How the Russian army has strengthened over the years


Long gone are the days when our soldiers were armed with outdated trash, and machinery there was nothing to fill. This year, the 10-year program of rearmament of the RF Armed Forces expires, on which 23 trillion rubles were spent. Its results are impressive: today the level of equipping with modern weapons in the army is 70%, and by 2024 this figure should reach almost 76%.


A detailed listing of the army "new items" will take more than one page, but still we will try to mark the most interesting positions.

Nuclear triad


Our troops received 109 Yars ICBMs, which have been re-equipped with three missile regiments of the Strategic Missile Forces, and 109 ICBMs for nuclear submarines. Almost 100% of the launchers are now on constant alert. The first regiment is being equipped with missile systems with the Avangard hypersonic gliding wing units, which are capable of speeds up to Mach 28. A deep modernization of five strategic bombers Tu-95MSM was carried out, a strategic supersonic missile carrier Tu-160M ​​was built from scratch. The submarine component of our nuclear triad has been replenished with the Borey-A nuclear submarine, Knyaz Vladimir, and Knyaz Oleg is also expected soon. Both modernized submarines are armed with 16 Bulava ballistic missiles with a modern anti-missile defense system.

VCS


Domestic combat aviation was replenished with 147 aircraft, among them 20 Su-30SM fighters and over 20 Su-4S generation "35" fighters, as well as upgraded MiG-31BM and Su-34, Ka-52 and Mi-28 helicopters. By 2024, 22 fifth-generation Su-57 fighters are expected. Reconnaissance drones "Pacing" and "Outpost" began to enter the Aerospace Forces. The air defense was reinforced with four regimental sets of S-400 Triumph air defense systems and 24 Pantsir-S air defense missile systems. The second stage of the deployment of the Unified Space System (CES) has been completed: the military received 54 new satellites.

Fleet


Currently, 19 ships of the far sea zone are under modernization, 16 more are under construction. The fleet has already expanded with 10 surface ships, 2 submarines, 10 supply vessels and 10 combat boats. Two brand new corvettes "Thundering" and "Hero of Russia Aldar Tsydenzhapov" are sent to the Pacific Fleet. According to the RF Ministry of Defense, in the next few years we will have 14 new nuclear submarines of the Borey-A and Yasen-M projects. Russia's maritime borders are covered by the Bal and Bastion coastal missile systems, the need for which has already been closed by 74%.

Ground troops


Our troops received over 3,5 thousand new types of weapons, among them more than two hundred T-72B3M, T-80BVM and T-90M tanks, as well as almost five hundred BTR-82A and BTR-82AM armored personnel carriers, over a hundred BMP-3 and more than 60 BMP-2M. It is planned to acquire over three dozen 152-mm self-propelled howitzers 2S19M2 Msta-SM, MLRS Tornado-G and Tornado-S. Heavy flamethrower systems TOS-2 were handed over to the military for trial operation; TOS-1A is subject to modernization. Our paratroopers received over 40 BMD-4M and BTR-MDM "Shell". The troops are reinforced with 12 self-propelled artillery mounts 2S35 "Coalition-SV". They are protected from attacks from the sky by two brand new Buk-M3 battalions, as well as MANPADS "Verba", designed to defeat drones. The robotic systems "Kungas", "Nerekhta" and the robotic version of the BTR-MDM "Shell" are being tested. The servicemen received modernized 12 mm AK-5,45 assault rifles.

Taken together, this means that the RF Armed Forces today are rightfully ranked among the most advanced, technologically equipped and combat-ready armies in the world.

    And at the same time, in terms of military spending, it moved to a modest 9th place.

    What's the use of all this if the Russian Federation with the help of the army cannot solve the problem of protecting its interests and the lives of hundreds of thousands of Russian citizens in Transnistria, Donbass, and Crimea, finally. Nobody is afraid of Russian weapons. Even the sickly Moldova and Ukraine make their demands and threaten to kill Russian citizens. And we are the strongest. Everyone should be scared. Ooh. The Kremlin will wait for mass protests against the military in Crimea, who are devouring the resources of the peninsula into three throats, and they themselves are afraid of the thought of going 100 km to the Kakhovsky Reservoir. and provide citizens of the Russian Federation with water.

    Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, in the next few years we will have 14 new nuclear submarines of the Borey-A projects

    I wonder how it will turn out? request How many years is this in the next few years? In good times (I think when there were no crises, pandemics, sanctions), one "Borey" was built for 5-6 years. Then it turns out 14 "Boreyev" will be built for 70 years. During this time they will become obsolete 5 times.

