"People-frogs", "sea devils", "knights of the depths" - as soon as they do not call the combat swimmers, who became very popular half a century ago. "Sea Devils" are jumping with a parachute, they bury faster than others in the ground, swim in great depths ... They say that for these "universal soldiers" there are no obstacles and impossible tasks.

The first period. Prerequisites (1930-1941gg)

The idea of ​​sabotage goes back centuries. However, as for the implementation of any idea, the prerequisites are required. In this case, it is the presence of special equipment and breathing apparatus. Without going into history their creation at the beginning of the 20 century, I will say that in our country only in 1931-1938 years were released several types of the simplest individual breathing apparatus (IDA). In 1934, a hydro-overalls were created, isolating the body and head of a person from water. In the fleets, rescue specialist positions were created and regulatory documents were developed. In the affairs of the staff of the Pacific Fleet (Pacific Fleet) there is a mention of the first submarine personnel leaving the submarine (PL). The output was carried out from a depth of 10 meters. This exercise took place on July 6 1936 of the brigade PL, which at that time was commanded by the captain of the first rank Kholostyakov G.N. The third-rank military doctor NK Krivosheenko led the training for the exercise and the release of the personnel. The purpose of the exercise is to confirm the possibility of escaping personnel from a sunken submarine. However, proper conclusions on this doctrine were not made. Having checked the state of the individual rescue case (ISD) on the pF of the Pacific Fleet, the first-rank medical officer Savichev II, third-ranking N. Krivosheenko N. and the third-ranking military engineer Krol GF At the beginning of 1938, they reported on the state of affairs to the Military Council and proposed the creation of training courses for instructors at ISD. Courses started 9.10 1938.

Maldives diving

In the mid-thirties in the USSR, the idea of ​​disembarking saboteurs ashore with the help of diving equipment from a submerged submarine came to the development of rescue equipment for crews of submarines.

Savichev, Krivosheenko and Krol during the leadership and teaching courses on the individual rescue case (ISD) came to the confidence that the individual breathing apparatus (IDA) can get the same value as the parachute in the airborne troops. Moreover, they decided to prove it in practice. To this end, they carried out a huge research and design work aimed at ensuring such actions and improving the available equipment and technology.

In October 1938 of the year they prepared a plan for a special exercise, which was approved by the Commander of the Pacific Fleet, N.G. Kuznetsov, flagship of the second rank, on October 19. The chief medical officer was appointed a first-rank military doctor Savichev I.I. The leaders are the third-rank military doctor NK Krivosheenko. and third-rank military engineer Krol GF

Exercise "on the exit of fighters from the submarine torpedo apparatus in the individual equipment of a submariner from the depths of 15-20 meters, in order to trim anti-submarine networks to force anti-submarine obstacles in submarines, replace crews in the submerged position of a submarine, disembark landing for reconnaissance and commit sabotage attacks on shore "with real use weapons and explosives, ran from 22 to October 24. The exit was carried out in the Bay of Ulysses from the submarine W-112, commanded by the captain of the 3 rank Berestovsky. The exercise was attended by representatives of the Military Council of the Pacific Fleet.

All the tasks facing the participants were successfully completed. The experience gained in these exercises was invaluable. Suffice it to say that it was he who was used to create parts of the Special Forces of the Navy in the 50s. The exercise leaders prepared an extensive and detailed report on the exercise. In conclusion, they wrote that it is necessary "to pay exceptional attention to the issues of penetration into the bay, forcing underwater barriers with the use of COI, for which it is necessary to create experimental groups on the seas or one centralized group."

Reports were sent to the authorities, the experience of the exercises was found to be interesting, positive, and ... forgotten. In 1940, similar exercises were conducted on the Black Sea Fleet, but on a smaller scale. Moreover, the Black Sea Fleet did not know about the experience of the Pacific Fleet and claimed priority.

Only in the 1941 year, forty people were selected from the personnel of the first special brigade of the marines, who, after passing a medical commission, began a course of light swimming. To this end, the submarine “Pravda” was allocated to them. Since the beginning of the war, this group became part of a special-purpose company.

The second period (1941-1945gg.)
Creation of RON - a prototype of modern parts of the Special Forces of the Navy

The Great Patriotic War began. In the conditions of the complicated situation in the Baltic direction, the intelligence department of the Red Banner Baltic Fleet headquarters formed seven naval reconnaissance units to solve complex operational tasks and conduct reconnaissance in the enemy rear in the coastal zone. The commanders of two of them subsequently became commanders of the first units of the Special Forces of the Navy. This, at that time, senior lieutenant Y.V. and captain Potekhin G.V.
Under blockade conditions, penetration into the enemy’s rear by land became very difficult. The most convenient and secretive remained only the sea route with the use of light water-climbing equipment.

