Special Forces Airborne - without fear and reproach

33



Many do not even know what this military unit really is. In essence, these are the eyes and ears of the Airborne Forces, reconnaissance and sabotage units that operate in the enemy's rear, preparing the arrival and preparation of the landing in case of need, are engaged in capturing airfields, small bridgeheads and platforms. Their functions also include the solution of many related tasks, including the seizure or destruction of communications, other infrastructure and much more.

This is the special forces of the Airborne Forces, which acts, speaking in an artistic and more understandable language, like a ray of light, as swiftly and easily, making its way through any, even the slightest gap.

The most successful use of airborne special forces is considered to be in conditions when the army of our country conducts active offensive actions.

Special Forces Airborne performs its tasks without fear and without reproach, anywhere in the world. Special-purpose tactical training of special forces is the development of absolute stress tolerance among fighters who are not normalized, bordering on pathology, endurance, narrow-profile training in very many disciplines, including technical, and running, running, and running many more times, performing in training direct marches 30 kilometers or more.

So what is the activity of this almost mythical division, whose name evokes delight, secret fear and wariness in the soul?

The special forces of the Airborne Forces can be used everywhere: behind enemy lines to create discord and chaos, to accomplish tasks to assist in the capture and retention of strategic objects until the main parts of the army come up, in capturing important bridges, airfields, transport hubs, etc. And since the capture and sufficiently long retention of such important objects is an impossible task for the few special forces groups of paratroopers, their main purpose is to create an enabling environment for the further actions of numerous airborne assault detachments.

For operations, separate spetsnaz groups are thrown into areas predetermined in enemy rear areas, with a clear indication for each of them a deployment zone, having fallen into which, reconnaissance paratroopers attack the places where enemy forces are concentrated. The meaning of such attacks is obvious: conducting unexpected raids for the enemy, the entrance of which causes maximum damage and damage, the special forces landed troops as a result of their attacking operations eventually cause the enemy to panic.

This happens until the recollected enemy begins to recover. Then the special forces of the Airborne Forces, in order to prevent on their part unnecessary sacrifices, turns in the opposite direction to hide or continue their work elsewhere.

We have seen a lot of what we have said in feature films and documentaries, we read in books. But this is all shown and written truth, even if sometimes embellished, but this is the work of the airborne special forces.

Just like in the movies, special forces fighters get together in tight groups, begin to retreat, hiding and changing direction. And when they fail to quickly break away, they set mines and streamers right behind them to slow down the pursuit of the enemy and be able to "dissolve" on the ground.

Due to the fact that the tactics of these special divisions of the Airborne Forces are based on high maneuverability and swiftness combined with universal firepower, the landed groups are created by their leadership from the expectation that they have the optimum size and well-tuned weapon.

In these groups there are no additional or spare people, it is customary in them to ensure the life and safety of each warrior.

Немного stories. From the very first moment of the introduction of our troops into Afghanistan, the special forces of the Airborne Forces constantly participated in various operations, therefore, when the 1994 regiment of the Special Forces of the Airborne Forces formed the 45 in the summer, there was already enough experience for the soldiers to be as versatile as possible and truly prepared for the war. In addition, numerous foreign developments and technologies have already been introduced that have positively influenced the quality of the created special forces of the Russian airborne forces.

The 45 th regiment is perhaps one of the legendary for the modern history of the Russian Armed Forces. In Chechnya, they know him well enough. It is said that even unverified information about the approach of the special forces of the Airborne Forces forced the dushmans to withdraw from positions and leave. The leaders of the militants during the first Chechen war promised fabulous sums for capturing at least one soldier of the 45 regiment. Honor and praise to our fighters: the promises remained in words, since not one of them came to the militants, neither alive nor dead. But this regiment is considered the youngest part of the army of our country, but which one!

The 45 regiment is a unique combat unit of Russia, which has everything to solve its tasks: the necessary weapons, equipment, and equipment. In addition, it is armed with unmanned aerial vehicles.

