    A monument to the Hero of Russia pilot Oleg Peshkov was erected at the Khmeimim airbase

    A monument to the Su-2015 pilot Oleg Peshkov, who died in 24, was erected at the Russian Khmeimim airbase in Syria. This was announced by Rear Admiral Igor Kurochkin, Deputy Commander of the Russian Armed Forces Grouping in Syria for Military-Political Work.

    The opening of the monument to the pilot of the front-line bomber Su-24 Oleg Peshkov was timed to coincide with the holiday on February 23. It was installed next to the already standing monuments to the helicopter pilot Ryafagat Khabibulin, who died in 2016 during the liberation of Palmyra, and to the pilot of the Su-25SM attack aircraft, Roman Filipov, who was shot down over Idlib.

    During a working trip to the troops (forces) Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation General of the Army Dmitry Bulgakov arrived in Abakan, Republic of Khakassia, where he checked the logistics of the 5th separate Poznan Red Banner Railway Brigade. The Deputy Minister examined the fleet of automotive and special equipment, the conditions of its storage, maintenance and readiness to perform the tasks set.

    "Based on the decision of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief and Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, the Railway troops this year begin construction of the second branch of the Baikal-Amur railway. All ten brigades are leaving for the construction of the section that is currently assigned to the Railway troops from Ulak to Fevralsk-340 km. On the fifth day, the fifth brigade begins to enter the specified area. We must build the second branch of the Baikal-Amur Mainline, " the deputy head of the military department said at a meeting with journalists.

    On behalf of the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, at a solemn ceremony, Army General Dmitry Bulgakov presented the 5th separate Railway Poznań Red Banner Brigade with the Regimental Cup of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

    This badge of military valor was awarded to the brigade for high combat training, selfless military work in the performance of special tasks for the construction of railways, the elimination of the consequences of natural disasters and catastrophes.

    "I am proud to note that the 5th separate Railway Brigade was awarded this badge of military valor, the first in the history of the Railway troops, among the military units and formations of material and technical support of the Armed Forces as a whole! Today, the 5th Brigade is rightfully the flagship of the Railway Troops!»- said the Deputy Minister of Defense, speaking at the award ceremony.

    After visiting the museum of the railway brigade, the Deputy Minister of Defense made a memorable entry in the historical form of the military unit about the presentation of the Regimental Cup of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

    I think this fits in this thread. It is a comparison of before and after of the Russian army. The transformation is impressive.
    NATzO does not have any sort of supremacy that matters over Russia. Maybe it can throw more meat, but that does very little
    with modern hardware. And in terms of hardware Russia has a substantial advantage to the point that NATzO itself is worried.

    The quality of life of Russian servicemen has improved substantially since 2008. Compared to 1990 it is on another plane.

    I will take issue with the this video about the situation in the 1990s. It is not correct that nothing but rot was happening
    under Yeltsin. If that was true, then we would have seen the same situation as in Ukraine. That was the plan of the Yeltsin's
    NATzO handlers, but it flopped. Russian defense industry workers continued to develop new missiles and other tech even
    under conditions of massive wage arrears. These patriots ensured that there was a revival under Putin. So credit cannot
    be given for post 1999 conditions alone.

    NATO was afraid of Russia even back in 2008, when a bunch of army units with equipment from the 70´s and 80´s needed less then 72 hours to annihilate a NATO trained, equipped and certified georgian army.

    The syrian campaign was another eye opener for them. But todays russian army is even better then the one in 2015.

    What´s really frightening for NATO is the fact that the russian forces are still in a transistion process. All the stuff being tested and coming up in the next few years... Twisted Evil

    Russia’s top brass to set up Artificial Intelligence Department

    According to the member of the government’s Military-Industrial Commission, the department would start functioning from next year

    SEVASTOPOL, May 31. /TASS/. Russia’s Defense Ministry will set up an Artificial Intelligence Department with its own budget by the end of this year, Mikhail Osyko, a member of the government’s Military-Industrial Commission, said on Monday.

    "I can say that the Defense Ministry has made a decision to set up an Artificial Intelligence Department… All these measures should be completed by December 1 this year. Correspondingly, a customer for artificial intelligence will begin functioning in the Defense Ministry from next year," Osyko said at a conference on artificial intelligence being held as part of the International Industrial Forum in Sevastopol.

    The Artificial Intelligence Department will have its own spending and deal with the tasks similar to the competencies of the Defense Ministry’s Department for Advanced Inter-Discipline Research, he noted.

    "I believe that this will be a tremendous breakthrough we should take advantage of if we manage to launch this effort, carry out work and introduce results. The Defense Ministry will be a good engine in this process, especially from the viewpoint of practical application, something that is missing today," the expert added.

    The Ministry of Defense said it would not be allowed to use imported smartphones in military units

    MOSCOW, June 18. / TASS /. The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation will never agree to the use of foreign-made cell phones on the territories of its military units. This was reported to TASS by the deputy head of the Department of Information Systems of the military department, Major General Alexander Osadchuk on the sidelines of the international exhibition "Svyaz-2021".

    "We will never allow the use of imported cell phones on the territory of a military unit," he said, stressing that the Defense Ministry has very serious restrictions related to information security.

    “We understand perfectly well that this is a source of leaks, this is a serious danger, a threat. Unfortunately, we will never agree to this,” Osadchuk said.

    In 2019, amendments to the law "On the status of military personnel" were adopted, which explicitly prohibit the military in the service from having consumer electronics with them with the ability to access the Internet.


    Earlier, Osadchuk said that the Russian Ministry of Defense, on the basis of the Era military technopolis, is developing domestically produced smartphones and mobile applications for military personnel and their families for daily activities on the territory of military units.

    It is just basic common sense.... it is like that stupid British minister of defence... the young one who was in parliament and was interrupted by his Apple phone... during one of his speeches it asked to clarify a word he said .... he was the British Minister of Defence and his Apple iphone was listening to everything he said... good god.... and there were a few comments but nobody got fired...

    Their communications security bureau should be fired... there is no way such a device should be allowed in Parliament let alone be owned by the defence minister and presumably taken to every meeting he went to.... that is crazy...

    The 1990s onwards western intel just got super fat and super lazy... no wonder Putin and Xi are pissing all over them... they truly are morons.

    New Kamaz and other vehicles for the Russian army. Video shows the assembly line for Kamaz trucks. No evidence of any lag in
    production technology compared with the rest of the world. Russian trucks remain world leading products.

    The video notes that key components such as the armoured tires, the electrical and electronic systems, the engines and the metal used in these
    vehicles is all domestic. These are not kit assemblies from imported products.

    The video also shows the refurbishment of BMPs. This includes the total gutting of existing BMPs and replacing the engines and electrical system
    as well as adding modern equipment. This is not a Banderastan put the junk on the road operation.
