Military Review

The British General Staff recognized the superiority of the Russian Armed Forces

30
The armed forces of Great Britain lag behind the Russian in many ways, reports RIA News Statement by Chief of Staff of the United Kingdom Nick Carter.




The general stressed the serious threat posed by Russian cruise missiles successfully used in Syria (obviously, we are talking about "Calibras"). Britain has no protection from them, he notes.

Carter speaks with regret of the reduction of spending on military development and believes that "in recent years, Moscow has been able to demonstrate military capabilities that the United Kingdom can hardly match."

According to the newspaper The Telegraph, the British military, in addition, are concerned about the dominance of Russia in the field of "artillery, electronic warfare and computer technology."

Earlier, the Pentagon, in its new strategy, called rivalry with Russia and China a “fundamental priority” and demanded additional investments to strategically confront these countries. The US military believes that the Russian Federation and the PRC pose a threat to the security and prosperity of the United States.

      The main thing is that the conclusions are made right. And then they will repeat the fate of the Titanic. But they probably don’t take it into account ...

        Indeed, I would say that there is no point in competing in this regard, therefore it is better to stop escalating the situation and not annoy Russia, you will look more whole.

      It is pointless to compare the armies of Britain and Russia. The British Armed Forces are fully integrated into NATO structures, and are only partially self-sufficient. And then it’s correct to compare the British Army, well, for example, with the Central Military District of the Russian Federation

        When the ratings of GDP are posted, Russia lags behind the Britons by many points. And in terms of ratings of the Army, we are ahead of many points. Dissonance however.

          Serious economists have always reacted very negatively to the methodology for calculating GDP, believing that in total GDP shows only the speed of movement of virtual financial assets, and is almost not related to real industry. Things are a little better when calculating GDP (PPP)

            All this is a hoax - GDP including PPP. You need to look at the real indicators of production in liters, tons, pieces of manufactured products.

            What am I talking about? Not about the same? They created the illusion of economic superiority and think that the army is stronger, because there are more "pieces of paper". The bad news is that they are forced to play by their rules. But even under such conditions, our superiority is clear.

    British moneybags for grandmas ...
    so to speak, you won’t give the money, the Russians will come and make bo-bo ... old as the world ...
    and they will give money.

      Well, why not give them money if they don’t bite chickens. They give their bums out for a month as much as I don’t get pensions for ten years. Yes, and they threaten us ... or are we ...?
      Well, that doesn't matter. The capitalists are cursed in one word ..

    The British were always famous for being skillfully insinuating, etching and doing a lot with the wrong hands.
    It was the British who were the first to engage in genocide, it was they who invented the ghetto, but they are very deftly hushing up and varnishing their savage essence.
    They pretend that they are "gentlemen", but they are silent that only in their local club.
    And as one-on-one warriors with Russia, they are like up to another galaxy in a row.

    Now some of our comrades will squeal that joy: "we are stronger." And to compare their defense budget with ours, and then add amers weakly?
    I am all these howls: "we are defenseless and we are now being hooked by a Russian bear," I am sending to a devil- PROPAGANDA. Yes, we have “calibers” and “zircons”, “somewhere” there are, but how many modern surface ships do we have? "Kuzya" we have one and "Petyunya" is no longer a boy.

      Some, especially "refined" natures, do not have enough billions for happiness, while others quite successfully and happily live on quite modest money. With your approach, just considering the NATO budget, you must immediately give up in horror.
      how many modern surface ships do we have?
      For the country's defense, it’s enough. Not enough but enough. But if you conduct military operations in other parts of the world, as "Western friends" are used to doing, then yes, not enough. Or do you propose to capture the whole world?

      It will not be enough, we still have to make tanks, guns, missiles, and then the British (judging by your lamentations) have more tanks than in Russia.

    As usual, scattering ashes on the head of the military budget isn’t enough to cut ... British aircraft to Russian, like cancer to the moon and an increase in their budget will not change the situation.

    In general, I can’t finish the puzzle in my head yet. The size of military budgets and the effectiveness of military potential (including all aspects, up to the moral motivation of the reservists). And we still continue to "prank" our "hucksters" in uniform. Does it make sense to play "military confrontation"? A “normal war” is just yesterday or even the day before yesterday for our European partners and not because of technological equipment, but precisely as far as possible. Maybe already in peace? In my opinion it’s cheaper for them to be friends than to “resist”.

    Carter regrets spending on military development

    Everything is as always, nothing new. We are afraid of Russia, give money so as not to be afraid.

    ------------------------------
    I wonder why these ratings do not compare the army of Saudi Arabia and the army of the Hussites? There the dissonance would be catastrophic.

    The US military believes that the Russian Federation and China pose a threat to US security and prosperity.
    Who would doubt that. Only the most important can not understand. If you get into a fight all the time, be prepared for what you can get in the face.

    They want hegemony, and hegemony without brute force will not work. Anglo-Saxon GDP is falling in relation to the new economies of Asia. And therefore, without military force they will simply be who they really are. They will not be able to back up their ambitions for Argentina in the Falklands, for Spain in Gibraltar, and elsewhere.

    Yes, if it weren’t for the USA, your military might just be zilch ...... and indeed, if it weren’t for the USA, no one would have thought of a war and there would have been no arms race ....

    “In recent years, Moscow has been able to demonstrate military capabilities that the UK can hardly meet”
    It’s good if they really think so and it’s not from the heading "British scientists have established ...". But on the other hand, in this case, the assaults on Russia (political, economic ...) will only intensify. And at such a pace, the World will still come to war.

    In my opinion, the superiority of the Russian Armed Forces over the Anglicos is not so hot a compliment to us.
