Armed forces of Russia. 2015 Results of the Year

84
Only a few days left until the end of 2015. It is time to sum up the results of the outgoing year and complete the planning of the next one. The Russian Ministry of Defense also sums up the outgoing year and draws conclusions about the success of the work. The outgoing 2015 year was not an easy one for a variety of reasons. Many negative factors made it difficult to perform certain tasks. Nevertheless, the military, defense industry and related structures in general coped with the implementation of the plans.


It should be noted, the ministry announced the results of the year a few weeks ago. December 11 held an extended meeting of the Defense Ministry Board, during which the report on the results of the activities of the department was announced. In addition, during the year the ministry repeatedly announced news on the implementation of certain transformations, the supply of various equipment, etc. Consider the results of the activities of the military in the outgoing year 2015.

Structural transformations

In order to increase combat effectiveness and to respond to new threats, several changes were carried out in various structures of the armed forces. In addition, a significant number of new compounds appeared. Perhaps the largest and most noticeable change in the structure of the army this year was the formation of the Aerospace Forces. 1 August 2015, the air force and the aerospace defense forces were merged into one kind of armed forces. Just a couple of months after its appearance, the VKS participated for the first time in a real combat operation.



Other branches of the armed forces and the armed forces did not undergo such changes. Nevertheless, a significant number of new compounds appeared in their composition. So, this year the formation of the 1st Guards tank army, part of the Western Military District. The composition of this association includes a large number of units armed with one or another military equipment. The emergence, or rather the reconstruction (previously there was an association with the same name as part of the Soviet army) of the tank army was a response to the crisis in Eastern Europe and the unfriendly actions of NATO near Russian borders.

The modernization of engineering troops belonging to the ground forces. Not so long ago, the 1-I Guards Engineering Sapper and 28-I pontoon-bridge brigades were formed in Murom. Engineering troops are an important element of the armed forces, and therefore the program for their modernization is currently being implemented. It is reported that by the end of this decade, each combined army will receive its own engineering and pontoon bridge brigades.

Rocket troops and artillery were also added with several units. In Mozdok, a new rocket brigade was formed that was included in the 58 Army. 36-I army replenished with a new artillery brigade, based in Buryatia. As follows from the available data, the development and re-equipment of this type of troops will continue next year.

An important topic in the context of the transformation of the Russian armed forces is the construction of bases in the Arctic. The operational and strategic command "North", which began work last year, continues to deploy its troops beyond the Arctic Circle. For example, in January of this year, servicemen of the 80 Motorized Rifle Brigade arrived in the village of Alakurtti (Murmansk Region), which now serve there. Deploying units did not take much time: in the summer, the brigade took part in their first exercises in a new location.

According to the latest data, the Ministry of Defense and the structures involved in the current programs are completing the construction of six military bases in the Arctic. New bases are deployed on the Boiler Islands, Alexandra and Sredny Land, on Novaya Zemlya archipelago and on Cape Schmidt. The personnel of the new bases have already started the service. In addition, the necessary weapons systems and equipment are deployed. One of the main tasks of the northern bases is to protect the country from an air attack, for which several types of anti-aircraft systems are deployed on them.

As part of the transformation of the army structures, it was not only the creation of new bases and formations that were addressed. In 2015, the Ministry of Defense closed one of the topics that remained on the agenda for the past few years. The transfer of the liberated military camps to regional and municipal authorities has been completed. According to official data, 1395 military camps have been transferred to civilian authorities, on the territory of which about 56 thousands of various infrastructure facilities are located. This allowed to free up about 40 thousand people of civilian personnel, as well as save about 2 billion rubles, which should be spent on the maintenance of objects. In addition, more than 7 thousand servicemen who previously had to guard the transferred objects returned to service.

Army modernization: numerical indicators

According to the Ministry of Defense, for the year 2015 managed to perform many different tasks related to the modernization of the armed forces. During the year, the number of troops increased again. Now staffing is increased to 92% of the required number. The recruitment of contractors, whose share this year has increased by 10%, continues. Their total number is 352 thousand people. It is noteworthy that in the spring of 2015, the number of contractors for the first time in stories exceeded the number of conscripts.