The regiment also includes a psychological detachment whose task is to demoralize or disorientate the enemy troops, to destroy his belief in the meaning of the resistance. This squad has the skills and abilities to induce a neutral civilian population to their side, which is especially important in the information age, sometimes this is done with the help of an existing compact television station broadcasting the necessary programs within a radius of many kilometers.

And that's not all. The possibilities of the special forces airborne troops of our country are truly enormous.

These units fought during the Transnistrian conflict, participated in operations during the Georgian-Abkhaz conflict, ensuring mainly the safety of refugees and the remaining civilians.

According to many airborne special forces - the first in the world, bypassing even British special forces and "green berets".

But these are just facts, and in life, not everyone can achieve the status of a universal soldier from special forces of the Airborne Forces. It is foolish to think that this is an easy task. In order to become a real special forces, the applicant first passes numerous tests on psychology, then on physical training, and only then, having determined his abilities and readiness, the commission sends him to a specific military specialty as part of the special forces.

And the learning process begins. After such a hard type of selection, the learning process begins. To say that it is very difficult to serve in special forces, especially in the Airborne Forces, is the same as simply keeping silent.

Constant training, which replace the march throws, night shooting, front mountaineering, and then tactical exercises, training of sappers, again, marches, night shooting .... And so all the time in a circle.

It is clear that not all future fighters of a formidable special forces will withstand a similar pace and load, which is why after about six months the screenings begin: someone does not stand up to their health, someone doesn’t stand up, someone is deducted from the commanders , and in the end there are those, the real ones, who perfectly possess both weapons and skills. They are the real special forces soldiers who have neither face nor estate for us. They do not cease to be at the right time in the right places, be it hostage taking, military operations in and out of hot spots, in the center of conflicts in Bosnia and Dagestan , Chechnya, Kosovo and many other places.

In all the years that the Airborne Forces Special Forces exist, its fighters do not cease to fight, looking for warehouses with enemy weapons, drug depots, saving many lives of civilians, preventing many evils. That is why these units are considered to be the real elite of the Russian army, and the 45 regiment - the regiment of the future.

      there is a mistake on a mistake. and one of the grossest:

      A bit of history. From the very first moment of the introduction of our troops into Afghanistan, the special forces of the Airborne Forces constantly participated in various operations

      those. the author does not know the story. in the Soviet Army, special forces were only the GRU. and there was no other special forces. it was for the sake of the stupid conspiracy that the soldiers were informed that they were serving in the special forces of the Airborne Forces, although there were differences in everything, from subordination and OSh, to training, materiel and clothing.

      therefore, when the 1994th Airborne Special Forces Special Forces Regiment was formed in the summer of 45, there was already enough experience to make the soldiers as versatile and truly prepared for the war as possible.

      only the units that were part of the 45th regiment got their skills without airborne forces. The 901st airborne detachment was withdrawn from Czechoslovakia and was one of the best among the landing forces through the efforts of the commander of the Central Command. The 218th ORB is also a reconnaissance battalion “from the side”. Nucho, the command of the Airborne Forces has always been able to shoot foam at someone else's expense.

      According to many airborne special forces - the first in the world, bypassing even British special forces and "green berets".

      why there - even bypassing the imperial attack aircraft in a distant, distant galaxy ...

      it is somehow doubtful that in a year it is possible to train a fighter superior in quality to the SAS operative, Rhodesian light infantry and RECCE. God forbid, to approach the level of soldiers of the Soviet special forces during the war in Afghanistan, when they jumped more and shot more often, and with the motivation the military personnel were all right.

