    No.

    Yes because it is costly and the need is the same within nato standards. Russia also faces the reality of the costs with their new su-57, t-14 ...

    What? What did you base this on? Armata and Su-57 isn't/wasn't ready yet. Cost has little to do with it especially when the cost isn't really all that high.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin believes that relations between Russia and Mongolia will reach a new level after the signing of an indefinite agreement on friendly relations and a comprehensive strategic partnership.
    The Russian leader said this in anticipation of his visit to Mongolia in an interview with the newspaper Odriyn Sonin.
    “Following the visit, an interstate agreement on friendly relations and a comprehensive strategic partnership will be signed,” the Kremlin’s website quotes Putin.
    He noted that this agreement will bring relations between Russia and Mongolia to a qualitatively new level and will have an unlimited character.
    Earlier, PolitExpert reported that the military personnel of Russia and Mongolia conducted a joint training with live firing as part of the Selenga 2019 maneuvers.

    Given her strategic Central Asian location between the RF & the PRC,
    Mongolia must be kept away from any harmful Western influence.

    Russia's Defense Ministry unveils scenario of Tsentr-2019 drills


    The exercise will be held in two phases

    MOSCOW, September 12. /TASS/. The Russian army with a coalition of friendly countries participating in the strategic command-and-staff exercise Tsentr-2019 will neutralize an abstract country responsible for spawning terrorism and unleashing war, Russia’s Deputy Defense Minister Colonel-General Alexander Fomin told a news briefing for foreign military attaches on Thursday.

    According to the scenario, the influence of Islamic extremism on countries in the Middle East, Southeast Asia and eventually Central Asia is growing.

    "A hypothetical state emerges in the southwest of Russia. Its leadership shares the extremist ideas of leaders of international terrorist organizations," he said. From the imaginary country radical Islamism begins to spread into the territories of neighboring countries.

    "The imaginary country having an advanced army makes attempts to exert pressure, including military pressure, on Russia. The escalation of tensions eventually evolves into an armed conflict," Fomin said.

    Theme and phases of the exercise


    Fomin said the focus of the exercise would be on ways of using the coalition’s military group for struggle against international terrorism and measures to maintain military security in Central Asia. Military contingents from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, India, China and Pakistan have been invited to participate.

    The exercise will be held in two phases. The first one lasting three days will be devoted to polishing the command and control of troops, measures to repel air strikes, and reconnaissance and defensive operations. In the second two-day phase a multinational group of troops will carry out a massive fire strike against the hypothetical enemy.

    The number of troops

    The main phase of the strategic command-and-staff exercise will involve nearly 13,000 troops, Russia’s Deputy Defense Minister Colonel-General Alexander Fomin told the news briefing for foreign military attaches.

    "At the Totsky and Adanak proving grounds in the European part of Russia within the zone of the Vienna Document of 2011 on confidence and security building measures, and also at the Donguz proving ground up to 12,950 men will be involved (10,700 Russian servicemen and up to 2,250 foreign ones), Fomin said.

    Up to 250 tanks, 450 armored personnel carriers and up to 200 artillery pieces and multiple rocket launchers will be deployed in the main episode of the exercise.

    Sites


    The main events of the Tsentr-2019 exercise will take place on September 16-21 at eight proving grounds in Russia (Totsky and Donguz in the Orenburg Region, Adanak in Dagestan, Ashuluk near Astrakhan, Chebarkul in the Chelyabinsk Region, Safakulevo near Kurgan, Aleisk and Yurga proving grounds in the Altai Region and the Kemerovo regions respectively and on the Caspian Sea), as well as foreign proving grounds in Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and the territory of Russia’s 201st military base in Tajikistan.

    Involved in the Tsentr-2019 exercise will be 128,000 troops, 20,000 pieces of military equipment, 600 aircraft and 15 ships.

    IMO, Russia should erect a chain of high hills on her Western border, across the the E. European plain to make any future ground invasion impossible or very costly.
    It may take a long time & a lot of $, but in the long run will save more $ & lives, just lie the Great Wall of China did.