Infographics for total 2015 indicators of the year


Particular attention is paid to the modernization of the armed forces so-called. nuclear triad. It is reported that this year continued the updating of strategic missile forces. At the moment, more than 95% of launchers with missiles of various types are in a state of constant readiness to perform combat missions. The share of modern weapons in the Strategic Missile Forces for 2015 year brought to 51%. One of the main factors contributing to the growth of this indicator was the putting on duty of six regiments armed with “Yars” complexes in fixed and mobile versions.

The marine component of the strategic nuclear forces now contains 56% of new equipment and weapons. The increase in this indicator was affected by the introduction of the naval fleet two missile submarine cruisers with ballistic missiles of project 955 Borey: Alexander Nevsky and Vladimir Monomakh.

Far aviation The aerospace forces have not yet received new equipment, but the existing aircraft undergo a planned modernization aimed at improving their performance. This year, two Tu-160 missile carriers, three Tu-95MS aircraft and five Tu-22M3 bombers underwent repair and updating.

In the interests of strategic nuclear forces this year, 35 built several new types of ballistic missiles. Due to these shipments, the share of new ICBMs has been increased to 55% of the total. According to current plans, over the next few years, the share of new weapons should be increased by tens of percent.

The aerospace forces, as well as the types of armed forces that became part of them, received a large number of various weapons and equipment over the past year. In accordance with the State Defense Order this year, 243 aircraft of several classes and types were supplied, 90 anti-aircraft complexes of various classes, 208 radar systems and a large number of various weapons. At the moment, the share of modern systems in video conferencing is 52%.

The ground forces armored formations received 1172 units of equipment of various classes. Rocket troops and artillery mastered 148 of new systems, as well as two brigade sets of Iskander-M operational tactical complexes. Ground forces generally received several types of 2292 vehicles. Unfortunately, the supply of new technology does not yet allow it to significantly increase its share in the troops. In the case of ground troops, this parameter is only 35% - significantly less than that of other types of armed forces.

The Navy received two multipurpose submarines and 2015 surface ships of several types in 8. The share of new ships and submarines, thus, brought to 39%. The construction of new ships and submarines continues. So, literally the other day, two new rocket ships of the 22800 project were laid in St. Petersburg, and the construction of the next submarine of the Borey project was launched a little earlier. Thus, in the foreseeable future, the fleet will receive a significant amount of new equipment of various classes, which will reduce the average age of combatant ships and submarines.


Upgrading Strategic Nuclear Forces


In the outgoing year, the airborne troops received a number of new types of weapons and equipment. As a result of these deliveries, the troops were fully equipped with all the necessary systems, and the share of new weapons was brought to 41%.

It is noted that the armed forces continue to receive and develop unmanned aerial vehicles of various classes and types. The exercises, as well as real combat operations, showed the potential of such equipment and confirmed the correctness of the chosen course. The number of unmanned vehicles delivered has had a beneficial effect on the capabilities of the troops. Back in 2011, the army had only 180 of such complexes, and by the end of 2015, their number exceeded 1700. All this equipment is actively used in the interests of various types of armed forces.

The Ministry of Defense is compelled to admit that not all plans for the current year were implemented on time. It is reported that this year the troops did not receive the 2 aircraft, the 3 spacecraft, the 2 surface ships and about fifty units of other equipment. 199 units of equipment, despite plans, were not repaired this year. In addition, 679 units did not have time to pass the designated service. Deliveries of under-received equipment and performance of unfinished work are transferred to the next year.

Nevertheless, despite all the difficulties, the main tasks of the current state armaments program, calculated up to 2020, are being fulfilled, and with a noticeable advance of the schedule. At the moment, the share of modern weapons and equipment in the army has been increased to 47%, the proportion of serviceable samples is 89%. In accordance with the State Program in 2015, it was required to bring the share of new samples to 30%. As you can see, the defense industry and the Ministry of Defense not only completed the task, but also significantly exceeded the required figures.

