    On August 16, the Russian Defense Ministry signed 11 state contracts with manufacturers of weapons and ammunition at the Army-2023 forum. One of the most significant was the agreement for the supply of the latest Malva wheeled howitzers. They will serve in the newly formed artillery brigade of the Airborne Forces, which is located in the NVO zone. According to experts, these systems will significantly increase the firepower of paratroopers. Other novelties presented at Army-2023 include the Drok self-propelled mortar, VKPO 3.0 equipment and new types of small arms.

    Long-awaited contracts

    At the military-technical forum "Army-2023" on August 16, the Russian Defense Ministry signed 11 state contracts worth more than 400 billion rubles, said Lieutenant General Anatoly Gulyaev, head of the Main Armaments Directorate of the Russian Armed Forces.

    According to him, as a result of their implementation, the RF Armed Forces will receive more than 2.5 thousand new types of weapons, military and special equipment and over 1.8 million units of weapons of destruction.

    Among the signed documents are state contracts for the manufacture and supply of the MRTK-R Uran-6 multifunctional robotic demining complex, Tor-M2 anti-aircraft missile systems, 300-mm shells for the Tornado-S multiple launch rocket system. One of the most anticipated was the contract for the supply of the latest Malva wheeled howitzers. During the days of the forum, these systems were shown to the general public for the first time.

    As sources in the military department told Izvestia, the Malva howitzers will go into service with artillery brigades, including the newly formed artillery brigade of the Airborne Forces. In addition to the installations themselves, the troops will also receive special vehicles to ensure the operation of these self-propelled guns. Including transport-loading and fire control systems, the interlocutors said.

    On August 2, the commander of the Airborne Forces, Colonel-General Mikhail Teplinskiy, announced the formation of a new airborne brigade. In his congratulations on the eve of the Day of the Airborne Forces, he noted that during a special military operation, an artillery brigade of this type of troops was formed, which is already in the combat zone.

    Shown for the first time

    Wheeled self-propelled howitzer "Malva" caliber 152 mm will increase the mobility of heavy artillery and the speed of leaving positions, which is very important today in the face of active counter-battery work of the enemy.
    The 152-mm 2A64 gun that the Malva is equipped with is similar to that used on the Msta-S tracked gun mount, which has proven itself in battles. "Malva" is designed to destroy a variety of targets - from infantry and equipment on the front line to tactical nuclear attack weapons in the near rear at a distance of up to 24 km.

    The mobility of the howitzer will be provided by the all-terrain chassis of the Bryansk Automobile Plant BAZ-6010-027 with an 8x8 wheel arrangement. The open installation of the "Malva" without additional armor protection or a turret made it possible to lighten the car. With an ammunition load of 30 shells, its weight is 32 tons. This is a quarter lighter than the tracked Msta-S with the same gun.

    At the forum, you will be able to see equipment created taking into account the experience of a special military operation.

    “The wheel formula means greater speed, greater mobility compared to tracked vehicles,” military expert Vasily Dandykin told Izvestia. - There are innovations related to the firing range. Tracked vehicles are now few in the West. They move well on the roads. High mobility means that you can quickly leave firing positions. The rate of fire of the "Malva" has been increased, as far as I know. That is, this weapon is just for paratroopers. It is less heavy, unlike tracked self-propelled guns. The Airborne Forces had the most important guns "Octopus", "Nona", and now there will be a larger caliber, it's still 152 mm.

    Another model that is expected at the front line is the 82-mm Drok self-propelled mortar based on the Typhoon-VDV mine-protected armored vehicle. The machine can act both as a self-propelled gun, firing from a mortar installed in the tower, and as a means of transportation: the barrel can be easily removed and installed on a bipod and a plate.

    The new 82-millimeter mortar, in addition to conventional ammunition, can also use new elongated mines with an enhanced charge. This allows you to fire "in a cannon" - direct fire as an assault gun. Such a universal front-line self-propelled guns can immediately replace several options for installing various old models of guns on common platforms that are popular among the troops.

    Equipment

    The weapons and equipment of military personnel are changing. Following the summer set of the VKPO 3.0 uniform, the supply of demi-season and winter layers of the new uniform is being prepared for the troops. It is also expected to supply a new modular set of individual body armor. Its main advantage was the increased area of ​​​​anti-fragmentation protection, which is important for the conditions of the Northern Military District, where artillery remains the main means of destruction.

    Last week, the president of the Kalashnikov concern, Alan Lushnikov, told Izvestia in an interview that VKPO 3.0 is the result of several years of hard work by the company.

