Special Forces Created in the Caspian


According to experts, the new military unit was created as part of the development of the Navy. “Coastal” special forces are an important tool for conducting special operations in the maritime sector.

Until the end of this year, the special forces will receive the Raptor speed patrol boats for service. According to the newspaper, the Tachyon drones will also enter the arsenal of the squadron, which will help the landing of reconnaissance groups on the shore and allow them to detect saboteurs underwater.

Today, detachments of "coastal" special forces are already part of the Pacific and Black Sea fleets.

The exact organizational structure of the military unit is unknown. Presumably, it consists of several platoons of scout divers and mine divers, as well as coastal units. The military unit was created on the basis of a detachment of anti-sabotage forces and means (PDSS) of the flotilla.

The reorganization of the Caspian PDSS detachment into a “coastal” special forces does not carry political objectives. The formation of a new military unit is carried out as part of the development of the Russian Navy. Since last year, the main command of the fleet has been working to expand the capabilities of anti-subversive units. These units allow secretly to land and evacuate our special forces from the sea. Previously, there were no units in the Russian Navy to solve these problems.
told the newspaper military historian Dmitry Boltenkov.

    In my opinion, there are more Wahhabis in Moscow alone than in all the states of the Caspian region combined.

        Why then are there so many illegal immigrants if we have borders on the castle? And then, illegal immigrants do not swim to us! If we really protect the border, then first of all the land!

    In the fleets there were Maritime reconnaissance points along the GRU 9 line, one per fleet except the Caspian) and Detachments for combating submarine sabotage forces and assets.
    PDSS on each Navy fleets. The Caspian flotilla was the 137th NSS PDSS Kaspiysk.
    Now the intersection of tasks turns out to be two structures, or how?

    But sho this, they practice at the lamb ... there the guys are far from peaceful, nobody can put machine guns on boats already, but Kalash and RPG are still in the locker.
    And yes, it is necessary to protect and control the fish storage, let the border guards be engaged in smuggling, it is there, believe me.

    there’s also control over their own southern regions. there’s far from calm .... and nothing about the transit of Tbilisi-Baku-Makhachkala, and there’s nothing to say ... from drugs and counterfeit money to jahadists ... so the creation of such units is welcome
