About proper military training


Observing what is happening in our armed forces, it turned out to raise such a moment as the training of the "adjacent" specialty. For all those who have given their due amount of their lives to the troops, terms such as "gunner-radio operator", "driver-gunner" and others are not new. It was, is, and, I hope, will be.

Communicating a certain number of years ago with acquaintances who had come from the army, noted with regret such a thing: many who served in artillery, missile forces, communications, said that the machine gun was held for the whole service life a couple of times: KMB (with the obligatory shooting of 3 -5 cartridges), oath, a couple of field exits. About proper possession of personal weapons speech did not go at all.

But today we will not discuss this problem, if one exists. On the contrary, I want to talk about the part where this is a complete order. As an example.

We got to the training sessions of the 488 of the rocket brigade. Classes were not ostentatious when there is a high command and a bunch of federal TV channels. Were just us. That is, they observed what was not intended for wide coverage, but was carried out as a training process.

It should be noted that the 488 Brigade is considered the best in our 20 Army and one of the best in the district. And the example of the workflow in the team is to learn many others.

The fact that the rocket men are not ordinary people, I was convinced when in April I was shooting the preparation of salute calculations. There was a little material about this, surprisingly, fireworks and salutes were occupied not by artillerymen, but by rocket men. Related specialty.

But it turned out that the brigade also duly applied to the training of personnel in terms of possession of personal weapons. The driver must be a gunner - a helmet, a bronik, a machine gun - and on the firing line. It is worth in the column "specialty" position "driver of TZM-grenade launcher" - be kind, hit the target with a grenade from an RPG. Fall, by the way.

The essence of what is happening is simple. As Comrade Major, who led the RPG firing practice, explained to me, the drivers of TZM and other vehicles, if they advance to the line, fulfill the role of combat guard, while the rest of the staff take up preparations for the launch — that is, we will train and train.

And they teach and train. Convinced in practice.

By the way, with considerable surprise, I saw women returning from firing lines. I asked the fighter: who is it? "And this is a medical unit headed by a psychologist," was the answer.

But the most interesting thing was at the end, when six buses of conscripts were brought to the firing range of the brigade. And the fighters instantly retrained as shooting instructors and snail drivers. The screams became louder and louder, and the snails really ran.

But let's start in order.

It all starts as laid: with the construction and instruction.

Nomination to the firing line

Further, in principle, everything is pretty monotonous. But loud.

Some - there, others - back.

The first hit in the target.

Speaking of targets. I asked a stupid question why not shoot at armor. The answer was simple: where would take it in the missile unit? Tried to expose the old trucks, but they end after two hits. Clean up longer scrap metal. So it's easier on the layout. And hemorrhoids less.

I really wanted to catch a beautiful frame. Shooting went on, we gradually stumbled, but somewhere on the thirtieth shot lucky:

Meanwhile, at the shooting range, the work went on as usual.

Shot out people quietly crawled into the shadows.

[/ Center]

Doctors frankly bored, for them there was no work.

And they brought pre-conscripts ...

If in general, then, despite some deafness, obtained by close contact with the RPG, satisfaction was the place to be. It's nice to see how combat training is done in a normal combat unit. And it is especially pleasant to understand that this combat training is not a major specialty. But multiplicity is also a necessary thing.

The team will soon celebrate their 30 anniversary. Be sure to attend. And if you’re completely lucky, in the fall we’ll witness combat shooting. Not from machine guns and grenade launchers, of course.

      I, as a person who served military service and after graduating from college, having passed positions from a platoon commander, a company ..., commanding a separate military unit, I am still deeply convinced that one year of service is complete nonsense! Even with intensive combat training, a young man needs elementary to form psychologically! And those who are fighting for a 100% contract army - this is absolutely impossible to do! These are just crimes against all foundations of statehood and common sense - there must be a reasonable proportion! Otherwise, we will be left without a mobilization reserve in addition to the elementary military-patriotic aspect. I will cite the most banal example - in a large-scale continental war, God forbid, contract units and formations covering the state border, the first echelon will rather quickly lose their combat effectiveness due to the loss of personnel, but during this time, where people from civilians should be mobilized elementary skills - but in a simple way, those who have completed military service and do not need to be taught anew, just remind, after conducting combat coordination and forward - the conveyor of the military replenishment machine should work! We are not Luxembourg - we do not take "friends" from NATO, only with China 4 thousand, more than km. the length of the border and on the other side is worth 2,5 million soldiers of the People's Liberation Army, and theoretically more than 200 million huywebin can mobilize China! The Shenyang Military District, which borders on us, has 250 thousand bayonets ... to the maximum, as Vladimir Ilyich used to say: "He studies military affairs in a real way"!