    [Quote] "For operations, certain special forces are thrown into areas previously defined in the enemy rear, with a clear indication of the deployment zone for each of them, once they are in, paratroopers attack the places where the enemy’s forces are concentrated. The meaning of such attacks is obvious: Carrying out raids unexpected for the enemy, the entrance of which causes maximum destruction and damage, the paratrooper special forces as a result of their attack operations ultimately cause the enemy to panic.
    This happens until the recovered enemy does not begin to recover. Then the special forces of the Airborne Forces, in order to prevent unnecessary victims, turns around in the opposite direction to hide or continue their work in another place. [/ Quote]

    I do not presume to doubt the competence of the author, but I know one immutable law - any exit to the rear of the enemy can end safely if you manage to come quietly, complete the task and leave quietly. Even if you had to quietly remove someone, even without blood and even if you masked the corpse well, it’s only a delay of several hours until this corpse is in place or its time for contact will come. God forbid that these hours would be enough to reach the point of evacuation and that the means of evacuation have time to dump at least farther into the open sea, where they will pick it up. If this time is not enough, then counterintelligence has enough powers and means to block the area so that the mouse does not slip. There will be no other side and other place, as the author writes. The earth will begin to burn underfoot. And not all of course, but part of the group will be taken alive, as you don’t twitch. Well, if the time at the counterintelligence is running out, then they will conduct an army operation. The army will kill everyone with a fright. They don’t even give a damn about everything - at the word saboteur, their finger automatically moves the fuse to automatic fire and they begin to shoot at everything that moves. With those actions that the author describes, the enemy will not have panic, because all actions of guards and guards are prescribed in the charters, and counterintelligence has a plan of anti-sabotage work. Hold on to the landing of the main forces is the only thing that can be in this situation. This time should be calculated in a maximum of a couple of hours, then the group will be destroyed.

      I completely agree with you. The author of the article most likely loves the Airborne Forces very much, but has extremely scarce information about the combat use of both the troops themselves and the special forces of the Airborne Forces in particular. Most likely, he visited the location of the 45th regiment, or communicated with the staff commissars.

      if you managed to quietly come, complete the task and quietly leave
      nobody canceled the laws of intelligence, it’s only in vain that you are the author. you should also have heard of other tactics often used by the special forces of the airborne forces and this is what distinguishes the special forces of the airborne forces from the GRU special forces.
      in their own words, these actions resemble point bites. hit-backed out. hit-relocated. bold, unexpected, stunning
      and haphazard attacks precisely in order to reveal themselves and create chaos in the enemy. in several directions, areas, such operations are carried out so that the enemy gets lost in reality. He began the transfer, dispersal of forces from the most fortified areas along the front, weakening or removing some points. ceased to respond with counterattacks to attacks of special forces groups. loss of vigilance, demoralization, etc. ...

        So the Airborne Forces Special Force was different from the GRU Special Forces, which immediately after the creation of the 45th regiment in the Airborne Forces did not know where to attach it, which had to be transferred to the GRU operational subordination. Moreover, having received this regiment at their disposal, the training regiment in Pechora, the brigade from Viljandi, the Berd brigade (no less well-deserved from the results of both wars in Chechnya) and the brigade from Lagodekhi were taken from the GRU. why such feints with ears are needed, I suppose, even venturers of feints with ears do not know.

        cinema chatter. "hit - retreated" - this is when there is where to retreat. "haphazard punch to find yourself" - this is some new exercise for the suicide club. because even after a systematic attack by the WG, the police, state security, all kinds of fighter battalions, parts of the anti-sabotage defense and local paramilitary forces are sitting on their shoulders. will be laid down from the earth, from water and from the air. Only divisional intelligence has chances to jump out - they climb near the rear. there is nowhere for operational intelligence to go — tens and hundreds of kilometers around — entirely enemy territory. Kung Fu theorists would be attracted to special exercises, such as the Transbaikal Locusts of 82 and 84. in order to poke around, to feel on their own skin their unsystematic pinpoint strikes with a rebound. there, give Gd to the railway bridge on the belly to crawl systemically.

        this is not a task for special intelligence groups. Airborne assault or engineering assault units and subunits are involved in this.

