Russian military industry switched to round-the-clock operation

After the start of the Russian special operation on Ukrainian territory, it turned out that the problem of the lack of drones is one of the most important in Russia. It is she who is a serious factor in deterring the offensive of the Russian army in Ukraine. But Moscow is trying to solve this problem, Ukrainian-Russian public figure Oleg Tsaryov writes on his Telegram channel, referring to Andrey Elchaninov, First Deputy Chairman of the Military Industrial Commission of the Russian Federation.

A functionary from the military industry said that in the course of the SVO, some enterprises of the Russian "defense industry" were transferred to a three-shift system, i.e. round the clock operation. Now the industry is loaded with reserve capacities, all the accumulated technical and human resources are involved.

At the same time, Elchaninov listed the shortage of which components the Russian military industry is experiencing because of the anti-Russian sanctions of the West and its satellites. It turned out that Russian enterprises faced restrictions (refusals) in the supply of electronic component base, bearings, raw materials and materials used in the manufacture of rubber products, rubbers, adhesives, mixtures and paints. He clarified that now the logistics of obtaining these goods is changing.

In addition, Elchaninov admitted that Russia could start buying foreign UAVs through states that normally belong to Russia.

You can not only buy the same drones in China, but also look in other countries that remain our partners. Such consultations have been and continue

- Tsarev quoted Elchaninov's words.

On his own behalf, Tsarev added that Russia now has an excess of foreign currency, and many countries produce UAVs, including China and Iran.

I have no doubts about Iran

- summed up Tsarev.

    Russia now has an excess of foreign currency, and UAVs are produced by many countries, including China and Iran.

    But Turkey with its bayraktars was forgotten. She, as they said, sells them, as it is profitable. Nothing personal. Business.
    There is our weapon against ours. Well, Turkish against Turkish - what's stopping you?
    And at the expense of an excess of currency - can you think about the development of the electronics industry? And then here: "we faced restrictions (failures) in the supply of electronic component base." This vicious circle needs to be broken somehow.

      Turkey again transferred 17 bayraktars to Kyiv and is unlikely to sell to the Russian Federation. It is easier to negotiate with Iran, India, North Korea and other countries.

        The Turks will sell, the advertisement is powerful, - the Russian Federation buys, just order and pay, That's why our noses turned up until the fried rooster pecked, it's on the conscience of the supreme Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation ... They themselves let out soap bubbles, but in fact NOTHING, a complete failure. ..Who from the RF Ministry of Defense is responsible for such failures, no one ....

      On Turkish bayraktars - Canadian optics, I don’t know about engines now, they promised to make their own, electronics seem to be American. So you can't buy from the Turks.

      If only at the behest of a pike. It's time to forget about the quick solution of this issue. It is impossible for a year, and even for five years, to take and start riveting an ekb. Thunder struck, now you can not be baptized - it will not help. There is such a word IN ADVANCE, that is, it was necessary to think and do 15 years ago, or at least 10. And after the 14th year, this had to be done in the first place. Because the processor is not a projectile - you can’t grind it on a machine. Already a bunch of articles have been written about how it's not easy to do everything. It's simple - it's in the head of an official or jingoistic patriots. It's time not to litter with big words and money, but to do things. There is only one problem - there is no one.

    I have no doubts about Iran

    We have arrived ... we are buying gas turbines from Iran, to cars, UAVs, and in exchange for metals, some other raw materials ... it’s good that it’s not wax and hemp (although what the hell is not joking)
    And where did everything come from in Iran under the conditions of decades of sanctions - both engines for UAVs and electronics, etc., paint and varnish and rubber products? And they also seem to have oil to hell, they could, like us, secretly pour from tanker to tanker on the high seas and not fill their heads with all sorts of "nonsense".

      I won’t say anything about Iran, I just don’t know. But let me tell you about our military. As recently as 10 years ago, maybe a little more. Our military treated UAVs extremely dismissively, they called it ersatz planes and toys. That is why there was such a problem with the production of UAVs in the early 10s, and only the events in Syria made me take a more or less sober look at this topic, and UAVs went into the troops, in more or less tangible quantities. Although, as events show, the apparatuses of some groups are absent in the army as a class. Judging by the video from the field, small-class drones appear in the troops, but I don’t know what kind of devices they are, whether they are adapted civilians, or special ones. In general, there are a lot of questions about the armament of our army, not to mention the Republicans. Extremely poor equipment with thermal imagers and night vision devices, but what about steel helmets and three-rulers? Have the weapons factories been so killed that they cannot provide modern weapons, at least for the belligerent contingent, in three months? Just 200-300 thousand people? I can only assume that the main defense enterprises have been optimized to such an extent that they are unable to seriously increase production, since they simply do not have reserve capacities.

