Romanian army is one of the most problematic in NATO

76
The Romanian armed forces today cannot boast of high combat capability, with the collapse of the Warsaw Pact, Bucharest successfully buried a fairly powerful defense industry and left the troops without a modern weapons, says the material channel RT.



In the USSR, Romania was publicly called the “main dissident.” Bucharest was flirting with nationalism and trying to balance between Moscow and the West. At the same time, on the basis of Soviet technology, a developed defense complex appeared in Romania.

“Now the army is experiencing serious equipment problems: still outdated analogues of Soviet equipment are still in service. The country's defense budget is currently just over $ 2 billion (according to this indicator, Bucharest is in the 62-m place in the world), ”the publication says.

About 177 thousand people serve in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Romania.

The Romanian Armed Forces include ground, naval and air force. All types are characterized by weak financing and insufficient technical equipment. Land forces are considered the most combat-ready. Since the time when the country joined NATO (1994), the USA, Switzerland, Germany, France, Spain and Israel began to supply it with armored vehicles.

The MiG-23 and MiG-29 fighters, which until now were considered modern in Romania, were removed from service because of the lack of spare parts and money to acquire them. The Romanian Air Force is based on the Soviet 3-generation fighters of the MiG-21, which were decommissioned in the Russian Federation and other countries.

The Romanian Navy includes 3 frigates, 7 corvettes, 5 minesweepers, 6 rocket boats and 20 patrol vessels. The fleet also has two naval bases, an 4 logistics and logistics center and a technical support center.

      I was not dismissively writing about Her Majesty's fleet. After all, some analysts say the following:
      1 location - US Navy
      2 place - Her Majesty's fleet
      3 Place - Japan's Self-Defense Forces
      4 location - Navy People's Liberation Army of China
      5 place - Indian Navy
      6 location - Navy of the Russian Federation

        And I write for three reasons.
        1. The degree of degradation rolls over (both in historical and moral aspects).
        2. Readiness and morale are a big question.
        3. I DO NOT BELIEVE THESE RATINGS. These ratings are based on the "38 parrots" system. Namely, if you always count in parrots, you will certainly get more.
        Yes, and even if I’m wrong, I’ll write badly about Great Britain. I do not perceive them as a civilization.

            Thank you for your support and a brilliant understanding of the features, accuracy and subtleties of the Russian language. The article that is commented here is called: Romanian army is one of the most problematic in NATO. Keyword "problematic", not about Romanians. There, more than half of the NATO armies fits this word. And my comment was received as if I wrote about the obvious weakness of the UK fleet. I wrote about his PROBLEMS.

                I bet with you. For NATO, it is not the Romanian army that is interesting, but Romania as the territory for the deployment of missile defense. And for the United States, this is a potential buyer of American weapons. And what is there to procrastinate about the power of the Romanian army.

    -------------------------
    By the way, the Gypsies have a very strict hierarchy and there are the initial beginnings of subordination. I saw how the Gypsy team divided the proceeds for the commissioned ferrous metal and how much each was supposed to. But at the same time, an adult young man came up to me in the store and asked me to choose “Cahors” on the wine counter, he simply could not read at all. I think the Romanian army presents a similar sight. And at the same time, Romanians are considered one of the most beautiful women in Europe and this is true.

    If only the Romanian army were problematic, then NATO would be happy. As a result, they scored so many problematic that normal commanders would have already moved off the roof. But the main thing here is as close to the borders of Russia as possible. But these underdeveloped people cannot understand that they are a bargaining chip.

    Romanians need to do everything for Ukraine to join NATO. Then they will no longer be the most problematic army ... smile
