    Let's just say that i won't do a worse job than Rogozin's son. I won't steal for starters.
    Kurganmash got into problems because part of the money for Boomerang was stolen by director general and few people around him.

    The Ground Forces told which weapons perform best in the NWO



    All models of weapons of the Ground Forces of the RF Armed Forces, previously tested in practice during the military operation in Syria, are now successfully used on the fields of a special operation to protect the Donbass. As the commander-in-chief of this type of armed forces, General of the Army Oleg Salyukov, noted, the equipment fully confirms the high tactical and technical characteristics laid down by the developers.

    “There is no longer any doubt that the Iskander-M missile system is still the best complex in its class in the world and is capable of using both ballistic missiles and cruise missiles from one launcher, leaving no chance for the enemy within a radius of up to 500 km,” he said.

    Among other things, this RK is secretive, mobile and has a huge modernization potential that will allow it to bypass foreign designs for many more years.

    During the special operation, according to the commander-in-chief, almost the entire main type of armament of the military air defense is used. The greatest performance to date has been demonstrated by modern anti-aircraft missile systems S-300V4, Buk-M2 (M3) and Tor-M2 (M2U).

    “The results of the use of military air defense systems confirm that the greatest burden of covering troops during the operation lies with medium and short-range air defense systems,” the military leader said.

    Efficiency in the fight against drones and multiple launch rocket systems of the enemy is shown by the S-300V (B4) air defense systems, the Buk-MZ (M2) and Tor-M2 (M2U, M2DT) air defense systems. In those cases when it is necessary to deal with suddenly appearing air targets at low and extremely low altitudes, Russian fighters turn to the Igla and Verba MANPADS, with the help of which a significant part of the manned aircraft of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was eliminated.

    “Analysis of the air defense command and control system for groupings of troops, created on the basis of the Polyana-D4M1 and Barnaul-T automated weapon control tools from the ESU TK, confirmed its effectiveness and the ability to control air defense forces and means in real time,” noted commander-in-chief.

    The use of complexes with unmanned aerial vehicles helps to successfully complete tasks in the situation of modern combat. The Ground Forces use small and light reconnaissance systems with short-range and short-range UAVs, as well as short and medium flight duration. Among them, Orlan-10, Orlan-30 and Eleron-3 have proven themselves well.

    Samples of armored weapons also distinguished themselves by high efficiency, according to Salyukov.

    “For the first time in combat conditions, the T-90M Proryv-3 tanks are used, which have a commander’s panoramic sight, which allows the commander to assess the situation on the battlefield on the same level as the gunner-operator. At the same time, this sight is combined with a remote machine-gun mount, which allows the commander to fire from his workplace at the enemy’s manpower, both from the spot and on the move, regardless of the work of the gunner-operator, ”explained the commander-in-chief of the Ground Forces.

    In addition, tank support combat vehicles (BMPT) are successfully used during the NMD, which have the same level of protection and mobility as tanks and powerful multifunctional weapons, including two twin 30-mm automatic guns, an anti-tank system with four Ataka supersonic missiles and two automatic grenade launcher.

    “In addition, the protected Typhoon-K vehicles and the models of weapons and military equipment created on their chassis show high efficiency in combat conditions. For example, the use of protected Lens ambulances during a special military operation, which are designed to evacuate the wounded from the battlefield under enemy fire, made it possible to save a large number of soldiers and officers.

    And, of course, the new-generation Ratnik combat equipment sets, which allow the Ground Forces to preserve the life and health of personnel, serve faithfully to the soldiers on the front line. This equipment is not inferior to the best foreign analogues in terms of general indicators, and in terms of the degree of protection it is much superior to them, covering 1.3 times the area of ​​vital organs with 1.25 times less weight. ■

    This is just my opinion and does not represent or mean anything more than that..
    I expect a massive rearmament of the Russian army to the following new systems..I will not include vehicles like the Typhoon-VDV K-4386 in the list because it is obvious that their delivery has already started in large numbers. The same applies to T-90M, T-80BVM, BMP-3, BMD-4, etc.

    Russia's next generation of equipment - the Armatas, Kurganets, Bumerangs, etc. are almost ready for serial production.

    I suspect they'd have the industry ramp up finishing the last batches of modernized vehicles and then they'll switch over rapidly to the new builds just to maintain and expand their qualitative edge over NATO.

    I am sure there will be lessons to be learned from this current conflict they can apply, but I also think overall even their older generation systems seem to be doing rather well... it is clear that reliable and durable are more critical that all out range...

