    Putin submits protocol on drone use at Russia’s military base in Kyrgyzstan to parliament


    The document is to eliminate discrepancies between Russian and Kyrgyz laws on the use of unmanned aerial aircraft

    MOSCOW, December 26. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has submitted a protocol to the State Duma (the lower house of parliament), which will make it possible to deploy units of unmanned aerial vehicles to the Russian military base in Kyrgyzstan. The document has been included into the State Duma’s digital database.

    "The protocol adds terms concerning unmanned aerial systems and unmanned aerial vehicles to the relevant agreement, eliminates any discrepancies between Russian and Kyrgyz laws on the use of unmanned aerial aircraft, and lays down rules for arranging the flights of Russian unmanned aerial vehicles and aircraft in Kyrgyzstan’s airspace," an explanatory note said. In particular, once the protocol enters into force, Moscow will have a chance "to deploy unmanned aerial vehicles to the Russian military base and start using them."

    In addition, the document points out that a joint inventory, which was conducted when Russia was provided with a temporary right to use the military base’s land, found that the actual size of the land was inconsistent with that enshrined in a bilateral agreement, exceeding it by 58.32 hectares. In this regard, the protocol "sets a new (higher) annual rent for Russia’s use of the land and a segment of the local water area, which will amount to $4,794,095." The Russian Defense Ministry will use the funds it receives from the federal budget every year to pay the rent.

    The protocol also says that if Russia shoulders the cost of renewing the artificial runway pavement at the Kant airfield, which Bishkek handed over to Moscow for temporary use, then the property right on those permanent improvements will belong to Russia, but if the agreement is terminated, it will be transferred to Kyrgyzstan.

    Latest drones to arrive for Russia’s air base in Kyrgyzstan by year-end


    On February 18, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law on ratifying a protocol on amendments to the agreement between Russia and Kyrgyzstan on Russia’s integrated military base that will make it possible to deploy a squad of unmanned aerial vehicles at the base

    MOSCOW, June 22. /TASS/. Two Orlan-10 multi-purpose drones will arrive for Russia’s Kant air base in Kyrgyzstan by the end of 2020, the press office of the Central Military District reported on Monday.

    Russia’s Central Military District Commander Colonel-General Alexander Lapin announced on February 27 that a squad of short- and medium-range unmanned aerial vehicles had been set up at the Kant air base in Kyrgyzstan.

    "Two Orlan-10 multi-purpose drones will arrive before the end of 2020 to further arm the drone squad. Their employment will raise the efficiency of … army and attack aviation in conducting combat operations and joint drills," the press office said in a statement.

    On February 18, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law on ratifying a protocol on amendments to the agreement between Russia and Kyrgyzstan on Russia’s integrated military base that will make it possible to deploy a squad of unmanned aerial vehicles at the base. The agreement was ratified by Kyrgyzstan’s parliament on June 12.

    Russia’s integrated Kant airbase is an air component of the CSTO (Collective Security Treaty Organization) Rapid Reaction Force and accomplishes the missions of providing security on the territory and in the airspace of the CSTO member states, including Kyrgyzstan. The Kant airbase operates Su-25 attack aircraft and Mi-8 helicopters.

    Russia’s Central Military District is based on the territory of the Volga, Urals and Siberian integrated federal districts and 29 Russian regions. Structurally, the Central Military District also includes some overseas facilities: the 201st military base in Tajikistan, the Kant integrated military base in Kyrgyzstan and units stationed on the territory of Kazakhstan.

    Anti-aircraft gunners of the Russian military base in Tajikistan received the latest "Verba"MANPADS.


    Air defense units of the Russian military base in Tajikistan received 20 modern Verba man-portable air defense systems.


    The Verba anti-aircraft system is designed to defeat cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles on oncoming and catch-up courses. It is capable of hitting low-emitting targets of a simulated enemy under the influence of false thermal interference at an altitude of 10 to 4.5 thousand meters and at a range of 500 to 6.5 thousand meters. An automated control system allows you to find an air target, determine its characteristics, and distribute targets between anti-aircraft gunners and fire weapons, taking into account their location.


    The 201st military base stationed in Tajikistan is Russia's largest military facility outside of its borders. It is located in two cities — Dushanbe and Bokhtar. It consists of motorized rifle, tank, artillery, reconnaissance units, air defense units, NBC protection and communications.

    The article said:

    So there are short and medium range squads already set up there since the end of feb 2020, and that they are sending two further Orlan-10 drones by the end of the year to boost numbers.

    Orlan-10 drones help artillery troops deliver precision strikes on enemy in Siberia drills

    "Two Orlan-10 multi-purpose drones will arrive before the end of 2020 to further arm the drone squad.

    The Orlan-10 drones being used to spot targets for artillery and presumably determine if follow up strikes are needed.

