    Ministry of Finance proposes to reduce spending on the state armaments program by 5%

    The Ministry of Finance proposes to reduce appropriations for the state armaments program (GPP) by 5% in 2021-2023 amid the pandemic. This follows from the methodology for the distribution of budgetary appropriations, which was reviewed by the RBC edition .

    Acording to RBC, the monetary volume of the reduction of the state armaments program is not indicated in the methodology of the Ministry of Finance. The total decrease in unscheduled expenses, which includes the reduction of GPV, is 258.2 billion rubles in 2021, 192 billion rubles in 2022 and 198.2 billion rubles in 2023.

    That ain't gonna happen.

    Anyway, they will claim victory as the state program will not be 1000% fulfilled anyway. It's always closer to 90% so they will later say "we saved 10% of it!" To make themselves look good. But reducing spending will hurt economy even further.

    I think it is sensible to reduce spending in most areas when there is the sort of disruption like this pandemic... when the economy recovers and is back up and running normally they can boost spending in the areas they cut to further boost those areas to compensate.

    In reality what it means that for a couple of years a few programmes that were going to be fully funded will be partially funded so a few things will take a bit longer to get done.

    As long as those things are not critical it should not be a serious problem.

    Getting things back into production and up and running again should be the focus in the long term but minimising the damage and preventing too much damage should also be a focus.

    Problem is that 2020 is the last year of current long term acquisition program: lot of production batches are nearing completion, so no sense to stop them now with all components already acquired and needing only to be assembled.
    Same with the programs that are near to be started: most of them, like Su-57, Tu-160m2, Armata, Kurganets, Boomerang and so on would mark an astounding advancement in operative capabilities of Russian armed forces, having (and this time for real, not just as a catchphrase for better selling) no analogues in the world.
    Maybe the most radical solution would be to retire the older equipment in a single block, leaving just the ones needed for keep crews with a minimum of training and kept the new produced ones in storage for a pair of years (also there except for the ones needed for a minimum of training) and introduce them in service all together.

    another solution which i mentioned in another thread involving reserve vehicles/vehicle in storage, its obvious due to slump in oil sales and covid effecting the economy that there is going to be a shortfall in funds. But Russia could gain funds from elsewhere as i mentioned in my post. too long to post here but just one simple aspect of a way of earning extra funds during this time as well as sort an issue of storage equipment.

    They are not talking about a blind everything gets 5% cut from its budget action here... there are a lot of programmes and projects that are not urgent or critical that may not have even started yet that they could put on hold for a year or two so rather than actually cutting funding they are just delaying it for a couple of years.

    Things like property rents and insurance obviously cannot be cut, and programmes to deliver armoured vehicles or aircraft that are being build can't really be ways to save money... not delivering them now means you need to store them which also costs money and also holding a production chain in limbo is not free either so you would end up wasting more money than you saved.

    Things they could do to save money might be delaying signing contracts for things not urgently needed, so instead of signing now and having to pay part of the fees now to get the process started they can defer it to two years time which means the whole process does not start for a couple of years... they can do more planning for it to happen later.

    They could delay a few exercises planned this year and do them next year or the year after...

    MOSCOW, November 27. / TASS /. Russian troops will receive in 2021 more than 3.4 thousand units of new and 1.3 thousand repaired equipment, two-thirds of the military budget will be spent on it, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Friday.

    "To achieve these indicators next year, two-thirds of the funds will be spent on the purchase of weapons. It is planned to supply more than 3,400 units and repair 1,300 units of basic types of military equipment," he said at a meeting of the collegium of the military department.

    The minister noted that the preparation of tender documentation and draft state contracts with the only suppliers or executors for the state defense order in 2021 is already underway. In addition, state contracts are concluded, which will enter into force after the approval of the corresponding government decree. According to him, the implementation of the state defense order next year "will ensure a balanced equipping of the armed forces with modern technology." "The equipment of constant readiness units with the latest models by the beginning of 2022 will be more than 71%, and the supply of military equipment to the armed forces will exceed 98%," Shoigu stressed.

    Earlier, the Minister of Defense demanded to bring the share of modern weapons in the Russian army to 70% by the end of this year.
    Airborne forces

    Shoigu said that the new type of Airborne Forces formations are much more mobile, and their fire capabilities have increased by 20%. "At the same time, the mobility of the compound has increased six times, and the firepower has increased by 20%," he said.

    The minister noted that as part of the experiment on the formation of airborne forces of a new type, "new ways of carrying out combat missions by airborne assault units and subunits on helicopters during maneuvering, network and focal military operations were investigated."

    The results of the experiment, according to the minister, showed not only the expediency of developing a new type of airborne forces, but also "the need to further improve the theory and practice of using the Airborne Forces as the basis of the mobile component of the armed forces."
    Maintaining the pace of deliveries

    The Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia have figured out how to maintain the pace of deliveries of military equipment, avoid the negative impact of the coronavirus on the Russian military-industrial complex and exclude unplanned budget spending in 2021-2023. "To achieve the required level of equipping the troops, the Ministry of Defense, together with the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Industry and Trade, have developed schemes for financing state contracts by attracting targeted loans and returning them in 2024-2027," Shoigu said, speaking about the state defense order project for 2021 and for the planned period 2022 and 2023.

    "This will allow maintaining the planned volumes of supplies of weapons, military and special equipment, ensuring the loading of enterprises of the military-industrial complex in the context of the spread of a new coronavirus infection, excluding the growth in the cost of government contracts and the emergence of unplanned additional expenses of the federal budget," the minister added.

