( 1 ) If changing the Generals positions information is correct , then this means that command is less top heavy . If this trend continues , then decisions will increasingly be made by lower ranks ( rank is a word derived from Persian word of '" rang " or colours , in the old Persian Army , to distinguish fighting groups ) . A good thing , I think , where every soldier is a General and vice versa . More efficient , less Brass and more Lead .
Surovikin and Gerasimov have the same military rank: General of the Army, I thought that it is equivalent to 4 stars, above that it is only a Marshal if it exists in Russia nowadays
What has happened is that there has been an expansion of command capabilities, if several Z, O, V formations were unified in September, under the same command, now the expansion of command means going from a single "front" (group of armies) to two or more "fronts" , as happened in the Great Patriotic War
That supposes that more forces will come into play and the scenario of operations will be expanded.
But there is still a long way to go to reach the extent of the Red Army with perhaps 12 million of manpower and this command
( 2 ) What does Salt react with to produce chemicals that erode steel ? But that produces no harmful gas for humans in the Salt - mines ? If such reaction takes place , then all weapons and Ammo rust . No need to send troops down to clear
Salt (any salt) is the result of a chemical reaction, therefore it is more stable. Common salt is used as a preservative
For example, hydrochloric acid ClH can react with caustic soda / sodium hydroxide Na(OH) to give ClNa and H2O
