Military equipment in the Far Eastern District upgraded to 50%


In the current year, soldiers of the airborne troops are mastering the Pantsir anti-aircraft missile system.

More than half of the models of equipment in service with the air force and air defense units of the Eastern Military District were upgraded and obtained during 2011-2012. This was announced at a briefing on Friday by the commander of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Eastern Military District, Sergei Dronov, RIA reports News.

"For 2011-2012 years, we upgraded and received more than 50% of aircraft models of the association. We switched to re-equipping air defense forces in 2011 from Buk complexes to C-300, this year we went further, from C-300 to the complex C-400 "Triumph" and the Pantsir missile-anti-aircraft complex, which is being mastered this year by unification, "said Sergey Dronov.

As RIA PrimaMedia previously reported, about 500 graduates of military colleges arrived in the troops of the Eastern Military District.

      And what is the essence and result of the "reform" in this case? The S-400, of the type adopted for service, does not correspond to the declared capabilities by 50%. We saw the loot and fed the people "concrete results"! Haha ... I am for the development and strengthening of the army, but not like that. Otherwise we will turn into Libya.

        Uh ... if the oil reserves ran out, how did they rush about?
        From C300-C400 and the old C300 to sell to Iran or GIVE TO Syria.
        Still to this re-equipment of specialists ...

    The issue is not updating, although the matter is necessary and in quantity, under the USSR there was a powerful grouping, a system of fortifications, and now what?

      Well, if you think about it, so why do we need fortification systems and thousands of tanks now? China scare? Well, it’s useless, the PLA will in any case outnumber our forces by a minimum of 4-5 times. But most importantly, it’s time to already understand that there will be no more war between the superpowers in the style of the Second World War. Anyway in the foreseeable future. And it’s not even a matter of ICBMs, but rather tactical nuclear weapons, it’s easier to use and the result is not worse. And still there are nuclear minefields ... In short, to tremble in fear of the multimillion-dollar armies of the Chinese and try to form an adequate grouping of conventional forces with conventional weapons as a counterbalance to them - I think the case is hopeless and frankly unnecessary. The main thing now is the Navy, Navy and Airborne Forces, capable of solving tasks around the world. And in the east, the most often blinding enemy is Japan, for the fight against which it is not tanks that are needed, but primarily the Air Force, Navy and Air Defense.

      They know that we cannot be defeated in a "fair fight" for a long time and firmly. But they also know that you can stupidly buy some of us. And then we are all death row.

    This approach pleases. In fact, we are restoring an impenetrable air defense system and we can approach the level of the USSR. Just remember about light-engine and low-flying aircraft.

      So far, there is no chance of catching up with the USSR in terms of air defense. Only informational noise. Because no one set himself such a task, did not put it before science, the army, industry. 20% of the military-industrial complex’s budget was stolen (see the Accounts Chamber), what are we talking about ?! Clearly, I want to dream ...

      there is something to strive for:

      this is not necessary! develop the economy there, but build factories, culture and education! technology! here we must strive! and stamping milenas of arms, that's enough, they already swam that they’ve gone to the bottom! all this armada stands still and there is no sense ... the same states at least fought and beat off the grandmother, but our expenses went to a standstill ... we need an army, a strong one, not a huge one! and this is the difference! There are 100 of the coolest tanks or a million savages with clubs! for money the same thing, but the quality and effectiveness are different)))

      so you don’t have to arm yourself to the teeth there, otherwise we will again stand behind the coupons, as in S. Korea, there is an army, and rice on holidays! By 2020, plenty of ordered, more and no need! + \ - I still have to buy some more, a bit .. and then 1 \ 3 of the budget, it’s a lot of money, sooooo! even the USSR did not spend so much at a time! and in times of crisis it’s also risky

        A million savages threw these 100 tanks with stones and bury them in the ground, and since the cost is the same, it is better than them.

        Is the military-industrial complex not an economy?
        The military-industrial complex is the most high-tech and high-tech economy in which there is just nothing to do without a high education and even culture. I’ll even say more - the military-industrial complex is the locomotive of the rest of the state’s economy. The United States has largely enriched itself on military orders.
        And from the North. Korea does not need to be compared. The country is in an economic blockade.

        Who told you (surname, please) that the army ate the entire budget of the USSR? I will laugh. And the coupons, which I saw only for vodka, are also to blame for the army ?! Shopipets! Watch less TV and central newspapers - there is enough information already! This is all the same lie as the victory of Yeltsin in the 96th (by the way, Medvedev even said it out loud laughing

    I waited and waited. Well, apparently, and I waited today 6 August, the day of the railway troops, it's a shame this type of troops is no less important than other types of troops so do not debate though not in the subject BUT forced

    RUSSIA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We are the children of those who attacked
    To the white squads
    Who left the locomotives
    And he went to the barricades.


    Our engine, go ahead!
    There is a stop in the commune
    We have no other way
    We have a rifle in our hands.

    Let's fight we sons
    In the ranks with the fathers together,
    We beat the enemy - one family,
    Burning with one revenge.

    We are in the bowels of our workshops
    We forge, plan, chop
    Not tirelessly,
    We love factory labor.

    We will use our steam locomotive
    As we need.
    When the people command us
    Let's go hit the enemy together.

    one thing is for sure - well done!)))

    The main conclusion that can be drawn from this information, in addition to the joy of rearmament itself, is that the country's leadership was seriously engaged in strengthening the Far Eastern borders, realizing the danger from both Japan and China, and the possibility of internal separatism, fueled by our sworn star-striped friends trying hard to break up the Russian Federation into specific principalities. The army, not offending the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the FSB, always carried additional functions cementing the state.
    And so, the news itself is truly joyful and life-affirming!

    So everything is written correctly, since they immediately began to minus. Do not sleep American hamsters! soldier

      The army now, "no offense to the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the FSB," is inferior to them in the number of l / s, the quality and quantity of new equipment, the absence of a clear military doctrine and any intelligible prospects. I have nothing to do with hamsters. I am a local who served in the Army for 10 years in units and units of combat support)))

      An empty article, about nothing. And the army, yes, destroyed. I have something to compare. In the 80s, only in the SGV they began to deploy shelves on the S-300 contract composition - 10 pcs, if sclerosis does not lie. Where are they?! Disbanded. In the 90s, a tank regiment from the Group came to the ZABVO - all the vehicles were put in NTOTs (if that says something), and 55 and 62 were left in units (this is in URs). Recently I talked with comrades, who are still serving - nothing has changed. In the SPN company, they use the 1PN37 device, and in 89 we handed over 1PN58 to the warehouses! Means of communication - at our group level, people had P / S, but today - only in the cinema or at the "cool" ones. The main means of communication is a mobile phone and GPS for your money. Not funny? And the S-400 (with two levels of operation) on one level does not have the declared radar, on the other - the declared missiles. Learn materiel, damn it! "It's okay, lovely marquise ...", damn it. Or do you write for money (now, they say, there is such a trend among keystrokes))))