Construction of facilities

The armed forces need not only new equipment, but also new facilities for various purposes. In 2015, military construction was continued, with some innovations in this area made it possible to increase the pace of construction and, to a certain extent, reduce costs. Thus, the standard standards adopted last year made it possible to reduce the cost of 1 sq. M from 37 to 32 thousand rubles, thereby saving about 5 billions over the year.

Over the year, in the interests of the army, more than 600 facilities were built with a total area of ​​about 2,5 million square meters. Due to modern technologies, construction of housing and shelters for equipment has been halved. In addition, operating costs decreased by one third. It is noted that due to the fast and high-quality construction, the construction of infrastructure for submarines at the bases of Gadzhiyevo and Novorossiysk was completed. In addition, all new missile systems supplied to the troops received full-fledged shelters. All construction programs for such important facilities were completed in 2015.


Upgrading other types of armed forces


The Ministry of Defense, with the participation of oil companies, is implementing plans for the construction of 22 fueling complexes. Eight such complexes have already been built this year. Three more will be put into operation in 2016.

In the past and current year, 390 built new storage facilities for weapons and ammunition that meet modern requirements. Next year, 190 more such facilities should appear, which will provide the armed forces with all the necessary infrastructure for the storage of ammunition. In addition, in the foreseeable future, the construction of 24 production and logistics complexes in Naro-Fominsk will be completed, which will replace the order of 30 facilities near Moscow.

Personnel training

In 2015, the military department completed the formation of a new image of the system of higher military educational institutions, which will train young specialists. Now the training and training of future officers will deal with 26 universities and 8 of their branches. In addition, all schools will be connected with the help of so-called. e-high school - a means of exchanging information between them.

In the outgoing year, uniform standards for electronic textbooks were approved, and a trial project of an electronic library was implemented. Such modern means of providing training will be applied from the next academic year, which starts in September 2016.

General measures aimed at increasing the prestige of military service have led to a significant increase in those who wish to enter higher education institutions of the Ministry of Defense. This year's competition in various educational institutions reached the 9 people in place. In addition, some other measures are being taken, with the help of which it is supposed to eliminate the existing shortage of military specialists by 2017.

In 2015, the work of the so-called continued. scientific companies in which graduates of higher educational institutions serve. To date, 12 of such units has been formed, and graduates of 42 universities serve in them. According to the experience of creating scientific companies, a program has been launched to create scientific and production companies.

Combat training

For several years in a row, the Ministry of Defense has been conducting not only exercises at various levels, but also sudden checks of combat readiness, during which fairly large units are being transferred to remote training grounds with the subsequent fulfillment of combat training tasks. In the context of training events and audits, the latest report of the Ministry of Defense focuses on the Center-2015 exercise, which took place in August and September.

During this event, it was possible to successfully solve the problem of creating a large strike aviation group. As part of these exercises, a massive air strike was carried out, in which one hundred and fifty aircraft participated. In addition, the landing of the air assault as part of 800 fighters was carried out. The exercises "Center-2015" showed all the capabilities of the armed forces during combat work in the Central Asian region.

Regular training activities at different levels have increased the number of key indicators related to the training of personnel. Thus, the flight of military pilots increased by 10%, and the flooding of naval crews - by 7%. Drivers of the ground forces overcame longer routes with their 22% technique, and the total number of parachute jumps in the Airborne Forces grew by a thousand 1, more than half of these jumps were performed under difficult conditions.

Renovation of the material part, primarily through the supply of modern weapons and equipment with high performance, as well as an increase in the number of supplied ammunition allows the troops to keep within the standards for the costs of various material resources. One of the main factors at the same time is an order increased by five times for various types of ammunition, as well as the wide distribution of simulators used for preliminary training of specialists.

Syrian operation

The most important event of 2015 of the year, which can maintain a similar status in 2016, is the operation in Syria. At the request of official Damascus, a group of Aerospace Forces of Russia was deployed at Khmeimim airbase, which included various types of aircraft and helicopters, air defense missile systems, etc. As the existing plans were implemented, not only the VKS, but also the navy were connected to the operation: a series of strikes at enemy targets were inflicted by ships and submarines. In addition, the Navy ships are involved in the implementation of air defense of the deployment area of ​​the VKS group.


