Military Review

Who do we have there in the rain and in the mud?


So, Russian Defense Minister Shoigu visited Kaliningrad with a check. I think that to say that all the military were standing on their ears, is to say nothing. But - so it should be.

But, in general, the whole Western Military District was on its ears. Regular exercises, regular checks from the Baltic to the Black Sea.

Started with command and staff exercises. And who is the first to start fussing, if command exercises, along with staffs?

That's right, our valiant connection.

We visited one of the parts of ZVO just on the day when the order came and the beginning of the command-staff exercise. And the personnel (along with the equipment, of course) were instructed to arrive at one of the integrated landfills of the ZVO in another area. But just to take and send the vehicle on the march would be too easy and uninteresting. As well as to give such an order by telegram or by telephone.

No, dear communicators, simply - this is clearly not with us.

To begin, the units involved in the exercises will have to move into the area of ​​deployment, carry out this deployment, take all necessary actions to connect to the communication and information systems, receive an extension order through closed channels, assemble, and only then start their way on teachings.

It is clear that a military man differs from a civil one in that he does not discuss orders. And from the very morning a lively action began in the unit.

Where does any process begin in the army? That's right, with the construction and formulation of the combat mission.

Then begins the process of withdrawal of equipment, loading of personnel and other movements.

[center] The company commander looks at the head machine for the actions of subordinates.

Motors are running.

The "By car" command is performed as expected, that is, by running.

Plunged. Now the signalmen will be back in part only in a week.

The column moves through the city.

[center] Place of deployment. Dirt for communication, as you can see, is enough.

The process of deploying communication complexes begins.

"Stick and rope" is the best way to ground.

The sledgehammer is an essential attribute of the 21 century army. Paradox, but without it - no way.

"Comrades of the military! Be careful when performing their duties! Do not let bungling and curvature!"

In fact, it sounded a little different, but the meaning is as follows. With petroleum jelly, you often deserve ...

To accomplish the task, it was necessary to put two complexes on alert. And with their help to receive data through closed communication channels.

This station is all called "Cosmos". But in general it is "Rain".

Installing tensioners is a bit like playing the harp. Only it is impossible to fake, there will be a lot of roar.

With the help of P-419, you can not only provide everything and everyone with communication, but also with the Internet. With decent speed.

We will continue our reports as soon as possible from the test site in the Kursk region, where the trainings themselves will be held directly.

            There was once an unexplained case in Saryshagan.
            In general, we arrived, settled in "Tulip-4", the first thing the signalmen provide communication. We deployed our station, if I’m not mistaken 412, on the base of the “Ural”, well, let's establish ... There is no connection! They are already collecting a consultation, what kind of garbage? Everyone is checking, running around the station, by all indications everything should work! But the quality of the connection is no, one might say, it simply does not exist.
            And suddenly, after dancing with a tambourine, a good connection was established. Just excellent! No one can understand what they did to make it work. Well, there’s no time to understand yet.
            We are working.
            It must be clarified that there is a hatch on board the cabin. In this hatch, all sorts of outputs-inputs and 2 lamb for connecting a field vole for remote TA-57.
            And after a couple of days, when everyone had calmed down, the connection was excellent, one officer noticed that the wire had fallen off from one lamb. It was evident when they were running around, they hooked and torn off their hooves. It’s a mess! He connects the wire, screws up all proletarian hatred and the connection disappears. But he doesn’t know. He spun and went with a sense of accomplishment belly to warm the belly in the clearing.
            You are boiling again! There is no connection! The investigation begins, who did what. Find out about the fallen off wire. Disconnect - there is a connection. Connect - no connection.
            As a result, they worked like that. What does the remote TA-57 also work.
            Here's a riddle.

              412th is a tropospheric station! It's hard to say, but I had a similar case only on 423-1, though due to the fact that someone, somewhere in 100 meters from the station, drove a little along the connecting line, ATGM 20x2, break not tore, but crumpled and from the formed "shorty" that came to the building the protection was triggered, cutting off the power of the station! Until I found that it was all about the cable, I spent a lot of time and nerves! And if you take into account that the command constantly has you, the task is being disrupted, then it really is not eroticism, but real pornography! the valiant infantry travels everywhere, even where it is impossible to pass in principle! laughing

              By the way, in one of the photos, the fighter pulls the cable, it’s not right, he didn’t teach it! It can just damage the coupling, but communication is really the science of contacts!