    Defective defense of Primorye

    The Trans-Siberian Railway is still the longest railway in the world. Its zero kilometer is at the Yaroslavl station of Moscow, the last, 9288th, at the station of Vladivostok. This railway connecting Vladivostok with the rest of Russia seems to strengthen its strategic position. But in fact, the situation is extremely difficult. Vladivostok and neighboring Artem, Nakhodka, Ussuriysk, other cities and villages of the southern part of Primorsky Krai are located just a few turns of the border from the main territory of the country, and the Trans-Siberian Railway passes right next to this border. China is located abroad, which is officially listed as our strategic partner, but in reality it represents the most serious threat to the eastern regions of Russia, and to Russia as a whole. Vladivostok and neighboring cities are sandwiched between the Chinese border and the ocean, which we also do not control. There is nowhere to retreat from here, no reinforcements to be expected from. Even the islands and peninsulas of the Far East (Sakhalin, Kuril Islands, Kamchatka, Chukotka) that do not have land communications with the mainland  the situation is not that, to put it mildly not easy.

    The defense of Primorye is carried out by the 5th army with headquarters in Ussuriysk. It consists of eight brigades and one regiment.

    The 59th motorized rifle brigade is deployed in the village of Sergeevka, the 60th motorized rifle brigade is in the village. Kamen-Rybolov and the Monastery, 70th motorized rifle brigade - in s. Drum In total, they are armed with 123 T-72B tanks, 240 BMP-1 tanks (yes, still!), More than 80 BTR-80s, about 200 MTLBs, more than 100 152-mm self-propelled guns 2S3 Akatsiya and 2S19 Msta-S ", More than 50 120-mm mortars 2S12" Sani ", 54 122-mm MLRS BM-21" Grad ", up to 40 self-propelled anti-tank systems" Competition "(also still), up to 20 100-mm anti-tank vehicles MT-12, not less than 40 air defense systems "Tor-M2U" and "Strela-10", up to 20 ZSU-23-4 "Shilka" (again, until now). Currently, the 127th Motorized Rifle Division with headquarters in Sergeevka is being reconstructed on the basis of these three brigades. In particular, the 59th Motorized Rifle Brigade was transformed into the 394th Motorized Rifle Regiment of this division. At the same time, the T-80BV tanks (lifted from storage), and not the T-72, are likely to be in service with the division.

    The 20th Missile Brigade (Spassk-Dalniy) has 12 ISK Iskander launchers in service.

    The 305th artillery brigade (Ussuriysk) has 18 152-mm self-propelled guns 2S5 "Hyacinth", 8 240-mm self-propelled mortars 2С4 "Tulip", 8 MLRS "Hurricane", 18 self-propelled anti-tank systems "Sturm-S", 6 anti-tank missiles MT-12 .

    Also in Ussuriysk, the 80th command brigade, the 101st MTO brigade, and the 8th anti-aircraft missile brigade with three divisions of the Buk-M1 air defense missile systems were deployed. In the village Sergeevka is stationed the 25th RKhBZ regiment with 3 flamethrower MLRS TOS-1A.

    In addition, the 5th Army includes two bases for the storage and repair of weapons and equipment (bhirvt). The 245th bhirvt is located in the city of Lesozavodsk, the 247th bhirvt is in the village. The monastery. Each of them is a folded motorized rifle brigade.

    Four more brigades, one regiment and one bhirvt, stationed in Primorye, report directly to the command of the BBO.

    In Ussuriysk, the 83rd Air Assault Brigade, the 338th RSZO Brigade with 18 Uragan MLRS, and the 7020th Bhirvt (collapsed artillery brigade) are deployed. The 106th communications brigade was deployed in the city of Dalnerechensk, the 92nd radio engineering brigade in the village of Starosysoevka, and the 7th radio engineering regiment in Artyom.

    Two air regiments and an army aviation base are deployed from the 11th Air Force and Air Defense Army with headquarters in Khabarovsk in Primorye.

    The 22nd Fighter Aviation Regiment is deployed at the Tsentralnaya-Uglovaya aerodrome in the city of Artem. In service, it has 22 MiG-31BSM interceptors, 11 new Su-35S fighters and 4 Su-30M2 fighter-bomber, up to 9 older, but modernized Su-27SM fighters and 2 combat training Su-27UB.

    The 18th assault air regiment is deployed at the Chernigovka airfield; it has 24 Su-25SM attack aircraft in service. At the same airfield, the 575th Army Airbase with 36 Mi-24P and Ka-52 combat helicopters and 19 Mi-8AMTSH multi-role helicopters is deployed.

    The 93rd Air Defense Division with headquarters in Vladivostok includes the 344th Radio Technical Regiment (in Artyom) and two anti-aircraft missile regiments: 589th in Nakhodka with two S-400 air defense divisions and 1533rd in Vladivostok, also with two S-400 air defense divisions and one S-300PS air defense missile division.

