    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 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.

    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.

    Interview Dmitry Rogozin: I do not know how you can talk with Russia to a position of strength

    http://militarynews.ru/story.asp?rid=2&nid=443583



    Deputy Prime Minister, chairman of the board of the Military-Industrial Commission, Dmitry Rogozin, told the Observer "Interfax" Vyacheslav Terekhov and Paul Koryashkinu state program of armaments, armored holding "Rostec", testing new machines, and answered the question, whether the plants are ready to build aircraft carriers.


    - Dmitry O., when it is finally agreed upon and approved by the state program of armaments to 2025?


    - The program must be formed by July 1 and finally approved at the end of 2017. On January 1, 2018 to begin its implementation.

    - We will build a new aircraft carrier for the Navy?


    - This question is not for the military-industrial complex. We can build everything for the competence that we have. If a decision is made about the need to equip our Navy aircraft carrier, it will be implemented.

    We have an understanding of how to do it. There aviation technology, which can be equipped with a ship strike weapons. From a technical and production point of view, all this is achievable, no doubt.

    Preliminary draft, the technical sketch is.

    - Assumes whether a new program is building the heavy missile cruisers or will upgrade the old ones?

    - They're not old. It is absolutely fit for combat equipment.

    We do not consider it shameful to use combat platforms that have been created in the past. These cruisers are subject to thorough modernization. They can last for long service for so many years. They have a new shock weapons can be installed, the latest helicopters. We have excellent helicopters - the Ka-52K as a coaxial screw system, it allows you to withstand any wind loads.

    Some experts are of the "Diwali forces" mistakenly think that the most important thing - support. A really important is what the armed cruiser. Heavy cruisers Soviet projects have only one drawback - they are visible. They are not used modern stealth technology. US uses some of its planes for decades - rake stuffing and put all new. All this flies serves. And this is a normal prudent approach.

    - Dmitry O., "Rostec" transferred serious defense assets - "Uralvagonzavod" military division "KTZ". What for?

    - The first task - creating armored holding. You know, NATO military sometimes jokingly referred to as his armored units "heavy metal forces", if used in the lexicon, we plan to create a "heavy metal" holding. Entering "Uralvagonzavod" in "Rostec" perimeter combine production of combat and combat platforms of tower modules. This will solve a lot of problems - from engineering and design to finance. Doing this within one organization is cheaper and easier.

    The second challenge - to improve the difficult financial situation "Uralvagonzavod".

    As for the state defense order "Uralvagonzavod", this is no problem, all developed and civil proceedings have subsided due to the crisis. former management calculations on bulk purchases of cars were not justified. On the "Uralvagonzavod" began to experience problems, including social - part-time, part-time working week.

    In "Rostec", which operates large finances, the ability to support the "Uralvagonzavod" is. Our economic forecasts show that by this kind of cooperation, "Uralvagonzavod" is already in the can greatly improve their financial situation during 2017. It must be a bit of support. But loans that need to pay large interest. Looking for domestic funds, and they can be produced in "Rostec".

    We expect that the appearance of this holding is finally formed through the integration of back and "Kurgan", which produces infantry fighting vehicles and other defense plants "KTZ". It is logical to link it all, add "fresh blood" - the design and management. Who started the corporate procedures. A new CEO, he will form his own team.

    The first stage is integrated into "Rostec". In the next stage, we are waiting for from the CEO "Uralvagonzavod" plan for a big Holding: as the work will be built, what economic incentives will be applied to new managers. All this will be heard at the board meeting of the Military-Industrial Commission, and approved by, or, on the contrary, has been rejected.

    - How do you assess the rearmament of the army and navy?


    - Qualitative change achieved. There are kinds and sorts of the Armed Forces, we are re-equipping first. For example, in strategic nuclear forces must re-create a 100%.

    Pride and love of our military - is a unique strategic missile "Voivod", in the West they call it "Satan", and for good reason. This is a very powerful rocket, carrying a huge nuclear potential retaliation. This missile has been extremely successful in terms of resources. We were able to fully ensure the extension of its operation. Earlier on this rocket, we depend on Ukraine. Now everything is fully guaranteed by the Russian enterprises.

    Soon the arms will also receive a new intercontinental ballistic missile "Sarmat" with the perfect means of overcoming current and future missile defense systems. With the "Sarmatia" and we fit into the plan to replace our unique missiles "Voivod", and in agreement with the Americans on the reduction of strategic offensive arms on the number of units and the media.

