    So how does it affect the purchase and spending ?

    60 Rub to USD isn't half first off (of what it was.  35rub/USD would make 70rub/usd half).  Second, inflation is at 0% so far these last months.

    As well, a huge portion of tech has been import substituted or found a cheaper alternative source (mostly China, South Korea, etc compared to USA, France, Germany).  So the devaluation but finding much cheaper source balanced it out.  Thirdly, since production is done by state run companies, costs of military goods for Russia is significantly less.  It was estimated that Su-3S for example may cost Russia in the $30+M range per aircraft, which is a lot cheaper than estimated export cost.

    As well, costs of the goods are in Roubles, so like NationalRus said, only parts that gets imported.  Domestic ones don't change or barely changes at all.  Major issue is cost of labour, and that still isn't a problem for Russia.

    badly but it is managable so long nothing gets importet from the producing companies, as soon as a factory needs to import somthing the price will skyrocket under such a inflated rubel

    Are you sure it affects it badly?  Because we are not seeing it so far.  Orders are still huge, import substitution is now a thing, and they have increased drastically the modernization of the armed forces.

    ____________________________________________________________

    I suggest some people here start to familiarize themselves with concepts of GDP Nominal, GDP Purchasing Power Parity, and things like exchange rates.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purchasing_power_parity
    Important quote:
    For example, suppose that two countries produce the same physical amounts of goods as each other in each of two different years. Since market exchange rates fluctuate substantially, when the GDP of one country measured in its own currency is converted to the other country's currency using market exchange rates, one country might be inferred to have higher real GDP than the other country in one year but lower in the other; both of these inferences would fail to reflect the reality of their relative levels of production. But if one country's GDP is converted into the other country's currency using PPP exchange rates instead of observed market exchange rates, the false inference will not occur.

    and

    For example, if the value of the Mexican peso falls by half compared to the US dollar, the Mexican Gross Domestic Product measured in dollars will also halve. However, this exchange rate results from international trade and financial markets. It does not necessarily mean that Mexicans are poorer by a half; if incomes and prices measured in pesos stay the same, they will be no worse off assuming that imported goods are not essential to the quality of life of individuals. Measuring income in different countries using PPP exchange rates helps to avoid this problem.

    Effectively, if Russia is successful for even half or a tad more in import substitution, they can drop costs significantly.  Probably to more than what they were when Rouble was 35Rubs/USD.

    i didnt say thing were not getting bought anyway, but that doesnt mean that the bill isnt is higher now, so if a product is 100% made at home it isnt critical but if parts are imported or even materials are imported to make ourselfs parts = much higher bill with a weak rubel

    That is true, but the question is, which parts exactly? Now that the parts can no longer be purchased from the west, they have to be purchased elsewhere. I'll give an example: The MIPS processor for the Radar on Irbis-E was coming from a US based company. But since they can no longer purchase such processor, I imagine they will end up using their own MIPS (Be it Baikal processor), or the Elbrus 2C+ (which was proposed apparently for N036) or some other one from China or Taiwan.

    Many components before, were coming from the west. Now that a lot of those are pretty much none purchasable, I imagine they had to find alternatives. And in many cases, the alternatives from China/Taiwan/S.Korea are much cheaper than coming from the west.

    Then there is the fact that many components are still making its way from Ukraine to Russia. But the Hyrvina is doing pretty bad in itself (and they don't get the benefits behind a devalued currency since Ukraine barely produces much these days), so shouldn't be much more or any more expensive than before.

    BTW, I suggest people to go on over to the Economic thread that I started, and give your opinion as to if we should close all other economic threads to have just 1 thread.

    Thank you.

    Russia to start working on 2016-2025 armament program when economy stabilizes — source

    Neither the Economic Development Ministry nor the Finance Ministry has a clear social and economic forecast at the moment


    MOSCOW, August 31. /TASS/. The Russian government will start working on the state armament program for 2016-2025 only after the economic situation is stable, an informed source with the government told reporters on Monday.

    "Any program must be based on a clear social and economic forecast and neither the Economic Development Ministry nor the Finance Ministry has such a forecast now. Eventually, we decided that as for the current armament program until 2020 we will work under the indicators that were agreed earlier. The work on prospective SAP for 2016-2025 will be launched no earlier than the economic situation stabilizes and the there is a clear forecast of the future socio-economic development," the source said.

    Initially, the government announced that its spending on the state armaments program until 2025 would amount to 55 trillion rubles ($823 bln). Later the amount was reduced to 30 trillion rubles ($449 bln) to maintain the required volumes of equipment.

    The cost of the state armament program until 2020 is about 20 trillion rubles ($299 bln). Among the main priorities of the current government program are strategic nuclear forces, aerospace forces and reconnaissance, communication means.

