TASS: a final decision was made to revive the 104th division of the Airborne Forces

A final decision was made to revive the 104th Guards Division of the Russian Airborne Forces. It is expected that this will happen by December 1, 2023.

This message was made in the agency TASS, referring to a source close to the defense department, present at the Army-2023 International Military-Technical Forum.

A final decision was made to recreate the 104th Airborne Division as part of the Airborne Forces (VDV) in the status of an airborne assault division on the basis of the 31st Separate Airborne Assault Brigade

- the interlocutor told reporters.

For the first time, the commander of this branch of the military, Colonel-General Mikhail Teplinskiy, announced the upcoming restoration of this military unit on August 2, when the military personnel of the Airborne Forces celebrated their professional holiday. According to the general, this event should take place before the end of this year, but he did not say when exactly. In addition to the 104th division, two airborne regiments should soon appear in the Airborne Forces.


The 104th Order of Kutuzov Guards Division was originally considered a rifle division. During the Great Patriotic War, she was part of the 9th Guards Army.

Among the samples of weapons and military equipment presented at the Army-2023 forum, there are those that are intended for Russian paratroopers. In particular, we are talking about the control system for the Airborne Forces "Cassiopeia-D".

      Only this division should be armed immediately with BMP-3M, BTR-3F and MBT, especially since they are reviving on the basis of the air assault brigade. No parachute fool, except for reconnaissance battalions. Airborne assault division on NORMAL armored vehicles for assault operations.

    The division was founded in December 1944. The final formation of the division took place in 1946, when the 104th Guards Rifle Division was reorganized into the 104th Guards Airborne Division of the Order of Kutuzov, which carried its Battle Banner until 1998. In 1998, the division was reformed and reduced to a brigade, receiving the name 31st Separate Guards Airborne Order of Kutuzov Brigade (since 2007 - airborne assault).

          Dear isv000
          Beautifully said. It seems that you are an independent person.
          But most of the Russian industry works on foreign machine tools, spare parts for which are purchased on "fascist papers". Yes, wherever you spit in Russia, even in the food industry, even in pharmaceuticals, etc. everyone needs components, "consumables", spare parts that are purchased with "fascist money".
          Even cat food is made from foreign ingredients. Listened to Vesti FM this afternoon. Information has passed: animal feed will grow in price.
          Soon you will feel on yourself, in your wallet, what 100 rubles is. per dollar.
          And when will 200 rubles. for 1 dollar, I think you will not be "purple" at all.

            A year ago, it was almost 50... the government had to artificially stop its fall and stimulate the weakening of the ruble. Now he is 101. Almost doubled. But I don't notice any difference either. There are no green wrappers in my assets. And the goods that I buy (and like most of us) are not traded for dollars at all. And for a couple of yuan / ruble.

          “I follow the ruble-dollar ratio based on my work. From the point of view of the majority of the population, this ratio does not care. The situation is under the control of the state,” he said, adding that “citizens receive a salary, and smiles and no stress are visible on their faces.”

      How to re-form (reform from a brigade) an airborne division is not such a big problem ... The fundamental question is why do we need the growth of the airborne forces, when the SVO clearly showed the impossibility of fully fulfilling a combat mission in modern combined arms combat with underarmed airborne units ... and losing well-trained personnel without arming them with everything necessary is a crime. And where will these guys land by parachute? If parachutes are no longer relevant, then why form parts of the Airborne Forces? We need motorized riflemen, artillerymen, missilemen, UAV operators, pilots, helicopter pilots, etc. even border guards are needed, but where to land the troops is unknown ...

            PS: spending time and money on landing training does not justify itself from the word at all, everything is good only in films and then Soviet ones, but as the lessons of the SVO showed, without the timely approach of the main units with heavy weapons, these are suicidal ideas ...

      The fact of the matter is that the Airborne Forces in their modern form have become obsolete. Parts of the Airborne Forces and Army Special Forces in addition to them are used as elite infantry, but light infantry. Even before the SVO, units of the Airborne Forces began to be equipped with tanks. And in this case, what kind of peedrosque through the air can we talk about? Purely, in my opinion, in each district it is necessary to have an airborne assault brigade (as there were dshbr in the border districts of the USSR, and then a few remained in Russia, but not so long ago they were subordinated to the Airborne Forces). But the brigades are precisely airmobile-assault helicopters. What Gostomel's experience eloquently speaks about. And in the reserve of the Supreme to leave one full-fledged airborne assault division. Which should have a regiment on air-transported equipment (there is still not enough to transfer the capabilities of the BTA anyway) and two regiments on heavy equipment. But their personnel must be trained to act as light infantry and also have the means of fire support necessary for it. This division is the reserve of the Supreme in case in peacetime it is necessary to urgently project force over a distance. As it was with the turmoil in Kazakhstan.

    104th Order of Kutuzov Guards Division originally considered a rifle.

    It is not clear why they created a rifle division on the basis of the already guards division of the Airborne Forces?

    The 104th Guards Rifle Division was created on December 30, 1944 on the basis of the 11th Guards Airborne Division.

    And again, two years later, she is returned to her former status:

    According to the order of the Deputy Minister of the USSR Armed Forces, General of the Army N.A. Bulganin dated June 10, 1946 No. 0010 The Directorate of the 9th Guards Army was reorganized into the Directorate of the Airborne Troops of the USSR Armed Forces, and all its corps and divisions, including the 104th Guards Rifle Division of the 38th Guards Rifle Corps, were reorganized into airborne.

    And now its full-fledged revival of the division, along with the slogan "Honour to yourself, glory to the Motherland!"
    The combat equipment of the division is easily identified by the drawn symbol - the scorpion.

