December 26 - Day of the Air Defense Forces of the Ground Forces of Russia

34

Do not confuse the air defense of the Ground Forces, which is also called military, and the air defense of the Aerospace Forces, also known as object air defense. These are completely different types of the Armed Forces, performing tasks that differ from each other. Even the dates of their professional holidays are completely different.


Today, December 26, it is the air defense forces of the Russian Ground Forces that celebrate their holiday.

The air defense of the Aerospace Forces of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation is a separate type of troops engaged in anti-aircraft and anti-missile defense of the territory of our country. But there are other air defense forces in the Russian army, which are part of the structure of the Ground Forces. They are engaged in covering military facilities and military units from air attacks, including on the march. In other words, they protect the military personnel and equipment of the Ground Forces from missiles and aviation the adversary.

The choice of the date for this professional holiday is due to the fact that on December 26, 1915, and according to the old style of the 13th, the Chief of Staff of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, General Mikhail Alekseev, issued an order on the formation of the first artillery batteries for firing at enemy aircraft. Then, in the midst of the First World War, they were targeted against the combat aircraft of Germany and Austria-Hungary. These first air defense units included four light cannons.

Today, the air defense forces of the SV are equipped with the most modern anti-aircraft missile, missile-gun systems and other weapons. But, as before, they protect the Army personnel from air threats.

The editorial staff of "Voenny Obozreniye" heartily congratulates the current and former air defense servicemen of the Ground Forces, as well as veterans of the air defense on their professional holiday. We wish you good health and all earthly blessings!

        It's a pity, only that the Orenburg anti-aircraft gun was covered, now there is a presidential cadet corps.

    Representatives of the Kalashnikov Concern (part of the Rostec Group of Companies) reported on successful tests of a new anti-aircraft guided missile (SAM) for the Strela-10 family complexes - 9M333.
    The new missile is equipped with a homing head (GOS), which can operate in three modes - jamming, infrared, and photocontrast. Multispectral seeker allows you to solve the problem in an optimal way - regardless of the interference used by the enemy.

    According to JSC NPO High-Precision Complexes, the 9M333 missile defense system allows you to “reach” targets at an altitude of 3,5 km, and at a distance of up to 5 km, and the maximum speed of available targets can reach 420 m / s.

          I sympathize with you, but the oath is not given to the regime and ideology, but to the people and the Motherland. Who else has betrayed whom, you need to see.

          Moreover, "he did not swear allegiance to the capitalists," a very common excuse for those servicemen who left the ranks because of the "hardships and deprivations of military service" ((c) 1 Art.
          Of the Internal Charter of the Armed Forces) in the early 90s, and the true heroes are those who stayed to drag the strap at this difficult time for the country, those whose families ate dry rations for six months ...

      Happy holiday, dear comrades! Who served in the USSR and did not betray the oath! .... but what about those (and with me in particular) who in 1991 went on an urgent call without otmazyvayas, and many were at the KChF when this KChF tore into a lashport. ..... it's worthless about the oath

      ,, Happy holiday, dear comrades! Who served in the USSR and did not betray the oath!

      So after all, the USSR was destroyed, and you did not arrest or kill a single traitor. What kind of non-betrayal can there be?

        The crow is an intelligent bird, although annoying, but I am inclined to believe that it has such a sense of humor. I saw how they played, pinching the cat by the tail))

          If you hang a dead crow, then the relatives go around the garden, and the scum-starlings even peck out the eyes of the dead relative ... by the way, did you know that the swallows of their fallen (which fell out of the nest and were placed back) are pushed out of the nest ... yeah, ornitholes have different habits

            My grandmother has been in the village for 25 years (in my memory), in a cow stall (winter) nests of swallows, so we put back the fallen ones (if alive) and nothing, the population was as it was)). I don’t know for starlings, but they did birdhouses, starlings destroy pests ...