    Those M777 probably weren't built for the long range shells they are getting from the west as a normal diet.

    The 2S43 it seems to me makes rather more sense because although the gun will be heavier than the M777 gun, the actual system that includes the prime mover means the difference in weight is meaningless.

    Moving the M777 when it is separated from its prime mover means a lighter gun is easier, but it seems its light weight has come at serious costs... their artillery is designed for parades and long range shooting records... not for pounding the target with enormous volumes of shells.

    I would guess the 2S43 is all round better... faster to set up faster to move, just as mobile... anyone who has towed a trailer with a car knows what a pain in the arse trailers can be when doing anything other than going forward... the 2S43 has no trailer.

    I would say weight is irrelevant and setting up and taking down time and range and reliability and durability are the important factors and being affordable too.

    You can't carry a 2S43 up a goat track or land it by helicopter up a side of a mountain but considering the range of these new guns you probably don't need to.

    I would think the Russian government will need to focus on their Navy though perhaps further work on 180km 152mm guided HE rounds as well as perhaps work on a 203mm calibre out to 200 or 250km would be useful on land and at sea.

    They are in the process of introducing lots of very new stuff and some things might get last minute changes or be part of their first upgrade for the future, but I think their existing stuff has shown itself to be pretty damn good... especially air defence stuff.

    I would say the introduction of SOSNA and even the new HE Kornet-EMs for use against drones would be rather interesting too.

    And Ratnik III in two years time.... (2025).

    I suspect they are finding lots of useful things about using very long ranged sniper rifles too.

    Certainly artillery that can roll up to a position, drop a spade and fire a few rounds and lift that spade and drive off are going to be useful... especially if they can be paired with anti drone radars and perhaps lasers missiles or guns or all three...

    Tank carriers in Ukraine: invisible heroes of the NWO

    Workers of the military arteries

    A tank carrier has many roles at the front. He is engaged in the evacuation of damaged equipment, transfers reserves, and ensures the prompt redeployment of armored vehicles. In addition to the realities of the Russian special operation, tank carriers have a special role. The Ukrainian front is several thousand kilometers of steppe, forests, dirt and highways. To transfer tanks and infantry fighting vehicles on their own over such distances is long and expensive.

    First of all, a scarce resource of engines, transmission and chassis is consumed. Secondly, long hauls under their own power require a considerable amount of fuel and cause unnecessary fatigue of the crews. That is why the conduct of maneuverable combat operations without tank carriers is nowhere.

    For the transportation of lightly armored vehicles, any army truck tractor is suitable. If you have to scoop out everything that is from storage, then the well-deserved ZIL-131V will go into action. In the end, the already forgotten 9K55 Grad-1 on an all-wheel drive Zilovsky chassis were transferred to the NVO zone, so why not use the potential of truck tractors? True, it is recommended to load no more than 12 tons into a semi-trailer, but the "motorbike", for example, fits perfectly into this form factor. But while the ZIL-131V has not been seen in Ukraine, it means that everything is in order with tank carriers in the Russian army.

    The next truck tractor in the ranking list is the Ural-44202, which, coupled with the ChMZAP trawl, is capable of transporting infantry fighting vehicles. Similar tasks are performed by KamAZ-4410, the first all-wheel drive tractor from Naberezhnye Chelny.

    But this technique also belongs to the category of mobilization reserve and is not used in the NWO. The three-axle KamAZ-53504, which can handle semi-trailers weighing 23 tons, can be considered a modern version of a tractor still of Soviet origin. The KamAZ-6450 truck tractor with an 8x8 wheel arrangement is much more adapted to the realities of Ukraine. This rather big car is equipped with a 360-400 hp boosted diesel engine. With. and can pull a semi-trailer with a gross weight of up to 26 tons.

    Judging by experience, a four-axle tractor will take the tank away, but the BMP-3 is still the main customer. Like all other armored vehicle transporters, KamAZ-6450 has a high maximum speed (up to 80 km / h) and a rather large power reserve - up to 1,000 km. The all-wheel drive chassis allows the trawls to be driven along wet dirt roads, but the crew of the armored vehicle is forced to while away the road at their workplaces.

    In general, there are practically no specially designed tank carriers in the Russian army, and thoroughly revised versions of civilian tractors are usually used. This, for example, was one of the most common tank transporters - KamAZ-65225.

