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

    I got the photos from a reliable (when it comes to Russian weaponry/strategy) twitter user named 'Hans Schmulke':

    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.


    Here's it's counterparts:

    Multi-spectral opaque foaming machine. The same one you've seen wash/rinse Topol-M launchers. This one is still with it's primer exposed, before its camouflage has been painted on.

    Have never seen the first unit before and not sure how it works from the pictures. Would be interesting to see it in action.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
