“Give me the money, otherwise the Russians will catch us!” The Pentagon predicts the superiority of the Russian army in Europe

The commander-in-chief of NATO forces in Europe, American General Curtis Scaparotti, said that the American contingent in Europe to 2025 could lose military superiority over Russia, Defense One writes.


"Give me money, otherwise the Russians will catch up with us!" Pentagon predicts superiority of the Russian army in Europe


Given the speed with which they (the Russian military) are modernizing, we cannot afford to slow down the pace of renewal of our armed forces. Otherwise, by the year 2025 they will challenge the domination of our army in almost all areas
Said the general.

Given the current situation, the European command asked 6,5 billions of dollars (more on 2 than last year) to finance the European Determination Initiative, which aims at military containment of Russia. The money is planned to be spent on increasing the "combat readiness of the air, land and sea forces."

The publication Defense One recalls that earlier the analytical center Rand Corporation published a report, according to which Russia over the past ten years has reduced the technological gap with NATO. At the same time, Moscow is building up its European grouping and gaining valuable combat experience in Syria, the document says, RIA reports News.

    Let the Pentagon introduce the position of CFO and invite Petsünder to it. In terms of "give money" he has no equal wassat The boy, however, often confuses "personal wool with the state", but perhaps the American budget will survive wassat

      It is not a matter of armament, but of the power of the Spirit! And in Russians, he was always high, despite all your vile and sanctions!
      And the weapons we have now are such that from any puddle or point in the taiga we can destroy any target on the planet .. Even without nuclear weapons! soldier Gentlemen, you don’t understand the good words, now now we’ll “communicate with partners” like this, hehe

        Nobody was going to catch you! The Russians turned around and took a different path: in response to your missile defense, they created hypersonic weapons. And now you can shove your missile defense for yourself, you yourself know where. And if it does not fit, then Europe with South Korea and Japan will help you! yes

                The situation is variable and unpredictable ...
                But ... It seems that Yavropa will become stubborn - Trump has long been demanding "appropriate contributions" to the defense from revisionist Russia from partners in the bloc. At the same time, Trump introduces new duties on steel, etc. from Europe. And the EU does not like it. Strongly dislike along the way, the United States literally demands to buy gas not from Gazprom, but from themselves. At appropriate prices.
                Something tells me that everything will end either with the death of an overseas padishah, or the EU-donkey ass will die ....

        It would be nice if ours offered striped to play rocket biathlon: a point is determined in the desert region, a defense is placed around it (air defense or missile defense) and the enemy launches a rocket (three missiles). The winner is the one who, despite the air defense means, hits the target. Everything is simple!
        And then we'll see ...

      It hasn’t arrived yet that their superiority after Putin’s statement on the military issue has been reset yes .
      After that, their fuss in Europe near our borders resembles a sandbox game, unless they are certainly suicide bombers and are ready to sacrifice their people for their ambitions.

        Yes. Modern strike systems are several times cheaper than systems designed to defend against them. Putin introduced all the shocks exclusively. Let them have fun now. They’ll try to create not in cartoons. But in metal. And to at least with a 70% guarantee to intercept new weapons.

            It is not that the cartoons are unreliable (I think that no one doubts in this case the authenticity of Putin’s words), but that with our economy, it will take decades to realize cartoons in the real mass rearmament of troops. While the West will now react and overtake us very quickly, if we do not take super-efforts, but this requires a change in the economic model of the state.

    American contingent in Europe may lose military superiority over Russia by 2025, writes Defense O
    The contingent will not lose overwhelming superiority, as it will be constantly strengthened by the deployment of battalion and brigade groups in corps structures.
    At the moment, the Atlantic transfer through the ports of Germany, France and the United Kingdom is being worked out, and so, a division complex is being worked out there, not a battalion one, so building up our forces in Romania, Poland, the Baltic states, Ukraine is just a technical moment and it depends on modernization of troops, which is now being held in the US Army, I emphasize, at an accelerated pace (AZ of armored vehicles, testing the actions of tactical groups, interaction with battlefield aircraft, etc.).

      Americans, apparently, simply adhere to previously developed plans. Apparently, an eastward movement was planned, but given the Iskanders in Europe, Crimea, new weapons, our experience in Syria, they will be satisfied with Europe. request

    My opinion is the same! NATO members are now starting to rush about, they are starting a psycho-agony, after the statement of Vladimir Putin. In this situation, money will be spent only in vain. So, in this situation, they will not invent anything normal, since it takes time and money. If they find money, then time is already working for us. wink

    Almost no NATO country has reached the military budget of 2% of GDP, as required by the NATO charter.
    Only Poland is rearming normally. Germany has slightly increased its military budget.

    As I understand it, Americans print money as much as they need. Therefore, those who do not print money in the United States, but ask for weapons, will receive it from those who print it. This will happen because of the fear of the latter that in the end they will be forbidden to turn on the printing press when they want.

    Solid military American bluff. 700 billion for the United States is not enough, we need more. The mafia military structure is quickly sawing money, the printed American machine tool does not have time for them. They will double the military budget twice, they will still plunder. Ukrainian crime took an example from America, does not want to lag behind these thieves. With whom you contact, that will be enough. Or they are using money and glue to mold a technique. You look at the debt of the United States is growing, now you understand what they make of them.
