    I've read it in the original Russian, he talked about the higher cost of new Armata.
    But if they don't sell them abroad for $, the plant & the gov. that owns it won't get any reimbursement, whatever the order costs r!
    Foreign orders r badly needed to defray of the costs of R&D + production. They don't export much else besides oil & gas; but prices for those r not that great now!
    China reportedly bought [only] 24 Su-35 fighter jets for US$2 billion ..in 2015, and Russia completed delivery of the planes by the end of last year. http://www.atimes.com/article/pla-scrambles-su-35s-j-20s-s-china-sea-us-navy-sails/
    That's $83M,333,333.3333 per plane. They had to settle for that or it could be no deal at all; & India stopped buying Russian systems.

    No, Russians don't use USD in Russia or convert it daily, ignore militarovs trolling about it. All prices are in Rubles. So its rather meaningless to use it in USD terms.

    Just validate it by how much Russia spends on jets or other equipment, and you will get an idea. Cost of a program is separate since mod funded it at first, unless it's MiG-35 or Su-35

    Last contract of 48 Su-35's was roughly $27M per aircraft. In Rubles it was 60B roubles.

    I spend 3 months every year, last 6 years in Russia. I live with Russian citizen 6 months a year. Closest to Russia you have been is Vodka shelf in local market. So excuse me.

    Everyone keeps savings in USD there, Euro is almost unexisting except big banknotes in most banks and exchange offices, yet USD is widespread as it gets.

    Stop calling everything you do not like trolling, makes you look retarded to say at least.

    The Ministry of Defense plans to purchase 200 tanks annually
    http://www.ng.ru/news/607632.html?print=Y


    The majority of the in-service tanks are of the T-72 and T-90 variants, including 564 modernised T-72B3 tanks (according to Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu), and 300 T-90 tanks. The modernised T-72B3 tanks are gradually replacing the other varieties, at a rate of 300 tanks per year. ..
    The goal is to unify the types of tanks as much as possible in order to reduce maintenance costs. The modernisation of T-72 tanks costs 50 million rubles (962,000 dollars) each.
    According to unofficial sources, the cost per [Armata] tank is approximately 400 million rubles [$6,853,518.16 US at today's rate], which is more than double that of the German Leopard-2 and about 60-75% higher than that of the French Leclerc and US M-1 Abrams. Yuri Borisov, the deputy defence minister responsible for procurement, has indicated that the cost is about 2.5 times higher [or $17,133,795.4] than stated in the State Armaments Programme.
    As a result, the Defence Ministry is expecting to reduce the number of Armata tanks it will procure, focusing instead on continuing to modernise existing T-72 tanks in the medium term. According to Russian media reports, Uralvagonzavod has agreed to lower some Armata costs, but the programme will still be expensive.
    https://russiamil.wordpress.com/2015/07/15/armata-russias-future-main-battle-tank/

    Using the above figures, 200 x $17,133,795.4= $3B 426M 759, 080 per year, + 300/y x $962,000 mod. T-72B3 tanks= $288 600,000; Total:  $3B 715M 359,080 per year. If we include the year 2020, $3B 715M 359,080 x 3= $11B 146M 077, 240  That's a lot!

    Pretty shit investment. T-72B3s only have kontakt 5 and are onsolete no matter how many fancy digital crap you put into them. IF this year they were gonna buy a 100 T-90 proryvs with 2A82 guns and relikt armor then we'd be talking.

    And even weirder is that they filmed this massive ship section being built there while making documentary the other day, you can clearly see it on this video in the background at 0:42 seconds​:

    Dont worry we all know about your opinions wrt Lider Smile





    But form sometime MoD was saying: first hello carriers/LHDs then Liders. So looks like after 2025 Lider bookmark will be  laid at earliest.

    And it seems to me that you don't understand RuAF either. Not realizing that the procurement of current aircraft (Su-35, Su-34, Su-30SM) is going to remain roughly the same until the mid-20s. You seemed to think that Su-57 is going to just replace all/most of them in production by 2020, or something, which is obviously not the case. The maximum annual order of Su-57 is around 10-12 planes, it obviously can't be faster than the current pace of Su-35 procurement.



    What again is quite logical: upgrading production capabilities if you dont expect a massive war is also helluva expensive. 10-18 planes per year seem to be realistic for Su-57. Unless there will be export contract of course.

    Ever heard of this concept called 'reality'?

    Israeli aircrafts do not count as US coalition planes?

    The Russian/Syrian Joint Air Defense Command did not it just after the attack?

    Israel is not part of Coalitions operation.

    This was not the question.

    So people, the correct way to reply is to copy only the text you are replying to... ie for Militarov above you should have just posted this:


    Israeli aircrafts do not count as US coalition planes?

    The Russian/Syrian Joint Air Defense Command did not it just after the attack?


    And then put your reply here.

    Eehnie should have responded by copying the reply from Militarov:

    Israel is not part of Coalitions operation.

    and then typed his response here... there is no need to repeat everything.

    If you insist on using the quote button to reply to a post then delete the other quotes first so that all that is left is what you are replying to and an end quote in square brackets and an open quote in square brackets and the name of the person who made that statement.

