    Holy shit, what's the game plan here?


    You put mines on the beach to counter landing force. You can deploy them also in the shallow water where the vehicles will touch the ground.

    Very high speed clearing of lanes where vehicles like BTR-82s can drive up the beach without having to worry about mine rollers etc.

    Well actually before they land they will send recon forces to find the best locations for landing and if they find a prepared defence then they will likely choose somewhere else to land.

    Some times there is not a wide range of choice, but with the new ships and helicopters and presumably hovercraft they are developing they could certainly land in places not suitable for boats and move inland in a bit of depth and then move down the coastline and attack a port from land and sea to land troops and equipment... the VDV could cooperate by seizing an airfield nearby that could start landing forces too...

    Not many countries in peace time could get away with mining their best shallowest beaches, and as shown if they do then landing ships with mine clearance charges can be used to very rapidly clear the way.

    The biggest problem with mines on a beach is that the tide often moves them... which makes it a real bastard to manage when you are walking down what you think is a clear zone and boom.

    Of course modern mine systems use two way communication so you can turn them on and off... turn them off and let the enemy land partially and then turn them on and hit them with an airburst artillery barrage that wont destroy any mines and let them try to escape over the mines... all sorts of nasty games can be played.... of course the Russians would just launch Bereg and BAL and Bastion at the ships as they approach the coast along with Kinzhal from MiG-31Ks...

    VLADIVOSTOK, January 10 - RIA Novosti. A new strike tank unit, armed with T-80BV tanks, has been formed on the basis of the Primorsky Marine Corps of the Pacific Fleet, the information support department of the Eastern Military District's press service for the Pacific Fleet said on Monday.
    "A new tank unit has been formed in the Pacific Fleet's (Pacific Fleet) Coastal Forces' Marine Corps, deployed in the Primorsky krai Territory. It has received more than 30 modernized modernized T-80BV tanks, which will significantly enhance the strike capabilities of the Pacific Fleet's Primorsky Marine Corps," the statement says.
    The technique has already been received and accepted by the drivers of those tanks. The formed tank battalion as part of the Marine Corps unit will begin coordinating and training in combat training during the winter training period.
    A distinctive feature of the T-80BV family of tanks is a single gas turbine power plant, for which the tank was named "flying". The tank is capable of accelerating to a speed of over 70 km / h and driving about 500 kilometers without refueling. The BBO (Eastern military district) noted that the equipment has proven itself well when operated in extreme Arctic conditions, which largely corresponds to the harsh Far Eastern winters.

    A decision was made to increase the number of marines of the Russian Navy

    The number of marines of the Russian Navy will be increased, the decision on this has been made, the necessary actions are being taken. This was stated by Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Lieutenant General Viktor Astapov.

    The Ministry of Defense decided to increase the size of the Marine Corps through the formation of new units and subunits. The decision was made against the backdrop of a change in the military-political situation. According to Astapov, the Marine Corps, even in its current strength, is capable of solving the tasks assigned to it, but recent world events have shown that this may not be enough in the future.

    The existing strength of the Marine Corps as a whole ensures the fulfillment of the assigned tasks, but taking into account the change in the military-political situation, it is planned to form new units and subunits - said the lieutenant general in an interview with the Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper.

    In addition to increasing the number, it is also planned to increase the combat potential of the Marine Corps through rearmament with promising models of equipment, the introduction of combat experience within the framework of the NMD and personnel training.

    It is worth noting that the Marine Corps units are actively involved in a special military operation, often playing the role of simple infantry, however, like paratroopers. As a result of the operation, many conclusions will be drawn, including on the use of forces and means, as well as the tasks they perform, but this is in the future. Now the marines are fighting Ukrainian soldiers on the front line.

    At the very beginning of the NMD, the marines of the Black Sea Fleetand the Caspian flotilla managed to take Berdyansk, forcing the enemy to abandon the city and run away. Marine units entered the city immediately from the sea and by land. In the future, units of the Marine Corps participated in the liberation of Mariupol and many other cities and towns.

    NOTE: not much here in the way of details but George needed a Friday picker upper Smile The Naval Infantry has already announced some upgrades in the past. A third battalion was to be formed for each brigade / regiment (only the Black Sea unit had 3 battalions) The reconnaissance company was to be increased to a battalion and Tank companies or battalions were to be added.

