General Polguev on the differences between Russian and NATO Special Forces

The main differences between the special forces of the Russian Federation and NATO are in the goals that are set before the military and the ways to achieve them, leads Look words of the chief of intelligence of the Airborne Forces Oleg Polguyev.


General Polguev on the differences between Russian and NATO Special Forces


“The training of special forces personnel in Russia is more stringent than in NATO countries, although the latter have a technological advantage in weapons and special tools. Russian special forces are well trained and can use almost any foreign weapon. It is important that ours can fight alone, while foreign commandos rely more on the team, ”added the major general.

According to him, “in the hand-to-hand combat, the Russian commando is the best military man in the world.”

“In training, our fighters spend more time than any other special forces in the world. In addition, our special forces are learning not only methods of perfect killing, but also non-lethal martial arts: boxing, judo and other techniques, ”said Polguev.

At the same time, he acknowledged that "foreign special forces are better oriented, they are trained in special military intelligence techniques."

“Priority is given to knowledge that allows the use of observational robots and new tracking systems, not to mention the ability to move on the most different vehicles, up to enemy helicopters,” said the general.

      This is also what the Germans hoped for machine guns during World War II. And in melee, they broke them. By the end of the war, the Germans even awarded submariners melee orders

        There was nothing worse for the Fritz than a marching attacker in a peakless cap and with the cry of “Half-A-half!” In Stalingrad, the Germans were terrified of panicky melee with ours, because the Russian "barbarians" went on the attack with honed sapper blades! For the "civilized" Europeans, it was so scary that some Wehrmacht soldiers preferred a crossbow or tribunal for not fulfilling an order than falling under a sapper shoulder blade!

        So mattress covers can use navigators and other gadgets as much as you like, in a real war this is unlikely to help them!

        P.S. By the way, they and navigators manage to get lost in three pines! They have forgotten how to use regular maps, clocks and compasses!

          I do not agree with the statement. A couple of years ago they detained, it seems, a mattress spy in Moscow, so in addition to a wig and a glued beard, he also had a compass. Apparently you have not forgotten how to use it. This is not a joke, but a real fact from the central media

        Not from a good life in melee they were broken. A machine gun is more effective than a fist, the losses clearly indicate this. It would be better for us to hope for machine guns, heroism is best avoided if possible, it leads to death, and the life of our soldier is dear.

            You must conquer and survive, and not perish by the death of a hero.

          In a war, the heroism of a soldier is almost always a payment for sloppiness and cowardice of a higher command. That is why during the years of the Great Patriotic War there was mass heroism among Soviet soldiers. If the commander is competent, and the intelligence is reliable, then personal heroism and courage are needed only in emergency cases that anyone can encounter not only in the war, but also in the gateway, on the road, in the forest ...

            "That is why during the Great Patriotic War there was mass heroism among Soviet soldiers."

            Based on your logic, all Soviet marshals without exception were "stupid cowards", not capable of command, so what ?! And the battle for Moscow, Stalingrad, the Kursk Bulge, we won only due to the persistence of Soviet soldiers ?! Do you even understand what nonsense are you talking about ?! Generalisimus Suvorov Alexander Vasilievich, according to your logic, the most incapable commander, since his miraculous heroes showed miracles of courage and courage on the battlefield, where there were ALWAYS less of them than the enemy ?!

            I’m only interested in one thing, but you yourself were in the army ?! And if there were any troops, feel free to ask ?!

              The junior command staff played an enormous role in the war. It was the soldier who received the commands from him. And with that, it was really bad for us. Grandfather said that the heads of collective farms and party desks of middle-aged women really commanded companies. Understand that we have almost the entire staff died or was captured by November 1941! 3 prisoners! They put anyone anyhow. The younger team was stamped for half a year, like in our school. Half a year, and you're a junior. (Junior lieutenant). It's not cowardice, and not in competence. Such fathers commanders did not bother to study the map of the area, or even take the available intelligence data. One conversation was “For the party, for Stalin URYA!” But the Germans were perfectly prepared, and they had enough machine guns ... Despite all the controversy of Viktor Astafyev, his personal experience is not in doubt. He accepted the rank of Private Demobil. He left as a volunteer in the 000nd and was awarded the Order of the Red Star and three medals. He also fought in a howitzer regiment and a signalman on the battlefield! He was wounded not once and heavier lo. So his words are: “We shot a million of our people ourselves in the war at the front with three tribunals and even single-handedly convicted! Why do we need Hitler?” The topic of a gigantic conversation-life is not enough, but many millions of our soldiers fathers commanders did not put on their blue eyes Thinking! Women still give birth, and the war will write off everything ...

