The Russian army is forming reconnaissance and assault brigades to storm fortifications and conduct reconnaissance in the immediate rear of the enemy, Izvestia reports this today, September 25, citing sources in the Russian Ministry of Defense.
Sources claim that the recruitment of reconnaissance and assault brigades has already begun. They will be part of combined arms armies, as well as newly formed army corps. Their organizational and staffing structure is not disclosed, but it is indicated that they will include assault squads for breaking layered defenses, as well as reconnaissance units capable of conducting reconnaissance at tactical depth, the sources noted.
The brigades will have tanks, light armored vehicles, artillery and a wide range of drones at their disposal. At the same time, the personnel of the assault detachments will be trained to fight in confined spaces – trenches, buildings, bunkers and bunkers.
It is noted that new military units are being created taking into account the experience of a special military operation.
Chairman of the Union of Russian Paratroopers, Colonel Valery Yuriev explained to the publication that the North Military District “showed the need to have specialized units for storming fortified areas.”
“At the initial stage, there were many problems due to the fact that the scouts were not used for their intended purpose, but as attack aircraft. Because of this, many highly qualified specialists were lost,” Yuryev said.
