Breedlove: compared to 2008, the Russian army has grown "to 2 meters"

126
The Russian army is gaining professionalism, learning and adapting to modern conditions, passes RIA News statement by the commander of NATO forces in Europe, Philip Bridlav.




“If the Georgian army managed to put the Russian troops in a difficult position in 2008, the events of 2014 in the Crimea showed that the Russian Armed Forces underwent significant changes,” said Bridlav in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.

“I think that the word" surprise "would be too strong, but it is obvious that Russia has radically improved its army," he noted.

“We shouldn’t depict her as three meters tall, if we overestimate, we’ll lose confidence in ourselves. But there are exactly two meters in it, ”
continued the general.

According to him, "the Russians do not accept the rewritten (after the Cold War) rules and want to be talked to as equals."

Earlier, Breedlove stated that the United States "is not using enough technical intelligence tools aimed at preventing the threats posed by Russia," and that Washington needs to "focus on Moscow’s growing military power."

            According to unofficial information, the Georgian Su-25s were able to shoot down four Russian aircraft on the first day of the war, the General Staff confirmed the loss of these four aircraft.

          There were problems and there is no need to deny them ... This is the lack of communication and the deplorable state of technology and a bunch of downed our planes and the lack of drones and a bunch of other things ... We can say that it was lucky that the Americans threw the Georgians into battle, and not the same nationalists from Ukraine ... The Georgians fighting spirit before the first battle, they are only against civilian masters to fight, venal nits ...
          There were 159 radio stations in our regiment, even if they were old, but the batteries should be supplied to them, and there wasn’t a damn thing, the old batteries were charged for a maximum of 30-40 minutes ... Therefore, all the communication was on a cell phone, and Georgians had American equipment that detected all these phones, listened to conversations and determined coordinates by them, and then beat them with artillery at these coordinates ... I generally keep quiet about spare parts for any equipment from the Urals to self-propelled guns, there was nothing, I bought somewhere but you won’t buy everything for yours, especially you won’t buy when the fighting has already begun ...
          The problems were higher than the roof, I will keep silent about many, so as not to undermine the authority of our army, at least the war in Georgia opened their eyes to many, otherwise everyone believed that we were probably not in danger, we are "partners" ...

              R-159 - radio station of the early 80s. For its time - quite on the level. The sarcasm about 159 was that it was 2008. At the expense of technology, too, everything was not ice. Despite intelligence information about the impending Georgian adventure, no one planned a military operation. Considering the Olympics, where at that moment the Supreme Commander and his liberal shadow and the Minister of Defense (stools) were located, it is generally a miracle that Russia did not react after Tskhinval was razed to the ground. They did not bring in troops prepared for the operation (peace enforcement), but more or less combat-ready units. At the beginning of the campaign, the aviation operated without proper electronic warfare cover and was somewhat "haphazardly". This is not a stone in the pilots - they were at their best, it is a stone in those who planned, or rather did not plan.
              As a result of the "swooning reaction" in terms of quality, our equipment was seriously inferior to the Georgian one, even at the level of tanks (the T-72SIM-1 of the Israeli modernization is technically better than our T-72B). Communication was not up to par (cell phones Karl!), Artillery was technically inferior, but training and morale were on our side. According to the participants (consolidated opinion), at the company level, our troops acted at 5+, at the regiment level at 4, everything that is higher than a C (and sometimes two). Really lucky with the enemy. It was lucky that the events of 2008 drew attention to themselves and now the army is on a completely different level.

        in 2008, the weakest link was most likely communication. and even this did not prevent the "valiant" Georgians from running at a gallop as a zebra. But why did the NATO commander not raise it to 3 meters, because Russian troops are so skillfully fighting in Donbas that they still cannot show evidence of their presence, except for passport covers in the hands of Poroshenko ?!

        There were losses in our aviation, including from our own. And the Georgians had a new generation of communications. And we also had a lame control. If instead of the Georgians we had to fight the Turks then the losses would be significant from poor coordination, technical lag in some issues and general training and coherence of the troops. We made mistakes and have been working since then to resolve them. Therefore, I agree with the author here. That war changed our policy, we had to confront NATO expansion in the zone of our interests openly and gave impetus to comprehensive modernization army.

    There were problems with aviation and on media fronts and so on - 8,8,8 - caused the people the first pride in their army from the beginning of the reforms. Or does he call the execution of peacekeepers evasively?

    Two meters, three meters ... Do Americans want something to measure with us? So even sign language gives them out - when American wants to say something masculine, he shows the middle finger. And when Russian wants to say the same thing - he immediately shows his hand to the elbow ... Will we continue to be measured?

      They always praise with one purpose - to knock out allocations for military expenses, and scold as a report for the money spent (like, well done, because we bought a super-bun for an evergreen yard). Presently, a performance is underway to increase the budget of NATO at the expense of all members, not just the United States. In addition, bets have been placed on the involvement of Sweden in the alliance, and if you're lucky (NATO) then Finland. To convince the Swedes and the Finns, there are many running horror stories about submarines (crawling onto the Swedish coast to warm up) and imitations of a nuclear attack.
      To see the real picture, just look at the map of NATO bases and see the quantitative composition of NATO and Russia. Taking into account the middle-sex "Euro-fighters" and just homosexuals, it is impossible to predict (without humor) the combat stability of the European armies, but in the number of conventional weapons NATO surpasses Russia by a head.

      If arms are extended, they will reach the knees. Our weapons are five times superior to the American. Therefore, their growth is 40 cm. They produce only what they can steal, and we create ourselves. Our torpedo rocket flies under water five times faster than theirs.

    Breedlove does his job, stories of horror stories about the Russian army knock out funding, but at the same time he tries not to exaggerate, so as not to develop an inferiority complex for his warriors. His work is dog, so he barks.
    by the way, on account of the problems in the Georgian company, I would not make mockery of this statement. losses were both human and in technology, especially aviation, there is a special "thank you" to the Ukrainians. although in Novorossiya they got even with them. after the South Ossetian campaign, work was done on the mistakes, which brought positive changes. I hope they will not stop there, Brilava and the company will not have a quiet life :)

    Of course, with the exception of the lack of a sufficient number of closed channels and generally modern means of communication, real-time intelligence, and well-established interaction between the military branches, then of course, there was nothing complicated. Only then did all this again have to be compensated by the forces of Russian officers and soldiers, their personal training, courage and stamina, that was exactly what we had, this was a campaign in our blood.
    PS: Let Breedlove read books, at least in military psychology, it will be known that fighting efficiency is not determined by growth. In terms of technology, we are already catching up with the adversary, and in the FORCE OF SPIRIT, CONSCIOUSNESS OF THEIR TRUTH and IMPROVISION to them as to us as Beijing cancer .. oh, although not, to Beijing - this is not the case, it comes out a bit ....)))))

How much strength of spirit an officer must have and how much fierce hatred of the enemy, in order to consciously incur a powerful airstrike in order to take so many enemies with you!

Nobody has ever seen, read or signed these rules like "you have lost and now you must sit still", but we, according to American standards, are obliged to abide by them. And at the same time, the mass of the people heard from the top officials the commitments expressed aloud not to move the NATO borders to the borders of Russia.

(article in RIA FAN) and another quote there: "Mr. Curtis, in particular, shared his thoughts with journalists: Ukraine needs to protect its territorial integrity, its sovereignty (again this harmful Russia is threatening!), And for this you need to understand what needs for weapons Kiev is experiencing, what capabilities it has, and what it can do. complement his military strength.