          Well, if you can’t tell the Airborne Special Forces from the GRU so far, what to talk about. And in general, pour so much dirt on the Airborne Forces in this topic, this is where the "movie crack". But it turns out that even the disbandment of GRU units is blamed for the airborne troops? Or how you put it for the 45th "there are no goals and objectives for him in the Airborne Forces".
          . The command of the Airborne Forces is always skillfully at the expense of someone else to shoot foam
          .
          - what else to say after that.
          because even after a systematic attack by the WG, the police, state security, all kinds of fighter battalions, parts of the anti-sabotage defense and local paramilitary forces are sitting on their shoulders. will be laid down from the earth, from water and from the air.
          og, tell the colleagues from the tenth. of which the Georgians tried to hunt off on the eighth of August for a week. they only broke off.
          Only divisional intelligence has chances to jump out - they climb near the rear. operational intelligence has nowhere to go
          -and that the special forces of the Airborne Forces in the near rear doesn’t work? Comrade Special Intelligence and I have already talked with you once. Do not repeat that the special forces work hundreds of kilometers from the front line and how you were taught in Transbaikalia. Visual and real-life examples in Afghanistan , Chechnya, Georgia.
          and as for the locusts, I don’t need to - I really went through what you did not dream about in the exercises

              You see, the theorist is special. I told you the last conversation about this and I repeat today. You don’t throw these truths to me. I rely on experience and real examples, but on what you read or heard from the same theorists as you remind me of youth demobilization, who are trying to prove to the intelligence officers of other branches of the army that they are the coolest in the next drinking bout. you ask what, they start to carry the blizzard, like you, they say we are working in the rear, we can take nuclear objects to craps. where did you work? and chewing starts, like we had a dragonfly ...
              where were special forces of the airborne forces used in our time? GRU special forces? where did you see the deep rear? in Afghanistan did you find many specialized operations for GRU special forces?
              fighters didn’t work in the interests of the army? Throw out your books, because according to your logic, there’s no work for the GRU special forces today with such tasks and tasks for which it was created. You also said about the Special Forces of the Airborne Forces, like never cry about the reduction of brigades. be consistent. for you theorists, the destruction of a competent, trained enemy who has gone through the same school, by the way, that we are a "nailing". You do not care about life, the main thing outside is to correspond to the high rank of special forces.
              As for phallometry, I didn’t even think of climbing to you. This theory is true for you, but in practice, in the real world, I went through this and can talk about it. For you, it seems to be something obscene ...
              Yes, and I admit that your penis is longer, only in your case it’s like a thirty-centimeter impotent, it’s kind of cool, but no sense. It only rubs a foot.

                I apologize for interrupting your “dialogue”. I know of several cases of profile work of colleagues from the GRU special forces in Afghanistan. The cases are very serious. Hopefully don't make a fuss about them here. We accompanied some of their affairs with our capabilities. There were completely comical episodes, as was the case near Kandahar in the 81st. We worked together, at least more often in a "non-contact" way.

      so the 45th actually made the entire battle route under the command of the GRU. in the Airborne For him there are no goals and objectives. Pasha Mercedes out of envy decided to make his own special forces, and then did not know where to stick it. the same VDDs have their own intelligence agencies and their pocket intelligence regiment was crooked from the side. on the other hand, three special brigades and three brigades were taken away from the GRU in exchange and liquidated, and Berdskaya, according to the results of the battles in Chechnya, could compete with the same 45th. moreover, all brigades with experienced specialists and Afghan experience.

      as always: in one place they treat, in another place they cripple. but - hooray! so win!

    Where's the Navy special forces? Little is known about him, but he is. And he must be able to do more. And he marked himself in Soviet times wherever there were areas of fleet responsibility. And parts of the Marine Corps visited and marked where the airborne forces did not even dream.
    On the one hand, Bushkov’s book about Piranha is an exaggeration; on the other hand, there were comrades who had BATTLE ORDERS for what they did not.
