    Russia's rearmament 50% ahead of plan — official

    Instead of rearming the Russian Armed Forces, including the Arctic Strategic Command by 30% Russia has achieved 47% implementation

    MOSCOW, February 26. /TASS/. The plan for rearming the Russian army and navy by 2020 is being implemented 50% ahead of time, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin told the Federation Council on Friday.

    "We keep the situation under control from the standpoint of implementing the state program for armaments extending till 2020," he said. "We are ahead of time. Instead of rearming the Russian Armed Forces, including the Arctic Strategic Command by 30% we have achieved 47% implementation. In other words, we are 50% ahead of our own targets."

    Rogozin thanked the Russian parliament for supporting the defense budget in this no easy economic period. He recalled once again it was utterly impermissible to ineffectively use budget funds. Instances of corruption were rare, he remarked.

    Rostec's Sergei Chemezov thinks that the defence order will be cut by 10% this year:

    http://www.wsj.com/articles/wsj-q-a-with-sergei-chemezov-1457657218

    I wonder how much it increased from 2014 to 2016? Probably over 10%? Because that year was already a very good one for the armaments program. Not to mention that according to Rogozin they are actually ahead of the plan.

    Putin to hold military products acceptance day at National Defense Center

    The supreme commander-in-chief will hear reports by the leadership of the Russian Defense Ministry, defense industry companies, military-building complex, the commanders of military units


    MOSCOW, March 11. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold the single day of military products’ acceptance at the Russian National Defense Center on Friday, the Kremlin press service reported.

    "The supreme commander-in-chief will hear reports made by the leadership of the Russian Defense Ministry, defense industry companies, military-building complex, the commanders of military units and formations on the results of delivery of weapons and military equipment to the army and the results of the Russian Armed Forces’ infrastructure development in 2015 and the progress of the state defense order fulfillment in the first quarter of 2016", the press service said.

    Representatives of the federal executive and legislative power bodies, the heads of state corporations and the leadership of the General Prosecutor's Office will take part in the work of the military products’ acceptance single day.

    The single day of acceptance of weapons and military equipment that are entering service with the army, as well as military and social infrastructure facilities of the Russian Armed Forces is held quarterly. These activities take place with the participation of representatives of defense companies and are a kind of an interim report on the work within the state defense order fulfilment. In addition to the signing of the armaments’ transfer and acceptance acts, the fulfilment of the state defense order requirements by different companies and compliance with the approved schedule is analyzed.

    The Russian National Defense Control Center was officially put on combat duty on December 1, 2014. The Center is a big complex with numerous channels of incoming and outgoing information.

    The most important and secret information is transmitted through alternative communications channels by the equipment that differs from the main systems of the Center, which guarantees its resistance to cyberattacks.

    The new Center comprises the Control Center of Strategic Nuclear Forces (which oversees issues of use of weapons of mass destruction), the Combat Control Center (which analyses threats) and the Daily Activities Control Center (which deals with procurement issues). According to Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu, the Centre is a new tool which "will allow conducting a continuous analysis of the environment and developing means of responding towards changes and rapidly coordinating the activity of federal bodies of the executive power in the defense sphere." The Centre handles real-time information about all the troops’ formations and facilities. The Center’s hardware and software complex is capable of simulating crisis situations not only around the borders of Russia, but also anywhere in the world.

    According to the deputy head of the military department, the nature of war is changing widely used reconnaissance, precision weapons, electronic warfare

    KAZAN, 6 April. / TASS /. The new state program of armaments to the years 2018-2025 will be developed taking into account the experience of military action in Syria, he said on Wednesday Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov.

    "Of course, on the basis of in-depth analysis of all military conflicts, including the Syrian campaign, we will make changes to those activities that we plan for the next state program of armaments" - Borisov said during his visit to Kazan Optical and Mechanical Plant.

    As the deputy head of the military department said, the nature of war is changing widely used reconnaissance, precision weapons, electronic warfare .

    Impact of the Economic Crisis

    https://thecipherbrief.com/article/europe/impact-economic-crisis-1090

    The drop in Russian state revenues has affected Russian military modernization to some extent, though the Russian government has made an effort to insulate the military from budget cuts. Although the 2015 military budget was cut by five percent mid-year, the total allocation was still 25 percent higher than the previous year’s budget. This allowed the military to continue its modernization process, conduct operations in Syria, and fulfill its training and exercise programs.

    With oil prices remaining low, the military is facing a more difficult financial picture in 2016. In November, the Finance Ministry announced that the total 2016 defense budget would be largely the same as in 2015. However, last month, an additional five percent cut was announced, which will result in the first annual net decline in Russian defense spending since Vladimir Putin became president in 2000.

