Strategic counterargument



The Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, held a special event last week in importance. Under his leadership, a training of the highest military command was held at the National Center for Defense Management of the Russian Federation (NTSUO), at which issues of the practical use of formations and military units of missile forces and artillery aviation and air defense to destroy ground groups and repel an enemy missile and air strike, as well as launch a retaliatory counter-strike by Russian nuclear deterrence forces (SNF). In fact, Russia's readiness for a global military clash was checked.

The nature of all tasks performed was defined by the concept of "massed". It reflected both the scale of the offensive actions of the conditional enemy, and the response measures of the Russian Armed Forces. The main goal of the training was: to test the control system of the military structures of the country, the reliability of passing training orders and signals from the National Center of Control and Administration to command posts of formations and military units in the Strategic Missile Forces, Aerospace Defense Forces and Long-Range Aviation. The event attracted strategic bombers, submarine missile carriers of the Pacific and Northern fleets, mobile ground-based missile systems of strategic purpose, forces and means that solve the tasks of aerospace defense, formation of missile forces and artillery of the Southern and Central military districts. It was a day of really massive rocket launches on the territory of the Russian Federation and ... near abroad.

The most powerful and high-precision views weapons, in fact, at the same time applied at several landfills at once. The troops of the Southern Military District and Central Military District, reflecting the invasion of numerous ground forces of the conditional enemy, conducted firing with multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) "Uragan" and "Grad". The gunners destroyed the car columns, command posts and positions of conditional enemy units at the Chebarkul training ground near Chelyabinsk. To assess the effectiveness of hitting targets, unmanned aerial vehicles of domestic production were used, the video signal from which was transmitted in real time to the NTSUO. And at the Kapustin Yar test site in the Astrakhan region, the most long-range Russian MLRS Smerch fired. In addition, there were successful launches of the Iskander-M operational tactical complexes capable of carrying nuclear warheads.

The grouping of air defense and aviation of the Southern Military District at the Ashuluk training ground repulsed a massive missile strike from a conditional enemy aircraft. The combat crews of the C-300, Buk-М1 and Pantsir-S anti-aircraft complexes covered the conditional area from air strikes, having successfully repulsed a training air strike. As the commander of the Southern Military District troops reported to the president, they succeeded in destroying all the target missiles that imitated targets.

A successful interception of a short-range antimissile ballistic target was carried out at the Priozersk (Kazakhstan) training ground. By combining the missile defense of the command of the air defense and missile defense of the aerospace defense forces, the tasks of repelling again a massive nuclear missile strike were successfully accomplished. The combat crews of the Armed Forces of the East Kazakhstan region discovered and executed the tracking of ballistic targets with a practical launch of antimissiles from the Amur complex.

As part of the training missile submarine strategic cruiser North fleet Tula and the Pacific Fleet Podolsk launched ballistic missiles from the Barents and Okhotsk Seas. As noted in the Ministry of Defense, launches of sea-based missiles were made from underwater position. "According to telemetry and observation posts, the warheads of the missiles arrived at the appointed time at the Chizh training grounds in northern Russia and the Kura in north-eastern Russia," said an official spokesman for the military. Well, a warhead of the RS-12M Topol intercontinental ballistic missile was delivered to Kura (Kamchatka Peninsula), the launch of which was carried out by the Strategic Missile Forces combat calculations from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome.

It remains to add that, on ground targets at a military range of the Western Military District, a strategic missile carrier Tu-95MS launched cruise missiles. These launches were carried out by the so-called revolving method, when in a row six cruise missiles hit ground targets simulating key objects of the military infrastructure of a conditional enemy.

“Strategic nuclear forces have demonstrated the ability to launch intercontinental ballistic missiles as soon as possible. This testifies to the high technical readiness of the entire group of strategic nuclear forces, ”Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu reported to the president at the end of the training session. And he also said that before 2021, the number of carriers of high-precision weapons is planned to be quadrupled.

The minister considered it necessary to emphasize the planned nature of the training. She was scheduled back in November last year. Nevertheless, the current situation in the world shows that such a large-scale event to test the SNF and the entire arsenal of Russian missile weapons turned out to be very useful. It was not by chance that at the meeting in the Kremlin on the same day with the presidents of Armenia, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, Vladimir Putin stressed: “We all had the opportunity to see high readiness and coherence of the actions of the group of strategic offensive and defensive forces of the country ... She, being a reliable guarantor of sovereignty and territorial integrity of Russia, plays a significant role in ensuring global and regional security ".

The heads of all four of these states that are members of the Collective Security Treaty Organization were also present at the National Defense Management Center of the Russian Federation in training. The President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, stated after her that “the Armed Forces could not afford such training even in the times of the Soviet Union.” Than once again emphasized the immeasurably increased capabilities of Russia and its allies for the prevention and, if necessary, guaranteed retribution for attempting armed aggression against the CSTO countries.

      As regards the nuclear deterrence forces, Russia in the 90 was quite capable of crushing anyone. It is possible that precisely because of this, they did not gobble up it during the reign of Yeltsin ...