        The fact is that now they do not call everyone for urgency, they call the right amount, and this is about a third of the entire draft contingent, maybe a little more in the demographic pit, but it would be worth calling everyone.
        And if you don’t go to the kitchen and “sweep the parade ground” with a crowbar, it’s enough to train a soldier, they still have time to serve.
        My son served an urgent period, 12-13 years old, asked how it would be enough if you looked objectively: - quite, he says: in two years they would have done a professional beating cutter with irreversible consequences, and for a year he would learn everything, he was a signalman in a motorized rifle company - Enough, shot from everything that is in the battalion, his comrade, he said, counted 3000 shots per year.

          Allow me to inquire about the class of a signalman after one year of service - with which class did he return from the army?
          A purely personal opinion - two years - the minimum service life in order to become a normal specialist (i.e. 1 class). He served at a stationary communication center (wireless telegraph operator of an open auditory telegraph), we assigned the third class at the end of training (the first six months), then completing the training in part, passing the standings for independent self-defense, passing the exam for the second grade (second half), then in during the third half of the year, dense service, delivery to the first grade, and only then, in the last six months of the service, you are already a normal specialist, one hundred percent. I do not impose anything on anyone, but for a year a cool radio operator from a beginner will not work, even if he will spend the night at the radio class.
          PySy - in two years I shot 25 (twenty-five) rounds of ammunition from the SCS - it’s a pity, of course, that it is so small, but this did not depend on me.

            He was a company signalman in the infantry (reconnaissance battalion of the mountain brigade), I don’t even know the class, they didn’t seem to have assigned them, there were more than forty radios in the company, in order - he was in good condition, that's all. He hid for three months from the NS and the brigade signalman, and persuaded him to stay on the contract.

        In a good way, it would be worth starting training with the 6th grade of high school. Moreover, to combine primary military training with physical education in one subject. So that, in the process of military service, not to teach something, but to grind already acquired skills, well, to form psychologically. That would be a mobilization reserve.

          During the Soviet era, NVP - Basic Military Training was taught in schools. In today's education system, there is such a subject - life safety. Relatives of someone from the school leadership are often invited to teach it. And they teach this subject each to the best of his understanding and desire. I learned to assemble and disassemble an automatic machine back in school. They were regularly taken to shooting ranges and shooting ranges. And now the maximum that the teacher at the daughter's class has done is to read out the list of what should be in the "emergency suitcase", and that is just for show. How could it be otherwise when the entire Civil Defense system is destroyed?

          In a good way, it would be worth starting training with the 6th grade of high school. Moreover, to combine primary military training with physical education in one subject.

          It would be nice, but alas, all this runs into the existing education system. Have you ever been to an OBZh lesson (or whatever it is called KBZ) in a modern school? I somehow observed and it looks like this: Teacher monotonously reads out an absolutely theoretical chapter from the textbook, and the guys write. Well, what to do if a person has lost consciousness, how to behave during a fire, how to provide first aid. How to provide first aid, not even at least on the desk partner, but on paper ... rewriting with a pen. And this is all life safety in a modern school. And so all over the country.

          For a long time, ideas have been floating in the air that everything should be changed, it is necessary to introduce real teaching instead of this profanation, and so on. But "things are still there". And I have the opinion that if you do not change the education system, then the CWP will easily turn into the same thing: They will sit, listen, rewrite, and maybe, if there is, they will disassemble the MMG of the Kalashnikov Assault Rifle. And according to tradition, this MMG will be broken to such an extent that it will understand only from one of my coughs, and on a real, and even more so a brand new Kalash, the "student", when trying to fulfill the standard, will rip his nail down to meat. And there is nothing to say about shooting, something tells me that the "people's choice" Yarovaya will be very much against familiarizing schoolchildren with military weapons and live ammunition. Especially with real shooting training. And not only her.

          Well, of course, do not forget about the modern burden of high school students. She has already exceeded reasonable limits and there are already problems with this. NVP in mind is a separate subject from OBZH. So in order to cram the NVP, you need to reduce the load in other subjects, otherwise everything will become even worse.

        I will answer this with the words of one Spartan - "IF".

        In the meantime, thank God, such a thing as that is not expected, because no one has yet destroyed the nuclear shield.

        And it is precisely in our time that the Russian army has finally begun to conduct the most correct and adequate draft policy than in recent decades.

        And at the same time, it is absolutely necessary to increase the share of contractors / long-term employees (call who you like).