    Several dozens wounded matches with the story where there were 14 who lost their lives.

    Moral of the story: Don't be an idiot. Or at least pick up the phone before doing something stupid on your own next time.


    The only idiot here is you.. with your blowjob to Putin..

    All operations in Syria of Private military contractors are coordinated with the Russia Minister of defense..
    It will be incredibly FOOLISH to not provide weapons and technology and satellite data to them... and not take advantage of their major help with boots on the ground. On top that the Russia military ,needs to know at all times
    their locations ,so they are not bombed by their own forces.. Russia military was responsible for their protection..
    in same way they are for every pilot and special forces on the ground , providing intelligence .

    In other words.. this was a major fuck in the ass to your Putin lover. and a major humiliating event for Russia.. their private military contractors were killed. several dozens of them.. and Russia military did nothing to help them..  which ever way you see this.. there is no way in hell ,you can  blame the russian citizens , former military from Russia armed forced for being killed in Syria ,consequences of their Government President Putin ,your lover ,being incredibly weak and insecure with Americans.

    There could have been a million things to save their military lives. like flying with planes over their zone
    as deterrence to US airforce.. but looks like Putin was busy celebrating the hockey victory of Russia team
    in korea winter olympics.  The message that the world weakest leader.. Putin is sending the world.. is that
    is ok to bomb in Syria for NATO or any other in any part they want.. because Russia will do nothing about it..
    it will look to the other side ,even if Russian soldiers or Russian citizens paramilitary groups are killed.  and
    will only observe how the Russian private military contractors are destroyed in Syria and Russia will sacrifice
    them all the time ,In order to not have to face their "American parters"..

    ----------------------

    Also I propose that the Twitter to be included in this rule because of the very very very low quality of Twitter "sources":

    14] Do note quote wiki, debka or strategy page, find a better source


    ----------------------

    Finnally, I expect the Moderators analyze the signature of Papadragon.

    I think can be breaking the following rules:

    2] No spamming or trolling
    7] Do not disrespect members, do not attack the messenger, attack the message
    8] Do not disrespect RDF staff or the forum itself.
    11] Do not post outside sources in other languages without English translation.
    16] Stay on topic

    His signature covers half of the screen in every message he writes. I consider it spamming.

    Also not sure in which rule would be, but there is a quote of a fascist dictator that includes a fascist salute, that is the Spanish version of the Hail Hittler, and was used the same way. I expect this to be reviewed, because of this in addition to by disrespecting, with the fascist salute clearly used to insult other members, by trolling and by quoting in other languages without English translation in every message he writes.

    Thank you.

    PS: Update of this comment continues.

    Compared to some of your sources Debka file and Wikipedia sound like someones PhD thesis.

    No line in that signature contains link to other websites

    Isn't that your MO?

    Signature seem to be quite respectful of theme of Russian historic military accomplishments in uplifting and whimsical manner.

    eehnie wrote:....11] Do not post outside sources in other languages without English translation....

    I think you have no problems translating it, it's in your mother language after all.

    Also, yesterday I was American who could only speak English but today I post in other languages? Holy hell, I am genius!!!

    Besides, what you try to pass off as comments barely qualifies as English language so next time you type something please provide is with English translation (or hit the grammar books for couple of months)

    It's my signature so it's definitely on topic. Topic of signature being me.

    My bad, I should quote several pages of text like you, it should trim down the ratio. Cool

    Until they discover WW2 death camp in Spain you are shit out of luck. Also your pathetic attempts to slander a respected country are disgusting. Almost as bad as carrying out brutal and bloody terror acts against innocent civilians in the name of non-existent ethnic group. But what kind of monsters would do something like that? No

    temporary talking bollock thread2

    Post  GarryB on Tue Feb 20, 2018 11:36 pm

    OK, I am going to have a tidy up of this thread and most of it is going to the talking bollocks thread.

    Three highlights I will mention... number one, Vann, you are going to get a short break from this forum for personal attacks... the rules are pretty clear and there have been plenty of warnings.
    Two most of you are following the quoting rules above, thank you.

    Three... ATLASCLUB, post 808 on this thread you quote three members for one line of reply... the posts of the first two members are printed above, there is no need to repeat them... you just needed to quote Vann. I said I would not ban straight away but would give warnings, so you get a warning. If you don't understand what you did wrong or need assistance to do the right thing send me a PM and I will explain further, or perhaps once I have moved these posts to the talking bollocks thread you can ask me there, or anyone else who does not understand and wants advice, instruction... this is the amnesty period where you can get away with I did not know... later on there will just be a ban so you wont be able to ask questions until the ban has run its course....

    Is this of your own or is from other source?

    Thanks for the complement of thinking I could have created it but no, I can't understand Arabic script and don't have a real knowledge of where villages are in Afrin.

    It may well have been created by the person whose Twitter account I got it from, Qalaat Al Mudiq as per the others recently, named above.

    But it might have been this guy

    It would be better then if you quote properly. It is confusing. You mix your own words with other that are not from you. Is this quoting way (even without links) in agreement with the rules?

    Also to remember that you asked for banning people that posted non English messages without translation.

    Finally, the source seems of very poor quality, like Twitter sources in overall terms.
