NI named 10 the most powerful weapons in the Russian Federation and NATO

National Interest magazine published its version of the ten most deadly weapons of Russia and NATO (five from each side), trying to determine which side might have an advantage.


NI named 10 the most powerful weapons in the Russian Federation and NATO


“The Alliance is coping with opponents who have outdated air defense systems and weak offensive capabilities, and do not have air force. At the same time, it is difficult to say what results the alliance will show in combat with full determination and a well-trained opponent who is armed with modern military equipment, such as Russia, ”the article cites. RIA News.

Iskander complex.

"The range of destruction of the Russian Iskander-M missile system is 400 kilometers, while the missile is capable of carrying various types of 700-kilogram warheads. The circular deviation of the rocket does not exceed five meters. Due to these properties, this system is a mortal danger for airfields, rear points and other fixed infrastructure, ”the article says.

Su-27 and its modifications.

“The size, range, speed and maneuverability of the Su-27 family make this fighter a deadly platform. Su-27 with all its appearance shows how dangerous it is, ”the author writes.

It is noted that "the airframe is well adapted to modernization", in addition, "the speed and heavy body of the fighter allow it to strike a powerful blow and then escape before it can be intercepted."

SA-C-400.

“There are several types of missiles for the C-400, and each of them is designed to hit air targets at different distances. The maximum damage range is 400 kilometers, ”the magazine said.

According to the author, "shorter-range missiles have improved capabilities for hitting fast and maneuvering targets."

The system of sensors of the complex "is considered extremely effective, especially since Russia can create defense zones using C-400 in almost any theater of military operations."

Submarine class "Pike-B".

“When in the USSR the 80-90-s were built submarines of the Pike-B class, they were extremely secretive and subtle submarines. Later, Russian designers improved them with additional noise reduction technology, ”the article says.

“The most important thing is that the Pike-B boats carry an impressive arsenal of weapons, including torpedoes and cruise missiles, which are capable of hitting both sea and land targets,” writes the magazine.

Russian special forces.

“Russian special forces are an impressive military-political tool that can influence the course of the battle in all areas of military operations. SWAT is not "weapons“but it represents one of the most effective means in the Russian arsenal,” the newspaper notes.

Virginia submarines.

As for the military equipment of the NATO countries, the Virginia submarine is worth noting. “It is planned that the United States will purchase nine such submarines over the next five years. In addition, the module of various combat loads of these submarines will be upgraded, which will allow to triple their strike potential, ”the author writes.

F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.

The magazine reminds that "the production of Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike fighters is several years behind schedule, and the plane itself suffers from endless technical failures."

"However, over time, the F-35 has a chance to become a formidable weapon," NI believes, noting that "among the advantages of this fighter are low-profile and powerful electronic warfare systems."

Bomber B-3.

“Russia has achieved considerable success in developing air defense systems, in particular, low-frequency radars capable of tracking low-profile aircraft, so the United States creates a long-range strike bomber that will threaten targets in the depths of Russian territory,” the publication said.

“The LRS-B program is completely secret, and many are protesting against it today,” but the developers promise that “the new bomber will be able to overcome even the densest air defense system.”

Tank "Leopard 2".

“The Leopard 2A7 tank will form the basis of the Bundeswehr and the armies of other NATO countries,” the magazine writes. The machine was “enhanced by an extended L55 cannon with improved characteristics that allow it to deal with heavily armored tanks the adversary. "

“Due to a shortage of tungsten ammunition, the German military doubts that its shells will be able to penetrate the armor of the last Russian tanks. The shells may not have enough kinetic energy to destroy the Russian tanks T-80, T-90, and T-14 Armata, ”the article says.

Helicopter AH-64 Apache.

“The Boeing AH-64 Apache attack helicopter began to enter service with the NATO countries in 1986. He is able to carry on board 16 anti-tank missiles Hellfire, which is enough to destroy an entire tank company in one gulp, ”writes NI.

Summing up, the author expresses the hope that the Russian and NATO weapons he described "will be used solely as a deterrent factor."

        I would say more - it says "In God we trust" on the dollars. And the same thing, only in a different language, was stamped on the belt badge of every Wehrmacht soldier - "Gott mit uns". But I don't remember something like that here ... I remember the star with the hammer and sickle, but “Gott mit uns” - no.

        Of course, I am for any religion other than a hunger strike. But in battle, hope is no longer on God, but on the native AKS ...Somehow more helps. And after BV, if you stay alive, you can also pray. Optional...

So that I had to chew on a tie ...

Although this do ..., they specially prepared in the bins of the State Department in order to unleash the leash in time - then it was in America that the elections were planned and the Republicans urgently needed to transfer the throne to the Republican, so they muddied up with this "aggression", so that in the next once to play the card of bad Russia, but no luck, and the keys to the Oral .. oval cabinet floated away to the democrats! Of course, we also got the same benefit from this - we officially moved the borders and fortified it with our troops from Sochi, where the Olympics were planned, as much as Abkhazia ...

            In my opinion, it was a check for weakness, they would have rescued, the same motive and self-capture would have begun in other places, they have been trying in all sorts of ways, through the media, oligarchs, through youth organizations, through stuffing stuff and polls of the type such as - maybe it’s necessary It was Leningrad to surrender and there wouldn’t be so many victims, but someone seriously believes that he would now go to Mercedes and drink the German Beers. When we reached a certain degree of suppression, we decided to check the combat readiness through a third country, we made a mistake at first, but they didn’t have everything smoothly in such operations, even rather the opposite.

            I think that this is not the last time he has surfaced - the State Department’s gold reserve. They believe that he can still be a politician. For me - no matter how cool he is, but if he chews a tie, he’s not my candidate .... Something, then, in my head is not as it should be. I never chewed a tie ....

    Most likely these types of weapons will NEVER be found in direct combat. Can the USA conquer the Russian Federation? NO .RF can conquer the United States? NO . What is the point of comparison? If these weapons meet in battle, then this will be a neutral territory as it was in the entire modern history of the existence of these powers. In the case of another development, completely different types of weapons will come into play, a more destructive nuclear one. And either side avoids this .A so it will be bad somewhere in Syria, Ukraine, as was always the case in Afghanistan, Vietnam, for example. Pysy NATO without the USA, I only get a smile from such a thought and even more so then there is NOTHING to compare.

    what results will the alliance show in battle with full determination and a well-trained opponent armed with modern military equipment - such as Russia

    I think that commenting is not necessary. Therefore, a comparison of technology is a good thing, but the soldier and his professionalism play a major role. The Koreans drove the Americans out, the Vietnamese kicked them out of their country, although they were less armed (I do not take into account our military-technical assistance in this case).

    Another extremely unprofessional comparison from Western "exers". Well, to hell with him. One thing pleases - now we are no longer compared with Poland, Germany or the United States, but with the whole of NATO. And, finally, they stopped comparing budgets, because hitting the sly red face would be painful and far from being a budget.
    True, the other day the Minister of Defense of the English island said that he still does not consider Russia to be an equal rival, but this can only be treated with surgical intervention in the cerebellum ..