Special Purpose Company

At the end of July 1941, Rear Admiral F. Krylov. , reporting to the representative of the Supreme High Command Admiral Isakov, who arrived in Leningrad, expressed concern that trained divers after the evacuation of a diving school from Vyborg may be sent to infantry units. He proposed to leave them in the fleet, creating a special reconnaissance unit from them, whose personnel would go to the rear of the fascists in light swimming equipment. This proposal was approved and verbally agreed by the staff of the company, which included one hundred and forty-six people. 11 August 1941 was signed by the order of the People's Commissar of the Navy on the formation of a special purpose company (RON). Her commander on the recommendation of Krylov was appointed Lieutenant Prokvatilov Ivan Vasilyevich.

By 7 in September, the preparation and knocking together of the new division was completed and the company was transferred to the reconnaissance department (RO) of the Baltic Fleet headquarters. She was directly subordinate to the deputy chief of the Regional Office for Intelligence Intelligence, Captain Third Rank Bekreneev L.K.

The first combat operation was conducted by RON intelligence officers in September 1941, when a difficult situation developed in the Vyborg region. The Finns tried to cut off the withdrawal of the 23 Army, and landed with machine guns and light artillery on one of the islands of the Vyborg Bay, and thus cut off the exit from the port to the sea.

The company commander received an order to prepare the personnel for a secret landing on the island and the destruction of the enemy within three days. Lieutenant Prokhvatilov with a group of scout divers for two days revealed the position of the Finnish landing force and also checked the condition of the bottom near the island. On the crucial night, fifty scout divers in lightweight diving equipment landed on the island, but the Finns had left it in advance, leaving guns and machine guns without locks. As it turned out later, a Finnish intelligence agent penetrated the RON’s ranks and transmitted to the enemy on the radio about upcoming actions, but was finally exposed. After that, all that concerns the operation, knew only the commander. The task was brought to the direct performers only in the last hours and in the starting point for the movement. The motto of the company was the phrase: "The Scout does not dissolve the language."

The company was originally intended to interact with undercover intelligence, but at the same time reconnaissance divers searched, lifted and neutralized bottom magnetic mines, and were repeatedly involved in retrieving documents from sunken ships, inspecting ports to detect sunken ships, barriers and mines. Nevertheless, solving all these tasks, the company fully justified its name, having conducted more than two hundred reconnaissance and sabotage operations using lightweight diving equipment during the war.

Experience other fleets

It cannot be said that in other fleets the attention was not paid to the creation of subdivision scout divers. However, the training of these units and the experience of their use were very small.
In the Black Sea Fleet, by April 1944, a special-purpose reconnaissance detachment consisting of ten men was created. He was headed by a former RON platoon commander, Senior Lieutenant Osipov. But the detachment participated in only one combat operation. On 5 April, a detachment was landed from surface ships near the village of Lyubimovka with the task of conducting reconnaissance ships entering and leaving the port of Sevastopol. The detachment regularly broadcast obtained intelligence information by radio. On May 10th, the detachment completed its combat mission and was evacuated to the location of our troops.

After the capture of Sevastopol, the DRO reconnaissance divers conducted a survey of the sunken German ships and removed various documents from them that were valuable for command.

At the end of 1945, the RUN was disbanded.

After the 1938 of the Pacific Fleet, annually, submarine reconnaissance groups of submarine reconnaissance were conducted annually in the Pacific Fleet. And during the war years, such exercises were carried out for the purpose of combat training. In the year 1945, from the experience of these exercises, a manual was also developed on disembarking WG from watercrafts. However, the formation of the hundred and fortieth detachment of the fleet began only in January 1945 year with the end of March 15. But checking the establishment of the unit revealed an unsatisfactory state of affairs.

In the end, the detachment was formed on the basis of the 181 reconnaissance detachment of the headquarters of the Northern Fleet, under the command of the Hero of the Soviet Union, Senior Lieutenant V.N. This determined the nature of his subsequent actions. In August 1945, the squad had several brilliant operations in a number of Korean ports, but did not use diving equipment.

In the Northern Fleet, the divisions of scout divers were not created.

