The term "Spetsnaz" is a generic term that describes a special brigade within the USSR's and RF's armies, they are trained quickly and rigorously so they are always available to respond to any special operation, regardless of losses. This includes a rigorously controlled diet. A blend of the correct proteins is vital to maintaining clarity of perception and vision. it is also thought to allow them to awake, instantly fully alert and ready for combat. Primary conception of strategy and tactic of application of the special forces realy belongs to the Russian military theorist Michael Svechnykov (Stalin destroyed him in 1938), and could to starting from the bold dream about victory in an unequal fight because had dependence with Russian military traditional readiness to the nervous fight, but practical realization was begun by the "grandfather of the Russian spetsnaz" Ilya Starinov.
During World War II, reconnaissance and diversionary forces were formed under the supervision of the Second Department of the General Staff. These forces were subordinate to the commanders of Fronts. In 1957, the first Spetsnaz battalions were formed, five to eliminate enemy nuclear weapons systems such as the MGR-3 Little John and the MGM-1 Matador. The first brigades were formed in 1962, reportedly to reach up to 750 kilometres in the rear to destroy U.S. weapons systems such as the MGM-52 Lance, the MGM-29 Sergeant, and the MGM-31 Pershing. Two 'study regiments' were established in the 1960s to train specialists and NCOs, the first in 1968 at Pechora near Pskov, and the second in 1970 at Chirchiq near Tashkent.
During the Afghan war, Spetsnaz were relied upon heavily, to infiltrate the ranks of the local militia, and to clear them off of hills using helicopter transport.

Spetsnaz are a different kind of elite infantry to those fielded by most other nations, as they are totally specialised towards close-range infantry combat. They are armed with napalm rocket launchers, which can quickly destroy enemy infantry and unarmored vehicles, but this weapon does not have an AP value. As such, Spetsnaz can destroy just about any enemy infantry unit, but cannot effectively fight against anything else, especially tanks and aircraft.
