The leaders of the world arms market are named


Between 2015 and 2019 weapons world exports increased by 5,5 percent compared to the period from 2010 to 2014.


At the same time, the United States and the Russian Federation took the first lines among the world's largest arms exporters.

This is stated in the report of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) on the state of the global arms market.

Although Russia ranks second in the world after the United States in the ranking of arms exporters, in 2015-2019 it reduced sales by 18 percent. If the Russian Federation in 2010-2014 occupied 27 percent of all global arms exports, now this figure has dropped to 21 percent.

Most of all, this drop was influenced by a decrease in the volume of arms supplied to India, which switched to a policy of diversifying sources of arms supplies. Thus, the volume of deliveries of Russian weapons to this country decreased by 41 percent. Significantly increased arms exports to India from Israel and France. The latter increased the sale of New Delhi weapons by more than eight times.

Today, India ranks second in the ranking of the world's largest arms buyers, and Saudi Arabia is in first place in the world among arms importers.

      China and India (which, in comparison with the Russian Federation, have long been somehow not “Third World countries”) want from us not so much weapons as technologies, all other sales - exclusively to the “Third World” for palm oil and tomatoes

    What to do, the arms market is very serious for any economy.
    The struggle for markets, contracts, goes without any rules!
    Stripes generally sent all the limits of decency far and forever, it seems.

        All the "stuffing" is a Russian warrior. This is not for sale. And so: At the expense of the Indians, they got the Su-30SM2, For the UAE - the Shell, At the expense of the Koreans Vityaz (by the way, surprisingly. The fleet received this system before the land)., At the expense of the Chinese, the S-400 export line. All systems in the Russian army are a cut above

        All this is objective / subjective.
        Do you need air conditioning in the equipment that comes in the “warm edges”? And the one that serves in our north is needed?
        And then, sho, this our "northern" technique can get into exercises in the same "warm lands" and OUR guys will be soared in it !!! how to understand / accept it?
        You can still find other cases of "savings" on the amenities for our fighters.
        Technical aspects also take place !!! save, install subsystems, those that are, we release ourselves, and we put to the foreign customer what they order.
        For example, French thermal imagers and the like put on export equipment, because they can order spare parts in France themselves, and for our own needs, the French will sell figs!
        Something like this. Then think for yourselves, sound declarations or empty chatter!
        I believe that the equipment delivered to OUR army, according to fundamentally important characteristics, has at least the worst parameters! And in many ways the BEST ..... and the "toilet paper rolls" in the kit, you can, but ........

        alas, there were such precedents. You can recall the T-90, BMP-3 tanks for the United Arab Emirates and for Azerbaijan, which left in a better configuration than the MO ordered for their aircraft. You can recall the purchase of Ka-28 helicopters for naval aviation of the Russian Federation (Ka-28 is an export version of the Ka-27 helicopter castrated by avionics).
        There is one reason for this - the lack of allocated funds (or the fact that they do not reach the addressee, settling in someone’s pockets)

        The only thing that pleases is not general (procurement of equipment in a simplified version). All the same, some types of equipment are still banned for export and can only be installed on equipment entering the Russian troops. In the USSR, all polls exported weapons were distinguished by reduced capabilities. Now they begin to depart from this rule.

        AAG: "... sometimes we buy" castrated "versions of weapons in our aircraft, and buyers demand all-inclusive, all the" stuffing "..."
        Differently. The poor ask for simpler, the wealthier abruptly. But more often, everything is exactly as you ask. It has long been no longer an axiom that equipment should be delivered with better performance characteristics to its own aircraft than for export. The buyer is always offered the best, and in his army for financial capabilities. I remember how amateurs of armored vehicles swore at VO that the T-90 was supplied in a budget version, but I didn’t want to stuff stuffed for export! And the matter is not only in the notorious air conditioners.
        Some kind of equipment is generally assembled or equipped to order. The buyer chooses the best. The same Su-30 Indians. Part of the systems of Israeli, French production. It's not about spare parts, it's about the best performance characteristics. A similar situation was with the ships. We put some sort of anti-aircraft missile systems not ours, but the same Israeli ones. And not only air defense systems and not only Israeli ones.
        Well, some types of weapons generally went only for export. For example, BMP-3F was delivered to Indonesia, and shish with oil was supplied to their marines. Rather, the old-new BTR-82.
        The only place we really are castrated for export is where weapons are subject to international restrictions. For example, rocket. Yakhont had to cut the range in comparison with Onyx.