                For zennon. Well, where do you get these from ?! They read liberal hell about the millions of losses from those shot by detachments and let's spread this heresy further!

                Firstly: the word demobilization is written through "E", not "AND"!
                Second: “In the war at the front, we ourselves have shot and killed a million of our people with three tribunal tribunals and even single-handedly! Why do we need Hitler?” You yourself understood what you wrote ?! Losses of the Red Army (Soviet Army) amounted to 8,67 million people, it is killed, dead from wounds, missing! You want to say that every eighth soldier was shot by his own ?! Do not carry nonsense, and before making such statements here, read the materials first! My grandfather also fought, the commander of the 122 mm howitzer battery, and so he told me something completely different. Yes, for cowardice and alarmism shot on the spot, it's true! But not in millions, do not lie!

                P.S. The Germans, by the way, were also shot for cowardice and alarmism!

              For Varyag-1973. Namely Alexander Vasilievich Suvorov said: “Not by number, but by skill” and always acted / fought / based on this promise. Therefore, the losses in the troops of Alexander Vasilievich were minimal, so the troops under his command always won. the heroes of Alexander Vasilievich showed the highest courage and courage, but equally showed the highest skill and skill in battle. "It is hard to learn, easy in battle" - Alexander Vasilievich Suvorov. Not all of course, marshals and generals during the Second World War were "stupid cowards", but these were the same. By the way, German infantrymen, both during the years of World War I (assault units) and during World War II in hand-to-hand combat, used the same

              Who is talking about marshals? It was about the immediate superiors. Komvzvoda, comrades ... And, by the way, they do not visit the army - they serve in the army. And you, dear, either did not serve, or ran into a sleek position, and you got lost in a civilian way. And now you throw reproaches. The person who served the normal term knows who the commander is. And mythical generals are not interesting to him.

            What is commonly called heroism is a normal military duty for a Russian soldier. Of course, I would like the whole "higher command" not to shy away from the soldier's share)). But here in Russia, and so the percentage of real commanders is increased in comparison with the "partners". I don’t even know how to help them (foreign special forces) in an unequal technological struggle with ours)).

            But no. Ours, for the most part, stood to the end - to hand-to-hand combat, hence the heroism in hand-to-hand combat. All the rest, up to the Germans, did not like the close battle very much.

          I agree with you that the life of a soldier is expensive, much less well trained. but I think that special forces are not motorized rifles and often they have to fight in conditions when the use of a machine gun is difficult.

          Dear TheMi30, the tasks facing the special forces units and units of the defense ministries of any state are precisely to avoid excessive “volume”, because often this (“volume”) nullifies all the results achieved.

        This is because at the end of the war the Germans began to massively remove sailors from ships and throw them into the last battle. Many German sailors participated in the defense of Berlin. In short, as we have in Sevastopol, just the opposite.
        And the Wehrmacht really tried not to take hand-to-hand fights. And, if you take offhand several memoirs of German generals, everyone says that in melee we had no equal.

Stalin (asked for the finals, what didn’t belong to them, but with the “decree” Lenin couldn’t do this diplomatically), Just because the Finns, they didn’t hear us, but Hitler promised that he won’t leave them .. ??

        I read feedback about the latest competitions in Kazakhstan. The Americans called our scout trail the death trail. Only special forces of the former social camp could pass it. But the prize for the use of technical equipment remained with the Americans. That physical training is needed is understandable. but it’s also important to be able to use the technical means of their own and the enemy, drive any car, work on any radio, use the subversive means of the enemy.

What kind of "intelligence" is it if Hammer jeeps are thrown onto an uncharted beach on the ground and the whole crew of powerful fighters had to push this miracle of technology on shaky sand? That’s garbage, compliment exchange, batteries in the optics and tablet will die and all, reconnaissance khan, until the diesel generator charges it all ... Their pilots bombed the desert for a year, with the “most advanced radars” they flew to bomb and put all the bombs on the dunes ... Ours took off, visually made landmarks along the highway and they know the whole area without a map ...

      A typical special forces soldier, regardless of country, is no different from the millions of people who train martial arts. The only difference is that soldiers are taught to kill. So the difference is in the psyche. On the other hand, the best Special Forces in Russia is the Special Forces of Ramzan. also in the field of loyalty and obedience. Although the Special Forces Kim Jong-un are more loyal.