    Looks like the naysayers, the fear-porn peddlers, the panic-mongers are eating humble pie... Razz The Central Research Institute "Electronics", a institute that's main focus is studying the past, present, and future of the domestic science and technology industry, including Russia's Military Industrial Complex. It's a leading institute in Russia, it produces '6' research papers per scholar, which is better than the '1-2' research papers per scholar which is the average efficiency of other research institutes in the same field, within Russia. They've probably done the most extensive analysis and research about currency devaluation/fluctuation of the Rouble and the MOD's state armaments modernization/procurement, and their findings are quite intriguing. Apparently it's the complete opposite of what some monetarists have claimed.

    According to the The Central Research Institute "Electronics", the devaluation of the Rouble is set to increase the total volume of supplies of modern weapons for export as well as domestic procurement of arms by a minimum of 20%, all the way to a maximum of 60% depending on the level of the exchange rate, the duration of the planning period and the minimum level of supply of products to the domestic market and for export.

    CRI "Electronics" became the leading center for interdisciplinary research DIC economy
    Institute for the year showed the best results among similar organizations



    Employees of Central Research Institute "Electronics" for the year showed the best results among all research institutions of the military-industrial complex.

    According to the results of testing conducted by research institute figures totaled approximately 6 reports at the same scientists working in the Central Research Institute "Electronics". According to this indicator Institute significantly superior to other research organizations DIC, which over the same period presented at international and national conferences on the average on 1-2 subjects to report similar to one scholar.

    Employees of Central Research Institute "Electronics", for example, tested the hypothesis that the shortage of investment and reduce the cost of the national currency is useful to increase export sales of products, which should contribute to a speedy modernization of the defense industry.

    A study conducted by experts of the Institute, has shown that the maximum increase of exports in a few years may be appropriate.    

    According to experts, the implementation of such a strategy can increase the total volume of supplies of modern weapons for the needs of national defense by 20-60% depending on the level of the exchange rate, the duration of the planning period and the minimum level of supply of products to the domestic market and for export.

    As the number of published scientific papers and monographs published by academic economists Institute also became the best in Russia.

    According to preliminary results of the "Best Director of a research organization Defense Industry of Russia" can become CEO of CRI "Electronics" Alena Fomina.

    On the title "best scientist-economist Russia's defense industry," claims Advisor to Director General Research Institute "Electronics", Ph.D. AM Batkovsky.

    MOSCOW, December 4 - RIA Novosti. The state defense order in 2015 will be made ​​by approximately 96%, are large-scale work on import substitution in the field of defense industry, said Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin in an interview with television channel NTV.

    "We plan that this year will leave about 96% of the state defense order execution. Why? Because we have a large number of activities related to import substitution. Go short supply of equipment and components that had previously been ordered from partners abroad," - said vice- Prime Rogozin.
    At the same time this year the rate of implementation of the state defense order better compared to previous years, the volume of state defense order has grown by half, said Rogozin.

    One of the news agencies a day or two ago stated that there is talk ongoing and work for state program from 2016 to 2025.  I would wager though it is smarter to wait till near end of 2020 to determin the next 5 years of spending and what is needed, rather than throwing money around.

    I cannot locate the article at the moment but it was out in the previous couple of weeks in regards to the replacement of foreign parts for the Defense industry. In it was mentioned that at the present there are over a 100 new and rebuilt military equipment unable to be completed due to lack of parts and that over 600 repairs are unable to be completed for the same reason. Could be sometime into 2017 before all these issues are resolved. Comment came from either Rogozin or some MoD spokesperson.

    Very important.  It shows the need for import substitution and doing things domestically.

    I still am gloating over how I mentioned importing and JV for military was dangerous for Russia and how I was lambasted for it.

    JVs and imports make sense when they are available as it is cheaper and quicker than having to make things yourself.

    Obviously when there is a threat that such things might be cut off or stopped by politics then making everything yourself makes sense.

    It does not make sense until there is no other choice.

    For the same reason you personally don't make everything you own yourself do you?

    It doesn't make sense... until you are dropped on an island in the middle of a very large ocean where you have nothing and have to make everything yourself... that which you cannot make you do without.

    gloating over this current situation is a bit like supporting the idea that I should be telling you to throw away everything you currently own and then make it all yourself from scratch... of course you would not do it now... but if you were in a plane crash on a desert island you would have no choice... and the stinging memory that I told you so... if you had listened to me you would have the skills to make a lot of things for yourself... afro

    2015 ended and it's time to sum up the work of the Russian military-industrial complex, and compare them with the results of last year. According to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation in the framework of the state defense order this year is at 7% more military equipment than in the past, and do deliveries are made on 96% (95% in 2014). To obtain a more complete picture you need to pay attention to certain categories of military equipment.

