    Interesting that in post number 326 above the middle photo with the vehicles in a row it appears to be the first from the left with a HMG, which is presumably the command vehicle, and then four missile armed vehicles... but the first and last seem to be Konkurs missiles, while the two middle missiles are Kornet.

    Very sensible, because not every target will require a Kornet missile in terms of penetration power or range. The Konkurs can manage about 800mm of penetration, out to about 4.5km of range, which would be quite enough for dealing with enemy positions like HMGs or snipers or even just light armoured vehicles. The Kornets could be used against ground targets out to 8.5km or even helicopters if they wanted to...

    Airborne to receive only 2,500 conscripts this draft as compared to 6,000 in the last draft.

    "The cherished path to the vest and blue beret will be closed to some recruits due to the reduced recruitment of young soldiers in the Airborne Forces. Only the best of the best recruits will go there.

    Of course, there is no talk of a regular sequestration in the Airborne Forces. The number of Russian winged infantry will remain within 45 thousand people. However, in recent years, in connection with the increased tasks of the Airborne Forces and the arrival of high-tech military equipment in their brigades and divisions, the generals have stepped up the recruitment of contract servicemen. This is precisely what explains the lowering of the landing call bar.

    According to the head of the organizational and mobilization department of the headquarters of the Airborne Forces Dmitry Satarov, the demand for conscripts this fall and winter will be limited to 2.5 thousand guys. For comparison, six months ago this figure was 6 thousand recruits. But conscripts from 64 regions of Russia will join all formations and units of the Russian winged infantry, with the exception of the 31st separate airborne assault brigade in Ulyanovsk. For several years now this connection has been completed exclusively by professionals."

    "Stayer" was developed in the framework of the ROC "Juncker-On" specialists of JSC "Polyot" Ivanovo parachute plant technodynamics. The creators of the system were awarded departmental awards "for strengthening the combat community".

    "The development of the Steyer was carried out on an initiative basis in the interests of the Ministry of defense. The system has no analogues on the Russian market, has unique capabilities and has managed to prove its reliability during the exercises. To date, the Stayer has been put into service and the first systems have already been sent to the troops, "commented Igor Nasenkov, General Director of Technodinamika holding.

    Rotary-winged infantry: the airborne forces began to create battalions of a new type

    The Ministry of Defense decided to form airborne units as part of the Airborne Forces. Starting next year, such battalions will begin to be created in all brigades and divisions. If necessary, they will be able to quickly arrive at their destination by helicopter. The new type of battalions will further increase the mobility of the Airborne Forces and will finally transform them into rapid reaction forces. Currently, the Airborne Forces have experimental airmobile battalions only in the 31st brigade, which is deployed in Ulyanovsk.
    Where the armored train won't rush

    The development of the organizational and staff structure of the new type battalions, as well as other guidance documents, will be completed by the end of the year, Izvestia sources in the military department told. And from next year, new divisions will begin to form. According to the plans of the Ministry of Defense, an airborne battalion will appear in each airborne assault brigade. One or two such battalions will be created in each airborne and airborne assault divisions.

    Airmobile units, in contrast to the actual airborne troops, are parachuted by helicopters. At the same time, they can land on any terrain. Depending on the conditions, the fighters will jump out of the landed car, descend on cables, and, if necessary, parachute from a height. This allows, during the operation, to quickly concentrate forces in the desired direction, and in places where ground equipment will not reach. In addition, the helicopter fleet can be located directly next to the military camp of the paratroopers.

    “The formation of units on helicopters will expand the possibilities for their use,” Colonel Valery Yuryev, chairman of the Union of Russian Paratroopers, explained to Izvestia. - Depending on the situation, the commander will make a decision: to land by parachute or helicopter. In fact, paratroopers can quickly arrive and complete missions in any region on any terrain - in the mountains, in forests, in deserts, anywhere. If necessary, we will emerge from the ground and destroy the enemy.