General information about operations in Syria


Since the end of September, the main combat work is assigned to aircraft and helicopters VKS. Over the past months, they carried out more than 4 thous. Of sorties and destroyed at least 8 thou. Of thousands of various objects of terrorists: firing points, fortifications, workshops, headquarters, etc. In addition, strikes are struck at the oil infrastructure facilities used by terrorists for illegal enrichment.

Already in the first days of October, the first ever massive launch of Caliber cruise missiles at real targets was carried out. This strike was carried out by several rocket ships of the Caspian Flotilla. In December, the fleet again took part in strikes against targets of terrorists. This time, the Caliber missiles were launched by the newest diesel-electric submarine Rostov-on-Don from the Mediterranean.

Long-range aviation in the person of Tu-160, Tu-95MS and Tu-22М3 bombers was repeatedly involved in the destruction of targets in Syria. Such strikes were carried out with the use of free-fall bombs, as well as with the use of the latest air-launched cruise missiles, which made it possible to test new weapon in a real conflict.

The Syrian operation has become a serious test for military transport aviation and maritime transport. To supply the group on the base Chemim requires constant supply of fuel, ammunition, provisions, etc. According to official data, in the first two months of the operation, ships and aircraft delivered 214 thousand tons of various cargoes to Syria.

The most important feature of the operation of the VKS in Syria is the information support of combat work. The Ministry of Defense regularly holds briefings and talks about the results of the sorties in recent days. In addition, a large number of published videos of the results of air strikes made from unmanned aerial vehicles. Photos and videos with the results of combat work attracts much public attention. At Hmeimim airbase there are always a large number of domestic and foreign journalists who have the opportunity to receive information about the operation first-hand and promptly report on the progress of the sorties.

***

The modernization program of the armed forces continues. In the course of its implementation, the Ministry of Defense carries out various transformations, creates new structures and connections, masters the prospective material part and solves other important tasks. According to the latest data of the Ministry of Defense, with all the complexity of the tasks set, the armed forces and related structures are coping with them and continue to carry out their existing plans. The successes in this matter are clearly shown in the published statistics on the number of personnel, new materiel, new infrastructure, etc.

The Ministry of Defense has already determined the main plans for the next year. The construction of new facilities and the purchase of weapons will continue. In addition, it is planned to continue holding various training events, surprise checks of combat readiness, etc. Existing experience has already shown the need for such events, thanks to which they will be carried out in the future.

Currently, the military department faces a number of important tasks related to the development of the armed forces. Over the past few years, the Ministry of Defense has been fulfilling existing plans with some success and has been carrying out all work aimed at increasing the combat capability of the army. 2015 year, as follows from recently published data, was no exception to this rule. Despite all the difficulties, the military continues to work on existing programs and update the armed forces. Thus, 2015 year, with all its complexity, can be considered successful for the army. She enters the new 2016 with new successes and skills gained in the past year.

        the current Armata is NOT a production model. You should not expect much from her. And the control system and weapons will be redone more than once.

        It’s only a pity that the old fears of our warriors worked out and refused from the GTE ....

      In addition to the "Armata", there are many more reasons to be glad for our Armed Forces. Personally, I was impressed this year by the number of submarines launched from the stocks and the same large number of submarines under construction and laid down. I was pleasantly pleased with the operation of our Aerospace Forces in Syria. And about such "trifles" as the revival of the 1st Guards Tank Army, named after the legendary commander Mikhail Efimovich Katukov, not even everyone will remember. I would like to congratulate members of the forum and our army with the coming New Year! May it be even more successful militarily than the previous two!

        ... for the collected armament info for 2015. Bookmark it!

        The information is a little contradictory and not analyzed. Let's start with the strength:
        Nevertheless, a significant number of new compounds appeared in their composition.

