Consistent provision of airborne units with new weapons and equipment will increase the proportion of modern designs by the end of 2020, to more than 80 percent, reports RIA News Post Airborne Commander Andrei Serdyukov.

Commander of the Airborne Forces on plans for the rearmament of troops


In accordance with the state armament program, our military units and subdivisions are actively re-equipping with modern, light, highly mobile and air transportable military equipment with enhanced combat characteristics, unified on a single armored tracked and wheeled chassis BMD-4M and "KAMAZ",
told the commander to reporters.

Thus, the consistent provision of units with armored weapons and equipment will increase the share of modern designs by the end of 2020 to more than 80%.
he said.

According to Serdyukov, “10 development work is currently underway in the interests of the Airborne Forces to create new types of artillery weapons, airborne equipment, reconnaissance, communications and automated control systems.”

This year, “more 3 work should be opened to create means for landing both personnel and military and special equipment, including guided parachute platforms for dropping cargo at high altitude to 4-5 km,” he added.

In the future, with the development of landing facilities, it is possible to move goods over much longer distances,
noted the general.

The interests of the Airborne Forces are also taken into account in a number of interspecific R & D on the development of air defense systems and robotic complexes.

Thus, the main directions of creating weapons, military and special equipment for the Airborne Forces are increasing their security and combat power, as well as increasing the effectiveness of the command component (development of reconnaissance, communications and automated control systems), taking into account the standardization requirements for the basic chassis,
summed up the commander.

      We have about 50-60 active IL-76s for airborne forces, another 40-50 require repair, another 100 are in storage. The re-equipment of the Transport Workers is a bit tough, only a few pieces a year.
      Here the question is different, in the current conditions of local wars, the massive landing of large units (such as a regiment) over long distances is unlikely to ever be made. Therefore, in my opinion it is cheaper and more efficient to use smaller aircraft. Maybe IL-112 or IL-214. Or transport helicopters in general.
      And with weapons about the same thing, it is necessary to strengthen the landing units with heavy art systems and armored vehicles. In other matters, what is happening, tank units are being formed in regiments and airborne brigades.

        I definitely agree with this. I don’t even remember when the last time in combat conditions was used airborne parachuting. Of course, airborne training should be developed, and the means for it, too. But the airborne forces need to be strengthened with more powerful weapons and equipment. Perhaps it makes sense to create as part of the airborne forces and "ordinary", and more "heavy" units.

        So this is not the Airborne Forces as a matter of fact, why substitute concepts? As a result, they received light infantry which in essence has nothing to do with the Airborne Forces. I say that the Airborne Forces as an independent branch of the armed forces are unnecessary, it’s easier to transfer them to the Ground Forces!

      Throughout his life, he learned about three Serdyukovs: one - a school classmate, then Verka "serduchka" and the third - nicknamed Taburetkin. laughing And in place of the fourth, it is better to take the name of the wife.

      Not a relative at all. A close friend of my father-in-law in Ryazansky, and then also lived in the same room, in the first place of service. Promoted by the results of events in the Crimea and Donbass.

    Personal IMHO. The airborne forces now have enough of what they have. The high combat effectiveness of these troops is determined exclusively by the combat training features. Maybe instead of pumping up these troops with useless cardboard armor, it’s worth changing the staff and combat training of tank brigades?
    Although, typhoon for the Airborne Forces is the right topic ....

          How to fight - and it used to be. And about the organization of a joint battle with tanks - was not. So I asked. So, in the "training manual" everything is still. And to fight, if that, on a whim? laughing drinks

    Fuel oil does not understand the soul of the landing .. And the topic is correct. They never drove to the barmaley for a visit. Some training. But the pedestrian in the highlands is a hello. And the fact that it’s hard to carry equipment with you as much as everyone needs it to be .. Therefore, creating new lightweight images of anything is a tremendous plus. Those times were. Hello Rayevka, with the upcoming holiday.

    You read some comments and the old joke is recalled - "Question: Can I make ... an act on the asphalt? Answer: - No, there will be too many advisers."
    So in the VO - in the Moscow Region and the General Staff, everyone "steps out of step", correctly "steps", only me! Why then, these strategists, are not in demand?

      Why then is there a forum and you are present at it, including? If the "giraffe is big, he knows better", maybe there’s nothing, just do it, scratch your tongue? (Toto already reached the "couch colonel")

    I wonder what the IL-112 will look like with a BMD shoved into it, even a “penny”? Landing can be both a landing method and a combined one, and it may be necessary to transfer the regiment reinforced by means of the division. In short, you need to create your own PCB in the Russian Federation
