Results of 2021. What has changed in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation


During an expanded meeting of the Collegium of the Ministry of Defense, the head of the department, Sergei Shoigu, reported to President Vladimir Putin that Russia had become the world leader in modern weapons. On average, the level of equipment with them exceeded 70%, and in the nuclear triad, for the first time in history, it reached 89%.


What are the results of the outgoing 2021 for our army? What has changed in the RF Armed Forces in terms of weapons over this period?

Let's start with strategic weapons. The first Strategic Missile Forces regiment in Russia has been re-equipped with the Avangard complex with ICBMs equipped with hypersonic maneuvering warheads. In two more regiments the Yars complexes were on alert.

Strategic aviation was replenished with four modernized Tu-90MS missile carriers. The fleet received nuclear-powered cruisers of the Yasen-M and Borey-A projects.

Speaking of the Navy. In addition to strategic missile carriers, our fleet in 2021 received the Kazan nuclear submarine, the Magadan diesel-electric submarine, 4 ships, 3 coastal missile systems, 10 combat boats, and 17 support vessels.

Ground forces "got hold of" slightly less than 2,5 thousand units of various equipment, including 240 modern and modernized tanks.

Army special forces received the latest Mi-8 AMTSh-VN Sapsan fire support helicopters and Tiger armored vehicles with the Crossbow combat module.

In the current year, 151 samples of aircraft were delivered to the Aerospace Forces, and the main "air premieres" were the "Okhotnik" strike UAV with a narrow nozzle and the promising lightweight multifunctional fifth-generation fighter Su-5 "Shah i mate".

Over 30 models of weapons, including the newest S-500 Prometheus, were received by the air defense / missile defense forces. But that's not all.

New military bases and airfields have been built in the Arctic, and Iskander complexes have been transferred to Novaya Zemlya. At the same time, the main launches of the year were: the defeat by Bulava from a submerged position in the White Sea of ​​a conditional target located at the Kamchatka training ground, the destruction of an old Soviet satellite by a Nudol rocket and salvo firing by hypersonic Zircons.

    Correctly spelled Tu-95MSM. PLARK Kazan 855M project. Tactical number of the ship K-561. In one of the reports of the First Channel on the body kit of the ladder K-561 was the inscription SSGN.

    In the current year, 151 samples of aircraft were delivered to the Aerospace Forces, and the main "air premieres" were the "Okhotnik" strike UAV with a narrow nozzle and the promising lightweight multifunctional fifth-generation fighter Su-5 "Shah i mate".

    The Su-75 could not be delivered to the Aerospace Forces. It was only demonstrated at an exhibition in Dubai. It was not even rolled on the runway due to the lack of an engine. Therefore, it cannot be listed alongside the equipment supplied in the unit. Like the Okhotnik UAV. ...

    The changes are traditionally modest.

    The number of helicopters and armored vehicles is naturally not indicated for reasons of secrecy. Let's admit.

    and the main "air premieres" were the "Okhotnik" strike UAV with a narrow nozzle and promising lightweight multifunctional fighter of the 5th generation Su-75 "Shah and checkmate".

    But here there is an inaccuracy on the verge of charlatanism - "a prefabricated full-size model of a promising aircraft is presented." It will be right.

    For females, the main thing is tactical awareness at the lower levels with the provision of support and supply forces, strategic early warning system at the top, and intelligent support using quasi AI with the ability and the right to automatically respond to real threats within the responsibility loop with the right to assign forces sufficient to perform tasks. The ability to destroy the enemy satellite grouping within a few hours. If in 2022 this is brought to the required level of combat readiness, then it will be possible to consider the achievement of Russia's military power at an exceptional level.

      ESUTZ still does not work properly. No reconnaissance has been restored in an organized form, in the Aerospace Forces and in the Navy. Tactical and operational awareness is impossible without detachment, not to mention strategic awareness.

    It begins with the fact that Shoigu reported to the President on the results of rearmament.
    But I suppose, if the Minister of Defense proposed to the commander-in-chief all the nonsense given by the author below the announcement, he would already be free, like plywood over Paris.
    I would like to know where and for whom all this nonsense ...