Disbanding RON

In the 1944 year, against the backdrop of the tremendous success of our troops, the combat activities of the RON were disproportionately small. Failing to appreciate the prospects of this unit, in October 1944goda, the Emergency Department of the NMS makes a decision on the transfer of the RON and its property to the emergency fighting service of the Red Banner Baltic Fleet. However, the chief of staff of the Red Banner Baltic Fleet and its intelligence department, as well as the company commander, did not agree with this decision. They considered it necessary to have similar units of Prokhvacilov in the fleets and in peacetime even proposed to create on the basis of the company a school of divers-reconnaissance intelligence officers of the General Staff. This idea was supported by the officers of the GMGS department of Mr. 3 of rank Shashenkov D.U., of Mr. of 1 of rank L. Bekrenev. and Colonel NS Frumkin, but their opinion was not taken into account.

In September-October 1945, the GMG inspected the Baltic Fleet. The commission concluded: “It is not advisable to have reconnaissance detachments at the Red Banner Baltic Fleet intelligence department in peacetime.” This conclusion was made to the inspection report, which was signed by the head of the General Staff, Admiral Isakov, who created a company in his 1941 year. He wrote: “It is not necessary to prepare footage of intelligence officers in peacetime.” October 14, 1945, the Red Banner Baltic Fleet Commander issued Order No. 0580 about disbanding RON in time before 20.10.45. The first reconnaissance diver division in the World ceased to exist.

The third period (1950-1960)
The struggle for the reconstruction of parts of the special intelligence of the Navy and the creation of the MCI.
Fighting to recreate parts of scout divers

In the post-war years, Captain 1 of the rank of Shashenkov Dmitry Uvarovich and Rear Admiral Bekrenev Leonid Konstantinovich repeatedly appealed to the command of the Navy with the initiative to recreate special forces in the fleets, but all their proposals were rejected. Only at the end of 1952, the appeal of Rear Admiral Bekrenyov L.K., where he refers to the experience of creating special forces units abroad and in the Land Forces of our country, had its effect. On May 29, 1952, the issue of creating special-purpose units was reviewed by the Vice-Admiral Kuznetsov N.G., Navy Minister of the Navy. and approved in the “Plan to strengthen the intelligence of the Navy,” submitted by Rear Admiral Bekrenev 24 January 1953. At a meeting with the heads of directorates of the GRU MGSH, the Minister confirmed the decision to establish separate naval reconnaissance divisions in the fleets, primarily on the Black Sea Fleet and the Navy's 4 (Baltic).

After the pilot exercises conducted in August of 1953, which confirmed the effectiveness of the diving reconnaissance units, the need to create them was confirmed and 24 of the Navy General Staff Directorate on June 1953 of June, the 6 naval reconnaissance point was opened with the end of 1953 in October. According to the researchers, the command of the Navy when signing the directive was not firmly convinced of the need to create units in the intelligence system and was awaiting confirmation from the test exercises. Therefore, it confirmed what was created earlier. Captain of the first rank Yakovlev Yevgeny Vasilyevich was appointed the commander of the point.

Creation of parts of the modern special forces of the Navy

In September 1953 of the year, despite the fact that the chosen location did not fully meet the requirements of secrecy, it was decided to locate the 6 MRP in the area of ​​the Round Bay of Sevastopol.

By 1955, the 6 MRP completed the organizational design and began to conduct combat training for divers with reconnaissance from surface ships and airlift, and an educational base was created. In 1954, the Navy's General Staff Directive of 15 in October opens the NRF in the Navy's 4 (Baltic Fleet). The commander appointed Colonel Potekhin Georgy Vladimirovich who was previously deputy commander of the 6 MRP. The point is located a few kilometers from the sea and sixteen kilometers from Baltiysk. In general, the locations for the location of the points were chosen as specially unsuccessful. During the formation of the MCI in the Pacific Ocean, according to the directive of the General Staff of the Naval Forces from 18.03 1955, the Maliy Ulysses Bay was determined as the place of dislocation, near Vladivostok, but there were no rooms there. The commander of the item, captain of the second rank, Kovalenko Pyotr Prokopievich informs the management about this, and the item repeatedly changes its location. Only at the beginning of December the personnel of the MCI was relocated to the place of their permanent deployment on Russky Island.

In February, 1956 of the year, on the instructions of the Navy intelligence and based on the experience of its activities, 6 MCI develops “Basic requirements for the deployment of reconnaissance and sabotage parts of intelligence”. But this document didn’t really governing. There was not enough money for the construction of the special operations base.

