      Yes, by the number of exercises, moreover, in all regions of the country, we probably already surpassed the USSR. In my time, we carried out firing only once a year on final inspections and three rounds each ..... True, this is alarming very much like the preparation of the Russian Armed Forces for a possible REAL repulsion of aggression. God grant that we have time.

    Well, with all due respect. Well, when will something new come to replace these ancient twinks !? Yes, a good car, I do not argue, but it can’t last so long. 81 year of release! , and where are the newbies being asked?
    After all, "they" there are riveting in full!

      Years of serial production 81-94 years.
      And in Elizovo there are still not upgraded sides ...
      The sailors are still ahead with modernization, they just once were transferred to the Navy, it is not clear why ... well, they were financed there on a residual basis ....

      In vain do you worry about 31, he has outstripped his time and is still reaping the head start given to him. Here is the Su-24 or Tu-95 - these are really mastodons

    Missiles are few that electronic launches and not combat? You won’t learn much at such launches.

      Goals for combat launches are very costly to launch in the stratosphere

      We also launch Herculesych two or three times a year, and the rest of the time, tactically! It makes no sense to constantly shoot high-precision and expensive auras at the same expensive targets. Tactical launches fully allow the formation and maintenance of skills in combat use by crews; in the 90s and early 2000s, in YES, launches were generally carried out once a year, 2 crews from a regiment (usually not lower than the deputy commander), these were the times .

    They should be in close cooperation with the Navy, as they cover the base of atomic submarines.

      Aviation also covers many important combined-arms facilities, so now give the Air Force subordinate to the infantry? Specifically, about this part, I’ll say the following: when they were given under the Air Force the guys there and the combat training went up, and the raid and class, and when again under the Moreman, everything fell. They have now been reduced to a separate AE, although the materiel is almost a small regiment. Sailors supply their aircraft as a last resort, so it would be better if they were under the Air Force - the base of our SSBNs would be more reliable covered, I am sure.

        Dmitry, welcome!

        The fact that they have materiel on a whole regiment, that's for sure ...
        But not modernized, old stuff ...
        The sailors seem to have agreed to upgrade to BSM, and the guys should go for retraining ...
        Let's see how it grows together ...
        I have odnokans there ...

          Hey. Well, God forbid, of course, the Pacific Fleet is weak in all respects, both in ships and in aviation.
