    The Russian Ground Forces' Air Defense Force will become part of a united aerospace defense system, the Air Defense Force's chief has said.

    "In the course of the creation of a united aerospace defense system, the Russian Ground Forces' Air Defense Force will become one of its most important parts which together with other aerospace defense elements will be responsible for air defense and non-strategic missile defense at infrastructure and military facilities and troop deployment sites," Major General Alexander Leonov told journalists in Moscow on Saturday.

    The Russian Ground Forces' Air Defense Force includes such air defense systems as S-300, Buk (SA-11 Gadfly), Pantsir-S1 (SA-22 Greyhound), Top (SA-15 Gauntlet), Tunguska ( SA-19 Grison), Strela-10 (SA-13 Gopher), and Shilka (Awl).

    So what happens to Russian naval assets (like the ship mounted SAMs)? Surely they stay within the naval chain of command.

    This sounds like a major reorganization headache.

    "just part of a greater Russian military reform -- it was postponed due to the Georgia conflict"

    It remains seeing how this is managed. Tying critical components of any manuever taskforce to permanent static responsibilities potentially limits or removes altogether opportunities for advanced integrated training in dynamic and fluid battle environments.
