Since the 90s, the army of modern Russia has never been at such a high level of its combat capabilities as it is now. This is reported by several Western media at once, referring to the report "Assessment of the Russian modernization of the armed forces" of the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) in London.


The IISS analysts who have been doing research related to the military since 1958political conflicts and arms control, they believe that the RF Armed Forces have undergone a serious transformation over the past quarter century. The report notes that the Russian ground forces have become much smaller in number, but at the same time more agile and effective. They are the most numerous branch of the army, equipped with a variety of weapons, technique and ammunition, writes Bloomberg.

Great progress has been made in the modernization of rocket and cannon artillery, including self-propelled ones, as well as OTRK. The outdated Tochka-U were replaced with the new Iskander-M, which increased the combat power and capabilities of the Russians. The introduction of unmanned vehicles and the latest control systems made it possible to further enhance the strike potential.

Intelligence, communications, rear, air defense, electronic warfare, RCB protection units and engineering troops are also being updated at a rapid pace. According to analysts, the Airborne Forces and the MTR are a key component of Moscow's rapid response to the changing situation in the world, Die Zeit newspaper writes.

Russians in full alert

The increase in their combat readiness is associated with frequent exercises and the acquisition of real combat experience.

Now the RF Armed Forces are a powerful tool that Moscow is ready to use or threaten with its help to others

    Why are they all alarmed? What scared them so and continues to scare them? Yes, we have an army, it is supposed to be with the state, but I don’t understand who the Russian troops are threatening?
  4. Way to go, Russia!
