Wagner group and Russian SOF in Syria
The US Armed Forces unit responsible for adapting army units to modern war conditions has prepared an analytical report on Russian private military companies (PMCs). The target audience of this material is considered to be the commanders of the operational-tactical level of the American army. The practical significance of the report assumes that American commanders understand what should be taken into account when planning operations if Russian PMCs operate in their area of responsibility.
Americans are paying attention to the fact that Russian PMCs are primarily an instrument of foreign policy. They are used in high-risk operations where it is necessary to avoid official reports of high losses. Based on this, the most dangerous scenario is considered to be a clash with a group of PMCs staffed following the example of a battalion tactical group.
The most likely scenarios: PMCs acting in the interests of disrupting US efforts to respond to the crisis, capturing and holding key areas or potential evacuation sites during American operations, cooperation with local militarized structures opposing the United States to provide weapons and training, intelligence support.
The main PMCs were considered Moran Security Group, Wagner, Redut-Antiterror, RSB Group, while it is worth noting that US intelligence is quite well aware of the leadership of some of them.
Of course, special attention was paid to the training of Wagnerians (the total number is estimated at at least 3000 people), in order to form an adequate perception among the American infantry, analysts included in the report information about a two-month course of combat training in Molkino (Krasnodar Territory) based on the 10th Special Forces brigade, where PMC fighters train on T-72 tanks, Grad MLRS and other equipment.
Well, of course, what kind of report without specifying weaknesses, on which the Americans should press with all possible forces and means:
1) in the event of fire contact, use superiority in aviation technology to suppress and demoralize PMC fighters.
2) the moral and psychological state, especially after high-intensity hostilities, if the unit has suffered losses. Pressuring with the help of psychological warfare units in order to provoke desertion and the state of the victims after the “meat grinder”
3) use the internal political situation in the country, the lack of a regulatory framework, support or benefits for members of Russian PMCs who return home, even wounded, find themselves in a position of being left to their own devices.
4) whenever possible, use PMC fighters who received combat experience and failed to realize themselves in civilian life, as well as those who adhere to extreme right-wing or radical views, for illegal activities on the territory of the Russian Federation.