    The second type of missiles, which provide strategic deterrence - solid. This development of the Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology and Labour Hero of Russia General Yuri Semenovich Solomon designer. This silo-based and mobile missiles - "Topol", "Yarsy". This sea-based missiles - "Mace", which are equipped with nuclear submarines of the fourth generation of the boat project "Northwind".

    Come into service intercontinental ballistic missiles and long-term, which we do not speak, they will be created in the new armament program, will allow to update the strategic nuclear potential of Russia by 100%. This is the holy of holies. We can not risk it. It is a guarantee of our security, our sovereignty.

    - How is the work on the Tu-160m2?


    - If we talk about videoconferencing, carried a lot of work to restore the fleet of strategic bombers - Tu-160, Tu-95.

    For me it is a personal story. I have a picture of flying over Moscow Tu-160 and a photocopy of the document on the delivery of the second phase of its engine - NC-32, chairman of the commission - Rogozin Oleg K., my father. In 1987, he received a new engine as the head of the commission.

    We have restored the production of these engines make a new series. NC-32 - a unique engine. We use new design and engineering solutions. The design basis of the engine ahead of its time, it will be used in the future.

    The plane we rearm and from the point of view of modern missile systems, and in terms of the power plant, automated control systems and communications. It is recognizable image of an aircraft with a deep modernization.

    We move on. We create and future aircraft systems, including, for the strategic nuclear forces. We're moving. This not only plans, but in practical work. Meeting the college MIC gradually transformed into the beginning of the development work and production.

    - How is the development of a new air defense system S-500?


    - First, the C-400, C-400 is now the new missile, then C-500. This is our work plans are implemented. It means protecting our cities from attack. From previous air defense systems S-500 will be different actions range and efficiency defeat all the aerodynamic and ballistic targets.

    - How do you like the recent statement by the US Secretary of Defense announced plans to speak to Russia with a position of strength?


    - It surprised me. I know James Mattis, visited his home in Norfolk, where he worked Permanent Representative of Russia to NATO. It is a lively, interesting, sociable people.

    Perhaps, for the time when he was not served at the Pentagon, he is a little behind, unaware of serious scientific, technical and industrial progress of Russian military-industrial complex. Maybe he lives some illusions about the "old rusty Russian missiles." When he will understand, such statements are unlikely to be possible.

    If we talk about the logistics of the country's security and defense, I declare that I do not see how you can talk with Russia to a position of strength. We have themselves have the power. We have restored this power, the power of the country. With us, it is necessary to negotiate.

    Russia is the only country in the world that can contain any aggressor - the most heavily armed leader of the Western world, together with its surroundings. Keep the anywhere in the world. It is already a fact.

    - What the industry is ready to offer land forces, special operations forces?

    - We understand that the real military conflict - it is local conflicts.

    We have a compact army. We must be in constant readiness forces, owning unique weapons. These forces need to have the highest mobility, precision weapons. For aviation, which secretly transfer them to any place. To ensure that our military had the means of detection of the enemy, suppressing its means of aggression.

    I'm talking about robotic complexes. The task - to bring our man from the Gaza defeat to a safe distance, but so that he himself had seen the enemy, and was able to hit it. Our goal - to turn the soldier in the operator's robotic system that can fulfill any combat missions.

    - You mean robot "Ally"?

    - We have a lot of development. "Nerehta", for example.

    My father headed the USSR Ministry of Defense Advanced Research, was the first deputy head of armaments. He foresaw that the war will win the "four-eyes", sitting at a screen and controlling robotic systems.

    Recently I was on a training ground near Moscow TSNIITOCHMASH in Nizhny Tagil in the range "Uralvagonzavod". I was shown the result of our Robotics Center, which was created at the factory Kovrov Degtyarev. Conditional "bespectacled" sits a finger on the touch screen controls the objectives that must be struck, and determines the order of destruction of these goals. Robot wakes up in an ambush, identifies the target if he realizes that he is the enemy, gives an indication nominated killer robots that turn enemy column in chips. In this case the operator itself is at such a distance that no funds can not defeat the enemy did not only reach, but also to understand where all of this is controlled. Secure communication channels, they do not intercept.