    “We originally created it for the needs of special forces,” he said. “Later, when a serious need arose and the volume of purchased uniforms increased sharply, we offered our developments to the Ministry of Defense. Now there is a military exploitation of a large serial batch, it shows a good result. Positive reviews prevail. In our kit, users primarily like ergonomics, quality of material and tailoring. We work very closely with the customer and will increase production volumes.
    The event is attended by twice as many foreign companies as a year ago

    Other novelties

    Changes are also expected in small arms. The next, third generation of the AK-12 assault rifle has received many changes in the experience of use during the SVO, both small and quite significant. Also presented is a new microwave sniper rifle, already mass-produced. For the first time in the RF Armed Forces, a sniper rifle comes immediately with a set of all modern additional equipment and equipment, including a bipod, a silent shooting device, a backpack and much more.

    Among engineering equipment, a new model of the UBIM universal combat engineering vehicle based on the T-90 tank is presented at the forum. It is designed to overcome powerful engineering obstacles that the enemy sets up on their prepared defense lines. The vehicle is equipped not only with powerful armor, but also with modern reactive armor, so it will be able to operate in advanced armored units during an offensive. The latest universal tool installed on the UBIM allows you to overcome almost all common types of anti-tank barriers.

    The Rostec state corporation has increased tank production sevenfold in 2023, the head of the corporation, Sergei Chemezov, said on November 1 in an interview with the Rossiya 24 TV channel.

    Over the year, we increased the production of tanks by seven times, light armored vehicles - infantry fighting vehicles, infantry fighting vehicles, armored vehicles - by 4.5 times, artillery, MLRS - by 2.5 times, ammunition, some types of products - by 60 times,” noted He.

    Chemezov drew attention to the fact that the equipment produced by Rostec is constantly being modernized.

    In mid-October, Rostec ahead of schedule sent a batch of remote mining engineering system (ISDM) “Agriculture” systems to the Russian troops. The latest system, using programmable ammunition, can cover an area of ​​several football fields with mines in a matter of minutes.

    Before this, on October 11, it became known that the Uralvagonzavod research and production corporation (part of the Uralvagonzavod concern of the Rostec state corporation) transferred to the Russian Ministry of Defense a batch of T- 90M Proryv and T-72B3M tanks with additional protection .

    Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation - Head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov then pointed out that such models are the most in demand: they have proven themselves well in the zone of a special military operation.

    On November 1, the head of the Rostec state corporation, Sergei Chemezov, said that the production of armored vehicles in Russia, including tanks, has seriously increased. Thus, MBT production increased 7 times in 2023.

    In addition, according to his words, spoken on the TV channel "Russia 24" , the production of armored vehicles increased by 4.5 times, including light armored vehicles, and artillery and MLRS - by 2.5 times, the production of ammunition and some other types of weapons was increased by 60 times. The volume of equipment modernization is also increasing .

    Moreover, Chemezov did not specify what period should be compared with, with 2022, or if we were talking about production standards before the start of the SVO. At the same time, it is known from open sources that in 2020, only 300 tanks (30 new and 150 modernized, as well as 120 removed from storage) of all types were delivered to the troops.

    If we build on this and take into account what Chemezov told us, it turns out that over the 10 months of 2023, 2,100 tanks of all types were delivered to the troops, of which 210 were new construction, including the T-90, and 840 were removed from storage T-72, T- 80, T-62 and T-55. It should also be taken into account that restored T-62 and T-55 are most often used not for their intended purpose, but as an improvised type of artillery. It should be noted that the above calculations by Russian experts generally coincide with foreign estimates.

    It is worth adding that in 2020 the troops received a lot of other armored vehicles. The Russian Armed Forces were replenished with 100 BMP-3 units, 60 modernized BMP-2M, about 20 BMP-1AM “Basurmanin”, 93 BMD-4M and 8 BTR-MDM “Rakushka”, 460 wheeled armored personnel carriers BTR-82A/BTR-82AM and special vehicles on their basis, 8 units of self-propelled guns 2S35 "Coalition" and 32 self-propelled guns 2S19M2 "Msta-SM", as well as other types of equipment. Multiplying these numbers by 4.5 gives an approximate figure for 2023.

    The Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, General of the Army Sergei Shoigu, this night presented to the President of the country Vladimir Putin a small light “jeep” for use on the line of combat contact. This news was commented on by Russian military correspondent Alexander Sladkov in his Telegram channel.

    Voenkor noted that the need for such a vehicle has been especially obvious recently. Lightweight jeeps are very convenient for use in close proximity to a combat zone.

    Caring for the combatants. The jeep should become a convenient means for our DRGs for rotating small groups, for transferring ammunition and provisions to the front line, and evacuating the wounded. This is great - wrote Alexander Sladkov.

