This conversation was prompted by the news, which made me a little uncomfortable. And which we will take apart by cogs.

In 2023, Russia will (yes, there are options) will begin work on a new intercontinental ballistic missile with the code name "Kedr". The missile will have a double "registration", that is, silo and mobile basing. According to the developers' idea, "Kedr" will have to replace ... "Yars". Moreover, already in this decade.

Looks ... alarming. And that's why. How much do we have in service with ICBMs today?

1. R-36M2 "Voyevoda"
2. RN-100N UTTH
3. RT-2PM "Poplar
4. RT-2PM2 "Topol-M"
5. RS-24 "Yars"

It's in the mines. And plus to them mobile soil complexes "Topol-M" and "Yars".

In addition, in 2022 or 2023, the Strategic Missile Forces should receive a new RS-28 "Sarmat" missile, unfortunately there is no exact information about the successful tests of which. There is a video of an allegedly successful launch of a rocket, which is replaced by computer animation immediately after the rocket leaves the mine. As usual, though.

A reasonable question arises: why do we need another rocket? After all, "on the way" the latest missile, which is able to solve all the problems with ICBMs. Which is "Sarmat".

But we will talk about this separately. Now we will focus on slightly different matters.

Russia is the heir to the USSR, in which a huge amount of various weapons were invented and manufactured. We still use scraps of this, and we will use it for quite a long time. This is especially true of the surface fleet and ground forces.

But variety isn't always good. For repair, service and maintenance. For maintenance of warehouses with spare parts and so on. In the end, to preserve the livestock of zampotekh and zampotlov.

In Russia, 5 mine ICBMs and 2 ground-based ICBMs are now in service. And two more will be added.

In the fleet:
- R-29RM;
- R-29RMU2 "Sineva";
- R-29RMU2.1 "Liner";
- R-30 "Bulava".

4 more types. Different from each other, except for "Sineva" and "Liner", they are almost identical.

What do the Americans have? And everything is very simple for them. Ground mine complex with "Minuteman-3". In service since 1970, has undergone a huge number of upgrades. Is still relevant as weapon last blow, although certainly not new.



At sea it is "Trident-2".

Unification: What You Need to Learn from Americans

SLBMs have been in service with the US submarine fleet since 1990 and have also been modernized several times. Good weapon.

And that is all.

You can look at nuclear submarines.


The Russian fleet operates both old Soviet boats and modern Russian-made ones:

- Project 941 "Shark";
- Project 667BDRM "Dolphin";
- Project 955 "Borey" (955A "Borey-A");
- Project 885 "Ash" (885M "Ash-M");
- Project 949A "Antey";
- Project 971 "Pike-B";
- project 945 "Barracuda";
- Project 945A "Condor";
- Project 671RTMK "Pike";
- Project 667BDR "Kalmar".

10 types of nuclear submarines. Each can differ from the other in any way, by thousands and one design decision. And when carrying out each repair at the plant, you probably first have to study the technical documentation for the project for a long time and dreary.

Everything is calmer in the USA.


- Ohio. As the main SSBN
- "Virginia". As the main PLATRC.
- "Los Angeles". PLATRK, withdrawn from the fleet.
- "Seawulf", withdrawn from the fleet, for slag.

You can return to land. And there to look, for example, at such an important component of the ground forces as tank troops.


The Russian army today is armed with T-90 / T-90A, T-90M, T-80U / T-80BV, T-80BVM, T-72B / T-72BA / T-72B arr. 1989, T- 72B3 / T-72B3 model 2017

A total of 3 models and 6 active upgrades. Which of them is the real "main battle tank" - the question. If by quantity, then T-72B3, if in fact - T-90.

What's in the USA?


Abrams. One model in three versions. M1A1SA, M1A2, M1A2C. That is, in fact, the headache is three times less.


And so you can go on for a very long time. Traces of the Soviet Union can be found in almost every section of naval, land and air weapons. Correctly serving for the good of Russia.

Is it good? I’m sure not. This is a big headache in knowing the subject of repair or maintenance, the range of spare parts, and what is there, just knowing where in which submarine the control cables are laid.

What about tanks, what about vehicles based on tanks? For example, such a miracle as an armored recovery vehicle comes. A very useful thing in the household, because it can do a lot.

Where to send for repairs? There, where they know, of course. But BREM-1 should be sent to where they know how to work with the T-72, and BREM-2 (aka BREM-80U) - to where they know the T-80.

That is, you need to understand what to send to St. Petersburg, what to Omsk, and what to Nizhny Tagil.

And if you take into account the full list of what was developed on the basis of our tanks (air defense systems, self-propelled guns, TOS, BREM, IMR), then it becomes clear that all this breakthrough of equipment needs to be repaired. This does not mean the repairs that can be done in each unit by the forces of technicians, but also complex overhauls, which requires sending the machine a little further than the regiment's workshop.

Unification is what the Russian army and navy lacks today. Because unification saves time and money at the same time. But one gets the impression that unification is precisely what the Russian military-industrial complex does not need tomorrow.

It's simple: everyone wants to live. Receive salaries, bonuses, bonuses and everything else. Take the UAC, for example. This corporation includes:

-PJSC "Company" Sukhoi ";
- JSC "Russian Aircraft Corporation" MiG ";
-PJSC "Tupolev";
-PJSC "Research and Production Corporation" Irkut ";
-CRAIC Ltd .;
-JSC AeroComposite;
- JSC "KAPO-Composite";
-JSC AeroComposite-Ulyanovsk;
- JSC "Aviastar-SP";
-PJSC "Voronezh Joint-Stock Aircraft Building Company";
-PJSC "Taganrog aviation scientific and technical complex named after G.M. Beriev ";
- JSC "Experimental Machine-Building Plant named after V.M. Myasishchev ";
-JSC "Flight Research Institute named after M.M. Gromov ";
-OJSC "Experimental Design Bureau named after A. Yakovlev";
-OJSC "Aviation complex named after S. V. Ilyushin".

