About Airborne Special Forces battle group
Special Forces soldier in combat reconnaissance patrol. 45th Separate Guards Order of Kutuzov Order of Alexander Nevsky Regiment special destination. Cuban, July 2011
Battle SWAT team secretly move "shoals" of forests, bristling in all directions trunks, covering each other, conducting ongoing monitoring, listening and even smelling. It was the third day of the training session, the scouts were preparing for the impending competition. The backbone of the group - contractors with a fair combat experience with them - a couple of young conscripts.
According to the instructor, who controlled all the actions of the group, for the preparation of a full-fledged fighter of special forces must be not less than three years, so that conscripts in the group to strengthen its simply can not. But, according to one of the squad leaders, these days the young soldiers showed themselves very well, and a burden in any case did not.
The group, in addition to the commander, his deputy and the commander combat branches, have medical instructor, snipers, sappers and signalmen. Main specialization each has its own, but, on occasion, fighters can replace each other.
Weapons from commandos - are quite diverse: sniper rifles SIDS, quiet "Vintorez" (rifle, in my opinion, an amazing, come from this shoot - pure delight!), Kalashnikov assault rifles of various modifications - AKM with PBS or a grenade launcher (7.62) and AK-74 (5.45 caliber) machine gun "Pecheneg". The sergeant explained AKM: for automatic choices - would prefer the AK-74. Caliber smaller, but the bullet when it enters the body of the enemy can inflict wounds stronger than the bullet right through a sewing 7.62 Akmal. Fighters necessarily teach possession of knives, knife, of course, is part of the normal equipment. During the raid, knives and guns in the group, I did not see, but of course they have, in particular, used guns with silencers.
Plan lessons that day included a concealed movement in the woods, constant reconnaissance patrols, disguise, imitation rescue a wounded soldier with the provision of first aid, the seizure of the vehicle, the prisoner and documents and, finally, to overcome the water barrier.
equipment in the scouts, including clothes, joy highest class Internet experts very different. Explanation of this fact two: a three-day training session on the dress in "podmenku," you do not mind mercilessly tear and tear. And the second reason - money. Most of the equipment purchased by soldiers for their money. Do you want to fight with comfort - create yourself it himself.
45 Regiment - the regiment is a special, special purpose, sharpened by performing reconnaissance and sabotage operations and assassinations piece, so no need to unify the men working in the area of actual combat - not. Supply in the regiment, of course, there is, but produced according to the standards VDV apparently insufficient for the needs of Special Forces Airborne. Why is this happening - does not matter to me. But the situation, as I understand it from communicating with the special forces of the various structures - the usual. The reality around such. He drew attention to the shoes - it is non-standard, nice and obviously not cheap. Additionally, one of the scouts asked a provocative question: socks or leg wrappings? The answer was this - someone like that. There are no restrictions. Footcloths wear, nothing wrong with that do not see. Normal weight equipment in the fighting raid can reach 40-50 kilograms, this time as many scouts does not carry. They say - there were about 20-25 kg.
At the exit from a forest, a group of carefully crossed the road simulated not very successful clash at a short distance - one of the NCOs was injured. The band began to work with the wounded. Simulated quite severe bullet wounds - in the leg and into the eye. And until the pile began profuse blood loss. Wounded, in terms of the problem was first conscious and able to speak, but gradually the group "lost" it.
Dragging his wounded limb tourniquet and bandaged head, start training intravenous injection. Kololi really, in the syringe from the vial was glucose, but in combat it would be adrenaline or pacemakers. Generally speaking, in the first-aid medical orderly was a lot of that, sorry, I'm not a doctor, I could not appreciate it at its true worth filling.
Before capturing a captive group distributed on both sides of the road. As soon as the army truck pulled up to the agreed puddle in the glass he flew pre-cooked condoms with water-based paint inside. The car stopped, dragged him out of the cab and took prisoners to the woods. Seconds, probably 20-30 - and all was quiet. In the real world no condom, of course not. The driver arrives several bullets from a silent weapon, then made the same exact capture of prisoners or documents. The driver, as explained by one of the men, as a rule, does not represent any value, but their skills can break the action. Because he was not spared. It has been refined and the following point: the situation like in the movies, when a prisoner proudly silent commando did not recall in real life. If necessary, the prisoner used methods, crushing his will and mind rather quickly.
After emergency "evisceration" and promptly obtain the necessary information, the fate of the captive can develop diverse. If he needed command alive - will be specially limited in movements, denied the opportunity to apply the voice signal, but still be able to move independently. Or will not save. If necessary, of course.
At the crossing of the men with evident pleasure, stripped, left only in T-shirts and panamkah. T-shirts - not to fall into the frame all sorts of special features: Tattoos, scars, scars. Fins yellow in a combat situation are replaced with black. And training can quickly be found in the pond, if they suddenly soskochat feet.
The first scouts packed up their gear and clothing germomeshki (one of the commandos used the cloak of UGC), strapped on top of the weapon unwound long cords attached to plastic bottles, floats and went "to the other side." The others were preparing to cross and covered her. The first pair arrived at the designated point and took up defensive positions. Her went to the second, third and so on. Stretched first pair of cord allowed commandos quickly pull up to the beach the other, which saves time and effort sail. Finally, all the commandos got to the final destination. Tired certainly hungry. One of the sergeants said that after 4-5 hours of rest group may again proceed to the assignment. If Homeland orders.
Guys - strength, health and good luck, hard they work, dangerous, but very necessary. Tea, do not bathe in the fountains. The impression that they are not for money, but for the idea or something. That would not be mistaken in this assumption.
Press Club and the Ministry of Defense press service of the VDV - thanks for organizing another interesting race.
