There is no victory without rear

June 2005
From the archive of the press photographer

After a quick diesel refueling column tanks in dust clubs, the “quarry” went to the deployment site and immediately entered the battle with the “enemy”.

This is just one of many episodes of the 2005 Strategic Deployment exercise, which took place in the Novosibirsk region at the Shilovo training ground of the Siberian Military District. The main purpose of the exercises, which was headed by the Head of the Logistics of the RF Armed Forces - Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, Army General V. Isakov, was working out the main issues of logistic support for troops during the hostilities. In addition, questions were worked out on the interaction of the rear structures and the largest in Russia JSC AK Transnefteprodukt to provide fuel for units and divisions of the armed forces.

At headquarters and in the field, the tasks of connecting to the main pipeline, obtaining fuel from rail and road vehicles, refueling military equipment, repelling the actions of sabotage groups of a conditional enemy, fighting fires, restoring destroyed buildings, protecting rear facilities from raids aviation.

Large-scale exercises were practical and educational-methodical in nature. Special rear forces, structural subdivisions of Transnefteprodukt OJSC, logistics services and subdivisions of the Siberian Military District, railway troops, as well as command personnel of the rear of the Armed Forces, combat arms and military districts were brought to them.

    2005 year. Did much survive after the "reforms"?
    Or solid (sorry for the expression) outsourcing? ...

    The training of the home front is the unforgettable "WING-2007" in the Far East ... And the Shilovsky training ground, I remember in the distant 1981, they drove there to the shooting range, before the 5-day training camp for pre-conscripts, there was such a practice in the Union. And so in front of the army often past him I traveled from Ordynka to Novosibirsk and back. Eh, nostalgia began to press drinks

    Dear, it’s precisely at the rear exercises, past the army units, it’s just necessary to involve civilian services, to check their readiness for such events, for example, by car or train, it is not possible to bring fuel by regular army units, as local authorities will be able to mobilize the necessary transport, people and provide interaction, also on other relevant issues

      I would look at this ... what are the possibilities at the moment to supply the units ... they returned to the army, and soon we will restore the rear, in its purest form, from the military ... (at least I really hope so). I don’t believe it outsourcing and mobilization forces of local authorities.)))

    I remembered: "Everything is Jomini, yes Jomini, but not a word about vodka" (D. Davydov).
    The rear is the possibility of material support for achieving victory in the war and success in certain operations. It is necessary to bring the conceptual apparatus in line with the achievements of scientific management.
