The Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) has reportedly re-established the 1st Tank Army with its headquarters at Bakovka, southwest of Moscow. The army withdrew from Germany in 1992 and disbanded in 1999.
The Moscow-based Centre for the Analysis of Strategies and Technologies reported this information on 1 June. It published a photograph of a sign at the entrance to the Kalininets-based 2nd Taman Motorised Rifle Division indicating its subordination to the re-created tank army.
On 2 June, business daily Vedomosti reported that an officer from a division falling under the tank army and a MoD officer confirmed this information. The Tank Army was reportedly reformed on 13 November 2014.
