New Russian formations - Update 001
Building a post-mobilization Russian OOB. Information cutoff: March 13th - 2023
This is an update to the list of new Russian formations that I first published on March 8th.
Keep in mind that these lists are highly likely incomplete, some entries could be wrong and this is very much work in progress.
On sources: I have not compiled individual references for each entry but the main sources for updated info are the CIT mobilization summaries, the CDS Daily Briefs, videos translated by @wartranslated in addition to own research. I have also gotten some help collecting, for which I'm thankful and you know who you are.
New entries and other updates since last issue marked in yellow. I have also added a “comment" column.
Parent unit unknown or possible independent units
Note on the Independent/Separate Rifle Battalions
The independent/separate rifle battalions are battalions sent to reinforce Belgorod Oblast following the recent cross border spectacle, possibly with personnel drawn from existing rear services and support units.
The designation “Separate Rifle Battalion” is coined by me, not a confirmed official designation.
There are no new updates or entries to the list of newly formed divisions since first publishing my lists on March 8th.
Once again, this list is highly likely incomplete, but I do hope some of you finds this useful.
The next update will be published when I have enough new info/updates to warrant writing one.
