    This means that they will enforce the idea of monitoring the efficiency and success of the companies. Companies that underperform, do not meet the demands set forth or are lackluster in terms of overall performance of their products, will face the management being terminated from their positions.

    KRET entered the top 100 defense companies in the world


    Concern took 48th place in the ranking of 100 of the largest military-industrial corporations according to Defense News

    Concern "Radio-electronic technology '(KRET), part of the State Corporation Rostec, ranked 48 th position in the ranking of the 100 largest global military-industrial companies, which is the American edition of Defense News annually.

    According to its activity in KRET increased its position in the ranking last year to four lines, occupying the 48th place. Let's remind, that on results of 2014 the concern was on the 52 th place in the list of Defense News.

    As noted in the concern, the appearance KRET in the list of the largest military-industrial companies in the world in the 48 th place on the right shows the selected course of development, which is actively developing, despite the depreciation of the ruble. Under the old course of the financial performance KRET would ensure him a place in the top 20 global military-industrial holdings. The concern confident that the expansion of the export portfolio of the organization it could happen in the next few years.

    Recall that in the preparation of Defense News rankings take into account brand awareness, quality, reliability and popularity of the company's products. In addition, international experts thoroughly study their financial performance and growth dynamics over the past few years on the weapons line.

    In recent years KRET demonstrated tangible progress. By results of 2015 the Group's revenues amounted to about 120 billion rubles, at times exceeding the index of 2011 - 45 billion rubles. Net profit for the last year amounted to about 10 billion rubles, exceeding the index of 2014 by 20%.

    According to the plans concern the estimated volume of production, which will be implemented in the current year will amount to more than 101 billion rubles. In 2016 it is planned to increase the supply of land, air and naval systems, radar and electronic warfare and advanced the state radar identification.

    the russians don't have decked out tanks...and that's where we run into issues. The russian army--and more importantly, the countries it exports to (because we all know they don't actually build or design competitive stuff, but rather, they design products to be paper champions...they're made to be sold "as good as" or "better than the western versions"), are in quite the perdicament. They compete on paper, but anyone who's seend the inside of a Mig 29 vs a F16 understands just how superficial these competions are...

    Russian equipment is "designed" like their rockets....I.E. they're supposed to be more rugged (read: most of the time, heavy) and more powerful (read: it has to be, because they build heavier stuff, and lack the knowledge, capacity, and manufacturing capability to use modern materials). How does that translate?

    It translate to: every russian aircraft that was ever made. They're needlessly heavy, in avionics, weapons, and engines, as well as in powerplant technology, which refers tk energy prodution, storage, and use. In the end, soviet and russian weapons are built in the same manner a 2 year old might design an animal, if asked to produce the best animal for meat production:

    "I'll have the breasts, and legs of a chicken...the ribs of a cow...the tail of a kangaroo, because hey, lets face it, they're cool." The result is an aircraft that is big because it has big engines. It needs big engines because the avionics are heavy. It needs big avionics because of inefficiency and lazinees. And because it's all really big, they....oh yeah, they need one giant fucking fuel tank. In the end, the thing lights up like an atomic bomb on every radar in the same hemisphere, and it maneuvers with it's weapons and fuel the same way a pregnant cow approaches hopping a fence.

    But back to the problem..the problem is that they have to build shit the way they do because it subsidizes the russian army. The countries that russia exports to consist of: people who shit in holes. They couldn't tie their own shoe laces if given a 6 month course. In the end, this means that during a conflict, because the russian government and the governments of russia's friends don't exactly inspire loyalty, it's best not to put a lot of weight on the shoulders of say...a technically inclined loader, who needs a ttoooonnnn of practice (which they cant afford), training, and investment. So what would you do? You wouldnt design the best equipment for the people; who you cant count on. People are an expendable resource in conflict; instead, you design a piece of equipment that can stand on it's own, and then send one or two mechanics to take care of it.

    So...in the end, the soldiers that use the equipment never need a single degree of technical aptitude. Idiots without technical skill, and who can be sent to pull a trigger where they're told, are generally in abundace during wartime. But the fact remains, that this is a vicious, never ending cycle. You have unskilled armies with deadly, but often inferior weaponry, and because you have an unskilled and inferior force, people aren't exactly looking to sign up as a career move, and likewise, no sane leader would equip such an army with say, a billion dollar aircraft.

    So, in the end, you have autoloaders. Autoloaders are both the symptom, and the problem.

    This started with talk of why the Iraqi T-72s fought so poorly against the U.S, and this fool pretty much insulted the entire Russian MIC that's why i post this here.

    Wanna hear what you guys think.

    No worries some blogger will be declaring that Russia is still using pre-1991 production facilities to make its guns.
    Like the clown who claimed that Alamaz-Antey was still using pre-1991 equipment.

