The 45th Army was a field army of the Red Army in World War II.

It spent most of the war in Iran and ceased to exist in 1946 after return to the Soviet Union.[1] Both its Rifle Corps (12th and 13th) and a number of divisions (261st, 296th, 349th, 392nd, 402nd, 406th Rifle Divisions) existed for a long time, and some - until the collapse of the Soviet Union.