        I’m wondering, our submarines are on alert. That is, to the eyeballs of loaded missiles with nuclear, rather than imitation warheads. How are training starts made in this case? Indeed, during the campaign, it is impossible to remove the real warhead and put the training one on board.
        This means that either the boats on the database do not participate in the exercises, or one or two launch mines are equipped with non-combat missiles.

        Who knows more about this side of the issue? Give an explanation?

          According to the OBS. Our RPSNs are "in a cycle" in accordance with the schedule of use. Delivery of the tasks of the BP course, admission to acceptance on board of products, preparation for autonomy, control exit (acceptance on board of products), quietly leave at night at 2 m-ts, return, post-hike PPO and PPR, it is possible to continue the DB at the pier, rest and again in a circle. BUT! there are questions of technical readiness when a unit falls out of schedule. Each of them is personally registered with the General Staff and General Staff. Use cases are identified and planned in advance. "Yo-burg" in 2006 from the North Pole fired at Chizha, naturally with a blank, although the boat was autonomous. So the question of loading and using is a question of GT and no one will tell you anything, only in general terms.

          On the whole, I was not interested in the issue, but with regards to the past exercises, I can definitely say that shortly before the exercises (within a couple of weeks), almost all of our Kamchatka boats went abruptly.
          And so, in principle, I can take an interest ... Maybe they will say if the information is not labeled ...

      Paradoxically (especially for Western countries), a patriotic revolution unnoticed took place in Russia. And this is good news. The prestige of the army, especially the emergence of the "polite people" brand, is a powerful tool. And there is no need to talk about the political rating of our president, any Western politician would sell his soul for such ratings.

"Novomoskovsk" by shooting disposed of 16 SLBMs, which did not arrive at the range, and after a certain time, self-destructed. Neither long-range aviation, nor the Pacific Fleet, nor units of the Strategic Missile Forces were involved in the NSNF exercises.

      To do this, it’s enough to slam off with the nuclear submarines not from the territorial waters of Russia, but through a half-ball. Only this is fraught with the fact that the American NORAD will lose their nerves and then a real military launch will take place at the instances.

    Positive news. Especially against the backdrop of the "flickering" of weapons by Western "partners". I think the fighting efficiency of the army is one of the best proofs of a strong state. Let there be re-equipment, let there still be a lot of roughness in certain types of troops, the fact itself already speaks volumes. And there is no need to look at the opinion of the so-called "world community"; they sleep and see how they dance on the bones of a defeated bear. And then ..... in the mouth to the tonsils!

      It's not about scale, but about the level of learning. Of course, the USSR Armed Forces were many times more powerful and worse for the enemy, this is undeniable, but now the level of exercises is different, with capabilities that meet modern times.

        The opportunity is when in 72 to approach Gibraltar and destroy the communications of enemies.

    The right way, comrades. And then in the West and the United States for many years formed the stereotype of the Russian army - a drunken ensign pulling everything from the warehouses in order to somehow feed the family. And here it’s for you, it turns out everything shoots and flies. Yes, and not some 50 year old junk, but all some sort of new samples. Yes, and in the eyes of the leaders of the CSTO countries, it was clear that they were pleasantly surprised, or rather, a special gleam in the eyes was probably visible. Damn it’s nice that we finally get up from our knees.

    A very interesting thing. And from where ??? From Iran ????.
    Everything is there with us more or less, but from the side of the North Pole it’s not very good, but MIG 31 BM is still in a virgin state. The production line is standing, the plane isn’t doing it, those in the ranks will end soon, and we all reflect. Duma thinks. Stupidity must be reflected.

    What is there to comment on? People are trying, before the war, little time is left. But the fifth colony (including in the army and military-industrial complex) is also crap, as it can, sabotaging any initiative that leads to an increase in the country's power. And if we do not remove these metastases from the state machine, the country's disease will not be cured. We’ll start fighting again, as in 5 — from scratch.

    The deal with China, by and large, fell through. Sadly to admit. Why is there no article on this topic? Or, again, will we "shout" about the events of almost 2 weeks ago? Conducted large-scale exercises - good! We must move on. What's next? Further, an indistinct reaction to the referendums in Donetsk and Luhansk regions, and failure (perhaps that is why - who wants to go for a serious exacerbation with the United States, even in conjunction with Russia - a country that cannot - does not want - even to truly protect ethnically its citizens ) in Pekin. Well, these "citizens" are basically also good: they are shot, killed, burned, poisoned, and they are filming everything on their mobile phones, and they earn money in mines and factories - they have to feed their families ..., in short, full.

      I want to add a little on my own: China I understand perfectly the dependence of Russia on itself (China) and therefore it became twist Russia's hands on gas prices. They even said on the news that virtually all the questions had been removed. EXCEPT the issue of gas prices for China.
      And this is the MOST important and strategic issue not only for Russia but also for Russia's opponents. After all, if the contract is not signed, then Russia can very easily "twist its hands" in economic and political terms.
      As for TV, I will say this: the information war to the fullest. And whether someone likes it or not, but Russia is still losing it.