And also aircraft repair plants:

-AO 121 ARZ;
-AO 123 ARZ;
-AO 360 ARZ;
-AO 514 ARZ;
- OJSC "170 RZ SOP" repair plant of flight support equipment;
- JSC "31 ZATO" plant of aviation-technological equipment;
- OJSC "32 RZ SOP" repair plant of flight support equipment;
-OJSC "680 ARZ" Aviation Repair Plant;
- OJSC "720 RZ SOP" repair plant of flight support equipment;
-OJSC "VZ RTO" Volgograd Radio Engineering Equipment Plant;
-OJSC 20 ARZ;
-OJSC 275 ARZ;
-OJSC 308 ARZ;
-OJSC 322 ARZ;
- JSC 325 ARZ.

More than 100 staff members scattered throughout the country.

And this is where you can ask questions.

For example, to the employees of the Ilyushin aviation complex. Why is the Il-30MD-76A, a modification that should replace the Il-90MD-M, all that the company can boast of for 76 years? Why did the Il-114 turn out to be so "luxurious" that all potential customers abandoned it? And two firms that managed to get the plane for their use successfully went bankrupt? Why does the Il-112V fly "successfully" once every three years?

And everyone in the company receives a salary systematically, if not regularly.

Can I ask the Aerocomposite company where is the wing for the MC-21? In 2018, the Americans vetoed the supply of their composites, three years have passed. There are no compositions of their own, despite the imitation of a very vigorous activity by both Aerocomposite and UMATEX (part of the Rosatom corporation), Prepreg-SCM (from the RUSNANO gang), and UNIHIMTEK.

And there are many such questions to be asked. Many companies. Those who use up funds with all their might, and at the end of the withdrawn from service and production of weapons systems, of which, according to Defense Minister Shoigu, there were only a dozen in the Syrian campaign. Or missing wings for airplanes. As an option.

But soon there will be 30 years of independent activity. And the further, the faster the Soviet legacy, even if it is somewhat different in size, will fade into oblivion. To landfills. In the furnace for remelting.

The question is: what will come to replace it is still a question.

Obviously, the Ministry of Defense simply has no idea what the planned replacement of military equipment should look like. Therefore, there is a release on the principle of "who in what is great." Naturally, with a corruption component. As, for example, with incomprehensible and useless ships of project 22160 (Will "pigeons" improve "Calibers"?), which are directly spoken of, which was not without backstage contracts.

How about the "main battle tank", of which we have three so far. Thank God, this has not yet reached "Armata". Otherwise there would be four. Four "main battle tanks". Strangely a few.

There should be one main battle tank. That's why he is the main one. There can be modifications, this is undeniable. But modifications to one tank, not three.

There should be one type of strategic submarine missile cruiser, not six. Yes, SSBNs should have plenty, but of one type. So that at any time you can take any unit or mechanism from the warehouse or from the factory and replace it professionally.

And so with all types of weapons. Here you should learn from the Americans. Maximum unification is the key to simplicity and the ability to eliminate any problem.

By the way, we have someone to take an example from. Not everything is so bad in the Russian army (more precisely, in its part), there are also pleasant exceptions. This is the Airborne Forces. There, the issue of unification in terms of technology was solved, and it was solved beautifully. The creation of a single platform for all equipment is clearly traced there.

To date, the following list has been adopted and is being developed:
- BMD-4M
- BTR-MDM "Shell"
- BMM-D (sanitary evacuation vehicle)
- RHM-5M (chemists)
- 120-mm SAO "Lotos".
- "Zavet-D" (b / c conveyor for "Lotus")
- SAM "Poultry"
- ATGM "Kornet-D1"
- BRM "Pervoput" (reconnaissance)
- BREM "Affect-M"

All this was created on the basis of the BMD-4M.

And the Sprut-SDM1 self-propelled anti-tank gun was also unified to the maximum with the BMD-4M, although it was based on another project, “Judge”, otherwise “Project 934”, which was planned to replace the PT-76 amphibious tank.

On the basis of our tanks and armored personnel carriers, many auxiliary vehicles have also been created, the whole question is that there are more models. But it is necessary, like the paratroopers, to take one machine as a basis and build on it. How did the Americans do with their "Stryker", from which they did not sculpt anything.

Orderliness and maximum unification is the way that, with a budget of 70 billion dollars, will allow you to create an effective army, spending exactly as much as you need, and not as some as you can. Ten times more.

The main thing is to use funds in a planned and purposeful manner. Do not build two training centers for twenty naval pilots for whom there is no aircraft carrier. Do not kill billions of money to build ships that are completely unnecessary for the fleet. Not to support unprofitable companies that cannot create a normally flying plane in 30 years.

And a new rocket, which will step on the heels of the newly created one, is hardly a logical decision.

But this requires a clear understanding of the strategy and tactics of development of both the Armed Forces and the Navy. Precisely clear. Precisely understanding. And with this, apparently, we are somewhat tense today.

I express my deep gratitude to Alexei "Alex TB" for clarification about the tracked mechanisms.

      The short answer is that this is the Russian legacy of the Soviet military tradition. But if we take tanks, then there is already a tendency towards unification - the Armata platform, a fairy tale tells quickly, but things are not done quickly!

        If we take tanks, then we don't know when the "Armata" will arrive. And unification has been outlined for a long time - on the basis of the T-72. T-90 is the same T-72B only improved. The Ministry of Defense came to the right decision to upgrade all T-90s to the T-90M level. Great car turned out! It is not clear only, why not upgrade all the T-72s to the same level? After all, the base of the T-72 and T-90 is practically the same. Rather, it is clear why, it is a pity for money. And so it would be all right with the unification. A single T-90M tank and T-80BVM for regions with a particularly cold climate. Replaced by the planned "Armata".

            ... There are too many differences between T72 and T90.


            Hello.

            Yes, the T-90 and T-72 differ significantly. But here it's all about the "approach":
            If the T-90 was brought to the "Breakthrough-3" (there were also more serious options), then the B3 and T-80 are being modernized on the basis of ... "how much money is enough for maximum coverage in terms of quantity."

