    Thankfully not, I only lurk there...the amount of censorship on MP.net is astounding, in stark contrast on the russiadefence forum, it's incredibly difficult to get banned. I've seen members on this forum, members of the sinodefense forum, the Pakistani defense forum defense.pk, and other members of other defense forums say that MP.net moderators abuse their powers like no one else, and they attempt to censor any and all Anti-NATO/US rhetoric...I'm American, who's step-father served guard duty on NATO Missile bases in Europe, to attempt to censor all criticism of the Pentagon/NATO is totally unacceptable.

    Yeah, the mods there can be pretty heavy handed at times, and I noticed they often have more patience for some of the more "established" members, giving them what basically amounts to a slap on the wrist for offenses that would probably get a newbie permabanned. Haven't noticed any similar behavior from the mods here, so that's a good thing. Smile

    Still though, there's few places as good for sharing content on the Russian armed forces as the Russian Photos thread. That thread is the reason I joined and pretty much the only reason I continue to post there.

    Russia’s arms program to enhance security forces’ combat capability — Putin

    http://en.itar-tass.com/russia/748940


    MOSCOW, September 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s new armaments program for 2016-2025 is a special-purpose mechanism designed to enhance the combat capability of its Armed Forces, President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday.
    Russia began drafting the program in 2013. “It will be the fifth largest state program of the sort in the past 20 years,” the president said.

    The program will also help to overcome the crisis in the Russian defence industry and spur its growth, he added.

    Putin said large amounts of money had been invested in the program, signifying an almost 10-fold increase from 2.5 trillion roubles ($67 billion) in 2001-2010 to over 20 trillion roubles ($540 billion) in 2011-2020. And an additional 3 billion roubles ($81 million) have been earmarked specifically for the development of the defense industry.

    Such concentration of resources was necessary in order to rearm the Army and the Navy within a short period of time, upgrade defense enterprises and make up for the setbacks suffered in the previous years when the defence industry was struggling to survive.

    Nice although Russia was technically late to the AESA party (thanks to the Yelstin-90's) but with all things said and done post-2016 Russia may very well have more AESA arrays in active service (throughout all military branches) than any other major military power especially considering that the Armata platform will have AESA X-Band radar. Victory Day Parade 2015 will be very interesting to say the least!

    It is clearly BTR based, and also has an AESA array and top mounted optics sensors... however if you look to the rear of the vehicle it has a ramp launcher for a UAV, which suggests it is some sort of recon vehicle, which might include radar and optics observation and also remote monitoring using a drone.


    BTW nice vid Zg18... If you go down to the woods today you really are sure of a big surprise... my vote. Wink

    Not sure where to post but interesting SAP 2015-2020 gets almost the same level of funding as SAP 2020

    Rogozin: amount of new state armaments program is comparable to the current


    MOSCOW, Sept. 11 - RIA Novosti. Scope of state financing of new armament program of the Russian Federation on the 2016-2025 years will be comparable to the funding of the current program, said on Thursday, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.


    The volume of the current state program to 2020 is 20 trillion rubles.


    "They (volumes) are comparable," - Rogozin said on Thursday on the TV channel "Russia 24".

    Things wont get cheaper, but hopefully performance per rouble should dramatically increase.

    It will be interesting to see what a modern 21st century Army designed and used for defence will actually look like... the world has never seen that before.

    Lol, the (current) world has never seen a "modern next century", and it will never if you get what I mean.

    In the Russian army will reduce the number of types of weapons and military equipment

    http://itar-tass.com/politika/1448048


    KRASNOARMEYSK / Moscow region /, 17 September.  / ITAR-TASS /.  Russia's Defense Ministry will reduce the number of types of weapons and military equipment, which is used by the Russian army.



    Such changes are planned in the new state armaments program for 2016-2025 years, told Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov.


    "The main directions will be in a fairly sharp decrease in facial features of weapons and military equipment. We optimize type. Series (weapons and equipment) is already defined," - said Borisov.


    According to him, the state program will identify specific targets and a half years based on the capabilities of industry and science.  The deputy head of the Ministry of Defense said that the military wants to "guide the industry on the issue of unification of different solutions."  "This is a bus-modular design with maximum harmonization and reduction of the range of products used," - said the deputy minister.


    Reducing the number of types of weapons and military equipment should reduce the cost of its repair and maintenance, as well as reduce the cost of training the military.




    The state defense order will not be sequestered




    Borisov also noted that the state defense order for the years 2015-2017 will not be subject to sequestration.  "No seizures, severe decrease in the volume is not. Draft budget provides almost passport details," - he said.

    At the same time, the deputy minister said, it does not mean that the Defense Ministry does not redistribute volumes within the program itself.


    "So far, thank God, the supreme commander of the efforts of our government and the three-year plan for 2015-2017 years is a very close approximation to the passport data state armaments program 2020, which is the key dynamic re our troops on the modern and advanced weapons and military equipment," - Borisov said.


    He also noted that the program of import substitution is not fundamentally affected the state program of armaments and defense procurement.

    The Israeli army is pretty much built for defense.

    For all their international law abuses; their entire mobilization system, armoured forces, etc... are all designed for point-defense or occupation of small amounts of territory; they would be extremely hard-pressed to actually launch an offensive well into enemy territory past a small distance from Israel.

    Its going to be interesting at next Victory Parade

    He recalled that on 9 May 2015 at the Victory Parade for the first time will show the main tank "Armata", but not only him. "We will show a whole range of equipment, brand new tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers, self-propelled guns, automotive special equipment," - he said on the radio "Echo of Moscow"

    Victory Parade in 2015 will take place about 100 samples of the latest technology

    I'm pretty sure that they will not allow to take photos of them from specific angles like always and let's see how the model with the GSh-23-6 turns out. I'm really looking forward to that model and the IFV's based on Armata. If Armata turns out to be as they say, then russian new tanks,ifvs,apcs would catapulte again all at the same time on place nr1 of their catagory.

    This video of Бастион-П ,shooting from this concealed fire position, is very likely related to the purpose of testing, in a full scale live exercise involving all kind of enemy high-end air and space based ISR platforms ,the the new radar absorbign composites that has claimed capability to reduce reradiated energy (ostensibly in the X and S band) of 15-20 times.


    http://vpk.name/news/118128_radiolokacionnaya_zametnost_puskovyih_ustanovok_beregovogo_kompleksa_bastion_snizhena_v_1520_raz_zayavlyaet_razrabotchik.html


    Similar concealed high-clutter fire positions ,in facts, not only render airborne and satellite IR/optical detection dramatically difficult to execute (in particualr if paired with the use of purposely designed decoy launchers and command posts) except at very close range ,but also reduce furtherly the range of detection of SAR type radars -representing at today the unique long range tracking mean for airborne vehicles of ground vehicles-.

    The effect of the claimed reradiated radar energy's absorbtion performance of the new composites would force also aircraft equiped with future improved SAR equipment to come within engagement range of even medium range air defense systems in order to get a chance to detect the position of the mobile launchers.


    The benefits of the employment of similar composites in the construction of others important missile launchers appear obious.

    Interesting Interview ..with Dmitri Rogozin about Russia army up to 2020.



    The most interesting part is that they plan to fully modernize the nuclear forces by 100% by 2020.
    and also Rogozin hint about weapons Russia have ,that cannot talk but that will surprise their enemies.
    Can't wait to know about what it is he is talking about sounds like an interesting weapon. .. Very Happy