        Striped ones make a good, in many ways, technique ... at the one that they have been doing for a long time!
        But with the new products they are all very expensive, in the first place, and "raw", too sophisticated, often .... not so Schaub to everyone and immediately suits.
        But to "sell", consider getting involved, they are doing it now! I don’t know how long this can last for them ???
        On the other hand, this is not ..... in short, their allies and satellites trade in "loyalty".

    Where is the percentage of the global arms market share. Indeed, if we assume that the Americans have 90% 5%, we and all other countries together have the remaining five percent - then in this case our second place is not comme il faut.

      And if the quantity is multiplied by American prices? The same Patriot costs twice as much as the S-400. And for Poland, so three times. Moreover, pay for American satellites; otherwise, you will shoot down civilian cars, as was the case with the Saudis recently. One Rafal for India as many as five Su-30

    Total US arms sales were 76% higher than the deals of the world's second largest arms exporter, Russia. In general, the United States strengthened its leadership in global arms trade - over the past five years, Washington has increased sales by almost a quarter (23%)

    In the USA, in 2015-2019, the volume of military exports increased by 23% compared to the previous period, which to date has provided them with a 36 percent share in global arms sales. Deliveries of the main types of weapons were carried out in 96 countries.

    “In the past five years, half of US arms exports went to the Middle East, and half of those shipments went to Saudi Arabia,” said Peter Weseman, senior research fellow at SIPRI. “At the same time, the demand for modern military aircraft has increased, especially in Europe, Australia, Japan and Taiwan.”

    In 2015-2019, Russia supplied weapons to 47 states. 55% of this volume came from the main partners in this area - India, China and Algeria. In terms of regional distribution, 57% of military supplies were to Asia and Oceania, 19% to the Middle East, 17% to African countries, 5,7% to European countries and 0,8% to countries of both Americas.

    Somehow it warns, it wouldn’t work out like with resources: we are building gas pipelines, our gas depth is not gasified, we export oil, and the prices for the internal solarium drive the prices of all goods, except for everything else, up ...

    Well, there are already questions for our oligarchs who are overweight ..
    These bastards will not get enough .. Capitalism, damn it! Elite form, but not yet evening
    The slogan "Workers, unite all countries!" .. More in the subject

    Brains need to have. Is always.
    All oil industry, gas, energy, arms production, and nuclear engineering in Russia are state-owned. If in the USSR the gas price in the country was 4 kopecks per cubic meter, then, therefore, with an abundance of gas production, we were the least gasified throughout the territory. Which one and the diot will drive the pipe into the Krasnoyarsk taiga, if there are 100 thousand residents across the tundra. Thousands of kilometers of pipe. It will never pay off.
    Now that domestic prices have become quite close to world prices, gasification has begun to rise, and has reached 80% in cities and 30% across the country. If prices are made global, gasification will be higher than anywhere else. Why drive to Paris if the price is the same in Voronezh?
    The price tag, inside the cheap, behind the cordon, rewards crime. Remember the Far Eastern border chief forbidding pushing fish to Japan was blown up in a 12-story building. together with neighbors? It will allow - it will live, it will forbid, it will observe the interests of the state, it will be destroyed. Equality of prices will make everyone patriots. Here the question is not in prices, but in wages should be.

    I upload, in the Penza region. To be exact, then 5,772 rubles per cubic meter. In a month, heating (own boiler), gas water heater, stove costs me two, in a 54-meter apartment, in January 311 cubic meters 5,772 rubles / m³ 1795,09 rubles.
    Didn’t I write clearly that in our troubles it’s not the fists-world-eaters who are to blame. It is IMPOSSIBLE to have low domestic prices for goods.
    It was in the USSR that the borders were locked. And they guarded domestic prices for raw materials, energy. everything else. Now there are practically no borders. Imagine. that in your city suddenly began to sell bread at 18 cents. You will starve to death. Firstly, they will not bring it to you, there are no boobs, you have to sell 18 kopecks, and next to it, in the next, 18 rubles. Second, even if someone began to bake it with you, he will take it to a neighboring one. There are 18 rubles. And if he is a patriot, and will carry to the store, you yourself will buy and sell. at the neighbors. And so that your city does not die out, you need borders around the city, and sell in stores by registration. His own. Around Russia, the border is 60 thousand kilometers.
    I repeat, not low prices are needed, but high salaries.
    But how do you pay as much as the Frenchman gets? You work the hell knows which machine and do the Soviet TV "Horizon". Which no one needs. And your productivity is hundreds of times less. And for this you need a completely different production.
    Clearly spelling out? Understand this, do not wind the snot and curse. Learn, and you will be much more sad.