        He served as an urgent, And then served in Omon. Compared to your past experience, mine is of course much smaller, but my opinion is that even six months is enough To prepare a good shooter, train him and teach him how to fight. Only this is possible if a lot of non-military activities, such as household work, are deleted from the soldier's service, otherwise I remember well the phrase of the foreman "a soldier's machine is a shovel." If the conscript will be dealt with by professionals in their field, if at least three times a week there will be shooting ranges (60 rounds at least), where the bulk of the classes takes place not on a notebook, but in real training. Where they will conduct interesting tactical classes, show training videos. In general, if the work is tailored to the training of a soldier, And not the desire to show the soldier all the "delights of the so-called army service." PS I returned from the army several years ago, and I will say that according to old-timers, the situation is changing. The same shooting we had at least 20-25 per year, although they used to say there were only 3-4 (and they fired cartridges of 6-10, but at least every third time we were given a whole magazine for me). This made me happy. Our guys were pleasantly surprised, some with poor eyesight and glasses, but aiming at the target at the same 2-3 shooting))

        Tretiak heard these words from the Commander of the Far Eastern Military District when he served in the UR. They will kill everyone, but they will come mobilized and fight, therefore they should store storage facilities for equipment. It is not in vain that BelVO became the Hero of Social Work.

      Because :-
      1) training is much more effective.
      2) It is much cheaper, and at one shot grenade launchers made several approaches.
      3) The holes in the lifting targets indicated the exact location of the hit. Yes, and less often it was necessary to change the target.

        Not a single shooting with bullet-shaped blanks at targets (and even more so, with the use of inset barrels) will not replace shooting with real ammunition at a real target. For the first is good for a shooting gallery, and the second is for a real battle.

          Here I do not agree with you.
          There is simply no normal equipped shooting range in this missile unit. So they study as they can.
          The target (at the shooting range), rises only for 10 seconds. Yes, and moves on rails.
          In these 10 seconds, you need to be in time and make, and aim and get there.
          Moreover! Grenade launcher goes to the line of fire as part of the shift. So .. stress is present.
          Besides. Next come the BSO (combat firing squads) BSV (platoons) RTU (company tactical training with live firing. And so on.
          To prepare a good grenade launcher is required minimum 500 shots "blank" plus 1000 shots with an insert.
          And if a holey tank is put in the field .. and they fire at it even with a charged grenade .. - that’s not it. Not that! And the tank is motionless .. and there is no stress .. and time in bulk.

He brought the behu to the firing position, I was sitting dozing, around the fire from everything.

    terms such as "gunner-radio operator", "driver-gunner" and others are nothing new

    The term "gunner-radio operator" is correct, but "driver-gunner" is not quite, IMHO. Any soldier must and must first of all own a combined arms specialty, and then narrowly specialize. Otherwise, the loss of equipment (car, radio, tank, etc.) is tantamount to the loss of personnel. "And I am a radio operator, I can’t do anything else, I’ll go to surrender," - is it so? soldier

    Normal workflow. They would try like us in 90. Six months without a salary. You can’t go to the tankodrome because it was repaired. Petrol limit, two liters per car per day. The batteries are brisk for the third time. Soldiers are the best gateway people. A battalion without an addict - that a village without a button accordion. For weeks at the training ground, midges are already squeamish about us. We washed ourselves from personal pools. Driving at night was carried out so that the authorities did not see. In part, the minitankodrom was done. According to the result, the equipment was transferred. And drive to the platform from the side. Officers tankers drove themselves. And I, especially trusted sergeants. The order was then, to ensure security, the officers ride for the commander of the car, and the soldiers shoot. Only in BMP-2 just do not ride. You’ll get your hands on two dozen loads. Contrary to orders and a frightened battalion commander, he planted sergeants. And so they returned to normal combat training. Not thanks, but contrary.

      But what, in the Far East and a few years ago, it was like that when he was an conscript, probably now. The batteries are half dead, the training equipment started with a pusher. They hung out at the training grounds for weeks, on the first day they didn’t let the kitchen down, they plowed all day without food and water, at 22 o'clock there is a combined meal. Due to lack of water, they dug pits and drank the water that was typed there. They gave one tent to the company, they all slept sideways, clinging to each other like sprats in a jar to fit. After night shooting I slept for 1.5-2 hours, getting up, it's time for daylight hours. The difference is probably only that driving and shooting was the most I can not.

