    Thank you very much, it is very interesting. There are not more new Artillery, Surface-Air or Surface-Surface systems?

    Artillery - for new equipment not a lot. Tornado-G MRLS and Khrizantema 9P157 SPAT would comprise the most. The 2S19 MSTA finished delivering those ordered last year. Mostly this year will continue to be the upgrading of the present systems including the converting of some 2S1 to 2S34. There would probably be a few 2S35, Tornado-U and Tornado-S for testing
    SSM - scheduled delivery of 24 Iskandler SS.26
    SAM - S-400 and Pantsir S-1 systems will continue being delivered. There may also be a few S-350 arrive. Again mostly upgrades of the present systems, S-300PM to 300PMU, 300V to 300V4 and all the present Ground Forces SAM's continue to have some be upgraded.

    Some sources say that the Russian armed forces have some SA-20 (S-300PMU) and 2S19 in storage. It was rare to me since it seems that are in production still, or at least until very recently.

    Putin holds single day of military products' acceptance, modern weapons share up to 70%

    In the second quarter of 2015, the Land Forces and Airborne Forces have received more than 4,500 main weapons and military equipment pieces

    MOSCOW, July 16. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has held on Thursday the single day of acceptance of military products. The country’s Land Forces and Airborne Forces have received 4,500 pieces of military equipment.

    According to the Defense Ministry, the overall share of modern equipment and weapons systems in the Russian Armed Forces has increased. "At the moment, this figure ranges from 30.5% to 70.7%. Thus, the advanced equipment supply criterion of 30% for 2015 defined by the ‘May decrees’ of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief has been complied with," the ministry materials say.

    "In the second quarter of 2015, the Land Forces and Airborne Forces have received more than 4,500 main weapons and military equipment pieces," according to the documents. "The Air Force units have received 7 new warplanes and 6 helicopters. The Stary Oskol class submarine of Project 636.3 has been delivered to the Navy."

    In addition, according to the materials, two launches of space rockets have been carried out in the interests of the Aerospace Defense Forces over the past quarter. "The Soyuz 2-1 class carrier rockers orbited 2 military spacecraft on June 5 and June 23," the ministry documents say.

    The Defense Ministry says the implementation of the 2015 state defense order assignments and the planned budget provision for defense procurement in the coming years will ensure the prescribed pace of re-equipment of the Armed Forces with modern weapons and special military equipment.

    Sorry don't have exact figures, only estimates of upgrades completed.

    S-300V upgrade to S-300V4: total would be ~180 of which 1/3 are loading/launching vehicles. Believe upgrade to be 60% complete.
    Buk-M1 upgrade to Buk-M2: total would be ~360 of which 1/3 are loading launching vehicles. Believe upgrade to be 25-33% complete.
    Tor-M1 upgrade to Tor-M2U: total would be ~180. Believe upgrade to be 25-33% complete.

    EDIT: with the Buk-M3 and Sosna systems coming into play not sure if the upgrades of the Buk-M2 and Tor-M2U will be completed.

    Very important... more than 10,000 units of aviation weapons... this is good news as it will likely include a lot of sophisticated guided weapons along with cheaper simpler unguided weapons.

    I wonder how devaluation of Rouble affected the armament program , when rouble was 34 to a dollar the 20 trillion spending was around 650 Billion USD.

    Today the rouble at 60 its around half of that value and inflation too is much higher.

    So how does it affect the purchase and spending ?

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
