Tajbeg Palace 1987


Tajbeg Palace or Tapa-e-Tajbeg Palace is a Palace built in the 1920s and located about ten miles (16 km) outside of the center of Kabul, Afghanistan. The stately mansion sits atop a knoll among foothills where the Afghan royal family once hunted and picnicked. It should not be confused with Darul Aman Palace, which is about 0.8 miles (1.3 km) northeast from Tajbeg. Built during the era of Amanullah Khan, this palace was home of the royal family. European architects were hired by the royal court to build of a new city quarter called “Darulaman”, of which the Taj-Beg palace is one of the most impressive landmarks.


OPERATION STORM 33
TARGET
HAFIZULLAH AMIN

Hafizullah_Amin.jpg (8650 bytes)

General Secretary of the Central Committee of the People’s Democratic Party

Hafizullah Amin (1 August 1929 – 27 December 1979) was an Afghan politician and statesman during the Cold War. Amin was born in Paghman and educated at Kabul University, after which he started his career as a teacher. After a few years in that occupation, he went to the United States to study. He would visit the United States a second time before moving permanently to Afghanistan, and starting his career in radical politics. He ran as a candidate in the 1965 parliamentary election but failed to secure a seat. Amin was the only Khalqist elected to parliament in the 1969 parliamentary election, thus increasing his standing within the party. He was one of the leading organizers of the Saur Revolution which overthrew the government of Mohammad Daoud Khan.

Amin’s short-lived presidency was marked by controversies from beginning to end. He came to power by ordering the death of his predecessor Nur Muhammad Taraki. The revolt against communist rule which had begun under Taraki worsened under Amin, and was a problem that his government was unable to solve. The Soviet Union, which alleged that Amin was an agent of the CIA, intervened in Afghanistan on behalf of the Twenty-Year Treaty of Friendship between Afghanistan and the Soviet Union. Amin was assassinated by the Soviets in December 1979 as part of Operation Storm-333, having ruled for slightly longer than three months.

Operation Storm-333

On December 27, 1979, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) launched its intervention in Afghanistan. That evening, the Soviet military launched Operation Storm-333, in which some 700 troops, including 54 KGB spetsnaz special forces troops from the Alpha Group and Zenith Group, stormed the Palace and killed President Hafizullah Amin, who resided there.

(Alpha Group’s veterans called Operation Storm-333[1979] one of the most successful in the group’s history and a commemorative watch was issued on the 10th year [1989] anniversary which also marked the End Of The Soviet Afghanistan War!) .

Operation Storm-333 was the code name of the Soviet special forces operation on 27 December 1979 in which Soviet special forces stormed the Tajbeg Palace in Afghanistan and killed President Hafizullah Amin and his 200 personal guards while seizing the Ministry of Interior building, the Internal Security (KHAD) building, and the General Staff building (Darul Aman Palace).

AFGHAN.jpg (118573 bytes)

Taking part in the operation were 24 men from “Thunder” unit of Alpha Group, GRU, and 30 operators from a special KGB group Zenith.. There were also 520 men from the 154th Separate Spetsnaz Detachment of the USSR Ministry of Defense, known as the “Muslim battalion” because it consisted exclusively of soldiers from the southern republics of the USSR, and 87 troops of a company of 345 Guards Airborne Regiment. These support troops were not issued armor or helmets, but one of them recalls that a magazine tucked inside his clothes protected him from an SMG bullet. The GRU and KGB units were clad in bullet-proof

Over 700 members of the KGB from the Center and the Periphery dressed in Afghan army uniforms.were also dropped into Kabul to take part in “Operation Agat.” Over 100 of the KGB would be killed in the attack on the palace. Such large losses forced Andropov to question the expediency of hanging portraits in mourning frames of heroes killed whilst carrying out their noble international mission in the halls and corridors as this would attract unnecessary attention.

Russian Stamp Honoring Pobeda 2010

Pobeda
[
VICTORY]
Joseph Stalin Chose Name

Many Pobeda watches were created to commemorate special occasions, such as victories in battle, Party congresses, or space flights. These commemorative watches were often given as gifts.

Pobeda (Victory in Russian: ) is a Russian brand of wrist- and pocket watches. Based on a French (LIP) design, the Pobeda’s simple, 15-jewel movement was cost-effective, reliable, and easy to manufacture and maintain. This ensured its remarkable production life span between the years 1946 and 2004.

Prior to World War II, during a period of rapid industrialization in the Soviet Union, the Soviet government sought international funding and expertise in developing a domestic industry for timepieces. Eventually the French watch manufacturer LIP was chosen; they established a new watch factory in Penza and licensed several movement designs to the new establishment.

One design dating from 1908, the R-26 movement, was further developed and renamed the K-26, with significant alterations to the original design. World War II temporarily disrupted these plans, but after the Allied victory, this watch design was quickly finished at Penza, and full scale production commenced at the First Moscow Watch Factory. Joseph Stalin chose the name Pobeda (Victory) to celebrate the end of the war.

In the Soviet Union, a product brand was not necessarily exclusive to a particular manufacturing site, and during its lifetime, production of Pobeda watches was shifted between the following plants:

Penza Watch Factory from 1946
First Moscow Watch Factory 1946 to 1953
Petrodvorets Watch Factory 1949 to 1962
Chistopol Watch Factory 1949 to the c.1950
Second Moscow Watch Factory 1953 to 1964
Maslennikov Factory 1951 to 2004

the 15 jewel Cal.2602 that is in this Storm-333 was originally manufactured from 1946 to 1956. Since 1956 production was continued in other factories, and with each transfer to a new factory some minor modifications came along. Pobjeda (=victory) is the correct name for the first version of this movement designed by Lip There is also the Zim 2602 which refers to samples made in the Watch Factory Maslenikov .

Pobjeda: sub second
Sportivnie: sweep second


Wostok, cap jewels for escape wheel