        Due to the fact that the regular strength of the aircraft has not changed - the new compounds are essentially renamed / re-formed old ones.
        Now about weapons:
        The share of modern weapons in the Strategic Missile Forces in 2015 increased to 51%

        the share of new ICBMs was brought up to 55% of the total

        In the Strategic Missile Forces, only ICBMs are in service! The question is how many of them are new 51 or 55%?
        And so you can further disassemble paragraphs ...
        The article is superficial, jerky quotes from various sources, often not verified ...

      Hi!! You just lost sight of another surprise. In the Baltic Sea, the combat ship with the STO index is being tested and refined. This is the absolute newest product of our defense complex. In the world, the latest ship is considered to have 40% of the latest systems and equipment, and there are a hundred. Rogozin mentioned this in passing . We will wait until it enters the Fleet. With it are connected the hopes of the revival of the surface fleet with completely different capabilities. Happy New Year to all health and success.

      Long-range aviation of the Aerospace Forces does not receive new equipment yet, however, the existing aircraft are undergoing a planned modernization aimed at improving their characteristics. This year, two Tu-160 missile carriers, three Tu-95MS aircraft and five Tu-22М3 bombers passed repairs and upgrades.

    Perhaps the largest and most noticeable change in the structure of the army this year was the formation of the Aerospace Forces. On August 1, 2015, the air forces and aerospace defense forces were combined into one type of armed forces.


    "Three in one" - this may be suitable only for ersatz coffee from Nestlé request .

      Even in the Soviet Air Force apart There were long-range, military transport and front-line aviation commands, and now

    Repair of long-range aviation needs to be added. In fact, repair of T-72 tanks, of course in a better version, but most likely not even reach T-90 in some respects.
    In addition, multipurpose nuclear submarines are not new, but repaired.

    I’ll walk through the fleet, I can’t confirm about the rest
    The naval component of the strategic nuclear forces now contains 56% new equipment and weapons. The increase in this indicator was affected by the introduction into the Navy of two missile submarine cruisers with ballistic missiles of the 955 Borey project: Alexander Nevsky and Vladimir Monomakh.
    Well, hello, we have only 3 Boreas - is this 56% new technology? That is, only 5-6 SSBNs in service ?! And then, dear author, "Monomakh" went into operation last year, and "Nevsky" in 2013, what does last year have to do with it ?! In 2015, our naval component of the strategic nuclear forces did not receive anything. You did not copy this paragraph over the past year?
    In 2015, the Navy received two multi-purpose submarines and 8 surface ships of several types. The share of new ships and submarines, thus, is brought up to 39%.
    Aha, only from warships only 2 MRK "Buyana". Another explorer "Yantar", rescuer "Belousov", transport "Kovalev", well, dock "Sviyaga" and who is the 8th? scout "Ivanov", so last year he was handed over for the new year.
    39% is afraid, given the boats and tugs, and on warships and pl nothing of the sort. Especially in the Pacific Fleet and Black Sea Fleet. In general, I hope the author is more competent for the rest of the genera, because it only makes me sad that he has happily presented in the fleet.

      By new technology is meant not only built, BUT AND MODERNIZED. So 3 Boreas and 6 Dolphins that have upgraded to zero are even more than 56 percent. request Most likely, in addition to squids, Dmitry Donskoy and decommissioned sharks are considered as strategists. Then it turns out 56 percent approximately, otherwise more - 9 out of 12 is 75 percent. soldier

      I'd rather be a guard patriot than an ury patriot fool

      we got cruise missiles, which were not in the USSR, with a range of up to 10000 km

      Then show with your finger where you found such a rocket. If you are talking about the X-101 / X-102, then it has a range of up to 5500 km. And then it looks very optimistic hi

      I’ll explain on fingers: strategic carcasses are loaded to the eyeballs with nuclear (and maybe even non-nuclear) calibers in the Kamchatka region (from their territory) and release them by state

      Well, yes, for sure. We are the only country on the planet that has cruise missiles wassat