    The first experiments on the use of airmobile forces took place during the Center-2018 exercises. The unit landed behind enemy lines and played a large role in the success of the operation. In the future, this component was involved in all major maneuvers with the participation of the Airborne Forces. The experience of using airmobile units was considered successful. The only thing that delayed the transition to airmobile units was the speed of helicopter construction.

    Last year, the head of the Duma Defense Committee and former commander of the Airborne Forces, Vladimir Shamanov, said in an interview with Izvestia that in the coming years "we will move on to the massive saturation of our troops with modern multipurpose and attack helicopters."

    In turn, the current commander of the Airborne Forces, Colonel-General Andrei Serdyukov, emphasized in an interview with Izvestia that "airborne assault formations of a new type are capable of independently operating in the enemy's rear in cooperation with military units of army aviation."

    Rapid response reform

    A large-scale reform of the Russian Airborne Forces began in 2019. It assumes a fundamentally new approach to their use. In Soviet times, the military leadership believed that the blue berets would be used in massive amphibious operations in the European theater of operations. It was assumed that the airborne divisions (VDD) would be parachuted into the enemy's rear in full force. These formations did not have heavy weapons and equipment.

    After 1991, only four airborne divisions remained in the Armed Forces, the purpose and use of which could not be decided for a long time. In local conflicts, paratroopers were used simply as well-trained infantry. Several years ago, airborne assault brigades began to be revived as part of the Airborne Forces. These units are equipped with tanks, artillery and drones.

    After the completion of the reform, the Airborne Forces should become the backbone of the rapid reaction force. If necessary, they will be able to quickly arrive in any region of the world and solve military and military-political tasks there or conduct humanitarian operations. Therefore, the paratroopers are equipped with everything necessary so that they are able to operate autonomously for a long time, far from their homeland and without the support of other troops. The paratrooper commander will have at hand a wide variety of weapons, vehicles for all occasions, modern control and communications systems, and supplies of material and technical means.

    Earlier, Izvestia reported that the Ministry of Defense had decided to start purchasing Sprut-SDM1 self-propelled artillery mounts. In terms of firepower, the vehicles are not inferior to tanks, while they are able to overcome water obstacles and parachute. Airborne operations, in the formations of which they will enter, will be much more efficient, experts said. In addition, according to experts, such a technique is indispensable in areas where there are many water obstacles.

    "As for the Airborne Troops. Today, they have reached a new qualitative level of rapid response to threats to the country's military security, " Sergei Shoigu said.

    As part of the build-up of the combat capabilities of the troops, this year it is planned to complete the deployment of the third amphibious assault regiment of the 76th Division in Pskov, and by the end of the year to re-form the 56th amphibious assault brigade into the 56th amphibious assault regiment with a permanent base in Feodosia.

    Deliveries of modern weapons and military equipment continue, the share of which has reached almost 72%.

    In February, the troops received the tenth battalion set of modernized combat vehicles of the landing force. Two more will be delivered by the end of the year.

    The state tests of the protected special purpose vehicle "Typhoon-Airborne" have been completed.

    The staffing of the military personnel under the contract is 72% of the total number.

    Since the beginning of the year, more than 40 thousand parachute jumps have been made, 44 units of weapons and military equipment have been landed.

    Russia developing latest multi-purpose parachute platform for paratroopers

    It will feature enhanced lifting capacity of up to 18 tonnes

    MOSCOW, April 28. /TASS/. The latest multi-purpose parachute platform with enhanced lifting capacity is being developed for Russian paratroopers, Chief of the Airborne Force Command’s Airborne Training Department Colonel Vladimir Kvash told the Defense Ministry’s newspaper Krasnaya Zvezda on Wednesday.

    "As the Airborne Force is being rearmed with new types of wheeled combat hardware, a standardized multi-purpose parachute platform UMPP is being developed for parachuting military equipment and cargoes with a flight weight of up to 18 tonnes," the colonel said.

    Simultaneously, work is underway to develop controlled cargo parachute systems of various lifting capacity for parachuting cargoes to the designed area with high accuracy, he added.

