“We plan to further build up our combat potential and zones of our troops’ presence outside the country,” he told reporters.
Shamanov added that under the state defense order, VDV will receive before 2025 more than 1,500 new BMD-4M airborne fighting vehicles and more than 2,500 armoured personnel carriers of different versions. “All this will in full measure ensure VDV technical re-equipment and by the end of 2025 will enable the troops to operate far outside Russia,” he said.
Shamanov also said it was planned to create attack drones, which will support reconnaissance units deep in enemy territory.
Such drones will allow VDV reconnaissance units to conduct operations deep in enemy territory, “that is, we will create the continued presence zone, thus creating intolerable conditions for the enemy,” Shamanov said.
According to him, first attack drones may be delivered to the Airborne Troops in 2015.
