Russian Force Structure for Large Scale Combat Operations



Russian preparations for the Conduct of Large-Scale Combat Operations are typically discussed in terms of how Russia has conducted combat operations in Crimea, Eastern Ukraine and Syria. These discussions focus on information operations, the use of subterfuge through the ‘polite people’ or ‘little green men’, and particularly, the use of Battalion Tactical Groups (BTGs) as Russian military force projection. What is seldom discussed is how Russia envisions the conduct of large-scale combat operations. Dr. Lester Grau and Charles Bartles will present their understanding of Russia’s preparations for large-scale combat operations, how these preparations are substantially different from those in Soviet times, and how they view these preparations in terms of brigades/divisions, army groups/army corps, joint operational commands/fronts, and the Russian General Staff.

Grau and Bartles wrote a terrific report, and they offered some additional titbits with their somewhat rambly presentation (Army corps under maritime command, that was new). Kofman, as usual, was brilliant. Good presentation overall, enjoyed this. Thanks to CSIS.

In order to amuse myself I want to point out that Kofman was wrong about Ukrainian martial law in what was a very amusing argument a few months ago.

Are you still crying for Hitler´s defeat? Notice that winter comes every year, and in Russia it lasts for five months. The germans should not atack Russia if they could not face winter. Did they not know about russian winter? If Hitler did not atack Russia, all the wwII would be different, maybe England surrenders, maybe US would not get into the war in Europe.
