Yelninskaya division will be fully deployed by the middle of next year

50
The motorized rifle division being created in the Smolensk region will be fully formed by mid-2017 and will be part of the 1st tank army, passes TASS.




“The General Staff, in coordination with the Minister of Defense, made the final decision that the new Yelninskaya motorized rifle division, along with the Taman motorized rifle and Kantemirovskaya tank divisions, would be included in the 1 Guards Tank Army,” a military source told the news agency.

"The formation of the division in the Smolensk region began much later than the same type of connections in the Voronezh and Rostov regions, so the completion of its acquisition and construction of infrastructure facilities for it is planned not for December of this year, but for the end of the first half of next year"
clarified the source.

According to him, "the number of divisions with headquarters in Elna will be about 10 thousand people." It will consist of "three motorized rifle and one tank regiment, self-propelled artillery and anti-aircraft missile regiments, as well as support units," the source added.

    The 1st Guards Tank Army during the Second World War took part, including in the Berlin offensive operation, and would have lived well until it was disbanded. It is good that there were wise people in order to recreate it. Thank you very much.

      In total, two divisions will be formed in the Western District, and one in the Southern District.

        That's it ... in the Smolensk region, up to Moscow, 460 versts on the road from the border almost everything was torn apart .. I generally think that there is not enough one division there, aviation and air defense are serious there. And do not rely on Old Man ..

        In the Leningrad region on the Priozersky direction there is the famous rolling in Losevo, where there are kayaks and festivals, and I have local good friends there. 6 km from there is the village of Sapernoe. And there was a conserved part that caused bitterness and despondency in my soul. And the village was, in principle, a former military town. And so long ago this miracle happened that I can’t remember when (10, 20 years ago?), But when the re-conservation of the unit was suddenly started, I still remember what a mental upsurge it caused me!

      And me too). Who will explain how to create these new divisions. By combining existing units and brigades, or creating new ones, increasing the size of our army? Does this mean the appearance of thousands of new places for soldiers of urgent and contract service?

        The main thing is that real fighters pass through it, and not account cards. I had seen enough at one time on cropped-neutered divisions even standing on the database. And laughter and sin. Hopefully not right now. And then, after all, they did it from the institutes of the state academies - we know how to do it, but the sense of those academies is zero.

          The size of the army does not change, the deployment of the units from which these divisions are formed is changing. If the West has already declared us enemy number 1 and is equipping its forward lines near our western border, then we must have the appropriate tools: divisions covering dangerous areas, trained soldiers and officers and the technique is not for show, but prepared on command to march and join the battle. Otherwise it would not be worth bothering --- only constant readiness, no one to run, no need to search. We received the order number and started to perform the task in an organized manner. And the tasks can be the most difficult, at any moment the bugler can play "Battle alarm" --- with the awareness of this moment, it is easier to endure hardships, there is a sense in everyone's actions.

    My father near Yelnya in 1941 received a splinter in his leg (from which he died in 1974). I really want this division to be full-blooded, which means it would not have suffered irreparable losses.

    Well, where are THREE motorized rifle regiments, if you can make 2 armored tanks easy? !!! I understand that the structure of the motorized rifle division is such, but this topic was already discussed and it was recognized that the number of BTTs in the division is a decisive factor for breaking through the defense and breaking it under modern conditions - all the more so.

      In fact, in full MSP a reinforced tank battalion was put in the state.
      And where is the guarantee that it is necessary to sharpen the OSH for a breakthrough in defense? The practice of recent years shows that there are more combat (battalion) groups in use. IMHO, of course.

      I also have a double impression. On the one hand, I know that it is unlikely that there were children from the families of oligarchs and elites. And on the other hand, it means they took the boys from normal families, from the outback of Russia, and taught this behavior? And now they are accused of tempting, the merchant manners woke up. In the neck it is necessary to drive these "teachers" who completely solved the formula "from rags to riches". How many implicit "princes" have they trained?
      That the Yelninsky division was deployed is good! But you need a monument to F.E. Dzerzhinsky to return to his place in Moscow. It will be a good shower for many cold-headed hot heads.
