New Russian formations - Update 004
Building a post-mobilization Russian OOB. Information cutoff: June 15th - 2023
It's been a while since I published the last update and I haven't been able to spend as much time as previously digging for new info, but I do have some new entries and updates.
Do keep in mind that these lists are highly likely incomplete, some entries could be wrong and this is very much work in progress. There's a also a good chance I've missed some reporting which could have identified additional units.
I do get some help in the collection process so a thank you is in order, you know who you are.
25th Combined Arms Army
The first new army level formation is reportedly being formed in Siberia.1 There are few details, so possible composition and timeline for the establishment of this formation is not known.
40th Army Corps
A new army corps is being formed in the Southern Military District.2
The existence of one battalion of the 144th MRB has been confirmed, other than that, little is known about the composition of this corps.
Brigades and regiments
New entries and other updates since last issue marked in yellow.
Note on command relationships
There is a great deal of uncertainty around how the units on the “parent unit unknown or poss independent units” list fits into the organizational picture on the frontlines. If more information becomes available, I will include this in future updates.
Some regiments, as comments shows, have likely been incorporated or reorganized into certain 1st and 2nd Army Corps brigades.
Tank- and artillery units, independent battalions
One local defense battalion, Belgorod Oblast, has been added.
I'm starting to have doubts around some of these Motorized Rifle Divisions, as they aren't mentioned in reporting. The regiments in this list likely exists, unless they have been disbanded.
Have deleted the 295th MRD, 1307th MRR moved to regiments list.
Clarifications and sources
Mobilized personell serve in all types of Russian formations: regular ground forces, VDV, Naval Infantry and the new formations so these lists doesn't show the true scale of Russian mobilization. Voulenteer units, which exists in many shapes and sizes, are also excluded.
Except for the footnotes, 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. Again, I'm grateful for those of you who send me relevant info.
