Elbrus training of mountain special forces

44
A separate motorized rifle brigade (mountain) was formed in June 2006 of the year, initially located in Botlikh (Dagestan), where in August Shamil Basayev’s gangs were stopped. In the summer of 1999, it was relocated to the territory of the Republic of Adygea. The commander of the brigade, Colonel Igor Timofeev, spoke about his current affairs and concerns of the “Red Star” about how the special forces' mountain specialization (as the compound is called) proceeded in a new place.


BUSINESS CARD

Colonel Igor Timofeev was born in Novosibirsk in 1968 year. After the end of the Ryazan VVDKU consistently went through all the stages of official growth from the platoon commander to the battalion commander in the airborne units. After graduating from the Combined Arms Academy of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, he commanded a regiment, an airborne assault brigade. He performed combat missions in “hot spots”: in Nagorno-Karabakh, in Armenia and Azerbaijan, in Abkhazia. A participant of the 1 and 2 of the Chechen campaigns. Awarded two Orders of Courage and the Order of Merit for the Fatherland (with swords), IV degree. In 2012, he was appointed commander of a separate motorized rifle brigade (mountain).

- Igor Borisovich, the unit that you command is one of the youngest in our Armed Forces. However, in the assets of your team a lot of glorious things ...

- Indeed, the connection is young, in the summer of 2013, it celebrated its seven-year anniversary. The combat banner of the unit was handed over to the brigade at the former point of its deployment in Botlikh in December 2007 by general Alexander Baranov, at that time commander of the troops of the North Caucasus Military District. In February, President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin visited 2008 of the year. He was interested in how the arrangement of the new compound, the construction of the military camp, and was satisfied with what he saw.

The newly created compound received the most modern educational and material base. It is not surprising that the team immediately after completing its recruitment was already able to perform the most difficult tasks at the highest peaks. So, in the summer of 2007 of the year (in accordance with the order of the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin) before the 1 motorized rifle company (mountain) a separate motorized rifle battalion, reinforced by a mortar platoon, the task was set: to make the ascent to Elbrus.

Preparation for the ascent was carried out on an individual program under the guidance of instructors of the Federation of Mountaineering of the Russian Federation. Over the course of the month, training was conducted at the Daryal training range and in the Karmadon Gorge, where the soldiers learned to live in the mountains. And in the middle of August, 2007, the 1-i motorized rifle company, for the first time in stories The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation successfully completed a unique combat training task, having climbed the highest peak of the North Caucasus! Simultaneously with this climb at a height above 5.000 meters above sea level, this unit took part in the exercises with live firing. After the exercise, our part was informally called the "mountain special forces"!

Of course, the fact that the mountain compound already in its formation could show such high samples of combat and special training for its intended purpose is the merit of the first kombriga Vladimir Sokolov, his deputy, Colonel Rudolf Kalgashkin, the chief of staff of the brigade Dmitry Polyansky and other officers of the first composition brigade.

The units of the compound also took part in the military operation to force Georgia to peace in August 2008. Yes, our brigade is young, but it has undergone excellent hardening in the course of systematic combat training in the conditions of the mountains and in the performance of suddenly arising service-combat tasks.

October 1 On the basis of the relevant directive, the separate motorized rifle brigade (mountain) was reorganized into a separate reconnaissance brigade (mountain). That also testified to the increased importance of the connection.

Since the summer of 2010, Colonel Alexander Zybkin was appointed as its commander. Here, on the shoulders of Alexander Leonidovich, lay all the concerns for the implementation of the redeployment of the brigade from Botlikh to the capital of Adygea, Maikop.

- Relocation for any connection is a serious challenge ...

- Our military brother is no stranger to nomadic life. In the summer of 2011, the brigade redeployed to Maikop, where it was re-formed into a separate motorized rifle brigade (mountain) and transferred to the combined army of the Southern Military District. In the shortest possible time, the subunits of the brigade carried out all the arrangements for arranging the personnel in the winter quarters in the Maykop garrison, in deploying military equipment and property, and proceeded to planned combat training.

