In the Pacific Fleet, an army of air force and air defense

36
In 2018, the marine Aviation and Pacific Air Defense Forces fleet will be combined as part of the army with headquarters in Kamchatka, according News.




The new operational association will include at least two divisions - the aviation and air defense forces. The zone of responsibility of the future association extends from the Northern Kuriles to the Arctic island of Wrangel.

“The basis of the grouping of the new army will be the 317 th mixed aviation regiment stationed in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and based on the same 53-I air defense division stationed in Yelizovo. The air regiment includes a squadron of anti-submarine aircraft with modernized Il-38H "Novella". The Mig-31 high-altitude interceptors are also based in Yelizovo. In Kamchatka, there are still squadrons of helicopters and UAVs. In the future, some air divisions will be supplemented with new equipment and will receive regimental status, ”the newspaper writes, citing sources in the Russian Defense Ministry.

The Air Force and Air Defense Army will operate in a single control loop with the main forces of the Pacific Fleet and the entire Eastern Military District.

According to military expert Alexei Leonkov, the creation of such formations in the Pacific direction is very timely.

This region has recently become "hot." US military activity here has increased many times under the pretext of the North Korean missile threat. In the area of ​​Chukotka and Kamchatka we are directly bordering Alaska, where large US aviation and naval bases are built. In the Pacific, the United States has six aircraft carriers,
said the expert.

He noted that the formation of the Air Force and Air Defense armies can be regarded as an asymmetric response to the activity of the US military aircraft.

Concentration under the unified command of the reconnaissance and strike capabilities of naval aviation and air defense forces is an essential deterrent to any aggressive inclinations,
Leonkov added.

        It is very good that instead of poorly managed air bases created during the unsuccessful reform of 2008, regiments and divisions are being recreated. good Under a single command, aviation and air defense forces will be able to quickly track threats in their area of ​​responsibility and prevent a sudden air attack. yes
        PS I read that the Defense Ministry plans to create another army of the Air Force and Air Defense with subordinate units deployed in Primorye. Her area of ​​responsibility will already include: Sakhalin, the Kuril Islands, the Sea of ​​Japan and the Sea of ​​Okhotsk. good

          US planes are active, and we ..... they don’t need guys, we have an army here! There was a commander of the diverse forces of Kamchatka, we are creating an unnecessary superstructure - why?

      Will there really be a new USC? As a UNITED NORTH Fleet STRATEGIC COMMAND, which recently celebrated three years !!!

      There are many operational areas for the BBO. The area of ​​responsibility of the Eastern Military District includes more than 40 percent of the continental part of Russia and 144 million nautical miles of the World Ocean. The land border moved to Lake Baikal, and the marine area of ​​responsibility extends to 30 degrees south latitude.
      Yes, and at present, the role of TOZ has increased significantly for a number of reasons:
      - the economic development of the countries of the zone and their role in the global economy
      -concentration of US efforts in the economic, trade and political spheres in this region
      -with the development of the Northern Sea Route ...

      Do you think in vain that there are three S-400 divisions instead of the two assigned. Coastal anti-ship complexes protecting the future headquarters of the army are also deployed, as well as airfields on the islands are brought into proper shape.

      South Kuril Islands and Sakhalin are the responsibility of the 68 army corps
      The main problem is Kamchatka, than to cover Vilyuchinsk and Anadyr, a strip of coast in 2000 km.
      It is necessary to form a new Army, you can call the Army Corps (!)
      To at least "linearly" (900 km) block Kamchatka - 2 motorized divisions (600 km); 2 Marine Corps Brigades to block at least “locally” the coastline (200 km.) In Vilyuchinsk and Anadyr.
      That's where you need it first of all - helicopter carriers or UDC (Kuril Islands, Kamchatka, Sakhalin)

      They promise that over time, a “coastal army” will appear in the Pacific Fleet to protect the Kuril and Sakhalin, apparently the army will be 68 AK

    But what about the vaunted brigade system? Yes, they added colonel posts, but will they give airplanes? If the process goes well, you will have to re-create the Unified Energy System of the country, but what about Chubais, the “great and terrible”?

      Just when forming divisions, the need for staffing units will appear. And these are new orders for the aviation industry, as well as for those who make air defense systems.
      Very good news! In those parts, this measure is really necessary! It was already visible in the 90s. God willing, and in Sovgavan IAP will be restored, but not on MIG-23, but on new cars wink You look, and life appears on Father Matua, the airfield heals ...

        In order for this to fly, we need specialists. And then where to get them. Only a regiment is about 200 techies and engineers (and not green summers), not counting OBATO, OBS RTO. , I'm not talking about flyers. They will appear by pike.
        You can say halvah 100 times, but in your mouth it will not become sweeter. In the 90 I served in the 1 VA in the Far East. Only in Ussuriysk was the 303 HELL. This is front-line aviation. In Vozdvizhenka, in addition to my 523 Orshansky, the Tu-22M2 / 3 regiment also had aircraft carrier hunters. Plus naval aviation.
        The air army is a huge material and human resources. And if you cram into it (as in the example of Kamchatka) everything and anti-submarine, and anti-aircraft, and other aircraft, dilute all this with ground-based air defense, it will turn out to be unintelligible and poorly managed, I won’t even talk about the supply — the rear of the rear is a structure with units with very diverse tasks. And then the airbase system will seem to be the height of perfection.

      That is, the appearance of an additional managerial structure (army headquarters) will help the US aircraft carriers drive the airplanes? The "poor" Americans are completely afraid.

      The main thing is that the aircraft on this aircraft carrier have time to return on time ... All the same, mobile aircraft carriers are more efficient, but they have cut them all for scrap, and they promise to start building something in about 5 years. It would be too late ..

        maybe you didn’t understand ... in the perestroika collapse we left the Air Defense Armies combining aviation ... ZRV and RTV (support units) ... now - we are returning with a new level of understanding of tasks in the operational direction (TVD) ...
        This is not a return to the perestroika mess ... but a return to the order that was BEFORE ...

The equipment is old. Mig31 to the BM level, like from the next year, they will only go for modernization.
