The final part of the exercises "Center-2011" in Kazakhstan was divided into two stages: the reflection of the enemy's naval landing, then actions in defense against ground forces and a counter-offensive.
Unfortunately, at the last moment, the scale of the exercises was decided to be reduced (although they rehearsed more ambitious acts), therefore there were few involved forces.
For the purpose of reconnaissance, speedboats with combat swimmers are the first to approach the shore.
The border squad and the assault landing guard of the coast guard of the frontier service enter into battle with the combat swimmers.
In the role of border guards - our marines. Photos that are not signed by my blog are provided by Igor Rudenko, for which he thanks a lot
After the destruction of the swimmers, the border guards depart, and in the coastal area begins the installation of a mine-explosive fence with the help of aviation mining systems helicopter Mi-8MT
In the sea, meanwhile, a sea battle takes place between the ships of the shock group of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the ships of the escort of the enemy assault squadron, as a result of which serious damage was caused to the flagship of the enemy by artillery fire (naturally, the ships did not shoot at each other, so the battle was depicted as blank shots ). Also several times depicted as “flags” air combat and air strikes, the planes were present, but at high altitudes, so I will not post photos where there is a lot of sky and small airplanes.

A group of enemy barriers and navigation and hydrographic support is sent to the shore.
Positions on the shore to reflect the landing take up units of the Marine Corps.

At the forefront of the defense, the enemy strikes
In response, an artillery battery (D-30 howitzers) disguised in a hollow fire at enemy ships.
An advanced landing party approaches the shore.
On which ZSU open fire
Boats of the enemy put up a smoke screen that should hide the approach of the troop unit and impede the possibility of fire impact on it
Landing of advanced groups to the shore is also accompanied by active smoke.

The enemy is trying to land the main landing forces.

What a sweet goal!

Taak, come out ...
Sailors from the vanguard go on the attack, supporting the landing of the main forces
Our marines firing in defense
I went technique with boats
The concentrated fire of the defenders is very dense and mows the paratroopers
Last heroes die
Everything, the landing is destroyed.
Then we moved to the draw of a defensive battle and the subsequent counterattack at the Oymash training ground.

Unfortunately, this stage was the least spectacular, because it was possible to shoot only behind the backs of the defenders at a distance of several hundred meters, and all this on practically level terrain. Any shot made giant clouds of dust that had been hanging in the air for a long time, which actually brought the shooting to naught. Some shots that managed to capture

Well, now you can tell your impressions about the army of Kazakhstan.
From several conversations I found out that they had a small number of brigades - about one and a half thousand personnel (two infantry battalions, tank company, artillery division, anti-aircraft, support units, etc.). There are conscripts and contract soldiers. In order to avoid manifestations of hazing, the following measures were taken: soldiers of only one conscription serve in one unit. A month before their dismissal, another set is made, newcomers go through KMB in training, and then in full force arrive to serve in the unit, and the demobilized go home.
The discord in the equipment really surprised, especially compared to our soldiers.
The same Belarusian collimator PK-01В. I saw only one fighter on the machine
From the tags directly to the native wafted :)
In the middle of a building, snipers were disguised.
The bag is still of Soviet manufacture with the Red Cross, although the armed forces of Kazakhstan use the Red Crescent to refer to medical units.
Kazakhstan's Defense Minister Dzhaksybekov (by the way, he is civilian) presents a valuable gift to one of the combat swimmers.
Here is for comparison our marines. All uniform
This unit met the Minister of Defense of Kazakhstan near the podium and interested me with their means of communication.

Our officers, who prepared these exercises, did not speak very highly of them, the range is short - 3-4 km with quite big dimensions

The military itself is not too enthusiastic about the basic version, the permeability is low, but the upgraded is completely nothing

Through the bus window, on the move, I photographed an interesting technique that rarely flashes on the screens - the pit machine MDK-3
These are the barracks of the Kazakhstan brigade. Explicit new building, from the outside everything is comparable with those of our parts that were equipped under the Federal Program for contract soldiers
Finally, the various stripes of the Kazakh army
