National Interest: Russia decided to focus on the development of ground forces

30
In its new armament plan for 2018-2027, the Kremlin will focus on spending on ground forces. Earlier, the Russian authorities paid more attention to modernization fleetwrites The National Interest. Article leads InoTV.




Such attention to ground weapons systems is explained by the recent "Russian experience in Ukraine" and the fact that most of the equipment is already ready for mass production, the newspaper notes.

Tanks T-90 and T-14 Armata, infantry fighting vehicles Kurganets-25 and Boomerang are expected to enter service over the next eight years. Although the number of Armata tanks may be limited due to the high cost of production,
says the senior researcher at the American Center for Naval Analysis, Dmitry Gorenburg.

In parallel with this, Russia will continue to produce new artillery and rocket systems in order to replace the “Soviet legacy”. In particular, the new prospective installation “Coalition” should replace the self-propelled howitzer “Msta”

“At the same time, despite the speed with which the modernization continues — the Russian ground forces receive new reconnaissance and surveillance systems, as well as electronic warfare, not everything goes smoothly. Russia is trying to introduce the doctrine of the setcentric war, which implies the creation of a single information and communication space for coordinated actions of all forces, but is still behind the planned schedule, ”the material says.

There are problems with tactical automated ground control systems,
assures the analyst.

According to him, the Russian military "have mixed feelings about this technology and may decide that it needs to be improved before widespread use." In this case, the development of means of conducting a network-centric war, they "will have to be postponed until 2027 year.

In general, the Russian army has “enough power to contain all its neighbors in the post-Soviet space with conventional weapons, but the Kremlin still has to rely on a nuclear arsenal to stop China or NATO,” the magazine notes.

In terms of impact on military capabilities, Russia is already strong enough to defend itself in a conventional war against any adversary and defeat any neighboring country, with the exception of China. Thus, the new weapons program will be aimed at keeping up with the technological improvements made by its competitors (members of NATO and China),
adds Gorenburg.

In other words, despite the uneven pace, Russia continues to catch up with its rivals. However, it "will lag behind the United States and, possibly, China in certain areas," the publication concludes.

        Alexander hi The site is often referred to it. But the whole point is that this publication is not some kind of top-end or something. In the West there are more serious analysts.

        It is logical! Russia in the center of the WORLD. We are close to everywhere. Here by land and get to adversary. Do not drown the land, in contrast to the Zaluzh giant irons. Here they will be sinking as cute. Well, we’ll easily get into the puddle through the tiny strait. It is not for nothing that we strengthen and train the land grouping in the Arctic. And with the fleet, that sea, that air, everything is in order with us.

        More likely from the future. Otherwise, how to explain this passage
        In this case, the development of means of conducting a network-centric war they "will have to postpone until 2027"
        Is it just to postpone it for ten years and that's all? No, senior scientist Dmitry Gorenburg clearly knows something! laughing

        [quote = Kent0001] They analyze the information from the network and present it as significant analytical data. [/ quote Let me note that in fact there are no methods of mathematical analysis that really takes into account the totality of the interaction and development of processes in one direction or another. And what does exist? There is a subjective analysis of people who use the potential of their brain, but in reality, basing their analysis on the collection of statistical data, that’s all. Moreover, machine methods using binary code are not capable of analysis, since they do not work as a technological tool for processing super-large data.

    Here's a joke about changing socks. Right to left.
    The "coalition" will indeed change 2C19 ... in the artillery of the "senior commanders". After the modernization, the freed-up vehicles will replace 2С3 in the “lower level”, regimental, brigade and division artillery


    In this case, the development of means of conducting a network-centric war they "will have to postpone until 2027."

    The very "network-centric war" from which the Americans themselves are already starting to move away?

    Yes, really ..... analysts. It’s even funny, we can lag behind China only in quantitative terms. NATO is generally an inflatable raft. On the other hand, it is even more profitable for us if our main opponents rely on such inferences.

    The competence of Western analysts is their problem. They believed that while Putin is watching the winter Olympics in Sochi, a coup could be made in Ukraine. And it - PUK and Crimea fell off. For the United States, it was a big bummer.

    In principle, the logical direction of development of today.
    In aviation, existing technologies are put into operation.
    The fifth generation is being worked out.
    A lot of work has already been done in the fleet, well, there is some hudder in the production of turbines for the fleet, they are working hard on this.
    At the moment, there are no fundamental obstacles to the development of ground forces and means.
    Yes, and funds for the development of land weapon systems require less.
    All in good time.

    "The Russian military has mixed feelings about this technology and ... hereinafter." The level of technology is naturally high, but poor skills in using it and cause its rejection. Especially in the higher link.

    National Interest: Russia decided to focus on the development of ground forces

    Actually the way it is. I would like more attention to our aerospace component, but no, looking at the pace of updating / re-equipping the aircraft fleet without any buildup (increase) with the formation of new aviation units (only as part of the reorganization). The likely superiority of the enemy in the aviation component will most likely be leveled by the military and object-based ground air defense systems, which we are traditionally strong in.

    Well, NATO, let’s say, is not so eager to try to attack the Russian Federation, but what does China have to do with it? Despite their number, they are not suicides.
