The Russian Ground Forces are the ground forces of the Russian Federation, formed with parts of the dissolution of the Soviet Army in 1992. Although the Russian Ground Forces in their present form are only fifteen years old, Russian officials presented the history of their history through the time of Imperial Russia until the times of Kievan Rus.
Tank Troops are the main impact force of the Ground Forces and the powerful means of armed struggle, with the intention of fulfilling the most important tasks of combat.
There are currently three tank divisions in the force: 4th and 10th within the Moscow Military District and 5th Gds 'Don' in the Siberian Military District. The 2nd Division Taques in the Siberian Military District and the 21st Tank Division in the Far East Military District have been dissolved in the last three years.
