US General Staff appreciated the evolution of the Russian armed forces

Ordinary armed forces make Russia a regional power, but this country has limited opportunities for global projection of forces, said Vice-Admiral Frank C. Pandolfe, director of the US Strategic Plans and Policies Department of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States Armed Forces. Pentagon 8 April.

This statement was made during a hearing in the Committee on the Armed Forces of the US Congress. “Today, Russia is a regional power, which can project its military power to nearby states, but has very limited opportunities for action on a global scale. Russia has armed forces with an uneven degree of combat readiness. While some units are well trained, others are not. The army suffers from corruption, its logistic capabilities are limited. Equipment is aging, infrastructural, demographic and social problems also inhibit military reform, ”said Randolph.

“US military forces, by contrast, can act globally. The readiness of our armed forces is high, we cooperate with NATO, the most successful military organization in storieswhich includes 28 countries. If Russia decides to attack one of the countries of the alliance, it will understand that our commitment to collective defense is unshakable, and our reaction will be quick, ”said the Vice-Admiral.

At the peak of its military power, the Soviet Union was a truly global competitor, says Randolph. “Under the gun were millions of soldiers, there were a huge number tanks and aircraft, the USSR had a navy of global influence, had an extensive infrastructure for intelligence collection. The Soviet war machine posed a real threat, ”he said.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the Russian military potential also “collapsed”. “From the very beginning of his presidency in 2000, the president (Vladimir Putin) made military modernization one of the priorities of the Russian government,” said Randolph. When Russia invaded Georgia in the 2008 year, a number of shortcomings in the training and equipment of the army were noticed. This prompted the Russian government to increase military allocations and improve the combat capability of the armed forces. These efforts have had some success, he noted. “Their overall combat readiness has improved, the most elite units are well trained and equipped. Now they use more complex types of combat, organizational changes have taken place. Russia has relied on the creation of rapid reaction forces using special forces, paying more attention to information and cyber warfare, ”said Randolph. The practice included sudden military exercises, which cause strategic uncertainty in Russia's intentions, and the question is how quickly the armed forces will be able to go over to offensive operations from the moment of combat training.

Obviously, Russia currently holds large military contingents near the border with Ukraine. “This is a matter of deep concern for all states in the region and beyond. We are closely following Russia and the movements of its troops, ”said Randolph.

The admiral also noted that he recently spoke with the commander of the European command of the US Armed Forces, General Philip M. Breedlove. “He is developing recommendations for submission to the NATO Council to be held on April 15. These recommendations will be directed to the continued support of our NATO allies. As part of these efforts, the issue of increasing the number of military exercises and the deployment of additional troops will be considered, which will increase our military presence at sea, air and land. Breedlove will introduce members of Congress about these measures as soon as possible, ”Randolph concluded.

          He is a peacock. What does a self-confident peacock.
          I am not trying to underestimate NATO, but recent campaigns suggest that one should not rely too much on a NATO soldier in a collision with a real enemy. NATO is able to fight under the condition of a numerical advantage and the absence of an advanced air defense system in the adversary. In none of the campaigns did they encounter serious resistance at the initial stage of the war. Winning on paper, NATO in fact was unable to conquer either Afghanistan, Libya, or Iraq.
          In other words, NATO, having good military potential, did not learn how to work not only to develop the result, but even to maintain it.

        I liked about the army logistics. Americans carry tanks and infantry fighting vehicles on trailers. They will not last long under their own power. One march and it's time to repair. And for ours on the go to battle - the usual practiced technique.
        Although the admiral made a statement there. He apparently believes that if the fleet moved into a given area, then this is a victory. Generally strange statements for senior staff

          What is that?
          Or does the admiral think that global projection is when boats sail to the shores of a banana republic?
          So we don’t need such a projection on hell.

      More like a whining of a shot rabbit. See, God forbid, of course, how NATO will behave when it comes to a serious war. And this is the mobilization of all of Russia, all industry, the majority of the population and other surprises in warehouses. We are ready, not the first time, But Germany with its 200 tanks? Yes, and that in their understanding of the projection of force, the supply that the allies in the bloc provide them with is not a big deal, not realizing that they are a priority goal. Or do they naively believe that they can capture Iran for example? The same Operation against Iraq was being prepared for many months.

    Empty words. Why Russia needs to project a global threat is not clear.
    There is a strategic nuclear forces. In an extreme case, a regional power will destroy the whole world and all. Point. At least call it regional, even backward, even a power of the African-Asian level of development.
    We should not be hot or cold from this. Their generals, who have never fought with an equal adversary, cannot adequately assess something. The bombing of Sarbia and the backward countries of Asia does not count. There it was possible to beat in a crowd like in a dark alley to beat a passer-by with a crowd of thugs. As regards us, things won't go so easily. So they wander around as they can, gain "confidence", but all this is similar to the Chechen dance "dhikr" in 95, when the "warriors" running in a circle and rhythmically moving shouting mantras in one voice, thus catching up with a hypnotic attitude.
    Conclusion: The sanctions of Europe and the USA, their threats in the military sphere, exercises near our borders and support for Ukrov are also a kind of dhikr, only the Russians do not perceive it, because we are a cultural, highly moral and civilized nation that does not and will not understand medieval dances.

