Military Review

An American expert named the strongest armies of the future.

65
By 2030, the United States, Russia, France, India and China will have the most powerful armies in the world, leading RIA News opinion of American military expert Robert Farley.




According to Farley, through the 12 years, the American army will remain the global “gold standard”. He noted that “since the end of the Cold War, the Pentagon has accumulated considerable experience in combat operations, including in Iraq and Afghanistan,” while the Americans “have a huge military budget and the largest unmanned aerial vehicle fleet in the world that allows you to gather accurate intelligence information and deliver targeted strikes. "

In turn, the Russian army "experienced a difficult period after the collapse of the USSR," the expert writes. However, “thanks to proper funding, the Russian army, especially its elite units, has been revived” and now “frightens its neighbors with its size and skill”.

The Russian army will remain a deadly force in 2030, but, nevertheless, it will have serious problems. Access to technology in the future may be a serious problem.
he believes.

According to Farley, in Europe only France will retain powerful ground forces.

India is still lagging behind its competitors in military technology, but "does not stint on their acquisition from the United States, Russia and Europe," and therefore "has access to almost all modern models," he writes.

The Chinese army is strong, but it lacks combat experience. In addition, the PLA’s ground forces are “unlike aviation и fleetare deprived of financing, ”said the expert. At the same time, the Chinese command “has access to almost unlimited manpower,” adds Farley.

    Russia put in second place - it is gratifying! Given that this is an American expert, that is, an interested party, this leads to interesting thoughts. But what if this analysis is read by zadoliz countries? Will they dance harder to the American tune? No.

          According to Farley, after 12 years, the American army will continue to be the world "gold standard."
          The Russian army will remain a deadly force in 2030, but, nevertheless, will have serious problems.

        Doctor of Military Sciences, Deputy President of the Russian Academy of Missile and Artillery Sciences, Captain First Rank Konstantin Sivkov compared the capabilities of the naval, air and land forces of Russia and the United States. The expert’s article was published by the Military-Industrial Courier.
        “Thus, the American fleet is 12 times superior to the Russian fleet (while Kuznetsov corresponds to about half of the American counterpart in combat potential), 6,5 times as much for cruisers, five times as much for destroyers, and four times as many for nuclear submarines” - the expert writes.
        In his opinion, the Russian Navy is superior to the US Navy in non-nuclear submarines and ships of the near sea zone (corvettes, small missile ships and boats for various purposes). “However, Russia's superiority in this area is more than offset by the composition of the fleets of US allies, in particular NATO countries,” Sivkov notes.
        “In the aerospace sector, things are no better. In terms of combat aircraft (fighters, bombers, attack aircraft), the US Air Force and Navy are almost four times superior to the Russian Air Force and naval aviation. Moreover, the latter is inferior to the American by about two orders of magnitude. Given the supply aircraft, the overall quantitative superiority of US aviation is almost eightfold, ”the expert believes.
        According to Sivkov, although Russia has decent weapons, such as a fifth-generation fighter Su-57, they are not enough to achieve superiority over the United States. In addition, the expert noted the backlog of Russia from the United States in terms of the number of ground forces, as well as the adopted weapons of high-precision weapons.
        “And from this point of view, it’s just right not to curtail military production and the volume of the state defense order, but to increase it. Requests by the Ministry of Defense in the amount of 30 trillion rubles for a new state armament program seem very modest, ”the expert summed up.

          Paris without Berlin will not pull. But in conjunction they may well.
          The confrontation between Israel and Iran will not let both relax. The financial support of the United States and nuclear weapons makes Israel a formidable rival for anyone. Iran, if they do not strangle it with new sanctions, will play catch-up and will build muscle in the near future. It is interesting, what will BV come out after the ATO?
          Surprise can throw Tokyo - Eun does not give rest - changing the constitution to build up the fleet and troops, create missile forces and missile defense. What about Pakistan and India? The first will definitely not want to lag behind the Indians in terms of weapons.
          It must be assumed that by 2030 the United States will only rearm its strategic nuclear forces with new missile carriers. hi

    Something about France was bent. Will the French be in France by that time, along with the army there will be either Moroccan or Algerian.