    He noted that next year the Ministry of Defense will continue to increase the supply of modern weapons, as well as the volume of repair and modernization of military equipment.
    About the wives of the military

    According to Shoigu, over the past three years, the Ministry of Defense has employed almost all the wives of military personnel who need work. "Over the past three years, the number of wives of military personnel in need of employment has decreased 94 times, now this figure is 88," he said.

    In addition, the number of children of the military who require places in preschool institutions has dropped from 7,000 to 257, the minister said.

    "Thus, to date, in most constituent entities of the Russian Federation, the issues of employment of members of the families of military personnel and the placement of their children in kindergartens have generally been resolved. Nevertheless, it is important to continue this work so that the defenders of the Fatherland are calm about the well-being of their families," the minister concluded. ...

    New Year's Eve reconciliation

    Strategic projects are being implemented under the control of the Ministry of Defense.

    Deputy Defense Minister Alexei Krivoruchko made a working trip to a number of enterprises of the military-industrial complex, where he got acquainted with the progress of work in the interests of the military department and held meetings on topical issues of the implementation of the state defense order.

    Severomorsk shipbuilders

    At JSC “Production Association“ Sevmash ”, the Deputy Minister of Defense checked the organization and progress of the repair and deep modernization of the Project 11442M ship, as well as the construction of nuclear submarines of the Borey-A and Yasen-M projects.
    In the course of the work planned for the project 11442M ship "Admiral Nakhimov", replacement and renewal of life support systems, radio engineering complexes, and ship power will be carried out. Rearmament with new missile and artillery systems is also planned.
    In addition, the plant is working on the construction of two main types of fourth-generation nuclear submarines - the strategic project 955A (Borey-A) and the multipurpose project 885M (Yasen-M).
    The lead missile carrier of the Borei-A series, Knyaz Vladimir, is already serving in the Northern Fleet.
    In accordance with the Russian Naval Doctrine, the submarines of this project will form the basis of the country's naval strategic nuclear forces.
    During the visit, the Deputy Minister got acquainted with the next under construction nuclear submarine of this project - "Prince Oleg". In the summer of this year, the ship was removed from the boathouse. Now it is being tested at the Desna landing stage.
    At present, the head multipurpose nuclear submarine "Kazan" of the modernized project "Yasen-M" is undergoing state tests in the White Sea. Recall that recently the crew of the nuclear submarine, while performing a test exercise, hit a land target located at a distance of over 1000 km from the launch point with a high-precision cruise missile "Caliber". And the other day the following exercise was successfully completed - firing an anti-ship cruise missile at a sea target.
    When implementing the planned production plans, the enterprise will have to perform a large amount of work in the coming years. According to the Deputy Minister of Defense, the production capacity of the plant is fully loaded with orders from the Ministry of Defense until 2027. The production association is to annually transfer to the Navy one nuclear submarine of the Borei-A and Yasen-M projects.
    “It is planned to build 14 nuclear submarines, Boreyev and Yasenei,” explained Alexey Krivoruchko.
    During his visit to the plant, the Deputy Minister of Defense visited shop No. 41 and got acquainted with the manufacture of safety furniture for nuclear submarines of a new generation, developed by the designers of JSC PO Sevmash.
    This is a new direction in the production activity of the plant.
    The enterprise is completing a program of modernization and renovation of production, which was launched in 2012. Its goal is to transform "Sevmash" into a modern shipyard, where the construction of ships of any class is provided. New production facilities in terms of technological level and technical equipment must fully comply with international requirements and be comparable to the best foreign shipbuilding sites.
    At JSC PO Sevmash, with the direct participation of representatives of the military acceptance of the Ministry of Defense, new technological processes are being mastered. In particular, the company has optimized the technology for testing impenetrable spaces of ships.
    The innovation consists in pressurizing air instead of pressure testing with water. These changes were implemented after agreement with the military representation, the designer and industry research institutes.
    The new development shortened the time and reduced the cost of testing the impermeable volumes of TARK by about 50 million rubles.
    At present, PO Sevmash JSC uses a modular-aggregate method introduced during the construction of third-generation nuclear-powered ships. This construction technology provides that the finished, but not yet tested, block sections of the future nuclear submarine come from the hull-welding production to the slipway. Blocks are formed from them, which pass the stage of hydraulic tests. After its completion, the sections are again disconnected. At the suggestion of the military department, shipbuilders are working on a project that will radically change the technology for manufacturing missile submarines.
    Now the enterprise is preparing for the introduction of modular technology for building nuclear submarines. The new method involves assembling ships from large blocks, loaded with equipment. The use of block-modular technology should reduce labor intensity and construction time.
    The new technology will reduce not only the slipway period, but also the costs due to the transfer of a colossal amount of work from the slipway to specialized workshops.
    The introduction of a new construction method will require the modernization of production facilities. This work is already in progress.

