Challenges and Plans: A Series of Armed Forces Development Meetings

31

Last week, on May 25-27, Sochi hosted another series of meetings on the development of the armed forces and the military-industrial complex. The leaders of the country, the ministries of defense and industry reviewed recent successes, studied current challenges and clarified plans for the future.


Defense issues

The series included three meetings chaired by President Vladimir Putin. The Ministry of Defense at these events was represented by the head of the department Sergei Shoigu, the chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov, the commanders-in-chief of the branches of the armed forces and the heads of directorates. Also present at the meeting were Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev, Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov, Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov and other heads of departments.

The topic of the first meeting of the series was to determine ways for the further development of the defense industry and the armed forces. At the same time, a reserve is being created for the further development of the future State Armaments Program, which will be executed until 2034.

During the second meeting, the current issues of the implementation of the state defense order were discussed. We examined the specifics of the implementation of plans last and this year, against the background of epidemic and economic problems. They also discussed the development of fundamentally new samples that will enter the troops in the future.


At the third meeting, the development of several specific areas was discussed - strike weapons, including precision weapons, as well as some models for the aerospace forces. The generated proposals will be used in further planning.

Recent successes


During three sessions, President V. Putin announced the latest successes of the defense industry and the armed forces. So, last year, despite the known difficulties, the state defense order was fulfilled by 99,8%. The established production processes and the pace of research and development work have been preserved.

Rearmament continues, based on already mastered and new models. So, the army received the latest hypersonic complex "Avangard". The "Dagger" complex is in operation - 160 flights with similar products have been performed as part of combat duty. The Zircon anti-ship missile, intended for the Navy, is already at the last stage of state tests.

The supply of various weapons and equipment, already mastered in production, continues. In this context, the President listed the Kh-101 and Caliber cruise missiles, Iskander complexes, multiple launch rocket systems and aviation bombs. These products significantly expand the combat capabilities of individual combat arms and the armed forces as a whole.

The rearmament of the air defense and missile defense forces continues. According to V. Putin, by now more than 70% of anti-aircraft missile regiments have been transferred to modern S-400 systems. In addition, tests of the promising S-500 are nearing completion, and the delivery of such equipment to the troops is "next in line".


The production and supply processes are ongoing right now. So, on May 26, the President noted that the industry is building and modernizing 20 ships of the far sea zone. The construction and renovation of 145 aircraft and helicopters is also ongoing. Such work must be completed on time.

Assigned tasks


At the first meeting, the main tasks were formed. It is necessary to determine the ways for the further development of the armed forces, and in these processes it is necessary to use a systematic approach and maintain a balance. You also need to take into account current trends and changes in foreign armies.

Strategic nuclear forces remain a key factor in stability and security. Their improvement must be given the most serious impact. Recently, a serious groundwork has been created in this area, including Avangard and other new systems, and it needs to be developed.

The third strategic goal is the analysis of capabilities and needs, which will ensure the preparation of the future State Armaments Program. Work in this direction has already begun, and the President demands to complete them on time.

At the second meeting, the development of specific directions was considered. So, they raised the topic of modernizing the space group and ensuring its interaction with other components of the armed forces. Also, the attention of the country's leadership was paid to the most complex and knowledge-intensive spheres. The issues of development of robotic, hypersonic and laser systems were discussed separately. Unfortunately, the details of this discussion were not disclosed.


During the third meeting, the prospects of military transport aviation were considered. The President noted the particular importance of this type of troops, and also pointed to the existing successes. Due to the efforts of the defense industry, the operation of heavy An-124 aircraft continues, and state tests of the light Il-112V are being carried out. The production of the IL-76 of the latest modification has been resumed.

At the same time, it is noted that the available indicators of military transport aviation do not meet the needs of the Ministry of Defense. It is necessary to increase the production of equipment, and due to this, to bring the aircraft fleet in the Aerospace Forces to the required size. The meeting identified the measures necessary to address such problems.

Development priorities


The main discussions in the series of meetings were held in a closed format. Consequently, the main decisions, recommendations and plans remain unknown. However, in the open section, enough interesting information was sounded, which allows us to draw some conclusions.

