Russia’s New NBC Units to Receive Advanced Equipment
Two new regiments of the NBC defence troops will be formed in Russia’s Volgograd Region and the Republic of Ingushetia by the end of the year. The regiments will be able to fully meet the needs of military units and formations of the Southern Military District. This information was presented by the press service of the Southern Military District.
The newly formed divisions will receive about 400 units of weapons, military and special equipment, including the newest RHM-6 radiation and chemical reconnaissance vehicle, the AL-5 mobile laboratory, the ARS-14KM mobile spray station for special treatment of weapons and military hardware. The flame units will take delivery of the TOS-1A Solntsepyok systems and Shmel-M flame throwers.
It should be noted that Russia has already formed a new separate regiment of the NBC defence troops in Sevastopol to meet the needs of the Black Sea Fleet.