    According to the military correspondent, in December 2023 the troops should receive 500 of these vehicles, and in the first ten days of January 2024 another thousand jeeps. For this, Sladkov notes, one can only express great gratitude to the Russian military-industrial complex and the Russian Ministry of Defense.

    As we see, during a special military operation, Russian troops are receiving more and more new types of military equipment and weapons. In fact, the special operation became a powerful incentive for the development of the country's military industry, strengthening the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, and improving military science and technology.

    Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that the state defense order in the interests of the special operation is specified several times a month.

    "In the interests of a special military operation, the tasks of the state defense order are being clarified on a regular basis, two or three times a month," he said at a meeting of the department's board.

    Shoigu pointed to the organization of daily control of the supply of necessary weapons and equipment to the troops.

    According to the Minister, the volume of deliveries of rocket and artillery weapons has increased 4.9 times this year compared to last year. In addition, the volume of armored weapons supplied has more than tripled and drones have increased 16 times. The supply of weapons of destruction has been increased by 12 times, including high-precision long-range missiles - by five times.

    Turkey has sharply increased its exports of military-linked goods to Russia this year.

    This is reported by the Financial Times. In the first nine months of 2023, Turkey exported $158 million worth of goods in 45 categories that the US considers "high priority" for the Russian defence industry.

    At the same time, Ankara is buying these high-priority goods from G7 countries. As a result, Western imports increased by more than 60% by 2023.

    The U.S. has already urged Turkey to stop these supplies, threatening to take "coercive measures".

    The US is retarded. Turkey is exporting semiconductors to Russia for example. But Turkish companies also have lots of factories in Russia which manufacture electrical appliances. Just because these intermediate products are now being routed through Turkey does not mean they ended up in the Russian military. Plus $158 million worth of goods in nine months is just peanuts.

    Briefly the winds changed direction and Turkey was supplying warm weather and mild weather conditions to Russian occupied parts of Ukraine (Crimea), the US has asked them to stop supporting Russia in the conflict with Ukraine....

    @ukraine_watch

    I would say if the EU and HATO wants more respect from Turkey they need to respect it in return... I mean you take them into your military group to fight wars for the US, but you wont let them into your grocery store to shop (EU).

    Compared with the beginning of last year, the volume of deliveries to the troops of the main samples of rocket and artillery weapons has increased almost five times, to be precise - by 4.9 times, armored weapons by more than three times, unmanned aerial vehicles by 16 times. The supply of weapons of destruction has been increased by 12 times, including high-precision long-range missiles by five times.

    Ukrainian sources again complaining about Russian ammo production (this just from one plant). So according to this source, one plant alone will produce over 1,250,000 rounds.

    In particular, for 2024, he planned only at the facilities of one JSC “V.V. Bakhirev State Research Institute of Mechanical Engineering” (Dzerzhinsk, Nizhny Novgorod region) the following significant increase in ammunition production:

    - 60 thousand units of 203 mm artillery ammunition (this is almost three times more than planned for 2023);
    - 683.5 thousand units of 152 mm artillery shells (this is 18% more than planned for 2023);
    - 270 thousand 125 mm tank rounds (an increase compared to this year it is almost 14%);
    – 252.7 thousand 122 mm artillery shells (here the increase is insignificant – up to 5%).

    In general, the Russian military command expects to receive from its military-industrial complex in 2024 almost a third more "freshly made" ammunition across their entire range than in 2023.

    And this is why, contrary to what we have heard some Russian commentators say, Russia shouldn't switch calibers to 155mm. And it is a good thing they never did after the Soviet collapse.
    It would have meant retooling all the production facilities for ammo, gun barrels, getting rid of all available stocks of ammunition and artillery produced since Soviet times.

    Same reason why they still use the same ammo caliber for sniper rifles since the time the Mosin-Nagant rifle came out in the XIXth century. It is pointless to change it.

    It is a waste of effort to change gun calibers for no reasonable gain. Actually it is a wanton destruction of resources.

    This way between producing new shells in available facilities and recycling old shells with new chemicals to make them operational again Russia can have all the shells it needs. Otherwise they would have been the ones unable to produce enough shells.

    155mm is not some magic calibre that makes everything fired through it travel further.

    As we have seen to get the extra range they seem to lose massively in barrel wear so firing more than 300 rounds a day will destroy the guns... and of course the issue that the extra range also means accuracy problems.

    Accuracy problems can be solved with laser guided shells or satellite guided shells but there are counter measures to both methods that render your artillery next to useless.

