Shoigu frightened the US with a sudden test of the combat readiness of the Russian army - Americans noticed a "nuclear" training

74
The verification of the combat readiness of the units of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation of the Central and Southern Military Districts, which was suddenly carried out in mid-February at the initiative of Minister Sergei Shoigu, came as a surprise not only to Russian military personnel, but, as it turned out, to their overseas counterparts. Moreover, unpleasant. In the United States, having gathered intelligence about the exercises, they became worried: it turns out, including a “nuclear” training session.

The largest nuclear exercises in the last 20 years were held in close proximity to Europe and only a couple of days after the American F-15 had to drive the Russian Tu-95 away from Guam, the Washington Free Beacon is horrified, citing Pentagon sources. Official commentaries in the military department were denied to journalists, saying that intelligence information was not being discussed. They also peacefully added that the United States also regularly conducts military exercises, there is nothing unusual about that.

But anonymously, a number of sources explained that they could not look indifferently at what happened on 17-21 in February in Russia. The fact is that the Americans didn’t observe anything of the kind since the times of the USSR - the scale of the maneuvers is impressive, according to intelligence data, both tactical and strategic nuclear forces.

The very fact of the transfer of the Strategic Missile Forces near Europe is a cause for concern, admitted the source of the WFB. But more than that, the incident can be considered a sign of Russia’s buildup of, if not a nuclear potential, then corresponding combat readiness, the source added.

The Russian military is also upset

As for the Russian reaction to an unexpected test, it also revealed that there is something to worry about. "There is a low level of training of graduates of training centers, especially drivers and driver-mechanics, which led to the exit of equipment when leaving the parks, during the march and fulfilling combat training tasks," Interfax reported following the results of an inspection statement by the Chief of the General Staff Army Valery Gerasimov. - In almost all proven "organisms" operational duty and duty officer for military units showed weak skills in bringing signals to the automated combat control systems. "

For example, the duty officer on the 201-th Russian military base in Tajikistan generally missed the alarm signal, which led to a delay in the exit of personnel from their deployment sites to the reserve area, KM.ru reported.

EuroPRO vs 12 GUMO

The Washington Free Beacon, starting the article by acknowledging that the Pentagon is concerned with the behavior of Russians, completes the material with domestic policy issues.

"Nuclear" exercises in Russia led "12 GUMO", clarify the American journalists. And by chance they translate the topic from 12 of the Main Directorate of the USSR Ministry of Defense, now the Russian Federation, which manages the bases of the nuclear weapons, on budget savings announced by the president. Which, in turn, could undermine the US readiness to repel a nuclear threat, emphasizes the WFB. And thus he comes out with the support of the military lobby and opponents of Obama. And also - supporters of the deployment of European missile defense, which is already a cause for concern in the Russian Defense Ministry.

        So, for sure, they trolled that the United States would cut spending on the army less, against the background of the general calaptoid state of the economy. It would be better if they left 4 aircraft carriers that they want to cut. Let them look "as if cool with a pinkish face", but we know that this is a sick blush, followed by a callapse and paralysis of all vital organs of the economy with all the memento mori that result from this, instantly and into the sea)))

          Seryozha, hi, he joked, communication is sacred

          Requirements for the quality of communications are established on the basis of the requirements for troop control systems.

          These requirements are:

          1. Timeliness.

          2. Reliability.

          3. Security.

          Timeliness characterizes the ability of communication to ensure the passage of all types of information in a given time frame or in real time (while ensuring the required reliability and security of communication).

          Timeliness of communication is achieved:

          · Maintaining constant readiness of communication forces and means for use;

          · Highly qualified personnel;

          · A clear organization of operational and technical services at nodes and communication lines;

          · The correct choice of means and methods of organizing communications for the transmission of messages, taking into account their urgency, presentation form and volume;

          · Approximation of terminal communication devices to the workplaces of officials of control points;

          · The use of automation tools for the exchange of information;

          · The organization of control over the passage of messages and the provision of negotiations within the established (control) time frame;

          · Continuous and operational communication management;

          · The implementation of measures to protect nodes and communication lines from means of destruction and electronic suppression of the enemy.

              I’ll tell you as a radio operator that this is a very useful range of radio waves, but for it to constantly communicate, you need a lot of work, making a calendar, maneuvering with frequencies, etc. The quality of the channels does not allow stable encryption, so code tables are needed. take the HF very seriously, and not for show. The soldier cannot become a shortwave per year. But everything is feasible, in principle. In Spitak and Leninakan, the only connection with the world was on HF, but military communications had different standards.