        Special forces training is not only hand-to-hand combat. A universal soldier is not the best in everything, but the best in aggregate. If they become the best in hand-to-hand combat, then part of the time is taken away from other training disciplines and there will be gaps.
        I know for sure that thirty years ago it was much longer to fly to the ground by parachute of our airborne forces than by parachutes of our probable opponents. What this will lead to is understandable. I don’t want the truth to be hidden behind the cries of “cheers”, it’s better to remain silent and “plow”, “plow” .....

          however, the fact remains that our specialty is better prepared than the same Chinese.
          and not only in hand-to-hand combat, there is already the fact that we already have our own tradition in preparing special forces. since we have been special forces for a long time. and the Chinese the real special forces appeared relatively recently, before that it could be said that there was an infantry with increased fire training, no more. and in the late 80s they began to prepare real special forces, but without experience, without traditions of training and other special forces, it turned out to be somewhat different from that of other large countries. they are working well in this direction now, but they are still far from the level of Russia and the USA.

      I agree with you, but for an example I’ll give you one of the operations of the elite US special forces:
      [quote] American special forces "Delta force" - "Delta Force" - the most expensive type of troops in the US Army, at the same time is the most unsuccessful. These troops proved themselves to be especially vivid in 1980, when they failed miserably in the operation to free the fifty American embassy employees in Tehran who were held hostage by terrorists. Special forces not only managed to lose several units of military equipment, including three out of sixteen helicopters, before the start of the military operation, on the way to Tehran, but also to disrupt the very process of releasing the hostages.

        I read most of the comments, did not serve in the special forces. He was the commander of the reconnaissance and landing company in 781ORB 108 MSD 40 Army in 1981-82gg. Citizens commenting on the comments realized that most of you did not fight. You write about death and heroism so easily that you begin to doubt the normality of people. I dare to assure you that everyone and everything that you saw in feature films about the war want to live is basically a lie. More than once was present at the death of soldiers and officers, did not hear from them words about the party and the homeland. The late sergeant Mitrikov called his mother until he died, he was carried to a helicopter, and he was not informed. He was a good and brave scout. Words: “For the Homeland”, “For the Party” I have never heard. During the command of the company, 11 soldiers and officers buried. They considered it at the annual meeting of our company (we meet annually, for 15 years already), every third was wounded, every seventh twice. Some became disabled. And when you read boastful comments, it takes anger at the cheers-couch patriots. I won’t write a mat.

      I think there is no mistake .. because any martial art involves a longer contact than just killing .. for this you need only one movement ... but endurance in a viscous contact if this movement did not work out is just not superfluous ... and in principle .. who practiced martial arts he on the street as a fisherman sees a fisherman in the style of movement, in the shape of his arms, biceps, weight lifter is different from a boxer and a boxer from a wrestler .. laughing Accordingly, you already have time to comprehend before whom you need to have time to apologize if you offended ...

      I already at the institute of the Ministry of Internal Affairs served in the first tests on the physo for hand-to-hand grabs ... it seems everything is perfect, but as the department head said, it’s inappropriately to kill the enemy .. our task is to immobilize and detain him ... laughing but I didn’t immediately catch this difference .. laughing

    It is impossible today without modern technology - the use of drones and thermal imagers alone can increase the effectiveness of the use of special forces in counter-terrorism and police actions at times. Is it bad?

    It is all about fortitude, sometimes a morel fighter shows miracles of courage and heroism (WWII, Afghanistan, Chechnya). Where did the NATO people come from if they were fighting for money, if his dad left an inheritance in half a lemon of greenery and a family shop! Spirituality is the weakness of those fighters, why the Vietnamese shredded them at one time, now the Afghans are wetting .... I think so!

    no robot or gadget can replace a person!
    as our head of the Security Council (FSB colonel in the past) said about video surveillance - people don't catch cameras, but people! Let me rephrase it - not gadgets do the job, but people!
    What can a gadget without a person? Nothing! And what can a person (naturally, trained and prepared) without a gadget? Yes, much, almost the same !!!

        the experience is the largest, almost continuous - now, for example, they graze in the Iraqi desert.

        Ours are considered the best by "quiet" intelligence. operations behind enemy lines, without firing

            there are basics - these are ways of conducting intelligence. So among these methods there are such as: "observation", "raid", "ambush." and how will you in an ambush destroy an enemy without firing? or how are you going to watch and not watch at the same time? strange you had a lieutenant

            With all due respect to the operation, I consider it still a contractual operation, it is not important to bribe the threat or use other methods of influence, there wasn’t any major blood. I didn’t have to make fire contact, this option is extremely undesirable. And the Caucasus was just bought.