    It doens't say what drones the units already have, but I suspect they already have Orlan-10 drones and this is just a couple more to boost numbers.

    17 upgraded BMP-2Ms will be engaged in the joint drills of Russia, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan that will run at the Kharb-Maidon training ground 20 km from the Afghan border on August 5-10

    YEKATERINBURG, August 3. /TASS/. Upgraded BMP-2M infantry fighting vehicles that will take part in the upcoming drills of three countries on the border with Afghanistan arrived for Russia’s military base in Tajikistan, the press office of the Central Military District reported on Tuesday.

    "A batch of 17 upgraded BMP-2M infantry fighting vehicles has arrived for the 201st Russian military base stationed in Tajikistan. The new combat vehicles will replace the outdated hardware of motor rifle units," the press office said in a statement.

    The BMP-2Ms will be engaged in the joint drills of Russia, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan that will run at the Kharb-Maidon training ground 20 km from the Afghan border on August 5-10. The drills will involve 2,500 troops, including 1,800 personnel from Russia, and also about 500 items of armament and military hardware. The Russian military contingent in the drills will mostly comprise units of Russia’s 201st military base in Tajikistan.

    The BMP-2M features an automated fire control system enabling the commander and the gunner to operate as a single unit day and night. The combat vehicle is outfitted with panoramic sight and observation devices with the night vision capability. The new Akveduk radio station mounted on the BMP-2M is capable of operating steadily under enemy jamming. The BMP-2M is designated to deliver personnel to the frontline, boost troop mobility, armament and protection.

    Russia redeploys combat helicopters to Tajikistan for drills on Afghan border

    During the main phase of the joint exercise, the army aviation crews will land a tactical assault force and provide air support for the advancing troops in the course of eliminating an outlawed armed gang

    YEKATERINBURG, August 3. /TASS/. Russian Mi-8 military transport helicopters and Mi-24 assault gunships have redeployed from the Novosibirsk Region in Western Siberia to the Gissar airfield in Tajikistan for trilateral drills at the Kharb-Maidon training ground 20 km from the Afghan border, the press office of Russia’s Central Military District reported on Tuesday.

    "The four combat helicopters have been airlifted from Russia by an An-124-100 Ruslan heavy transport plane. During the main phase of the joint exercise, the army aviation crews will land a tactical assault force and provide air support for the advancing troops in the course of eliminating an outlawed armed gang," the press office said in a statement.

    The helicopters were partially disassembled before their transportation. Upon the gunships’ arrival at the destination airfield, the ground personnel assembled the helicopters while the pilots made test flights, the statement says.

    The joint drills of Russia, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan will run at the Kharb-Maidon training ground on August 5-10.

    Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu earlier said at a conference of the defense ministers from the member states of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Dushanbe that the three countries would practice eliminating outlawed armed gangs, conducting reconnaissance and protecting facilities during the drills.

    Overall, the drills will involve 2,500 troops, including 1,800 personnel from Russia, and also about 500 items of armament and military hardware. The Russian military contingent in the drills will mostly comprise units of Russia’s 201st military base in Tajikistan.

    the exercise is the redeployment (of forces of Central District), it is done every year or every two years, I'm not sure, but it has already been done several times.

    The Tajikistan base has its own air component (previously called the 303rd separate helicopter squadron, now it is not clear), at least 4 Mi-24P, 2 Mi-8MTB-5 and one old Mi-8 for MEDEVAC as support for the 201st brigade.

    A separate tank battalion of the 201st military base in Tajikistan will receive modern tanks that will replace the earlier modifications currently in service. In total, the base will receive 30 new modern machines, delivery will be made by the end of the year. True, there is no information about what kind of tanks we are talking about, but with a high probability it will be T-72B3M, since the base is armed with T-72.

    Screen it up: Armor for 201st base combat vehicles What tasks in Tajikistan will the updated technology solve?


    Russian combat vehicles of the 201st military base located in Tajikistan will receive additional protection kits. The armored personnel carriers BTR-82A and BMP-2M will be covered with lattice screens and armor plates . This will make them less vulnerable to enemy fire. Experts note that the transport of Russian motorized riflemen in the critical region will be protected not only from machine guns, but even from anti-tank missiles.

    Sources in the military department told Izvestia that a fundamental decision was made to increase the combat capabilities of the armored vehicles of the 201st Russian military base in Tajikistan.In particular, the issue of equipping armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles with additional protective elements is being considered.

    The kit consists of two types of protection. The first one is the armor plates, which cover the critical places of the vehicle. The second component is lattice screens, which are mounted along the perimeter of the case. . The mass of such a body kit is about a ton. The equipment is attached to the vehicle by the crew, which takes approximately one hour.

