Two aviation regiments revived in the Northern Fleet
In the North navy By the beginning of a new period of combat training, two regiments were revived, which 10 years ago were combined into a single air base. This was reported by the press service of the fleet.
They reappeared as independent military units, a mixed guards air regiment and a naval anti-submarine helicopter regiment. In addition, the squadron of Mi-8 helicopters became a separate unit.
The symbolic beginning of the new structure was laid on December 2 this year, when a solemn construction of the personnel of the revived anti-submarine regiment took place in the garrison of Severomorsk-1. It is reported that he is armed with Ka-27 rescue and anti-submarine helicopters, as well as Ka-29 assault helicopters.
In addition, the Guards Mixed Aviation Regiment, which has become a separate military unit, includes crews of IL-38 aircraft and the military transport aviation.
Both revived regiments are reported to continue to base in Severomorsk-1.
The Northern Fleet is the most powerful in the Russian Navy and the strongest in Northern Europe. Currently (from December 15 to 2014 years), his area of responsibility has been allocated to a separate region from the Western Military District. The new structure is sometimes called the Northern Military District or the Arctic Forces.