            The very idea of ​​unification is great. There is only one pitfall here - the platform should be maximally modified and even "successful"
            And then:
            * Heavy gusli - Armata platform,
            * Light gusli - platform Kurganets-25,
            * Wheels - Boomerang.
            * Lightweight wheels are still a mess.
            * Airborne Forces - BMD-4M.
            Different caliber weapons in modules, maximally (if possible) unified between platforms.
            Here it will be - seer good and full ice in terms of:
            - development of platforms to perfection of quality,
            - logistics and availability of spare parts,
            - cheapness due to mass character.
            .................
            The biggest mess in this is in the ISB (military engineers) of brigades and divisions.
            They have a wide range of platforms - from the Su-100 to the T-80. And how to keep this "Menagerie" on alert for the zampotech?
            ................
            The Airborne Forces have the "largest order".
            They have really decisive not only fighters, but also generals.
            * Didn't like the BMD-4 as a platform? Boldly into the furnace and finishing up the BMD-4M, and only then into the series.
            * Didn't like the exorbitant price? Well, they must have dipped someone in the right place. We solved the issue with two factories and guaranteed stable orders.
            * Need unification? I believe that they will make the entire line of machines they need. They will do it. AND ALREADY DO.
            Moreover, they have experience, on the basis of the BTR-D (earlier), a decent family was also created:
            BTR, Nona, Rheostat, Robot, Grinding, Magpie, Tit, Phobos, Stroy-P, BREM.

            So you can learn from the paratroopers not only courage and courage, but also economics, planning and persistence in making comprehensively balanced decisions.

                It is important not to overdo it, as always.
                There are weapons systems, according to the requirements of which the platform is built, and not vice versa.
                For example - army air defense or special. cars.

                There may be exceptions to all the rules, the main thing is that there are competent justifications.

                  Why would a T-90 tower suddenly not fit the T-72 hull, if the diameter of the turret ring of both the one and the other is the same 1815mm?recourse
                  In general, the T-90 was originally called the T-72BU ("U" is an improved one, following the example of the T-80U). But then it was renamed T-90. Although structurally it was much closer to the older brother of the T-72 (it was created as its modification and had the same hull, engine and tracks, the same cast turret) than the T-80U to the T-80.

                    If interested, I will try to clarify.

                    They, in principle, are always not happy about replacing the tower with another, even within the framework of one project - their "wedding" is full of crap.
                    Even tanks of the same series.
                    I remember that well.

                      No need to clarify. Until recently, my schoolmate worked at UVZ.
                      Quite a tower from the T-90 sits on the T-72 hull. Of course they are not completely interchangeable, some adjustments are needed. For example, a turret rotation mechanism, a commander's central control unit / "Double" drive, an internal control unit, etc. but iron itself sits down on iron.

                        Hmm.
                        Here I will not insist.
                        Perhaps I am wrong.

                        Nevertheless, I will clarify at the earliest opportunity. Somehow it was deposited in my head that they were not interchangeable. It became interesting to the most.
                        Thanks for the info.

                If you bring the T-72 to the level of the T-90M, then yes, the turret needs to be changed. But you can do as with the T-80BVM. Install the same DZ "Relikt" system on the old cast turret as on the T-90M. On her, the DUM from the T-90M. Well, the filling of the cap is all from the T-90M. If desired, a welded box on the bracket can be installed at the rear of the turret in order to remove ammunition from the non-mechanized stowage outside the habitable compartments. Although, I would not do that.
                So much for the T-90M, only with a cast turret. Well, you can call it T-72B4 to distinguish it.

                  Since the point of the new tower is to place BOPSs of large elongation in the turret niche to penetrate modern and promising tanks, since in old towers the length of BOPSs has limitations, they simply do not fit into the automatic loader. You can't do that with an old tower.

                    The length of the BOPS is important not behind the turret, but in the automatic loader cassette. Put in the T-72 a modified AZ from the T-90M and you will be happy. And behind the armor, long bops can be carried in a welded "armored suitcase".

            It depends on what modifications of the T-72 and T-90 to compare. If the early T-90 and T-72B arr. 1989. That difference is only in the gunner's sights and the commander's sighting device, plus a closed ZPU. Well, the curtain. Everything. If we take the later T-90A and T-72B3 combat units, then a difference is added in the welded and cast turret, but the gunner's sighting system for the T-72 is already more advanced.

        Not everything was good with the industry in the USSR in the 40s, for example, only 34 factories could produce t2, so the situation is quite comparable. And the results are not.

          And it is a great happiness of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation that this animal did not replenish the zoo of the Armored Forces. It was not enough at that time to multiply the zoo. At the storage bases there is a huge number of T-72 and T-80, with an untouched resource and suitable for modernization. Tanks are needed not for a parade, but for a war, which means you need a lot of them, with the ability to quickly replenish losses from the reserve and promptly repair damaged ones. With "Armata" this is impossible in principle - neither have a lot, nor quickly replenish, nor quickly restore.
          The emergence of such a platform can only be justified by a tank of new possibilities. Definitely not MBT, but for example a "heavy tank of breakthrough and fire support" with 152 mm. tool. You can have several brigades for all aircraft of this type, and this will be enough.
          And from 125 mm. a cannon, and he wasn’t for nothing.
          Who in the troops will set up, calibrate, maintain its millimeter radar?
          And in combat conditions?
          But on its chassis to install a combat module "Coalition" ... or rather, even on the chassis of the BMP T-15 ... it would be very interesting to happen.
          Perhaps the only disruption in the rearmament program, which I am happy about, is the disruption in the supply of the "Armata".

            we have thousands of obsolete BMPs that can be found literally from any NATO combat vehicle.

            I'm not a fan of armata at all - I think it's stupid to refuse a full-fledged project.