    The Russian Airborne Force is currently accepting for service the PGS-1500 parachute cargo system for parachuting cargoes with a flying weight of up to 1,500 kg from il-76 military transport planes, he said.

    The latest systems for parachuting the armor also continue arriving for the Russian paratroopers, the colonel said.

    "This year, there are plans to outfit two more parachute battalions operating BMD-4M combat vehicles with new parachute platforms in the Airborne Force," he said.

    Technodinamika presented the latest developments at the Airborne Forces Day. 

    Technodinamika Holding of Rostec State Corporation showed more than 70 developments and a jump with a record-breaking flag at the military sports festival dedicated to the Day of the Russian Airborne Troops. The company's paratrooper vehicles, melee weapons and special chemicals were displayed in a static display that demonstrates the capabilities of elite Russian troops. In addition, guests of the event, which took place at the Alabino training ground in the Moscow region, were able to see special – purpose parachute systems in action-the demonstration landing was one of the most striking parts of the holiday.

    The demonstration of the combat capabilities of the Airborne Troops units and subunits included the landing of a special purpose group, during which the Steyer parachute systems demonstrated their advantages. Airborne soldiers are already familiar with these systems – in April 2020, they were the first in the world to make a group jump from the lower limit of the stratosphere (10,000 m) in the Far North. This happened during an exercise that took place on Franz Josef Land.

    For high-altitude landing, another system is also designed, shown on the bottom of the Airborne Forces - "Dalnolet". It allows you to jump at distances of up to 60 km from the point of departure of the aircraft with a fair wind, which allows you to perform the most difficult tasks, including behind enemy lines.

    As part of the demonstration program, an artillery crew was also landed. One fighter on the Tandem-400 parachute system with universal cargo strapping delivered an 82-mm mortar to the destination, the other on a similar parachute-a gunner.

    All these parachute systems could also be seen in the static display that unfolded at the Alabino training ground. In addition, among the means of landing personnel, a line of "Cadets" was presented, including the latest "Kadet-100" with a round dome, which is currently being tested, and "Kadet-100D", which is just being prepared for testing, as well as a line of special-purpose parachute systems for high-altitude landing, a parachute harness that allows you to land service dogs, an electronic parachute belaying device and an insurance system.

    Special attention was drawn to the part of the exhibition where cargo parachute systems were presented. So, for the first time, the public was shown the system developed within the framework of the ROC "Parachute". The unified platform is capable of delivering vehicles weighing up to 18 tons to their destination. This" weight category "includes, for example, the Typhoon-Airborne armored car. It was presented in the exhibition together with the parachute system. Preliminary tests of its prototypes, including joint flight experiments, are scheduled to be completed in December 2021.

    Another novelty presented at the exhibition is the cargo controlled parachute system "Horizontal-4000". It has a payload capacity of up to four tons and is currently undergoing preliminary testing.

    The automated parachute cargo delivery system, which managed to perform well during the tests, also became a notable exhibit. It consists of a parachute system itself, which includes a braking parachute and a wing-type controlled dome, as well as a cargo platform and an automatic control system that allows for several modes of operation. The first of them is automatic using GLONASS/GPS signals. In this case, the descent of the landing cargo is completely controllable, and the accuracy of pointing and landing at a given point is 100 m. The system can also operate in the "follow me" mode, as well as manually, when the control is carried out by the operator on the radio command line.

    "Our country's airborne training system is the most advanced and efficient in the world. You will not see such airborne complexes anywhere, which are built and equipped in almost every military unit of the Airborne Forces" – the commander
    of the Airborne Forces, Colonel-General Andrey Serdyukov commented. – "In terms of their design features and characteristics, Russian parachute systems are superior to foreign parachutes. The main advantages of Russian systems in comparison with foreign analogues are controllability, duplication of the main parachute opening with an insurance device, and the possibility of ejection at an increased speed of the aircraft. I would like to note that the existing parachute systems fully meet modern requirements for the use of Airborne troops."