    As a result of the deteriorating financial outlook, the fulfillment of the 2011-2020 State Armament Program is now in question. The Russian military continues to develop new designs and receive new hardware but has been forced to reduce the quantities purchased of some items and to defer some big ticket items. For example, completion of the Yasen and Borei nuclear submarine construction programs has been pushed back from 2020 to no earlier than 2023 for the Yasen class and 2021 for the Borei class. Whereas Uralvagonzavod has previously announced that it will provide 2300 Armata T-14 main battle tanks to the Russian army by 2020, experts believe that only 200-300 will actually be procured over the next five years, with 2300 remaining a goal for 2030. Completion of the Barguzin railroad-based ICBM system was initially delayed by a over a year and then canceled due to financial problems. Finally, orders of the T-50 fifth generation fighter aircraft were reduced in 2015 from 55 to 12 because of the country’s deteriorating financial situation.

    Longer term projects have also faced delays, with procurement of a new long range strategic bomber being postponed in favor of modernization of existing bombers. Plans for building large naval ships have been particularly affected. Construction of a new 14 thousand ton nuclear-powered destroyer, once intended to start in 2016, appears to no longer be under discussion, while plans for large amphibious assault ships, meant to replace the Mistral project that was canceled due to Western sanctions, remain amorphous and may have been quietly put on the back burner.

    Overall, the constraints on procurement that have resulted from military budget cuts should not affect Russia’s strategic outlook in the near to medium term. The net effect of the procurement delays is that the Russian military will continue to depend on existing platforms and weapons to a greater extent and for a longer time period than originally hoped by the organizers of the military modernization effort. However, the Russian military is more than strong enough to hold its own in a conventional conflict against any likely adversaries other than the United States. And it could not hope to match the U.S. military even if the 2020 State Armament Program was fully implemented.

    U.S. policymakers should not assume that Russia’s budget problems mean that they can stop thinking about the Russian military. While the Russian military is postponing and delaying many of its most ambitious military procurement projects, the financial situation has had a very limited impact on current military operations. The Russian military has shown that it can continue to maintain its schedule of exercises despite the financial constraints. The military has continued to regularly hold snap exercises, a practice that was begun by Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu soon after his appointment. The added financial outlays that resulted from the operation in Syria have been absorbed by the Defense Ministry without problem, with part of the cost being simply reallocated from the training budget.

    Russia’s economic crisis has had at least one positive outcome for the Russian military. The number of applicants to serve as contract soldiers in the military has increased. For young men from small towns in the provinces, a military salary can provide a secure paycheck and reasonable living conditions. With the economic slowdown, the army has become a more attractive option.

    The potential threat posed by the Russian military to Western states does not depend on the full implementation of all of the procurement plans. Russia’s existing complement of military hardware includes formidable air defense systems, high quality strike aircraft, and a growing number of ships and submarines equipped with land-attack and anti-ship cruise missiles. These forces have demonstrated their ability to conduct a small but effective air strike campaign in Syria, can present a strong A2/AD challenge to NATO forces operating near Russia’s borders, and have the capability of using cruise missiles to threaten targets up to 2500km away from ships located in enclosed seas (such as the Caspian and the Black Sea) where they are quite well-protected from potential adversaries. These existing capabilities will present a concern for U.S. military planners regardless of Russia’s ability to complete its larger military modernization program.

    Another garbage article?

    Nothing stated in the article has ANYTHING to do with budget.  Anyone with half a fucking brain would be able to point this out.

    Lets begin:


    The drop in Russian state revenues has affected Russian military modernization to some extent, though the Russian government has made an effort to insulate the military from budget cuts. Although the 2015 military budget was cut by five percent mid-year, the total allocation was still 25 percent higher than the previous year’s budget.

    With oil prices remaining low, the military is facing a more difficult financial picture in 2016.

However, last month, an additional five percent cut was announced, which will result in the first annual net decline in Russian defense spending since Vladimir Putin became president in 2000.

    I am starting to think you are purposely posting rehashes from what you or others have posted in the past, but this one sure sounds familiar already.  But let me break this one apart: http://russia-insider.com/en/putin-vows-defense-cut-wont-affect-procurement/ri13332

    Since it has already been stated with:
    The downside of this is that spending cuts will disproportionally affect personnel costs perhaps slowing down Russia's drive to attain more professional soldiers and rely less on conscripts serving short, 1-year terms.