I would like to note that the connection was not relocated to an empty place. As you know, the famous 131-I separate motorized rifle brigade, which showed samples of courage and heroism during the battles in Grozny during the first Chechen campaign, was located in Maykop. In 2009, the brigade was redeployed to Abkhazia, where, on its basis, the 7-i Krasnodar Red Banner, the Kutuzov Order and the Red Star military base were formed in Gudauta. And in Maikop, an artillery brigade was stationed at the location of the former 131 brigade, which was later relocated to Ingushetia. So, after the transfer from Botlikh to Maikop, our team inherited from its predecessors the inhabited military town on the outskirts of Maikop with 2-floor barracks, service buildings, warehouse premises and a united park, with a rifle-artillery range, a circuit. We also have our own training ground - the Maikop training center with an area of ​​230 ha, which is adapted for company tactical exercises.

The leadership of the republic greeted with great warmth the representatives of the command of our unit, who had arrived at the new place of deployment. During a working meeting with the former commander of a separate motorized rifle brigade, Colonel Alexander Zybkin, the head of Adygea Aslan Tkhakushinov said: “In Adygea, they always had a warm attitude towards the military profession. The long-term stay of military brigades on the territory of the republic — a separate motorized rifle, then artillery — strengthened the foundations of military traditions and the patriotic education of the population. ”

The head of Adygea stressed that the leadership of the republic always helped and intends to help the servicemen and their families in solving social issues in the future.

- When in July 2012 of the year in Krymsk there was a destructive flood, then one of the parts of the Ministry of Defense, the first to arrive in the emergency zone, was your brigade ...

- Indeed, having arrived on the night of 15 on 16 July in Krymsk, the personnel of our brigade immediately began to assist the local population. During those critical days, more than 700 servicemen searched for missing people, dismantled debris, participated in cleaning households and courtyards, loading and taking out garbage. During the rescue work, I myself had to organize interaction with the leadership of the administration of the Yeisk district of the city of Krymsk, where our servicemen had a defined scope of work. The personnel under the leadership of the commanders of the divisions Majors A.S. Bugria, M.V. Cherkas, captain A.L. Shnyrkova and other officers acted selflessly, with full dedication. Over the course of several days, 350 households were cleared, 8 km of streets were put in order, more than 1.500 tons of various garbage were removed.

The involvement of military personnel in the performance of the suddenly arisen task did not affect the quality of the implementation of the 2012 combat training plan of the year, which was fully completed. The personnel of the brigade showed high combat and special training, participating in the Kavkaz-2012 SKSHU.

- With what results in combat training did your 2013 team finish the school year?

- The combat training plan in 2013 was completed by the compound. On landfills held 52 shooting weapons and 18 artillery firing. In the winter and summer periods, training sessions were held with representatives of all specialties (one in each period) - with gunners and mortar gunners, snipers and drivers, grenade launchers and scouts, demining groups, RCBZ. To this end, we fully use our landfill. In addition, the intelligence units final stage of the collections are held in the training centers of the Southern Military District - Daryal (in North Ossetia) and Terskol (in Kabardino-Balkaria). Artillery units carry out their training during the camp artillery gathering association at a training center in the village Molkino Krasnodar Territory. There in Molkino we usually conduct company and battalion tactical exercises. Last year, 3 RTU and one BTU were held. During the past school year, the 45 grade skills of the officers and 32 percent of the contract military personnel were raised. For the better among the officers, I note the commander of the 1 battalion, Lieutenant Colonel Roman Shkrob, and the Chief of Staff of the artillery division, Major Vitaly Bobyr.

      It is a pity that we did not have such units until the 2010 year, and in the second Chechen (and the first) they would be very useful.

      Great respect for the guys! Keep it up! We will win!

        I agree . My article, in truth, evoked a double feeling. Optimistic only in part. Mountain preparation, it’s not just bad, bad, iron hook. This is a serious specialty, perhaps one of the most difficult. The attitude to parts with mining training was almost always strange in the USSR and Russia. In Afghanistan, for example, climbers served, some at the airport, some in the tank. In the Caucasus, about the same. Exceptions did not change the essence.

    RTU with live firing, with each company it is necessary to conduct at least 2 times a year. And if in the brigade 3 battalion, then there should be 18 RTU. 3 RTU per year for the brigade, this is very small.

