Abstract:

This study examines Soviet troop air defense tactical employment doctrine and procedures for the protection of the maneuver forces. The air defense protection of the first echelon motorized rifle battalion MRB will be analyzed in detail employing a situational approach i.e. the analysis of the tactical employment of air defense systems as they protect the MRB during various forms of combat operations. Soviet sources were used almost exclusively. Consequently, the analysis is based upon what the Soviet military is writing about the tactical employment of its own weapon systems and, therefore, the coverage is not and cannot be totally complete.