    Work on the construction of nuclear submarines "Borey-A" and "Yasen-M" in the Ministry of Defense are under special control

    Buryat Aviation Forge

    - Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant has established itself as a reliable, proven supplier of the Russian Ministry of Defense. The undertaken obligations within the framework of the state defense order are being fulfilled ahead of schedule, the enterprise produces equipment, the quality of which has been tested in real combat conditions, - the deputy minister said when visiting the enterprise.
    At the plant, he checked the production progress of the new Mi-8AMTSh-VN helicopter. At the moment, a prototype of the machine is undergoing flight tests at the flight test center of the National Center for Helicopter Engineering named after I. M.L. Mil and N.I. Kamov.
    Mi-8AMTSh-VN - a helicopter for supporting the actions of special forces in 2017 attracted a lot of attention from both specialists and the military and ordinary visitors to the International Aviation and Space Salon. At the Army-2019 International Military-Technical Forum, the Ministry of Defense signed a contract for the supply of ten vehicles of this modification.
    The helicopter, manufactured in this special version, can solve a wide range of tasks: from transport and landing to fire support. The technical appearance of the modernized vehicle was formed taking into account the experience of combat use in armed conflicts of varying intensity.
    Mi-8AMTSh-VN is equipped with "high-altitude" engines of increased power. The basis of its new carrier system is a propeller with composite blades of a modern aerodynamic profile. The machine is also equipped with a more efficient X-shaped tail rotor. Taken together, these improvements have increased maneuverability, flight speed and thrust-to-weight ratio. The new characteristics obtained allow the crew to operate the vehicle in the most difficult geographic and climatic conditions.
    The new modification has increased combat survivability and security, which are provided by the onboard defense system, titanium alloy armor covering the cockpit and vital units. Lightweight aramid armor also covers the landing in the cargo compartment. Two sliding doors on the sides and additional hatches make it possible to minimize the landing time of the assault force as much as possible. In addition, the helicopter has an improved weapon system.
    - In the near future we will receive the car for service, deliveries will begin next year, - said the Deputy Minister of Defense.
    In the future, for this modification, the military department plans to conclude several more contracts.
    In addition, Alexey Krivoruchko was introduced to other projects implemented at the enterprise. In particular, the program for the production of the Ka-226T light helicopter ordered by the Indian Ministry of Defense is being successfully implemented. It is also of interest to the Russian Ministry of Defense in conjunction with domestic engines.
    The first prototypes of the Ka-226T are planned to be launched into the air in the first half of next year.

    Multipurpose tanker

    During his visit to Aviastar-SP JSC, the Deputy Minister got acquainted with the production facilities of the Ulyanovsk aircraft building enterprise. At the same time, the deputy head of the military department monitored the production of Il-76MD-90A transport aircraft.
    The final point of the visit was the signing of a contract for the serial production of ten new Il-78M-90A tanker aircraft.
    - The plant goes into rhythmic serial production. The enterprise is provided with orders of the Ministry of Defense for the long term, - said Alexey Krivoruchko. - Today, another state contract was signed, which will further strengthen the financial and economic condition of the enterprise and provide additional jobs for the Ulyanovsk region.
    The new tanker is designed on the basis of the military transport Il-76MD-90A and is equipped with four PS-90A-76 engines. The tanker is equipped with a modern flight and navigation complex, and also has a so-called glass cockpit. It improves flight safety and simplifies the work of the crew.
    The Il-78M-90A, with the help of underwing filling units, can simultaneously refuel two frontline aircraft, and from the tail unit it is capable of refueling long-range and special aircraft. When using the IL-78M-90A on the ground, four aircraft are simultaneously refueled.
    At the request of the Ministry of Defense, the new vehicle can be used in a military transport version. For this there is a ramp, landing equipment. If necessary, it is possible to install fire extinguishing equipment, as well as refueling equipment: additional tanks for fuel inside the cargo compartment.

    Anniversary date
    Deputy Minister of Defense of Russia Alexei Krivoruchko together with President of the Republic of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov, Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy Admiral Nikolai Evmenov visited JSC Zelenodolsk Plant named after A.M. Gorky ". During the visit, the Deputy Minister got acquainted with the exhibition of enterprises of the military-industrial complex of the Republic of Tatarstan, heard reports from the general directors of enterprises on the progress of the state defense order and took part in a festive concert dedicated to the 125th anniversary of JSC Zelenodolsk Plant named after A.M. Gorky ".
    For 125 years, the plant has built more than 1,500 sea, river ships and vessels of various classes and purposes. The location in the center of Russia, on the Volga, allows the company to supply ships and vessels to the regions of the Black, Caspian, Baltic, North Seas by inland waterways.
    The production and technical base of the enterprise consists of a complex of workshops covering all types of shipbuilding production and allowing to build various types of ships, small and medium class ships.
    The Ministry of Defense considers the enterprise to be one of the most reliable in terms of the quality of implementation of state contracts on military topics.
    - We work harmoniously. There are contracts for today, and more will be concluded in the near future. This enterprise will live and develop, and we will definitely support such a team, - said Oleksiy Krivoruchko in his congratulations.
    In turn, the President of the Republic of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov thanked the representatives of the Ministry of Defense for the high assessment of the work of the enterprise staff.

    Mi-8AMTSh-VN has increased combat survivability and security, which are provided by an onboard defense system, titanium alloy armor

    Northern Footsteps
    During his working trip to St. Petersburg, Deputy Defense Minister Alexei Krivoruchko checked the progress of the state defense order at the Severnaya Verf shipyard.
    The deputy head of the military department visited the shipyards on which ships are being built in the interests of the Russian Navy, and also held a meeting with the management of the United Shipbuilding Corporation and representatives of shipbuilding enterprises in the North-West region of Russia.
    Currently, the Severnaya Verf shipyard under contracts with the Ministry of Defense continues to build six Project 22350 frigates, five Project 20380, 20385 and 20386 corvettes, and a Project 23120 logistic support vessel.
    Alexey Krivoruchko inspected several ships on the outfitting embankment of the plant and heard a report from Igor Orlov, General Director of Severnaya Verf, on the results of state tests of the lead corvette of Project 20385 "Thundering", as well as on the construction of the logistics support vessel 23120 Vsevolod Bobrov.
    “We expect that the Thundering corvette will be transferred to the Russian Navy this year, and the logistics support vessel Vsevolod Bobrov will be handed over in the first half of 2021,” the deputy minister said. - The enterprise complies with all the terms of state tests for commissioning orders. The works are carried out in accordance with the established schedules.