              There is nothing to be done about the security of our old infantry fighting vehicles, but we cannot abandon them while they are in the resource, and they are all floating with us. And with our abundance of rivers and lakes, this option is important.
              But you look at the BMP-3, and especially the BMP-3M "Dragoon", where the security is already quite at the level - it holds 30 mm in the forehead, and with side screens (the same as in Kurganets), and in the side 30 mm. keeps. And even a grenade launcher. You can also use KAZ if you wish.
              And if we judge by weight (21 tons), then its security is no worse than that of "Kurganets", which weighs 25 tons. The dimensions are very large.
              And while she swims.
              And many times cheaper than "Kurganets", because it uses a serial base and components.
              "Kurganets" is no less harmful to the RF Armed Forces than the notorious "Armata" in its present guise. As priced as the T-90MS, it is simply cyclopean in size. It was not for nothing that at its first inspection the General Staff and Generals of the Ground Forces called it "The Dream of a Grenade Launcher". When buying such a mandolin, you will waste your budget and gain no benefit.
              But the BMP-3M is just that. Her troop compartment has become more spacious, and the landing / disembarkation is more convenient. On such a base, and sculpt a full line of armored vehicles for the ground forces - from infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers (in the likeness of "Shells" at the paratroopers), to the command and staff vehicle, sanitary evacuation, ammunition transport to the front edge, bases for self-propelled guns and a light tank ( exactly what India wants - weighing 25 tons and with a 125 mm cannon).
              And the BMP-2 and BMP-1M with the new module will still serve - our army is large, the territory is huge, and they still have enough resources. And at the storage bases they simply heaped up.

              They are suitable as MBT and this is the main thing. There are a lot of them in storage bases, and this is very good - such a stock will never be superfluous, especially during a threatened period like now. The T-80 in the latest modernization is simply handsome, and the T-72B3 is, although the most budget version of the modernization, but in terms of the sighting complex and avionics, it is quite acceptable.
              Before the Second World War, the USSR began to re-equip the Army with new automatic rifles. The three-line rifles were removed from production, about 2 million automatic rifles were produced and delivered to the troops ... but it turned out that for yesterday's collective farmers, automatic rifles are too difficult to maintain and use ... And again they returned to production the PROVEN, RELIABLE and RELIABLE three-line rifles.
              And this is a good lesson for the future - in a threatened period, weapons should be familiar, familiar, in sufficient quantity, easily repaired and replenished.

              I am also annoyed by the monstrous gaps in the dynamic protection of the T-72B3, but such an upgrade has one serious plus - it has a very moderate cost and allows such upgrades to be carried out in large quantities. The T-34 became the "Best Tank of WW2" not because it really was better than others, but because it was MASSIVE, inexpensive to manufacture and very repairable. And the optics, shells and guns ... and the quality of the armor (except for the very end of the war) the Germans had better.
              But there were fewer of them.
              Huge reserves of Soviet weapons - tanks, self-propelled guns, infantry fighting vehicles, artillery of all types, mountains of small arms and ammunition, mortars, etc. - are our indisputable advantage in the event of a land war. We have something to fight with.

                  Modernization is more profitable in terms of quickly saturating troops with updated equipment (we have a threatened period since 2014), forming a reserve for quickly replenishing losses and deploying new formations (including mobilization). The tankers recruited from the reserve, who served before on the T-72, will quickly master the modernized T-72 (and there will be no others) and will regain their skills.

                  These things rape any tank today - tanks from any manufacturer.

This is a new challenge, new goals and threats, and it is precisely those who are responsible for air cover that must be answered.

                  It is sufficient for a number of secondary theaters and as a second line tank (dancer and development of the success of the T-90). It's just that, starting in 2014, there was a question about the rapid rearmament of tank units and formations with new equipment, because the old one for the most part has exhausted its resource. For this purpose, the T-72B3 was the best fit - it was faster and cheaper). But the disadvantages of such modernization are obvious (including the gaps in the dynamic protection) and were definitely not a panacea. Therefore, the delivery of the T-90MS has begun, which is devoid of these shortcomings.

The maximum target range of the T-72B3 \ T-90SM \ T-80BVM is significantly greater than that of the Leopards and Abrams.

        The short answer is that this is the Russian legacy of the Soviet military tradition, but if we take tanks, then there is already a trend towards unification.

        Quite right. And the Americans, with their unification, have already raised the question of writing off all Minuteman ICBMs, since their resource has been exhausted, which was confirmed by the recent unsuccessful test launch. Moreover, the United States is already discussing the issue of eliminating ground-based ICBMs as a class. Because the last modernization of Minuteman ICBMs was carried out already in 1970, and their production was discontinued in 1978. Since then, the United States has lost the technology for their production, and it is both time-consuming and expensive to restore them. Thank God! in Russia, research and development work is being carried out on this topic. The technology is improving, the quality indicators of missile weapons are improving. In general, the Americans should learn from Russia how to produce such perfect weapons at minimal cost and have the most powerful army in the world with such a modest military budget.

      Well, modernization itself is never bad. Especially if they manage to crank it before the construction of a large series (and the series, of course, has already been modernized). The same F-15 is also used by the Americans in three different modifications (C, E and D), and nothing. The main thing is that the modernization itself should be carried out, so to speak, in a large-scale and systematic manner, and not so that each aircraft is made according to an individual project.

        In the United States, they just upgrade in packages, carry out R&D, wait for a package of significant updates to accumulate that will really increase efficiency and effectiveness. Then they will modernize. And we get the impression that they are in a hurry to implement any innovation.

        This is not the point. Yes, as it were, the operation and repairs in peacetime brings some inconvenience, but only to those who operate. For those who carry equipment back and forth, this situation brings butter and caviar (not overseas) for a piece of bread. In a modern global war (namely global), any modification is only a consumable disposable product. On the other hand, it is not the BMP-4 that is going to the war with the terrorists (they only get there for testing), but the BMP-2. And the T-90s also go there only for testing, and the T-72s are fighting there. And here's another example for you - "Admiral Kuznetsov". Here he remained in the singular, without modifications. Here's an example of continuous unification. And where? And how are you doing with repairs and maintenance?

      Right. In addition, it must be borne in mind that the country is huge and a single tank is not ideal everywhere. T-80Us arrive in the Arctic zone, there will be no diesel T-72, T-90, so there will be no problems with spare parts kits and the qualifications of technicians.

      The turbine is certainly better in the cold. But the Norwegians somehow use their Leopards on diesels in frosty weather. And they are not capricious. But you could buy Abrams with turbines for the Arctic parts.