    My son served in a mountain brigade, but not in this one, but in her "sister" - 34 Watchmen were created together, quit in the summer, my opinion about the modern army has greatly improved, although it was not unequivocally negative before.
    Kubrick for four with shower and bath, washing machines and vacuum cleaners, salary 12-18 tyr. the conscripts, smart equipment, three sets of clothes of the Special Purpose Party, civilian cooks and cleaners still had it under Serdyukov, they called for their son in the summer of 12, and they only drove the soldier out of combat, and drove him hard.
    Son’s battalion; the truth is, the son quit his job in a week before this "show", but he says something like that they were engaged without cameras.
    And the gamekeepers appear in the brigade song.

      Yes, the army should be engaged in what it is for training, combat work. And not peeling potatoes in training. However, the ability of self-service in the Russian army has always been a priority because it is the ability to SELF-LIVING. Cut off the rear of the current soldiers, remove all the service staff. For a month - without cooks and everyone else. THIS IS REALLY IN BATTLE ACTION, and to learn how to solve these problems is REQUIRED, This is life itself dictated. The fighting experience of previous generations, written in blood.

      It’s especially that after them there was a pool that was never built in the botlikh, the lack of a rifle range, a bunch of household appliances sold to local people and a criminal case about the embezzlement of dough at construction sites and the bribes from officers on the part of the bosses. But the question is different: why did they transfer the mountain reconnaissance brigade to the plain from the mountain region, where the borders of Chechnya, Dagestan, and Georgia converge, and in addition, all the double basses were dispersed before, as it is now called mountain, but it’s not clear what mountain there is, and such a question how many times climbed the heights after the first time ???? maybe the brigade from the mountain has become a motorized rifle, and indeed, there are no more graduates from the OrdzhVOKU in the troops, but somehow the landing at the helm is not entirely clear? Explain please? Yes, and then something in the Molkino to drive your own landfill does not work or something - and of course it is necessary.

    Stomp in the mountains with all the ammunition, and even with weapons ... Wah-wah ... extinguish the light, drain the oil ...

    I remembered Jan-Tugan ... as an instructor ... ahem ... dryukli.
    I remembered how they "worked" later ...

    Acclimatization is one of the most difficult stages, if the fighters are from the plain, without it they are cotton wool, and not specialists, and there is no time for "milestones" as always ... they drank local water from mountain streams with sugar or salt ... (with a "slide" fought) ... eheh.

    A Brigade - Good luck! Guys rummage like restless, forever they have with PPD, damn it ... problems.
    And, along the way, the authorities still can’t decide what to make of them ... either motorized rifle units with mountain training, or combat climbers ...
    Well, the generals can’t decide at all ... (but they are diligently assimilating the money issued for the improvement of the next town).

    Trust your "cats" and sharp ice axes, guys!

      Acclimatization, shelving in the mountains. It's not like on the plain.
      I also love mountains, in the Chechen-Ingush Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic, at the end of the 80s I climbed many districts.
      And the soldiers and officers from the brigade (join) good luck.

            You can’t go far in the snow above 3 thousand, the strengths quickly end even among athletes, because little oxygen, I know for myself :)

            Not so long ago, a sport appeared - mountain skiing (skitouring). When on the mountains. special skiing temporary cover, so that you can go up in the snow, while they also slide down. When necessary with the breeze, the coating can be removed. On such skis in the mountains you can go very good. far (km. 10-20 depending on conditions). You can climb large angles, almost like cats. There might be a good solution than walking waist-high. There is of course the question of what to do with skiing when the snow ends, because it’s hard to drag, but in the winter it’s snowing everywhere in the mountains ... you can basically drop them if it’s a matter of life and death ... I also saw that Serbian special forces trained in the mountains, but they have nothing compared to the Caucasus in the mountains. So it can be an interesting option for the guys.

              Think roughly of it, comrade. Camouflaged skis can make life a lot easier, but when a camus is put on, you should not go down, you need to take it off. When walking uphill with a steepness of up to 40 degrees (which is not a little) it’s quite convenient. Snowshoes are also not a very bad thing, they are light, they can be worn on any shoes, if desired, even on felt boots. Snowshoe speed is worse than skiing, but they have their advantages. It’s important that you walk on them
              You can learn for half a day of classes, which can not be said about the ski ski tour.
              I look at the photos posted and I think, of course, you need to be able to trace. What do we all "bicycles" want to invent for ourselves? An ancient analogue of a ski tour of skis was made by some northern peoples, these are skis on which the fur was fixed to prevent sliding back. Our ancestors wove snowshoes and swamp-walkers from flexible rods.

