On December 1, the organizational arrangements for the formation of a separate airborne assault battalion of the Novorossiysk airborne assault division (mountain) with a point of dislocation in Feodosia (the Republic of Crimea) were completed,
said Serdyukov in an interview with the newspaper "Red Star".

In addition, according to him, “a separate repair and restoration battalion has been created in the Moscow Region”.

The general also noted that at the current time, "The 89% Airborne Forces are equipped with new types of weapons, military and special equipment."

For two years, the troops have already received 120 units (four battalion sets) BMD-4M and BTR-MDM ("Shell"). Of these, two sets were supplied to the Ulyanovsk separate assault air assault brigade,
he said.

Earlier it was reported that the Russian Airborne Forces, up to 2020, will receive more than 300 BMD-4М and BTR-MDM combat vehicles.

      yes a lot where you can. It all depends on the package printed per hour X - there you can’t spit around the peninsula, partners everywhere.

        A regiment is deployed; it will be the third regiment in the Novorossiysk division. Shamanov has already spoken about this.

          ICP in the Crimea? This is not even a hussar. This, excuse me, is nonsense. Unless, of course, there are plans in the near future to send troops to Ukraine. Let me remind you that DShV were not created for defense.

        Back in 2016, Moscow Region officials reported that they are “restoring” the 97th ICP in Dzhankoy.

    Why the hell in the Far East? To enter China, or what? And in the north to Finland. In addition to the Airborne Forces, the Navy also has the infantry fighting systems. This unit is needed in all directions. For surgical intervention. in a negative change of scenery.

      That's right, there are Donbass, Transnistria and Odessa with Kherson.

      It seems that you have a poor idea of ​​not only the DSB tasks, but also the aircraft as a whole. It is clear that we and SP can use as a gas processing plant (you know what?), But everyone has their own mission. You foully obscene in a public place. Nobody asks for an apology, but as you understand, there is not the slightest desire to communicate with you.

    Maybe it would be more logical for the marines to add DRBs in Crimea, rather than form a new airborne forces? Well, there is a mountain airborne division in Novorossiysk, that's enough. It’s time to remember about the Marine Corps.

      I don’t think they forgot about the marines. It’s just that they sometimes go on long trips (at least some of them) along with the ships of the fleet. And then a quick response unit is being formed, which will be permanently deployed on the peninsula, and can appear in the right operational direction in a matter of hours (if not minutes). There was also infa that, on the basis of this battalion, a reinforced air assault regiment will eventually be deployed.

          Do not bother to "fuck", dear. You do not need it.
          For those who are "on an armored train", apparently, there is a need to explain that the DSB is deployed in order to be in the shortest time where it will be needed within the Crimean peninsula and its environs.

      To begin with, to increase the units of the Marines, an increase in landing forces is needed. Further, to increase them, we need a goal. For example, readiness for war for any islands or a valuable piece of the coast. That is the question for which theater of operations they will be prepared. Airborne forces are far more universal troops. You can drop them anywhere. For example, in Transnistria. Or to Lviv, or to Kiev. Or maybe in Tbilisi. request
      Plus, in the modern concept, the airborne units are the most mobile units, which are no longer intended only for throwing in the rear or occupying enemy airfields, but can be used for operations on any military air forces as mobile infantry. It is quite logical to increase their units and make their weapons heavier.

        Sorry, but everything that you listed regarding the Airborne Forces is equally applicable to the Marine Corps. First of all, these are highly mobile units of constant readiness. They have as many chances to be used to storm the coast from boats as the Airborne Forces to gain a foothold by parachute landing. In the first and second Chechen campaigns, the MP was used as ordinary infantry. As for the means of landing, the Airborne Forces are not fattening. IL-476 will slowly change the fleet of retiring IL-76. At the MP from the new clothes Gren with Morgunov, landing boats and the possible resumption of the construction of the MDK Zubr. In the future, UDC.

          Well, the main thing is exactly what they are intended for. The fact that the Marines were used in Chechnya is not from a good life. Putin told back in the early 99s that in 60, for example, 50 combat-ready soldiers were needed to repulse an attack on Dagestan. About 60 thousand were able to recruit them from the entire army. The army was one and a half million, but they could not recruit XNUMX thousand. Naturally, the Marines were one of the few combat-ready units. But this is clearly not their function. request
          But again, to increase the number of parts of the marines makes sense when a confrontation is expected on island or coastal TVDs. For example, China is preparing to fight for the South China Sea and Taiwan. Its main opponents are maritime countries. Accordingly, he reduces the army and up to 200 thousand builds up the strength of the marine corps. Plus - he is rapidly building up delivery systems for her.
          In our opinion, only an increase in Marines at the Pacific Fleet would be justified. TK THERE A LARGE NUMBER OF ISLANDS TO BE PROTECTED. Plus from Kamchatka to Vladivostok a fairly large distance. Plus - the Kuril Islands and Sakhalin. Here, in my opinion, it is necessary to restore the number of marines to the Soviet level. That is, to restore the 55th Marine Division in full force. So it means either re-forming the disbanded 390th MP regiment or creating a new mp brigade. request
          As for the Black Sea Fleet, in my opinion, the need to increase the Marines there is not obvious. Airborne have more features. And TA in any case will increase. Maybe not so fast, but it will. But new large landing ships after Gren and the Morgun will have to wait in my opinion for at least 10 years. hi

    Someone from this news will get sick, but we are so good. Crimea - - - unsinkable aircraft carrier. What about an aircraft carrier? That's right - you need to protect. Yes, and the mountains in the Crimea are, although not very high and long, but, nevertheless, mountains. At the same time, the training base.

    ICP in my memory was part of the Minsk Army Corps. Can you scale the scales? And then reinforced laughing

      Yes, there’s even more ... In principle, the regiment was simply restored to the "place of previous registration" although when he accidentally got to the Crimea .. My stepfather once served in it .. Only in the Baltic States