    Poor backward stupid Russians can't design anything right... and anything they get half right is a direct copy of a US product.

    I mean as mentioned the F-16 is so much better than the MiG-29... when pitched in the 1980s the F-16 was a super dogfighter that wasn't even equipped with a BVR missile because it was a super dogfighter that would prevail with its sidewinders and gun.

    A MiG-29 would piss all over it.

    Mi-24 helicopters are so dangerous that F-15 pilots wont fly within 5km of them and so end up shooting down two black hawk helos because they are too scared to get closer for a proper ID.

    Talk about the cart before the Horse... the west developed computer technology and miniaturised electronics because their rocket technology was crap Nazi shit.

    Soviet stuff is built for war. Western shit is built for profit.

    Ask the Afghans or Georgians or the Syrians or Iraqis what equipment they want to take to war.

    Or even better ask the Saudis what they want... because they are clearly experts at fighting and care so much about their people and soldiers...

    This belongs to the "funny posts & humor" thread we have here. Georgians lost their wars using Soviet/WP MBTs, artillery, attack helicopters and aircraft. Same for the Iraqis and Syrians. How is that a compliment to their kit?

    And since when kit wins wars on its own?
    Are Saudis loosing due to poor kit in Yemen? Did the US lost in Vietnam because there was something wrong e.g. with the Huey?

    The georgians were reequipped with western rifles and LMGs but when the brown stuff hit the fan all the new western weapons went into storage and the AKs came out... they certainly lost but they fought using the weapons of their choice which were Russian.

    The Syrians and Iraqis seem to prefer Soviet and Russian kit even though especially for the Iraqis they have a choice...

    And since when kit wins wars on its own?

    If all soviet and russian kit is inferior designed by 2 year old children then of course it is kit that wins wars.

    Did the US lost in Vietnam because there was something wrong e.g. with the Huey?

    They didn't lose in Vietnam, because their definition of winning was body count... they didn't lose... they ran out of ammo.

    NOTE This is a DUPLICATE of a post I put in the Russian Army subforum (state armaments programme to 2020 thread). I wasn't sure on the best place for it. Mods, please amend if needed.


    200 page 2016 academic article here. From a butthurt HATO Swede unfortunately tho. Haha

    Very interesting. Haven't really read it yet. So I don't know what the technical accuracy is like.
    Lots of crybaby whining about Russia "not respecting international law". So hold your noses in parts.

    Dmitry Rogozin: Base on the Moon plan to build by 2030

    http://www.kp.ru/daily/26623.4/3640541/&


    - When you say the "OPK" represent something powerful, gigantic. The Soviet defense industry was almost the third part of the whole industry ...

    - Military-industrial complex enterprises today is 1350 and 2 million people, and each of them - a professional in their field. From worker to scholar or konstruktora.Nasha industry produces 35% of domestic innovative products, and if you take all Russian exports, the share of defense in it 25%. Russian President Vladimir Putin in his Address to estimate the rate of growth of the industry: labor productivity - 10%, in terms of production - 10%. During the difficulties faced by the Russian economy, the defense industry compensates for the decline, which affected some of the civil sector. A number of defense companies already builds civilian production - airplanes, recreational vessels, offshore platforms. I am a year ago in the hospital lay, I looked than I treated operate. All American or European. We annually spend about $ 350 billion. Rubles for the importation of foreign medical equipment. Although this money could invest in domestic development.

    - It will also be able to do defense industry?


    - Already doing! Moreover, on its own initiative. MRI and CT scans on the technical characteristics correspond to the best foreign models. X-ray equipment for a long time doing normal. Baby incubator for babies gestation collected in Yekaterinburg - even exported abroad. This does not mean that the military plants need to retrain completely civilian enterprises. It is necessary that the civil proceedings was the mobilization capacity and, if necessary, could produce military products. As a joke in the USSR - our pasta and cigarettes were 7.62 mm and a cigar - caliber 20 mm.

    - Previously, in each city were vocational schools, technical schools. Where is take pictures?


    - We are actively developing training centers that work closely with a particular company. For example, the Novosibirsk Aviation Plant. Chkalov, which we collect in the neighboring shops civil aircraft "Sukhoi Superjet" and multi-purpose fighter-bomber Su-34. Part of the company in Novosibirsk took a training center. Recruit kids, teach good scholarships pay, so that they are motivated for further work in the enterprise. In 1200 we gained during the year. In Komsomolsk Amur -na- have the same school. Many private factories also adopt this experience.

    - Production companies in the army appeared again.

    - This initiative, including board and the Military-Industrial Commission of the Russian Federation. They offered to make sure that all young employees of defense enterprises were in those parts that are in the profile associated with the work of the enterprise. If you work on the "Kurganmashzavod", then why do not you go to serve in the Airborne mechanic BMD-4M. You see how it works, you will pass "work experience."