    By and large, the admiral is right, but the matter is in time for another 6-10 years and we will not have separate units, but the entire rapid reaction army, but about the success of NATO, this is complete nonsense and about the fact that they, like a monolith, will stand up for any of their own " member "the same. They can fight, and then only collectively with countries that have no history of victories, which have weapons from 60-70s. and in which society is morally corrupted by various contradictions.

    All the battles and wars lost by Russia (how few there are!) - exclusively "merit" of foreign generals and the betrayal of their leaders (capitulation at Narva in 1700; surrender of Port Arthur, etc.)
    The Russian soldier has no equal in the Eastern Hemisphere in its fighting qualities; and in the West - we’ll check it soon.

    In the 41st, we didn’t even know what logistics was, but in the 45th, everyone found out what a Russian soldier is!
    Amer’s thinking is not much better than Hitler’s, but the end will be the same.

    They have an army because they are immoral, there are few who even understand what the Motherland is with a capital letter, and not just a piece of land where they were born, but whoever understands this becomes a war from a simple soldier.

    the most successful military organization in history

    A dubious statement, the most successful can be called, for example, the military organization of Alexander the Great.

    And what Randolph wanted the war was, our people defended the country! And the country collapsed into a heavy burden. But the country has risen from its knees, and we are now in it. And now we are not the same as before! Everything in due time, and there will be weapons. "And we will give you a rocket, you will glow in the dark and save on electricity." (well, I'm joking already): D

    For the destruction of most of the United States and Western Europe, the resources of the Russian army will be enough.

    Stinking goat! He appreciated! I would have appreciated the Pentagon Navy seals better, from the madhouse, when they allegedly took Ben Laden, the whole operation was blocked and two expensive helicopters were destroyed, and in Somalia: they rescued hostages - they ran farther than they saw, and besides, they left expensive special equipment, and the hostages, so and they didn't save - the vaunted gandons "! So let him evaluate his own. We have something to fight for and something to stand for! We have a Motherland, and they have a state!"

    Conventional armed forces make Russia a regional power, but this country has limited opportunities for global projection of forces, said Vice Admiral Frank S. Randolph, Director of Strategic Planning and Policy at the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Armed Forces


    Calms himself

    If Russia decides to attack one of the countries of the alliance, it will understand that our commitment to collective defense is unshakable, and our reaction will be quick, ”said the Vice Admiral.

    Well, it’s in vain, many of the greatest clever people said that you shouldn’t get involved with the Russians, don’t! The history confirms, and you, pe ... yuk, we are left out if the Motherland demands angry

    [quote = Arhj] I do not try to underestimate NATO, but recent campaigns give reason to believe [/ quote]
    [quote = Army1]

    I completely agree. With the armed forces of developed countries, in terms of defense and attack, NATO and the same are not ready for those losses in LS, as well as the citizens of their countries, the more I think that they are far from ready for a war to destroy, the wallet is more expensive, which almost does not apply to us, and I think verbal diarrhea will pass with relative success, and it will be like in the USSR, gentlemen must be considered with those who can and are ready. hi

    The soldier’s sapper on the cover made me very happy; in skillful hands this is a weapon of mass destruction.

    I liked about the army logistics. Americans carry tanks and infantry fighting vehicles on trailers.

    Correctly transported, only across the continent. And between continents, as a rule, they are transported with the help of Russian transport aircraft. With the direct use of the An-124 "Ruslan". Without our "Ruslans" they carry weakly. Their S-17 and S-5 can only shoot in cool documentaries and tell that they are smarter and stronger, and in general they are a direct universal stronghold of happiness and democracy.
    What did he say in the article - this is for the Americans. They hawl and will hawth this nonsense. Zadornov has long told the whole truth about their intelligence.
    Yes, Russia may not even have risen to its feet, but if they talked about it, then the fifth point began to coward.
    And the Americans did not know how to fight and still cannot. If you look at all NATO wars, then all serious or dangerous operations are done by "EURO slaves". And if Americans are launched, then these are, as a rule, representatives of African Americans (sorry, but from the point of view of correctness I called them that) and Mexicans. And then all these warriors-heroes under the bridges live as great veteran bums. Instead of monuments, they love to do heroes as homeless people, they honor it like that.
    America has never fought on its land, except for their civil war, it was also a suspicious war ... They don’t know what it is to defend their Country, their People and their Earth ... And this factor is sometimes stronger than rockets, shells and bombs. And near Moscow, in Stalingrad, in Brest, in Kursk, Sevastopol and many, many cities in the 40s, we proved that even with one rifle we win four. Let them bark and know that we are getting on our feet. And we will! We will be soon!

    I had to work and communicate with Danes, Germans, British, Spaniards. And now, in my opinion, NEVER, they will not climb on us, especially for Ukraine. They have a sacred good home, a computer, work in the office (not with their hands!), Coffee and, most importantly, great care for their dearest, extremely unique life and health. It never occurs to them to risk their precious tender carcasses. They do not give birth to children either, because they believe that they take away most of their life, which can be spent on pleasure. But there is only one "Satan" in Brussels and the end of all this fun. Well, for what? It is more difficult with the United States - they have been corrupted by the impunity of the past decades, but self-loving people are in the majority there too.
