Everyday life of a separate motorized rifle mountain brigade in the Republic of Tuva

In 2015, the 55th separate motorized rifle mountain brigade was formed on the territory of the Republic of Tuva. This is a unique formation, because in it, almost every soldier combines his direct specialty with full-fledged mountain training.


It is no coincidence that such a brigade was formed in Tuva, because the territory of this republic is such that more than 80 percent of it is occupied by mountainous terrain. In the east - the Sayan Mountains with peaks up to 3 km, in the west - the Altai Mountains with the highest point Mongun-Taiga (almost 4000 meters).

Another feature of the 55th Ombudsman Office is the following: 80 percent of the servicemen are from the administrative center of Tuva - Kyzyl.

The main means of transportation in the brigade are 8-ton Tiger armored vehicles. As the servicemen themselves say, "Tigers" have proven themselves well when moving around the landscape that is typical for these regions.

The training of the brigade's military personnel is associated with the activities of the training center, where one of the areas is training in survival in the conditions of taiga and highlands.

Details of training in the 55th Mountain Brigade, the specifics of service in it, the everyday life of the formation are reflected in a special report on the T24 channel:

    It's good for the local guys that there is where to serve not far from home! And the place is quite depressing, with a guard to work!

    Tyva is a strange republic. It seems that after the Second World War they joined themselves, and at the same time - the nationalists. This means either forcible accession, or entered from an egoistic position. They say that the Russians are a big people, they will feed and protect.

      All small peoples of the Russian Federation are nationalists to some extent ... however, the fascist invaders drank grief with them ... the enemy of the Soviet people and for the Tuvans became their personal enemy ...
      Means either forcible accession

      at the local khural everything was decided ...
      either entered from an egoistic position. They say that the Russians are a big people, they will feed and protect.

      neither they were the first, nor they were the last, who, for fear of being destroyed, were part of the RI / USSR ...
      Having sworn allegiance to Russia once, the Tuvinians never betrayed her ... a representative of this people now leads the Second Army in the world ...

        Yes, it is, heads. Moreover, of the entire power elite, the only one looks Soviet, I like him, I respect him very much. Such are the paradoxes of time)))

      The TNR was recognized in the world by only two countries - the USSR and the MPR. The independence was peculiar. All the most important issues were resolved after consultations with Moscow, and even in the Constitution it was written that the TNR was under the protection of the USSR. That is, it was practically a protectorate. And in 1944, Tuva entered the RSFSR and the USSR as an autonomous region. By the way, until 1945, the Mongolian People's Republic was formally considered an autonomous part of China, Outer Mongolia. Chiang Kai-shek recognized the independence of Outer Mongolia in 1945 after a plebiscite held there. However, his followers withdrew this recognition, and until recently Taiwan considered the Mongolian Republic a part of China. And Tuva, if I am not mistaken, is still designated on Taiwanese maps as part of Chinese territory. In the Chinese autonomous region of Inner Mongolia and the territories around it, there are several times more Mongols than in independent Mongolia, but at the same time, there are several times less of them in the autonomous region than the Han people, they are in the minority.

    Taking into account the specifics of the brigade, perhaps its staffing is smaller in comparison with a conventional motorized rifle brigade? And, most likely, there is no tank battalion in its composition?