    Despite the fact that this is an all-wheel drive vehicle, the two rear axles of the tractor are dual-slope, which can significantly increase the load on the saddle. The tank carrier has a 400-horsepower engine and a gross train weight of 75 tons. "Armata", of course, will not be dragged away, but for the T-72, T-80, T-90, the safety margin is enough. The big minus of such a tank carrier is its low cross-country ability.

    Firstly, the dual-slope rear axles interfere, and secondly, the diesel engine is not the most productive for a 75-ton machine. But in Ukraine it is still the most common tank carrier. This is favored by weather conditions and a developed road network. Partially, the off-road problem is solved by the KamAZ-65221 tank carrier, whose rear axles are already single-sided. Only now such a tractor transports tanks is already at the limit - the total mass of the semi-trailer does not exceed 51 tons. The machine is also used for the needs of the special operation.

    Russian tank carriers in Ukraine do not live by KamAZ alone. In the class of carriers of light armored vehicles - BAZ-6402 Voshchina-1, the main purpose of which is to transport S-400 systems. The car is harsh - six wheels on torsion bar suspensions, a 9-speed manual gearbox, a 470-horsepower YaMZ diesel engine and a thirteen-meter turning radius at once. Such a hitch will not be able to carry tanks - the mass of the semi-trailer should not exceed 30 tons.

    Completely in a different category is the Bryansk four-axle heavy truck BAZ-6403.01, capable of pulling a trawl weighing 70 tons. The total mass of the road train pulls 90 tons. Theoretically, the Bryansk tractor can deliver the 55-ton "Armata" to Ukraine. The car is rather big - 3 meters high, 9.9 meters long. The tractor was originally developed for the needs of the Almaz-Antey VKO concern, but is successfully used by tankers, including in Ukraine.

    What if you dream?

    What is missing for domestic tank carriers? First of all, an armored cabin. The queen of fighting in Ukraine is artillery with ubiquitous fragments and ready-made lethal elements. This adds serious risks to drivers in the frontline zone.

    Back in 2016, there was hope for a solution to this problem - a four-axle Ural-6308 Tornado-U was developed in Miass. Everything is fine with this tank carrier - a double armored cab, which will comfortably accommodate the tank crew, and three single-axles at the rear, which at the same time increase the cross-country ability and the load on the saddle.

    The motor was predicted to be 550-600-horsepower, which significantly increased the specific power of the machine. Especially in relation to predecessors. Do not forget about the luxurious independent spring agenda of the rear - "Armata" will not be rocked on potholes. The last axle was designed to be swivel, which made it possible, with the proper ability to maneuver in urban conditions. The very first prototype, however, was equipped with Hungarian bridges, a German automatic transmission, and the YaMZ engine was licensed from Renault.

    One of the most important directions in the development of heavy tank transport is the development of tractors capable of taking a couple of tanks on a trawl. If not a couple, then at least a tank in the company with an infantry fighting vehicle. The Belarusian heroes of the MZKT have been able to do this for a long time, until recently they were in good demand. For example, the UAE willingly bought tank carriers and carried their BMP-3s with Leclerc on them.

    Up to a certain point, Russia had a choice - either to become dependent on Belarus and buy not only rocket carriers, but also tank transporters, or independently develop an analogue. This is how the KAMAZ (more precisely, the developer was Remdiesel) Platform-O appeared - the largest and most expensive of the programs for the development of army wheeled vehicles in recent years. Two chassis - K-7350 and K-78504 - were potentially capable of competing with Minsk vehicles.

    The scheme in Naberezhnye Chelny was chosen as an exotic one with a diesel generator and motor wheels. In fact, the tractors were designed from scratch. Did not work out. And the technical stuffing did not hold out, and the prototypes themselves turned out to be overweight.

    Now the Minsk Design School will become the locomotive for the development of domestic tank carriers. History repeats itself - it was the special design bureau of MAZ after the war that became the ancestor of the entire Soviet line of heavy wheeled vehicles.

    Bridges that are damaged ( permanently and beyond repair by Ukraine attack and temporarily and repairable by Russia attack ) like the Crimea Bridge of Road and Rail , can have temporary solutions that allow passage of traffic adequately , without being permanent fixes . Permanent fixes take longer , and more sections of Bridges can be destroyed . Therefore having floating and connecting Road Bridges for vehicles , like " U" shaped barges , will bypass damaged sections easily . Many can be built and saved , for a rainy day for just before advances need to be made . Same with Rail bridges , but connecting sections , need to be Rail sections on floats or barges that are fixed into position on Sea- bed , after removing damaged section . Repair should take a few hours or be immediate , while troops are passing . All important bridges for offensives , should have emergency repair plan .