In general, the Russian leadership intends to continue the development of the armed forces. Work that has already begun is continuing, and a new rearmament program is being drawn up. It starts in 2024 and will be carried out until 2033, which places special demands on forecasting and planning.


As follows from recent statements, incl. made in Sochi, the Russian leadership plans to develop all components of the armed forces at the same time. At the same time, more attention will be paid to some areas, due to the higher importance and responsibility. First of all, the strategic nuclear forces will receive special support - as in previous years.

It should be noted that in the published statements, the processes of the development of the ground forces and the naval fleet... At the same time, as Izvestia writes with reference to its source, more attention was paid in the initial plans for the meetings of the modernization of the Navy. In particular, it was proposed to discuss the development and construction of aircraft carriers and destroyers of the Leader type.

It can be assumed that the minimum attention to the army and navy at the past meetings is associated with successes in these areas. Their rearmament continues and generally meets the requirements. Thanks to this, the leadership of the country and the armed forces can focus on other issues, for example, on increasing the quantitative and qualitative indicators of military transport aviation. It also becomes possible to allocate additional resources to other areas.

Today and tomorrow


Thus, the processes of development of the defense industry and modernization of the armed forces continue and are accompanied by noticeable successes. At the same time, there are some difficulties and new challenges. For this, new plans are being developed and the necessary opportunities are being sought - one of the measures in this direction is regular meetings at the highest level.

As practice shows, holding such meetings allows you to identify new problems in time and respond to them. In addition, in the course of such events, plans are drawn up for the future, which will determine the appearance of the army in the future. Now we are talking about drawing up a new State Armaments Program for 2024-33, and therefore each new summit meeting is of particular importance.

    If the authorities seriously believe that we are making progress in re-equipping the fleet, then they are infinitely far from reality.

      to whom INTO, and "parikhmacher" about the hairdryer
      first calculate and write down the cost of supplying AUG (2 or 3?) in the areas of the patrol post; repairs - caprem, naval base (no one),
      I do not understand "stability" surrounded by "partners" in the Norwegian Sea or the Okhotsk-Yapsky Sea, or where will you put them? maybe in the area of ​​Hawaii or Orkey Islands? you can go to Havana or La Plata

      For 300 years of expanding the territory of Russia-USSR, we did not "sew" it with transport and settlement. Europe passed this stage by the early-middle of the 19th century (that's why they remember Napoleon + at that technological level) - then imperialism, and we still need to invest the loot in our country, not before export ...

      MAIN NOW FOR 10-20 YEARS - RETURN CATTLE AND SHEEP WITH GOATS TO THE LEVEL OF 1980-OLIPIAD-80. THEN WANTED.

      outside the big letters and points of the programs - fertility is the optimism of girls (52% of the female population) for 30-50 years ahead before the birth of their first child and before ... "like a lobster before China."
      but it’s scary for everyone to think of such thoughts, not even to carry them out, there is no dough (with or without offshore companies) and balls in EdRa colors at congresses .------ only diapers and manure from milk for baby food. 30-50 years - over the horizon of investment planning. and even the lives of your ABs.

        Why? :) Do you seriously think that along with the growth of cattle more than twice the income of the population will also grow and everyone will start cracking beef every day, drinking it with high-quality milk? Do you have any idea that your proposed increase would require doubling your consumption of meat and dairy products?

          for a city dweller and a parasite on state support, this would be a normal answer, but you must understand the prospects for the development of the world, our environment and our actions in such a serpentarium.
          Cattle and others is independence and self-sufficiency in all basic support) more than food) + psychology "all with your own mind and work" without foreign investments and advisers settle, etc., in PM see France)

          and fertility is no comment. just another organization of life without nightclubs and striptease and alcohol, etc. kayfa. DR UPBRING OF THOSE 52% OF GIRLS. but they will require other priorities of state construction.

          We had a GPV with plans to build a certain number of ships, quite definite classes.
          - and good - GPV in the fleet did not suit, apparently many and a skiff for her, --- see EdRo and lovely bankers + partners on the outskirts did not inspire confidence even earlier.