              The channel switching unit is in no way tied up with electronic circuits with a transceiver.
              Most likely they tried to get in touch on the same frequency numbers in one
              range (must-one station in the first, her correspondent in the second)

          There were times both on the R-405 and on the R-409 I had a chance to serve as the station master. Deploying the R-405 is not a telescope mast on the 409th. Everything is only on muscular strength, and if the "crooked looking" is also caught behind the mast, then you can easily "lower" the mast to the ground or break wooden knees: hi

          And I also served on the P-410-10 (Athlete) (tropospheric). Two burdocks will be hung up 10 meters in diameter, and after 3 days of training, the yellow forest was facing the burdocks .. the old station was already in the late 80s but reliable.
          And when the "Cosmonauts" came to the training ground to us near Poltava for trainings, our command staff together hid away to "save eggs"

              Still in service? I remember back then they were going to switch to R-417. Cadets from the Donetsk VVUS have already completed training on the R-417.
              I wonder how many channels of digital compression adds? As far as I remember, the old woman R-410 gave like 100 channels .. It worked perfectly! In the exercises, we built a connection between them between the rates from Berlin to Moscow.
              And when the two Germany united, then we were taken to the Baltic States near Riga. Labuses looked at our obscured antenna machines (Zil 131 with "SOSNA-M") and thought that we had delivered rocket launchers to them. Demonstrations were organized around part of week 3. The battalion commander then specially arranged an excursion for Labus around the town - he showed that there were no missiles .. :)

Total 5 cars! smile

                E1 (2048 kib / s) - it works a decent length! And in Donetsk, political officers were trained for the communications troops and engineers - the Donetsk Higher Military-Political School of Engineering and Communications Troops named after Army General A. A. Epishev. Perhaps you had in mind the Poltava School of Communications!
                I am also familiar with 417 stations, but not many of them were dispersed in troops, in contrast to 412, 423, there were already various digital modifications!

          In total, the qualities of P419, in my opinion, did not have any special advantages for the P409 crew. The standard for special training, Problem No. 1, is the same.
          The main advantage is new. As a rule, P409 rigging was by the time
          appearances of P419-were basically all gouged, as a result of intensive training

But this is the next generation - compaction equipment, no longer "Topaz", but "Azur", the possibility of data transmission has appeared, the automation of all tuning and control processes has increased, etc. And it became much more comfortable for the crew than in 9s!

    It's a shame for sarcasm slipping through the article, (I can’t call it with subtle humor). Gone are the days when they taunted the signalmen, today not a single army in the world is combat-ready without the organization of command, the nerves of which are the communications units. The service implies the presence of sufficient, but mostly high intelligence l / s, excellent knowledge of entrusted technology and understanding of the capabilities of technical means of counteracting the enemy. So you don’t have to stupidly joke with guys, and you could probably pick up a photo or change the shooting angle.

      Yes, no one mocks the signalmen. I personally stopped "mocking" when across two borders from a field telephone he called home to the center of Russia (then still not the Russian Federation, but the RSFSR) to the city hospital and asked if his wife had given birth or not. And although one of the main skills of our service was the ability to work autonomously (there was no cellular and satellite communications then, and a walkie-talkie is hard, you can do without it, no other load), but I always respected the signalmen with respect and wherever I served - the communication division is always among the first invited to the event drinks

      In 1983. the standard of deployment with the R-409 connection was "excellent" 35-40 minutes. After long "workouts" they were brought up to 25-28 minutes. This is certainly not rocket catching, but the timely transmission of information is sometimes no less important.

The photo series is great, for those who are in the subject, and sarcasm in this case is not appropriate.

    Interestingly, for 12 months, conscripts with a connection to you or only, only.

    The same story, DOSAAF, study and a half years.
    And whom of the platoon at the end of the service, it’s sad, to train the youth again,
    but I need people like you.
    It’s also interesting how to train in a year r \ tlg.

    Thanks for the report, the service immediately comes to mind - "explosions", "jerks", "movement" ... And the technique is familiar. It is not for nothing that communication is called the circulatory system of the army. Even when the body is at rest, blood continues to circulate throughout the body. Our "knots" were also always the first to "undermine" and move forward "into the hills" (Kola Peninsula). It happened that even a few days before the main "movements". "Knots" - because the communications battalion in our unit was called "communications center". During normal training, the guys often turned right on the territory of the unit, since there was where to turn around ... So I had to watch the process more than once. By the way, our signalmen, and this was in the mid-90s, were very well "packed" in terms of technical equipment, even by today's standards. Well, if there was a good acquaintance and an agreement with the duty shift, once a month it was possible to "use the right to call", because until the era of general mobilization (from the word MOBILE) there were five years left ... Thanks again for the report. hi

      For a call home, you could row in full. Although in a hopeless situation had to take risks. I mean calls through the closed one from the Waterfall, Karat to Rubin (Mother of Pearl). 78-79 years About the mobile then ...

    Well, at the end, on the "space" p-440-o, they made a fence on the roof. I saw a dear photo of how the soldiers were holding a "plate" and remembered how once a soldier was blown off the roof by the wind, it was good winter, I landed in a snowdrift along with a "plate". As the chief of the control room, I almost gave my soul to God.

      The call should not be completely abandoned. But maybe. Do you need to increase the draft age? Or individually take into account the physiological characteristics of a person? After all, even at school someone at the age of 6 can go to first grade. and someone at 7 or even at 8.

        It will not work, it seems to be more sensible to call in 25 years. but .. not only are many children on hand .. the main reason at 18 is easier to manage than at 25, what a kid at 18 will do out of stupidity there or not weakly, or maybe just because of fear that 25 will not ! even cut it! Yes, and more literate in 25 people a priori, that's why the appeal at 18 is easier to manage such, and the officers do not know how to fuck horseradish for this and exist ..

