The Russian military’s submarine division, the Rzhevskoye (SS) has the most combat experience of any Russian military unit, according to data provided by the Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD).
The data, which was obtained by Business Insider, showed that the RZhevksy submarine command has the greatest combat experience in the entire Russian armed forces, as well as among its allies.
The MoD said that the SS group is the largest in the country’s navy.
The Russian defense ministry says it has about 50 submarines in total, including several submarines that are based on Russian soil.
The Rzheskoye has its own command structure and has several special operations units, as its name suggests.
It has special operations forces, commando units, and special forces, according the ministry.
A spokesman for the Russian defense minister, Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov, told reporters in Moscow that the data was not representative of all of the SS units.
Konashenkov added that he would be willing to discuss the data with the Ukrainian government.
