The structure of the Ground Forces (SV) of Russia in the future will keep both divisions and brigades, according to the Department of Information and Mass Communications of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation


In the Ground Forces of the Russian Federation will keep the divisions and brigades


The preservation of brigades and divisions in the structure of the Ground Forces (SV) of Russia will ensure a balance of groups of troops capable of performing various tasks
- Commander-in-Chief of the Army Colonel-General Oleg Salyukov declared

It is noted that from 2012 to 2017, seven combined-arms divisions were formed. Compared with combined-arms brigades, they have increased strike force and fire power, and are capable of solving combat missions on a broader front.

In addition, the commanders in the divisions have experience in managing large tactical units, which are necessary for the subsequent transition to the leadership of operational groups of troops.
- Oleg Salyukov added.

At the same time, the combined-arms brigades continue to remain highly mobile and self-sufficient units.

      Yes, not once. In the days of Frunze (20 years) the army wasn’t at all and Frunze was amazed how the bourgeoisie didn’t notice and attack! At the time of Khrushchev, "Twice in 200, a court of honor and a million two hundred." they cut the army by one and a half million, cut the atillery, cut the IL-28. During the time of Gorbachev and Yeltsin, 4 Group of Forces, a military formation were destroyed, and what can I say! But Serdyukov’s “reforms” are like this: “they put a mute swan in their pants.”

        Ground forces 270000 people across Russia are critically few - a full-scale conflict with NATO in the context of the use of conventional weapons will not be pulled. And from a citizen of conscripts to enter the troops - cannon fodder, which within one week of intense fighting, will turn into mincemeat.

          He’s generally well done! In each region, he came up with two regional party committees. He forbade the peasants to keep livestock, began to tax each fruit tree, and relocate the peasants to five-story buildings. He began to buy wheat in Canada, and in the north forced to grow corn. Well, he set the world on the brink of nuclear war. I remember how for two hours I stood in line for bread. It is generally typical for Soviet Russia to bring to power illiterate insignificants and traitors to the niteres of the people.

        The mobile divisions were the DSBR, which had their own helicopter regiments. And those who are on wheels and tracks are equally mobile. Another thing is that the brigade is more compact than a division for operations in isolation or in conditions of focal defense. But this is a matter of taste, as they say. Or hold 2-3 brigades, or one division to solve the same problems.

            Rather, it’s expensive because of the massive use of helicopters, plus difficulties with maintenance and fuel and lubricants (“convoy” vehicles need to be covered with armored vehicles that are not available) and air defense (based on short-range MANPADS).
            And indeed, 101th regiment now has only one AA brigade of approximately the same composition as in other divisions.

    "" In addition, the command staff in the divisions gain experience

    The main thing is that thousands of state employees were employed: colonels, majors, etc. at headquarters
    these "paper" divisions. Recruits for whom it is still not possible to collect (and train)
    for objective reasons demographics.
    A dozen of these trained and united teams (contract soldiers + reservists) would be more useful.

      The USSR had an army of guaranteed breakthrough - head-on, with huge losses in people and equipment in the procession. Therefore, the army was more than three million people, tens of thousands of tanks, artillery, thousands of planes and helicopters. Russia is moving away from this suicidal tactic.

      Brigades are needed where battalions operate independently. For example, a pipeline brigade - each battalion draws its own thread of a gas pipeline. Or the Railway Brigade. One battalion is mining objects, the other is destroying the road (Have you seen such plows with which sleepers uproot?), The third at this time lays rails on a rocky road. And so on .... This is the team.

    In addition, the command staff in the divisions gain experience in managing large tactical formations

    The key phrase of the article, I would add - as soon as it appears, I would introduce a new military rank as a brigadier general (or senior regiment, like the KPA), thereby increasing the importance of the commander of the main tactical formation of the SV RF ..., and the regiments of divisions in including and reorganize into Airborne Forces into brigades .... so that the divisions consist of brigades (British model) and can act both separately and as part of divisions ...
    In addition, any division should be considered as an administrative unit, i.e. depending on the destination, to form it from various brigades of constant composition (for example, in the Caucasus MSD - will consist of 3 MSBr., and near Voronezh from 2 TBR and 1-2 MSBr.), but the composition and TBR., MSBr., VDBr ./DSSBr. should be the same, with the exception of compounds located on remote theater (Tajikistan, Armenia, ATS - according to the 1 MSBR.), where these connections can be strengthened by other units in peacetime ....
    The preservation of brigades and divisions in the structure of the Ground Forces (SV) of Russia will ensure a balance of groups of troops capable of performing various tasks

