According to a newspaper source, the HPV-2027 will most likely be signed by the president this week. If that happens, 22 December will be officially announced. The government has made the last amendments to the program on December 14.
“The development of the HPV-2027 has been carried out over the past three years. Initially, the ten-year program was supposed to come into force in 2016, however, due to the unstable economic situation, Vladimir Putin postponed its adoption for two years. The economic situation has not become simpler, but the political situation dictates its own conditions, ”writes the publication with reference to the interlocutor.
It is reported that in the new GPV "the Defense Ministry will receive the most on rearmament - around 19 trillion rubles, the rest of the agencies (Ministry of Internal Affairs, FSB, SVR and Rosgvardiya) - over 3 trillion rubles."
According to the newspaper, among the priorities of the HPV-2027 will be the nuclear deterrence system, high-precision weapon, weapons on the "new physical principles" (hypersound) and the development of general-purpose forces.
The latter “were clearly underfunded in the previous period,” the source said. Ground forces should receive new military air defense systems (including those being developed as part of the Standard Development Design Bureau), Tanks T-90 and T-14 Armata, infantry armored vehicles Kurganets-25, and Boomerang armored personnel carriers. The emphasis will also be placed on “adapting weapons for the Arctic territories, in particular, we will talk about the S-300B4 anti-aircraft missile system and the Tor-M2 anti-aircraft missile system,” the source added.
In terms of nuclear deterrence systems, it is planned to purchase air-launched cruise missiles, submarine-launched ballistic missiles, and ground-based intercontinental carriers.
“So, in 2018–2027, the new strategic solid-fuel complexes RS-26 Rubezh and the heavy liquid RS-28 Sarmat (carrier of hypersonic blocks - product 4202) will be adopted. In part aviation purchases of Su-30SM and Su-35 multi-functional fighters, as well as Su-34 front-line bombers (all of these planes participated in the Syrian campaign) should continue, the first purchase of a batch of promising Su-57 front-line aviation complex, 24 MiG-35 fighters, as well as a batch of Tu-160M2 strategic missile carriers will be acquired, ”the material says.
It is also reported that the purchases of helicopters will be reduced, but mass production of the C-500 Prometheus and Buk-M3 complexes, unmanned aerial vehicles and the new Razdan space optical reconnaissance system will be deployed in the VKS.
In addition, more than ten development projects (R & D) are planned for the creation of promising ships. The construction of submarines, the modernization of ships, and the supply of modern aircraft to naval naval aviation and coastal missile complexes to the naval coastal forces will also continue. Planned further development of groups of ships - carriers of high-precision weapons.
The publication said that in the coming decade, emphasis will be placed on the construction of ships of the near-sea zone, equipped with high-precision weapons, including cruise missiles.
