The Southern Military District will be strengthened by two motorized rifle divisions

22
The Ministry of Defense began the reorganization of the main striking force in the south of Russia - the 58th Army. It will be significantly strengthened by the formation of two new motorized rifle divisions equipped with BMP-3 and tanks T-72B3, reported News.




Existing and new military camps in Mozdok and Vladikavkaz will be re-deployed to accommodate these formations.

According to the newspaper, referring to the military department, “at the end of 2018, the 58 Army Combat Army will begin the formation of two new motorized rifle divisions at once, which will be created on the basis of the currently existing 19 and 136 separate motorized rifle brigades ) by adding additional regiments and battalions. ”

An important element of the ongoing reorganization is the equipping of existing and newly created parts and divisions with the latest technology.

According to Viktor Murakhovsky, the editor-in-chief of the Arsenal of the Fatherland magazine, the strengthening of the 58 Army is part of activities to create a core of combined-arms armies in the Southern and Western districts based on divisional structures.

The experience of combat operations and exercises showed that the division is a more self-sufficient unit than a brigade. The latter usually requires reinforcement by means of combat and technical support and fire. The division is more adapted to the physiographic features of the European part of Russia, where there are large spaces and a considerable length of contact lines and fronts,
said the expert.

The 19-I OMSBR was created in 2009 in the framework of the military reform on the basis of the 19-th motorized rifle division. It is a connection to the rich and glorious. history. The division participated in many large-scale operations of the Great Patriotic War.

The 136 Brigade is a combat unit that in the 1990s played a major role in protecting Dagestan from terrorists. During the fighting in 1999, her staff showed courage and bravery. When performing combat missions, 36 soldiers were killed: 5 officers, 8 sergeants, 23 soldiers.

        rather corrects errors when they are redone in teams. It has long been clear to everyone that these steps were inevitable now.

          There was no mistake with Vladikavkaz.
          In general, 19 MSD was posted well, very stupid. Vladikavkaz-Mozdok. In Vladik there was no place for her; in Mozdok, the regiment was too far away to fulfill its mission. No wonder 429 SMEs did not participate in South Ossetia, they simply would not have time to get there.

    And what lines do we still need to guard ???
    Yes, consider everything!
    It can from the south, the worst infection will not trample now, but to calm down, not to prepare, is unreasonable.
    As long as there is real power at these lines, the heap of desire, there will not be many to test them!

      19 MSD was initially oriented to the south, the Roki Tunnel and the Cross Pass ...
      A division of the 58th army is a rush product during the withdrawal of troops from Germany. They pulled a bunch of troops into Vladikavkaz for a very simple reason - the Turks with German money built a military town there, which by the Second Chechen was inhabited mainly by military pensioners and civilians to whom these military pensioners sold apartments.
      In short, problems with housing for officers have always been there. At best, dormitories in kindergartens or in huts of Turkish builders. At worst, rented apartments or houses in the private sector. Of which, officers used to be stolen and taken to Chechnya for ransom.

      With the deployment of personnel it was all no less sad. Only 693 regiments on Sputnik normally had it. This is where the 19th Motorized Rifle Brigade is now located. The artillery regiment advanced to the park on alert for about 40 minutes, 503 SMEs for almost an hour. On foot. Through the city.

      Thanks to Serdyukov, Vladikavkaz under his wise leadership received exactly as many troops as he could take. One motorized rifle brigade.
      However, some Koplexists, apparently, are squeezing extra public money.

    The question is why in 2009 the divisions were transferred to brigades ??? But before 2009 there were brigades (for example 74 Yurginsky) that it was impossible to analyze whether we needed them or not? How many officer destinies were broken, how many equipment were sent to the scrap ...

    the reinforcement of the South Military District itself seems logical, because the reinforcement, for example, of the western and north-western directions would cause a new attack of hysteria in the west, but you can also transfer troops from the south, if necessary, the more so since the transfer of a large number of troops over long distances it’s being worked out, and on the other hand, it’s the south of Russia that looks the most vulnerable not even in terms of invasion from outside, but by the state of affairs on the territory of the country itself, you never know in which North Caucasian republic it might “explode ...”

    Was it then time to fence a garden with a transfer to the brigade?

    Team organization is not that
    There are no many means of reinforcement like divisions (it is not without reason that the airborne forces retained the divisional organization even in those days).
    The fact that motorized rifles are returned to the division is encouraging

      Who told you that?
      Just look at the staff of the motorized rifle brigade.
      For example, in artillery: for three motorized rifle battalions, two self-propelled divisions, a jet division and three anti-tank batteries.
      And in a regiment with divisional assets for three SMEs, there were two self-propelled divisions, a third of the jet division and two anti-tank batteries.

        Well, this is what and with what to compare, if the division is 6 regimental composition, then there is no comparison.

          if division 6 regiment

          6 motorized rifles? Then everything will be much worse in terms of amplification means.
          In fact, the Serdyukov brigade has a transitional staff. They took three infantry battalions and a tank battalion from the regiment, added battalions of the "divisional base." The piece was originally temporary
          Developed a new staff of teams, "Heavy", "medium", "light", judging by media reports.

          With the advent of Shoigu, the brigades remained stuck in their inarticulate state. Well, plus began kopleys under the name of "revive" Expressed in the creation of additional management "laying" instead of creating truly combat-ready units.

    Again cut the budget, again we proliferate paper divisions and a bunch of senior officers! Well, they deployed 2 msd already in the South-East Military District (8th and 42nd), well, where else? The Caucasian theater of operations is not Europe; here the most optimal connection is the brigade. Not where there in the gorges, passages, etc. Divisions unfold! Or do our generals consider the Turks who abandoned divisions long ago to be bad?

    It surprises me, but what they had thought about before. We didn’t really know that the divisions were stronger than the brigades. This happened when the president was Medvedev, and I spit when I watched TV, where Medvedev at a meeting of senior officers asked the newly baked brigade commander that the brigade was stronger than the division, and he began to explain that the main thing was easy to manage ....... .............................?

    I look, every month, two regular messages about the formation of divisions, forgings and. Immediately the question is, with whom and with what to complete. In MO, a cornucopia appeared. Such a feeling. Without picking, at least call the army, but in essence it will remain a brigade
