I'd agree, it's likely a ploy to say they have a large force when in reality just like our PRes they should be Marged, and likely would have 50-70 BTGs at full strength. They are mobilizing more reserves but those take time to get upto snub.Russian has pumped over 80k troops into action as replacements - hence why I tend to think most of the OS RUAF casualty numbers are on the low side.
I asked that same question elsewhere as to me right now the Russian BTG’s look more like a CAF PRes unit on parade than a fighting formation.
It makes sense to me that they would have an amalgamation of BTG’s to ensure the Inf and Armored sections of those units are as up to strength as can be. The excess tube Arty can be added to the BTG as a ‘bonus’ or used at higher level than the Battalion Group.
I guess having a paper force briefs better back home…