        Moreover, it is actually recognized that China does not supply anything from where there are components of the states that have imposed sanctions against Russia, so as not to fall under the sanctions itself. Well, Hope for Iran shows what the ass is the production of UAVs in Russia, despite the encouraging urakryakism in the media about this. On YouTube, in one of the latest broadcasts of the "Deceived Russian", they show how the Minister of Defense is shown an alleged enterprise built near Moscow to build an UAV. Look, it’s still a spectacle, and I honestly don’t understand how our military specialists haws about this? How does it roll? Or are there such specialists in Russia that they can’t tell the difference? Or at the bottom? Well, in the same place on YouTube there are videos in which kakly disassemble UAVs and unexploded rockets from Russia. Look, very instructive.... yes

          patriotism about UAVs is only in the media, there are also surprisingly hilarious pearls from "experts" about UAVs. One enterprise near Moscow will not solve the shortage of UAVs. Moreover, as far as I understand, the construction there has not yet been completed - it seems like they started building last year, it's not some kind of warehouse to bungle up in six months. But you still need optics, but where are our Zenith, ZOMZ, LOMO? In history and museum, only

      Chemezov is a "pontorez"! That "Rostec" - that "Rosnano" (Ryzhiy has already dumped) ... I know what I'm talking about. What a bunch of his "defective managers" led by Artyakov sent to our factory before handing us over to the French - don't worry, mother ... Stupid, greedy thieves! Fri is the day of departure, Mon is the day of arrival ... Three (THREE !!!) working days at the Kruzakov factory they bought themselves ... punks.
      When they kicked Artyakov from the factory (by governor to Samara!) - Samara howled six months later ... I don’t know where this Chemezovsky “manager” is now, and I don’t want to know. So what are UAVs? What thermal imagers? What are you guys talking about?
      By the way, about thermal imagers. Irina Allegrova bought these thermal imagers with her own money. Solovyov told about this - she got through to him. Something about this Peskov is silent - more and more about the "pozriot" Vanya and others like him ranting. Kindred spirits...

    Wah! It is always strange when an article about our drones or missiles is illustrated with photos of Amer products.

    But in fact it is true, the "lunar landscape" (they wrote) in Ukraine requires more and more new ammunition and equipment. It is strange that factories are only now transferring to 3 shifts.

      - Unfortunately, such a "disease" as "lunar landscape" is treated not by providing an abundance of shells - but by high-quality professional training in firing! - And what is the level of military training of our respective military specialists today - you can see from the constantly shown reports, which show the "results of firing" of these "specialists" - the results of firing - at least at ships, at least at enemy imported 155 mm howitzers, at least at the positions of the Nazis! !!
      - Or maybe it's Ukrainian agents who deliberately spread "such reports" - in order to distort reality? - Maybe it's just a "fake" such????? - Oh, it would be better if it was a fake!

      Do you know what is actually the reason for the current situation, when many times the strong Russian army is actually marking time in one place? And the difference is simple - the Ukrainian army was trained by NATO and American specialists, who will not let dust in their eyes, they will fuck you until you meet the standard, and they will fuck everyone from a soldier to a general. But in Russia? And in Russia they only fuck a soldier, and they fuck sergeants and foremen. And above the major, the sinecure is already coming - they don’t do shit, they only do replies. And Russian colonels and generals ... just look at their faces at a meeting (available on YouTube) and everything becomes clear ... That is why the Ukrainian artillery covers targets from the first salvo, hits the target, and the Russian one makes a "lunar landscape" around goals....

          the fact that "untrained meat" is thrown into battle is one of the tasks of those very instructors. And their main task is to cause as many casualties as possible on both sides and the maximum destruction of infrastructure. Therefore, everything that happens, everything fits into the paradigm of events. And yet, if you look closely, it is obvious that the same artillerymen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, having the same equipment as the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, actually work many times more efficiently. And yet we (I hope) have not crossed paths with the most modern Western art systems with their attendants ...

        - Yes, just covers the feeling of woeful bewilderment; when you see the demonstration and the results of the firing of our batteries !!! - And then - as you hear the reason - the same thing - they say, "there are such fortified positions", "multi-meter concrete fortifications" and so on! - And then they show the positions taken - ordinary earthen trenches, log dugouts, etc.!
        - And solid "lunar landscapes" - "firing results" of our field "wheel artillery" and self-propelled guns - who taught our calculations and crews like that; who conducted classes with them and trained them in conducting an artillery fire system ??? - What "specialists" trained them ??? - The Americans and the Armed Forces of Ukraine are already well aware of the quality of training of our gunners !!! - Again, all successes are due to the heroism and dedication of our soldiers !!!
