Shoigu: an army corps formed in the Baltic Fleet


“From 1 on April 2016 of the year, the 11 Army Corps was formed in its structure (the Baltic Fleet),” Shoigu told the board on Wednesday.

“Technical re-equipment of the fleet forces continues. Over the past three years, two warships, six boats of various designation, the latest salvo-fire systems and air defense systems have entered the formations and military units. All this contributed to an increase in the combat potential of the Baltic Fleet, ”he said.

Earlier, the minister said that in order to counter NATO's efforts to build up military forces near the Russian borders, 3 divisions are being created, two of which are in the west and one in the south.

Help Agency: “The army corps is a combined arms unit of the ground forces. Designed to solve operational tactical tasks. May include two to four or more divisions. The strength of the army corps can reach several tens of thousands of servicemen. ”

      Here, Finns also fit to start screaming. The glorious 11th Rifle Corps of the Red Army, formed in the LenVO, took part in the Soviet-Finnish War. And in the border battles of 1941 in Lithuania and Latvia. So there is someone to think about. Historical analogies, you know.

          I think that a housing is needed in this reality. If NATO decided to place battalions on our borders, then we are safe ...
          But is it worth it to hold so many troops for a long time? Maybe we should think about expanding our borders in order to push NATO away from our borders ?! am

              By the way, while in 1943 in the Red Army they did not have shoulder straps, the generals had the rank of "Komkor", so then.

                A little more precisely, the corps commander as a rank was before the 40th, 4 June. After this position could be occupied by major generals as a rule ..... but here according to the situation - in the 37th and 91st positions of different levels were engaged in "lagging" ranks, and during the war there was a shortage of higher-ranking officers.

            You passed the exam in history? The corps were structurally part of the Kutuzov army in 1812, and where was Germany then? Army corps existed during the Russo-Japanese War. and what to do now with the armies and divisions of the Germans, they existed just like the SS regiments.

            Sir, for your information: army corps were and are in almost all armies of the world (excluding pseudo-armies: Vatican, Liechtenstein and other small armies). In the Imperial Army there were corps, in the Red Army there were corps, but in 1941 they were temporarily disbanded and then restored again from the summer of 1943.

    For disrupting the formation of the 11th army corps of the Baltic Fleet, the commander of the Baltic Fleet, Vice Admiral Viktor Kravchuk, was burned! Shoigu does not forgive fraud and deceit, especially when it comes to the conditions of service and life of military personnel!

      Stupidity, town! Who said the MP case? Back in 2015, information appeared on the composition of the 11th building.
      The decision to create the Army Corps in the Kaliningrad region was made by the top military-political leadership of Russia at the end of 2015.
      At the request of the veterans, the newly created corps was assigned number 11 in memory of the 11th Guards Red Banner Combined Army deployed in the territory of this region.
      The 11th army itself in 1997 was transformed into the coastal and ground forces of the Baltic Fleet. These troops as of 2015 included:
      336 brigade of the marine corps,
      79 motorized rifle brigade,
      7 motorized rifle regiment,
      244 artillery and 152 missile brigades,
      22 anti-aircraft missile regiment.

      In 1989, preparations were underway to sign the Treaty on the Limitation of Armed Forces in Europe (CFE). Since the forces of the fleet did not fall under reduction, four motorized rifle divisions (they became known as coastal defense divisions), one artillery brigade, two artillery regiments, and a separate machine gun and artillery battalion were transferred to the Navy.

      11 AK - this is coastal defense - BF is now responsible for the Kaliningrad region.
      In Gusev, a record number of participants in the night bike ride and the festive procession dedicated to Victory Day was noted. More than 6 thousand people drove in columns in the streets of the city - this is every fifth resident of the municipality. For the first time in the history of military parades in Gusev, military equipment entered the square. For the first time in ceremonial calculation, the cadets of the Gusev branch of St. Andrew the First-Called Naval Corps minted a step. For the first time, the military parade in Gusev was hosted by the commander of the recently formed 11th Army Corps, Major General Yuri Yarovitsky. He was awarded the Order of St. George IV degree for participating in the counter-terrorist operation in Syria.