    Communication is the same god of war as artillery. It is unacceptable to speak of a communications force in a derogatory tone. Authors should change rhetoric.

    It’s not generally accepted to think about the soldiers, that the sidors that the bags are gas masks trash some ..

    I agree with you one hundred percent, in the 21st century and again with "sidors" this is certainly not correct, I myself use a similar tactical backpack for my work, only "weighed" a little with pouches, it is very convenient, everything is at hand, and it costs reasonably, production, by the way ours.

    Here is a very old story about how signalmen accompanied the deputy commander of the district, who followed as an "assessment spotter" on firing with missilemen.
    At the intermediate airfield, the deputy commander of the district asks the signalman: "Major, how much time do you need to deploy your station?" Answer: "Ten minutes". Command: "Expand!" The conversation lasted about three minutes: "Operational? It's me. Connect to my apartment ... Lyuba, how are you ..."
    It took two hours to bring the station to marching condition.

    We had a telephone operator at the US, I remarked somehow (when I was young) that he was shifting side cutters from his overcoat to his pants before physical charging. And then bang there is no connection with the water pump, well, they send it, look for a cliff, but he cut it off himself because he cut it, and before lunch, he drives the teas. laughing From half a guy was a guy.

    From the Internet stories about military signalmen:
    1983 year Belarus, exercises, ZKP (reserve command post) of the 7-th tank army. Head of Communications - Captain Moshkin. Recently they transferred from Chita, refrain - thieves serve in Germany, bad ones in Afghanistan, and funny ones in Transbaikalia. Summer is hot. From the KShM (command staff machine) bare feet of signalmen stick out, someone is sunbathing on the roof while lying on an AZI (anti-aircraft radiation antenna) Moshkin is resting ...
    Suddenly, Army Chief of Staff Major General Kovalev arrives. The person is legendary - before my eyes I stopped a private soldier and asked why the gate was dirty, then asked who his commander was - a sergeant came running, whom he asked why his boots were not cleaned and who had a commander, a platoon one, he matted for an unbuttoned button on his shirt and asked who he has a commander ...
    Here is such a natural disaster among such a rural idyll. Signalers - the overwhelming population of the ZKP in the state of its own ZKP, fall with their feet towards the epicenter and cover their heads with their hands. Moshkin, pulling on his boots on the go, flies up to the general and reports in the sense that everything is excellent and magnificent - there is no connection with the outside world! (It should be explained that on that day the diesel generator at the Kristall satellite communications station failed - in common parlance, "satellite"). Kovalev, filling with bad blood in a voice hoarse with rage, asks - Why is there no connection? !!! Moshkin bulging his eyes - "On the satellite the diesel has stalled !!!" The general raised his head in puzzlement and looked at the zenith. A second later I dropped it - "Eliminate" and left ... I saw it personally.

    But for a five-minute absence - ANSWERS - on the radio ... they tear us up. And not .. "tankers", damn it.

    We, the radio operators, had 2 minutes to answer, after your call sign sounds.
    In case of being late, the assessment of the whole CSS decreased, per day.
    And ... a gubby shift or, at best, out-of-order outfits.
    Without boasting, no one flew with me.

      We are, in fact, civilians.
      So five minutes is not a deadline for us.
      In general .... how many interesting things. Due.
      My last "hot work", February this year. I am the provider. Those. - for the prize me first.
      A distance of 40 km, a repeater in the middle, all posts are responsible, except for one standing on a perpendicular.
      What the hell? Cellular plow ... I am sending my engineer there, who has thrashed it for 10 years at a point in Chechnya.
      It’s gotten better, it’s coming back, it says that these friends tied the director antenna for the BAR to the mast and sit, fries in KUNG.
      The second day - there is no connection .... again the promise ... again hell. The tangent has sunk. From a match that they don’t understand what they were going to do.
      The third day - again XNYA.
      Only after an unequivocal warning on a cellular ... connection miraculously restored.
      Peacocks, you say ....
      And when I myself, personally, kept in touch with Klaipeda and Leningrad, with Palmas .... from the middle of the Atlantic I spoke with Tashkent ....
      fiction, words and no explanation.
      The signalman must be.

    Great of course! New hardware!
    But everything somehow doesn’t seem like the beginning of the KShU district, but the army training in communication
    - why the hardware is located at a critically small distance from each other, one is not
    particularly accurate ammunition, and there is no communication center channel-forming systems.
    For some reason, tropospheric communication is not used - how will the teams be tied to communication centers
    army? Through some relays P409 (419)? Especially in the initial period of the event.
    - Somehow they don’t really bother about masking positions — neither caponiers nor camouflage
    But there are signs, stands for cable routes, which is no way to uninterrupted communication (how many of them will be needed to lay the connecting lines normal in length, you need to carry them on something, and the connecting lines must be dug up), traced paths.
    In a word, there are questions.
    Once, in 1987, the Commander of the Liaison Forces of the 20th Army, a couple of times forced the 6th Regiment of Communications to deploy the ZKP in the reserve area according to similar observations.
