  1. I wouldn’t say this is a Brigade size manuever. At best this is a battalion. A few infantry, a company of tanks, a company of personel carriers, some anti aircraft support, and a few air units. It looks fun and cool but not near the size of a brigade.

    • Agree. Believe the Russians today would be very hard-pressed to hold large-scale maneuvers. Happily, I don’t see the Russian Army needing to engage in any large-scale combat any time soon.

      • Truly, China is probably the greatest military threat to Russia at the moment. I am sure they wouldn’t mind owning the whole eastern half of Russia. A lot of resources to use and very little population to control. Also their logistical lines would be much shorter than the Russian defenders. The Russian would encountert he same problems the Germans did except they would be trying to reclaim their own land.

  2. Any information about how those trainings are carried out? How are the CO-s briefed? I mean like, did they know before the beginning exercise that the bridge will be “destroyed” etc. Would be interesting to know how close to reality they get.

  3. Among modern Russian Army officers, a military appearance is obviously not a priority. The line up of officers looks like a bunch of garage mechanics.
