Commanders are relying on the quality
2009-12-04 / Viktor Litovkin
In 2009, exercises of the armed forces of Russia were almost continuously.
December 1, 2009 was for our Armed Forces a remarkable day. First, the Minister of Defense sent a report to the Supreme Commander in Chief, which is officially reported on the implementation of the plans of the first phase of military reform and give the Army and Navy of the new long-term appearance. Secondly, from this day on the tradition in the Army begins new school year, and it also will extend all the changes that have occurred in BC in recent years. And, third, and at the same time - in the fourth and fifth - the first day of winter should finally begin to learn of future professionals, sergeants and operators of UAVs in the rifle brigade - come platoons of snipers, and in garrisons - military police. .. But first things first.
On the eve of the alleged events with journalists met Head of training and service troops of the Armed Forces of Russia Lieutenant-General Valery Yevnevich. He summarized inversely studies in the outgoing year, and also spoke about the operational and strategic, tactical, special and exemplary exercises, which are scheduled for 2010.
And although the traditional final test in 2009 will not, nor will be held and the meeting of senior officers with the President (which, according to the "NWO", scheduled for March next year), the quality and results of combat training was the general as saying.
RANGE PEACE NOT EVEN DREAMING
Above all, said Valery Yevnevich, the fact that in the course of giving a new image of the armed forces, when the re-formation took place in the new structure of one half of the combat troops, and then the second, reappointed officials, was diversion of equipment from one region of the country to another, address other organizational tasks, glow of combat training and training is not reduced. He was, perhaps, as high as ever. In summer and autumn, there were several successive complex operational and strategic doctrines that are comparable in size and number of participating troops and military equipment with only those maneuvers that took place during the Soviet era. Among them, the general highlighted the first large-scale operational-strategic exercises "Autumn 2009", conducted in several stages almost throughout the country. They were attended by all kinds and all kinds of troops of the Armed Forces.
The maneuvers began in the North Caucasus Military District (the "Kavkaz-2009"), then continued in the territory of the Leningrad Military District ( "Ladoga-2009" involving special forces of the Kaliningrad region, where for the first time in post-Soviet period was carried out an amphibious operation involving ships and Marines of the Black Sea, Baltic and Northern Fleet). Then went smoothly on the Belarusian land (West 2009). The participants were united, Russian-Belarusian group of troops, backed by bomber aircraft long-range aircraft, as well as parts of the Collective Security Treaty. And ended up in Kazakhstan, on the range "Matybulak" with the participation of Russian, Kazakh troops and the individual units and operational teams from Armenia, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. And, moreover, had long hikes domestic seafarers in the Atlantic and Indian Ocean, our missile flights to Venezuela, combat firing of air defense systems in Ashuluk and Transbaikalia, on the range "Telemba. Such mass movements of troops and military equipment at such great distances, the general said, over the past twenty years, none of the generals can not remember.
Past teachings, said Valery Yevnevich, showed that the leadership of the Army and Navy have learned from last year's August events in the Caucasus, and today, our troops are able to perform a variety of combat missions in any theater of operations without additional rearrangements, resupply and other types of training. They can act autonomously staffing immediately after receiving a combat mission. Results for the last year there were 15 brigade tactical exercises, 161 Battalion, 736 of company and battery, 8 thousand live firings. Plus, it has 600 special credits and 280 tactical command and staff training. Paratroopers carried out 188 thousand parachute jumps, which is 35 thousand more than in 2008. From military transport planes had dropped 93 units of military equipment. This scale amphibious operations, said Evnevich, not a single army in the world. Duration young pilots managed to bring up an extra 55 hours per person.
