        Obama comes to a fortune teller.
        - Listen, they say there will be a third world war. Do not know when? - He turns to the fortuneteller.
        “I know,” the fortuneteller answers, “in a few years.”
        “Do you know who will win it?”
        “I know, but I can't tell you.”
        “Well, tell me then, how much will a Coca-Cola can cost in Washington after the war?”

    A Brazilian company Odebrecht and the Russian company Russian Technologies signed a memorandum of intent to create a joint venture for the assembly of Mi-171 helicopters in Brazil, as well as a technical center for servicing helicopter Mi-35.
    But the most impressive was the proposal by the Brazilians to purchase in Russia the technology for the production of anti-aircraft missile-cannon systems "Shell-C1" at the enterprises of Odebrecht, Avibras and Embraer.

        The Russian Navy has no missions. In the sense in the state in which they are now - there are no tasks, they are not good for anything. Even Gorshkov once said: "We have created an ineffective fleet." Russia needs an aircraft carrier. You can order the same as the Britons.

        I will say it again: Gorshkov himself said in his farewell speech "we have created an incapable fleet." He has no tasks, the Navy has something, but with an aircraft carrier - will appear. Russia has no aircraft carriers.

        1985 was the last year of leadership of the Soviet Navy S.G. Gorshkovym. Let us turn to the estimates that he gave in the last month of his tenure as commander in chief. It was the last, with more than two-hour speech of the elderly commander in front of the fleet leaders practically on all the problems of the Soviet Navy during the 1984-1985 years. The 2 performance on November 1985 took place from 15 hours 15 minutes to 17 hours 50 minutes without a break. These were the results of two years of activity of all fleets, as well as an explanation of the instructions of the Minister of Defense of the USSR for the next two years - 1986 and 1987. The central idea was what measures should be taken and what should be done to master the ability to fight.

        [...]

        In the speech, a high percentage of accidents, a low level of practical preparedness of personnel in the struggle for survivability were noted: they do not even know how to use IPS (isolating gas masks) on a submarine, do not perform NBJ, etc. Low discipline. As a result, said the commander in chief, before 2 November 1985 (for less than a year) 306 people died, 1325 sailors were convicted. He also said that over the past year and a half, 500 officers and 1000 midshipmen were fired from the Navy due to drunkenness.

        We cited all these facts only to present a picture of the state of the fleets. On November 2, 1985, Sergei Georgievich said so: the fleets (meaning the Northern Fleet, Pacific Fleet, Baltic Fleet, Black Sea Fleet) are not ready to fight at sea.

    Window dressing? Well, West-81 exercises, for example, when tanks were built in beautiful lines and fotkali from a helicopter.


    Exercises Zapad-81 are one of the largest operational-strategic exercises in the history of the Soviet Armed Forces (only about 100 thousand servicemen). In scale, they are comparable only to major operations during the Great Patriotic War. During the exercises Zapad-81 for the first time the automated control system and some types of high-precision weapons were tested.

    During the exercises, an offensive operation was practiced, a massive landing in the rear of a mock enemy. The landing component of the exercise took place in March 1981 at the Gornosulin training ground (northern Poland). The paratroopers practiced interaction with the armies of the Warsaw Pact countries. Airborne units performed the functions of reconnaissance and sabotage units. The 4th and 5th brigades participated from the GRU Spetsnaz. The final phase of the exercise was the landing of the 7th Guards Airborne Division on the training ground near Minsk. The regiment landed in full force with equipment, including 3 crews inside the BMD. This was preceded by two training landings without equipment. For participation in the exercises, many ordinary participants were awarded orders and medals. Orders and medals were received by all brigade commanders, 92 percent of regiment commanders, 55 percent of commanders of ships of the 1st and 2nd rank and divisions. "

If you manage to lay a tactical nuclear charge there, then you can quite cheaply level their imperial attempts to world hegemony. But so that no one would know of course.

          The idea, of course, is not mine ...
          But it was discussed on the "branch" about the "dead hand".
          But in this way, "washing" the Tin Islands is risky. Too close to our shores.
          But the train of thought is correct - away from us, with minimal losses.
          It would only be problematic to establish an NW correctly - the North Sea is small, and the Faroe-Icelandic border in the north.

            I did not participate in that discussion. I try not to plagiarize, I indicate the sources. This topic surfaced by itself. There were arguments, about 10 years or more ago, due to earthquakes in the Far East. Then it shook on Sakhalin, and Kamchatka, as usual. Assumptions have been made regarding seismic stability. Well, for the "tattoo", thanks, I'll take a look.

      And, in general, you are aware that "More than 100 British servicemen of the famous Coldstream Infantry Guards of Her Majesty fell ill with SCALES !!!
      As the newspaper "Mail on Sunday" notes, "the disease was apparently brought from Germany, from where a unit of the Coldstream Regiment recently returned from exercises."

    In Britain in 2013-2015, about two dozen ships and submarines will be cut into scrap metal. Already decided by parliament, as there is no money for maintenance.

    The Germans have nothing to shun. Without a nuclear missile weapon, the Bundeswehr is simply a large police force.
