    100th anniversary of the Red Army in Ivangorod

    Interesting photo-report from the festive event dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the creation of the Red Army, which took place on February 22, 2018 in Ivangorod (Leningrad region), near the border with Estonia (and near Narva), and included a very significant display of military equipment. It is worth noting the presence of the T-80BV tanks at the event.

    MOSCOW, March 7 (Itar-Tass) - RIA Novosti. The level of equipping the Army with modern weapons has tripled since 2012, said Colonel-General Oleg Salyukov, Commander-in-Chief of the Land Forces of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

    "Over the past five years, more than 10,000 units of modern weapons, military and special equipment have been delivered to the military in the framework of the current State Armament Program (GPV 2020), which has made it possible to increase the level of equipment with modern weapons three times, 45% (44.7% from 15%), "Salyukov said in an interview with the newspaper of the Russian Armed Forces Krasnaya Zvezda , published on the website of the newspaper on Wednesday.

    According to him, the task set by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, to bring the share of modern weapons, is fulfilled (by the end of 2015 - at least 30%, by the end of 2020 - up to 70%).

    Salyukov stressed that at present the Army is fully equipped with all the necessary weapons and military equipment.
    "The systematically complete re-equipment of military vehicles with modern weapons models is being continued within the framework of the implementation of the GPU." According to the state defense order, modern samples are being purchased, as well as modernization of existing weapons, priority is given to the complete supply of weapons, reconnaissance, control, maintenance, maintenance, repair and training, as well as the necessary stock of missiles and ammunition, "the commander-in-chief said.

    "The experience of purchasing brigade complete sets of the main armament of the Iskander missile brigades, brigade and divisional sets of anti-aircraft defense systems - the S-300B4 anti-aircraft missile system, Buk-MZ and Tor-M2 air defense systems, and also the complete deliveries the battalion level of other weapons.This approach allows the full formation of units and units that are able in the shortest time to begin to perform tasks for the intended, "- explained Salyukov.

    He added that modern modernized self-propelled howitzers 2S19M2 Msta-SM, fully integrated into a single tactical control system, and modernized Tornado-G medium-range rocket launchers with the capability of automatic targeting of a combat vehicle on the target .

    Russia’s Ministry of Defense has published a video showing brand new tank tactics filmed at the Pogonovo proving grounds.

    An all new tactic was rehearsed during military drills at Pogonovo proving grounds near the Russian city of Voronezh, in which battalion and division commanders of the Western Military district took part.

    "The special feature of this military exercise was a unique method of hitting targets at distances of up to 12 kilometers," said Timur Trubienko, army vice commander.

    The new tactics involve tanks posing as artillery and shooting from behind cover. Usually, tanks shoot only within their range of sight — but this time, they received intel from Orlan drones.

    Did someone see this aritcle in National Idiots... ur, Interest about the best armies in 2030?
    Best five armies: Russia, China, India, France (Yes, the frog eaters. Their whole army has the size of one russian Division!) and the best of them all... wait for it, you guessed it, Amiland!!!!

    I mean... the russian army is superior in:

    Tanks
    Artillery
    Air defence
    EW
    NBC troops
    Engineer troops
    Logistics

    How could someone than claim the Ami Army is better? Cooler sun glasses or what?

    Well they can claim anything they like... how can you prove them wrong?

    Of course the secret is in the title of the website... it is in their national interests to be the best... that way they can bludgeon others into submission and maintain their economic and political position.

    Well, by including France they sort of discredit the whole list.

    At the end of the day it is NATO's nuclear weapons that make it a threat. It's conventional capability is grossly exaggerated based
    on propaganda adventures like the Iraq war. I fully expect NATO to use nuclear weapons first in any war on Russia since they know
    that there is no way they could win a conventional war against it. NATO is also composed of sheep who believe that it was the
    western alliance, i.e. the USA, that won the war against Nazi Germany. Little details like the fact that 80% of Germany's resources
    were spent on the eastern (i.e. Soviet) front are systematically ignored. The only war that the USA has won against a worthy opponent
    was the war against Japan and it had to use nuclear weapons to do it.

