Sell, but do not forget about the needs of your army!



The purchase of modern weapons even for rich countries can not afford, what can we say about Belarus, which is the only European country that systematically reduces the size of the military budget. Assistance could be provided by Russia, which has immeasurably great potential, but the lack of production capacity at the enterprises of the Russian military industrial complex, along with economic difficulties, and sometimes not a pragmatic, but purely business-like approach by the Russians, have become a serious obstacle to the implementation of programs to re-equip the Belarusian army.

This situation can be rectified, at least partially, by the power of the defense-related enterprises of Belarus, which are part of the structure of the State Military-Industrial Committee of the Republic.

The Belarusian defense industry, along with the implementation of the modernization programs of the existing samples of the VVST, have launched the production of navigation instruments, flight systems, communications equipment, antenna devices, radio stations, computing systems, automation systems, software, optics and much more.

A number of promising new types of weapons and military equipment have been created and mastered in Belarus. Among them: communication systems and information transfer, portable digital radio stations, electronic warfare and radar (Vostok, Rosa-RB), Thunderstorm jamming complex, radionavigation and GPS Navigation systems jamming complex, new ZRK and small weapon. The modernization, combined with a major overhaul, of almost all radar stations in service with the Armed Forces of Belarus has been completed. New samples of BLA “Bercut-1”, “Bercut-2”, “Griff-100” have appeared. Brought to production readiness and the robotic weapon system "Adunok". In addition, a very significant event was the adoption of the Polonez long-range missile system.

The specialists of MZKT, JSC in a short time have developed and prepared for release a light-armored combat vehicle “Lys” and V-1. In the current year, the upgraded BTR-70MB1 was adopted.

Implementation of programs to extend the life of existing weapons continues. The Su-25 and MiG-29 aircraft have been mastered and are being repaired and modernized, the Grad’s MLRS BM-21 upgraded to Belgrade’s BM-21-M aircraft. As a result, the activities of defense enterprises contributed to the adoption by the Armed Forces of Belarus about 900 units of the newest, modernized and repaired models of weapons and military and special equipment.

But, as in the case of the purchase of Russian weapons, the main constraint on the process of re-equipping the Belarusian army due to the potential of its own military-industrial complex is more than a modest economic potential of the country.

The necessary funds could be sought through the export of military and dual-use technologies. And cooperation between Belarus and Azerbaijan can be a good help to increase export earnings. According to the assumption of the Belarusian military expert Alexander Alesin, Baku can become one of the largest buyers of domestic weapons in recent years.

It is worth noting that the military-technical cooperation of Belarus with Azerbaijan lasts more than fifteen years. For a long period of time, Baku was one of the main buyers of Minsk of Soviet-made weapons and military equipment from the arsenals of the former Belarusian Military District. The negotiations of the Chairman of the State Military-Industrial Committee of the Republic of Belarus, Major General Oleg Dvigalev with Colonel-General Hasanov Zakir Asker oglu on current issues of the Belarusian-Azerbaijani military-technical cooperation, which took place on October 9, allowed the expert community to talk about new contracts. And the newest Belarusian rocket fire system “Polonez” can become one of the applicants for export.

Of course, arms exports are vital for our country. The main thing is that GVPK enterprises do not become a “cash cow” and do not start working exclusively for export to the detriment of their Armed Forces. With all this, it is always necessary to take into account the needs of your army, and not promote profitable for sale models of weapons and military equipment.

Take for example the armored vehicle "Cayman". Everyone is happy with the car - and speed, and weapons, and armor. However, the Cayman fits in organically only for special operations forces, which are armed with wheeled military vehicles. For military reconnaissance units characterized by tracked vehicles with comparable tanks maneuverability and powerful weapons.

The attempts undertaken by the state military industry to introduce such vehicles for military intelligence are certainly welcome. But it is necessary to take into account the specifics of the ground forces. The replacement of the BRM-1K armored reconnaissance vehicles in the combat units is already overdue. But you need to change to similar samples, but not to "Cayman." Moreover, it is necessary to install all specific samples of electronic equipment and reconnaissance equipment, which is not on the advertised car.

The position of the GVPK is clear - it is more economical to upgrade wheel samples of military equipment (lower cost of the original sample, relatively inexpensive units and a much higher export potential). However, it is necessary to take into account the requests of the Armed Forces, including the specifics of the armed forces.

    Some, just, ode to the Belarusian military-industrial complex. Especially "smiled" Cayman - "everyone is good at the car - and speed, and weapons, and armor resistance." What is this? Subtle sarcasm in a completely ordinary, but rather, a failed machine level mid-20th century? Probably the only decent example - “Polonaise” with its 200 km firing range. And on the other hand, if they take it, then you need to sell and earn "bobos". Probably, there are no special remorse for Belarus with close cooperation with Azerbaijan, the eternal enemy of Armenia, the CSTO ally. Buttsky has some kind of ornate policy. I feel the spinal cord, sell ...

              All this "brotherhood" will come to naught when both parties lose the benefits of the relationship. Simply put - "your shirt is closer to the body." request

                In a word, for Grandma Soros are you ready to join the "crusade" to Moscow? Well, at least frankly. Only now, when they will have you both from the front and the rear, and everyone else will silently watch your "orgasm", you know, this will also be beneficial for someone ... I, in this case, will not sign up for the Minsk militia. You yourself, somehow, yourself .... if the strength is enough. And if not, I’ll light a candle in the church, it won’t do much harm to me.

                  Believe me, I didn’t invent it. This is how our country lives - in any way to obtain resources for survival. And the last thing that Belarusians need is to get involved in some kind of war. And here the extremely perverse policy comes into play. I could tell you what relations with Russia are beneficial for our country, but I’m afraid you will not like it very much. sad

                    Do you want to say "pimple on your ass"? Well, this can be seen with the naked eye. Why is there a secret? Another thing is that the Ukrainian scenario is clearly visible on your horizon. And if the father, with all his kookies, still retains a kind of sovereignty, then he should wobble, and the Europeans will shuffle you for months, or even days. The people, in their mass, are inert and short-sighted, so hundreds of other local Natsiks will be enough to wrap your slippers in the direction of Brussels. The fact that the bulk of the people will be completely unhealthy will not worry the European integrators. In the end - see Ukraine.

                      Old Man is between a rock and a hard place. Russia clearly wants to displace it in order to put a pro-Russian head with all the consequences, and Europe wants to draw Belarus into its realm (see Poland). Why did it happen? Russia stepped on a slippery path - a clear confrontation with the West entailed economic losses. From the end of the zero Belarus had problems with obtaining Russian finances, but since 2014 these problems have become critical. How to solve these problems? Obviously use your geo. the situation and blackmail Russia with its transition to the West, and then if the situation in the Russia / West relations is not resolved, the Old Man will go over to the side of the latter. According to the merged Wikileaks documents, in 2009 our Foreign Ministry was already working on this issue. no

                So close not to say. There is no information in your news about Russia or the conflict in Ukraine in general.

    $ 170 million from Azerbaijan will save the RB army from further degradation (with a comparable estimate compared to neighbors, the cost of the RB army should be from $ 2 to $ 3 billion, instead of the current 0,6), I implore, and the Chinese will sell the Chinese missiles without moustached.

    As for the cayman, golden eagle, neck and other members of the local zoo -
    900 units of the latest, modernized and refurbished
    : this program is from 2011 and what's new there, and that the repainted motorbike is known only to the local Serdyukovs.
