The center of territorial troops of the Southern Military District of the RF Armed Forces ordered militants in the Donbas to change the structure of tank battalions, according to the Coordinator of the "Information Resistance" group, People's Deputy Dmitry Tymchuk.
Now each tank unit of the ORDLO terrorists will have a four-rotational structure instead of a three- rotational one, as well as an additional tank, which would increase in the total amount of equipment available to the militants.
“At the direction of the Center of Territorial Troops of the South-Eastern Military District of the Russian Federation, the Russian command of the "1st DPR Army Corps" and "2nd LPR Army Corps" initiated changes in the organizational and staff structure of its formations and units. Thus, the tank battalions that form part of these army corps are changed from a 3-rotary unit to a 4-rotary structure, and one tank (of the second in command of a battalion) was also added to the staff of individual tank battalions. After introducing these measures, the number of tanks in the combat units and divisions of the two army corps will exceed 450 units (as of February this year, their number was about 380 units, according to the Informational Resistance group).”
Earlier QHA reported that the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation hopes to conceal from the international community the supply of weapons to the terrorist forces in the Donbas, introducing these weapons and ammunition as disposed. The program of the Russian so-called utilization includes almost 10,000 units of armored vehicles and 21,500 units of artillery armament.