    This scientific and technological progress, the development of robotic systems. But there are certain risks. No wonder they struck the minds of the creators of art, which created all kinds of movies about "robocops" and "Terminator". In all of these fantasies is a certain truth. Machines are becoming more and more complex intelligent. Man in no case should not pass the car right on the final decision. Above that think our general designers, all of our engineers. Questions of life and, God forbid, the death must be determined by a person on the basis of the higher purpose of protecting, defense of the civilian population, the country and its sovereignty. Otherwise, you can get carried away too.

    We already see today on television footage, which is actively used robotics, armed with automatic weapons. Progress will be moving in this direction - to the maximum development of artificial intelligence, robotic means, including unmanned. The war of the future will be very tech, very high precision and very remote.

    - When completed testing machines for combat equipment "Warrior"? Who will win - the AK-12 "Kalashnikov" or Degtyarevskaya AEK-971?


    - Do not be such - one wins, the other loses. We will be sure to develop both design schools - and the Degtyarev plant, and "Kalashnikov".

    Machines will doispytany and possibly as early as this year, decisions will be made. The weapon is being tested for years, then to serve decades.

    Machines are different. A cheaper machine will be, relatively speaking, a soldier. We need a simple, cheap, efficient machine. In this regard, there is every chance that it will be an AK-12. But with all the "seasoning" - Picatinny rail, telescopic buttstock, and above all - internal design, which allows for automatic shooting "did not turn up your nose."

    In AK-12 military personnel according to their preferences, the individual characteristics of a body, the specifics of the tasks will be able to use night, daytime, thermal imaging optics, laser range finder. Someone left-handed - the machine can be cocked his left hand. This is extremely important from an ergonomic point of view questions. And they will be implemented on the AK-12.

    AEK-971 - a more complex machine with many features, it is a high-precision, different cartridges can be used. It also can be useful - not an ordinary army units and special purpose forces, the National Guard, Border Guards.

    We have a different form, solve a variety of problems. The more weapons, the greater the variety of uses for useful tips and skirts, the better.

    Sorry for the slang, but the weapons can also be economy and business class. For special units for officers' departments - "Alpha", "Vympel" - of course, the weapon should be a higher level than the usual soldier's gun.

    - There are some interesting developments in the field of ammunition for small arms?


    - Interesting developments are many. For example, the first time we have created and are already beginning to produce ammunition for small arms, which ignites the diesel. Neither rifle ammunition in the world, it was not able to.

    Our simple soldier from automatic weapons can stop an enemy vehicle that runs on diesel fuel. This success of the revolution in this business.

    We are working on the new powder, more energy, even burning. They will create maximum momentum in the trunk to increase shot power. This is a task that will be delivered to the holding company, which is now thought "Rostec" holding special chemistry.

    - Are you generally satisfied with the way relations are based defense enterprises with the Ministry of Defence?

    - In 2012, when I came to work in this office, we have the relationship between the customer and industry characterized by constant price wars. It came to the fact that the President had to intervene, for example, in matters of pricing in the construction of nuclear submarines.

    Then the whole problem was resolved - was found the pricing formula, the laws adopted, amended legislation in the area of ​​pricing, distributed responsibilities, roles of various structures.

    For example, the Ministry of Industry knows the industry, he has to understand how a price, to determine, together with the cost of production enterprises. Someone has to act as auditor of the prices, to conduct an independent audit. Who is doing the FAS. If there is still no agreement on the price, is the last instance - the board of the Military-Industrial Commission. It authorized the president to act as the final arbiter.

    Through the establishment of the regulatory framework, the involvement of responsible people in charge of a large business, when everyone understands their role and is already established pricing formula, it was possible to minimize the subjective factors and enter the routine process in a good way.

    We have introduced, including legislation, different prices. How can I by signing a fixed price contract for the creation of an entirely new nuclear submarine? You do not know how many months or days, hours, minutes, require general designer, to form a technical appearance of a completely new product, as necessary investment in new technologies, new structural material, how much time will be spent on the purchase of the necessary equipment to start the entire process chain.

    The fixed price is good when the product exists in the public domain. But when it comes to something completely new, or, conversely, to repair put sophisticated weapons system, and the end is not clear that it needs to be replaced or replaced with modernization, it or the estimated price, or the price, which is established on the basis of operation.

