Today, in the city of Naro-Fominsk, near Moscow, the personnel of the Guards Kantemirovskaya tank division of the tank formation of the Western Military District celebrates the 79th anniversary of the formation of the formation.

On the occasion of the anniversary, an open day was held at the permanent deployment point in Naro-Fominsk. The servicemen will demonstrate, especially for the guests, the reconstruction of the battle for the settlement of Kantemirovka, from where the combat route of the compound began. The parade ground will host an exhibition of modern weapons and military equipment in service with the division.

Currently, the division includes tank, motorized rifle, artillery, anti-aircraft missile units and support units, which makes it possible to solve tasks both as part of the main forces and independently. In service are the well-proven T-80 tanks, armored personnel carriers BTR-82A, artillery installations “Msta-S” and “Msta-B”, unmanned aerial vehicles, reconnaissance control and communications systems “Strelets”, sets of combat equipment “Ratnik” and individual protective suits “Cowboy”. At the end of 2016, the compound was reinforced with a new regiment.

From 2018 to the present, the Kantemirovskaya tank division of the Western Military District has been commanded by Major General Vladimir Zavadsky.
