    As said several times ,the operation of those unique vehicles represent in the today modern aerospace offense-defense dynamic a true strategic asset capable to offer an unilateral, unmatcheable, advantage to the defending side that increase exponentially at the grow of the density and efficiency of the IADs systems covered.

    In facts each hub of the domestic multi-layered IAD, even without taking into account the air force component, thanks to:


    - The ever growing range of engagements of its  unitary SAM elements.
    - The capability to engage contemporanepusly an immense amount of incoming attacking elements.
    - The capability to link and cross the sensor's data in an unitary picture to twart offensive jamming attempts and detect and insulate decoys of any kind.
    - The capability to employ very different EW systems to attack any ring of the offensive "kill chain".


    require from the attacking side a truly immense commitment in terms of amount of always heavier stand-off ammunitions , EW assets , and penetration aids to hope to achieve the saturation of a particular IAD' hub.

    When the IAD's command compute that an aero-space attack is so big to significantly surpass the saturation's threshold of an hub of the IAD, this segment do not waste any interceptor and instead its elements begin to cover and disperse.

    Here the role of division level masking system, such as  ТДА-3, become crucial: in facts it completely deprive the incoming salvo of any terminal homing possibility  (visual-IR-laser and radar) for several hours ,usually 5 or 6, trasforming the attacking missiles, gliders or UAV in WWII level precision bombs .

    When used in conjuction with strategic level GPS and NAVSTAR suppressing systems also big fixed targets can be rendered terribly resilient to the most titanic aerospace attack.

    The TDA-3 is creating smoke to disguise things. Your pics are showing NBC protection vehicles, the first looks like the KDUD.

    Don´t know how the KDUD (the green truck) works, but the brownish truck seems to be a cleaning vehicle like the UTM-80 with a remote controlled boom.

    Information from Hans Schmulke's posts.

    You're familiar with the concept of RAM coating, right? This thing gives you temporary RAM(and not just R) coating wherever, whenever, on whatever you'd like.

    https://twitter.com/gunner_schmulke/status/1386733327848194056
    On vehicles and structures you'd like to have camouflaged, like tank or, let's say, a bridge.

    They simply spray the appropriate parts with foam from the nozzles, which, depending on the foam, then either hardens or jellyfies.

    Persistence — hours, dozens of hours, sometimes days.

    https://twitter.com/gunner_schmulke/status/1386731860739362819

    It's a multi-purpose vehicle. It could be used for NBC, or it could be used to apply multi-spectral opaque camouflage. Here's what he said about the KDUD vehicle:
    Well, smokers are CBRN department. When it comes to Engineers, here's wunderwaffle of the week.

    The thing transports and mechanically deploys chemical multispectral smoke generators all over the area, and controls them minefield-style.

    More prep, better speed; same result.

    https://twitter.com/gunner_schmulke/status/1387045450201501706

    The 'decontamination' title is an over-simplification of what these vehicles are capable of. They could be used for NBC decontamination, but they can also be used to apply multi-spectral electromagnetically opaque obscurants.

    The military group in the Kaliningrad region is reinforced with two motorized rifle regiments (expanded version)

    Moscow. April 28. INTERFAX-Two new motorized rifle regiments have been created in the Kaliningrad region, it follows from the message of the Baltic Fleet of the Russian Federation.
    "In the city of Gusev, Kaliningrad region, the commander of the Baltic Fleet, Admiral Alexander Nosatov, presented the commanders of the newly formed motorized rifle regiments of the Army Corps of the Fleet with the historical banners of the 275th and 280th rifle regiments, with which the soldiers of the famous units went through the entire Great Patriotic War," the press service of the Baltic Fleet of the Russian Federation reported on Wednesday.
    Probably, we are talking about two new regiments of the motorized rifle division. The plans for its formation in the Kaliningrad region were previously reported by the Russian military.
    In December 2020, the commander of the Baltic Fleet said that the formation of a new motorized rifle division in the Kaliningrad region was a response to the build-up of NATO forces near the Russian borders.
    "First of all, this is due to the build - up of NATO troops in the immediate vicinity of the land borders of the Kaliningrad region, on the territory of which the main forces of the Baltic Fleet are stationed, "Nosatov said in an interview with the Russian Defense Ministry's Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper.
    "Today, one armored, several multinational battalion-tactical groups, as well as other strike units and units are drawn up to the borders of the Russian exclave. In response to this threat, the leadership of the Armed Forces is forced to take retaliatory measures. One of them was the formation of a full-fledged motorized rifle division, which became part of the Army Corps of the Baltic Fleet," the commander said.
    According to him, the new division includes motorized rifle, artillery and separate tank regiments.
    In recent years, Russia has strengthened its military infrastructure in the western direction, in particular, in the Kaliningrad region.
    In 2016, it became known that the 11th Army Corps was formed as part of the Baltic Fleet in the Kaliningrad Region.
    In May 2018, it was reported about the rearmament of the missile brigade in the city of Chernyakhovsk from Tochki-U to Iskander-M operational-tactical complexes.
    In the Kaliningrad region, the Russian military has modern coastal missile systems " Bal " and "Bastion" , as well as long-range air defense systems S-400 "Triumph" (concern "Almaz-Antey").
    In July 2019, the Russian Defense Ministry reported that the Russian military had completed the construction of a new arsenal near Kaliningrad for storing missiles, torpedoes and artillery ammunition, as well as a new airfield for the Baltic Fleet's naval aviation.