    That’s just strange.
    All civilian national initiatives and May decrees have failed.
    And all the military - one achievement after another. And they could not lift the drowned floating dock ...

      Because all of the above is dust in the eye, what are 200 tanks? These are two tank regiments of three battalions, what are 500 armored personnel carriers and 100 BMP-3? These are six motorized rifle regiments. And what is it on the scale of the Russian Federation? Yes, consider nothing, and still need to remind that some of the tanks and armored personnel carriers are not new, but modernized.

      the strategic supersonic missile carrier Tu-160M ​​was built from scratch.

      Lies, it was built from a factory reserve.
      You can't remember the fleet without tears, our oligarchs build yachts with a displacement of a cruiser, but the country cannot build anything larger than a frigate, and they build for five years ...

    Everything is class! All excellent, good Achievements! good yes
    And now, without the "dizziness of success", drawing on the "lessons of the past", pragmatically "let's look at the root" ?!
    After all, our Soviet Union, the recognized world superpower by all, had even more impressive successes in strengthening its enormous military power - no one dared to attack us!
    But our mighty nuclear missile USSR was destroyed, betrayed and sold, by its own "leaders", by their "fifth column"! request
    And the super-duper unprecedented military Power did not prevent this at all, alas! request
    After all, countless, to the place and out of place, repeating the common phrase about allegedly "only two allies of Russia - the army and the navy!", Primitive "leavened patriots" for some reason shortsightedly forget about the multinational Russian population is a cast alloy, whose name is RUSSIAN PEOPLE! HE IS THE MAIN ALLY, THE BASIS and ROD of the Russian State, our common Russian Fatherland! yes

    For a (sad) example, the Soviet Communist Party (its "spotted outgrowth" general secretary, komrenegat "nomenklatura elite" and "nomenklatura national cadres on the ground") in its "perestroika apofigey" quite openly neglected the working Soviet people, our needs and aspirations, and As a result, without popular support, she rolled off the power pedestal (although many ex-"ideological party functionaries" changed their shoes in a jump - "folded party cards under the table", and whole "family dynasties" remained, inseparable suckers, at the "helm of market power" , quickly becoming fabulous multi-billionaire owners of cleverly "grabbed" nationwide "factories, newspapers, ships" built by many generations of our Soviet people!)!
    Our unusually powerful Soviet "army and fleet", like all the rest of the People's Property, went to the enemy kleptorazderiban, but our dear Soviet Union was gone ..... alas !!! request
    So, the obvious rational "brace" conclusion - even if the Russian-bourgeois authorities do not forget about their working people, they are nothing without the support of the people. winked
    Everything requires common sense and a balance of costs (I also know the famous "Napoleonic" proverb about those "who, not wanting to feed their own army, are doomed to feed the army of the invaders", as well as the "Koltovskaya" - about "a good word and a pistol"!), commensurate with available resources!
    And, of course, it is necessary to concentrate on the right goals, avoiding "one-sided blinkering", "hyper-fanaticism" and "gigantomania" ... however, sapienti sat!
    IMHO
    PS I hope that no article of the Russian Criminal Code of this "proletarian parablefasting "did not break (even once more, according to the old Soviet habit, he walked through the text with harsh self-censorship, destroying the" extras "and absolutely obvious" clues to the tongue " smile ), and then I will then (if I avoid the "breaking" of our're coming out "zindan") to my adored Crimea, to the sea, and there will be no way to go ?! winked

      The army and navy must be allies of the working people.

    They will prove it. They are afraid of everything. First they will retreat to the Volga, and then, um! Recently I learned that the commander of the Russian troops in Transnistria (colonel of the Russian Federation) has not been able to go home for 6 years. Moldovans are not allowed to enter the airport. Again. Moldovans do not let the Russian colonel into the airport !!! Aphid! What a buoy do you compare yourself with America all the time! I would look at these Moldovans if it were an American colonel! We will wait with such a creepy policy. Turkey. I always received money from Russia, but only now, under Putin, did I feel the opportunity to build my empire. What, who to be afraid of? Worried Russians?

    In support of what was said.

    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said following talks with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu:
    “We had a discussion on the Ukrainian crisis. The common position is the need to fulfill all the obligations assumed by the parties in accordance with the Minsk agreements. in the message. Press service of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. 29.12.2020/XNUMX/XNUMX.