The absence of normal conditions for the deployment of the MRP forces the Northern Fleet Commander to request the Commander-in-Chief to postpone the creation of the MRP from 1955 to 1957 a year. The request was satisfied and the MCI began to be formed according to the directive of the General Staff of the Navy of November 26 of 1957. The commander of the MCI was appointed Lt. Col. Belyak EM.

Due to the fact that the created points were completed with recruits, there were not enough experienced instructors. The sixth point, as the most experienced, had to share trained personnel.

In December, 1958, the states of all items were increased. This initiative was made by Mr. 1ranga Shashenkov D.U. He proposed a new staffing structure, which made it possible to bring the daily routine closer to the combat one. He also set the task of mastering the underwater movement (PSD) and tugs.

Combat training is intensifying. Appears all the new equipment and equipment. Despite all the difficulties, by 1960 the year ends, basically, knocking together and arranging parts of the divers - scouts.

Fourth period (1960 - 1992)
Combat training and testing equipment

The total number of personnel of the Navy special intelligence units of the three points was increased to two hundred and seventy people. In this part of the special forces of the Navy were quite a long time. At the same time, the tasks of preparing the registration structure for their units in the case of wartime were laid down at the MCI. In May, 1960, under the leadership of Captain 1ranga Shashenkova D.U. A combat training program has been developed for the assignment team called up for fees from the reserve.

In 1961, the 6 MRP was transferred to the Pervomaisky Island, Ochakov, and in 1966, by the June directive of the General Staff of the USSR Ministry of Defense, eight divers of scouts under the command of Captain Chernoy M.S. transferred from the Caspian Sea and included in the 6 MCI. They are entrusted with the task of conducting tests of machinery and the preparation of the registration composition. In the autumn of 1962, in the village of Ordzhonikidze, near Feodosiya, on the initiative of D.U. Shashenkov, tests were carried out of the possibilities and procedure for transporting airborne weapons and special equipment of military units. Carriers of divers, towing vehicles, canisters for transporting wounded and prisoners, cargo containers, mines, communications and electronic intelligence were tested. From this group, they were able to fly over the air and get more mobility.

As part of the Caspian flotilla, the item was formed only in 1969 by the directive of the General Staff of the Navy and included, according to the state, about fifty people. The point was in Baku.

In early June, the 1968 of the year, the 6 MCI was converted to a special-purpose 17 brigade.

Special equipment used by divers - reconnaissance aircraft was developed and improved in the scientific laboratory of special diving equipment at the institute №11 ACS Navy created by the WMD directive created by 15 June 1953 of the year, due to the size of the Navy intelligence. Initially, the laboratory staff was only six people. Subsequently, as the special forces of the Navy, the staffs of the laboratory were subjected to all sorts of changes. In October, 1961, the laboratory was transformed into a department numbering fourteen people. This state lasted until the end of the sixties.

In 1967, service teams of underwater vehicles from 14 man and 6 electromechanical workshop specialists were introduced to the states of the MCI.

In 1968-69, the units of the Special Forces of the Navy are starting to create a technical base for the maintenance of design and estimate documentation.

Work is underway to improve the organizational structure, the material base, as well as equipment and weapons are being improved. Developed new weapons, both small and engineering.
Despite the difficulties, combat training is being improved. In January 1983, the point is re-created on the Federation Council. The staffing level of the units of the Special Forces of the Navy is increasing.

In the course of the exercise, new variants of the delivery of divers to the enemy’s rear are being tested. In the 17 brigade on the initiative and under the leadership of the deputy commander of the unit, Colonel Pozdnyakov V.D. in the mid-eighties, parachute jumps from the PV-3 parachute into the water from supersmall heights. He himself set the World Record by taking the jump from 50 meters, and S. Galaev made the jump from 80 meters in diving equipment. In addition to the BP program, in the eighties, 17 was engaged in the training of divers for the special forces of the KGB Vympel, as well as a number of other subdivisions and structures of the security agencies of the USSR.

Divers of this brigade took part in the underwater work after the crash of the Nakhimov motor ship.
Scout divers took an active part in testing diving equipment and equipment, as well as underwater means of motion. Many of them for the tests were marked by awards of the motherland.
The commandos of the Baltic point took part in the demining of the Suez Canal, and also ensured the security of the negotiation process in Malta and in Reykjavik.

