Fight without spectacles. The Ministry of Defense is learning to fight in a new way

The West-2013 strategic exercise, which ended last week, forced the Russian army leadership to take a different look at the training of troops, economic structures and the civilian population for life in wartime conditions.


Of course, no one is going to turn the country into barracks. But to reconsider plans for cooperation of the army with many ministries and departments in a special period is simply necessary.

- In Soviet times, we knew for sure that if tomorrow is war, the Ministry of Oil and Gas Industry will supply us with the necessary amount of fuel in certain territorial regions. Today there is no Soviet Union, but there is Gazprom Neft, LUKOIL, Rosneft. It means that they should have the appropriate reserves, delivery plans and contracts concluded in advance. These companies must know exactly how much, where and in what time they should supply us with the necessary materials. The same applies to the Ministry of Transport, Russian Railways, the Federal Agency for Air Transport, RusHydro and other structures. We need to build new relationships with these organizations. These issues, including, were worked out on the exercise "3apad-2013", said Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.

The minister is particularly concerned that the mobilization plans are now clearly not compatible with the realities of a market economy. For example, according to the documents of the military, a certain transport enterprise during the “H” period should provide the Ministry of Defense with a certain number of buses. But in practice it has been long ago incorporated, its equipment works thousands of kilometers from the place of registration. That is, to provide the military with buses it is not able or ready to do it on a commercial basis.

In principle, the generals are not against business relationships built on a contractual basis. But, as noted by Shoigu, if during the inspection it turns out that the company does not comply with the terms of the contract, penalties should be applied to it.

Now, as for the teachings of the "West-2013". Despite its strategic nature, the number of people and equipment there was relatively small. For the Ministries of Defense of Russia and Belarus, it was not the mass of training battles that was important, but the working out of the operational compatibility of the troops. That is, the ability of headquarters and units to act consistently on a single plan. This task, according to the chief of our General Staff Valery Gerasimov, the military coped with dignity. If we turn to other teachings and sudden checks of combat readiness, they, according to the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, showed that the Russian army "is not as weak and not as weak as anyone would like."

At the same time, Shoigu believes that the troops need to be taught to fight in a new way. Modern military operations are often non-contact in nature, they use high-precision weapon, space reconnaissance, other high-tech innovations. To effectively use this arsenal, we need training and exercises. They are constantly in our army. But, according to the minister, only the largest ones are shown. Despite the fact that Russians traditionally love to watch major military battles, and these pictures carry a considerable educational charge, for purely objective reasons army and navy exercises lose their spectacle. Here is how Shoigu explained this paradox: "The real working out of various scenarios and maneuvers will be less and less spectacular every year due to the use of modern weapons and an increase in the range of targets at sea and on land, and, accordingly, a multiple increase in the area where the exercises are held .

The degree of public interest in the army life of the Defense Ministry leaders, of course, is very exciting. Therefore, the military department decided to create a special structure for continuous monitoring of this sphere in social networks. Speech is not about trying to control critically-minded bloggers. Through this monitoring, the military hopes to more quickly respond to the concerns of the people of the problems of the Armed Forces.

    And there are projects involving foreigners in strategic industries. Maybe at least the Ministry of Defense will think about which goat was allowed into the garden.

    Imagine a battalion of saboteurs of 600 people penetrating the territory of the enemy. I must say that he was timely discovered by the reconnaissance of the border troops. However, the border guards themselves, having shown decent resistance, still could not restrain him. After that, an erupted battalion was struck (quite, I note, successfully) by an entire link of old, but quite imagined, combat-ready attack aircraft. They were successfully bombarded with 250-kilogram bombs from a height of 200 meters in a motor caravan of saboteurs. But the erupted fighters turned out to be extremely tenacious - after all this, the convoy continued to move. Then a battery of self-propelled guns hit her. Successful again. But this did not stop the saboteurs. Then they were hit by a motorized rifle brigade, reinforced by special forces. You will laugh, but this did not destroy them. They broke into the village and took hostages. And only there they were finally liquidated by anti-terrorist units.
    All this resembles a bad American action movie of category B. And also the story of the famous actor described by Viktor Shenderovich. The artist who played the SS was supposed to be shot at the end of the first act. After which he calmly set off to perform the function of a toastmaster at the next feast. But once envious colleagues sent bullets at him, not near the wings, but in the middle of the stage. And he had to creep painfully, while the partisans playing at point blank range shot him in all conceivable parts of the body.
    In fact, such tenacious saboteurs are no more than part of the West-2013 plan of Russian-Belarusian maneuvers. At first glance, this plan, with militants who are killed ten times, looks like complete nonsense. But put yourself in the place of the people who made the plans for these war games. On the one hand, it is impossible to plan and conduct normal combined-arms maneuvers: the “blue” attack, the “red” defend themselves, and then go on the offensive and of course win. The Baltic states and Poland will immediately declare that Moscow, together with Minsk, is working out the invasion scenarios. On the other hand, it is necessary to give the opportunity to the Russian and Belarusian leaders to show off against the background of tanks and armored vehicles attacking, diving attack aircraft and helicopters delivering missile attacks. Therefore, we have to invent ridiculous scenarios in which against the 600 terrorists use all the power of the Russian and Belarusian armies, with the exception of perhaps nuclear weapons.
    But besides that, the “Interaction-2013” ​​exercises of the special forces of all the Collective Security Treaty Organization countries were also made up for the West 2013 maneuvers. Fighters from Kazakhstan are fighting extremists in Belarus - I leave the reader to appreciate the reality of this scenario.
    It seems that Minister of Defense Sergey Shoigu realized how artificial such events look like they are not having anyone to repel real threats. It is no coincidence that when meeting with reporters, he began to argue that “the actual development of various scenarios and episodes will be less and less spectacular every year due to the use of modern weapons and an increase in the range of hitting a target at sea and on land and, accordingly, a multiple increase in territory, where the exercises are held. ” In other words, Shoigu, under a plausible pretext, would like to limit the use of military maneuvers as a means of state PR.

