Weaponology: Spetsnaz


Russian Armed Forces

The Russian Armed Forces are national budget sponsored defense and fighting forces and organizations consisting of three major forces called the Ground Force (GF), the Air Force (AF) and the Navy to defend the homeland on land, in the air and at sea and a number of smaller-size branches bearing responsibility for other spheres of armed defence and troops support.

This structure has been chosen following a number of transformations as the most adequate to contemporary threats to national defence and most comfortable for easy and cost effective command and control.

The primary role of the Spetsnaz special purpose units are to carry out strategic missions behind enemy lines. They primarily perform these missions during the days leading up to a war, and after war breaks out.

Spetsnaz fighters are masters of hand-to-hand fighting and convert military operations. During hand-to-hand combat traing, individual soldiers learn to destroy the enemy by any available means, as quickly as possible, and regardless of superior weapons or the number of enemies. Their motto is knows to be, “Any mission, any time, any place.”

Airborne Assault Troops [VDV]
The mission of the Airborne Assault Troops [VDV] is to make possible a quick response to national emergencies. The airborne troops are considered an elite force because they are individually selected from volunteers based on physical fitness, intelligence, and loyalty. By traditional military standards, the airborne troops are not a powerful force. Each division is assigned about 6,000 lightly armed troops with lightly armored vehicles. Their value is that they have special training and have operational and strategic mobility provided by long-range aircraft.

Russian Naval Infantry

The Russian Naval Infantry, are the amphibious force of the Russian Armed Forces. The first Russian naval infantry force was formed in 1705, and since that time they have fought in the Napoleonic Wars, the Crimean War, the Russo-Japanese War, and the First and Second World Wars.

There is at least one naval infantry regiment attached to each of the major Russian fleets. In total the Russian Naval Infantry numbers 12,000 men and has very little organic firepower or support, and if committed to combat it would require reinforcement within less than a week. Russian military doctrine calls for the naval infantry to be used as shock troops spearheading an assault that would be followed up by ground forces.