    At sea pace: how the structure of black berets will change in the coming years
    And due to which their combat power will grow significantly


    Since the first day of the special operation in Ukraine, Marines have been actively involved in combat operations. People in pea jackets and pea caps in 1918 were one of the symbols of the Civil War. The exploits of the marines of the Soviet Union are written in gold letters in the history of the Great Patriotic War — they distinguished themselves in the defense of Odessa and Sevastopol, Novorossiysk and Leningrad, Murmansk and Moscow. In the future, these units took part in the Chechen wars, in the operation to force the Georgian authorities to peace, as well as in many local conflicts around the world. How the legendary black berets are fighting today and what changes can be expected in the structure of the Marine Corps in the next decade — Izvestia understood.

    In hard-fought battles

    On the account of the Marines-a successful landing near Berdyansk, the liberation of Mariupol. Serious forces of the VFU were shackled in the Odessa region, when amphibious ships of the Black Sea Fleet imitated the preparation of an amphibious operation. The battles in the Kiev and Kharkiv directions at the beginning of the SVO were also successful. Later, the Marines were noted during the storming of the village of Pavlovka in the Donbass.

    As of today, the 155th Marine Brigade of the Pacific Fleet has been awarded the honorary title "Guards" by Russian President Vladimir Putin's decrees. And the 336th brigade of the Baltic Fleet was awarded the Order of Zhukov. Eight Marines earned the title of Hero of Russia, unfortunately, some of them — posthumously. Undoubtedly, the Marines, their courage and training were one of the discoveries of the SVO. One can only regret that currently there is no practice of awarding honorary titles for the liberation of a particular locality, and then there is information that the military Council of the Black Sea Fleet has applied for the assignment of the honorary name "Mariupol"to the 810th brigade.

    Marines (MP) are essentially soldiers of the three elements, capable of operating in land, sea, and air landings. Such opportunities are given to them by enhanced combat training, and the history of the Russian Marine Corps serves as a good motivation "not to drop the glory of their ancestors."

    In Soviet times, their main formation was the brigade. Such a formation at that time consisted of an amphibious assault and reconnaissance battalion, three marine battalions (one of them was cropped), a tank - on floating PT-76s-and a powerful artillery component. There were four brigades in total. But there was also the 55th Marine Division in Vladivostok. Its main task was the land defense of the Muravyov-Amursky Peninsula, on which Vladivostok stands. The Marine brigades were primarily focused on operations of the beginning of a possible war with NATO-the seizure of straits in the Baltic Sea and the Turkish Straits to ensure the withdrawal of Soviet Navy forces from the closed sea areas of the Baltic and Black Seas.

    At the end of the Soviet era, the process of adapting Marine corps units, as well as other coastal units of the Soviet Navy, to new realities was underway — the so-called reform of General Ivan Skuratov. In the course of it, in particular, it was planned to double the power of this type of troops — to create a second amphibious assault battalion in their composition and deploy a couple more marine infantry battalions. The battalions themselves became larger units consisting of four companies with two artillery batteries. New tanks were to come into service with the MP units. However, the collapse of the USSR prevented these plans, moreover, a large-scale reduction began. As a result, at the beginning of the first Chechen War, the main unit of the 61st Brigade of the Northern Fleet-the amphibious assault battalion — was understaffed in 80% of its personnel. But this did not prevent the Northern Fleet Command from completing and preparing the battalion. As a result, the Northern Fleet Marines managed to prove themselves worthy in the storming of Grozny and, in particular, the Dudayev Palace.

    Since 1991, there has been a constant process of reforming, reducing and optimizing the Russian Navy's Marine corps units, especially in the course of the so-called new and new look reforms. In principle, by 2017, the structure of units was established in the form of a brigade (reconnaissance and amphibious assault battalions, one or two marine infantry battalions, an artillery division, a tank battalion or company, sniper and drone companies, as well as other units).

    In 2018, the 177th Marine Regiment was established in Kaspiysk. It consists of three battalions, a reconnaissance and amphibious company, a drone company, artillery and other units. Most likely, it is on it that the promising regimental structure of the Marine Corps is being tested.

    Prospective changes


    By the beginning of the SVO, the Marine Corps consisted of five brigades and one regiment. In the course of the operation, a certain number of battalions were formed from volunteers and conscripts who were trained on the basis of MP formations. So, it is known about at least three Tiger battalions formed in Primorye on the basis of the 155th Guards Brigade.

    The current global tectonic events require significant reinforcement, primarily of the Russian Navy's marine corps units. On December 21, 2022, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced plans to form five MP divisions.

    In Kamchatka, the 40th Krasnodar-Harbin Double Red Banner Brigade is practically the only formation capable of resisting the attempts of a possible enemy to seize this remote territory. Due to the development of the amphibious ships and transport aircraft available to it, it is better to have larger units in this region than now. In its current form, the 40th brigade includes, in fact, two combat battalions, which is clearly not enough. At the same time, the Kuril Islands are still located near Kamchatka, and it is necessary to have forces for their defense.

