The airborne troops can be replenished with one more formation, the issue of recreating the legendary 104th Guards Airborne Division is being considered. This was reported by a source familiar with the situation.


According to the source, the military department has already made a fundamental decision to recreate the 104th airborne division, but the timing has not yet been determined. Presumably, the division will include three regiments, including the 345th parachute regiment, withdrawn from the division in 1992. There is no other information yet.

The fundamental decision to recreate the 104th Airborne Forces has been made, but the timing of its implementation has not yet been determined.

- leads TASS source words

It should be noted that information about the reconstruction of the 104th Airborne Division first appeared in 2019, then the former commander of the Airborne Forces Vladimir Shamanov announced this.

The 104th Guards Airborne Division of the Order of Kutuzov was formed in 1944, but the formation was finally completed in 1946. It was stationed in Azerbaijan in the city of Kirovabad (Ganja) and the city of Shamkhor, the motto is "Honour to yourself, Glory to the Motherland!", the symbol of the division is the desert scorpion. The division included: 328th Guards Airborne Regiment, 337th Guards Airborne Order of Alexander Nevsky 2nd Class Regiment, 345th Separate Guards Airborne Airborne Vienna Red Banner Order of Suvorov Regiment named after the 70th anniversary of the Lenin Komsomol .

In 1992, the 345th Airborne Regiment was withdrawn from the division with redeployment to the Republic of Abkhazia. In 1993, the division was withdrawn from Azerbaijan to the territory of Russia, and until 1998 it was stationed in Ulyanovsk. In 1998, the 104th Division was reorganized into the 31st Separate Guards Airborne Assault Brigade of the Order of Kutuzov.

        Worth it, really worth it. There Germany has already howled! Demands that Poland not allow trains with Ukrainian refugees to Germany. They will "concentrate" on a patch in memory there ... that's where the Airborne Forces will come in handy!

      And why does the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation need even more formations of lightweight states on cardboard equipment, which, taking into account the state of the Military Transport Aviation, are mobile only in theory? What's the point in having another division if the number of airborne troops remains about the same?

      Maybe it's better to deal with ground forces? To remove at least the BMP-1 from the parts of the first line.

          Scorpio is good. But the ribbon on the right, in Bandera's yellow-Blakit colors, is better to change to ... no matter what, as long as there is no association with Bandera. Even if once this combination of colors meant something good, now it is uniquely associated with Bandera abomination. Something like the sacred Indian symbol of the swastika, which was appropriated by the Nazis, or the rainbow, which in modern times means perversion.

              Believe it or not, I can’t watch this zomboyaschik anymore. While the children were small, there was a box in the house, but without an antenna, only DVDs, cartoons to watch. And when the demand for cartoons fell, the box went to the landfill. So you hit with your finger ... I won’t say where.
              And as for Kutuzov's ribbon ... alas, the Bandera people discredited this combination of colors so much that they primarily evoke negative emotions (well, or jingoistic patriotism and a desire to ride on the Maidan at ShcheNeVmerlykh). Most people, including me, are not very versed in order ribbons, and you probably don’t know everything by heart, even if you take only Soviet ones.

And, due to the prejudices of my hobby, I think that it is a shame for a citizen of his country not to know the colors of national heraldry, and even more so to confuse it with the national symbols of a neighboring state (yellow-BLUE flag of Ukraine), the colors of the order of his native country (BLUE with a yellow frame) and flowers nationalist pro-fascist movement (BLACK-RED), which we call "Bandera".

                    There is no blue on the Swedish flag. There is blue. And in addition to Sweden and Ukraine, the combination of yellow and blue is on the flags of Kazakhstan and Palau, for example.
                    I don't know why, when discussing the colors of the Ukrainian flag, everyone immediately remembers the word "borrowing" and Sweden. Moreover, I do not understand why it is presented as something negative.
                    How many countries have flags with horizontal red, blue and white stripes, and what do the words "borrowing" and "double-headed eagle" have in common?

    Crazy idea! The Aerospace Forces of the Russian Federation can somehow cope with the current number of airborne forces, and then they have to serve an entire division. Expanding the Airborne Forces in order to create a large number of elite infantry is also stupid. Instead, you need to improve the combat training of motorized riflemen. So you will have an elite infantry.

        Under the USSR, the VTA Air Force was great and powerful, it is even ridiculous to compare it with the current VTA. And the Airborne Forces without planes and helicopters are just infantry, no matter how they call it. It is still possible to rename all the ground forces in the Airborne Forces, the sense is from this.

          At the VIF, they somehow calculated that even in their best Soviet times, and even after the mobilization of the GA aircraft, our VTA could lift and throw out a little more than one airborne division - with standard equipment and supplies. And in the current state, the limit of the BTA is a pair of BTG.
          So our Airborne Forces have long turned into very light motorized infantry - with cardboard equipment, without full-fledged artillery and air defense.