    Using nucelar weapons is NATO tactic from the beginning.

    The fight against Japan was mostly air and sea battles. At the end of the war Russia was fighting more Japanese (in China) than Amiland had ever met in their battles.

    Indeed. Soviet forces routed the 1 million strong Japanese Kwantung army. The USA had Iwo Jima and other such ground battles.

    As for "worthy", I am comparing to Iraq in 1990. And the USA was not all that back in 1940s. They had to adapt to fight Japan
    and did not just steam roll it.

    The point being that the US took forever to make gains against the Jap army wheras the Soviets just rolled over it.

    National Idiots are saints in comparison to sites like FoxtortAlpha. Just read this horseshit article about new Russian nuclear-powered cruise-missile from butthurt US veterans.
    https://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com/putins-nuclear-powered-cruise-missile-is-a-rehash-of-an-1823588286

    Also in YouTube there are some shitty military dick-measuring videos are been made by NATO fanboy channels like Binkov's Battleground. Even though in all of his dick-measuring videos Western military always wins, people still fall for his cherry picked stuffs & praise him for being neutral lol.

    Why do they do it?

    It is the full kool aide programme... we are powerful and when we are undemocratic and force other people to do what suits us it is because it is better for everyone for us to be in charge... imagine if China was in charge... or Russia...

    Ignoring the fact that they are not trying to take charge they are just trying to get equality with the west... the west does not share power however.

    If they had a hard critical look at their own actions... how would they be able to sleep at night?

    They can't change it... they have no power within the system they support.

    Diplomacy is too slow and requires concessions... violence is faster and easier when you spent all this time and money building up enormous forces... read my signature...

    Aside from a small minority of rational thinkers who do not follow the fake stream media like sheep, the "west" (aka NATO) is
    composed of masses of brainwashed people who are raised from birth on a diet of national chauvinism. Even if it has PC characteristics
    it is still a nationalist variant based on "good us" vs. "bad them". This black and white image of the world is drilled into the heads
    of NATO citizens (aka 1984 proles) day in and day out in every relevant topic. Humans have mental weaknesses and are prone to
    training like Pavlov's dogs. Aside from the few de facto dissidents that think from themselves, the majority reacts spasmodically
    via conditioned reflexes.

    This training, makes NATO a menace to humanity. NATO is built on European colonial powers who still think that they have some
    sort of "white man's burden" to "civilize the savages". Of course this includes Russia, which was never really part of the European
    club. The club resented Russia for having access to vast resources which they had to sail around the world to grab themselves.
    You can see the current anti-Russian mentality mirrored back in the 1880s and earlier. They even produce the same retarded
    octopus caricature. Even if PC no longer lofts "whites" onto pedestals, the underlying template is there.

    This exceptionalism syndrome is related to colonial brutality. It allows the masses who benefit from colonial rape to feel good about
    themselves and have no doubts about their own virtue and good moral standing. This delusion is very grotesque. If you think
    I am being extreme, consider the Skripal hoax and the hate hysteria against Russia. No proof is ever needed, just "proof by accusation".

    You people do realise that Eropeans are just barbarians pretending to be civilized just look back to the days of the Roman Empire the society wich they copied in order to advance past the tribal stage.

    And they could never abandon thier violent tribal tendencies Europeans only stopped killing themselvs over menial things once the Soviet Union showed up and it was band together or die.

    The range given for Rockets is wrong...

    122mm Grad rockets reach about 40km, as do the 220mm Uragan... though with much heavier payloads, while the 300mm Smerch rockets of original production reached the 70km mentioned (and weighed 800kg) while the later models weighed 815kgs and could reach 90km.

    There is plenty of talk about wings being used to extend range to 120-150km and beyond...
