth” is planned to be replaced with the more modern Mi-28NM “Night Super Hunter”, ”the newspaper writes with reference to the representative of the Eastern Military District.

Mi-28HM is an updated version of the Mi-28Н helicopter. The car received more powerful engines, modern onboard equipment and optical-electronic systems. Also on the Mi-28HM installed radar.

It is reported that in addition to the assault helicopter unit, two squadrons of transport and combat helicopters Mi-112AMTSH are part of the 8 AFP.

The editor of the magazine "Arsenal of the Fatherland" Viktor Murakhovsky:

I, as a combined-arms officer, are very pleased with the return of individual helicopter regiments, attached to strengthen tank and motorized rifle regiments. This practice existed in the Soviet army. Today, taking into account the combat capabilities of modern helicopters, this is being done at a new qualitative level. Mi-8AMTSh possesses new radio-technical and optoelectronic means, which seriously increase its combat capabilities. In conditions of large theaters of operations in the absence of a continuous front, especially in Transbaikalia, this will allow the command to use a wide maneuver both along the front and in depth. In addition, helicopter regiments become an attack tool for regiment commanders. They are able to support the landing and deployment of troops, as well as provide support for the actions of battalion tactical groups.


The 112 th separate helicopter regiment is a legendary military unit. It was formed in 1968 at the aerodrome in Transbaikalian Nerchinsk. In 1980, the first crew of the 112 AFP was sent to Afghanistan. During the years of conflict, helicopter pilots transported more than 50 thousand tons of cargo, destroyed 29 caravans with weapons and 112 cars. The crews were also involved in the liquidation of the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Since 1995, helicopter pilots have participated in the counter-terrorist operation in the North Caucasus. In 2010, the regiment was disbanded, and its equipment was handed over to 439 air base.

    In each of the ten armies of the RF NE, you need to have an army aviation division. Not by the number of soldiers and tanks you need to take, but by army aviation ... The plans for having S-300B4 for each of these armies and the purchase plans for 258 (ten regiments + reserve for accidents, etc. in peacetime) fit well with this. -35. System...

    In 2010, the regiment was disbanded

      Do you think this is so simple, "took" Serdyukov and "did" everything he wanted? It seems to me that we will not know about the real phenomenon of the “suddenly fast” and in fact overslept by Western intelligence, revival “from the ashes” of the Russian Armed Forces no earlier than a dozen years later.

          To build something, you need to clear the site for this. Serdyukov is simply a phenomenon that was needed at the time.

              Serdyukov, as a person, probably is not needed, but what was hidden behind the “curtains” was necessary for Russia! Even logically, would you like to be entrusted with all the "tricked out" tasks to no one "popularly" respected military or politician? Or has Russia really become so "open" to the West that it "says everything and everything"? Probably, there was such a need, after successful "fraternities" with the West of the humpbacked and subsequent alcoholic. That's why the pike in the river, so that the crucian would not doze off.

              Our army. Even 10 years ago it was customary to say (not without reason) that our army was worthless and ruined. Now the picture has changed dramatically, and the merit in this is not so much Shoigu as this notorious Serdyukov, because right now we are feeling the effect of his activities. Shoigu just got a clean sheet from which to start competently.

                A country should have an army and reserves for the army, not a blank sheet.

        Since Putin wanted to integrate into Europe, why scare partners with a large army? Who to fight with?

        Have you personally seen intelligence reports? What did they write about rearmament? Who told you such nonsense that they overslept rearmament? Or maybe you overslept? Together with the foreign media, which constantly said that everything was old and broke. But the media, this is not intelligence.

        Well, it’s clear that in ten, then even in a dozen, because the blame for the defeat of the army lies not only with Serdyukov, but who will confess to you your mistakes?

    And where to take the personnel. With so many cadets. Just do not need about the contractors - the level of knowledge and training is not the same. Or just shuffling, but even Lomonosov used to say, “What will increase in one place, in another it will decrease”

      What's the good news? On the basis of one military unit another is being formed, just like we had an air group, the regiment became. The only good news is new helicopters, but the base remained in Cheryomushki, I understand that if apart from it, somewhere in Jeda or Bad, from scratch, in addition to the existing regiments, they formed a new regiment, a completely new one, and ... .. Neither the number of l / s did not increase the number of helicopters, the old ones will be replaced by new ones, the signboards at the headquarters will be changed, EVERYTHING !!!

        Probably the regiment will be different in its organization from the base. That's the news.

          I’ll tell you for our part (but the rest also) - nothing has changed in the organizational structure. Previously, on the territory of air garrisons it was like this: a regiment itself, a logistics support unit, a separate battalion of airfield technical support, and a separate communications battalion and RTO. The senior aviation commander was the regiment. When, under Serdyukov, they began to reform the army, all these battalions became part of the so-called airbases of categories 1 and 2 (category 2 was subsequently renamed the air group), that is, they became units of one unit. A huge load fell on the commander’s regiment. Now they are turning back to the structure of the army-division-regiment, and so all the support units also remained unfortunately in the regiment. I communicate with odnokan from other parts, all the same. The only thing in some parts have not yet switched to the regimental system. Therefore, I think everything will remain the same with them.

        If so, then really little joy. Although in this case, it may be easier for the infantry to request air support at the expense of another organizational structure. And this is a big deal.

          So in the article it is clearly written- AFP is formed on the basis of 439 airbases of category 2. At the moment, in service with the 1AE on the Mi24 and 2 AE on the Mi8, then 24ki will be replaced by 28ki and that's it. So you are not right-handed.

    old ones will be replaced with new ones

    And this in itself is not small, it increases at times the combat effectiveness of equipment. She is a different generation. So far, this is enough for years to come. They don’t put the old one under the press, i.e. will be in reserve (at least) ....
    It’s not just that capacities in Arseniev are doubled. Only for export - no reason ...

      This in itself is very small, especially when you consider that over the past 25 years, ZabVO aircraft have actually been destroyed by 80%. The air hub in Borz (and this is the 3rd air regiment), the helicopter regiment in Magdagachi, the Bermuda Triangle - Jida, Bud, Steppe ceased to exist. The mixed air regiment in Chita was disbanded (the notorious Cheryomushki about which we are actually talking about in the article) now this helicopter base has only remained there. Now, about the increase in combat effectiveness, 70% of combat missions are completed by helicopter pilots. with the use of guns and NAR, and here in terms of fire power 24ka is not inferior to 28ka.

        Askme, I don’t argue that rearmament with new equipment is joyful and pleasant, but you will agree to form a new regiment and rearmament of a unit to a new motherboard with a change in organizational structure — things are still different. In my concept, a new regiment is created from scratch and not arisen due to the disbandment or reorganization of the old. So you can form ad infinitum, the result will be one or two combat-ready regiments throughout Transbaikalia.

    Against the Papuans and the terrorists. And against the regular armored units of the adversary is a different proportion. There is important and the radar and so on. and so on, much more complicated than guns and NARs. This is what we are talking about. Against terrorists, and what is there - in abundance ...
