Military Review

Rating: Russian army in second place after the US

79
The US armed forces are by far the most powerful in the world, followed by the armed forces of Russia and China. Such a conclusion was made by the Swiss bank Credit Suisse in a study entitled “The end of globalization or a more multi-polar world”. Rating data leads the agency Ридус.




In the ranking table, Russia ranks 2-place, significantly behind the United States. Behind it, with a minimum lag in the final scores, China is located. The fourth line is occupied by Japan. India researchers gave 5-th place.

The analysis conducted by the bank’s specialists “testifies to the military superiority of the United States in the ability to wage conventional war in comparison with its closest rivals,” the document says.

In addition, "in the technical arsenal, including including 13900 aircraft and 920 helicopters, 20 aircraft carriers and 72 submarines, the Pentagon is significantly superior to its closest pursuers," the authors of the study write.



The document also draws attention to the "giant military budget of the United States, which significantly exceeds the budgets of the ministries of defense of all the other countries of the top ten combined." Last year's American defense spending was $ 610 billion.

The authors, however, recognize that their research does not provide a complete and objective picture, since the index they use, for example, does not take into account the nuclear arsenals of states.

By the way, the “strongest” army in Europe - the Ukrainian - did not enter the top 20 rating at all.

            To disable an American commando, it is enough to pull a roll of toilet paper from his backpack
            Usually, in order to incapacitate an American soldier, he had to overcome his fire support and grab the adversary ’for buckle’, that is, to impose an open direct battle on him. to the last fighter. And they rotted in this fucking jungle 2 times faster than the Vietnam. But nonetheless, the resistance did not weaken when the evacuation started --- fun began, and before that the war was on an equal footing. The USA has extensive experience in war in the tropics and on the islands. You have to be very careful ..

        And yet, the American command and control system is an order of magnitude more advanced than ours. Plus electronics. Think about it: even in Afghanistan, in this gulf of Asia, every soldier has a tablet. Extremely efficient reconnaissance with countless and highly technologically advanced drones and satellites. Destruction of the enemy outside the affected area, which can radically reduce losses with the same efficiency. In a good way we should learn from them. And then the Catherine’s approach “Women still give birth” somehow does not inspire. It even got to the point that Osowiec’s defense was given out as a feat, although in the mind it’s just a futile sacrifice. It was necessary to hold on for four days and screw from there at full speed. Because the value of human life is high sacred and nothing can be higher than it. Only personal freedom and private life are on a par with it.

      And counting billions is a noble cause. Better to calculate the coefficient of efficiency.
      They have all the bases in these six hundred + lards and the Navy-breakthrough is included. Again, the F-35 is a dubious superiority with a bunch of reservations: if that, if this.
      They themselves calculated that with this money the Chinese spank a dozen of their 4 ++ fighters, which, although with heavy losses, will still reach the 35th.

        Mig-31 can safely be multiplied by 4-8 f-35, since, he will destroy them all. If you are not able to understand that in addition to quantity, quality and skill are also needed, then there is no need to argue. We have the strongest missile defense / air defense, the largest number of tactical weapons, the best electronic warfare weapons (they don’t shine there at all), we have 20+ thousand tanks (of which 3-4 thousand are T-90 and T-80), we have more MLRS systems, self-propelled guns and towed artillery, the United States has an advantage in only two types of aircraft, the Navy (surface fleet, parity submarines) and unmanned aircraft (this, by the way, is not long, we have tested two shock UAVs, medium and heavy) and parity in nuclear weapons.
        We are at least not weaker than the United States (and possibly the whole of NATO) and should be in the first place together, and then of course China.

      To understand such things, you need to be at least a little interested in the issue, however, ignorance does not interfere with writing jingoistic comments negative
      Where did you get the 20000 T-90? wassat The main manufacturer of tanks of the Abrams family for a long time is a factory in the city of Lima, pc. Ohio (satellite image). A significant number of "Abrams" except those that are operated are stored at various storage bases. The largest is the ground forces storage base in Anniston.

The coalition forces led by the United States on Wednesday dealt only one blow to the positions of the militants of the Islamic State in Syria - the attack was carried out using an unmanned aerial vehicle. According to the Central Command of the Coalition Forces (CENTCOM), a blow was dealt in the vicinity of the settlement of Mara. As a result, two excavators were destroyed.

      The video shows our plans until 2014. But taking into account import substitution and low oil prices, some positions (mainly in the fleet) will have to be adjusted - until 2020, much will not be ready. But most think it will be done. In any case, the fact that by 2020 the army and navy of the Russian Federation will be significantly stronger than now is not in doubt.

        Of course, I agree with you, but their military operations cannot be compared with ours ... they mainly work at a distance in direct combat clashes ...

    Their ratings ... Yes, even the twentieth! The main thing is that it doesn’t “rust” when you need to give someone according to this very rating.

    Well, isn’t it idiocy when the moneylenders appear in the role of "major military experts" ...?!
    To attach some significance to this nonsense, to put it mildly, of non-professionals - you yourself become an idiot.

    Our and American generals decided to find out whose special forces are better. The Americans put up their "fur seals", and ours looked for their special forces - they did not find anyone: some in Chechnya, others in Yugoslavia, who is where. Then they found strong convicts in the camps, put up a team of them. Two teams came together on a desert island, neutral soil. The generals are located on the shore, and there is a fight in the bushes. After half an hour, the whole beaten, tattered "cat" falls out of the bushes. American general to him: -Well, what, we won? Paratrooper: - No, so far only answered for the goats. anekdotov.net

    Ukrokhokhly on another site imagines themselves in the 9-th place in the world (or rather on the 8-m, Russia they generally have on the 10-th page of the rating), because dumbheads think that the abbreviation UK is Ukraine. lol

    The analysis conducted by the bank’s specialists “testifies to the military superiority of the United States in the ability to wage conventional war in comparison with its closest rivals,” the document says.

    In addition, "in the technical arsenal, including including 13900 aircraft and 920 helicopters, 20 aircraft carriers and 72 submarines, the Pentagon is significantly superior to its closest pursuers," the authors of the study write.
    Hmmm, the Swiss bank and do such analytics belay
    Oh yes. In fact, only them
    The document also draws attention to “gigantic military budget of the United Stateswhich significantly exceeds the budgets of the ministries of defense of all the other top ten countries combined. ” Last year's Americans spent on defense $ 610 billion

    Well, in general, as a statistical rating, then everything is correct. The Americans, no matter how more units of aviation, navy, active personnel, and the budget are huge. It's just not clear how the Japanese were pushed to 4th place, they still stomp and stomp to India, and the 5th place is already reserved by Ukraine - they used to say according to TSN ..
