Gerasimov: the shortcomings of the Russian technology, identified during the operation in Syria, must be eliminated before the end of the year

The chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, Valery Gerasimov, yesterday ordered that the shortcomings of the Russian armaments identified during the counter-terrorist operation in Syria be rectified, reports RIA News.

Gerasimov: the shortcomings of the Russian technology, identified during the operation in Syria, must be eliminated before the end of the year

What specific shortcomings were identified, not officially reported. The army general only noted that they relate to "some modern models of military equipment and weapons."

“By the end of the year, it is necessary to take measures to remedy the situation”,
indicated Gerasimov at a meeting within the framework of the Unified Day of Acceptance of Military Products.

Recall, in May, presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said that "the main problem identified in the Russian Armed Forces during the operation in Syria was the work of the technology, this experience is being analyzed to further improve it."

        This is the confirmation that our Israeli colleagues wrote to us - not all of our missiles hit the target and not all just reached the target.

      Well, they work out the soldering. And I suspect design flaws, and this has nothing to do with military representatives.

      Yes, it is not necessary to rage, but to carry out their work as if to go to battle on the adopted technique itself!

    Perhaps they will go through helicopters. Then armored vehicles. In short, what to guess. Gradually, they can tell something. The experience of fighting is an invaluable experience. Paid for the most expensive - blood.

      Of course, there is nothing to guess! Let's start with the fact that Gerasimov was the chairman of the Civil Code of Acceptance of the ESU TZ "Constellation" combat information system. This system is used to interact with intelligence assets, including UAVs and weapons. The information system should issue target coordinates and monitor the situation in real time. This system, developed under the presidential program since 2000, is something without which modern war cannot be waged. According to the plan, by 2020, the army should be equipped with such systems. Such a system is very much needed in Syria, but it does not and will not be even in our army. The system does not work, the program has failed. Ask the godfather of the system, who tested it several years ago. The system is overloaded with material support tasks, created on an outdated element base and is inoperative. One of the reasons for the collapse of the program is the lack of a balanced concept of such a system. That is, the military themselves do not know what they want. Stupid copying of enemy systems, games of gigantomania and shortsightedness, to put it mildly, of our command. Simply put, our generals have no idea about the methods of waging modern war ... This is what Syria has shown. And no matter how much we improve individual models of military equipment, without their integration into a single information combat system, nothing will change. This most pressing topic is hushed up, not noticed, and the military pretend that everything is fine. In my concept, we are at the "broken trough", this is a catastrophe for which we pay and will pay with the lives of our soldiers.

            I, for example, am a specialist in my field, and there is no one even around here. And when they appear (they do, yes), we see each other half a mile away. And we know for sure that we will not recommend to someone "to read in Google and talk to us". For it takes years to learn.

        I want to note that your humble servant, of course, did not serve in the General Staff, but for a long time he was in command positions in the regimental level of the Air Force, he was familiar with the division level and was recommended for serving in the army level, even before the collapse of the Union.

        In Syria, there are more shortcomings in the organization of hostilities, or rather in the inability to organize them at a modern level. Our UAVs still do not give out the coordinates of targets in real time. Reconnaissance assets, including UAVs, do not provide for the creation of a permanent information field, at least in the main zones, and it is not at all the characteristics of reconnaissance assets. Each one individually has very good characteristics, but they do not give information to the general information system. And here the question is not even in the coordination of characteristics for joint work, although here there is also a field for work ... The point is in the absence of such systems as such. One of the variants of such an ESU TZ system is not operational, although it has been developed for 16 years. Once such a system is known, there is no real-time target designation for aircraft, for helicopters, ACS, MLRS. And helicopters and airplanes have a channel for working with ESU TZ, and in as a source of information and as a recipient? And on the other hand, why, if the system does not work? .. And if it appears, but there is no consistency, there are no standards. All this is called an open architecture, but there is none. And the lag is visible for decades. No and will not be. And we will not eliminate the shortcomings! ... Instead, we use spotters of fire on the battlefield with a walkie-talkie, or the coordinates of stationary objects obtained earlier, or we patrol blindly and dug ,,,, Now the depth of the crisis is clear that this wise an intelligent person can eliminate? ... Where is contactless war, where is information technology? ... Where is the T50 integrated? ... There. And without this it can be called the 5th generation aircraft? ... Do they have some drawbacks? ... It's time to "sound the alarm" ...