    Our military-industrial complex - it is not a shop, which came in and said post from the top shelf, asked why dusty goods, why not tesemochki box.

    For example, the Pentagon has no limitations, it works without the sanctions pressure, the Americans themselves these sanctions initiated against us. They quoted the "shop" exists in the face of a huge US military-industrial complex, which operates without restrictions in the supply of components, including from all over the world.

    In order to satisfy the interests of our Russian customers, the industry requires a more complex work. We have a whole program of import substitution that we can not bring to our country, the production localization program, there is also a strong social aspect - it is necessary to give our people jobs. It is necessary to inculcate the culture of modern production, pay a decent salary to get through this financial incentive to attract like a magnet of the best specialists in the country and from abroad, for example, from the Ukraine, where they are not wanted.

    This is a very complex, high-tech production of high-tech products. I stress, production itself must be high-tech. to do something new on the machines of the 20th century can be, but it would be extremely costly piece-work, which will cost so much money that there simply are not enough physically.

    It is for this reason that the state program of armaments is accompanied by parallel programs re industry. Carefully Ministry of Industry, Roscosmos and Rosatom to develop and submit to the board of MIC suggestions that they need to re-equip, which plants need to be rebuilt.

    Recently, we showed the prime minister, and before that the president, two of our new plant "EKO Concern" Almaz-Antey "in Nizhny Novgorod and Kirov. Everything is new, including the production of culture.

    - These plants Russian equipment completely?

    - I would like it to be that way. Unfortunately, the machine tool industry in the 90 years was destroyed in the first place. And now the industry has to rebuild from the ruins.

    When we began to buy machines for the upgrading of enterprises, we understand that our scope is required to alert the adversary, and he will find an excuse for imposing sanctions. He found - Crimean occasion.

    If we just bought all the machines in large quantities abroad, we have for decades been put in bondage - machines require maintenance, repairs and modernization. So we started to make offset agreements with exporters of equipment: if you want us to sell 50 machines, okay, but, starting from the tenth of the machine, they should be collected, and the thirtieth - produced in our country. First, something as simple as a 5% percent of localization, then 10%, then 20, 25, 50, then the localization should be 100%.

    The interest of manufacturers of machine tools in deliveries in Russia, despite the sanctions, has led to the fact that due to this offset we were able to start the recovery of machine production.

    We expect that in the spring of Prime Minister will visit Ulyanovsk corresponding production, and there discuss in detail the issues of the industry recovery.

    This process goes on. Not to say that everything works magically. But by attracting private capital government spending could be reduced.

    In the field of production of machines into Russia, a lot of private traders. This enterprise in Ulyanovsk, excellent production machines in Kovrov, much is being done in Tula. People from the business entered the MIC Council on Public-Private Partnerships. They are involved in a common cause, they are aware of our needs, they are counting on a long order, arrange their rate of return. We obgovarivayem rules of the game, and off we go, there is success.

    In general, I am proud of the fact that the country's leadership has invited me and our team to participate in the new industrialization of Russia, to use their knowledge, experience and energy to that, from what for decades to come will depend on the security and economic prosperity of the motherland.

    Not all answers are clear but the point that they are putting all efforts into nuclear re armament is clear. So a lot of resources are being poured into this new heavy ICBM and they localized spare parts for the SS-18. They are keeping tight lipped though on this new ICBM and S-500. Rightfully so. Not sure though on his S-400/500 statement though.

    In AK-12 military personnel according to their preferences, the individual characteristics of a body, the specifics of the tasks will be able to use night, daytime, thermal imaging optics, laser range finder. Someone left-handed - the machine can be cocked his left hand. This is extremely important from an ergonomic point of view questions. And they will be implemented on the AK-12. AEK-971 - a more complex machine with many features, it is a high-precision, different cartridges can be used. It also can be useful - not an ordinary army units and special purpose forces, the National Guard, Border Guards. wrote:

    From a complexity perspective, the Avtomat that has issues is the AK-12. And it doesn't have issues only on use, it has issues on production as well. With target areas being still problematic.
    Just stop this charade, let the MA develop and take it instead of the two choices that are in contest now. It also offers a great design solution as every length and caliber are set out. Currently two prospective weapons are there. MA and SVK. Both employ the same action, and they are already set in different calibres. SVK in 2 and MA should be perfectly able to hand the two others.