    The assessment is subjective and it is unambiguous to say that those are good and those would not be very unfair. Only the fulfillment of the assigned task could evaluate the training of the special forces more or less realistically. Personally, I am in my heart for the Russian special forces.

    the article is very muddy, there is no specifics .. western special forces - is it English SAS or American delta and seals or Israeli special services? here, one should rather judge not by the opinion of one person, even though a general, but by the statistics of the success and complexity of the tasks themselves. well, and to discuss about someone who more abruptly resembles the arguments of first-graders in the likeness: (terminator versus predator) well, or what are the first-graders arguing about there now ..

      dear, do not confuse military special forces, including military intelligence and groups of special saboteurs (they have their own tasks and goals) and foreign intelligence special services, these are different offices, but sometimes they touch, and in general the commandos are very "jealous" of their units and exploits, and as for the specifics in the article, you shouldn’t reckon on it at all, no one will ever tell you about these or those special forces training systems and systems, the topic is very limited for obvious reasons, this is only in the cinema of the fight and the meat grinder of the special forces, in fact, everything simpler and more prosaic, if it came to a real confrontation and battle, then you failed the operation, you are hooked and you’ll be seized anyway, it’s a matter of time, or they will kill you corny ...

    but in fact, special forces are different, there are military special forces of the ground forces, and there is a marine, there are special forces of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the FSB, there are special forces of the Federal Penitentiary Service, etc., each has its own specialization depending on the tasks and goals of use, respectively, the special training system is somewhat it’s different, but the basic, so to speak, general part of the training system has not been canceled, including high physical fitness, it is usually identical, as for the American special forces, it is also specialized in the areas of goals and objectives, for example, there are green berets, sea seals, etc., the general correctly noticed that our guys are more focused on “natural techniques and methods” of conducting operations, with minimal special equipment, the Yankees are more focused on the maximum use of special technical equipment, including surveillance systems and communication using advanced modern technical means, which is generally not bad either, and it’s useful to know

    ..... because the Russian "barbarians" went on the attack with honed sapper blades! For the "civilized" Europeans, it was so scary ......

    Erich Maria Remarque has a novel, “On the Western Front, Without Change.” This is a novel about the events of the 1st World War, through the eyes of a German soldier. So, even Remarque - (sorry) the “lousy intelligentsia" was aware of the fact that the noble, civilized craps of Hans often crossed engineer blades with the paddles of the "paddles" during a hand-to-hand duel. I vividly remember the episode when the fired soldier Kat taught the unfired soldiers the advantages of a shovel over a bayonet.
    In general, through the whole novel one of the threads goes - we are not so different. Read for general development, and after that, I think, you will cease to distinguish two-legged / two-handed creatures by the ability to wield a shovel better than the enemy. Hatred is evil

    In the summer of 99g, our guys from the 14th brigade drove and guests to the American rangers. Our selection there was very tough. When ours arrived at their base, the Americans gritted their teeth contemptuously: oh, Russian special forces. But after the very first competition, to put it mildly, they were a little shocked. Our guys beat them in almost all competitions, the only thing they lost was in landing from an airplane. But this is easily attributed to an unfamiliar parachute system, the jumping technique is completely different from ours. Otherwise, we were better than Americans. They were very angry, but could not do anything. But this does not mean that everything was easy for ours. No. It was very, very hard, it was a job that had to be done better than your opponent. And the Americans began to respect and even become afraid that what else could these Russians throw out. When, sparring in hand-to-hand combat, against an American as healthy as a bull, he came out less pumped up, and a smaller Russian, and laid the American on his shoulder blades faster than he managed to blink. Well, he was not warned that the champion of the KDVO in army hand-to-hand combat was coming out against him. And when our guys left there, the Americans respectfully shook hands, and on their faces there was no shadow from those statements. Two weeks was enough for them to respect us. I think that after that they would not want to meet our special forces on the battlefield. There would be more such meetings and you look at the statements of their generals, they would have been much more peaceful, and did not call for the Russians to be killed, because Russians can also kill not worse, or even better than they. But this is alien to us, and they are in the order of things. Maybe these paratroopers will get to know the Russians better, and then they will definitely not have enough diapers.

    I watched the comparative analytics of special forces of different countries (leading). The guys changed the passage of the "bands", weapons ... Observers put our highest score! In combat exercises, even no one was close. The Chinese were great, but they had different “tasks” and somehow they “passed by”. Amer’s training is impressive, of course, but it seems to me that this is purely “moral pressure”. At our "races" they fell ... good

    Based on your logic, all Soviet marshals without exception were "stupid cowards", not capable of command, so what ?!