        At the same time, as previously reported by the president of the Russian Association of Heroes, the former commander of the Airborne Forces, Hero of Russia, Colonel-General Vladimir Shamanov, the new division will consist of three regiments, we are talking about parachute regiments.

        In a serious war with a strong enemy, all large formations will be destroyed from afar by precision-guided weapons. It would be pointless to go on the attack with an armada of tanks - they will destroy half of them on the way. The tactics of small groups assume that they will not use expensive precision-guided munitions, which means they have more chances to approach the enemy.

    Again, everything on paper will be with the plywood marshal. We know, we have already passed ... They will now draw both personnel and equipment. And in fact, mobs will fight again. It is necessary to change the leadership of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the head of the General Staff, deputies and assistants. Why, upon dismissal, check the sweet and the prosecutor's office of EVERYONE and their activities through the prism of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation

      The people have been paying for 35 years out of their own pocket, in case you haven't noticed by now. Prices are rising, financial slavery is increasing in size. The people will pay. This is the meaning of capitalism.

      First of all, one must ask oneself when one laments about the low birth rate? How many children do you personally have? Two? Few! You need at least three! That's when you can lament about everyone else.

And the state will not drop the ruble to 150, etc. and so on ... now it’s not peasant Russia, where they gave birth to children ... now with this they will send you to Nazran and Makhachkala .. they give birth a lot ... only there’s no sense in this ...

    I am glad that the illustrious unit is returning to service, but I don’t understand yet in what form it will be revived. Does Russia now need a new parachute formation? Maybe it would be better if it was revived in the form of an air assault.

    the connection is glorified not by decrees and the name
    and people (backbone) transferring knowledge and experience

    what will be glorified there?

    Do we need such a branch of the troops as the Airborne Forces, if now even planes have ceased to fly over the territory of the enemy .. The Airborne Forces, as there were cavalry divisions with checkers in their time.
    Armament of the Airborne Forces instead of heavy, gets light. And throw them into hell.
    For example, I am in favor of calling these troops some kind of special forces. It would be correct to call them special forces of motorized rifle troops. Type Don-100, special forces. They won't fly in the sky anyway.
    It is necessary to prepare more units such as the GRU special forces, for reconnaissance in force
    Special Forces Intelligence.
    Soviet example
    In October 1989, by decision of the Council of Ministers of the USSR, the formation of the Operational Division of Internal Troops - DON 100 began. parts of the Baltic, Belorussian, Kiev military districts.

    When creating, the famous Dzerzhinsky division was taken as a model. As a result, a combat-ready division was created that passed through all the hot spots.

    The division included:

    department of Novocherkassk military unit 3660

    46 MON Cossack camps military unit 3654

    47 MON Cossack camps military unit 3655

    48 PON Novocherkassk military unit 3656

    93rd mechanized regiment of military unit 5138 (tank regiment on the T-62, in Chechnya they were often called "tank special forces")

    97 OBS Novocherkassk military unit 3657

    99 ORVB Persianovka military unit 3658

    1 OR RHBZ Novocherkassk military unit 3659

    186 OISB military unit 3665

    KECh Persianovka military unit 3667

    7 OSPN "Rosich" military unit 3719

    86 OBMO Persianovka military unit 3639

    4 UADN Cossack camps military unit 5382

    106 separate medical battalion

    ORB

    29 OVK Novocherkassk military unit 3721

    w / h 3666

    The personnel of the division received its first baptism of fire in the Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Region (NKAR), where in December 1989 it was sent to maintain the state of emergency in the NKAR and adjacent regions of the Republic of Azerbaijan, escort and protect national economic cargo, free hostages, and disarm illegal armed groups, seizures of unrecorded weapons and ammunition from the population.

    In 2006, in the course of reforming the internal troops, the 100th DON was reorganized into the 50th separate operational brigade. Since April 5, 2016, it has been part of the National Guard troops (Rosguard).
    In fact, since 2016, we have lost combat units.

      Airmobile, well-trained, highly mobile troops are needed. The whole army will not be able to do this. Too expensive and there are not enough planes / helicopters for everyone. It’s impossible to make simple motorized riflemen into automobiles from time to time. They simply do not have the skills to quickly load helicopters and planes. This requires training in drugs and constant training. But parachute landing should be left to one or two relatively small formations. And it’s not a fact that specific airborne equipment needs to be designed for them. If my memory serves me right, parachute dropping of equipment was carried out only during exercises. It is impossible to use this technique in large quantities in wars.

      The cavalry was in the Second World War in case of a breakthrough, as mobile troops. But at the same time, they were also ready to act as infantry .. in Kashira, the stella stands in memory of the horsemen of Belov's cavalry division, who stopped Guderian in that place

    Great news! But why these half-measures? It is necessary to reformat the entire army into the Airborne Forces. Let there be only solid airborne forces - and leave one battalion of "mahr" so that the blue berets have someone to feel superior to.

    The experience of the SVO has shown that it is necessary to develop and equip excellently, first of all, DShB, and train attack aircraft very well. Wagner's experience would be most welcome in this situation.

    Yes, our rulers know how to destroy first (having justified the people how they will live well. Armies. Divisions of the base around the world. Groups of troops. Military-industrial complex) and then create explaining to the people how good they are. At the same time, exploiting the feelings of a fast people. Forgetting the axiom: who does not feed his Army, feeds someone else's. And everything is very simple; they can’t get drunk in any way. Rapilivaya and plundering everything their little hands can reach!

    At the same time, create the same division from the 242nd Airborne Training Center, withdrawn in 1993 from Gaizhunai (Lithuania) to Omsk, and then reduced to a brigade.
    Or maybe, I thought, revive the Vitebsk and Fergana divisions?