    - In Syria, too many novelties of the domestic defense industry is being tested. There's "practice" someone passes?


    - Our troops in Syria , we sent all the most modern. And the means of communication, and optics, and small arms, and precision-guided munitions. In Syria, we are representatives of companies that are always present on the base, watching how technology is used. If necessary, immediately all repaired, restored.

    - Historically, the military-industrial complex of Ukraine has been closely linked with ours. What kind of relationship with him were?


    - All destroyed by the fault of Kiev. In late 2013, President Putin instructed me to go to Ukraine. Early December. Maidan has already started to make noise , but not yet burning riot police. I flew with the directors of our defense industry enterprises in Nikolaev, then - in Zaporizhia, Dnipropetrovsk, in the evening were in Kiev - in KB and the factory Antonov. You know how we have taken there? "Finally, rodnenky arrived." These grandparents to "Pivdenmash" literally crying. They really dreamed enter into a single co-operation, in which they used to be. After the coup, it was completely ruined and destroyed. Now Nicholas factory "Zarya-Mashproekt" owes us money. We paid for gas turbine units for the frigates. They have made them ... In the Ukrainian customs paid for equipment in Russia were not allowed. As a result, we have not returned the money, do not put units, but they are not to put them somewhere. A "Pivdenmash" to whom will it work? We had cooperation on missile "Zenit" with them. It was the first step for the super-heavy rocket "Energy". Now we stop missile tests of this type. Make your rocket in the same class, but this time without the Ukrainians. Where will they shop?

    - Something in the Crimea, we "inherited" left?


    - It seems that the "Messershmity" with the "Junkers" vybombili everything. A total of 28 military enterprises, decent in the past the industry. There are helicopter repair plant, a factory "Fiolent" Instrument in Simferopol. We immediately began to revive the defense industry enterprises of the Crimea. Now, for example, Zelenodolsk Shipyard, which is located in Tatarstan, helps the plant "Zaliv" in Kerch. And share with him orders. It gives not only salary, but also professionals, helping to return the workers. And the Kerch plant is now living, evolving. The same situation in the factory "Sea", to Sevastopol Marine Plant ... And considering the issue of restoration of civil passenger traffic Sochi - Novorossiysk - Crimea, and so on. Need operator-carrier, which calculates routes, economic feasibility, and all this organizing.

    On sanctions and import substitution


    - For us the Crimea, as is known, gained economic sanctions . They are nasty blow to the defense industry?


    - Any supply of foreign machine foreign intelligence services can be used with modern digital programming to remove the information that is made on these machines. And such cases are, and not only in Russia. Therefore, before the sanctions was clear that the brain must be on your machine. Today, machines are doing fine in Kovrov on Electromechanical Plant. A number of domestic companies produce high-quality equipment. The level of the Russian machine-tool by a large defense industry orders began to rise sharply.

    - And what we have to do import substitution?


    - First, we did a program on all products that came from the Ukraine. These were mainly old Soviet technology. We replace them with high modernization. The second program was the NATO and EU countries, when they imposed sanctions. We assumed that they will hit the machine tool. Well, that time launched its own production since 2012. We have time. As with the high-tech components - optics, electronics, microelectronics for space purposes ... We have launched production at the enterprises, and sanctions have not worked.

    On the space station and the moon


    - At the same time we still have a large amount of cooperation in space. Why is this segment kontrsanktsii not been introduced?


    - We are all carefully considered, analyzed, there were different voices: let us not supply engines RD-180. Prior to that, we have supplied NC-33 Americans. He began to develop in the USSR in the 70s. Accumulated stock on the lunar program of the Soviet Union - more than one hundred engines! Extremely efficient, superreliable ... The whole stock was stored for years at the Samara plant, somewhere behind stenochkoy. And in the heavy 90 remembered about them - the Americans are interested. Money raised from the sale of engines, went to salaries of workers, modernization of production. They still continue to buy these engines. We is also beneficial. We proceeded from pragmatism. Americans - too. The "Roscosmos" constant contact with NASA and ESA. We continued cooperation not only on the ISS, on the Martian program. Our equipment generally works normally.

    - How do you see the development of manned space flight?


    - The country needs to save and hard to prioritize. In space, they have a few. First - military tasks. Ensuring the safety of the country and from outer space. The second problem - the fundamental science and research. The third - economic task. Creating a large country a stable connection, the introduction of remote sensing, satellite navigation. What really makes money either, or holds the country together. As for science, it is necessary to clearly verify that you need to know. I met including Academician Green, we had an argument in the presence of management, "Roskosmos". He says: "It is necessary to fly to the moon." I defiantly took the skeptic's position: "Why?" He says: "We need to get regolith. He will give an understanding of the origin of the universe. " But regolith on Earth pours. Cosmic dust settles. Meteorites are the same. Obviously I asked him naive questions. I wanted him to convince me. But it is not convinced. A permanent research station on the moon - an interesting challenge. We need a technological breakthrough, we must create a super-heavy launch, orbital module in lunar orbit, the reusable lander. This is a serious problem that will be solved by us not only because we need a lunar station, but because we need greater technological capabilities in space.

