Commander of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District (ZVO), Lieutenant General Sergei Kisel, congratulated the command and personnel on the 79th anniversary of the formation of the tank association.

“On behalf of the Military Council and on my own behalf, I congratulate the veterans, the personnel of formations and military units of the association on the Day of the formation of the Guards Red Banner Tank Army of the Western Military District. Today, our divisions are the benchmark for professionalism in performing the most complex tasks in any environment. Decisiveness, speed and onslaught – that’s what has always distinguished the tank army. A high level of training, endurance and perseverance help to master the most modern models of combat vehicles and always achieve their goals,” said Lieutenant General Sergei Kisel, commander of the formation.

The commander of the formation wished all the servicemen good health and success in their service activities for the benefit of our Motherland.

In terms of combat composition, the tank army of the Western Military District is a unique association, which has no equal in terms of combat capabilities in the Ground Forces. Parts of the army are stationed in several subjects of the country.

Over the past few years, the composition of the army has increased significantly; engineering, reconnaissance, tank, and motorized rifle units have been recreated in it. The governing bodies and the structure of the association make it possible to improve the quality of combat training, to qualitatively solve the assigned tasks as intended, to effectively organize and control daily activities, and to plan the combat use of troops.