    The junior command staff played an enormous role in the war. It was the soldier who received the commands from him. And with that, it was really bad for us. Grandfather said that the heads of collective farms and party desks of middle-aged women really commanded companies. Understand that we have almost the entire staff died or was captured by November 1941! 3 prisoners! They put anyone anyhow. The younger team was stamped for half a year, like in our school. Half a year, and you're a junior. (Junior lieutenant). It's not cowardice, and not in competence. Such fathers commanders did not bother to study the map of the area, or even take the available intelligence data. One conversation was “For the party, for Stalin URYA!” But the Germans were perfectly prepared, and they had enough machine guns ... Despite all the controversy of Viktor Astafyev, his personal experience is not in doubt. He accepted the rank of Private Demobil. He left as a volunteer in the 000nd and was awarded the Order of the Red Star and three medals. He also fought in a howitzer regiment and a signalman on the battlefield! He was wounded not once and heavier lo. So his words are: “We shot a million of our people ourselves in the war at the front with three tribunals and even single-handedly convicted! Why do we need Hitler?” The topic of a gigantic conversation-life is not enough, but many millions of our soldiers fathers commanders did not put on their blue eyes Thinking! Women still give birth, and the war will write off everything ...

    Unfortunately, I have to agree with you, despite the minuses. The quality of training of company officers left much to be desired in comparison with the Wehrmacht. (Wehrmacht officers training system http: //russoedvizhenie.rf/index.php/history/52-articles/9829-2012-07-02-11-43-07

    It is interesting to read comments and conclusions about our special forces and their actions in wars! Something from the category of "flat-roll, round-carry"! Gentlemen, “analysts” do not mix “God's gift” with scrambled eggs, because special units, unlike infantry and other troops, have completely different tasks and it’s not their job to “go about machine guns”. Although our soldier will give 100 points to the so-called "reasoning" and the ability to solve many problems "Western partners," such a mentality "in the blood" of our people has historically developed. As for the article, I read it with interest, but I will refrain from speaking about our "specialists" since did not serve in this system, although he gave 25 years of his native Army! It is especially pleasing that much attention is now being paid to these units! Glory to the Russian Army and the Navy!

    yeah, only here "To engage in hand-to-hand combat, a special forces soldier must lose on the battlefield: an automatic machine, a gun, a knife, a waist belt, a shoulder blade, body armor, and a helmet.
    Find a flat area on which not a single stone or stick is lying. Find on it the same idiot.

    According to Stalin, the enemy attacked treacherously, according to historical data, the Germans and their allies were in excess. Also, according to Academician Fursov Andrei Ilyich, the whole industry of Europe and the US financial and material assistance were opposed against the Soviet Union. In this aggravating state, the Stalinists (Bolsheviks), having broken the fifth column, turned the tide of the war from an unprofitable position. In view of the foregoing, without heroism the soldiers of the red army in any case could not have done.

    Nah, our special forces are better and sharpened for the task in any conditions. Well, the means of suppressing electronic equipment will be used, and that the Americans, in what place will they insert all their high-tech gadgets? And if in a confined space, where only your body is placed sideways? Reason, physo, reaction, skills are all and nothing but this. And work.

    The doctor told how they intersected, he was a graduate of the Soviet still military medical academy. In one unpleasant hot place, it was neighing - their specials were called blacks, the Americans ran in the heat, and hooves to the side, they cramped, they gave them a helicopter, they cried on the air, they say, take it away. Ours sat peacefully where necessary as needed, carried out what was required and at the same time considered these "climatic" losses. Only then they were very surprised that like Negroes, by their nature, should be more resistant to such a climate.

    The one who served will not let you lie. In words, everything is always fine in the army, but in reality it turns out quite awkwardly.
    I will give examples from history. The Red Army was the strongest, and in 1941 fled to Moscow.
    A more recent example is Chernobyl. In the USSR, civil defense and chemical forces were almost exemplary. Chernobyl happened - there were not even respirators and dosimeters.
    Therefore, I am inclined to think that we should not engage in encouraging ourselves. There will be a war, scuffle will not be needed at all, all this is superfluous. Except for the skill, there are rats and vipers.
    If the Americans switched to technology, then they care about people. Therefore, they have a huge advantage. All these special forces are a fairy tale like Rambo. Some say, others hang ears. The army should be modern, and not run in the 21st century with knives and binoculars through the bushes.
