The Ministry of Defense of Russia has introduced a new mark of distinction.

By order of the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation from November 16 of the current year, a new mark of distinction was introduced - “Excellent rocket troops and artillery”. They are awarded sergeants and soldiers undergoing military service under the contract and conscription in the units and military units of the rocket forces and artillery (RV and A) of the Ground Forces, which showed excellent results during the delivery of control and final checks and not having disciplinary penalties.

Awarding a distinction is made by the Commander-in-Chief of the Ground Forces or another official on his behalf. The sign is made of metal of golden color with enamel of black, gray and white colors in the form of a figured shield with edging and rivets, framed by laurel branches. There is a white medallion on the shield, in the center of which is the emblem of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation (double-headed eagle with outstretched wings). In the rim in a circle - a relief inscription "Excellent rocket troops and artillery." Under the medallion there is an invoice emblem of PB and A (two gold crossed gun barrels).

In 1957, the “Excellent artillery fire” badge was entered, which was awarded to soldiers and sergeants of the military service of formations and military artillery units, but at the beginning of the 60-s, this tradition was forgotten.

Through the efforts of the RV and A department of the Ground Forces, in cooperation with the Heraldic Service of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, a remarkable tradition of honoring and awarding the best military personnel serving in rocket and artillery units has been restored.

      For experience in the Soviet past. The whole country is still holding that ground.

        It seems to me that a star is better. Star amulet will be more serious.

          Colleague
          With all due respect to the Russian Army (that of the imperial, that of the Soviet, that of the Russian) STAR is such you know the talisman, that it is not known who and what protects.
          In general, a star is very strange (and if you recall the Masons, for whom this is almost the main symbol), then a dangerous amulet.
          And if I’m not mistaken, our Army tore the star from the French, and the French began to use the stars after the French Revolution ...
          Who was behind this revolution, I think clearly .... so personally I have a big question for this very star .....
          The meaningless use of this pentagram ..... hmm .... not sure if this is correct ......
          And until the end of the 20s of the 19th century, we somehow managed perfectly well without it ....

            You can spoil any character.
            For example, the same Swastika, in itself an ancient Slavic symbol - the Solstice. However, until now a bunch of idiots connect it directly with fascist Germany only. And for the good, the Solstice should be made our symbol! For these are our roots and our past! Slavic past! I even declare with confidence that the Solstice (Swastika) is our Amulet against Masonic stars, compasses, etc.!

              During the Civil War, parts of the Red Army did not hesitate to swastikas ...

              In 1919, the commander of the Southeast Front Vasily Shorin ordered this badge to be introduced as a sleeve patch.

                  I do not express my attitude to symbolism and do not ask anyone for opinions on this subject. Just a statement of fact. It was. And you can’t change it.
                  And our whole story therefore consists of myths that are used to cleaning it up for ideological needs. Hitler for 20 years has corrupted the symbol that has existed for millennia. And now what? Forget him forever? No one offers to promote and apply it at the present time, but I don’t see the point of anathema either. This is also part of our story.
                  Otherwise, erasing the history is no better than liberalistic tolerance, when the fagot cannot be called a suitable folkloric word, because it will offend ...

              This of course is so ...
              Yes, it’s only initially it’s a symbol of the Masons, and then a symbol of the Russian Army .... so it’s like a question .... who the fucked up?
              Here the expression "The Russian army CLEANED this symbol .." is painfully appropriate only if you delve into the science of symbols, then a symbol is a symbol ... and WHO wears it does not affect its SIGNIFICANCE ...

              There, at the top, I was mined, apparently deciding that I spit on our Army and the holy red star ....
              That they would have poured why our Army became RED would have spat at all .....

            There are ancient Slavic runic symbols. For example, the Star of Russia (it is also called "Svarogov square" in some sources).

            However, the Red Army, and then the Soviet Army under this symbol won glorious victories, and reached its greatest power.

            Throw you this mysticism, it is no use.
            But if it’s about mysticism ... Masons borrowed symbolism from European mysticism, which at that time went (do not be surprised) as a kind of science, it was even taught at universities. All figures (and stars, as their enhanced version) had a certain symbolic interpretation. The position (standing) of the figure on the corner or on the side mattered. The six-pointed star was considered the main one (including among Masons). The five-pointed star, standing at two angles, meant strength, rightness and protection, red color meant struggle, activity, sunlight. Standing on one corner meant attack, destruction, threat. In general, this sign was (and is) a military one. So the amulet is right ... depending on which hands, of course.
            As for the Freemasons ... Every nobleman, merchant of the 2nd or higher guild, just an educated commoner and even some Russian emperors - all were Freemasons. And not only in Russia. I remember that our picture gallery became a revelation for me, where there were portraits of our district nobility and merchants - all without exception had medals, rings and even gestures that signified their belonging to Masonic organizations. I treat the Masons as a kind of "Tolkienists", only for adults.

        Take it even deeper - the 40-50s. - marks of excellent students: excellent sniper, excellent shooter, artilleryman, mortar, machine gunner, sapper, miner, torpedo player, pontoner, etc.



        I left two such signs from my great-grandfathers: an excellent gunner and an excellent miner. They look live just amazing, much more beautiful and respectable than the excellent students of the Soviet Army, Navy and Air Force.

      There was such a thing. But for each sign there must be an entry in the military ID. Including the military class. And sports-must be a certificate. At least that was the case in my day. At home, epaulets, buttonholes, badges "Excellent SA", "1st class", "VSK" and sports category remained as a memory of the army.

        There was a mammoth,
        Absolutely true! And if you go to a demobilization with a mismatch in a soldier and without a certificate for signs of class or guard, then you could stay in the commandant's office for a certain time instead of home comfort! Therefore, few risked buying!