    Aviation equipment - less than last year

    In 2015, Air-Space Forces of the Russian Federation (FSI) received 243 aircraft and helicopters - a little less than in 2014, while the troops were 277 aircraft. Keep in mind that this figure takes into account the technology, the modernization of the past, not only built from scratch. If you take only new products in the past year we received a record number of videoconferencing aircraft - 108 units.
    This year, counting some complexity; less information: for sure you can talk about the supply of 18 multi-role fighters Su-30cm, 4 Su-30M2 (according to the plans 5 may open information is incomplete), 18 Sukhoi Su-34 (2 over the plan), not less than 6 Su-35 (although the plan they were 14, it is possible that a transfer of a part of these official information did not appear), not less than 6 light MiG-29 SMT (P) / UX (R) (possibly Cool, 12 training Yak-130, 1 military transport aircraft Il-76MD-90A, An-148-100E 1 (maybe 2). In total - is 66-78 aircraft. That is, even in the most favorable case, released on 30 cars less (27% less). The reasons for this are different: out of contracts for Su-35s (new contract for 48 aircraft has not been signed) and deck MiG-29K aircraft An-148 and An-140 made without cooperation with Ukraine is problematic for the Yak-130 had some difficulties with the rapid import substitution. Nevertheless, the result is still not bad, considering the economic problems and the question of establishing local production of components.
    As for the helicopters - detailed data in this year's smaller, but, apparently, the number of helicopters produced much has changed. With regard to the modernization of existing equipment, its rates remain high.

    Strategic Nuclear Forces - actively replenished as before
    In 2015, the "nuclear triad" received 35 intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) - are expected to land 24 RS-24 "yars", and the rest - P-30 "Bulava", which are equipped with submarines of Project 955 "Borey". Last year it was built 38 ICBMs, including 16 "Yarsov" and 22 "Bulava". Thus, in the field of problems or significant changes there - no country in the world is not even close to such indicators. At the current rate by 2022 in service of the Russian Federation will be the only modern ICBMs.
    Along with the construction of new ICBMs, strategic forces also got past modernization bombers - Tu-160M ​​2, 3 Tu-95MS and Tu-22M3 5. Navy also received two missile submarines of Project 955 "Borey" carrying 16 ICBMs "Bulava".

    Manufacturing technology and the modernization of the land has remained at about the same level as last year, for example, still received two sets of missile brigade "Iskander-M". In total, modernized and built up to 1172 units of armored vehicles (tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers, armored vehicles), 148 rocket and artillery systems and up to 2292 vehicles. But the main novelty was the new generation of armored vehicles, pre-series batch which is shown in the Victory Parade on May 9 in Moscow. Were demonstrated tank T-14 heavy infantry fighting vehicles T-15 created Undercarriage "Armata", infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers on the basis of track platform "Kurganets-25" wheeled APCs "Boomerang", 152-mm self-propelled howitzer "Coalition-SV" .

    Air defenses were also reported in the planned amount

    Military shipbuilding - the most vulnerable sector
    Russian Navy was in 2015, two diesel-electric submarine project 636.6 "Warszawianka" (1 in 2014), 2 nuclear submarine Project 955 "Borey" (1 in 2014), two small missile ship project 21631 and other ships: in total 8 surface and 16 support vessels.
    In addition, the state tests patrol ship project 11356 "Admiral Grigorovich" (to be adopted in February 2016). Two more ships of this type will be commissioned in 2016. But associated with them, and a big problem - the ships of the project established Ukrainian power plants, so the fate of the 3 more ships under construction a few vague, although the construction and start again.
    In general, the Navy may be affected by the economic crisis and sanctions hardest: the industry was in a very serious condition, the large surface ships were not built for many years, so the "save" means the budget, probably, it is the shipbuilders. Enough hard problem is the dependence on the Ukrainian and German power plants that are now impossible to buy.

    Sanctions and "cheap oil" could not seriously harm the Russian military-industrial complex

    The main conclusion is that Western sanctions and economic crisis in two years could not fundamentally affect the military-industrial complex of the Russian Federation - there were some problems in some sectors, many of which have been solved, while others need to be addressed (for example, personal "extremely" complicated Ukrainian analogues in the manufacture of ship propulsion systems in RF not simply because this Soviet design, thus - a matter of time). However, the next 2-3 years will be very revealing - primarily because of the problems in the economy. The first task for the military-industrial complex - run state armaments program until 2020. Just the results of 2016, 2017 and 2018 and show us whether the Russian "defense industry" stand up the pace. In addition, you must have an active work on the state armaments program until 2025 (its adoption is postponed due to the unpredictable economic situation in the country).

    So Kudrin believes that in 2 - 3 years time, if current economic situations holds same (unlikely) that defense spending will have to be reduced.  He makes good points but main point should be made is to stretch out sap2020 to possibly 2025 so it can still meet the needs of the military, just reduced perchases per year to save money but in longer run, get same needed numbers of new equipment.

    It certainly must be cut if there will be basically no growth in the next few years, but indeed that seems to be quite unlikely. But even if they have to cut military spending, it seems that they SAP2020 will be largely achieved by 2020. I mean they are already at over 47% "modern", so I think they can quite "easily" reach something like 60% even in the worst case scenario by the end of 2020. They have to keep factories running after all.

    How many rubles is Russia earning per barrel at the moment? Oil has gone down to around $35 (EDIT: Urals seems to be slightly below $30), but the ruble has also weakened somewhat.