    Klimovskaya traction

    As part of his working trip to St. Petersburg, Aleksey Krivoruchko checked the progress of the state defense order at JSC UEC-Klimov, assessed the production and experimental facilities of the enterprise.
    The Ministry of Defense has contracted for UEC-Klimov engines of the RD-33 family for the MiG-35, TV7-117ST engines created for the Il-112V turboprop transport aircraft, VK-2500 engines used as part of the power plant on helicopters of the Mi and Ka families, and also TV7-117V for the Mi-38 and other promising machines.
    In 2020, the company fulfilled all obligations under the state defense order. "The projected utilization of the production facilities of JSC UEC-Klimov is up to 2023 inclusive," said the Deputy Minister of the Defense Ministry.
    The enterprise is working to improve the VK-2500. At the end of September, Aleksey Krivoruchko signed the Act of State Bench Testing of the VK-2500P Turboshaft Engine. The document became the final point in engine tests, which began in October 2019 at the plant's bench base.
    The VK-2500P turboshaft engine with a free turbine has a number of improved characteristics compared to the base model. Among the distinctive features of the novelty are anti-surge protection and an upgraded automatic control system (new BARK-6V-7P), additional fasteners for newly installed pipelines of the fuel, oil and air systems.
    When using VK-2500P on a helicopter, the power plant operation mode is restored when the engine is turned off in flight and during surge, as well as a significant increase in the functionality of the engine control system.
    In terms of technical data and performance, the engine meets all modern requirements for motors of this class.
    The enterprise is working on projects of particular importance for the Ministry of Defense. As part of the import substitution program, new VK-650V (400–650 hp) and VK-1600V (1400–1800 hp) engines are being created.
    The VK-650V engine is being developed for the Ka-226T and Ansat helicopters. The VK-1600V engine will be used on Ka-62 helicopters. The possibilities of application for a light attack helicopter, an unmanned aviation complex, and the development of an aircraft version are being considered. As part of the work on the creation of engines, a test base is being prepared, and demonstrators are being produced and manufactured.
    Designers are faced with the challenge of creating simple and reliable engines with a minimum life cycle cost. Their certification is scheduled for completion in 2023.

    So the Government is looking to cut about $1.2B in next years defense. Most likely due to procurement not being met in full.

    Does anyone have the amount allocated but not spent this year? I know the government mentioned that this would happen if not all the equipment ordered were delivered.

    More likely comes from the 5th columnist Ministry of Finance bean counters. They would love to cut military expenditures by 30% so they could buy more US Treasury notes...despite the fact that oil prices will be up next year and Russia has 15% debt to GDP.

    Who knows.

    The government already told the economic ministry to take a hike.

    I presume the $1.2B is in a mixed form of: removing some positions that were military but now can be civilian, finished R&D (Avangarde and Zirkon for instance) and delivery of equipment moved to next year so no further order till the current one is completed.

    They are damn strict on their budget but they tend to show efficiency in the last 5 years.

    Covid has effected everyone... you would have to be pretty damn stupid to just plow on with existing plans regardless of what is happening in the real world... that would just be dumb.

    I am sure they could find a few things that can't be completed because of covid and that would save money by delaying it for a year or two.

    They have already delayed the introduction of the Pine/Sosna air defence system because they want to tweak the design a bit to make it more suitable and then deploy it to all the ground forces and the VDV.

    The delay in setting up factories for mass production of the vehicles and missiles alone would probably save a large chunk of money now, though that would have to be added to a later budget... but hopefully as things return to normal there should be a production bonus for countries that produce things... Russia produces things... not on the same scale as China does and not to as many markets but it still produces...

    The new mega-interview with Krivoruchko:

    Russia's weapons are ahead of their time

    The plans for the modernization of the RF Armed Forces are carried out in any conditions.

    The army and navy are rearming at a rapid pace. Development of new types of weapons is underway, advanced models are being tested. Troops and forces are receiving new Strategic Missile Forces complexes, ships, aircraft, air defense systems, missile and artillery complexes, armored combat vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles for various purposes ... About this, as well as other successes in improving the domestic weapons system in the outgoing year and Alexey KRIVORUCHKO, Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, tells about plans for the future.

    - Alexey Yuryevich, what are the results of the 2020 state defense order?
    - At the end of the current year, the tasks of the state defense order have been fully placed, and the plans for the supply and repair of weapons and military equipment have been implemented by 99.8 percent, which, in principle, is an excellent indicator.
    In the current year, the military missions of the Russian Ministry of Defense accepted about 2,700 basic weapons and more than 52,500 units of support equipment.