    Armor plates should protect the crew of the combat vehicle and the landing force from shrapnel and bullets of 7.62 mm and 12.6 mm caliber at distances from 400 m . This is especially critical for armored personnel carriers: their protection was initially so weak that the side of the car in some was pierced by shots from a 7.62 mm machine gun.
    BMP-2M infantry fighting vehicle during a dynamic demonstration within the framework of the International Army Games-2021 at the Alabino training ground.

    The lattice body kit is designed to protect the vehicle from rocket-propelled grenades and anti-tank missiles. It is not one hundred percent - the probability of triggering is about 50 to 50 and depends on the location of the hit. If the warhead crashes between the grating bars, the ammunition will get stuck and will not work. There is also an option that when a grenade collides with a grate, the cumulative jet will be deformed, and its effect will be less destructive.

    Trainings are held in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan

    The armored vehicles in service with the Russian army were developed mainly during the Cold War based on the means of destruction that could be used in a global conflict, military expert Alexei Khlopotov told Izvestia. However, in conditions of local hostilities, light weapons come first.

    “ In Tajikistan, there remains the threat of the penetration of various gangs, which are armed with mainly light anti-tank weapons: grenade launchers, possibly anti-tank missile systems,” explained Aleksey Khlopotov. - Against these funds, it is necessary to strengthen the protection of our equipment. For a long time, special kits in the form of lattice screens have been developed that work very effectively against RPGs. The point is that, falling into the lattice plates, made not of simple metal, but of solid armored steel, the head of the anti-tank grenade is destroyed - the cumulative funnel itself, which greatly reduces the effectiveness of detonation.As a rule, such screens save the tank, as well as infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers. If the vehicles in Tajikistan are equipped with such protective systems, their survivability and the safety of the crew will significantly increase. These measures are necessary because the threat is real and it will only grow over time.

    Basic versions of armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles are well protected in frontal projection in accordance with the technical specifications of the Ministry of Defense, military expert Viktor Murakhovsky told Izvestia.

    - From this side, protection is provided against almost all small arms of any caliber, including including large-caliber machine guns, - he explained. “But their side projections are more vulnerable to damage from large calibers. The equipment of this generation, of course, must be equipped with additional protection kits, regardless of where it is deployed.
    Unveiled threat: Russia to conduct a series of exercises on the Afghan border.

    What challenges will the armed forces of the Russian Federation, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan face?

    In recent months, against the backdrop of the rapidly changing situation in Afghanistan, a series of major joint military exercises have been held in the Central Asian region. The maneuvers take place on the territory of Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. The culmination of joint training of troops should be the anti-terrorist exercise of the SCO countries "Peace Mission - 2021". It will take place at the Donguz training ground in the Orenburg region from 11 to 25 September.

    In parts of the 201st Russian military base, combat training is ongoing. On September 9, the press service of the Central Military District announced the completion of the maneuvers, during which they practiced repelling the attack of the militants. According to the scenario, a group of a mock enemy in cars tried to break into the territory of a military unit through a checkpoint. An anti-terror group on armored personnel carriers BTR-82A quickly arrived at the scene of the clash, blocked and defeated the "militants".
    Rearmament on the ground

    Until the mid-2010s, the Russian military base (RVB) in Tajikistan was content with equipment left over from the Soviet 201st motorized rifle division. For a long time, its material part has hardly been updated. Then the situation began to change rapidly.

    Since 2015, motorized rifle units have been re-equipped with new BTR-82A armored personnel carriers with increased firepower. Since 2018, the upgraded BMP-2M has also been delivered here. They differ from the basic model in improved sight and observation devices, as well as a modern radio station R-168 "Aqueduct".

    The artillery grouping of the base was reinforced with long-range MLRS "Uragan" of 220 mm caliber. Since it must be ready for action in mountainous terrain, it also includes lightweight equipment - 122 mm self-propelled artillery mounts "Gvozdika", as well as anti-aircraft guns ZU-23, mounted on the basis of armored trucks "Ural".

    The air defense of the base was reinforced with the S-300PS anti-aircraft missile system. To combat small drones and other air targets, the delivery of the most modern portable systems "Verba" has begun at the RVB.

    Receives 201st base and new infantry weapons. Its units are re-equipping the most modern version of the Kalashnikov AK-12 assault rifle, powerful 12.7 mm ASVK-M sniper rifles, Yarygin pistols and advanced rocket-propelled flamethrowers.

    In 2015, a Russian air group was recreated in Tajikistan. A mixed helicopter squadron was formed at the Gissar airfield located not far from Dushanbe. It includes shock Mi-24P and military transport Mi-8MTV5-1.

    The base in Tajikistan is one of the few formations that have their own drone battalion. Small "Orlan-10", as well as light "Eleron-3" and "Tachyon" are used to monitor border areas and adjust artillery fire.