    - But there is no concrete terms?


    - By 2030, we plan to solve this problem.

    Nobody has the right to spit in our memory"


    - More than a year ago at a meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Russian military-historical society has been raised about the poor condition of the museum on the site of executions in the village Zoe Kosmodemyanskoy Petrishcheva Ruza district, Moscow region. Of course, we have decided to raise funds for the restoration of the museum dedicated to the memory of the heroic women. Most recently, in Petrishcheva held commemorative events to mark the 75th anniversary of the death of Zoe Kosmodemyanskoy. War veterans and future defenders of the Motherland - cadets and cadets - honored the memory of the first woman - the Hero of the Soviet Union, who died in a combat mission. Zoe Kosmodemyanskaya tortured before being executed for a second did not change the debt and called for German soldiers to surrender. No wonder the Minister of Culture, who was present at the event, called Petrishcheva Russian Golgotha. I believe that nobody has the right to spit in our memory, in memory of the heroism of our veterans - the heroes of the Great Patriotic War.

    PROJECTS


    Arctic GOST and "nuclear battery"


    - From the sky - on the ground. The President has appointed you in charge of the State Commission for the development of the Arctic ... What are the priorities here?


    - We talk a lot about what our country is huge, it is necessary to use its transit opportunities. First of all, it is the Northern Sea Route. It consists of two arms. First - West, from Sabetta and further to Europe. And the second - the east, toward the Far East. If we talk about the year-round use, the open western shoulder is not a problem. On the east, there is, exceeds the thickness of the ice three meters. In Krylovskaya research center designed superledokol that will pave the road width required for wiring LNG - 300 thousand tons displacement. And he will break through ice up to 5 meters.

    - At the same time we have nuclear fleet is not new.


    - Yes, his life ends. It is necessary to create a new lean. Now we get three ships. The first is already launched at the Baltic Shipyard in St. Petersburg. There ends the construction of the "nuclear batteries" - floating power. It is from the sea is coming to coastal infrastructure, throws two cables. One - the power, the second - hot water. And any northern city we enliven. In 2019, I hope, will begin mass production of the IL-114 aircraft instead of the An-24 and An-74. He would go on ski landing gear. This is all the tools for entering the Arctic. I also propose to introduce Arctic GOST quality for enterprises operating in the interests of the North - whether it's clothes or snowmobile. What is tested in the Arctic zone, it will work anywhere. But the main issue is now in the other - supply of goods, commodities. For this purpose it is necessary to implement the project "Belkomur", this supply of goods from the Urals to Arkhangelsk. And then the ports are saturated with a large number of products that are easy to transfer to Europe. Then it becomes profitable. The second project - the Northern latitudinal railway, which brings to the Arctic ports large cargo. Now, these projects should be implemented. The budget is not enough. We need to find a partner within the concession.

    - China is able to connect?


    - Maybe. Because Chinese goods may go through Russia, it is much cheaper than in Africa and Somali pirates. This project I have presented to my colleague on the Russian-Chinese intergovernmental commission - the vice-premier of China Comrade Wang Yan.

    MEANWHILE

    "I hope relations with Moldova will warm up"


    - There were times when even your aircraft into the airspace of Moldova would not start. But you are the president's special envoy on Transnistria. Following the recent elections in Chisinau and Tiraspol, there is hope for some progress in the solution of the Transnistrian conflict?

    - Transnistria is in serious isolation. They under any possible sanctions. Ukraine has blocked all border. Constant provocations on the border. Moldova also intercepted Russian officials in Chisinau, journalists unfolded, our peacekeepers. It was decided to recruit employees for our institutions and structures of the Russian citizens who live in Transnistria. Now the situation is a little bit unlock with the new government of Philip and after the election of the new president of Moldova Dodon. We are waiting for him in Moscow. I hope that relations with Moldova will warm up. While they may not grow warmer through, while Moldova remains within the framework of the association with the EU. In Moldova, there are politicians such as Minister-Russophobe Salaru who continue to escalate the situation around Transnistria. To them I would like to say: the path runs through the civil war, in order to "hang out nicely without visas" in Europe, is not stupid and criminal. Correct and patriotic Moldovan government would return to economic union with Russia and other countries, where traditional markets for Moldovan products. Now in general there are no negotiations on the status of Transnistria.