    NOTE: The original regiments were Guards units so assume the new regiments are also. The Artillery regiment has not been identified yet however the old 18th Guards artillery unit was the 52nd Guards Artillery regiment.

    That's what the division is for: in Kaliningrad, they are completing the creation of a new formation

    According to experts, the strengthening of the Russian grouping on the territory of the exclave will be a response to the deployment of NATO forces in the Baltic countries.
    The strengthening of the Russian grouping in the Kaliningrad region is ahead of schedule. The Ministry of Defense is completing the creation of the 18th Guards Motorized Rifle Division on the territory of the exclave. In the fall, the newly formed formation will be on alert. At present, the formation and rearmament of three of its motorized rifle and one tank regiments is nearing completion. According to experts, the creation of a fully staffed division in the region is an inexpensive but effective response to NATO maneuvers near our borders.

    Following traditions

    Sources in the military department told Izvestia that the formation of the 18th motorized rifle division is now being completed in the Kaliningrad region. Its staffing and rearmament is planned to be completed in the fall. By this time, the formation will be fully operational with motorized rifle and tank regiments, artillery and anti-aircraft units and subunits, as well as several separate battalions. Previously, it was planned to create a new motorized rifle division in the exclave by the end of 2021.

    The upcoming deployment of a full-fledged motorized rifle division in the region was announced in December last year by the commander of the Baltic Fleet, Alexander Nosatov. According to the admiral, the new unit will become part of the 11th Army Corps defending Kaliningrad. The division is a powerful self-sufficient formation that has everything necessary for conducting various types of combat operations.
    In the rear of the battles: Kaliningrad will be protected by ultra-long-range scouts. The soldiers of the new unit will be able to determine targets inaccessible to satellites and drones

    Izvestia learned a few exclusive details about the formation of the 18th division. So, the basis of the new formation was the reformed 79th Guards Motorized Rifle Brigade. At its base, the 79th motorized rifle regiment was deployed, as well as combat support units and subunits - a separate communications battalion, a reconnaissance battalion, and an engineer-sapper. The division included the newly formed 275th and 280th motorized rifle regiments, as well as the 11th tank regiment.

    At the end of April, Admiral Alexander Nosatov presented the commanders of the created motorized rifle units with the historical battle banners of the 275th and 280th regiments, under which they fought during the Great Patriotic War. And even earlier, in March, Deputy Defense Minister Colonel-General Andrei Kartapolov handed over the historical battle banner to the commander of the 18th division being formed.

    According to the interlocutors of the publication, it was previously assumed that one of the military units that would become part of the division would be the 7th separate motorized rifle regiment. However, in the end, the Ministry of Defense decided to leave it in the status of a separate unit.

    “The strengthening of the grouping in the Baltic region on the basis of Kaliningrad has been going on for a long time,” Inna Vetrenko, head of the Department of Management and Social Technologies of the North-West Institute of RANEPA, told Izvestia. - It is undoubtedly necessary to strengthen this area, since there is a geopolitical threat from the western direction. There are information campaigns on the part of Poland and other European NATO member states, and territorial claims are being made. All this speaks about the consideration of such issues within these states.

    The expert associates the accelerated creation of new formations of the Russian army with the recent exercises of NATO forces in the Baltic countries.

    “After these maneuvers, analytical studies were carried out and vulnerabilities were identified for strengthening military groupings of strategic importance,” explained Anna Vetrenko.
    Special Purpose Region

    The 79th Separate Guards Motorized Rifle Insterburg Brigade, whose units became the basis for a new formation, is the heir to the 18th Guards Rifle Division, which distinguished itself in the battles of the Great Patriotic War. Initially, it was formed in 1939 at number 133. It participated in hostilities since July 1941, held the defenses on the Dnieper, in the Smolensk and Kalinin (now Tver) regions. For the heroism of the personnel, the unit was one of the first in March 1942 to receive the status of a guard and serial number 18. At the final stage of the war, the division stormed Konigsberg (today Kaliningrad) and Pillau (Baltiysk), fought on the Baltic Spit. At the end of 1945, it was transformed into the 30th Guards Mechanized Division, in 1957 - into the 30th Guards Motorized Rifle Division, in 1964 - into the 18th Guards Motorized Rifle Division.In 2001 it became the 79th separate guards motorized rifle brigade.

    In recent years, a multinational NATO strike group has been concentrated near the border of the region. The modernization and strengthening of the Russian connection in the exclave has been going on for several years. At the beginning of 2018, Iskander-M operational-tactical missile systems were transferred to the region. According to the Ministry of Defense, the 152nd missile brigade of the 11th Army Corps of the Baltic Fleet was rearmed on them.

    At the beginning of 2019, there were reports of the reorganization of the tank battalion located in the Kaliningrad region into the 11th separate regiment. In 2020, representatives of the defense department announced the receipt of three dozen modernized T-72B3M tanks with significantly improved protection against cumulative ammunition and a new fire control system.

    Recently, Russia has been actively strengthening the defense of the exclave. As Izvestia previously reported, this year a division of unique supersonic Bastion complexes will be deployed there. They are capable of hitting targets at a distance of up to 600 km. The Coastal Missile Force is represented by the 27th Separate Brigade. The connection is based in the village of Donskoye, Svetlogorsk urban district, 30 km from the regional center. This settlement is located at the westernmost tip of the Zemland peninsula, approximately at the same distance from the northern and southern borders of the region. This location makes it possible to keep under control almost the entire Baltic Sea area adjacent to Russian territory.