      That's how it is. But the T-72 and T-90 have a small percentage of unification, require different training of crews and technical service, as well as different parts. That is, from a cost point of view, these are 2 different types.

      Well, in general. For example, Mi-28N - Mi-28UB - Mi-28NM - Ka-52 - Ka-52K - Ka-52M - Ka29M they want to revive on the Ka-27M hull (which is on Ka-32) for UDC - Mi-35M + more Mi -8 in an attack version with ATGM and other things + they also want to make a light attack helicopter.

        It is quite possible to improve a diesel engine and make it "frost-resistant"! But it is necessary to make changes in the design ... this will increase the cost of the engine ... maybe you will have to take into account some more "nuances"! We must take into account: how many tanks Norway has ... and how many tanks are needed for the Arctic troops of Russia ... And the T-80 tanks ... yes, they are ready-made in the warehouses collecting dust!

          Well, a cannon is not an indicator at all. L7 was installed on almost all tanks in the world - from Britain and the USA to South Africa and China.
          As for the engine, not everything is so simple there either. And on the T-72B3 it is different, if that from the years. On the T-90 initial, Hindu and Algerian / late Serdyukov, for example, are also different.

          The name is similar to why the MiG-29M2 turned into the MiG-35. Marketing and the difficulty of communicating to buyers that this is a new technique, and not repainted Brezhnev samples with elements of modernization. And that your new tanks / aircraft will be much better than the neighboring T-72M / MiG-29M.

But I said that on some T-72s and early T-90s there were practically the same engines (if there were differences, then in some small "nuances" ...) On the remaining T-72, T-90 engines of different modifications, but one "family" ... unified up to 70% and a little higher ...! Isn't it unification? And the same dynamic "armor" can be installed! And "export" tanks are not the best reason ... the installation of "imported" equipment was in the "order of things" (for example, thermal imagers, air conditioners ...) ... the "imported" engine could also be installed with a German 120-mm cannon , if there was an order ... "any whim for your money"!
            If we take your example about MiGs, then here, too, "continuity" is often emphasized! Like, take the "newest" MiG-35, if you have old MiG-29s ... it will be easy and habitual for you to maintain, repair new aircraft ... the old armament will do, it is easy and quick to retrain pilots, technicians ...! Isn't it a "hint of unification"?

But it is "not fashionable" to ask such questions in public nowadays, because at first the answer is "There is no alternative", "Horses in the crossing do not change" and accusations of different versions and degrees of liberalism.

Three schools of tank building existed in the USSR and they gave T-64 (Kharkov), T-80 (Leningrad-Omsk) and T-72 (Nizhny Tagil). T-64 is not ours now, should we cut T-80 on needles for the sake of unifying the tank fleet? The same is true for rocketry, and for the fleet and aviation: a significant part of all this was developed during the Soviet era and, if it is in a working condition, should it be destroyed for the sake of "unification"?

        So what "needs to be learned from the Americans"? But we must understand that in addition to their "unification" there is NATO, which uses both a gas turbine and a diesel engine, in which there is a "Negro" and AZ, a smoothbore gun and a rifled one ... In addition, Russia has different climatic zones, long borders , and everything on one type of technique is hardly correct to try on.

        Savings ... It has already happened, let's like, we will eliminate all AK from the warehouses, we will make new ones. Let's start scrapping all the T-72s from the storage bases, make thousands of new "Armats", with virtually one-off production.

        And, let's, let's first check who generates such ideas, which smells very much of sabotage to our defenses. I don't know who they are, just fools, or more - "effective managers", but there was also an idea of ​​enlarging army warehouses, to the level of understanding "hypermarkets", where almost one giant warehouse had to be for each military district, so it is more convenient to maintain them in terms of "optimization".

        Now about the American wisdom in unification, is it something to learn from them? In the USSR, unification was given the closest attention, in addition to how the platform of the same T-72 became long before the "menagers" learned this word and pulled it by the ears, not realizing that the technology was becoming a platform on a technological, reliable and successful basis, being a well established industry. So, on the basis of the T-72, a huge amount of equipment was created, such as self-propelled guns, armored vehicles, bridgelayers, and other equipment, including those created in other countries.

        Technology is not born as a platform, technology becomes a platform, otherwise we have what we have, when new raw developments are created on a raw basis, spending billions, "pig in a poke". Therefore, speaking about "unification", I agree with the above.
        Unification simplifies life much, but if, God forbid, I made a mistake, then it shortens this very life.


        If you learn anything from the Yankees, how to introduce such "effective managers" to a potential adversary, with "ingenious" economy and optimization, after which you won't have to fight this adversary, everything will fall apart.

        I will add on my own that the real failure in the procurement of weapons in the 90s and XNUMXs, when there was a big mess in the country, gave rise to the current large number of different equipment in the troops, including a large number of Soviet developments.
        The fact that unification is a blessing for the armed forces is obvious, because it was not in vain that directives were given to Grachev in 1994, according to which all types and branches of troops were required to submit lists of unified equipment and weapons for approval until 2005. The work was carried out, but its results did not greatly affect the general situation in the country, and due to the lack of money, almost all new developments that would allow replacing outdated equipment were not carried out. In general, this topic is very painful, and is unlikely to be quickly resolved. But it also makes no sense to panic, especially since some new names of technology mislead people, because, in fact, the unification of components in products is already quite high.
        The fact that the author of the article does not quite understand why, for example, several types of missiles appeared in the Strategic Missile Forces, is obvious to me, because he simply does not know how the struggle went even within the Ministry of Defense over liquid and solid-propellant missiles. But the fact that he proposes to take the Airborne Forces as the main example for the unification of armored vehicles amused me - on the contrary, they need to reduce the presence of armored vehicles in their kind of troops, because its transfer in itself reduces the secrecy of the landing, which apparently the author of the article does not take into account at all.
        In general, the meaning of the article deserves its study, although I disagree with some of the author's conclusions.
        Without going into details, I can only note that the old Soviet samples can be successfully transferred to some of our allies for free, taking into account the fact that they will still have to buy components and consumables from us, and this is already profitable.