    Still, it was not in vain that Shoigu was appointed to the post of defense minister. after all, it is not for nothing that they talk about an impending serious war, and such exercises reflect reality very well and show all the shortcomings and blunders in the defense system of our country much better. You can conduct as many exercises as you like, which are written according to a certain "scenario" and the troops are aware of what, when to do. But simulations of this kind help to quickly patch holes by means of a "burn"! I hope the conclusions will be correct. criticism should always be, only weaklings shout about their invincibility, and true strategists silently sharpen a knife and prepare to fight. It is not for nothing that it says: "if you want peace, prepare for war."

    By the way, if we talk about the fact that even the states were crazy, then the highest level of secrecy was observed, and therefore this is not window dressing. At one time, the USSR conducted a kind of 7-day nuclear war (exercises), which very coolly cooled the ardor of many McCains. The same maneuvers were started under a different pretext: if they are checking, then they are counting on the result, which means there is something to ask. Growing up, brothers soldier

      SHIELD-82 they were called)) and were not a 7-day imitation, but a 7-hour nuclear war.

      Exercise plan
      In a rapidly changing environment, it is necessary to deliver a disarming nuclear strike on the territory of the United States and other NATO member countries. Therefore, all the components of the nuclear triad of strategic missile forces were to take part in the exercises. The General Staff of the USSR planned:
      for the first time in world history, to shoot from a submerged position the full ammunition of a strategic missile cruiser (16-20 missiles) [2]; it was planned to launch two rockets from the ice of the Arctic Ocean and two rockets from the Sea of ​​Okhotsk;
      volley launch of air-based cruise missiles (16-24 pieces) from strategic bombers;
      launch of 14 intercontinental ballistic missiles from permanent locations in the RSFSR, USSR and KazSSR. Moreover, the launch should be made at the command of the command rocket 15A11 system "Perimeter";
      repulsing a "massive missile attack of a likely enemy" by the Moscow missile defense forces from the Sary-Shagan test site;
      launches of spacecraft for various purposes:
      two satellite reconnaissance "Zenit-6U";
      navigation satellite of the Parus system;
      radio intelligence satellite “Tselina-D”;
      satellite missile attack warning system "Eye";
      three satellites of the GLONASS navigation system;
      Soyuz T manned spacecraft with two astronauts on board;
      target satellite (IS-M Lira) and interceptor satellite (IS-P Uranus).
      The launch of a large number of spacecraft should make up for the loss of satellites conditionally destroyed by the enemy, as well as strengthen the grouping of Soviet spacecraft.
      In total, up to 70 missiles were planned for launch during the day. [1]

    I felt the vibration of the earth, it turns out that the USA is shaking from fear because it suddenly left the BMD-2 company’s boxes
    Wikipedia information
    “BMD-2 is outdated morally and physically, the age of the machines is 20–25 years, and sometimes more. Depreciation of the main components and assemblies does not allow the combat capabilities of this type of equipment to be used. For this reason, two BMD-2 units failed during the march to the training ground. ”

    "There is a low level of training of graduates of training centers, especially drivers and driver-mechanics, I remember my studies at DOSAAF for six months every day, they made drivers of mechanics out of us, and came to the SA as ready-made specialists. And now everyone who has an ass gets behind the wheel and does not think about the consequences. A year ago, an officer watched an "accident" on the highway and gave a slap on the head to the driver who killed (overheated) a brand new Kamaz. The driver did not even know that there was such a device as a blind in front of the radiator. Isn't it time to return the former school of DOSAAF

      . Is it time to return to the former school of DOSAAF

      It’s high time. I myself studied as a bilge engineer, really trained, trained excellent specialists, instructors were retired sailors, specialists from the Volzhsky United Shipping Company, a diving training was conducted by a person from some special unit, we were told that this is a prosecutor’s employee. passed on two ships, on a raid minesweeper handed over to the Baltic Fleet, and one more ship, I don’t remember the project. The ship base on which we studied and lived was also equipped with all the necessary auxiliary devices, we all had a watch with a mechanic at the bottom. We are talking about the Saratov Maritime School DOSAAF. Besides us hold, they also trained electricians for naval aviation.

      Now in Russia the topic is being discussed - about returning to the Primary Military Training School ... My opinion is that it is necessary to return it to the training program - NVP, auto-making, and of course the whole spectrum of theory and practice that DOSAAF gave ...

    Yes ... Still, they would open free parachutist clubs.
    In general, it’s good that these were not ostentatious teachings. This is evidenced even by openness and a statement of all the shortcomings.

    Yes, a vegetable in their teeth (as you know), gnaw gentlemen and do not frown. For that fought for it and ran. From personal experience I know how before "sudden" alarms were notified, laughter and nothing more. And such checks really reveal weaknesses in the activity. I really hope that this will benefit our armed forces. Let the enemies be nervous. good

    Yes, combat readiness and training are tested in wars or at least in real exercises.