        American calls Russian:
        - Ivan, horror, we have minus forty on the street! I am standing at a stop and about to freeze to death! What do you do in such a frost when there is no bus for a long time?
        - Men drink beer, children eat ice cream ...

      By the way, you have a photo - the Darial landfill in North Ossetia. From right to left - the peaks of Arauhoh Central, Quarjin and Hiah. On the New Year’s eve, just about the same amount of snow fell there as in your photo :)

    The "second" would not have had to be carried out if the POLITICIANS and BANKERS had not drifted ... The separatists were already practically suppressed, but those who could not be allowed to the army to shoot a cannon intervened.

    Who was there to drift? All for grandmas and around grandmas!
    There Borya Berezovsky taxied, money earned from the lives of our boys!
    I didn’t live to the gallows badly, although there are still alive who sold the info directly from the headquarters to the Czechs!


    Yes, the bastards are alive! And live without fear. In Dagestan, the same thing continues. Each day they beat each other, information is poured left and right, there is no one to trust. There is a double feeling from the article: on the one hand, incredible pride for our worthy brothers in arms, and on the other, bitter bitterness, the Russian army would be so powerful, strong and honest, as united (by and large!) In the recent past. And yet, I want to believe and hope that the evil spirits will receive their Judah’s noose, and the strength of our Army will return! And I wish the mountain brigade strength, health and career growth in combat training! Be an example to everyone and our hope for the peaceful future of our country!

      I met a guy from Dagestan and his wife. We ourselves are truckers, the guy’s hands are golden. Come speak on a visit, I don’t need him to come to us. He got these, we are used to shooting, and we won’t invite friends home. And he rides an American with his wife. And he served in our city in the Airborne Forces. Well, after all, robots from Dagestan do not need this in FIG. By the way, I think there are no equal to Dagestastans, in Russia, as drivers who can make any repairs.

    Trust your "cats" and sharp ice axes, guys!
    drinks


    Yes, reliable. So that you don’t carry the file with you.
    Unfortunately, reliable hoes and cats are not commercially available in Russia, as are shoes.

    "Jaeger" in military terminology for "our understanding" is more associated with foreign armies, especially with the Wehrmacht. [/ Quote]

    Not quite so, the term huntsman for the Russian army is not an alien term - at one time in the Russian Imperial Army so-called selected units equipped with good shooters and trained in individual combat operations. So, in order of succession of traditions, which are now being talked about and little done, these brigades could be called mountain rangers ...

    Such a brigade was sorely missed in the first Chechen one, and the second Chechen one would not have to be carried out.

    It was not a matter of a woman, but what the hell was sitting in the cockpit at that time. This special forces is needed to repel external aggression, it is necessary to agree with its own.
    So of course well done.

    34 Mountain brigade - anthem

    Sergey Gadliya

    Somewhere high above the ground
    Flies proudly Andreevsky flag-
    These are our grandfathers
    Placed empires banner.
    Sparing neither life nor strength,
    Bravely fought with the Turkish Pasha.
    The Russian army is not stronger.
    We are proud of our country.
    Thirty-fourth mountain brigade.
    Descendants of the glorious Russian huntsmen.
    Perfectly coordinated and prepared.
    Glorify the district with his valor.
    The mighty Elbrus looks into the sky,
    Peaks pulls the Caucasian ridge.
    On the shoulders of an age-old snow load.
    Here they once made a vow.
    Our ancestors with a rifle in their hands
    Protected from the Germans of the Caucasus.
    You and I will never forget
    Our ancestors are a great mandate.
    Thirty-fourth mountain brigade.
    Descendants of the glorious Russian huntsmen.
    Perfectly coordinated and prepared.
    Glorify the district with his valor.
    Glory to the warrior of Russia for centuries
    Your courage cannot be compared with anything.
    The flagpole in strong hands
    There is no enemy to defeat you.
    Your strength and your will
    When not to break nobody.
    You are the Russian Great Soldier
    You must keep the fragile world.