    In Primorye, the 155th Guards Brigade is also, in fact, the only major unit in the Vladivostok region capable of defending the region and participating in counter-amphibious operations on Sakhalin Island and the Kuril Islands. In the coming years, the Pacific Fleet (Pacific Fleet) will be replenished with at least one, or even two universal landing ships of the project 23900 "Ivan Rogov" and two landing ships of the project 11771. Accordingly, the projection capabilities of the amphibious force will increase and a slightly larger compound than the current one will be required.

    In the north, on the Kola Peninsula, Russia currently has only three brigades: the 61st Kirkenes Red Banner MP, the 200th Motorized Rifle and Arctic Brigades. Sweden and Finland have finally decided to break with their neutrality and join NATO. Accordingly, Russia will have to strengthen its northern borders. Recently, the Defense Minister announced that several brigades, including the 200th motorized Rifle division, will be reorganized into motorized rifle divisions. But, in addition, Russia has a long border along the Arctic Ocean. Given the creativity of our Western potential opponents, nothing prevents them from organizing some "liberation movement" somewhere in Yamal, then declaring independence from Russia and asking for foreign military assistance. We are already seeing something similar in Asia and Africa. Therefore, Russia should have a free mobile force that can be quickly deployed by sea or air to any area of our Arctic possessions. So the MP division is also needed in the north.

    In the Kaliningrad exclave, the 336th Guards Brigade of the Orders of Zhukov, Suvorov and Alexander Nevsky and a number of other units of the coastal troops of the Baltic Fleet are deployed. The exclave is surrounded by the most hostile NATO states to Russia-Poland and the Baltic limitrophes. Moreover, Poland has recently been quantitatively and qualitatively strengthening its armed forces. Hence the direct need for Russia to strengthen its formations in this remote region, including units capable of conducting amphibious operations.

    The 810th Guards Order of Zhukov brigade is deployed in Crimea. As part of the DPR troops, there are formations that can be attributed to the Marine corps, such as the 9th Mariupol-Khingansky Regiment of the MP. In 2023, we should expect the integration of parts of the DPR and LPR into the Russian Armed Forces. It is possible that the Black Sea Marine division will be deployed on the basis of these units. And in general, the situation in the Ukrainian direction for many years to come will require the presence of powerful forces capable of also conducting amphibious operations.

    Do not forget the fact that on warships and auxiliary vessels on long trips there are groups of marines to defend these units themselves from enemy saboteurs. With the increase in naval personnel and the intensification of the Russian Navy's combat service, more Marines are also needed to defend our ships.

    Thus, at present, there is a direct need for Russia to increase the number and power of its amphibious assault units. Such work is already underway. So, for example, as part of the Pacific Fleet marine brigades operating in the Donbass, 152-mm Hyacinth artillery systems are observed, which were not previously in service with MP units. The divisions themselves, presumably, will look like this: two marine infantry regiments, a tank and reconnaissance battalion, an artillery regiment, and a battalion with drones. And in general, the combat power of these units will grow significantly.

    In its current form, the 40th brigade includes, in fact, two combat battalions, which is clearly not enough. 
    Thanks to the powerful submarine group + the growing number of missile ships and aviation it is highly unlikely that an enemy can bring in a force strong
    enough to fight even this one brigade.

    Nothing prevents them from organizing some "liberation movement" somewhere in Yamal.
    Except the enviromental conditions (ice) most of the time. Or does someone think that Russia will lease a few icebreakers to NATO for such an operation?  Very Happy

    And in general, the situation in the Ukrainian direction for many years to come will require the presence of powerful forces capable of also conducting amphibious operations.
    More likely the situation with some remaining Nazi terror groups in the south-western regions of Russia will require some ATO-capable troops.

    They should put the Zubr hovercraft back into production. Now that the M70FRU2 turbine is available for it there is no excuse really.
    The BAS-200 helicopter drone should also be put into production to replace the Camcopter S-100 imported from Austria.

    Marine divisions will become more versatile and mobile. Now each battalion of “black berets” will have its own air assault company, and the division will have its own air assault battalion. In addition, the artillery units of the Marines will receive Tornado-G multiple launch rocket systems and Malva howitzers. The new Black Beret divisions should become multifunctional, capable of performing a wide range of tasks, including humanitarian and peacekeeping. Experts note that strengthening air assault units and artillery will increase the strike potential of the Marines.