    Vladivostok is the main base of the Pacific Fleet, its main surface forces, shipbuilding and ship repair base are deployed here.

    In total, the Pacific Fleet Primorsky Flotilla has 7 submarines of pr. 877 (B-187 Komsomolsk-on-Amur, B-190 Krasnokamensk, B-345 Mogocha, B-394 Nurlat, B-464 Ust -Kamchatsk ”, B-445“ Nikolai the Miracle Worker ”, B-494“ Ust-Bolsheretsk ”), missile cruiser“ Varyag ”, pr. 1164, 3 destroyers, pr. 956 (“ Stormy ”,“ Fast ”,“ Fearless ”), 4 BOD Project 1155 (Admiral Panteleev, Admiral Tributs, Admiral Vinogradov, Marshal Shaposhnikov), 4 IPC Project 1124M (IPC-17 Ust-Ilimsk, MPK-64 Metel, MPK ‑221 “Primorsky” and MPK ‑ 222 “Koreets”), 1 missile boat, Project 1241T (R ‑ 79) and 10 Project 12411 (R ‑ 11, R ‑ 14, R ‑ 18, R 19, P-20, P-2 4, P-29, P-261, P-297, P-298), 3 base minesweeps, pr. 1265 (BT-100, BT-114, BT-232), BDK " Nikolay Vilkov ”, pr. 1171, 3 BDK pr. 775 (BDK-11“ Peresvet ”, BDK-98“ Admiral Nevelskaya ”, BDK-101“ Oslyabya ”) and the landing boat“ Ivan Kartsov ”pr. 21820.

    72nd Coastal Missile Brigade deployed in the village. Smolyaninovo near Vladivostok. It includes three divisions - two divisions of PKKK “Bastion” and one division of PKKK “Bal”. In fact, Vladivostok is hiding behind only one Bastion division, the other two divisions are transferred to the southern Kuril Islands disputed by Japan. The PKKK Bastion division is located on about. Iturup, division of PKK "Ball" - on about. Kunashir.

    The 155th Marine Brigade is stationed in Vladivostok. It is armed with at least 10 T-80BV tanks, up to 60 BTR-80 and BTR-82A, up to 20 self-propelled guns 2S1 and 2S9, 6 MLRS BM-21, SAM "Strela-10", SAM "Tunguska".

    At the 7062nd naval aviation base (Nikolaevka, Nakhodka airdrome) there are 6 IL-38 anti-submarine aircraft (including 2 modernized IL-38N), 1 VKP Il-22, 7 Ka-27 anti-submarine helicopters, 6 Ka-29 attack aircraft and 2 multipurpose Mi-8s. 12 air transport aircraft of the Pacific Fleet are based at the Knevichi airfield in Artem.

    The grouping of the RF Armed Forces deployed in Primorye will not allow Japan to land troops here, but it is unlikely to prevent the region from being blocked by the Sea of ​​Japan. The same applies to the US Navy. But Russian troops in the Vladivostok region, unfortunately, will not be able to confront the PLA for at least a long time, given the enormous quantitative, and in many respects qualitative superiority of the enemy. The Russian group has no room for maneuver; it has neither a pre-field, nor operational, nor strategic depth. You can only retreat into the ocean or, at best, into the Sikhote-Alin mountains (and there you can proceed to a guerrilla war, which, alas, will be able to be waged for very short time without external support). The situation is aggravated by a very high proportion of openly obsolete equipment in service with Russian units and, as was said at the beginning, the lack of a real opportunity to receive reinforcements and supplies from the mainland.

    Thus, the group defending the “far, but nashenny” region is completely inadequate to the situation on the theater of military operations. However, it is not very clear what efforts should be made to eliminate this inadequacy. Perhaps that is why no effort, in fact, is being undertaken at all. The “injections” of modern technology into the units and formations deployed here (Iskander, Tor-M2U, S-400, Su-35S, Ka-52, “Bal” and “Bastion”) are so insignificant in volume that in no way they cannot affect the general balance of forces in the region (at the same time, the equipment of the ground forces, which the main burden of the war will certainly fall on, is not being updated at all). But the volumes of false propaganda demagogy about “strategic partnership” and “unprecedented good relations” with Beijing are infinitely large.

    Lol, that's not "false propaganda," it's the truth.

    And suuuuuure, a Chinese surprise attack is a serious possibility in the near future. Rolling Eyes USN and USAF don't exist, apparently.

