    So, with all the additional contract soldiers for Armed forces brought in during last two years, (70 thousand more) is it safe to guesstimate that *current* Russian ground army numbers around 270 thousand? And that airborne troops are somewhere around 40 to 50 thousand?

    Ground forces are around 300,000 and Airborne around 45,000.


    Aerospace Forces around 190,000, Navy around 140,000 and Rocket around 60,000 just to be fair.

    I recently checked milkavkaz.net, and I found out that the 150th Motor Rifle Division is being formed on the basis of the 33rd Detached (Mountain) Motor Rifle Brigade, and also inherited the brigade's equipment and personnel.

    EDIT: I also found out that it will be under the command of a new Combined Arms Army.

    An excerpt from an article just showing the physical size of the military.

    "Another issue on the agenda of the meeting also was due to the time of year. It was about the preparation of the barracks and housing facilities and public utilities for the upcoming heating season. Defense Minister stressed that improved training for the cold allowed a third to reduce the number of accidents in the past year.
    - It is important that in the future about 4 thousand boilers and 70 thousand kilometers of service lines running smoothly, and more than 85 thousand objects of barracks and housing facilities were fully provided with warmth and light, - set the task to General of the Army Sergei Shoigu and said that to this end, in 2016 launched a pilot project for the modernization of the heat sector under concession agreements.
    According to the minister, the involvement of private investors will increase the reliability of heat supply and apply to the Ministry of Defense facilities, modern energy-saving technologies."

    Are these figures by insider reports on forums or have they been publicly stated by officials?

    Also, ground army still doesn't operate helicopters, right? So once helicopter units do get transferred to the army, its numbers should grow by a 20-30 thousand? (and Air force numbers will shrink?)

    There should also central administration on top of service branches, right? Another 50-150 thousand?

    Publicly stated except for the Navy. It's my own estimate based on old figure publicly stated with units added after merger of Crimea and old Ukrainian Navy units. I also track units, TOE's etc and these figures are within those.

    Just because somebody in the military states a figure doesn't make it 100%. Disinformation is very important in Russian military thought. Probably around 100,000 in Central Command and Rear Services including Railway Troops. I'm not sure if the Helicopter Units do get transferred, expect they will be placed under operational control of the Ground Forces similar to Ground Forces and Aerospace Forces being placed under Operational Control of the Navy in certain areas.

    According to some other reading, it appears the plan is for most of the Combat Regiments and Brigades to have 2 BTG's made out of Contract soldiers with the 3rd battalion being composed of Conscript soldiers. I guess they (3rd bn) will act as a reserve, protect the rear and clean up after any combat action. There are some Regiments / Brigades that are or supposed to become 100% contractors so they would have 3 BTG's one would assume. Presently either active or being formed I count 73 Combat Regiments / Brigades not including Spetsnaz units but including Airborne and Naval Infantry. There are also 5-6 separate battalions.

    It is my understanding that 4000 reservist were organized into Territorial Defense battalions which will stay in reserve. There are plans to organize upwards to 100,000 reservist into units which will stay formed and act like a ready reserve (part-time). In the past, so many (actually very few) would be called up for refresher individual training but now there will be permanently organized reserve units. At least that is the plan. In the past there may be officially 2,000,000 reserves but they receive no training nor are organized into units. So for 6 months after war breaks out, are not much use to anyone as they are retrained and organized into units. New plan would have a 100,000 ready for action.

    In November last year, the Ministry of Defence has placed on the federal portal of the draft regulations draft amendments to the law "On Military Duty and Military Service", which proposes the introduction of short-term contracts in the Armed Forces. It was planned that a legal act must come into force in August 2016, but something went wrong, it turns out, it is still only offered to the consideration of the Government:

    *****
    Commission on legislative activities approved a bill on the possibility of a military short-term contracts

    The bill proposes to provide servicemen undergoing military service (not earlier than one month prior to the expiration of the military life), and the citizens in the reserve, have expressed a desire to enter military service under the contract, to participate in solving problems during emergencies or to maintain or restore peace and security and to suppress international terrorist activities outside the territory of Russia, as well as in the campaigns of the ships, the right to conclude a contract for military service up to the termination of the circumstances giving rise to its conclusion, but not more than one year from the date of signing the contract for military service.

