Two recent Russian MOD activity graphics . . . .
The MOD has digested the complaint that its weekly graphics say nothing about missions in Syria or training inside Russia. This has been remedied.
The graphic above claims the Russian VKS conducted 290 combat flights to destroy 730 facilities of “international terrorist groups” in Syria, and 120 UAV flights against 160 facilities.
The MOD reported 87,000 personnel with 8,000 weapons and other pieces of equipment from 260 formations and units conducted more than 12,000 combat training evolutions, 45 percent of which occurred at night, on 114 ranges.
It noted that 175 aircraft, 3,000 vehicles, 850 trains, and 10 ships carried 285 pieces of equipment, 50,000 personnel, and 102,000 tons of cargo during the week.
On the contract service front, 1,819 personnel were accepted for contract service and 2,857 were in the selection process.
