Abstract : In this paper, the author discusses the organization, equipment, capabilities, and missions of Soviet airborne forces and examines the nature of Soviet airborne tactics in defensive training operations against armor. Particular attention is directed to a survey of selected articles appearing in Soviet military journals, namely, Voennyy Vestnik (Military Herald). The author concludes that while the offensive role of Soviet airborne forces is of paramount importance, defensive antiarmor operations and associated problems in forces training and employment remain issues of continued close interest and concern.