And stop playing with unique parachute-landing vehicles - all the same, except during exercises, they cannot be parachuted (in real life, the landing method has become the main one). Moreover, as soon as the Airborne Forces get into a normal war, in a year they will either be reorganized according to states close to motorized riflemen (moreover, on army equipment), or they will acquire attached and subordinate means of reinforcement.
          The first steps have already been taken - the landing party has received a T-72B3 and plans to acquire a full-fledged 152-mm artillery.

            Well no. The Airborne Forces are the troops of the pre-war period or rivalry in the sphere of influence in the respective regions. Here the main thing is to be the first to be on the "meadow", well, whose glade, the picnic. In this regard, these troops are needed. Well, chase all sorts of barmaley.

                If you are attentive, then you have noticed, and I argued that the Airborne Forces are pre-crisis (pre-conflict) in the battle for influence on third countries.

                And in a war with a serious enemy, you need to turn into motorized riflemen with the appropriate weapons (only vests and berets, you can leave).

              This does not require fully airborne units. All airborne operations over the past 70 years were carried out either by landing method, or they generally came to the theater of operations by land.
              And most importantly - what are we going to airborne troops with? Even the USSR, and even with the mobilization of civilian aircraft, could only drop one division.
              And I'm not talking about what we will use to cover the landing zone from the air and isolate it from land.

            I also think that it would be better, and not to try to preserve their connections, but to transfer them to the districts in the form of airborne assault brigades (divisions), as it was during the Soviet era. True, there were no airborne assault divisions in the districts before, but now this can be done.

              It’s not a matter of speed - instead of tanks, the ILC will now have to load, transfer and land the strengthened missile component, our “long arm”. The Yankees changed their concept - the Corps was reoriented to purely naval tasks, abandoning the army-type operations that the ILC conducted in Iraq.

                To be honest, I have not seen reliable information about the change in the priorities of the ILC, which is why I believe that the rejection of heavy armored vehicles is a common concept in the most developed countries of the world, which have more advanced missile and aircraft weapons in their arsenal. So what is happening in the ILC is only a consequence of these changes, which we will come to, including in our Airborne Forces and ground forces. Tanks are doomed and it is already impossible not to notice.

            Now the paratroopers are opposed not by "Fritz" with carbines, but by light mobile armored vehicles, thermal imagers and a bunch of other cute surprises. The meaning of the landing is not secrecy or courage, but in the completion of the task. For example, sometimes it is easier to blow up a crossing not by storming the guards, but by landing one mobile self-propelled gun, which will destroy the target from a distance.

              As I understand it, first, our VKS strikes at the enemy's air defense systems and clears the bridgehead for the landing, and only then the landing is thrown there. By the way, they are not so "naked" if they have portable air defense systems and ATGMs in their arsenal and light means of transportation with all other light weapons.

              The point is to sneak into the enemy's air defense zone without being noticed and not be shot down in the sky - this is what we should be afraid of first of all. The Americans will definitely give our opponents full information about our preparation and the flight route, and therefore a preliminary sweep is mandatory. Otherwise, we will lose landing aircraft, regardless of the fact that they will have personnel or armored vehicles.

In the USA, these are the F15 (one and two seater) in the strike version (analogue of the Su34) and the fighter (analogue of the Su27M or Su35S), and both are now being replaced by a single F-15EX.

    The general message of the article is correct. The topic is relevant. Everyone in the service has probably come across various types of equipment in service in their unit, and knows what kind of hemorrhage it is.
    I had a GAZ-66, of various modifications, so spare parts were not suitable for some models, not to mention the fact that some of them had ceased to be produced .. I had to go to collective farms and to landfills to find something.
    Different batteries came to radio stations in the 90s and early 2000s. There is a working radio station, there is no battery for it. Conversely, there is a battery, but not suitable for radios. Moreover, the industry began to produce 3-volt finger batteries. It was impossible to buy them anywhere, replace them with finger batteries too, because they have a voltage of 1,5 volts.
    Unification must be unambiguous. Where specialization is needed, unique designs are allowed to increase efficiency.
    Old equipment is naturally not necessary to cut into metal. But it is necessary to collect the same type of equipment in a brigade or division, it will be easier to work.

        The whole line can be explained, different machines are needed in the economy, especially for a 300 million country with a climate ranging from tropics to permafrost.

    Nice topic. The author, on the whole, is right, although he went too far.
    In fact, the question should be raised not about unification, but about standardization. That is, we are not talking about the similarity of individual groups of products, but about common approaches to all types of weapons.
    1 First of all, this applies to ammunition (in the sense of cartridges, shells, missiles, bombs, etc.). They should have a series of standard ratings (i.e. dimensions, weight, suspension / articulation with the carrier, electrical and software joints, if any), into which all newly developed products must fit. Then you will not have to alter the carrier for each new ammunition.
    2 The media should be standardized systems that ensure the performance of the same functions (maybe in the form of rows, where otherwise it does not work). Then the cost of carriers (development, manufacturing, maintenance) will be noticeably reduced.
    It is unlikely that it will be possible to standardize the media (at most, unify) - they change too much with the new generation.
    That is, what the author writes about a wide variety of media is for the most part an inflection. Somewhere it was possible, of course, to get by with less variety, but you can't get away from the simultaneous existence of several of their generations - the replacement does not take place at once. In addition, upgrades are sometimes possible to maintain combat properties. At the same time, modernization cannot continue indefinitely - everything has a limit.

        Most are forced to share, but honestly they do not want to do this (or cannot do it if the Ministry of Defense has not unfastened enough). In some areas, these research institutes / design bureaus have good practices, and in some areas there are gaps. And the search for co-executors begins, so that they would close their gaps for a "penny".
        Most often because of these gaps, OCDs and break down. Since the lead contractor and the potential co-contractor cannot agree on the cost of the work. Those, realizing their uniqueness, ask for amounts that they are not willing to pay.

    It is perfectly logical. And here I have a question: why ask these questions in an article, addressing it to ordinary VO readers? Maybe it's time to get on a steam locomotive, come to the same design bureau "Ilyushin", or "MiG" or "UVZ", ask everything that you and the readers have accumulated, and then discuss the answers?

