Kamchatka may remain without ground cover

Kamchatka may remain without ground coverThe seaport in the city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky is now dilapidated. But on the pier there is a huge number of practically new ones concentrated, as they say, back in the factory lubrication of armored personnel carriers, infantry fighting vehicles, floating tanksself-propelled gun mounts. Military equipment is without combat protection, patrol and sentries. Dockers with great joy are photographed for memory, right on the armor. Armored vehicles and heavy guns are being withdrawn from the peninsula under the pretext of modernization. The base of nuclear submarines included in the Pacific fleet in Vilyuchinsk on the Kamchatka Peninsula, it remains without the necessary ground cover.


One of the officers of the General Staff, who had previously served in Kamchatka, sharply criticized such a decision: “Several hundred units of artillery systems and armored vehicles will not make the weather. But such an exposure of the ground cover of the naval naval base in Vilyuchinsk is an extremely wrong decision. And, despite the fact that now there are only a few submarines moored there, but this is a strategic reserve of the Pacific Fleet. Today, the submarine base remains uncovered from modern means of attack, either from the ground or from the air. Previously promised C-400 and reached the destination - "stuck on the road." Completely reduced previously operating anti-sabotage units. Today, the artillery component of protection is being reduced. ”

According to the official version, armored vehicles are being sent for upgrades. According to the head of the military communications department in the Kamchatka-Chukotka river and sea basin, captain of the 2 rank Andrei Zenin, the export of equipment from Kamchatka began with the departure of the T-132 tank to the “mainland” 80. The withdrawal of 150 units of various types of military equipment was planned for this summer. Half have already been sent to Vladivostok. According to A. Zenin, the old T-55 and T-62 tanks, which are in full combat readiness, will be sent next. The officer did not report the final destination of the route, citing military secrets. At the same time, he confirmed that the equipment was fully on alert and for each unit special passports were issued to the Ministry of Defense.

The military claim that the “armor” is being sent to the 206 Ussuri tank repair military plant for modernization. But, as it is known, only tanks and any other types of weapons will be repaired and improved there. However, in the same direction are sent and artillery systems "Acacia", "Hyacinth" and "Peony".

Transportation of such "flowers" in the country is very expensive. For example, sending a car from the Kamchatka Peninsula to Vladivostok is estimated at an average of 50 thousand rubles. And the transportation of heavy armor naturally cost much more expensive. The Ministry of Defense already has a debt to the Kamchatka Shipping Company about 30 million rubles for the previously completed transportation.

Today, the warehouses at the Ussuri tank repair plant are completely filled with a huge amount of armored vehicles and under Komsomolsk-on-Amur. For several years now, rumor has spread among Kamchatka officers that in the near future Russia will not be able to avoid a war with neighboring China. And we have practically no chance of winning, given the apparent inequality of power. As a result of military reform, which is actively carried out in the Far East of Russia, today there are no full-fledged divisions left in the region, and in order to avoid a repetition of the defeat of what happened in the distant 1941 year, the Defense Ministry is tightening equipment and artillery from all over the country and has them closer to the border a great friendly neighbor. " At the same time, according to Andrei Margiev, a Kamchatka military observer, the exported equipment is either intended to replenish its own warehouses, or the new “Viktor Bout” from the Ministry of Defense is secretly planning to sell this equipment to a country where khaki wheels are in great demand. .

    Well, expect that the withdrawn technique will be replaced by an equivalent at least. After all, it will end up at all that they will not return nichrome. Under the USSR, the base guard was not calculated from the ceiling, well, that’s what it does!

    It's sad to read that. Everyone does contrary to common sense. Although I have not seen him since the time of the Bialowieza trio, who ditched the country.

      I agree with the statement. However, you can dream about it: maybe our leadership secretly conceived some tricky combination, having considered all the options for the development of events. And suddenly, if there is any conflict, then trump cards will immediately fall, which no one knew about. Rave? Yes! But I want to look at the whole mess positively ...

    They would take the Topol regiment to a clean field and leave it unguarded.

      Considering how the reform is going, the regiment will be protected by women from the VOKhR armed with SKS. Mess, damn it!

    The reason for the removal of all equipment is incomprehensible. I hope that after modernization it will be transferred to dangerous areas.

      Yes, no, I just optimize the costs of the MO. In fact, it’s stupid to guard one submarine base with the forces of a tank division, all the more I have little idea where in Kamchatka you can ride a tank, mountains and taiga all around.
      However. in the event that the Russian Federation militarily loses Primorye, this will be the last gateway to the Pacific Ocean.

        Well, the tanks are there to prevent the landing, or its elimination in the event of a landing. The air defense there was also strong. The Foxhounds Regiment in Yelizovo. From the point of view of the remoteness of the theater of operations and all three components (air-land-sea), the landing operation to capture the peninsula was impossible, or required strategic planning with the involvement of a powerful strike force with a tightening of reserves. What is going on right now is not clear.

          300-400 paratroopers in the mountains with the support of aviation will starve any base.

    Maybe it really doesn’t need to guard the submarine base with hundreds of tanks - if the Pindos hit it, then you don’t need tanks and missile defense missile defense - there’s an account for minutes - and the tanks don’t have time to start and have nowhere to go and there’s no one to shoot at

    And in Primorye, they have potential goals and the meaning of life. I agree that this is optimization - we are not the USSR and should use what is fully

    Previously, 25 Army Corps were stationed in Kamchatka. Then it was reduced, and the motorized rifle division remained in Yelizovo, with its specific tasks: defending the sea coast, preventing the landing of amphibious assaults, etc. Infantry and tankers have never been involved in guarding a nuclear submarine base; this is an exclusive prerogative of the Pacific Fleet command. Then she was no longer needed by the CB and she was transferred to the Pacific Fleet as a coast guard brigade.
    But this, as they say, is history. Why take out all 132 T-80 tanks at once !? I myself am a tanker, I will never believe that they all ran out of overhaul resources at once. When could it end, if cars came to Kamchatka in 89-90. There is so much you will not run into their area. Nonsense..!!!

      Well, of course, their task was not directly involved in guarding the base, it’s just that the adversary, when evaluating the availability of the base, considers not only the regime of changing guards at the base’s checkpoint. The overall size of the force grouping around the base is an important thing. And the tank division is certainly not strategic aviation, but around 300 km around it it makes everyone respect itself.