            That's just the point, there are no rational reasons for expanding the composition of the Airborne Forces. Except for using them as some kind of elite infantry. But motorized riflemen will perform this task with greater success if they are well prepared and trained.

              So I don't argue with that. The strength of the Airborne Forces is in mobility.
              The problem is different - an increase in the number of airborne units, not supported by an increase in the number of VTA, will not lead to an increase in combat power. Because the power of the Airborne Forces is determined not by the available divisions and brigades, but by the number of formations that can be raised by the VTA.
              With the current state of affairs in the BTA, a third of the Airborne Forces units will reach their destination faster by rail than they will wait for the Il-76 and An-124 to be delivered. And if so, then why form an airborne division - parachute landing is not needed for the railway. smile

                But can’t ordinary infantry be transported by the forces of the VTA and landed at the airfield?
                And here we are approaching a very unpleasant question that has repeatedly surfaced in the VO: the expediency of airborne assault by parachute in the context of modern conflicts?
                Has anyone been parachuted anywhere in the last three weeks? Even in conditions of air supremacy.
                Or again: "this is not a typical case."
                In fact, the Airborne Forces are well-trained, with high morale, elite infantry.

                  An example before my eyes: how many battalions, regiments, airborne divisions were parachuted with technology during the current special operation in Ukraine?
                  And how many airborne troops did we observe moving along public roads on BMD, how much airborne equipment was transported by railway trains?
                  The answer is obvious: we do not need so many airborne forces with expensive airborne equipment. The airborne units should be 2-3 full loads that can be transported by the BTA. Not more. Everything else is called landing or air assault units and transferred to conventional ground armored vehicles.

                  You can, but the planes can still shoot in the air. To carry out the landing method, the airfield must be captured by someone. That is, a parachute landing method is needed, it just needs to be considered as the initial stage of deployment.

              These were very specific VDOs - landing assaults in conditions of complete absence of opposition. In fact, these were not VDO, but the transfer of airborne forces.
              Hungary: landing on the airfields of Veszprem (31st Airborne Division) and Tekel (108th Airborne Division of the 7th Airborne Division). The second regiment of the 7th Airborne Division arrived in Budapest under its own power.
              Czechoslovakia: landing in Prague (7th airborne division) and Brno (103rd airborne division).
              Afghanistan: landing on the airfields of Kabul and Bagram (103rd Airborne Division and 345th Airborne Division).

        Well, the usual dispute "mabuta" - "fuel oil" begins, now other branches of the military will catch up. It’s good that our tankers don’t walk around the city in helmets for the day, although the bottles in it are probably more pleasant to hit on the head. And about the division, I think that once they are recreated, it means it is necessary. And all of them at the same time probably do not need to be transported by BTA.

            By the way, I consider border guards to be one of the most trained, disciplined and responsible branches of the armed forces. Although he did not serve in them, he had to interact directly. Impressions are only positive. And the ambition is less than that of the landings.

        Probably. The Order of Suvorov in the USSR had 3 degrees, in the Russian Federation 1 degree. Apparently you are right. Regiments in the Second World War were supposed to be 3rd degree (not 2nd), but in WWII this regiment could be a brigade, or even a division (that's why you get the Order of Suvorov 2nd, not 3rd degree)

    Good deed. Separate greetings to those who served in it - they will be very pleased with this news. I think it would be right to have less Ilov / Ants, more turntables in the flight park. Higher mobility and remember the landing in Gostomel is significant. The first wave, so to speak.

    Under the USSR, the VTA Air Force was great and powerful, it is even ridiculous to compare it with the current VTA.

    At the VIF, they somehow calculated that even in their best Soviet times, and even after the mobilization of the GA aircraft, our VTA could lift and throw out a little more than one airborne division - with standard equipment and supplies. And in the current state, the limit of the BTA is a pair of BTG.
    So our Airborne Forces have long turned into very light motorized infantry - with cardboard equipment, without full-fledged artillery and air defense.

    But how in the 68th during the night 2 divisions were transferred to Czechoslovakia? And, of course, we were all lied to! laughing

      Keywords - with standard equipment. In 1968, the landing for the most part was still on foot.
      A division means artillery on vehicles, 120mm mortars on vehicles... Well, self-propelled guns, of course, and so on. But the infantry is all ... Only the commanders have radio stations. After all, the paratroopers did not have cars. It is now they are on combat vehicles, but we did not have cars.

The personnel are contract soldiers from among the former military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine who have undergone a thorough check. The backbone of the commanders and junior staff are Russians. Brainwashing on the basis of the fight against fascism.
