18-I motorized rifle brigade. Combat vehicles

For several years now, the team has been gradually re-equipping itself with new models of equipment. So, after forcing Georgia to peace, the old Tanks T-62 were replaced by T-72B and T-72B (M)

The BTR-80 armored personnel carriers are gradually being replaced with new and modernized BTR-82А with cannon armament. This year must undergo a complete replacement


Communication technology is also gradually being replaced by a more modern one.

KSHM (station of average power) P-166-0.5

Used and tested KSHM R-142H (far right)

The Thor anti-aircraft missile systems were also recently delivered to the brigade.

The fleet of motor vehicles has also been significantly updated, adding new KAMAZ and URAL vehicles.

Samples of armored trucks based on KAMAZ-5350 also arrive.

Automobile field kitchens on the basis of ZIL-131 have already exhausted their resources, that is why kungi-kitchens themselves were removed from them and put on new KAMAZ trucks. This also ensures the unification of the fuel brigade, a full transition to a solarium is planned (recall that the ZIL-131 had a gasoline engine)

Fire truck ATs 6,0-40

Repair equipment is also updated.
In the next two photos, how are the workshops called?

Inside view

For a long time I wanted to look at the troops of electronic warfare and now, finally, I managed.
Some equipment company EW brigade.
RP-330KPK - command post of the head of the EW brigade. The complex is intended for collecting and processing information, conducting radio intelligence and managing company command posts and columns. At the same time can manage 10 stations. Radio complex is analyzed at the complex, priorities are set for all workstations, which are suppressed first and second, target designation is distributed.
I didn’t take any photos outside (seemingly ordinary kung), here’s a view from inside

Brief explanation of the filling complex

Automated station interference P-330Zh "Resident"

Power supply with transmit antenna unit

The station is designed to solve the following tasks: detection, direction finding and radio suppression of wearable mobile stations of Inmarsat and Iridium mobile satellite communication systems; detection, direction finding and radio suppression of base stations of cellular communication systems of the GSM 1900 standard; radio suppression of navigation equipment of consumers of satellite communication systems NAVSTAR (GPS). The product can work both in the autonomous mode, and in the paired pair, both the master and the slave under the guidance of the complex Р-330КМК.

Any of the above signals are silenced completely within 20-30 radius of kilometers from the operating station. Their communication is also muffled, so before turning on the suppression of radio signals, a conditional signal is transmitted through the communication between the units, informing them of full radio silence and turning off radio communications. The activation signal is transmitted via wired communication, via messengers, etc.

The electronic reconnaissance assets of the enemy will not be able to detect the station after it starts work, since The “resident” will simply crush them, but the enemy may try to use missiles that lead to radio sources, but for this purpose, the engineering units have radio jamming devices that take the missile to the side, and there are special simulators in the RHBZ company that can create an induction trap.
After exposure to the enemy, EW complexes must quickly change position in order not to get hit by the enemy. Even if the station itself is not detected, the enemy may attempt to inflict area artillery strikes on the intended location square.
Station interiors

Inside view with brief explanations

Station radio intelligence and radio suppression P-934

Entered the brigade in 2007. The station can solve the following tasks: search, detection, analysis of signals, as well as interfering with VHF communication lines aviation the enemy. This can be translated into Russian as follows: disruption of the ability to target enemy aircraft with the help of air guides and air command posts, disruption of the ability to transmit data from reconnaissance aircraft. The range is about 50 km, in height up to 10 km. The station can operate in three modes:
- centralized (from the control point);
- master / slave (paired with another station);
- autonomous.


Inside view with brief explanations

The EW service conducts radio intelligence only for its own purposes - for radio suppression. If the goal is not necessary to obtain information, then it is suppressed, if there is such a need, then the goal is transmitted to electronic intelligence.
In the reconnaissance battalion there is a special company in which there is the equipment and equipment of the DER.
In the mobile mobile radio intelligence complexes it is possible to determine the location of the radio signal and listen to VHF communications, GSM networks.
The insides of one of the kungs
Places GSM operator and VHF

The post of the translator was not given, because there was a wares equipment

Radio intelligence stations designed to determine the source of the signal and its location. If I am not mistaken, then it is "Tarany". Unfortunately, the voice recorder did not work and all brief explanations (the accompanying person was very taciturn) disappeared.

During the service, it was possible to communicate with the operators of similar complexes operating in Chechnya. They said very little, remember one story. “We don’t see the results of our work, but sometimes we hear them. Somehow they intercepted the conversation of one of the militants, who in the guise of a civilian was driving somewhere on a tractor, simultaneously talking on the phone about past operations. He reported to someone: he laid bombs, so much was blown up, etc. They gave his coordinates where to go. Apparently, they covered him with artillery, because the conversation was interrupted half-word, drowned out by the roar of the explosion. "

Inside view

We translate the spirit, after familiarizing with the secrets of the Motherland, and look at a simple armored vehicle for a snack.
In the anti-tank brigade division there are upgraded BRDM-2M

According to the state there are two of them - one commander machine of the battalion commander (battery), the other - in the control department

The driver speaks about the car very flatteringly - more power, a diesel engine with turbocharging (as opposed to gasoline on a conventional BRDM-2), a system for centralized control of air pressure in the tires

On the highway 90-100 km / h issues. It was also tested in the mountains (which is interesting, the scouts tested) - we are very passable, thanks to the new D-245.9 engine, hp 136 power. Because of this, and removed the extra wheels that were on the old model and fell on the sides

Insides of the machine
Finally, the side doors appeared

To the right of the left door - ammunition for KPVT

And this is a rare guest of TV screens - sound station of average power ZS-82 - weapon agitators. Broadcast range to 6 km

    Yes ... dualistic feelings. On the one hand, a good thing is updating technology. On the other hand, all this was the best 20-30 years ago ... all this was developed back in that other country. And now it would be necessary to rearm for something more modern, damn it !!

    Inside the broadcasting station is a cassette recorder. Five years later, something will not be found!

      MaxArt, in a different state, and not in another country. Usually, as they say - "not in the USSR", but "in the USSR", i.e. "during (or during) Soviet power".

      It looks, of course, nice.

    The authors, of course, well done. They drove to the former 42nd motorway for training. Made two good photo stories.
    But, in places, they go too far. Or agents everywhere seem to me .....
    Quote: "Unfortunately, the recorder did not work and all the brief explanations (the attendant was very taciturn) have sunk into oblivion."
    But in the next photos they showed a lot, for the "taciturn escort".

    ... another vyser vysyoblyudov ....
    So, after Georgia was forced into peace, the old T-62 tanks were replaced by T-72B and T-72B (M) .....
    go nuts rearmament.
    Judging by the cleanliness, the RR and EW complex never left the park and was never used anywhere. In the infantry, this is the most wretched and untrained unit, only for costumes and guards. (because there are no one to teach this technique to platoon / company motorized infantry tankers, and they, respectively, will not be able to teach their operators anything). The Taran complex even before the birth of the author of this vyser was considered obsolete (although inside the newer environment than you had to see, it was slightly modernized to see).
    RR Company in the 42th motorized division of the former (now kanesha, maybe something has changed) and before consisted of ... let's say, not very understanding what the former tankers were for, and worked only at the expense of the seconded ones.

    And which T-62 are replaced by the T-72, although they are good tanks, but why not the T-90?

    because the t-90a is sent there where a conflict is possible with modern obt probable enemy

    in principle, everything was done wisely, the t-72 with contact-1 is perfect for covering infantry in the city, and the t-72ba with contact-5 is quite suitable for anti-MBT battles of a potential enemy

    Everything is cool, But only one question: Why are most military equipment in the air?