    Besides Russia has actually invested quite a bit into new generation 152mm ammo that will mean they exceed the performance of western 155mm ammo anyway, and such improvements could also be applied to 203mm calibre rounds too for hard or area targets that need more HE to deal with.

    For most targets I would say the upgraded Lancet drones and their other new types would be rather more cost effective.

    They are not desperate but rather smart.
    I still can't get the point why are you so raged about that?
    NK, or China, or Iran, has enormous stocks of old ammunition that is supposed to be disposed of.
    One way or another.
    If you are to dispose of ammo stock, it costs money. You need to disassemble it, melt the explosive material that is inside, utilize it. It cost work hours, energy ...
    Or you can deliver that all to your friend, who will take care of it spraying generously his opponent.
    That - by accident - is your enemy too...
    Even if Russia is supposed to pay for that, it gains a giant purchasing power bonus.
    Having this out of the head, they can focus on a different types of production, especially if we will keep in mind that they are thirsty of manpower.
    And last but not least, it can pay with its own stuff delivered, that will require maintenance, spare parts, military assistance - binding them together for the next three decades.
    And you are denying all of that because of some sort of inferiority syndrome, where the mighty Russia bust be an absolute autarky.
    OK, fine, it is religious thing I gues ... So let's pray Laughing

    Same reason why they still use the same ammo caliber for sniper rifles since the time the Mosin-Nagant rifle came out in the XIXth century. It is pointless to change it.

    They won't change it, but assist with a different types of ammo.
    Let's be serious on that - as far as 7.62x54 is a fine round for a mass usage, some special task require a different approach. That is why 12.7x108 gained so much attention for sniper rifles. And that is why there ar more and more of them.
    Plus they are wastly using other types for special tasks.
    Just take a look at Lobayev product section ...

    Russian rearmament

    Unprecedented steps to rearm the army and the navy, as well as to provide social support to servicemen have been made. The Russian defense enterprises switched to round-the-clock operation and increased capacities four times.

    Since February 2022, the output of tanks has increased 5.6 times, armored vehicles - 3.5-3.6 times, drones - 16.8 times, and artillery shells - 17.5 times.

    The defense industry has upgraded over a hundred arms and hardware units and is rapidly creating new ones. "The weapons that were designed and tested in ordinary conditions for 5-8 years, today reach serial production in 4-7 months. That has not happened since the Great Patriotic War," the minister said.

    The Ground Forces have received 1.53 thousand new and upgraded tanks, over 2.5 thousand infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers. The Aerospace Forces received 237 airplanes and helicopters, while the Navy got eight warships, four multirole submarines, and a strategic nuclear submarine.

    The Aerospace Forces received 237 aircraft and helicopters, 86 samples of anti-aircraft missile weapons and 67 radar stations.

    Propably including mortar rounds and rockets for MLRS.

    The Russian Armed Forces (AF) received more than 20 million ammunition in 2023. This became known on Tuesday, December 26, following a conference call at the Russian Ministry of Defense with the leadership of the Armed Forces.

    Also, 250 aircraft and helicopters were supplied to the Russian army, and the Navy was replenished with 57 surface ships and 617 thousand units of portable weapons and equipment, RIA Novosti reports .

    In addition, over 7.2 thousand guided missiles were supplied for air defense systems.

    Earlier, on December 5, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin announced that in 2023 the production of unmanned aerial vehicles in Russia has doubled, and the production of armored weapons has tripled. According to him, over the past 11 months, the number of products produced by the military-industrial complex (DIC) has increased significantly compared to last year’s figures.

    He also emphasized that during this time, the issues of providing the personnel of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation with field uniforms and military equipment have been resolved, and the production volume of armor protection items has tripled.

    In September, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an increase in production volumes of counter-battery and air defense (air defense) equipment and called for more active development of production capacities, introduction of advanced technologies, and also paying increased attention to the quality of the military industry.

    Still waiting for some very important vehicles.

    Not the ones you are thinking perhaps... more likely Flok and Malva types, and of course jamming vehicles or air defence vehicles for use against drones, and of course Coalition...

    In 2023, the Russian Armed Forces received over 1,500 tanks and 22,000 drones, according to Russian Defense Ministry end-of-year papers, obtained by TASS.

    "Sufficiency level: over 84%. Shipped: over 1,500 tanks, over 2,200 armored combat vehicles, over 1,400 rocket and artillery vehicles, over 22,000 unmanned aerial vehicles," the document reads.

    The Armed forces have also received over 12,000 automobile vehicles, with over 10% - 1,400 vehicles - armored.

    NOTE: Some more production figures. Would assume the 1400 armored automobiles would be the IMV's like Tigr and the MRAP's.