    So the remaining 30% of Ground Forces will be modernized to the "2020 standard" by 2028, I assume?

    So he is assuming that China will just invade Siberia.  Gee, I wonder where I keep hearing that from - oh yeah, the American backed propagandists in Russia.

    So far, China could and they didn't.  Plus Russia has nukes so they could just easily nuke China's major cities if they decide to attack in large forces.

    I think the "strategist" is a retarded faggot and knows zero about military.

    Just an FYI but Siberia region was always rather under armed and under enforced and yet they managed to kick china's ass in 69.  China had superior numbers.  And quality equipment?  This guy is a delusional moron.  China has proven their quality doesn't exist.  They always used numbers and it never worked out for them.

    Yeah, you gotta protract from any potential enemy. That includes China. But lets be real here, Russia doesn't have the manpower to do all of that. So instead the best they can hope for is leaving a buffer zone and just make it clear that any northern positions of China will be struck hard, and so will their HQ's in inner china.

    China is so damn concentrated they have nowhere to flee back to incase of a nuclear strike. Most of China's positions are concentrated on the east and western borders because India would take advantage of a war between Russia and China.

    Many forget that. Giving a nuclear power that also has 100  long range bombers armed with long range cruise missiles the right to defend itself put you in a terrible position (i.e Turkey downing su24) and that's only at that moment you know you fucked up.

    Another exemple is the interception by those small european countries in the baltic where any little incident can bring them to the reality of becoming a big target for russian weapons and no one will save them.

    China is so damn concentrated they have nowhere to flee back to incase of a nuclear strike. Most of China's positions are concentrated on the east and western borders because India would take advantage of a war between Russia and China.

    Many don't won't to see the reality. China is looking at the south for its expension and is already grabing it but they are stuck with this idea of expension in siberia.

    Frankly speaking they have no interest in Siberia which is totaly empty and cold land. Most chinese couldn't survive 1 year there. It's easier for them to buy from russia what they need.

    China has proven their quality doesn't exist.

    Their latest MLRS r longer range than their Russian counterparts, & the Soviet Grads stopped the Maoists in 1969.

    Right. Only the area close  & along the border is suitable for Chinese way of life & agriculture. If they were to acquire Siberia, it will be another Tibet & Sinkiang- as big areas r populated by nationalistic Buryats (Tibetan Buddhist Mongols) & animist Yakuts, besides many other natives.

    their MLRS system is no different than the american ALCADS system in the sense it isn't long range. Only two missiles are.

    The system includes more than just missiles.
    Maximum firing range 190 mi (300 km)
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MGM-140_ATACMS

    SY-400 is a further development of SY-300, that can carry either two short-range ballistic missiles BP-12A with range of 400 km or twelve 300 mm PHL-03 rockets.

    That's an easy target for buk-m2, buk-m3, S-300pmu2 and s-300V/V4. I would bet that even tor could destroy them.

    Moreover attacking 400km away require good intel. Even then they would do very little damage because since the apparition of nuclear warheads the doctrine is to widespread the troops across the terrain so that they can't be targeted all togather.

    Moreover su-25 would be the king of the air over there since there is few airbases in those lost lands and with its an 124 russia will bring faster and more equipment giving them the opportunity to destroy chinese airfields before they are able to protect them. Su-25 would destroy any armoured division trying to come deeper than 100km inside russia. Su-57 would take out any chinese bomber with r-37 and any chinese jets with r-77M. Su-34 would take out supply lines.

    In terms of tanks, russians are ahead and their french thermals are a game changer against chinese.

    Institute for Political and Military Analysis is a Moscow based Russian non-government Think Tank, who also does research for the Russian government, security services, military and business. Members are for the most part considered conservative by Western sources as opposed to liberal. My take on the article was the writer was complaining the Russian government and military were not putting enough defensive resources in the East. Most Westerns are oblivious to the fact that Putin's main opposition in Russia is not the western style liberals but Communists first followed closely by conservative Russian nationalists.

    The USSR had a big contingent in Mongolia for many years against any Chinese aggressive move in the FE. Today, Russia can always send tank & air armies to Mongolia-it has a rail line to the Chinese border & a few big airfields- from there, it's not too far from Beijing.
    As long as Russia has nukes & stays together, she has nothing to fear from China.

    Non-Debate: Russia is building China's Early Warning System, their won't be any war between them....any other aspect of this debate isn't even worth discussing.
