CT's I.

This is coolbert:

From a Russian Internet web site a description of Coastal Troops [CT's], their mission and "structure". Table of Organization and Equipment [TO and E] not given with preciseness but we get the general picture.

"Coastal Troops".

"The Coastal Troops (СТs) are the Service Arm of the Navy, designed to cover the Fleets’ forces, troops, population and seashore objects against the exposure to enemy surface ships; to defend naval bases and other important facilities of the Fleets from the land, including against amphibious and air assaults; to be landed and act in the course of amphibious and air-amphibious assaults; to support the Land Force in the course of anti-airborne defense . . . to destroy surface ships, boats and amphibious transport"

"The Coastal Troops include two Arms: the Coastal Missile-Artillery Troops and the Marine Infantry".

. . . .

"Brigades and battalions are the main organizational elements of the CTs."

"The CTs are mainly equipped with combined-arms armaments and equipment. They are armed with coastal missile systems (CMSs) of anti-ship guided missiles, stationary and mobile artillery mounts, designed to destroy sea and ground targets, special (naval) reconnaissance means, etc."

Coastal Troops [CT's] what they are called that correct combination of * naval infantry [marines], * conventional tube artillery, * coastal anti-ship missiles AND in the ideal situation [?] * organic assets to deal with an amphibious landing by enemy forces while the adversary still contained..

Brigades and battalions presumably as task tailored into a divisional sized element the mission defense of the Russian Pacific Far East and Arctic regions.

To be continued.