    At present, 147 units of aviation equipment have been delivered to the troops, the first reconnaissance and strike complexes with UAVs "Inokhodets" and "Forpost", seven warships and two submarines, over 1,500 models of armored vehicles, as well as more than 300 units of rocket and artillery weapons and more than 150 samples of air defense equipment.
    This year, the President of the Russian Federation supported the initiative of the Russian Ministry of Defense under the Advanced Financing Program, the main goal of which was to reduce the delivery time for weapons samples and prevent an increase in their cost.
    The scheme is being implemented both for the supply of ships of the far sea zone and aviation equipment, and for the armament of general-purpose forces and high-precision weapons.
    As a result of the implementation of the program, it is planned to build 18 surface ships and submarines (including 15 units in excess of the main indicators of GPV-2027). At the same time, 16 ships are currently under construction and 19 are being modernized, 6 corvettes are planned from 2021, and the total number of ships under construction will reach 41 units.
    As for aviation technology, by the end of 2024, 94 aircraft and helicopters will be delivered ahead of schedule, including 22 Su-57 aircraft.
    The planned indicators of procurement of modern samples, including through advanced financing, will ensure the achievement of the share of modern weapons and military equipment in permanent readiness units by the end of 2024 to the level of 75.9 percent, which is significantly higher than the parameters laid down in the previous plans.

    By the end of 2024, early deliveries of 94 aircraft and helicopters will be provided, including 22 Su-57 aircraft.

    - Tell us about the main directions of the rearmament of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in 2021 and plans for the future.
    - The priority tasks of equipping the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, which are solved through the state defense order, have been determined. Among them - complex re-equipment with modern systems and models of weapons; improvement of the technical equipment of the Armed Forces through the modernization of existing weapons; creation of multipurpose weapons and the development of nuclear deterrent forces, aerospace defense systems, communications, reconnaissance and control systems, electronic warfare, complexes with unmanned aerial vehicles, robotic strike systems, modern transport aviation, precision weapons and means of combating them, as well as personal protection systems for military personnel.
    Long-term plans for the rearmament of the Armed Forces will be implemented within the framework of the current state armament program for 2024–2033.
    The focus will be on the timely completion of state tests and the adoption of samples that determine the appearance of promising weapons systems.
    At the same time, the main efforts are concentrated on completing experimental design work on the creation of promising weapons and military equipment for the Ground Forces and the Air Force, putting them into serial production and then ensuring the required rates of re-equipment of troops.
    The measures taken to restructure the research complex of the Russian Ministry of Defense are aimed, among other things, at ensuring the completion in 2022 of the creation of a promising T-14 tank, infantry fighting vehicles (T-15, B-11, K-17), armored personnel carriers (B-10, K-16), armored repair and recovery vehicle (T-16) (ROC "Armata", "Kurganets-25" and "Boomerang"), 152-mm self-propelled artillery (ROC "Coalition-SV"), as well as a whole a line of advanced combat modules for equipping tracked and wheeled vehicles.
    To reduce the delivery time of promising samples to the troops, their production will be carried out before the completion of tests after confirming the specified characteristics and conducting approbations in conditions close to combat.
    Starting next year, it is planned to increase the supply of modern aircraft and high-precision long-range weapons, the annual construction of six ships of various classes and displacement at domestic shipyards, as well as the purchase of complexes with UAVs in reconnaissance and strike performance.
    Already, measures are underway to further increase the purchase of Su-57 aircraft, the results of which will be taken into account in the new state armament program.
    Next year it is planned to complete tests and adopt the S-500 anti-aircraft missile system and the Voronezh meter-range radar station.
    In 2021, the rate of equipping with new types of weapons and those that have undergone repairs with modernization will remain at the same level.
    - The priority area of ​​development of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation is the modernization of the Strategic Nuclear Forces. What has been done in this area in the past year, what tasks have been set for the next?
    - The rearmament of the Strategic Nuclear Forces is carried out in three components: ground, sea and air.
    The rearmament of six missile divisions with fifth-generation missile systems has already been completed, and this work is continuing in four more. At the same time, at least 95 percent of the launchers are continuously in combat readiness.
    The development priorities are the rearmament of the advanced mobile and stationary missile systems Yars and Avangard, which have improved anti-missile defense capabilities, as well as the creation of the newest complex with the Sarmat heavy missile. I would like to note that today the Sarmat missile throw tests have been completed with a positive result. In the near future, we will begin flight tests of this missile system.
    The development of the naval component provides for the construction and commissioning of nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines of the Borei-A project with the simultaneous creation of infrastructure for their basing, as well as the extension of the service life of existing strategic missile submarines.
    The construction of four cruisers of this project is underway, two more will be laid within the framework of a new state contract concluded this year.
    The air component of the triad is planned to be improved by ensuring the delivery of Tu-160 strategic missile carriers. Today, measures for their production are being implemented, state contracts have been concluded, and next year we plan to start receiving them into the troops.
    The implementation of the delivery programs will make it possible to increase the number of these aircraft by more than 50 percent in the next seven years. Further build-up of the fleet of aviation complexes is planned under the new state armament program for 2024–2033.
    Work continues on the deep modernization of the Tu-95MS strategic missile carriers for the use of the latest weapons. Work is underway to create promising long-range air-launched cruise missiles and hypersonic aircraft missiles.
    - Alexey Yurievich, what are the immediate and future tasks of the Navy's shipbuilding program?
    - The development of the Navy is one of the equipment priorities, which is primarily implemented within the framework of the construction of ships in the far sea zone and new diesel-electric submarines.
    Under the leadership of the President of the Russian Federation, two universal amphibious assault ships of a new project with a displacement of 40 thousand tons each were laid.
    Under the current conditions, to ensure the pace of equipping the Navy, a number of government contracts are also being implemented using advanced financing mechanisms, which will ensure the supply of ships one to three years ahead of schedule.
    This year, the Navy included a Project 955A nuclear submarine "Knyaz Vladimir", a diesel-electric submarine "Volkhov", a large landing ship "Pyotr Morgunov", corvettes of Project 20380 "Hero of the Russian Federation Aldar Tsydenzhapov", project 20385 "Thundering" and others.
    In total, in accordance with the current state armament program until 2027, the transfer of 14 nuclear submarines of the Borey-A and Yasen-M projects is envisaged.
    The tests of the missile armament complex with the Zircon hypersonic cruise missile are underway. So, in 2020, a number of successful launches of the Zircon missile complex from the frigate Admiral Gorshkov were carried out, and starting from 2022 their serial delivery will begin.
    The annual purchase of Onyx anti-ship cruise missiles and Caliber sea-based cruise missiles continues.
    - Recently, everyone has heard of the development of weapons based on new physical principles. What can you tell us about the work in this direction?
    - Within the framework of the Concept for the Creation of Kinetic Weapons, the Russian Ministry of Defense, together with leading industrial enterprises, is developing high-tech weapons.
    As you know, on March 1, 2018, the President of the Russian Federation, in the framework of the Address to the Federal Assembly, presented the newest Peresvet laser complex among the breakthrough weapon systems. Since the end of 2019, all Peresvet complexes have been on alert.
    Currently, work is underway to create other laser systems to counter unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as optical and optical-electronic means of the enemy. They are being integrated with the fire weapons of armored vehicles to combat attacking high-precision weapons.
    The development of a radio frequency complex for the functional destruction of electronic equipment of unmanned aerial vehicles is underway.