    This was understandable even before the construction of the “new appearance of the Armed Forces”, however, Serdyukov essentially carried out a hidden deployment of new formations, as many regiments separated from divisions and subsequently become separate brigades, as the division itself turned into a brigade, remained separate brigades, and the former division with the remaining regiments (and became a brigade) was again transformed into a division, but no longer combining with the parts that were previously part of it subsequently become a separate brigade .....
    This is called hidden mobilization, a joke once made by the USSR in the period from 1939-1941.
    Anyone who served under Serdyukov remembers that all existing TD / MSDs were converted into brigades differently, somewhere the division turned into two brigades, and somewhere in the 3-4 (42-I MSD, for example), after returning to the "source" of many divisions have different composition, the majority consist of regiments, and some of the brigades ("selection" continues?) ....

      In the Soviet army there was such a little book - Combat charter Division - Brigade-Polk. In this booklet, the main provisions and principles were described in the organization and conduct of hostilities. And it was clear to everyone that the regiment consisted of 7 battalions - divisions. A brigade is a regiment plus several battalions and divisions. The division is 6 regiments and several battalions-divisions. The difference between the American and Soviet divisions was that the division was based on battalions, as independent military units and being a lieutenant colonel in combat was more prestigious than serving as a lieutenant colonel in the army headquarters. Our confidence in the party spread only since the regiment commander and the battalion commanders were forced executors of orders. And the lieutenant colonel with daddy from the district headquarters imagined himself to be at least the Minister of Defense of Zanzibar. If there were 4 brigade headquarters in the Amer’s division, then the brigades were staffed, depending on the tasks, with a different number of battalions — divisions for the duration of the task. In our army, battalions - divisions were "serfs" among regiment commanders.

    A division is an operational-tactical formation, and it will remain so if it is a 2-4 brigade squad or 4 regimental (SA). Even actions in a separate operational direction (for example, Kaliningrad Oblast, Tajikistan, etc.) of one or two separate combined-arms brigades of military units reinforced by units and subdivisions of the combat arms (PA, AA, engineer, air defense, military maintenance) will require the formation in the ground (ground ) component of a separate operational command of the divisional level, this is in addition to the combined operational (due to other types of aircraft) above it. At the same time, everything will depend on the scale of local databases, for example, in the Kaliningrad enclave there can be either a “Polish” or a “Lithuanian” direction, the same with Tajikistan. So there should be divisions and not only with the administrative powers of their commands and headquarters.

If there were 4 brigade headquarters in the Amer’s division, then the brigades were staffed, depending on the tasks, with a different number of battalions — divisions for the duration of the task. In our army, battalions - divisions were "serfs" among regiment commanders.

    One day the colonel arrived, not even from the district, but from the General Staff, he wanted to straighten my tie, k.zel. I was an intelligence officer. He took out a gun and promised to shoot any hand with which he would try to do it. There was a screech, kapets! But did not dare laughing Moreover, he didn’t tell anyone about it, he was shy, probably.
    And when he served in battalion intelligence, the "serfs" were company MCPs, not battalions. The battalion commanders depended, of course, but less than the company battalions on them.
    Later, in regimental intelligence, I watched the decision to march the regiment. One battalion flatly refused a decision. The regiment "ran over" him. The rest silently got up and went out. And kapets. The commander heard "offended", returned the rest, the decision was made, but the commander promised everyone it is clear what if .... It all ended in scandal, but the command decided that everything was right. The commander was quickly sent off somewhere to the top, and the battalion commander was appointed instead. It seemed to me that everything was right. And they listened to the smart ones, and they themselves "grazed" the situation - both the division and the army.
    Although, for example, in Dauria it was different - the command of the 55th corps stupidly laid its tail on everything. The division commander assigned everything to the polkach. They did what they wanted. But this is the beginning of the 90s, the collapse of the sun.
    And why 7 battalions / divisions? I only counted 6.