    I noticed things looked a bit different when logged in today.

    Anyway, a reply to your post is that there a trons of articles about Ukraines counter attacks or upcoming ones. A lot is speculation while there are existing ones going on. In either case, no one is worried honestly. Russian intel far better than ours

    Putin awarded the 232nd Rocket Artillery Brigade the title of "guards"

    Russian President Vladimir Putin awarded the 232nd Rocket Artillery Brigade the honorary title "Guards". The relevant decree was published on October 31 on the official Internet portal of legal information.

    "To give the 232nd Rocket Artillery Brigade the honorary name "Guards" and henceforth to refer to it as the 232nd Guards Rocket Artillery Brigade, " the document says.

    It is noted that the brigade was awarded the title "Guards" for " mass heroism and bravery, perseverance and courage shown by the brigade's personnel in combat operations to protect the Fatherland and state interests in armed conflicts."

    The decree comes into force from the date of its signing.

    On October 17, Putin gave the name "Guards" to the 400th self-propelled artillery Transylvanian Red Banner, Order of Bogdan Khmelnitsky regiment.

    In late July, the President of the Russian Federation awarded the 488th motorized rifle Regiment named after Sergo Ordzhonikidze the honorary title "Guards". In the same month, Putin signed a decree granting the honorary title "Guards" to the 80th tank regiment of the Red Banner.

    Russia's special operation to protect the Donbass region, whose residents refused to recognize the results of the 2014 coup d'etat in Ukraine, continues. The decision to hold it was made on February 24 against the background of the aggravated situation in the region due to the frequent shelling of Ukrainian troops.

    Kalashnikov will increase the production of missiles, UAVs and artillery shells in 2023

    According to the president of the concern Alan Lushnikov, the expansion of the company's staff is planned for next year.

    MOSCOW, November 2. /TASS/. The Kalashnikov Concern has laid down an increase in the production program for 2023 for small arms, high-precision weapons, artillery shells and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). This was announced to journalists on Wednesday by the president of the concern Alan Lushnikov.

    "When we planned 2022 under the conditions of 2021, we initially planned to increase the production program for small arms by 40%. And I can say that next year we are planning a further increase, I don't want to give numbers, but we are planning an increase in the production program for all our products. Let me remind you: these are small arms, and precision weapons - missiles, and artillery shells, these are also unmanned aerial vehicles - growth is going on in all directions," he said.
    Lushnikov added that the next year is planned to expand the staff of the concern. "We recruit people all the time," he said. "But it's not a secret, and all defense enterprises, it can be assumed, are working in this mode now."

    Earlier, the concern reported on the increase in the production of small arms by 40% this year. In addition, already in September, the group reached the level of actual sales of civilian weapons for export, equal to the entire indicator for 2021.

    Concern "Kalashnikov" (part of the state corporation "Rostec") is the largest Russian manufacturer of combat automatic and sniper weapons. It is the flagship of the domestic small arms industry, it accounts for about 95% of the production of small arms in Russia. Products are supplied to more than 27 countries of the world.

    YEKATERINBURG, January 3rd. /TASS/. Over 150 new 3-STS armored vehicles were first delivered to the troops of the Central Military District (TsVO) in the Urals, Siberia and the Volga region in 2022. This was reported in the press service of the district on Tuesday.

    "A batch of more than 150 units of three-axle 3-STS armored vehicles was delivered to the troops of the Central Military District in 2022. Armored cars entered service with motorized rifle formations and military units of the Central Military District stationed in the regions of the Urals, Siberia and the Volga region," the message says.

    Also, the troops of the district received a version of the 3-STS performed for medical units.

    The Z-STS armored car is designed to transport personnel and military cargo under enemy fire. The armor protection of the vehicle provides protection for the crew, passengers and cargo from bullets up to and including heavy machine guns, shell fragments and mines.

    A great article on how the Russian army didnt a learn a thing from syrian tank losses due to lack of combined arms and obsession with an armored fist tactic.

    In syria, the SAA tried using tanks as an armored fist attacking before the infantry, and took very heavy losses. The syrians then learned, and started putting troops in front of tanks and tanks were there for fire support using shoot and scoot
    tactics. Meanwhile the russians did exactly the same mistake as the syrians in 2022, using tanks unsupported by infantry when advancing into the ukraine, and had relearn combined arms from scratch.
    https://t.me/bayraktar1070/684

    Since we are talking about the use of tanks on the battlefield, let's fast forward 7 years ago. On October 8, 2015, social networks rejoiced: “Government forces advanced 70 km north of the city of Hama in a day and liberated the city of Kafr Nabuda.”

