Airborne units near Ryazan for the first time demonstrated an integrated approach to solving combat training tasks

“The first among the units and subunits of the Airborne Forces this method was tested and introduced this year into the combat training system paratroopers of the Tula Airborne Division. In the course of conducting a comprehensive lesson a practical rally was drawn up with the landing of personnel, equipment and weapons, ”the release says.

It is reported that "after the landing of the main landing forces, special units conducted a raid and violated the conditional control system of the enemy, and also captured the airfield." At this time, "UAV calculations determined the most important strategic objectives, which were hit with attached mortar and artillery batteries."

The landing of subunits and equipment in the rear of the “enemy” “was carried out from a height of 600 meters from 5 BTA IL-76 aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Force,” the press service specified.

“The uniqueness of this technique lies in the fact that combat training tasks are carried out by the personnel of the unit in the complex, and all stages are carried out in dynamics without interruption. Previously, verification and assessment of the coordination of a paratrooper company or a platoon was carried out according to individual elements: during landing, when performing tactical or fire missions, etc., ”
told the deputy commander of the Tula airborne unit Andrei Vasilyev.

“Now this approach will be the admission of the unit to company tactical doctrine,” he added.

    Clear. If shooting, then from the march (or from a march, when breathing "with a whistle" and hands shaking)! The combat readiness of our troops is being increased by all means. In reality, they are preparing for combat conditions, without "showing off."

    Improving combat training is a powerful incentive to solve any problems, however, there are no impossible tasks for the Airborne Forces.

    Devils striped there accidentally field kitchens did not destroy in the heat of a "combat" attack, and then something to devour something "conditional enemy". You need to be more attentive, you need to be more attentive, and stop chewing, straight on Vinokur: "Corporal Pear, stop chewing!" ...

    All the same, in the minds of our general staff officers there is enough "porridge" in the form of "management efficiency". If only they would have graduated from the Higher School of Economics (or even better, something from London), and then the cost in the first 5 minutes of the battle of the "guard of Private 51st PDP Ivanov" will be finalized. A holistic approach is great, but it should be like a sunrise, of course. This material says that this was not the case before. Yes, it was, just this time everything turned out as the "effective managers" from the General Staff wanted. There is nothing to boast about, it has been and will always be. But this time there was enough money for the entire combat training program from start to finish, which was what the Divisional Commander Vasiliev told reporters;)

    Another question is interesting. When capturing an airfield, one group of paratroopers guards the airfield, and the other captures. The question of who is whom is not discussed in advance. And so the teachings are obtained with a known result. Not interested. If some paratroopers defend, while others advance, it will be more interesting. These will work out coherence in the defense, and these in the offensive.

    Why didn't this happen before? It was ... As an example of the Shield 80 teachings. Troops from Belarus began to move and without stopping completed all stages such as crossings on the move, conducting hostilities, capturing settlements and so on. I myself took part in them as a mediator. I do not know about the participation of the Airborne Forces, but only the newly formed DSB took part in the GSVG, as did aviation. Is everything new really well forgotten old?