    The draft federal law "On Amendments to the Federal Law on Military Duty and Military Service" (hereinafter - the law) has been prepared as part of the Ministry of Defense of subparagraph "d" of paragraph 1 of the Decree of the President of Russia on May 7, 2012 №604 "On further improvement of military service Russian Federation".

    In accordance with the legislation in force the first contract for military service by a serviceman undergoing military service, or any other citizen, to enlist in the military position, for which the state provided the rank of soldiers, sailors, sergeants, master sergeants, is for a period of two years or three years, at the choice of the citizen. With conscript or other citizen, to enlist in the military position, for which the state provided the rank of warrant officer, warrant officer or officer, the first contract is for five years.

    The conclusion of the first contracts with these categories of citizens for shorter periods (from six months to one year) is provided only in the period of emergency (disaster management, the implementation of measures of emergency, to restore constitutional order and other emergencies), or to participate in activities maintenance or restoration of peace and security.

    In connection with the intensification of the activities of international terrorist and extremist organizations, it became necessary to increase the mobility of troops (forces), the formation of the consolidated and non-standard units and staffing them in a short time undergoing military service under the contract, to promptly solve the short-term, but important problems related to their part in the operation to curb the activities of terrorist and extremist organizations.

    The purpose of the bill - to maintain the required level of staffing undergoing military service under the contract, military units involved for solving problems during emergencies or to participate in the maintenance or restoration of peace operations and security or to combat terrorism outside Russia and in order to participate in the campaigns of the ships.

    The bill proposes to provide servicemen undergoing military service (not earlier than one month prior to the expiration of the military life), and the citizens in the reserve, have expressed a desire to enter military service under the contract, to participate in solving problems during emergencies or to maintain or restore peace and security and to suppress international terrorist activities outside the territory of Russia, as well as in the campaigns of the ships, the right to conclude a contract for military service up to the termination of the circumstances giving rise to its conclusion, but not more than one year from the date of signing the contract for military service.

    The bill will be considered at the session of the Government.
    *****


    Apparently, the text of the bill has undergone some changes since the fall of 2015, so where to find the latest version on the government website?

    By the way, interesting information from the text of the explanatory note to the bill:

    Monitoring of selection of items for military service under the contract created in the structure of human bodies of the Russian Federation Armed Forces in 2012, shows that of the total number of citizens who applied on the enlistment contract, approximately 20% were willing to sign contracts for more soon as possible to participate in specific activities or transactions.

    Sorry... I didn't realise it was something he formulated himself... I thought it was something official he was linking to...

    And I totally agree with your views of him...

    Some more info about the 90th Tank Division


    Russian armed forces to form new 90th Tank Division in the Chelyabinsk Region.

    Russian armed forces work to form the 90th Tank Division in the Chelyabinsk Region in the Urals that is being carried out on schedule and will be completed on time, the Russian Central Military District’s press office said.



    The press office made this statement following a check carried out by District Troops Commander Colonel-General Vladimir Zarudnitsky.

    "Colonel-General Zarudnitsky has checked the final stage of the establishment of a new tank large unit, heard reports on the composition, the state and the strength of units and inspected the readiness of firing and gunnery ranges, tank driving ranges and tactical fields for the new training period that will start on December 1," district spokesman Yaroslav Roshchupkin said.

    "The district troops commander said after the trip that the work to form the division was being carried out on schedule and would be completed on time," he added.

    It was announced in January 2016 that a tank division would be set up in the Urals.

    The tank division will operate advanced versions of the T-72 tank, the T-72B3. The division will comprise tank units, a motor rifle and a self-propelled artillery regiment, an air defense missile battalion, as well as reconnaissance, communications, medical and logistic support units.

    The new Russian divisions formed so far have been double strength brigades so they can do much more.