Soon, the United States will be left without a land ICBM at all. And this is not me saying, but American generals)

    I will not say "for the whole of Odessa", I will say about the Strategic Missile Forces:
    I'll start from the end:
    In addition to what is, in 2022 or 2023, the Strategic Missile Forces should receive a new RS-28 "Sarmat" missile ...
    A reasonable question arises: why do we need another rocket? After all, "on the way" the latest missile, which is able to solve all the problems with ICBMs. Which is "Sarmat".

    Then, dear author, that all the reasonable terms of operation indicated by you above in the text "Voevod" (in the world 15A18M) have expired. More than 20, and in some places even 30 years of operation is, you know, a lot. And where is it written that "Sarmat" will solve all "problems"? And who will solve the "problems" until they are fully re-equipped? Rogozinsky trampolines?
    Let's go further:
    1. R-36M2 "Voyevoda"
    - all terms of operation have expired or are coming out (see above)
    2. RN-100N UTTH
    -It is planned to replace it with Yars and as a carrier for Avangard.
    3. RT-2PM "Poplar
    - never stood in mines
    4. RT-2PM2 "Topol-M"
    - stuck in Tatishchevo out of despair, will be replaced little by little by "Yarsy"
    5. RS-24 "Yars"
    - see above. goes to replace.
    In other words, it is planned to keep Sarmatians, Yarsy and a little 15A35 in silos for unclear manipulations with Avangards. LRE, solid propellant rocket engine and HZ for what "Vanguard with the old carrier.
    Let's go even further:
    And plus to them mobile soil complexes "Topol-M" and "Yars".
    Kind of like diversity again, but find what are called 5 external differences between one and the other. Is it a big sin to adopt an intermediate version from "Topol" to "Yars" developed by one design bureau and one parent enterprise with the same subcontractors instead of the crumbling "Topol"?
    Will I open America if I say that a combat system consisting of heterogeneous elements is stable - in our case, liquid-propellant rocket engines and solid propellants, silos and APUs?

      Then, dear author, that all the reasonable terms of operation indicated by you above in the text "Voevod" (in the world 15A18M) have expired.

      The author did not know about this, hence all his fantasies.
      Quote: Moore
      More than 20, and in some places even 30 years of operation is, you know, a lot.

      This is not even that much, but also a direct road to a decrease in combat readiness and the occurrence of emergencies. According to Soviet calculations, all radio electronics of the strategic link should have served no more than 10 years, and as an exception, the service life could be extended to 15 years, and even then with a very thorough check. And already in the Strategic Missile Forces, a change of generations of heavy missiles was to be carried out in every ten-year cycle of weapons programs - this was the guarantee of our security, and everyone who was in the subject understood this.

    Unification loses its meaning after a certain amount. With tanks, this number has been passed for sure.

    With rockets ...

    It's more complicated here. In 10 years, in theory, Sarmat, Bulava and something that will replace Yars should remain. One more missile than the states. This very one rocket is a light land rocket for mobile units, which are not available in the United States.

    the above only shows that the ground forces in the United States are not held in high esteem. Look what they have with aviation and navy.

    From my point of view, there is a healthy grain in the material. Unification is a very good thing. And it makes life incredibly easier for suppliers and repairmen. But you shouldn't bring it to the point of absurdity either. Putting on one sample of weapons is fraught with ... well, if it turns out to be successful ... but if not? And you can't blind two or three cars of the same purpose from identical parts. Although it is possible, probably only the result will disappoint. As for the unification of ICBMs and submarines, the author clearly got excited, IMHO. The circulation of ICBMs and submarines is such that, I think, you can be patient. Moreover, the same boats do not come off the assembly line, but the goods are piece and improvement from one copy to another is a natural thing. Yes, repair and maintenance becomes more complicated, but then a matter of choice: ease of maintenance and repair (logistics) or fighting qualities. Including unification is an excellent thing, but there is no need to bring it to the point of absurdity.

    I agree with the author on many points. Tell me why there were three main battle tanks in the USSR, and their characteristics did not differ much? This is not counting the old machines from T-55 to T-62 standing in service (sorry if I missed anything). But each type of machine needs its own parts, sometimes its own oils and its own fuel. Its excellent training for crews and so on. etc. And this is all money, this is all costs. And so almost everywhere you do not touch. Generals are usually accused of this, because they are all "stupid", "headless" .... And this is the fault of the competition within the domestic military-industrial complex. Many historians have written about the unfair competition of the aircraft designer Yakovlev (also deputy people's commissar) during the war. Now everything is the same. The same trouble is that in Soviet times, weapons are purchased not those that are needed for the war, but those that the military-industrial complex is playing. Well, roughly as with armored personnel carriers, it is convenient for enterprises to produce with rear-mounted engines, no one is interested in the fact that troops are landing behind them all over the world, and with such a system as on domestic armored personnel carriers, more people die. Who is interested in this? And the generals accept everything that they vtemashivayut, otherwise after Syria would not be removed from service as many as 15 (fifteen) items. But someone tested them, someone signed papers

    Strongly for unification, but such an assortment in the RF Armed Forces is a consequence and a consequence of the past. As already mentioned, the Armed Forces plans to move to common platforms everywhere. They will switch, because they began to count money. It's a question of time. And money. My only opinion. Each division must be equipped with the same type of equipment and weapons. And then we sometimes have such an assortment in regiments and battalions ...

    The author is not talking about that, for the same tanks, the Americans are in service with not three of the listed modifications, but more.
    From what I can recall from what I did not understand recently, why the btr-90, which fully meets the requirements of today, having options with the BMP-2 combat module, berezhok and melon, was not adopted for service, but instead they made a boomerang that had nothing in common with a series of Soviet armored personnel carriers, in fact a copy of the VBCI, and never put into service.
    And it's all about the cuts, and the difference between us and the Americans is that they saw the army, but they saw it wisely.

    Unification. Maybe makes the best good. But financially and logistically sound. In the article, our vinaigrette from the Air Force or the Aerospace Forces, or the Navy from each creature, a pair has not yet been voiced. The whole world is striving for unification in order to save money. Russia has its own way. As always.

