    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...

For these purposes, over 70 large units and military formations have been set up, including two divisions and three brigades," Shoigu told the Defense Ministry’s board meeting.

    "About 5,000 new and modernized weapon systems have been delivered to the troops, which has helped to increase their provision with modern armament from 39% to 54%," the defense minister said.

    The necessary infrastructure is being created to accommodate troops and more than 350 facilities are expected to be put into operation until the end of the year, he noted.

    More than 350 surprise checks have been held in the Western Military District since 2016, which have shown "the qualitative growth of the troops’ preparedness level and confirmed their readiness for accomplishing assigned missions," the defense minister stressed.

    Sunday morning didn't start equally calm for everyone. The military stationed in the Volgograd and Rostov regions were alarmed. ...

    From the ground and from the air: on Prudboi, the battalions of the Southern Military District were up against each other (sorry Google translate).

    More than two thousand soldiers gathered at the Prudboy training ground in the Volgograd region to work out the skills of combat with the enemy. Today’s exercises have become unique in their own way - for the first time at the training grounds, the battalions of the Southern Military District trained on each other.

    Motorized riflemen in conjunction with tank and artillery units destroyed a total of about two thousand targets imitating aircraft, armored vehicles and the living force of a conditional enemy.

    According to Vadim Astafyev, the exercises at Prudboi will continue until the end of this week. They employ four thousand soldiers, a thousand weapons, combat and special equipment, including infantry fighting vehicles BMP-3, T-90A tanks, self-propelled artillery guns 2S19-M1, and armored personnel carriers BTR-80, as well as Su-24M front-line bombers and Mi-8 AMTSh and Mi-28 “Night Hunters” transport and assault helicopters.

    "Steel Monster".150th Idritsa-Berlin Motorized Rifle Division.

    The division is part of the 8th Combined Arms Army of South.Mil.Dist. (REACTIVATED in 2017). Russia finishes the re-activation of the legendary 150th "Idritsa-Berlin" Motorized Rifle Division with almost 300 tanks instead of the usual 190 tanks.

    Usual Russian motorized-rifle division has three motorized rifle 'polks' with 40 tanks each and one tank 'polk' (94 tanks). However, newly re-activated 150th 'Idritsa-Berlin' motor-rifle division will have TWO tank polks and two 'motostrelkovyy polks' with enforced tank battalion (around 50 tanks each instead of usual 40). Main tank: T-72B3. The total amount of tanks of the division: at least 268-288 tanks.
    Of course, the division will also have artillery and air defense polks (regiment), reconnaissance and communications battalions. Main air defense: mobile Tor-M2U.
    The flag of this division was put on Reichstag building in April 1945 and appears on each Victory Day military parade (a copy of it).

    Along with the recently reactivated "Black Knife Division" (off.name "10th Guards Uralsko-Lvovskaya Volunteer Tank Division"), the 150th Idritsa-Berlin should assist the DPR and LPR Republics in case of Ukraine's attack.

    Take this to mean the second Motor Rifle Regiment of the newly formed 150th Motor Rifle Division is now operational. Reports earlier were calling this unit the 103rd Motor Rifle Regiment and that it would be based at Kuzminsky. Training videos over the summer show the unit operating BMP-3's and T-72B3's.

    State tests of the Penicillin artillery reconnaissance complex have been successfully completed, the press service of the Ruselectronics holding (part of Rostec) told RIA Novosti.

    Delivery of the first two samples is scheduled for 2020.

    The Penicillin sound-thermal complex is designed to search for the firing positions of artillery guns, mortars, multiple launch rocket systems and the launch positions of anti-aircraft and tactical missiles while simultaneously adjusting the firing of their artillery.

    The complex is able to perform combat missions in a strip width of up to 25 kilometers. It consists of several sound receivers installed on the surface of the earth, as well as an optical-electronic module.

    The system receives and processes acoustic signals from shots (breaks) and provides information on the location of the ammunition rupture, the accuracy of the hit, and also reports the location of the guns. The time to obtain the coordinates of a single target does not exceed five seconds.

    "Penicillin" can carry out maintenance of shooting as one battery, and in turn each battery of a division. The installation also provides interaction with subscribers of an automated tactical and operational management system. Radio communication with external subscribers is up to 40 kilometers.

    Earlier, the American National Interest reported that Penicillin could become a new "way to destroy American heavy artillery." The author of the article writes that for detecting noise and kinetic energy, this detection system uses four sound-thermal locators, a large stabilization platform and an optical-electronic module.

    - About a third of that 570 total are tanks. The scheduled deliveries this year was for 62 T-80BVM and 31 T-90M/AM, the rest would be T-72B3. Present plans call for around 200 new modern tanks a year.
    - It is my experience that the 95% required personnel refers to that the formed units are 95% staffed...not 95% of the authorized Defense staff (1,013,628).
    - None of the 4 new Divisions formed have been completely formed up with their required units, staff and equipment yet.
    - Latest figure mentioned by Defense officials is around 830,000 active personnel (assume does not include military school cadets)

    My best guess would be:
    Ground Forces - 320,000
    Aerospace Forces - 165,000
    Navy - 150,000
    Rocket Forces - 60,000
    Airborne Forces - 45,000
    Railway / Construction Troops - 40,000
    General - 50,000