      Yes, pin-owls have cruise missiles, they will answer me, but they do not fly far

      The Americans (although I myself rarely call them so) on a cruise missile ate a dog, or maybe not one winked

      and in the presence of the S-400 this strike option will disappear by itself

      And what about us, does the S-400 directly cover the entire territory of the country? Is it straight all-all? That was the first. Secondly: do you not take into account that, perhaps, there will be more missiles that will be launched at us than anti-aircraft missiles that we can launch at one time on their missiles? In other words, 100 Tomahawks were fired at us, and we only have 80 anti-aircraft missiles request

      .Our "calibers" are a universal remedy for Russophobia, they can be used from different (as the recent events in Syria have shown) delivery vehicles, from the aforementioned "strategists" to naval and submarine forces.

      I'll tell you a terrible secret: the Americans already have their own "Caliber" - "Tomahawk" is called. The Americans, damn it, are so arrogant that they copied it in advance from our analog, 30 years ago. And they have much more carriers. Much more: 62 destroyers, 20 cruisers, a subsidiary of submarines, and there are submarines with 154 missiles each. And this I have not yet taken into account the air carriers of the same missiles. By the way, the Tomahawk is not the most advanced "p ** dos" rocket crying

      Well, in the end, Ivan Ivanovich, how do you imagine the conflict between Russia and the United States without the participation of ballistic missiles? You remind how many of them (for you - at n ** ndosov) submarines with nuclear missiles? Or can you remind you that we do not have missile defense, as such (the Moscow nuclear umbrella does not count)? fool

        As for the calibers, namely X / 101/102, even the Americans have data on a range of 5000 to 10000 km, our designers took into account all the shortcomings of US cruise missiles, and, as always, did better with a reliable economical turbojet.

          Our designers took into account all the shortcomings of US cruise missiles, and as always did better by putting a reliable economical turbojet engine.

          As far as I know, the same engine is installed on the X-101 as on the subsonic Caliber. In your opinion, does the caliber hit 10000km too? laughing laughing laughing

        Brad? You remind me of Marshal Kulik, who used to say before the war "... where can we compete with bast shoes Russia, with mechanized Germany ..." and so do you.
        America still, despite the sanctions, continues to buy rocket engines from Russia in order to somehow launch its rockets into space - well, they don’t have this hour progress in the missile direction - they have lagged behind for 20 years, we are not lagging behind- because they relaxed.
        What is the use of having an armada of caravans — to launch a bunch of cruise missiles, one must approach the borders of Russia — who will allow them? It’s not for Iraq to be released from the Persian Gulf.

    The US military noted a qualitative change in the combat capabilities of the Russian fleet at the end of the year, Bloomberg writes on Thursday, relying on a report from the US Naval Intelligence Agency. It refers to the mass equipping of ships of various classes with new-generation Caliber cruise missiles.
    “Deliveries of such samples as Caliber missile systems and X-101 air-based missiles have increased significantly compared to previous program periods”
    It is noted that the "Caliber" is planned to be installed even on corvettes and small warships, which "will significantly enhance their ability to hold, threaten or destroy combat targets." Having received rockets, corvettes and warships, they will be able to "keep a fixed ground target at a distance under the threat of using conventional weapons against it." The report also indicates that the "Caliber" (in the NATO classification SS-N-27 Sizzler - "Incinerator") is the "most advanced domestic version" of weapons.
    In addition, Russia continues to develop anti-submarine missiles “with improved design features” (supersonic speed and the ability to maneuver), which “adds to the problems of the US naval forces and their allies,” the authors of the report write.http: //vz.ru/society/ 2015/12/31 / 786992.html

      It is clear that such media as Elephant or Echo from the Toilet have completely different news from other parallel universes.
      This is approximately the same as the news about the law, which allows FSB servicemen to shoot in the crowd against terrorists, in Elephants and Ehah it was voiced as - shoot at the crowd. Yes, and emphasized by women and children.

      I QUOTE from Putin's Decree: “A serviceman whose total military service is ten years or more, who needs housing, without his consent can't be fired "from military service without providing him with a dwelling or a subsidy for the acquisition or construction of a dwelling according to the norms established by housing legislation”