    Starting next year, it is planned to increase purchases of complexes with UAVs
    in reconnaissance and strike performance

    - The creation and equipping of troops with robotic systems, including complexes with unmanned aerial vehicles, is a priority task in the construction and development of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. How much has the UAV functionality expanded?
    - In order to increase the capabilities of our troops to carry out the tasks at hand, the creation of complexes with multifunctional unmanned aerial vehicles of various classes is being completed, capable of solving problems as part of groups or "swarms" in cooperation with manned aircraft, as well as in conjunction with ground and sea robotic complexes.
    This primarily concerns the use of small unmanned aerial vehicles. The use of such UAVs is firmly established in practice and today has become an everyday event. Complexes with UAVs of various types and purposes are now being equipped with military formations in all types and branches of the Russian army, as well as troops that are not included in the types and branches of troops, from tactical to strategic levels. Corresponding units and services have been created, special training of personnel has been organized, repairs and maintenance of equipment are being carried out.
    The troops have already received the first samples of complexes with medium-range reconnaissance and strike unmanned aerial vehicles and patrolling ammunition, which are being successfully tested in combat conditions.
    The unmanned aerial vehicles created to equip our army are capable of performing missions in the face of countermeasures by the enemy's radio electronic means and air defense systems.
    In addition, they are equipped not only with systems ensuring the performance of reconnaissance and strike missions, but also with equipment for performing special missions, including in the interests of using high-precision air, sea and land-based weapons.
    The tasks solved by such UAVs are constantly expanding. If at the initial stage small-sized UAVs were used for optoelectronic reconnaissance, now they are performing the tasks of electronic warfare, relaying communications, delivering cargo, providing target designation to guided weapons, and even strike missions.
    The widespread use of small-sized UAVs can significantly reduce the consumption of ammunition to destroy targets, increase the flexibility and efficiency of the use of artillery.
    At the same time, they are integrated into a single reconnaissance and information space, which ensures that information about the ground, surface and air situation is brought to the control bodies in real time, which is necessary for making operational decisions when commanding troops and using weapons.
    Currently, great importance is attached to the development of large-size attack UAVs. First of all, the existing complexes with UAVs "Altius", "Paceman" and "Outpost" are equipped with guided weapons. Testing these complexes in real conditions using small-sized homing ammunition has shown their high efficiency.
    On their basis, enterprises are currently developing reconnaissance and strike complexes of a new generation, equipped with weapons and satellite communications. These aircraft will go to flight tests in 2021, followed by mass production and delivery to the troops.
    By the end of 2021, complexes with long-range and long-range multifunctional drones will be supplied to equip the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, which will be armed with both guided aviation weapons used on operational-tactical aviation aircraft, and specialized ammunition. Their use will make it possible to deliver pinpoint strikes not only against stationary, but also against moving enemy targets.
    The development of small-sized guided bombs and missiles is nearing completion, prototypes of which are already being tested in the army; they will also go into production from next year.
    As for the opinion that the developed low-speed UAVs with screw engines are outdated, it is controversial.
    The functionality of the complex is determined by the presence on board the appropriate means of reconnaissance and destruction, the quality and security of the data transmission channel, the use of elements of artificial intelligence. In these parameters, as well as in flight and technical characteristics, the "Pacer" is a modern carrier.
    At the same time, when developing domestic unmanned systems, one of the tasks is import independence. Therefore, we make the most of our own capabilities to ensure not only high performance of UAVs, their systems and equipment, but also the possibility of their serial production and repair, and this complicates the task at the development stage.
    In conclusion, I would like to note that the UAV complexes, created by order of the Russian Ministry of Defense, are planned to be used not only in the interests of defense and security, but also in the socio-economic development of Russia in the spheres of transport, agriculture and others.
    A promising direction in the development of unmanned aircraft is expanding the range of tasks solved using complexes with UAVs, increasing their flight performance, equipping long-range enemy targets with reconnaissance and fire destruction means, introducing elements of artificial intelligence into the control system of unmanned aerial vehicles, integrating UAVs into a single airspace with manned aircraft.

