Airborne battalion to appear in Crimea

55
Information Agency TASS with reference to a source in the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation reports that the plans of the military department include the deployment of a battalion of the Airborne Forces on the territory of the Crimean peninsula. A source in the General Staff of the Armed Forces told reporters news agency that the end of the deployment is scheduled for 2018 year. And in 2020, the battalion can be converted into an airborne regiment.


Airborne battalion to appear in Crimea


The place of deployment of the airborne battalion is the city of Dzhankoy, which houses the army regiment aviation.

From the source of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation:
It was decided to deploy in the Crimea within two years, in 2017-2018, a separate assault assault battalion of the seventh division. After 2020, the third regiment of this compound will be created on its base.


Regarding the source’s statements, a discussion unfolded among the users of the General Staff, the main question of which is as follows: should such plans be made by the military department of the Russian Federation through the media? Opinions "for" and "against" balance each other.

Against this background, attention is drawn to a letter from the community of Russian Germans from Bavaria to the address of the head of the Republic of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov. In a letter about which the vice-premier of the government of Kazakhstan Ruslan Balbek told, Russian Germans ask Sergey Aksyonov to consider their request for the opportunity to move from Germany to the Russian Crimea and stay there on a permanent basis.

RIA News quotes Ruslan Balbek:
The letter contains a request to the head of the Republic of Crimea to assist in the resettlement of Russian Germans for permanent residence. Representatives of the working class, owners of small enterprises, electricians, mechanics, want to relocate. Russian Germans, living in Germany, do not feel safe because of the influx of refugees, who, with the connivance of the authorities, violate local laws and traditions and threaten public foundations. Representatives of the Russian community of Germany noted that in the Russian Crimea there is no persecution and persecution of citizens for political and religious reasons.

        Have you read the news? There will be a battalion, and at its base, later, a regiment will be deployed as part of the 7 DShD!
        P.S. We have a self-sufficient grouping there (with parts of reinforcement) and nothing will change from the presence of another military unit, I mean the desire to block Crimea from banderlogs!

          The air assault units and formations have slightly different tasks and organizational-staff structure, or rather had, than the airborne assault! Firstly, they were operatively subordinated directly to the commanders of the army or army corps (and not to the Center, like the Airborne Forces) with access to the state border and were intended for a massive landing in the enemy’s near rear using mainly army helicopters using the landing method, while the airborne units were intended for landing in the deeper rear from BTA aircraft. That's solely because of these characteristics that I wrote. To date, there are no such units and formations in the Russian army. hi

              Right! Thanks for the clarification! Wrong! hi
              After the massive organizational and staffing of 1998 and the reforms with the staff of Serdyukov and Shoigu, there’s no way to keep track of how the troop is changing! Up to 98, each district had such a brigade ... I came across 36 Leningrad Military District Fire Brigade, which was stationed in the village of Garbolovo, and there was also the 97th linear communications brigade, which is also now disbanded.

          Before the revolution, the Germans lived in Crimea. There were entire German settlements. I now know the descendants of the Crimean (still Catherine Germans) Good working people. Patriots of Russia. Crimea is a highly respected multi-national republic. Sevastopol residents do not divide people according to nationality. They share only by decency, honesty of a person. And they are well versed in this matter. do not like, do not respect, tear away from the city. There are examples! ..

        To begin to turn around to the regiment, and from it a brigade. Indeed, there is nothing to deploy a brigade to Dzhankoy right away.

        And the strategic position is special. Well, if our jokers invented the Arbat military district, then God himself ordered the Crimea to be a district.

        In general, in my opinion, it was stupid with the enlargement of the districts - they took the fashion from America ... Well they thought of it - to reduce from 16 to 4! Well, okay, let's say some districts fell off together with the "fraternal" republics. But what do they think now? The Central District is twice as large, from left to right, as the whole of Europe from Lisbon to Warsaw! Gigantomania never brought it to a good point - how to manage a district if it fell apart at 4500 km? I don't know, maybe the service taught me to work in small tactical units - a battalion at most. Even the regiment is clumsy, large and complex in interaction than a simple company of the Airborne Forces. And the effectiveness of the combat use of the Airborne Forces company, it happens, and the motorized rifle regiment will block - there are all kinds of situations ...