In peacetime, divers reconnaissance aircraft constantly carried out combat service on the ships of their fleets and were ready, at the command of their leadership, to commence combat missions in the rear of the enemy. The last years of the eighties can be considered the heyday of the special intelligence units of the Navy. In the early nineties, new transformations began - the forerunners of the collapse. So 1 January 1990, the 17 special purpose team, which was part of the Black Sea fleet, was again reorganized into a reconnaissance point - RP 1464. The categories of commander and deputies were reduced in accordance with the staff of the item. The staffing structure was also aligned to the RP staff.

The modern stage of the history of the special forces of the Navy
Ochakov. 1992-1995 and beyond

By definition, the Black Sea Fleet special purpose intelligence unit was to remain in the fleet. However, this did not happen.

The details of the behind-the-scenes games that brought the brigade to the Ukrainian oath are still a mystery. An important role in this was played by the brigade commander, Captain First Rank Karpenko, who had a home and communications in Ochakov, who disappeared during the redeployment of the brigade to Russia. Supported the idea of ​​moving into the fleet of Ukraine and the chief of staff captain second rank Udov, who was later dismissed from the Armed Forces and now lives in the city of Moscow. Whatever it was, once a lieutenant colonel, a representative of the General Staff of Ukraine, arrived on Pervomaisky Island. Two or three days later, in the morning construction of the Karpenko brigade, he said: “Russia refused from us! Therefore, those who will not take the oath of Ukraine from tomorrow may consider themselves dismissed from the Armed Forces. ”

A significant part of the officers refused to take the oath. Wanting to serve Russia, they transferred to the Baltic, as well as to the North and the Pacific Ocean. These were the most trained officers. Some of the midshipmen and officers, mostly young ones, who were not kept in the Navy, simply quit. In the part there were those who remained a little before retirement and tied to Ochakov by family ties, that is, married to local ladies.

With the departure of a number of competent officers, their vacancies were filled by people far from the specifics of the work of a brigade of combat swimmers. The level of combat training began to fall. Ukrainization quickly bore fruit.

A directive order appeared to speak, command and maintain documentation in the Ukrainian language. After some time, the statute came in Ukrainian. But how to conduct classes if all the governing documents are written in Russian? Among other things, the new “masters of life” intervened in the holy of holies - mobilization readiness of the unit, and also changed the principles of manning the brigade. Previously, the units were physically strong guys who had undergone preliminary training in DOSAAF and lived in the Odessa and Nikolaev regions. This allowed, in a threatened period, to maneuver a part of the retired sailors assigned to the brigade to wartime states in the shortest possible time. Now, the RUKhov ideologues insistently demanded that a part be completed by the natives of Western Ukraine, known for its nationalist sentiments, even in Soviet times. The worst thing is that the stratification began in the officer and midshipman environment. The statements of individual officers to their Russian colleagues became more frequent: “Leave your hungry Russia!” Literally, everything began to fall apart, and a part famous for all of the USSR Armed Forces with the level of their combat training was no longer able to work out a number of the most difficult topics of the diving training program due to the lack of the required number of diving specialists of the appropriate level.

Soon another problem was added - personnel, but at a higher level. The specifics of the activities of special-purpose units require special knowledge. The specifics of the activities of special-purpose units of the Navy require this knowledge twice. It is not enough to read a book about the scouts or watch the movie “Sommando”. Nevertheless, people who came from Russia and wanted to serve Ukraine were appointed to a number of command posts in the management headquarters, but they had nothing to do with the special forces, and even the naval officers. What can anyone know about the procedure for the use of Navy special intelligence units officer, who had previously been involved in planning combat training for an armored division? Nevertheless, it was precisely such people who began to give orders to the unit, about the specifics of the work of which they had an idea only for American film fighters. Having seen fairy tales about how Rambo with a stone knocks down a helicopter or how Schwarzennegger jumps out of a jet plane taking off, these people began to make their own adjustments to military regulations that were then heavily watered by those who created the special forces of the Navy. For example, such a “smart guy” takes the governing document in Russian, where it is written that a special-purpose group should make a thirty-kilometer march on cross-country for twelve hours, and thinks: “Well, these lazy Muscovites”. The average speed of a person is five kilometers per hour. Thirty divide by five, we get six hours. We throw two hours on the cross-path and get eight hours. ”This is how a new standard is born, which is impossible to fulfill. All that this “specialist” himself has never made this march in his life. On the basis of such calculations, special forces are assigned tasks that are physically impossible to accomplish.
In this very period began the division of the fleet, which almost ended the war.

