Special engineer-sapper and pontoon-bridge brigades are planned to be formed by 2020 g in each combined arms army, reports TASS a message from the head of the engineering troops of the RF Armed Forces, Yuri Stavitsky


An engineering brigade will be formed in each general army.


“We hope to form several more regiments before 2020, in the composition of each combined arms army and in units of central subordination. In the brigades, we have completely new units, the tasks of which correspond to the present time, ”Stavitsky told reporters.

According to Stavitsky, the assault battalions will be part of the new brigades, which “will make passes in minefields, destructions and blockages and ensure unimpeded advance of motorized riflemen and other forces across the enemy’s territory”.

The first such battalion has already been created in the city of Murom, Vladimir region. “The battalion of assault and fission of engineering troops became part of the newly formed engineering-sapper brigade of the reserve of the commander-in-chief. The importance of these compounds is quite high. This is a reserve of the Chief of General Staff, these units are specific, ”he said.

“The experience of the Chechen campaign showed that the absence of such units has a negative impact on the outcome of the battle. People in these brigades are protected appropriately, ready to act correctly when passing blockages, minefields, fortified areas and other obstacles. They also have special tools. ”

      This is a very interesting practice, when fighters who are professionally able to make passages, direct crossings, and carry out mine clearance will strengthen infantry units. In fact, we are moving to complex units, which did not work out when creating the brigade device of troops

      Notice the assault and engineering brigades ... As before the operation to capture Koenigsberg and further to Berlin! Sharpening the army on the offensive ... Again in the summer there was a statement on the restoration of tank armies.

        Thanks to them for my homeland. For a beautiful, (not primordially) but now a Russian city!

        The Germans voted with two hands to separate Königsberg from Nazi Germany.

    New is well forgotten old. In World War II there were the so-called SHISBR Assault Engineering Sapper Brigades, which were used extremely efficiently. So let the undertaking not drown in bureaucracy and window dress .... hi

      If they revive at a qualitatively new level ..... good It will be strong!
      The first such battalion has already been created in Murom, Vladimir Region. “The battalion of assault and demolition of the engineering troops became part of the newly formed engineer-sapper brigade of the reserve of the Supreme Commander. The importance of these compounds is quite high. This is the reserve of the chief of the General Staff, these units are specific ”,
      Break in as the main combat unit and forward to the brigades!

    There is no limit to perfection, but a lot is determined by technical capabilities and financing! If we commission new units, this is of course commendable. The main thing is that military victories are always present!

    This is how it should be in every army there should be either an engineering brigade or at least a battalion at least. And then it turned out that any of any combat unit, any fighter - "Both a reaper and a priest and a gamer!" And + to everything also a fighter! Yes, after establishing a crossing or clearing a fighter is already exhausted and not some kind of fighter, damn it, by the time you have to join the battle! So such units as an engineer are simply necessary to be in every army. In general, it is very GOOD good yes news!

    Good news for our soldiers. The chances of surviving in the coming military battles increase. So that these good intentions do not remain only on paper (as it often happens in our life). Well, and my wish: in no case to make "a protective suit that has no analogues in the world from nanoprotective elements." Otherwise the gentlemen from Skolkovo "will quickly do their job right." wassat

    "the new brigades will include assault battalions" ////

    Armies ... Engineering brigades, battalions ....
    Generals still think in the scale of the USSR army smile .

    Only recently was the Donbass. Clear that the basic unit
    modern offensives has become a combined battalion group.
    An engineering company should be included in it. To start with this.
    And work out the tactics of its interaction with infantry, tanks, artillery
    How to cover this company, how to help it.

    The first ShISBr appeared in the Red Army in 1943. Then came the motorized brigades. There were 23 of them in total. The Soviet "armored infantry" showed excellent results. But after the war, all brigades were disbanded. Now, apparently, they have recalled the experience of the past world and are re-creating it. I wonder in what composition and state. And how will the interaction with the infantry, art, tanks be spelled out ... This is extremely important!

    I'll go pump up a hundred grams.

    Everything will depend on the organizational and staff structure of these brigades, on the weapons and equipment in the brigades and (most importantly) on the manning: a recruitment scheme of 90% contract soldiers + 10% conscripts will be adopted (similar to the recruitment scheme for some parts of the Airborne Forces) - honor and praise, but (on the basis of economic "considerations") 90% will be conscripts, the rest of the contract soldiers - a worthless price for this undertaking. Assault units are special forces that operate openly, one-on-one with the enemy. It is no coincidence that during the War, the regiments and brigades of the Airborne Forces in 1943, before being sent to the active army, were reorganized into assault brigades.

    And the Germans have priority in organizing and using assault groups ...

    "They were first created and used by the German command at the suggestion of General Erich Ludendorff in World War I. They included trained infantrymen armed with automatic weapons, grenades and explosives. Under the cover of artillery, assault groups approached the enemy's trenches, threw grenades at him and entered the near battle, breaking through the enemy's defenses.

    From the end of 1915, "assault platoons" ("grenadier platoons"), to which sapper instructors were attached, appeared in all infantry and grenadier regiments of the Russian army. The platoon consisted of one officer, four non-commissioned officers, 48 ​​lower ranks. The grenadiers were armed and equipped with "Adrian helmets", carbines (officers with revolvers), daggers-beboots, 7-8 grenades, which were worn in special canvas covers worn crosswise over the shoulder, with steel shields (at least one for two grenadiers). Each platoon was to have two bombers. "(From Wikipedia)

    The idea of ​​deploying an engineer-sapper brigade in each army arose and was launched under Serdyukov. As part of the study of improving the organizational structure of the troops. It’s just that it has just reached practical implementation.
    Less cheap emotions.

    But was it not so in the Soviet army? Well, if you do not take specific engineering units and brigades reporting directly to the KGB.