          For some reason I think - having built AB we will sell them in 10-20 years to Nigeria or Angola - to conquer the shelf against Brazil.

            for a city dweller and a parasite on state support, this would be a normal answer

            You have been asked a specific question. If it is not clear, I will further elaborate on it.
            Today, on average, 1 citizen of the Russian Federation eats 76,5 kg of meat, of which 34 kg of poultry meat and 27,5 kg of pork, 15 kg remain for cattle and others.
            Let's say you have doubled your cattle population. Accordingly, you need to eat not 15, but 30 kg of cattle meat. By what means? By reducing the number of pigs by more than half? Or by reducing the number of poultry by almost half? That is, death to pigs, you give bulls, so what?
            Or do you suggest cracking 15 kg more meat? And increase your meat consumption from 91,5 kg? 250 grams a day for each person, including children? Nothing will crack, for an hour? :)

            According to modern research, a person aged 18-40 years old, who does not have excess weight and digestive problems, needs 40-50 g of animal protein per day. For older people this figure is 30 g, and for children - from 20 to 35 g. Considering that 100 g of meat fiber contains 14-25 g of protein, the rate of meat consumption is:
            150-180 g per day for men (with heavy physical labor, it is allowed to use up to 220 g);
            130-150 g for women;
            50-100 g for children and the elderly.

              how everything is running - meat .... do you consider import? or your own? and export? with your own labor - the main thing is not to buy everything you need for petrodollars.
              LOOK AT THE BELARUSIAN STATION - THERE IS A HERO, THE DIRECTOR BEFORE LEAVING TO FRIENDS REPRESENTED THE YOUNG DEPUTY - FULFILL THE PLAN AT YOUR CAPACITY AND DO NOT WAIT FOR PARTS FROM A CHEAP SUPPLIER.

              A DOLLAR IN THE EYES - LIKE SCROOGE McDUCK --------- AGAINST INDEPENDENCE.
              once again: accountants will not understand and will put downsides. but that is how they won in 41-45 - at any price with a reduction in costs - you wrote about the cost of T34. but not aglitskie and amerskie !!!!!!!!!
              .
              and close the market from imports. WTO hurts us more or doesn't help us
              there was a time France was driving "French" meat from Hungary.

              how do you identify threats from Afgan? -the Yankees leaving, then? Syria? Iraq? Refugees --- wrote - 5-6 million in Chelyab, how many will you take or in the Ural and Astana regions there will be executions? so as not to be familiar.
              How fast will Kazakhs and Uzbeks, Azerbzhs and Turkmens ask for money? dry put troops and Rosgvardia is able to cover 6 tkm so !!!!!!!!!!
              idle talk ---- execute the GVP subparagraphs -without AB. with videoconferencing and space, etc. + Sukhput and not against NATO - they will hire them - they will row the heat with someone else's hands.
              then there is no point with military strategists - the dispute runs into straight lines.

              do not fight - they will shit. to do mischief on trifles, as with Booth, for the intention of arresting and crushing diplomats. accidentally on the roads
              anything.
              how and where will you deploy the AUG, the supply and the naval base are fast ???????????? - I was asked about meat - also answer ..... I don't need - Siluanova and Gref (his "pro-Putin" assets will suddenly be arrested)

              how to get out of Switzerland 1-5-10 billion dollars from under arrest with your AUG?

                At the same time, about 230-250 thousand of imported meat in 2020 was imported into the Russian Federation from Belarus.

              They wrote something strange.
              requires 40-50 g of animal protein per day

              Actually, it is not enough in the region of 1 gram of protein per gram of weight (not only of an animal, of course, but it is still the main source of protein.)
              For older people, this figure is 30 g.

              No, the need for older people is increasing.
              Considering that 100 g of meat fiber contains 14-25 g of protein, the rate of meat consumption is:

              It does not, because not every gram of protein eaten is absorbed by the body.

              But in general, yes, overeating is also not worth it :).

                In addition, a large amount of protein is found in cottage cheese, yogurt, eggs, kefir, milk (8 grams of protein in a glass of milk), rolled oats, broccoli ... in general, there is a lot of everything :)