Little by little, the conflict connected with the division of the Black Sea Fleet, which was born first at the diplomatic level, began to flow to the level of military executors. War-continuation policy.

The so-called “threatened period” of the transition of politics from one state to another has arisen. On one summer day of November 29, the brigade headquarters received a combat decree on the preparation and withdrawal of fifteen groups in the area of ​​deployment of the Black Sea Fleet, as well as directly to the city of Sevastopol to demonstrate power in front of Russian sailors. The groups received so many explosives and ammunition, the total amount of which would be enough to crush the entire City of Glory to Russian sailors. Having all this arsenal with them, the special forces began to work out training tasks, diving into the water in the immediate vicinity of the ships of the Russian fleet. But besides the demonstration tasks, the special forces groups had very specific combat missions in case of an attempt to bring the Russian ships into the sea. If someone naively believes that the fifteen special-purpose groups from the Black Sea Fleet reconnaissance post is a trifle, then he is very mistaken. Even one group of underwater saboteurs can complicate the work of a naval base. And in Sevastopol, they operated 1995. The most experienced officer was given the most responsible task. The group, which included ten officers and midshipmen, was to be captured and held until the arrival of the main forces of the headquarters of the Russian Black Sea Fleet. Only a lucky moment at the last moment prevented a war.

According to the evidence of midshipmen who continued their service in the Ochakov RP, the level of combat training of the unit is currently below the level of the Mariinsky Depression. In part, there are almost no specialists able to walk independently on the carriers. Descents under water are practically not carried out due to the lack of the GCS - there is no money.

In Russia

The units of the special forces of the Navy, which are part of the Pacific Fleet, the Baltic Fleet and the Northern Fleet practically did not survive such shocks as fell at the Ochakov Point. But, of course, they were fully affected by the trends affecting the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in the last years of the 20th century.

This is not the case with the RP, which was part of the Caspian Flotilla. This item, after complicating the situation in Baku, was transferred to the Leningrad region, and after the release of the RP of the Black Sea Fleet from its structure, it was relocated under Novorossiysk and became part of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.

Part of the special forces of the Navy before the second Chechen never participated in the fighting, despite the fact that even in the time of the war in Afghanistan many officers wrote reports asking them to send them to the region to gain combat experience. However, the leadership of the special intelligence of the Navy did not respond to these requests. For the transfer of combat experience in the special forces of the Navy sent officers and warrant officers who had previously served in the ground units and participated in the BD. However, at the beginning of the second Chechen company, the situation changed because part of the marines in peacetime did not have intelligence units. It was the tasks of military intelligence in the advancement of units of the MP were assigned to units of special forces of the Navy. However, in February-March, the groups were recalled and returned to their PPD.

At present, units of the special reconnaissance of the Navy continue to improve the level of combat training.
There are only a few dozen such people throughout the Pacific Fleet. Anti-sabotage group of swimmers - the elite of the sea special forces. The selection is strict - the applicant for the title of fur seal must be completely healthy. Especially carefully military doctors check the stability of the psyche.

On the chevron divisions slogan - "find and destroy." The main task - the fight against enemy saboteurs. Pacific fur seals are real universal soldiers. Can work both under water and on land. Own skills of hand-to-hand fight, explosive business. The fleet does not spare money for equipping special forces.

In order to quietly approach the enemy's ship, combat swimmers have to disembark a few kilometers from the target. To overcome this distance as quickly as possible, to save air and strength, such an underwater tug helps.

The technical characteristics of this device are classified as “secret”, but, according to the military, its speed and reserve are enough to perform any combat missions. Armed with the devils special underwater guns and pistols. They shoot not a bullet, but needles.

Many people dream of getting into the special forces. Some go to the divers for romance, others for the thrill. But the main criterion is the desire to serve the motherland.

The use of the detachment of the Pacific Fleet combat swimmers is also in peacetime. Last year, sea devils took part in an operation to free the Russian vessel Moscow University from Somali pirates. Then everything went well, no one was hurt. As the divers themselves say, “we work for this.”

Marine Special Forces: Submarine Ninja

It is worthwhile to look into the oath of naval intelligence of the Navy or the underwater special forces of the GRU, where there are patriotic phrases “A saboteur-intelligence officer is a man without nerves. This is a suicide bomber. His life does not belong to him or his parents, it belongs to the Motherland, ”pride and calmness for our country immediately appear.
We know little about the activities of the special forces' intelligence units, but one thing is known - their service is dangerous and difficult. The documentary will reveal some secrets of the maritime special forces.
