The formations of the Marine Corps of the Russian Navy will soon be fully reinforced with tank units. This was announced by Lieutenant General Viktor Astapov in an interview with the Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper.
All units of the Marine Corps are already equipped with the latest weapons and equipment, he added. For example, at the beginning of this year, the Russian Navy received more than 20 improved T-80BMV tanks.
“Today, the combat potential of the Marine Corps is increasing due to the constant improvement of the organizational and staffing structure of formations and units by introducing tank units, electronic warfare units and unmanned aircraft into their composition, as well as the supply of new and modernization of equipment models that are in service,” Astapov said. .
In the coming years, new nuclear submarines will also be transferred to the arsenal of the Navy. We are talking about “Generalissimo Suvorov” and “Krasnoyarsk”.
