Strategic Missile Forces News

Strategic missile forces continue to serve and defend the country, deterring a likely enemy. The troops carry out various training events, as well as upgrade their equipment and weapons. Since the beginning of October, several News about the progress of updating the Strategic Rocket Forces and training events.

On the night of October 1, the regiment of the Yoshkar-Ola unit of the Strategic Missile Forces, armed with Topol mobile complexes, was ordered to advance to the specified area. The regiment and other units of the compound that did not participate in the current inspection were alarmed. The rocketeers were ordered to enter the positional area of ​​the compound and prepare for the implementation of the following orders. About 3 thousand military personnel and up to 200 units of various types of equipment were involved in these exercises, including Topol mobile ground-based missile systems and a number of auxiliary machines.

The purpose of the exercise was to work out the coordinated actions of various units of the regiment, as well as to test the skills of military personnel when working in various conditions. So, the march to the positional area was carried out in the dark, which made the work of the military certain difficulties.

October 13 launched new exercises, in which the missile regiment of the Tagil formation of the Strategic Missile Forces was involved. The regiment, armed with the Yars complexes, with its full complement entered field positions and began to fulfill the assigned combat training tasks. More than 2 thousand soldiers and officers took part in these exercises. In addition, more than 200 units of various vehicles were involved.

The press service of the strategic missile forces noted that during the Tagil connection exercises, special attention will be paid to the development of countering terrorists. As before, the purpose of the exercises was to work out the interaction of various departments and work in various conditions, including complex ones.

Also, representatives of the Strategic Missile Forces recalled that the Tagil connection currently operates mobile ground rocket complexes of the Topol family. At the same time, the re-equipment of the compound is being conducted, during which the missilemen master the latest Yars complexes. A few days ago, some details of the transfer of rocket forces to new equipment were announced.

October 9 hosted the Unified Day of Military Acceptance, during which the leadership of the Ministry of Defense and the command of the armed forces summed up the deliveries of weapons and equipment in the past third quarter. According to published data, in previous months, rocket troops received a certain amount of new weapons and equipment.

On the Unified Day of Military Acceptance, Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov said that in the third quarter of this year, eight intercontinental ballistic missiles from the Yars complex received the Strategic Missile Forces. In addition, there is a mass production and delivery of other components of this complex. Together with the RVSN missiles, 12 mobile launchers, 22 combat duty support vehicles, as well as 3 engineering support and camouflage machines.

According to Yu. Borisov, deliveries of the third quarter allowed to ensure the implementation of 36,4% of the annual plan. Taking into account the latest deliveries made in the last quarter, the share of new weapons and equipment in the missile forces reached 48%. Thus, the number of new systems is constantly increasing. By the end of the decade, it is planned to completely upgrade the weapons and equipment of the Strategic Missile Forces.

Apparently, by the end of the year, rocket troops will again receive a certain amount of new weapons and equipment, which will further increase the share of new systems and bring the Strategic Missile Forces closer to the successful implementation of the tasks.

To ensure the required combat effectiveness of troops, not only new equipment is required, but also appropriate training of personnel. October 20 in the Moscow region Vlasikha started the training camps of the heads of the Strategic Missile Forces bodies for work with personnel. During this event, it is planned to take stock of the activities of personnel agencies, as well as assess their success in implementing the instructions of the military command and the minister of defense. It is also planned to discuss some other issues directly related to work with personnel and other aspects of service in the Strategic Missile Forces.

Strategic Missile Forces are one of the main instruments ensuring the strategic security of the country. In order to preserve and improve combat capability, these troops need new equipment, specialists with good training, etc. All these tasks are solved by supplying new products of various types, conducting exercises, working with personnel and other methods. As a result, the Strategic Missile Forces constantly increase the share of new equipment, and personnel receive the opportunity to master it and test it during the exercise. In the near future, the exercises and supplies will continue, which allows us to look to the future with optimism.

    Of course, all this is good. It was high time to modernize and replace all the weapons that honestly served more than one warranty period. And I want to believe (after all, the Strategic Missile Forces gave 25 years of life soldier ) that the new BZHRK will appear on time, and the Yarsy will finally bring it to mind with "files" (experts know repeat ). But I would like to settle one question completely: what is our army? "People's" or "hired"? Like "serve your conscience, live as they say"? IMHO: there is something in the current state structure from CHIMERA (according to Ozhegov: an unrealizable, unrealizable and strange dream).

      This question concerns the entire state, and not just the Army. Until we have a single point and goal for all, few will serve for conscience. There are such people now, but when they come to serve and start complaining about some of today's difficulties, old-timers need to forcibly tell how it was in the 90s.
      Now we don’t feel like one people, not at all the most important thing is personal interest, everyone will first think and do everything for himself, but not for others ...

      and the people's army can not be contracted? here are the officers, who are they? the most that there are contract soldiers and have always been in the USSR and in Russia. why can not they be ordinary soldiers and sergeants? I believe the call is necessary, but the units of constant readiness and high-tech military (air force, strategic missile forces, navy, air defense, special forces) should be completely voluntary with a permanent staff. a soldier who plans to study military affairs for the next 10-15 years, which is much preferable to an conscript waiting for a demobilization :) here you say 25 years in the Strategic Rocket Forces. would it be bad for you to serve with people with 10-15 (average) summer service experience?

        In the Strategic Missile Forces, not only conscripts, but also contract soldiers are minimal, and this balance is maintained and maintained. There is no need for any demagogy about the "people's" and "mercenary" army.

    The army is taught and trained better than in the USSR. Such volumes of drills, alarms and long-distance travel inspire respect. And I hope this is not the same as it was in my time: today at 5 in the morning everyone will be in a position with anxious suitcases, there will be an "unexpected" alarm. And then a fat-faced colonel walks around and checks what is in the suitcase.

    I'm glad for Tagilskaya. Finally we started to "go out into the fields" for real. I would only like to know 12 and 21 sites will be restored?