        Of course, smart heads are sitting in the General Staff, big stars from their shoulders shine far away ... But in my opinion, Crimea should naturally be a district, and our monstrous 4 districts need to be divided so that it is 12-14. Only with the headquarters of the districts not to wave too much. And then we have "parquet" give free rein - the headquarters of the district will be blown up like the entire army of Austria or the entire Baltic states combined ...

    MANDATORY!

    Airborne Task suddenly fall onto the enemy’s head, inflict the maximum possible damage and hold positions until the main forces approach (or secretly advance in the direction of the main forces if a sabotage operation was planned).

    That is, let the enemy know that the Airborne Forces are nearby, let them be afraid. And when the enemy sees the paratrooper, it will be too late to get scared ... am

      The question is not clear. In general, a regiment usually consists of battalions. It is clearly said that in the future there will be a regiment on the basis of the battalion. Accordingly, it will have at least three battalions, an artillery division and other special units of combat and rear support.

        Immediately Schweik remembered:
        “But they said that Austria still has colonies,” Schweik put in his word. - They say that somewhere in the North there is some kind of land of Emperor Franz Joseph.
        “Throw it, guys, in vain to shake your tongue,” said one of the guards. At present, it is very careless to talk about some land of the Emperor Franz Joseph.
        “Well, look at the map,” interrupted Marek interrupted. - In fact, there is the land of our all-merciful monarch, Emperor Franz Joseph. According to statistics, there is solid ice that is transported on icebreakers belonging to Prague refrigerators.
        The corporal came closer, listening to the words of Marek, who continued with the most serious look:
        - This only Austrian colony can supply ice to all of Europe and is a significant economic factor. True, its colonization is extremely slow, because the colonists are partly just not there, and partly, once they get there, they just freeze as well. Nevertheless, there is hope that by influencing the climatic conditions, in which the ministries of trade and foreign affairs are very interested, it will be possible to fully utilize the vast areas occupied by the icy mountains. The construction of several hotels is supposed to attract a lot of tourists. The only obstacle is the Eskimos, which impede the work of local institutions to the highest degree.
        “These scoundrels do not want to learn German,” Marek continued after a short pause.
        “So, Mr. Corporal, the Ministry of Education, sparing no expenses and sacrifices, and the five architects froze, built a school for them ... But the Eskimos lit fires from the wooden parts of merchant ships, jammed in ice. The ice on which the school was built melted, and everyone, together with its head and representative of the center, at its solemn consecration collapsed into the sea. It was only audible, as a representative from the center, already up to his neck in the water, shouted: "God, chastise England." Now they will probably send a punitive detachment there to bring order to these damned Eskimos. It goes without saying that fighting with them will not be so easy. Most of all our troops will be harmed by their trained polar bears.

    The battalion seems to be numerically and not much. BUT! What the Separate Pro Battalion, equipped with the appropriate equipment, is capable of - a lot! And the main thing: such a battalion is likely to become a "training" for almost all Arms of the Troops in terms of operational interaction and training of other units. Nothing new in the SA was still practiced, when officers were sent for training and combat coordination to the elites, where there was no lower rank of the lieutenant in the "reduced composition" of the battalion. Such a military unit is a catalyst for growing the "diamond crystal lattice" of the entire group of troops. By the way, the Americans are also trying to practice this at the Yavoriv training ground - they are making unsuccessful experiments on grunts.

    The Airborne Battalion is good, and the regiment is even better. And in general, the military patent of Russia has risen well, the defense is getting stronger, it pleases. But you can’t relax, the strengthening of the armed forces should continue at an accelerated pace. The advantage, so far, is not yet on our side.
