Airborne Troops of the Russian Federation: composition and tasks of the Airborne Forces in the conflict against NATO

14
No country in the world has contributed to the development of the Airborne Forces comparable to that made by Russia. The Airborne Forces were an integral part of the Theory of Deep Operation developed in 30, and as early as 1935, a brigade was disembarked at the large exercises of the Red Army near Kiev.

In the course of the Great Patriotic War, paratroopers' formations distinguished themselves in battles, fighting, as a rule, as ordinary infantry. And although the Airborne Forces participated in several amphibious operations against the Germans, the largest Soviet amphibious operation was carried out against the Japanese during Operation Augustovskaya Storm in Manchuria in 1945. After the end of the war, the Airborne Forces became a separate branch of the armed forces, transferred to the command of the legendary General Margelov, creating a developed doctrine and material part, which are unparalleled in any other country in the world.

    but the Allies also distinguished themselves, full-scale landing (Operation Market Garden) and German paratroopers in 1940, capturing powerful fortifications in Belgium and Holland

      What is the difference between special forces of the Airborne Forces, DShB and Airborne Forces?

      The difference in the specificity of tasks, number
      If the special forces of the Airborne Forces is a small group, designed to solve point problems, without much noise (if possible)
      That DShB (landing assault battalion) is designed to assault (capture) a local object, with sufficient use of fire weapons
      The usual parts of the airborne forces are designed to capture bridgeheads, using all possible fire weapons.
      That is:
      The task of the special forces is to quietly take a small object, eliminate a small stronghold; small raids behind enemy lines, mining, etc.
      The task of the DShB is the capture of headquarters, stations, and so on, larger sabotage operations behind enemy lines
      The task of the ordinary units of the Airborne Forces is to seize bridgeheads, hold them, or attack from the rear in support of the main attackers from the front.

          Or did you want to hear a list of countries with this question? And then raise the screech that Russia threatens these countries?

          In principle, everything is the same as the Airborne Assault Battalion, only more enlarged.
          As I understand it, what confuses you in the name of Sturmova. In any branch of the army, well, almost in any, there are their own assault troops, battalions, brigades, regiments, and so on
          The tactics of warfare implies an attack and defense, including an attack involves the assault on locally fortified areas (primarily a DRB) and an attack "on the front."

    The author is modestly silent about the readiness of the Soviet leadership to solve the six-day war by the USSR Airborne Forces after the defeat of the Egyptians by Israel. My father-in-law (heaven be upon him), served in the Pskov Airborne Division, in the most intense 60s, talked about 12 hours of readiness for transfer to the Damansky Island area. All this time they were on airplanes. So these are truly shock troops.

    The collapse of Ukraine, the war with NATO. These videos will go out in the flesh until the change of leadership of Russia, or its collapse.

    So the State Department openly declares that the information was taken from reliable sources on the Internet, so you dictate to them the next creeps from Russia laughing

    During World War II, we saw cool German paratroopers. True, they were cool against Italians, s and the British. But against nine Russian anti-aircraft gunners under the command of a shell-shocked foreman, their gut was thin. Look "And the dawns here are quiet" there is all about it.
    Now our paratroopers go to compete with the sky, the coolest paratroopers, as a result, in their clearing at a distance of 10 km march, ours arrived 30 minutes earlier than the ov. But in power training there was no need to compare, we in the higher weight category completely surrendered to ours.
