    Just look at the "invasion of Afghanistan"... landing vehicles at an airport and then taking vehicles to attack the local government forces...

    In Georgia they landed the VDV via naval forces... that is part of the flexibility of the VDV... they might be landed by sea, or by air... or as in the case of later in the conflict in Afghanistan they might be stationed in country and issued with heavier vehicles to operate on.

    I did some google-fu and looks like you are right

    Self-propelled gun "Sprut-SD" will surpass the T-90


    http://www.arms-expo.ru/news/novye_razrabotki/v_2015_godu_dlya_vdv_poyavitsya_modernizirovannaya_samokhodka_sprut_sd/

    An updated version of the self-propelled anti-tank guns "Sprut-SD" should appear before the end of the year. This was announced by first Vice-President of concern "tractor plants" Albert Bakov.

    - We're in full swing modernization "Sprut-SD". I'm sure this year we finish this work, - quotes the group's representative TASS.

    Bakov said that the upgraded machine will change the level of protection and mobility. In addition, the fire control system will have guns better than the T-90.

    Thousands of Paratroopers, Quads Land During Airborne Drills in West Russia

    The joint military drill lasted four days and ended Friday night.

    During a joint military drill of the Russian Airborne Troops (VDV) which took place in Pskov Region, 2,000 military personnel landed with all-terrain vehicles; the event lasted four days and ended Friday night.

    More than 20 transport aircraft dropped around 2,000 paratroopers with quads and armored vehicles within a 30-minute period. Paratroopers from the Tula-based VDV formation were deployed at the training facilities of their Pskov counterparts to perform a deep airborne assault scenario. Soldiers were taught the kind of defensive tactics that are used when helicopter support isn’t provided for the first time. Command and control were conducted with the help of the brand-new digital telecommunication system Andromeda D.

    There are reports that the military plans to acquire about approximately 400 quads for the reconnaissance units of the VDV. These Russian-made military quads, which are used by the airborne troops, were revealed to the public first during the November 2014 joint Russian-Serbian anti-terrorist drills “SREM-2014”. Quads were also present during the Collective Security Treaty Organization military drills, held May 2015 in Tajikistan.

    Military police, currently under formation in the Russian armed forces, also plan to utilize all-terrain vehicles. They will be in use at the Arctic military bases that Russia is building or reconstructing.

    Also sth interesting:

    Russian Airborne Forces to get 80 newest assault vehicles by yearend — commander


    Airborne Forces to get 6 tank companies by yearend

    The commander also said the forces will get 6 tank companies by the end of 2015.

    "We plan to form 6 tank companies by the end of the year," he said.

    Shamanov previously said that all Airborne Forces' formations would get tank battalions.

    According to the military official, the Russian Airborne Forces have received additional resources for the research and development work on a wheeled vehicle with a combat module for special units. It has been reported that the Airborne Troops are working on a modular wheeled armoured vehicle jointly with the KamAZ truck manufacturer.

    So new wheeled tank for VDV?? VDV will have tank battalions as US Airborne troops

    What tanks does the US Airborne have?

    BTW the wheeled vehicle with a combat module (which could just be a BMP-3M turret BTW and not necessarily a tank turret), is likely a modification of either Boomerang or Typhoon.

    Russian Defense Ministry to build up strength of airborne assault divisions

    Airborne troops commander Colonel-General Vladimir Shamanov unveiled immediate plans for arming airborne assault divisions with reconnaissance and attack drones

    MOSCOW, July 30. /TASS/. Russia’s airborne forces are to build up the strength of airborne assault divisions to complement them with a third regiment, airborne troops commander Colonel-General Vladimir Shamanov told the media on Thursday.

    Earlier, Shamanov said that a rapid reaction force would be created on the basis of airborne troops. According to a source in the General Staff, the paratroops’ strength will grow noticeably from 45,000 men to 60,000. The source also mentioned plans for restoring the 104th airborne assault division and create a new airborne assault brigade.

    "At the moment discussions with the General Staff are in progress. The structure of airborne assault divisions will be expanded and complemented with a third regiment," Shamanov said.

    He unveiled immediate plans for arming airborne assault divisions with reconnaissance and attack drones.

    "The units armed with unmanned aircraft are being formed. There are such units in the 83rd brigade in Ussuriysk and the 98th division in Ivanovo already. In several years’ time we plan to have such units in each division, regiment and brigade," Shamanov said.

    Also, the airborne troops are to form their own research and development group of five platoons for designing a flying airborne assault combat vehicle.

    "The idea of creating a research and development unit on the basis of the Ryazan Paratroop Academy has not materialized yet. We took the issue to the chief of the Armed Forces’ General Staff just recently. There is the understanding that there must be such a research and development group," Shamanov said.

    Paratroop units will soon be armed with a new ORSIS 7.62 mm sniper rifle. Its government certification tests are to be completed this year.

    "Its purchases are not on the agenda yet. We are prepared to have it for testing in the field. Our men and special task brigades were invited to check its combat parameters at different stages. Its readiness is positive by and large," Shamanov said.

    Two Russian airborne units to take part in CSTO rapid reaction force drills for first time

    The CSTO rapid reaction force will practise a joint operation to localize an armed conflict to restore the territorial integrity and protect the constitutional order of a simulated member state

    MOSCOW, August 19. /TASS/. Two Russian airborne units will for the first time participate simultaneously in the Interaction-2015 military drills of the rapid reaction forces organized by the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) member states, Russian Airborne Force Commander, Col.-Gen. Vladimir Shamanov said on Wednesday.

    Since the CSTO rapid reaction force was established in 2009, "the drills will for the first time involve the simultaneous participation of about 1,000 paratroopers from two Airborne Force units stationed in Ivanovo and Ulyanovsk: the 98th Guards Airborne Division and the 31st Guards Separate Air Assault [Peacekeeping] Brigade," Shamanov said.

    Joint headquarters comprising over 100 officers have been established to exercise control of the maneuvers, he said.

    "The headquarters composition is multinational and includes representatives of all member states," the Russian Airborne Force commander said.

    During the exercises, the CSTO rapid reaction force will practise a joint operation to localize an armed conflict to restore the territorial integrity and protect the constitutional order of a simulated member state, missions to destroy irregular armed formations, accomplish assignments for eliminating the consequences of emergency situations and carrying out search and special measures, Shamanov said.

    CSTO Secretary General Nikolai Bordyuzha will take part in the active phase of the maneuvers on August 27-28.

    Russian Paratroopers Set to Hold Anti-Terror Drills in Egypt for First Time

    Russian paratroopers plan to hold anti-terrorist exercises for the first time in Egypt in October and November this year, the paratroopers’ press service said Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Cairo and Moscow agreed to increase military, trade, security and economic cooperation earlier this year after a visit by Russian President Vladimir Putin to Egypt in February.

    In June, the first Russian-Egyptian naval drills, codenamed the Friendship Bridge 2015, were held in the Mediterranean Sea.

    “The first joint anti-terrorist exercises are planned in Egypt in October-November. [The exercises] have been included in the international operations plan and organizational and financial issues are currently being concluded,” the press service said.

    In August, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said military ties between the two countries were aimed at strengthening Egypt’s defense capabilities, including its ability to deal with the threat of terrorism.
