Shamans: A new airborne assault brigade of the Airborne Forces will appear in Voronezh

Shamans: A new airborne assault brigade of the Airborne Forces will appear in VoronezhColonel-General Vladimir Shamanov, Commander of the Airborne Forces, said on Tuesday that in accordance with the concept of development of the Airborne Forces in 2016, approved by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, they would form another separate airborne assault brigade, which will be deployed in Voronezh.


“The brigade will be formed in Voronezh before the end of 2016 of the year. The decision was taken by the leadership of the Ministry of Defense, ”said the commander.

“This compound will receive a 345 number in honor of the legendary 345 Guards Bagram paratroop regiment,” Shamanov noted, quoted by ITAR-TASS.

“Like the other formations of our troops, not counting the 31-th Ulyanovsk brigade, the 345-1 SSNR will be equipped with 80% military and contract servicemen with 20% (support units) with conscripts,” he informed. “It’s premature to speak about the combat composition of the brigade: it is still being clarified by us and the General Staff, but even judging by the name of the formation, it can be said that it will include at least two assault battalions in addition to other combat units.”

The commander of the Airborne Forces expressed indignation at the reports of some Russian media outlets that allegedly made by him (Shamanov) statements about the upcoming formation of a new airborne assault brigade in Tula, the homeland of the first Russian defense minister, General-Army Pavel Grachev.

“I did not and could not make any statements about this in any media. All the posts published on this subject with reference to me are a complete fiction, bad faith and unscrupulousness of individual journalists, ”said Shamanov.

In addition, the commander of the Airborne Forces added that the reassignment of the troops to the three separate assault brigades of the Ground Forces will occur soon.

“Three ground assault brigades of the Ground Forces will be reassigned to our troops and will be included in their combat composition in the near future, this issue has been agreed at all levels, the necessary documents have been prepared, and now we are waiting for the presidential decree,” the commander said.

"We are talking about teams deployed in Ussuriysk, Ulan-Ude (Eastern Military District) and Kamyshin (Southern Military District)," Shamanov said.

He explained the feasibility of these organizational measures by the need to “have in one fist, under a single command, all airborne and air assault formations and units that, as a mobile reserve of the High Command and the basis of the operational response forces, would act in the same operational plan ".

“Naturally, with the reassignment of these three brigades from the Ground Forces, we will solve all the issues of their combat training, recruitment, comprehensive support and combat use according to our plans,” the commander added.

He confirmed that this year the reorganization of the reconnaissance companies of the 98 airborne division (headquarters in Ivanovo) and the 31 separate air assault brigade (Ulyanovsk) into reconnaissance battalions will be completed, which "will significantly increase the capabilities of these compounds."

“Next year we will hold similar events in the three remaining divisions - we will make battalions from reconnaissance,” he promised.

Recall that in June, Shamanov said that the combat power of the airborne troops will be increased due to the formation of airborne assault and parachute regiments, new regiments will be formed before the 2020 year.

On May 30, Shamanov made a report “On the Prospects for the Development of the Airborne Forces” at a meeting of the board of the Ministry of Defense. After that, he told reporters that the Airborne Command considers it necessary to have army units as part of the “winged infantry” formations aviation, unmanned aerial vehicles and An-2 aircraft.

      Uncle Vasya’s troops make the optimal decision to be in one fist and this is the right decision, and spraying and spreading such troops is unacceptable !!! We’ll wait until the airborne forces have their own aviation !!! So that planes and helicopters would always be at hand !! !

      what the Airborne Forces reinforce is understandable. but the army is not only the Airborne Forces. Strengthening should be in all troops without exception.

    The news hangs on the websites for the second day. An interesting fact is that Shamanov denies Tula and ties with Grachev. If everything is as he says, there will be not one brigade in the Airborne Forces, as it is now, but five. This is in addition to 4 divisions.
    The correct thought is that all parts where the air delivery method is used must be reduced to a single command. Perhaps in the future, and the division from the regimental link will move to the brigade. But this is the version. It would also be logical to transfer units of the marine corps under the command of the Airborne Forces - they are also amphibious assault forces, only a shipping method. Although in the regiments and battalions of naval assault there are parachute assault companies.
    The airborne forces themselves will then become the Landing Infantry Corps or the Mobile Infantry Corps - the main shock forces of high mobility. But they will have to add helicopter regiments to divisions and brigades, and increase firepower.
    Let's see what happens in reality.

      That is, to remove them from the subordination of the Navy?
      And that would be logical? Delivery vehicles (landing boats and ships) also pass the Airborne Forces?