    Each military unit in a military ID card has a weapon assigned to it. If an assault rifle then it should shoot out of it and not just in that direction. If Art. shooter machine gun and grenade launcher, respectively, those who have nightlights should be able to use them and so on.
    That the drivers of the TZM are guarding your area, this probably corresponds to the military calculation of the unit, and not that he is a driver-shooter, your psychologist woman with a couple of orderlies can put it there.
    The combat training at the training ground includes only the execution of a shooting exercise, and many other elements move around in these places. And your fighters are lying and sitting relaxed, such as tired after shooting.

      Yes you are right. Training should be in accordance with the staffing table. Well, of course, if the unit is the correct unit commander, then the most insidious soldier offended by life feels like a person.

      And shooting from a personal weapon? Yes, once every half a year is enough for peacetime. More important is daily running and physically, and once a week a marching throw with weapons and ozk.

      No lie down. A hill from the left, a flash from the right. Running, constant voltage. Lost consciousness from overheating? Punishment cell. Learn to control your well-being.

      Only in this way and nothing else.

        That's exactly what year! And the guys need to WANT to return to the army to return, if anything happens! But they did not remember the furious discipline and brutality of the officers! And so we will educate potential draft deviators and deserters! (Who even in civilian life will not tell you so - "wow, how great!", But "what a Arctic fox was!".)

        With this approach, you can destroy the health, and even the life of a soldier. Do you need this?

        The purpose of the modern draft army, in my opinion, is to make a WARRIOR from a draftee (to some extent). And do not ditch his health.

          I tried not to distort, but failed. I'll try to avoid mistakes this time :)

          I do not agree with you.

          Each soldier should feel the duty of belonging to the army and country. And the motivation of the loads imposed on the soldier should be connected precisely with this sense of duty.

          If you motivate a soldier with a joyful feeling of celebration, then you will get an LGBT army.

          Well, as it were.

        At first I wanted to support, but when I saw this

        Lost consciousness from overheating? Punishment cell. Learn to control your well-being.

        abruptly stopped wanting and realized the real train of your thoughts. And he immediately remembered the famous deaths of soldiers after they were driven in gas masks. And all because it was led by people like you, it was absolutely the same as what would happen to a soldier, they did not even think that such a long and energetic cross was in itself an extremely high load, and in a gas mask that reduces the flow of oxygen, this load is already professional level. And about the fact that you need to come to the load, that you need to step up step by step to become a Fighter and there was no question. Both they and you do not need Fighters. So they drove yesterday's boys as if they were already professional athletes.

        So you want to give a person an underdosed load not for his physical development, but consider the natural indicators of the pathological nature of such a load (the example you gave with overheating) to be a weakness that needs to be overcome and for which you need to punish. You need to overcome not in order to become stronger, more enduring, more collected, to rise to the next level, or at least because it is possible (and this is known to be impossible), but because you have decided so. From under the "study" of people like you, at best, a weakened and beaten organism will come out whose body will have to recover for a long time to its previous level, but the heart, for example, will not recover. This is at best, otherwise you know from this and you can die. Especially if there are previously undetected pathologies of the cardiovascular system that often manifest themselves precisely with prolonged overload.

        And I wish you one, that you would meet the coach with the same views. That he would chase you so, and after you would constantly vomit and you would simply fall unconscious, and then a punishment cell. And after a year, a dead heart would have made itself felt, because this is what you are striving for, isn't it? No not like this. You are ready to kill others, but there is definitely no way to let yourself be torn to pieces.

      Did they really have to be left in the ranks next to the shooters ?!

      There is a schedule. Each shift is busy with its own business.
      One shoots. Another sits in the shooting range classes on theory. Still others are practicing the manufacture.
      Fourth - drive small tactics -)) The fifth receives ammunition.
      But a soldier is a soldier. laughing Always strives to lie down in the shade. Yes, and officers .. it happens in crowbars. Ce la vie.

    Once I spoke on this topic, but I repeat and remember the Soviet system - in the nursery and kindergarten, the initial healthy development under the supervision of competent educators, in the school of knowledge, parallel sports sections, and a little later - technical circles, NVP, DOSSAAF ... K many armies had ranks in sports, technical skills, parachuting, general knowledge of military affairs and the habit of working in a team. In the army, to a greater or lesser extent, they were distributed according to their abilities (circus performers, athletes and punks in the airborne forces, tractor drivers for a tank, technicians as signalmen), the necessary knowledge was deepened, new knowledge was given, tactics were worked out, etc. Under such a system, a person developed gradually and he was ready for the army. As for the service life, I think that in a year you can get all the necessary knowledge, but to learn how to use it, you need more time.
