In five years, the Russian army will become professional at 70 percent.

In five years, the Russian army will become professional at 70 percent.The encouraging news for recruits was heard yesterday from the mouth of the Chief of General Staff Nikolai Makarov.


He was on a business trip in Transbaikalia, in particular, he checked how combat training was organized at the Zugol training ground. And during a meeting with journalists, he told what would happen to the Armed Forces in the coming years.

“The leadership of the country has decided to increase the number of contract servicemen from the 184 thousands that we now have to 425 thousands,” the general said.

If you add 220 thousand officers to this professional army, you will get 645 thousand military personnel, or 70 percent of the personnel. According to Makarov, such a significant professionalization of the army and fleetOn the one hand, it will greatly facilitate the training of soldiers. On the other hand, it will increase the combat readiness of the troops.

other news associated with the transfer of non-military functions to civil organizations. Partial "switching" of garrisons to outsourcing has already happened. The chief of the General Staff said that the auction would end in August, and the army would massively switch over to such support for servicemen. The maintenance of small towns, the cleaning of the territory, the organization of food in military units, the repair of equipment and weapons will be fully taken over by civilian companies and companies. “This is done so that the soldier is engaged only in combat training,” explained Makarov.

He spoke about the transition of the Armed Forces to the brigade structure. The general believes that there was no mistake. The brigade’s combat capabilities are in no way inferior to the former divisions. Over the next three to five years, the new formations will further strengthen the artillery, thereby significantly expanding the range of brigade tasks. The Chief of the General Staff is confident that such a structure of the troops allows them to be quickly transferred to any place and, depending on the tasks assigned, complete the formations with the necessary number of battalions. They, among other things, can still act autonomously.

    About military reform (perestroika, modernization - favorite words of the leadership) here: http://news.bcm.ru/russia/2011/2/04/22090/1
    Conclusions:
    1. The sun is in decline
    2. The basis of the aircraft are armored forces, which in accordance with the new concept are reduced by 10 times. Nothing is offered for replacement
    3. At present, defense capability is provided by strategic nuclear forces, which are rapidly aging and by 2015 the Russian Federation will remain unarmed if replacement is not provided.
    4. The current rate of rearmament (Poplar production by the piece) will ensure superiority of the enemy in 5 years - more than 10-50 times.
    5. The leadership of the Defense Ministry is represented by non-professionals, therefore it is not capable of creating a system that will ensure the solution of the vital tasks of rearmament.

    HA - HA - HA !!!!!!!!!! And where will we get staff officers? Who will prepare them, and most importantly where? To the ears in Mr., but still we all say that in chocolate. Makarov himself is not interested in funny, and indeed does he believe in what he says?

    The division is an average of 10-15 thousand people.
    The team of the New Look about 5 thousand people. (With GP)
    Even if you give everyone two AKs to shoot with two hands! The Pentagon has already torn its tumors from the statements of our NGS.

    By the way, why in November-December 2010, why did they intensify and exclusively “voluntarily” disperse the contractors? The other day, the command offered me to go home and write letters to the dismissed contractors, to persuade them back! Do you think that they answer me with such an offer?

    Stas:

    The divisions were mostly cropped, so that the rights of the NHS are the full division and the brigade are equivalent.

    And taking into account the fact that the combat power of the helicopter is 3-5 tanks, when commissioning 300 helicopters per year plus repair and modernization of the old ones, then by 2020 the new army will surpass the Soviet one.

      How simple it is. It’s a pity you weren’t to explain everything to the scoops.

    And what's the point of mobilizing in case of war ?! After all, the United States has already adopted the Doctrine of the first disarming strike using about 8 thousand sea and air-based cruise missiles to strike at administrative and military centers, including mine launchers with an accuracy of deviation of 1,5-2 meters and with a launch intensity of a thousand rockets per day.
    For this purpose, the corresponding ammunition has been formed. By 2015, there will be 30 days of war, by 2020 - 60, by 2025 - 90 days. But today our VKS do not have a single device in space that could solve the tasks of detecting, targeting or destroying these carriers of conventional and nuclear weapons.
    After such a strike, the contract soldiers will have to scatter along the taiga armed with trunks and partisan against the Chinese, who unexpectedly wished to develop "their" northern territories.
    Or he might think and take something to prevent this from happening?! .....

    Believing Makarov is like a prostitute's assurances of love.
    There will NOT BE ANYTHING except chatter.
    Many contractors do not return. And how to connect your life and destiny with such ...........
    Most bastard from firms that will serve the soldiers in the garrisons somewhere in the Chita region. Where is the nearest village hundreds of kilometers away.
    Apparently the NHS mixed up with the Arbat military district. Imagine such a fool at the helm of the army.
    Poor Russia

    The question now stands in full swing and nothing else .... Will our army in the near future be able to at least withstand, even theoretically, the treacherous attack of the multimillion-dollar friendly Chinese army, not taking into account the militias in China and the immigrants living in Russia? Can not. The return of the Northern territories of our country is a military-political doctrine not only of China, but also of Japan. And there others will want .... Why trifle ... But the Russian soul is mysterious. As soon as the cock pecks in the ass, we immediately find ourselves there. Everything for us for some reason is completely unexpected, insidious and mean. Stop snot about the fate of small, but proud and independent, southern peoples ..... We can lose Siberia and the Far East. And this is a geopolitical disaster. And this prospect is just around the corner ...... Time flies fast ...

    Among the youth who never served in the army, there are many who have never fired a machine gun or a pistol, and ... even a gun! And what mobilization readiness after this can we talk about if the bulk of the country's male population does not know what weapons are? If it weren’t for a nuclear umbrella, the Chinese already threw us hats today. Only a blind man does not see the collapse in the army to which her Serdyukov team led.

    And not only she - 20 years of democratization brought us to the edge. I once mentioned that we are on our knees - I had all this in mind
    I agree that only a nuclear umbrella is protecting us from enemies