    What military equipment will the Russian army receive in 2021

    More than 4,700 units of new and repaired military equipment will receive the RF Armed Forces this year. It is assumed that two-thirds of Russia's military budget will be spent on the purchase of this weapon. The indicator of the equipment of constant readiness units with the latest weapons will exceed 71% by the beginning of 2022 (now - 70% for general forces), while the supply of military equipment in accordance with the state defense order (SDO) will be more than 98%

    Speaking at the end of December 2020 at an expanded meeting of the collegium of the Ministry of Defense, President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin set the task of continuing to re-equip the army and navy with modern weapons and equipment and accurately fulfill the tasks of the state defense order in a timely manner.

    "In the strategic forces, we have already created a serious scientific and technical reserve for weapons and equipment that have no analogues in the world. General purpose forces should develop in the same direction. I will add that the Ministry of Defense and defense industry enterprises should work out the issue of concluding long-term contracts on all major types of weapons. At the same time, it is necessary to absolutely exclude an unjustified increase in the cost of orders, to use effective methods of pricing, "Putin said.

    Strategic Missile Forces (Strategic Rocket Forces)

    This year, they will receive 13 launchers with Yars intercontinental ballistic missiles and Avangard hypersonic complexes . To ensure the functioning of these strategic weapons systems, it is planned to complete the construction of infrastructure facilities in Kozelsk, Yasny, Uzhur, Novosibirsk and Yoshkar-Ola.

    It is planned that the next regiment of the Barnaul missile formation will receive mobile Yars complexes, and the next regiment of the Kozelsk missile formation will receive a silo version of this weapon system. According to the commander of the Strategic Missile Forces, Colonel-General Sergei Karakaev, the refurbishment of the Yasnensky missile formation for the Avangard missile system will also continue.

    It is assumed that by the end of this year, the first regiment of the Avangard hypersonic complexes, which took up combat duty at the end of 2019 in the Orenburg region, will be brought up to its full complement - six silo launchers.

    At the same time, the improvement of infrastructure facilities for testing the latest strategic weapons systems will continue. In particular, it is planned this year to equip a range for flight tests of the Sarmat missile near the settlement of Severo-Yeniseisky in the Krasnoyarsk Territory.

    Additional funding allocated for the production of the latest strategic weapons systems will allow bringing the level of modern technology in the strategic nuclear forces to 88.3%.

    Navy (Navy)

    The fleet will receive a significant number of both surface ships and submarines. In particular, it will be replenished with four submarines (including two nuclear submarines (nuclear submarines) of project 955A "Borey-A" with ballistic missiles "Bulava" - "Prince Oleg" and "Generalissimus Suvorov" , as well as one nuclear submarine of project 885M "Yasen-M "- " Kazan " ). By the way, in accordance with the current state armament program until 2027, the transfer of 14 nuclear submarines of the Borey-A and Yasen-M projects is envisaged.

    The navy's combat strength should include six surface ships , as well as 22 boats and support vessels . Among them - one frigate of project 22350 "Admiral Golovko" and two corvettes of project 20380 -  "Zealous" and "Sharp" . It is also assumed that one Project 12700 Aleksandrit - Yakov Balyaev - mine defense ship will be delivered to the fleet .

    The Navy also expects the transfer of a significant number of ships after repair and modernization. In particular, TASS sources reported that by the end of the year, nuclear submarines of Project 671RTMK Tambov and Project 971 Leopard will return to the fleet . The transfer of the Project 775 large landing ship " Alexander Shabalin" is planned .

    The military department pays considerable attention to the modernization of the auxiliary forces of the fleet. So, in 2021, the fleet will receive an oceanographic research vessel of project 02670 "Evgeny Goriglezhan" , one large hydrographic catamaran boat of project 23370G, two anti-sabotage boats of project 21980 "Grachonok" , a torpedo boat of the new project TL-2195 , a logistic support vessel of project 23120 " Vsevolod Bobrov " and a number of other auxiliary ships and boats.

    The modernization and repair of the AS-36 Bester submarine of the Northern Fleet will be completed.

    Aerospace Forces (VKS)


    The Aerospace Forces and naval aviation of the Navy will receive more than 100 new and modernized aircraft .

    This year, state tests of the modernized strategic missile carrier Tu-160M ​​are to begin , after which it will enter service. The improved aircraft made its maiden flight in February 2020. In the course of modernization, the aircraft received new flight and navigation equipment, an onboard communications complex, a control system, a radar station, and an electronic countermeasures system.

    It is expected that in 2021, the Ministry of Defense and the United Aircraft Corporation (under the control of the Rostec state corporation) will sign a contract for the construction of modernized Su-34M front-line bombers . Under another contract, about 20 Su-34s are being built for the Aerospace Forces.

    The fighter aircraft of the Aerospace Forces is to receive four newest fifth-generation multirole fighters Su-57 . It was reported that the first serial Su-57 entered service with one of the aviation regiments of the Southern Military District in December last year. By the end of 2024, the number of these machines in the troops will increase to 22 units, and by 2028, 76 Su-57 fighters will be transferred to the Ministry of Defense.

    The Aerospace Forces helicopter fleet is also expected to be significantly strengthened - the troops are to receive the latest Mi-38 helicopters produced by the Russian Helicopters holding (part of Rostec). The heavy military transport helicopter Mi-26T2V is expected to reach the stage of serial production in the first half of this year , which will significantly increase the mobility of units and the ability of troops to transport personnel and cargo.

