The Russian Defense Ministry hosted the Unified Day of Acceptance of Military Products and Infrastructure Facilities of the Armed Forces. The figures are named, the addresses of the VVST supplies are given, which creates a complete picture of the equipment of our aircraft with modern samples.
Over the past year, more than 3500 prospective units of VVST were supplied to the army and the fleet. Particularly pleased that this is a highly intelligent technology and high-precision weaponthat allowed the Russian Aerospace Forces to successfully fight the militants in Syria.
According to Sergei Shoigu, the state defense order of the 2017 of the year for the supply of new samples was made by 98,5 percent, repair - by 96,7 percent. The Minister noted: “The results achieved indicate that industrial enterprises basically fulfill their obligations”.

The composition of the auxiliary fleet Northern Fleet entered the icebreaker of project 21180 Ilya Muromets. Chernomorets received the coastal tactical complex “Ball”.
The Power of the Terminator
In 2017, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation received 116 operational-tactical missiles of the Kyrgyz Republic Caliber, which performed well in Syria. One hundred high-precision strikes were inflicted on the militants ’targets, the Caliber, X-101, and Kh-55 rocket launchers were used for the most important targets, the Iskander and Tochka-U RCs worked. Strategic aircraft aviation fired 66 missiles at a distance of 500 to 1500 kilometers. Each hit a designated object.
Over 110 airplanes and helicopters, two warships, three brigade sets of the Iskander-M OTRK, nine anti-aircraft missile systems and complexes of various classes, more than 400 armored units, were delivered to the Russian Armed Forces.
At the beginning of last year, the Military-Industrial Courier supported the ex-head of GABTU, Colonel-General Sergey Mayev, with his idea that the Terminator BMPT would be in demand among the troops (“Tank to help”). And we were heard. The contract for the supply of "Terminators" will be executed during the 2018 year. The first batch will arrive in March-April, which was confirmed at Uralvagonzavod, a supplier of new equipment.
It is indicative that this is the first contract of the military department for the purchase of “Terminators”; previously, BMPTs were exclusively export goods. How many cars the troops will receive is not disclosed, but the contract is long-term. His performance is on the conveyor in Nizhny Tagil.
The Terminator BMPT is armed with two 30-2 automatic cannons, two launchers with Ataka-T anti-tank missiles, two AG-42D automatic grenade launchers and a 17-mm machine gun. The machine is very mobile on the battlefield, its MSA of the main armament allows it to detect and recognize small targets at large distances day and night in adverse weather conditions. The crew has three operators, this gives the BMPT the 7,62 degrees survey sector and the ability to hit three objects at the same time.
Serial and even ahead of schedule
Two brigade kits of the Iskander-M operational-tactical missile system (PTRK) and four air defense systems, 183 armored vehicles and equipment, up to 1183 vehicles for various purposes, more than 13 thousands of communications equipment, 433 EW stations arrived in the Russian Federation in the fourth quarter. “In 2017, the Engineering Design Bureau completed the fulfillment of the state contract, the tenth set of Iskander-M OTRK was supplied,” Stepanov noted.
During the VDPC, which was held in the mode of videoconference, the commander of the 2 anti-aircraft missile regiment Colonel Andrei Elizarov reported on the acceptance of the regimental set of the Tor-M933 air defense system. The commander of the 53 anti-aircraft missile brigade, Colonel Sergey Muchkaev, reported on the arrival of the Buk-М3 air defense brigade. The pontoon park PP-2005М arrived at the equipment of the engineering troops, which was confirmed by the commander of the 28 pontoon-bridge brigade Alexey Biryukov.
"Helicopters of Russia" in 2017 put the 72 new and 70 modernized machines to the RF Ministry of Defense 8. In addition, five Mi-5MTV-1-2018 were transferred to the Kazan Optical and Mechanical Plant for the subsequent retrofit of their EW complex. According to GOZ 60, the holding will supply the military department with the 30 order of new machines, including more than 8 of the Mi-28 type ahead of time, a representative of Russian Helicopters said. “We began serial deliveries of Mi-27UB training helicopters, mastered the upgrading of the Ka-2018 naval, and in 38 another project will be added to the list - we plan to transfer to the Russian Defense Ministry the first airborne Mi-2017Т,” Vladislav Savelyev, deputy director general of the holding, said. . He stressed that in XNUMX, some deliveries in the state defense order were made ahead of schedule.
"Ball" in the Baltic
Electronic launches of coastal RK "Ball" were performed on the Baltic coast when checking the combat readiness of the missile unit.
The calculations of the complexes made a march to the landfill. In a given area, they fulfilled the standards for deploying equipment, defining firing data for electronic launches of the Kyrgyz Republic at sea targets and their conditional destruction. The missilemen also worked on the transfer of complexes from the marching to the combat position, and the transfer of the missiles from the transport-loading machine to the launcher. Worked out operational change of position and exit from under the retaliatory strike of a conditional enemy.
The training was conducted according to the plan for checking the combat readiness of the missile unit. It involved up to 50 military personnel and more 10 units of military and special equipment. According to the results of the inspection, the inspectorate of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation was given the honorary title “Shock”. As for the "Ball" complex, it showed itself from the best side. Recall that this RC is designed to protect the coastal defense forces of territorial waters, naval bases and coastal infrastructure and antiamphibious defense of the coast.
"Yarsy" on duty
The Strategic Missile Forces in 2017, 21, a ballistic missile, 19 autonomous launchers, 33 combat duty support vehicles, 7 KP, 310 other components of the complexes.

At 1-th State test space center in Mirny, facilities were built for throwing tests of a prospective stationary base.
On the objects of the Space Forces, the construction of two radars of high operational readiness in Orsk and Barnaul has been completed, installation of technological equipment is being carried out at the facilities of the space safety system.
The Russian "defense industry" has eliminated almost all of the operational flaws of the VVST, identified during their combat use in Syria, and the operational and technical characteristics of individual samples have been enhanced. This activity, Sergei Shoigu stressed, should continue in the light of the tasks assigned by the Supreme Commander. According to the minister, the quality of the main samples of the VVST as a whole meets the requirements, which allows the troops to carry out the tasks effectively.
