    during 2020, it is expected that three battalion sets of military vehicles will enter the formations and military units of the Airborne Forces.

    Good pace. Keep it up!
    Armats would still have entered the troops at the same pace ...

          Do not piss guys off. Everything is fine with Armata. They pass the military run-in where it is determined. Everything is fine. Be further in the dark.

        Not at all. The T-14 will go into the army only after it has been put into service, and while it is undergoing tests, the BMD-4M and BTR-MDM passed the test stage at one time ... so it is for everyone in normal countries, including and among the empirialists ...

        Familiar song. I remember how they adopted the reequipment program 2011-2020, there were also many screamers on Military Review that there would be nothing to do, a maximum of several units of fighters, helicopters, OTRK, ZRS, and the result shows that all this nagging turned out to be just a nagging.

    How much can you say, write, that there is no Pskov Airborne Division in the RF Armed Forces. And there is - the 76th guards air assault Chernihiv Red Banner, the Order of Suvorov division with a deployment in the city of Pskov, and the 104th guards air assault Red Banner, the Order of Kutuzov regiment of this division is stationed in the village of Cheryokha, Pskov his Cheryokhinsky to show the complete ignorance of individual writing characters.

      For those who served in the Airborne Forces, the Pskov Division will remain Pskov.