    It is also planned to receive the first ten Mi-8AMTSh-VN transport and combat helicopters , including for the army aviation brigades that support the landing.

    It was reported that PJSC "Rostvertol" began mass production of Mi-28NM attack helicopters, modernized, taking into account the experience of using in Syria . He received a new engine, avionics with a perfect sighting and search system and the ability to interact with drones. Also, a new missile was developed for it with a range of up to 25 km. It is planned that 98 of these machines will be delivered by 2027.

    The Aerospace Forces training aircraft fleet will be replenished with the Yak-152 light piston aircraft intended for initial flight training. In conjunction with the Yak-130 jet training aircraft, it will provide a full cycle of training for cadets.

    Ground troops

    As part of the state defense order, the Ground Forces are expected to replenish more than 400 units of armored vehicles. Among them are the newest T-72B3M , T-80BVM and T-90M "Breakthrough" tanks, BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicles and modernized BMP-2 with the "Berezhok" fighting compartment , as well as armored personnel carriers BTR-82A .

    Thus, the formations and military units of the tank army of the Western Military District (ZVO) in Moscow, Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod, Smolensk, Ivanovo and Yaroslavl regions will receive more than 200 tanks, armored personnel carriers, infantry fighting vehicles, tank support combat vehicles (BMPT) "Terminator" and engineering vehicles, as well as training systems for training their crews. The Taman motorized rifle division will be replenished with more than 18 Khrysanthem-S self-propelled anti-tank missile systems , which will replace the older Shturms.

    Serial deliveries to the troops of the latest T-14 tanks on the Armata platform , designed and manufactured by the Uralvagonzavod concern, are to begin . It was reported that a number of military universities have already begun training crews for these vehicles.

    Artillery units of troops will continue to be equipped with the latest barrel artillery systems - the newest self-propelled artillery units "Coalition-SV" will be supplied to the armament of the units, units and formations of the Southern Military District . The capabilities of the artillery subunits will also be increased due to the new systems - experimental military operation of ammunition for the newest TOS-2 Tosochka heavy flamethrower system is planned for the current year .

    In addition, it is expected to start serial production of the 82-mm Drok self-propelled mortar , the Phlox 120-mm self-propelled artillery gun and the Magnolia artillery system based on a two-link tracked conveyor. These new vehicles, developed by the Central Research Institute "Burevestnik" as part of the "Sketch" development work, will significantly improve the effectiveness of direct fire support for ground units on the battlefield.

    In addition, the RChBZ troops will receive a modernized TOS-1A "Solntsepek" heavy flamethrower system . According to the developers, the modernization made it possible to increase the range and accuracy of fire, and reduced the rate of ammunition consumption.

    Airborne Forces (VDV)

    It is planned to start deliveries of the latest airborne armored vehicles with an increased level of security "Typhoon-VDV" . These vehicles are equipped with a remotely controlled weapon station with a 30-mm automatic cannon, a PKTM machine gun, and an automatic transmission.

    In addition, it is expected that the Airborne Forces will begin to receive a new communication and control system, which will reduce the time for transmitting and receiving information at all levels of decision-making by at least half.

    In total, more than 500 modern armored combat vehicles should be supplied to the Ground Forces, the Airborne Forces and the coastal troops of the Navy .

    Air Defense Troops

    It is planned to put into service two regimental sets of air defense systems -400 "Triumph" air defense systems and 18 "Pantsir-S" anti-aircraft missile systems . Also, the Ministry of Defense reported that this year they plan to complete the process of testing the newest anti-aircraft missile system (SAM) S-500 "Prometheus" and its adoption.

    The construction of a factory-readiness radar station (radar) "Voronezh" in Vorkuta is to be completed and its supply for experimental combat duty. It is also expected to start work on the construction of the Yakhroma radar in Sevastopol and individual over-the-horizon air target detection units in Kaliningrad and Zeya. Yakhroma will become a unique station - it will operate in four bands (meter, centimeter, decimeter and millimeter), while the radar viewing angle will be 270 degrees.

    Air defense forces should also receive an installation batch of reconnaissance and control vehicles for tactical air defense systems Gibka-S .

    Also, the re-equipment of the anti-aircraft missile subdivisions of the Central Military District, stationed in the Krasnoyarsk Territory and Khakassia, with the newest anti-aircraft missile system S-350 "Vityaz" will begin . Previously, this complex was supplied only for training specialists in a training center in the Leningrad region. In total, until 2027, the delivery of 12 S-350 divisions is envisaged.

    Other technique

    At the final military collegium of the Ministry of Defense, it was reported that by the end of the year, complexes with multifunctional unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) of long range and duration of flight . These UAVs will be armed with both guided airborne weapons (AAS), used on front-line aircraft, and specialized ammunition. It is assumed that the new drones will be able to hit both stationary and mobile targets.

    Serial production will begin this year small-sized guided ASPs for shock UAVs . The development of these ammunition is already being completed, and their samples are already undergoing experimental military operation.

    Considerable attention is paid to the creation of land-based robotics. Thus, the newest robotic platform "Marker" will pass control tests , which will then be transferred to the RF Ministry of Defense.

    To equip the units of radiation, chemical and biological (RCB) protection, a multifunctional robotic complex MRK-RCBZ is being created , which will include ground-based robotic platforms and unmanned aerial vehicles. It will be able to carry out the whole range of works on conducting RCB reconnaissance. The robot will participate in eliminating the consequences of the use of weapons of mass destruction by the enemy in wartime, and in peacetime, the complex can be used in the event of accidents at RCB-hazardous facilities.
