US analysts recognized the leadership of the Russian military in three areas

36
There are at least three key areas in which Russia has a military advantage over the United States, said Lisa Sawyer Semp, senior researcher at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).
The first direction is the ability to restrict and prevent access to a certain territory (the concept of anti-access and area denial, A2 / AD), the second is combined hostilities in which various branches of the military take part, and the third direction is cyberwar and electronic warfare , quotes Lisa Sawyer Samp Edition of The National Interest.


US analysts recognized the leadership of the Russian military in three areas


In their material, the authors focused precisely on the first paragraph in relation to the possible opposition of Russia and the United States in Europe. A2 / AD is the concept of deterring the enemy at a distance with the help of an armament complex, when an attempt to invade any zone will inevitably lead to noticeable damage. In modern realities, it is primarily about air defense systems, cruise missiles and other means of remote destruction.

Philip Breedlove, the former commander of the European command of the US armed forces, said in the summer that the US army relies too heavily on its air force, which in fact most likely will not be enough to solve the A2 / AD problem. Therefore, he called for increasing the ground force grouping in Europe. It is noteworthy that the very existence of the Russian zones A2 / AD General called "offensive."

Evelin Farkas, who until recently held the position of Assistant US Secretary of Defense for Russia, Ukraine and Eurasia, in turn noted: although the Russian defense budget is significantly inferior to the US, the available funds are spent quite efficiently.

They expand their capabilities in certain key areas, such as cruise missiles, air defense systems, and so on. This causes us problems.

      What else will happen? Today they not only call the existence of Russian A2 / AD zones “offensive”, but the very existence of sovereign Russia is extremely offensive to them.

        So it stretches back to the time of Ivan VI. And this is if you do not dig further into the ages.

            It’s with us that he is “Terrible”, and with them he is “Ivan the Terrible” - “Ivan the Terrible” ... Well, the attitude is appropriate.

      Very good important question! They do not recognize their backlog in aviation, armored vehicles and artillery, engineering and sapper engineering. Do we need to prove it to them before the war? This is not as straightforward as we think, entertaining them with our useful military games on combat equipment, without showing the latest samples and prototypes. We should do their best to secret and show only the modernized models of equipment of the Soviet Army, and so far the Ministry of Defense is doing so. But the modernization in some models is half-hearted - or does it seem to me that way? It seems that it should produce a greater effect on the public. For example - heavy machine guns. They already have in some places on the video MULTIPLE samples. We have them, but they still don’t work on the external effect. And it would be worth their show too

    That is, in fact, an advantage in defensive armament and systems.
    So what's the catch ???
    They will ask for more money for the ento business, or they will develop offensive weapons, to overcome the Schaub and guaranteed to run into “aggressive” Russia.
    Let's see in short. Why are there "doves of the world" from the Pentagon, Congress and the White House conceived ???

      A Th conceived, it is clear that. Since in real hostilities, they are not rivals, as they themselves acknowledge, they will bet on what they have perfected. Namely, the fifth column and the shattering of Russia from the inside. Elections on the nose. And then there are all sorts of Navalny, Sobchachki, the "Echo of Moscow", liberal economists, humanists of all stripes, "fighters for the rights" of people and animals, green, blue, pink and the rest of the city.

        C'mon, what is the fifth column and all sorts of dogs are bulk ... not serious, statistical error.
        I can really admit that the power (ruling figures) can change only as a result of the "palace coup" !!!
        And I wouldn’t let green ones under one comb with the rest of the rainbow. They have real environmental fighters, and this is important for all of us, for the future.

          You may not even allow it, it is almost always the case. Well, or else as an option, the power may change as a result of direct aggression of another state, but with respect to Russia, no one will do this, everyone has a small intestine. It is clear that all these "all sorts of dogs are bulky", a statistical error, but at least they are well-known to everyone, and their connections are easy to trace. Which of the powers that be has their roofs and finances. And about the “green”, I, too, twenty-five years old, I also thought that they were idealists, so to speak, “knights without fear and reproach” for the environment. But today, even young children know that the community of "greens" has long been sold to the very corporations that have ruined the whole world and are their effective tool in the competition.

            I know that for the greens, as an organization, the statement is quite correct - whoever pays for the girl dances her !!! Just really met the green t.s. "pure water" ... obsessed with ecology and our future, therefore I prefer not to smear everyone with one tar !!! There are normal - obsessed people, give them power, so we would have returned to the Stone Age ... to the natural t.s. existence!

          palace coup

          It’s quite realistic, let’s see in February, it’s kind of like an “ultimatum” to offshore oligarchs ends. And about Sobchak, you should not, she could well gather young House-2. Like, he’ll give it to all voters ... So it can well be just above the statistical error.

            Ksenia Anatolyevna certainly has an audience, Navalny and others like him, too !!!
            It’s just that the elections are completely “on the nose” and a significant part of this audience will not be able to reach the age limit ... just such a law, nothing personal.
            Protest electorate? Of course, we can succeed with it, because the CA advertises itself under the column - AGAINST EVERYONE.
            For example, I can vote against everyone, I don’t like anyone .... but for Count KA, under this sauce ... no, I don’t want to!

        Despite the fact that in our country corruption, even at the official level, is recognized as the main brake on the economy, and if a decent part of the budget is being stolen, what kind of defense budget effectiveness can we talk about?

          This does not mean that they steal more from us. In all countries, corruption is the main brake on the economy, but this is not true; the main brake on the economy of most countries is external influence from the United States.

    No matter how vigorously the speeches of the Pentagon generals may sound, they still seem to really appreciate their chances. This is the tactical concept of A2 / AD. Until the Americans are confident in the destruction of our arsenal of the first wave of missiles by 101%, they will not be guaranteed otvetku, they will not attack the Russians.
