The basis of the rocket troops today are contract

Today, November 19, Russia celebrates the Day of the Rocket Forces and Artillery.

“In general, the staffing level of the military personnel under the contract of military command bodies, formations and military units of the MTAA today is about 70%. Since 2012, there has been a positive growth in the number of military personnel under contract in positions of ensigns, sergeants and soldiers in the formations and military units of the branch of the armed forces, ”said the major general.

According to him, the level of preparedness of the personnel of the troops has increased significantly due to the increase in the number of exercises and surprise checks.

“We have managed to achieve an increase in the level of MFA training due to regular tactical exercises with the launch of combat missiles and live firing. In 2014 alone, over the course of combat training, more than 24 thousands of fire missions were completed from open and closed fire positions, and about 240 thousands of artillery ammunition were spent. As a result of the readiness checks that took place this year, 23 from 29 (85%) of MTA compounds are rated as “good” "- Matveyevsky said.

Affected at the level of combat training and increasingly popular military competitions.

“The competitions showed the increased professional skills of artillery officers, their ability to perform fire missions with a combat shot, prepare data for firing and defeat the enemy in a difficult tactical situation in unfamiliar terrain”- said the head of MFA.

      Happy holiday to all the gunners! I would also like to congratulate the artillerymen of the Kalmius brigade, whose work I have been observing in my area for four months now, but I think they are prohibited from alcohol. Since 6 am, two Msta-B militias have been firing at the batteries of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Avdiivka.

    Not quite right ....

    The basis of the officer corps (the backbone of the ARMY) and then contract soldiers or conscripts ... whatever you want.

    I join in congratulations to the rocket and artillerymen.

      Unfortunately, the current officers also serve under the contract ... We were drumming without contracts for 25 years ...

      So they said that 70% of the personnel are contract soldiers.

      However, the sum does not change from the rearrangement of the terms - the artilleryman-rocket launcher remains a rocket-man - artilleryman always. Happy holiday to all the missile!

    The growth dynamics of the missile forces' combat capability is evident, contract soldiers played an important role in this.

      smile There’s a difference, the professional officer and the army are his whole life,

      a contractor can be anyone who has served an urgent and decides to connect his future life with the army.

      An increase in the number of contractors is a good indicator ... the prestige and respect of young people is returning to the army ... it pleases, there are prospects.

    In 2014 alone, in the course of combat training, more than 24 thousand firing missions from open and closed firing positions were completed

    Direct fire with an extra barrel is also a fire task ... But who counts them at all?

    Already gathered with a critical comment to get out, I completely forgot, but then the holiday turns out to be! Moreover, just a few hours ago I drove into the uncle’s case, and there the men are sitting at the table in the courtyard (we still have warmth and the anti-alcohol law is not rampant), it turned out that retired officers-gunners note. Happy Gods of War! To all gunners - all the best!

    And to ruin the most powerful division in terms of combat potential in the world, there was enough political will. Military unit 34139.p. Kedrovy. In common parlance, Krasnoyarsk-66. The remains of the past ...