        The Airborne Forces will no longer be purely Airborne, but a mobile infantry structure with delivery vehicles subordinate to them in an operational or full version.

      That's just not logical, even if we consider the command of the Airborne Forces as an analogue of the command of the US Rapid Reaction Forces. First of all, the marines had the functions of coastal defense, practically protecting the fleet bases. As a rule, and this was shown by the experience of the war, in the course of military operations, always parts of the ground forces intended to be used for defense of bases were used for other tasks. Secondly, the Marines in the USSR were generally trained according to the special forces program, which was caused by subjective factors {Gorshkov and Uncle Vasya always measured whose cooler} and the specifics of their application.

        Starting with the Great Patriotic War, the marines played the role of assault units and conventional infantry. After the war, the USSR Marine Corps aimed at assault and strike operations (like the Airborne Forces), as well as at holding targets until the main forces arrived.
        The analogy with the Airborne Forces is complete, only the main method of abandonment is sea. So everything is logical.

      So what's wrong with that. in general, it is necessary to leave the Airborne Forces and the construction battalion (animals to which even weapons are not issued).

    The new special squadron .... Two battalion squad ....
    Smaller shelf ...
    Without specialists ...
    Plus, the transfer of the three SDSHBRs from the Ground Forces ....
    What's the point?
    For me it would be better to deploy the 31st Ulyanovsk Brigade back to 104 VDD. And the 345th regiment would again be out of place, although not for long, it was part of the 104th VDD.
    And of course without VTA there is no airborne.
    And produce weakened military units .....
    What for?....

    because of one part? for me it’s better to learn all of our infantry troops by hardening the airborne forces! for any soldier to have skydiving skills! here, of course, aviation must be developed for these purposes! for some reason there will be a very mobile army in connection with the scale of our state!

    "He explained the appropriateness of these organizational measures by the need to" have in one fist, under a single control, all airborne and airborne assault formations and units "

    But this is superfluous, I think. Under the same pretext, army aviation was taken away from the ground forces and transferred to the air force, thereby depriving the ground forces of operational efficiency (there is still talk to return it to its place). Now they are also deprived of intelligence with mobility. As the experience of the Chechen wars showed, this is not entirely good, in which case, the SV will now have to constantly send requests through the commander-in-chief to the Airborne Forces and the Air Force to carry out even the smallest operation. The bureaucracy and the length of decision-making are growing. Again, they say about the need to have all the airborne units in one fist, but the same airborne units of the fleet are not attached. It seems to me that the matter is something else, some sort of regular undercover fuss in the Moscow Region among generals who are cooler.

    Yeah. All of Russia in the Airborne Forces. Yes, nobody else is needed. Throw the boys anywhere, they will decide everything. And where did the engineering troops, marines, motorized rifles go? What are we going to solve without landing? Serduk left, Shoigu came. Only money is spent somewhere in the wrong place. What difference does the Airborne Forces die in the new form, or in the old one if it will not support its armored vehicles? Or do you want a new feat of 86 paratroopers, due to the fact that there was no support? The problem should be solved in the complex, and not holes to float.

    I put you a plus - they are 100% right.
    After destroying the elite special forces units beyond the Urals, they create stubs in the European part, apparently like Taburetkin they think that they will promptly transfer troops, ready to fight in the Transbaikal taiga after kneading black soil in the steppes of Voronezh or sunbathing in the sun in the Kuban, there is also an airborne joke in Novorossiysk, the front line with NATO, while they should be in the rear and have the ability to deploy.

    Yeah, and the most expensive toy, and a fat feeder - the Russian army is several times smaller than the Soviet, and instead of 70 thousand airborne troops, now 35 thousand, that is, only half. It is much more efficient to have normal units, raise the level of training in them and tighten the selection, call it if you want special forces, but without the “wings” as in the advertisement and with full weapons, the marine corps in this regard looks much better than the airborne forces. The time and money spent on the RAP of all the polls, the maintenance of a part of the VTA, the heavier IL-76 all for combat training will be much more intelligent and efficient, especially they are needed in the eastern part of the Russian Federation from the Urals to the Kuril Islands.
    There is no longer the Warsaw Pact and Soviet troops in Europe, there are no rendered borders and opportunities to attack Europe. The airborne forces came to the rescue, since there were no sensible units in the country at that time, they popped into all the holes of a cracking Scoop, but now the situation is different, if the Russians have to fight, then along the borders or even on their territory.


    It is nice to watch the love of their units and troops serving in them, cheerfully over a bunch of men butting PPPs and swimming in fountains, but no more.
