Motorized rifle troops are the most numerous branch of the army, which forms the basis of the Land Forces and the core of their battle formations. Together with the tank troops they perform the following main tasks:
• in defense – to hold occupied areas, lines and positions, repel enemy attacks and defeat its advancing groups;
• in an offensive (counter-offensive) – to break through the enemy's defense, defeat groups of his troops, capture important areas, borders and objects, force water barriers, and pursue the retreating enemy;
• conduct oncoming battles and battles, operate as part of sea and tactical airborne assault forces.
The basis of motorized rifle troops is made up of motorized rifle brigades that have high combat independence, versatility and firepower. They are capable of conducting combat operations under conditions of the use of both conventional means of warfare and weapons of mass destruction in various physical, geographical and climatic conditions, day and night.
Motorized rifle formations and subunits can quickly make marches over long distances, rapidly deploy into battle formations, break through prepared and hastily occupied enemy defenses, carry out a wide maneuver on the battlefield, develop an offensive at high rates and to great depths, independently force water obstacles, consolidate and hold the captured lines, create a stable defense in a short time.
An important direction in the development of motorized rifle troops is increasing their adaptability to airlifting and expanding the capabilities for conducting autonomous, highly maneuverable combat operations in isolated directions, switching over from one type of combat operations to another in a short time, rapidly changing directions and areas of action, carrying out concentration and dispersal.
Tank troops – a branch of the army and the main striking force of the Land Forces. They are mainly used in conjunction with motorized rifle troops in the main directions and perform the following main tasks:
• in defense — direct support of motorized rifle troops when repelling the enemy's offensive and applying counterattacks and counter strikes;
• in the offensive - by delivering powerful dissecting strikes to great depths, developing success, defeating the enemy in oncoming engagements and battles.
The basis of the tank troops are tank brigades and tank battalions of motorized rifle brigades, which have great resistance to the damaging factors of nuclear weapons, firepower, high mobility and maneuverability. They are able to make the fullest use of the results of fire (nuclear) destruction of the enemy and in a short time to achieve the ultimate goals of combat and operations.
The combat capabilities of tank formations and units allow them to conduct active combat operations day and night, in a significant separation from other troops, smash the enemy in oncoming battles and battles, overcome vast zones of radioactive contamination on the move, force water barriers, as well as quickly create a strong defense and successfully resist the offensive of superior enemy forces.
Further development and improvement of the combat capabilities of tank troops is carried out mainly by equipping them with more advanced types of tanks, which optimally combine such important combat properties as high firepower, maneuverability and reliable protection.

In improving organizational forms, the main efforts are concentrated on giving them a combined-arms character, which is most consistent with the content of modern operations (combat actions).
Artillery together with missile troops are a branch of Land Forces. Organizationally, artillery units are also part of the airborne troops, the coastal forces of the Navy, the National guard troops, and the FSS of Russia.
Organizationally, the MTA consists of rocket, jet artillery and artillery brigades, as well as artillery of combined arms formations of the Land Forces.

In an operation (battle), artillery is the main and most effective means of engaging the enemy with fire and supporting the actions of motorized rifle, tank, airborne assault formations (units, subunits), formations (units, subunits) of the Airborne troops and coastal troops of the Navy.
The main tasks of the missile troops are: the destruction of objects and main groupings of enemy forces to the entire depth of its operational formation or the reach of weapons, and in coastal areas, in addition, the destruction of bases of the forces of the enemy fleet and the destruction of its warships and ships.
The main tasks of artillery are: defeat enemy objects in its tactical depth, as well as smoke and blinding objects; remote mining of terrain and objects; light support for combat operations at night; distribution of propaganda materials; throwing radio interference transmitters into the enemy's location and creating fires.
Air Defense troops (AD LF) - are intended to cover troops and objects from the actions of enemy air attack weapons when combined-arms formations and large units operations (combat actions) are carried out, redeployments (march) and location on the spot. They are assigned the following main tasks:
- air defense combat duty;
- conducting reconnaissance of the air enemy and alerting the covered troops;
- destruction of enemy air attack means on air;
- participation in the conduct of missile defense in theaters of operations.
Organizationally, the AD LF consist of military command and control bodies, air defense command posts, anti-aircraft missile (rocket and artillery) formations, military units and divisions. They are capable of destroying enemy air attack weapons in the entire range of heights (extremely small - up to 200 m, small - from 200 to 1000 m, medium - from 1000 to 4000 m, large - from 4000 to 12000 m and in the stratosphere - more than 12000 m) and flight speeds.
