    Shoigu announced the formation of 12 military units and divisions in the Western Military District against the backdrop of the intention of Sweden and Finland to join NATO

    According to the head of the defense department, this year it is planned to supply more than two thousand units of modern weapons and military equipment to the units of the Western Military District.

    Tension continues to grow in the area of ​​responsibility of the Western Military District. The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is taking measures of adequate countermeasures. This was stated by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu at the Board of the Russian Defense Ministry.

    “Under these conditions, we are actively improving the combat composition of the troops. By the end of the year, 12 military units and divisions will be formed in the Western Military District,” he said.

    He also added that the organizational measures are synchronized with the supply of modern weapons and military equipment to the Russian troops. It is expected that this year the ZVO will receive more than two thousand units of such samples.

    In addition, Sergei Shoigu said that NATO is currently conducting a series of exercises "Defender of Europe" with the participation of up to forty thousand military personnel from thirty countries of the alliance. The main feature of the maneuvers is the transfer of a full-fledged division from the USA to the European continent.

    Apparently a new Russian Special Purpose (Spetsnaz) brigade was or is being formed to use UAV's to track down and destroy the Western artillery systems being given to Ukraine. Makes you wonder if there are not advanced UAV's coming out of Iran to be used in the SMO. The two that are rumored are a long range system that carries 4 AGM's or 8 bomblets and a suicide or kamikaze drone for wave attacks. Not definite yet of the accuracy here but will continue to search.

    There aren't any drones coming from Iran. It turned out to be civil airline spare parts.

    US backtracks on claims Russia is buying Iranian drones.

    Russia has a range of medium sized drones that can carry ATGMs and custom designed reduced size munitions of a range of new types already displayed at airshows and arms shows... why would they need Iranian drones...

    Having special forces units trained and equipped especially for hunting down specific targets will be very useful... whether it is artillery or weapons or drugs being transported in peace time or during war this new unit will be very interesting and will likely get a range of different drone types like HALE or MALE drones.

    In addition to ATGMs having various munitions and weapons would be useful.

    The orcs have had artillery vehicles on the front line for a while apparently, including the new German guns but they are suffering from, it seems they want better drone resources because those Turkish drones do a good job but not against modern air defences, so the targets they are hitting are bridges and jails and market squares... fixed locations of known coordinates because they have no means of finding targets for themselves...