    As a result of the deteriorating financial outlook, the fulfillment of the 2011-2020 State Armament Program is now in question. The Russian military continues to develop new designs and receive new hardware but has been forced to reduce the quantities purchased of some items and to defer some big ticket items. For example, completion of the Yasen and Borei nuclear submarine construction programs has been pushed back from 2020 to no earlier than 2023 for the Yasen class and 2021 for the Borei class. Whereas Uralvagonzavod has previously announced that it will provide 2300 Armata T-14 main battle tanks to the Russian army by 2020, experts believe that only 200-300 will actually be procured over the next five years, with 2300 remaining a goal for 2030. Completion of the Barguzin railroad-based ICBM system was initially delayed by a over a year and then canceled due to financial problems. Finally, orders of the T-50 fifth generation fighter aircraft were reduced in 2015 from 55 to 12 because of the country’s deteriorating financial situation.

    Once again, whoever quotes this idiot as worthy of anything, should be fired from whatever job they have especially if it is a so called think tank.  Let me explain:

    The T-50 is being ordered by 12+0 due to the fact that these are training units for actual use.  Anyone will know that a unit is derived of 12 aircrafts, hence why Russia purchases in 12's.  Notice that no additional orders mentioned? it is all because it is for training and seeing serial production.  As for when items are pushed back isn't anything to do with finances.  The projects are already financed.  When it is pushed back during its production is due to the fact that there are issues with either production or suppliers:

       Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov told the meeting that arms plants have missed delivery schedules on 15 warplanes, eight navy ships and 240 armored vehicles among other weapons systems.

       Borisov said that some of the delays were linked to subcontractors going out of business and missing technology.

       He claimed that the Western ban on the sales of weapons and arms technologies to Russia and Ukraine's decision to halt military industrial cooperation with Russia "had no significant impact" on Russian arms production.


    Longer term projects have also faced delays, with procurement of a new long range strategic bomber being postponed in favor of modernization of existing bombers. Plans for building large naval ships have been particularly affected. Construction of a new 14 thousand ton nuclear-powered destroyer, once intended to start in 2016, appears to no longer be under discussion, while plans for large amphibious assault ships, meant to replace the Mistral project that was canceled due to Western sanctions, remain amorphous and may have been quietly put on the back burner.

    What?  It was no more than a month and half ago (http://kret.com/en/news/10258/) we heard more about Russia's helicopter carrier.  As well, Liner hasn't even been decided yet.  And neither of these are a case regarding funds.  This is like cherry picking issues that derived from a supplier issue or production issues, and instantly state "oh, it is because of lack of funds!"  Who hires these retards?  None of this is reference to finances at all.

    This article was posted on this forums already, over a month ago, with almost exactly same details.  It was on an Indian website though and I recall bitching about it.  The article is all a bunch of "hunches" with absolutely no proof what-so-ever to back up the claims.  And even someone that can take even a few minutes to do some research will know that his comments regarding the ships, T-50, and such are all pretty much pure non-sense.

    Such articles simply turn this forums into a laughing joke, especially when it is repeated.

    MOD assistant DM for Arms purchasing says that they are in no hurry to get the T-14 and T-50 due to financial constraints and the alternates MBT modernizations and aircraft such as the Su-30SM are more then satisfactory.

    Putin would like to see the modernized equipment percentage to 50% by end of 2016 and 80% by end of 2020. Original plan was 70%.

    Of course, they will be modernized to T-90MS "Proviv-3"/"Tagil".

    Interview with the MoD's Chief of Tank - Automotive;

    https://ria.ru/interview/20160909/1476488483.html

    Hi-lights:

    - over 1,000 T-72B3's so far
    - over another 300 improved T-72B3's on their way
    - Tigr-2 looks promising
    - Typhoon 4x4 with 30mm cannon should be tested in special purpose units in 2017
    - T-90's to be upgraded when they have exhausted their resources (worn out sounds like)
    - T-14,T-15 and ARV still under testing through 2017
    - same for Kurganets and Boomerangs, no production starts before 2018
    - MoD purchasing around 200 ATV type vehicles per year
    - work continues on testing and development of all types of vehicle for extreme Northern use
    - no wheeled tank at this time

    - no wheeled tank at this time

    That does not actually surprise me.

    the concept of light (Typhoon) and Medium (Boomerang) wheeled divisions suggest to me light and medium forces that would not be used against opponents with a lot of MBTs in heavily fortified positions or urban areas etc.

    In this case the combination of light gun platforms perhaps armed with a 57mm high velocity gun and support vehicles will 120mm gun/mortars either as mortar carriers or as BMPT type tank support vehicles would make the role of an actual tank redundant.

    Any enemy tanks they might come across could easily be dealt with by Kornet type missiles or even guided artillery shells in top attack mode.