    Lack of seriality and unification, yes, this is our eternal misfortune. Somewhere this is not critical. For example, with ICBMs - a piece of equipment in itself, which does not imply serious repairs and disassembly during operation. Or in the case of armored vehicles, where not everything is so bad, since in fact we have only two T-72 and T-80 tanks in different modifications, and different tasks still require different equipment. But in the navy, aviation and with small arms (except for the machine gun), yes, the trouble. However, not everything is so simple. Unification is not always good. As an example, you can take a look at our 125mm tank shot, which ran into the length limit, and has been losing to NATO for 30 years. Or, the American naval missile launchers, which, due to, again, the size, practically exclude the development of supersonic and hypersonic anti-ship missiles with adequate warhead mass.

    I respect Roman Skomorokhov for his active life position and the fact that he offers a solution to acute problems. We and Americans are very different. During his service he read a book by an American expert on the armaments of the USSR and America. He believed that unification and constant modernization harmed the troops of America, did not allow the adoption of the latest military developments, why would we cope with the Russians. But the Russians are throwing away all the old and making excellent weapons. Whether it is good or bad, only the war will show. Let different design bureaus and factories compete for them. Monopoly it kills development and progress.

    Definitely a plus! Maximum unification is the most reasonable way towards transparency and cost savings - moreover, it is also a way to extend the functionality of a single platform, if it has outlived its usefulness.
    However, it is likely that the mind still cannot avoid the presence of two types of equipment of the same type at the same time - outgoing and introduced. However, to implement this scheme, the industry must have excess capacities (and good export potential, allowing them to be loaded during empty periods), and the very concept of planning the formation of the appearance of something should be put on a qualitatively different level - so that there is a study and understanding of what requirements should be combat unit and touched it so that it can remain relevant for the conditional 20+ years or more.
    Both, alas, conflict with "social workload" and "effective management."

    ALL living people must be on the Armata. All T-72s must be converted into robotic-controlled tanks in different modifications - a breakthrough tank, a support tank (cutting off infantry - two modifications: a modification with a large-caliber machine gun + a modification of a large-caliber sniper weapon), a radar cover tank, an electronic warfare tank. Stop dreaming about tank armadas with CREWS - where can you get SO MANY trained crews?

    Orderliness and maximum unification is the way that, with a budget of 70 billion dollars, will allow you to create an effective army, spending exactly as much as you need, and not as some as you can. Ten times more.

    The main thing is to use funds in a planned and purposeful manner. Do not build two training centers for twenty naval pilots for whom there is no aircraft carrier. Do not kill billions of money to build ships that are completely unnecessary for the fleet. Not to support unprofitable companies that cannot create a normally flying plane in 30 years.


    the main message runs right through the entire content of the article - with the unification of weapons, the military budget of Russia can be reduced significantly and at the same time the efficiency of the army will also increase.
    Frank and enchanting nonsense. And the most damning thing in the article is that the author offers to learn from the United States, the number of which is 1, the military budget for 281 is 900 billion dollars, while the effectiveness, frankly, is not impressive.
    The fact that Russia has a large number of effective and diverse weapons is like a bone in the throat of someone over the hill, while the effectiveness of the Russian army in Syria has become a very unpleasant and frightening surprise for the West.

    But the point is in the names and no one, except for certain persons, that this is not a brand name. Here is the Singer sewing machine. Although Singer, they can change from release to release, if not outside, then inside. For Singer, the main fact is that it is Singer. But for the army, you need to figure out how to name the same product, but differently, or not at all. Let the "colleagues" rack their brains, and the spies are spinning about what it is and why there is no name, well, why not? He worked at a factory and these are, of course, different products under the numbers, and some may be for civilians, and some for the army. And the product has the same number, but it can go for anything and from different customers.

    Of course, I am not an expert in defense matters, but on the account of unification in production I could argue with the author. It is NOT in North America! Faced this on the very first day of work.
    examples:
    1. Screwdrivers. An ordinary instrument. But here you need to have up to perhaps 20 names of different heads from the usual flat to Robertson of various modifications, Philips, T - bit, Alan and so on. And this is in everyday life and at work.
    2. Keys for bolts and nuts - the same "unification". Each manufacturer of bolts, nuts and various screws pulls the blanket towards itself, releasing heads that are different from the other manufacturer, suitable only for its nuts or screws.
    So in everything. Just business.
    Perhaps the most working unification serves for years in the woodworking industry, when standard sections of sawn wood are produced for the construction of frame houses. In inches: 2x4, 2x6, 2x8, 2x10 and 2x12.
    Unification of course should be, but probably at the block level. I took out the used block and replaced it with a new one.
    I think that engineers in the defense industry are well versed in what they produce, at all not at the level of journalism, where, as always, about everything and about nothing.

    Oh, these fairy tales for me, oh, these storytellers for me. To begin with, Russia is opposing NATO, not the United States. How long will the myth of confrontation with the United States, and not NATO, wander in the Russian media sphere, and when it will finally fade away - I don’t know. Although everything seems to be on the face. NATO has a lot of countries, each of which has its own nomenclature of equipment that does not always coincide with its neighbors. How many MBT tank names does NATO have? How many fighters? The USSR and now Russia is trying to maintain military parity. And for this you need to have as many tanks as you need to contain NATO, and not just the United States. If you churn out as many new tanks as you need and send the old ones straight away for melting, then it will be very costly. Russians will be left not only without annual trips abroad, somewhere in their beloved Thailand, but even without bananas and smartphones. Actually, even the Union could not pull a permanent replacement, so they changed gradually. Therefore, to all those who are eager for a quick modernization of the army according to a single model, I advise themselves to increase taxes by three times. Moreover, it is advisable to personally start selling goods with a high surplus value abroad, or better some kind of intellectual programs like Windows without a material base, and from abroad to buy only what is critically necessary for the country. I also advise you to switch to a Spartan way of life. I doubt that after reading this post a line of future Spartans and ascetic patriots lined up. )))

    Unification is nonsense. For each specific purpose there must be a separate weapon. (for fun, to transfer all guns in Russia to 135 naval caliber .. I can imagine what the SU-25 would look like with such a gun .. BREDED !!