    Power from the sea

    The development of the organizational structure of the newly formed marine divisions has been completed , sources in the Russian Ministry of Defense told Izvestia. The new Black Beret formations should become multifunctional, capable of performing various tasks, including humanitarian and peacekeeping. At the same time, a serious emphasis is placed on the Marines conducting assault operations.

    According to Izvestia’s interlocutors, the main force of the division will be the marine battalions. In addition to the Marine Corps companies, they will also include air assault companies. Their personnel will be trained in parachute landings, as well as landing from helicopters. Marine battalions will also have their own anti-tank units and mortar batteries. At the same time, at least one battalion will be a peacekeeping battalion. Its personnel will undergo special training.

    Izvestia’s interlocutors also said that three battalions of “black berets” are expected to be consolidated into a marine regiment. Depending on the location of the division, the number of regiments will vary. It is noteworthy that they will be as universal and self-sufficient as possible. Thus, in addition to marine battalions, they will include reconnaissance and landing companies. The personnel of such companies perform tasks similar to army special forces: they conduct reconnaissance deep in enemy territory, and are also trained in assault operations.

    In addition, the Marine regiments will be reinforced with artillery and batteries of Tornado-G multiple launch rocket systems.

    The Marine division itself will receive serious firepower. Its artillery will include unique Malva tracked howitzers, the publication’s interlocutors said.


    The Marine Corps is the first wave of landings, military expert Dmitry Boltenkov explained to Izvestia. “Members of air assault companies and battalions will be the first to enter the battle and break through the enemy’s defenses ,” he noted. — These are soldiers and officers specially trained in assault operations . And they know how to do it well. At the beginning of the Northern Military District, it turned out that only the Marine Corps had attack aircraft. Largely thanks to the “black berets” it was possible to carry out successful offensive operations in the south of the Northern Military District zone and liberate Mariupol. Therefore, new battalions and companies must strengthen the attacking potential of the formations.

    The Marine Corps needs to act quickly , military expert Alexey Leonkov told Izvestia. “Tornado-G MLRS systems and Malva howitzers on a wheeled chassis will ensure this ,” he explained. — “Tornado-G”, thanks to electronics, is faster than “Grad”, aiming at targets, which means they spend less time delivering a strike. Wheeled "Mallows" will allow maneuverable combat operations. They will be able to move into positions, strike, and then leave the dangerous area faster than units of tracked self-propelled guns. Of course, these guns must operate in a single fire circuit of the formation, with the support of reconnaissance and UAVs, which will look for targets for them.

    The expert recalled that the tactical technique “roaming artillery” is widely used during the Northern Defense Forces. “Operating in this manner, guns and MLRS must constantly move: fire several shots and change position,” he explained. - This helps to avoid losses. In modern combat, counter-battery warfare plays an important role, which is carried out using special counter-battery radars. She needs to counter the maneuver. Both systems are well suited for such combat operations.

    Impact capabilities

    The 122mm Tornado-G MLRS is well known among the troops. They are replacing the famous "Grads". The combat vehicle has equipment that allows you to accurately track the coordinates of the firing position and automatically calculate all the necessary data for firing. As a result, the MLRS crew quickly reacts to changes in the situation and can cover targets that have just appeared on the battlefield.

    "Malva" is the first Russian self-propelled artillery gun on a wheeled base. It received an automobile chassis from the Bryansk Automobile Plant, which provides the artillery system with high mobility. The 152 mm Malva gun was borrowed from the Msta-S tracked self-propelled gun.

    In November of this year, the head of the missile forces and artillery (RFA) of the Russian Armed Forces, Lieutenant General Dmitry Klimenko, said that the Malva were already undergoing experimental combat operation in the Northern Military District zone.

    Strengthening the Marines

    In less than two years, the Marines gained unique experience in participating in both offensive and defensive operations. The Marines are credited with a successful landing in the Berdyansk area, the liberation of Mariupol, and participation in repelling an enemy counteroffensive in 2023.

    Last December, the Russian military department announced the formation of five marine divisions based on existing brigades. These formations are part of the coastal forces of the Russian Navy.

    “Black Berets” have been strengthening for several years now. A few years ago they received reconnaissance and tank battalions. Armored vehicles made it possible to conduct fairly large-scale combat operations, increasing their firepower and maneuverability.

    Earlier, Izvestia wrote that special divisions of river assault boats would appear as part of the newly created marine divisions of the Russian Armed Forces. The main task of these units will be the fight against enemy boats, landing troops, and fire suppression of the enemy in coastal sea areas.