    In addition to the developments of the leading enterprises of the Technodinamiki parachute division (Ivanovo Parachute Plant "Polet", Research Institute of Parachute Engineering, Solnechnogorsk Mechanical Plant and MKPK "Universal"), which can also be seen in the Airborne Forces ' exposition at the Army International Forum, special chemical products were presented in Alabino. In particular, modules for shooting firebombs that create a smoke screen on the battlefield. Melee weapons also attracted attention. For example, the RPG-26 rocket-propelled anti-tank grenade with a single-use grenade launcher developed by NPO Basalt (part of JSC RPC Techmash). The product affects unarmored and armored vehicles, including tanks, suppresses firing points, manpower in wood-earth shelters and field-type shelters, buildings and structures made of brick and reinforced concrete.

    Another exhibit is the RSHG-2 rocket-propelled assault grenade, designed to suppress manpower in open areas, in field shelters, buildings and structures of various types, as well as defeat lightly armored and unarmored vehicles. The warhead of the grenade has a high high-explosive effect.

    The final chord of the holiday was demonstration jumps with flags. First, the paratroopers unfurled the banners of the Rostec State Corporation with an area of 375 square meters in the sky. m and Technodinamika Holding with an area of 96 square meters, after which a 1000-meter Airborne Forces flag appeared over the training ground. Thus, the paratroopers of Aerograd Kolomna repeated the unique landing organized by Technodinamika exactly one year ago for the Day of the Airborne Troops. This achievement is listed in the Russian Book of Records as the country's largest flag unfurled in the sky by a skydiver.

    "The success of a military operation has many components. A brilliant command strategy, strength and bravery of fighters should be supported by modern and high-quality equipment. Including weapons and reliable parachute systems. Even a small pyropatron is important, which will create a smoke screen and hide the equipment from the enemy. I want to wish that the Airborne Forces always have all the components of success at their disposal! Technodinamika, being a leading Russian developer and manufacturer of parachute systems and a competence center in the field of ammunition and special chemicals, will do everything possible to ensure that the elite of the Russian army always has the best technical solutions and developments. Happy holidays! Happy Airborne Forces Day! " – Igor Nasenkov, General Director of Technodinamika Holding sayd.

    The Pskov Airborne Division was reinforced with another airborne assault regiment

    Moscow. September 21. INTERFAX - The third airborne assault regiment has been formed in the Pskov Division of the Airborne Troops (Airborne Forces), the Russian Defense Ministry reported on Tuesday.
    "From December 1, 2018, the regiment was restored as part of the Pskov Guards Airborne Assault Unit, and from September 1, 2021, it was fully formed to a full staff," the military department said in a statement.
    According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the commander of the Airborne Forces, Andrei Serdyukov, has arrived in the Pskov Airborne Assault Division, where he will hold events for the commissioning of the fully formed 237th Guards Airborne Assault Torun Red Banner Regiment.
    This is the third airborne assault regiment in the division, the military said.
    "I wish you that, having passed all the necessary training, the regiment next year will take advanced positions in the Airborne troops. You will have to master new equipment and weapons, carry out professional training of each serviceman and achieve high results, " Serdyukov told the personnel of the new regiment.
    Earlier, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported on the strengthening of the Pskov division with a tank battle, which is equipped with modernized T-72B3 tanks.
    The commander of the Airborne Troops reported that in 2018, the number of airborne troops was increased.
    The Airborne Forces are a branch of the Armed Forces, which is a means of the Supreme High Command. Airborne forces are designed to cover the enemy by air and perform tasks in his rear to disrupt the control of troops, capture and destroy ground elements of high-precision weapons, disrupt the deployment and deployment of reserves, disrupt the work of the rear and communications.

    NOTE: Interesting time line here, 34 months to fully form an Air Assault regiment. Too many people don't appreciate the work this would entail ... Rome indeed was not built in a day.