      For those who have departed from the army this will be news, but in the exercises ALWAYS work out ALL POSSIBLE options for developing the situation. After all, it is not known who and in what way will penetrate the territory in REALLY. That is why the adversary is killed many times.

        What is included in the training plan, signed and approved by the training leader, is being worked out at the exercises. And if the training leader signs everything that obedient operators stuffed into the plan, then the question to the leader is he reading the training plan and is it in its place? If it is not known who and in what way penetrates the territory, then intelligence of all kinds and counterintelligence, together with full-time and non-staff agents, sleep under a hat. Or in a mutually beneficial agreement with the leaders of the penetrators.

            Operator officers. Staff officers of various departments (operational, reconnaissance, etc.) perform the functions of operators in developing decisions of the commander of a military unit. Units. Training plans are developed by officers of the combat training department with the participation of the remaining officers of the operators of other departments.

    It is good that some conclusions are being drawn and trying to materialize them.
    And judging by the reaction of the Geyropeans, they are shocked, because, most likely, they were already sure that the Russian Armed Forces were already over ...

      Perhaps we should not worry about the reactions of the Geyropeans and others like them. I can hardly imagine how the NATO armies, oversaturated with members of the LGBD and the corresponding ideology, will conduct serious hostilities against the more or less capable of fighting the armed forces. possesses the Russian Federation, Belarus and others. Their weapon is an informational and ideological war against Russia, in which. they really succeeded.

    Quite adequate exercises in the context of the spread of Islamists from Africa, Syria, Iraq and others. It is interesting what new technologies need to be prepared in order to curb the flow of terrorists to Russia in the future?

    In Soviet times, we knew for sure that if there was a war tomorrow, the Ministry of Oil and Gas Industry would supply us with the required amount of fuel in certain territorial regions. Today there is no Soviet Union, but there is Gazprom Neft, LUKOIL, Rosneft.

    Advertising of Gazprom: - "Gazprom is the property of the nation", put into practice and project on all business entities! The slogan should be the same for everyone - "Everything is in the interests of defense!"

    WE have squandered an all-even mobilization system that didn’t squandered, then it successfully resolved to the cottages!
    The system gave such failures that reluctance to write. I took part just in these exercises.
    The only plus for the Ministry of Defense is that the Army stopped saving ammunition, grenades, and a shot for RPGs.
    Basically, failure is unambiguous.

      Come on, write, otherwise it is nauseating from some "military observers" who are "reviewing" from the outlet of the intestinal tract, having neither knowledge nor experience ... Mobresources, as such, are practically absent. The military registration and enlistment offices (entirely "jackets") do not even have the required number of envelopes and writing paper. I have a case from my life (this year): a letter comes from one district military commissar of the Kurgan province: "Tell us how much fuel and lubricants are stored at your N-site ...". I call him, introduce myself, ask: why do you need to know? We, in general, are located in another area. The subscriber mumbles: "You see, colleague, I will include your stuff in my mobplan, you will help the country, if anything ... This is an instruction" from above. "Damn, no plans, no approvals, nothing at all ... I don't understand. to be wrong, and they don't know? It's just a crime to treat the readiness of the state to conduct full-scale hostilities this way. Or are you sure that 600 terrorists are attacking the country? Food, apasus, write ...

    About mobile reserves. At the beginning of the war, all large companies will send their soldiers and either puppet. in anticipation of the owners (winners), or they will start a war against their own state, seizing resources. Shoigu is the storyteller ... He would have looked. with whom contracts for the same transport are concluded. There is a chain of 5-10 intermediaries, and then Uncle Vasya on his bus. So if he really wants to prepare the country for a big f..tsu, he needs to go from the bottom and see who really submits to whom and chop down the tails of the extra parasites. Under the current state system, it is best to hope only for oneself. Well, in which case, know where to run.

      Depends on the scale of the war. And from the enemy. If dushmans climb, no one will twitch much if the war does not affect business. And if NATO (which, however, is not very likely), then one decree is enough for everyone to put their commercial interests where they need to.
      I am familiar with many executives - there are many patriots among them, and blaming the business for thinking only about dough is wrong. Many will build tanks for their money and feed the army. It’s just that we are educated (and not only our generation, there are also many patriots among young people).
      So there is no need to manipulate and introduce invented criteria of "friend or foe". This is stupid and dishonest.

    Although in recent years they have begun to think normally at the DEFENSE MINISTRY, they have become a normal HEAD, but it is not necessary to write agreements with LUKOIL and the like, and in case of conflict they must be obligated.

    No contracts with any companies. When bringing troops to combat readiness, "Military danger" or even "Increased" is real, I emphasize realistically, to nationalize everything immediately to ensure the country's defense capability and act in accordance with the laws of wartime.

    This means that they must have appropriate reserves, supply plans and contracts concluded in advance. These companies must know exactly how much, where and in what time frame they must supply us with the necessary materials.


    And most importantly, what will happen to them if they do not, by name and guaranteed, even on the territory of the enemy.