    Russia officially fought in Syria for a little over a week. The Russian advisers, having developed a plan, concentrated an armored fist on the plains of Hama and decided to crush the enemy's Latamin bridgehead with one throw. To be honest, the official reports poorly reflected reality. There was no question of any advancement of 70 km. This offensive turned into a rout (Kafr Naboudou will be released only in 2019). American TOW systems destroyed a lot of Syrian armor, which led to the surrender of the city of Murek and a number of other villages. Even then it was necessary to realize that the Soviet dogma "Tank wedges to the English Channel" was outdated.

    The Syrians in subsequent years (largely without our participation) rethought the meaning of the tank on the battlefield and began to act effectively. In open spaces, the platoon received a tank under its command. The infantrymen went forward, identified enemy firing points and called in their armor to destroy them. The soldiers went ahead of the tanks, which significantly reduced the loss of vehicles on the plains.

    In the cities, tactics changed. Each tank had its own ground gunner. He hung a copter over an armored vehicle and contacted the infantry. The gunner, seeing the whole picture of the battle, literally told the tankers to turn the barrel to the right by 30 degrees and put 3 shells in the next entrance. Such interaction made it possible to break through the enemy's fortifications even in close Arab buildings.

    As I have repeatedly said, the Syrian experience taught us nothing, so on February 24, armored columns went forward, which had practically no connection with the infantrymen. The losses of those days can be judged by numerous videos on enemy resources.

    Now the Russian army has to gnaw through enemy defenses in depth, so the meaning and use of the tank on the battlefield must be rethought. Stop stepping on a rake and throwing armored fists forward. We already have enough examples of successful offensives.

    I was in the spring near Izyum. They tried to liberate the fucking Kamenka with tank strikes ... As a result, this tactic completely failed and the special forces cleared the village on foot. The Wagners, which have been talked about so much lately, are also advancing in small groups of infantry. Neither Popasnaya nor Soledar were taken head-on by a tank attack.

    So what should be done? Firstly, abandon the tactics of tank breakthroughs. Secondly, each tank must be assigned a ground gunner. He must ensure coordination between the steel monster and the infantry. Thirdly, each tank must lead its own copter. The cost of such innovations will be minimal compared to the cost of machines, and efficiency will increase significantly.

    Another simp with a Telegram channel talking rubbish. If he was there, then he knows better then me - he's just fishing for ratings with some rad, critical take on things on purpose.

    The territory was advanced through and successfully occupied in the first days of the war. A whole lot of it in fact, at a very fast pace.
    Creeping forward methodically with foot infantry ahead of tanks checking out each village along the way was not an option, and would not have met the goals of the operation - which could be summarized in the need to surround Kiev within days with a mind to destabilize the Ukrainian regime, relieve the VDV forces earlier deployed by air to take Gostomel, and take advantage of the element of surprise in other directions as well such as the Kharkov and Kherson axis.

    Mytishchi plant began to ship tracked vehicles for air defense systems under the State Defense Order for 2023 and 2024
    As the general director of the enterprise Sergey Kozlov noted, the repair teams of the plant ensure the serviceability of the equipment participating in the special operation in Ukraine

    MOSCOW, January 18. /TASS/. Mytishchi Machine-Building Plant (MMZ, part of the Kalashnikov Concern) began to manufacture and ship tracked vehicles for the Buk-M3 and Tor-M2 anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM) under contracts under the state defense order for 2023 and 2024. This was reported on Wednesday in the press service of the concern.

    "The plant timely and in full fulfilled the contractual obligations of the 2022 State Defense Order tasks for the supply of property to the prime contractors of state contracts.

    "Today, the enterprise continues to work under contracts with prime contractors for the supply of spare parts for tracked chassis in 2023-2024. A contract has been signed with the prime contractor for the overhaul of crawler chassis," the concern added.

    At the Army-2022 forum, MMZ for the first time demonstrated a new and improved line of tracked armored vehicles for various air defense systems. In the demonstration center of the Kalashnikov concern, one could see models of tracked vehicles GM-59955.15-01, designed to transport and provide power to the equipment and equipment of the combat vehicle of the Tor-M2 air defense system, GM-569B-01 for the Buk-M air defense system, GM-5969-01 for the Buk-M3 air defense system, as well as a special hull wheeled chassis for the Tor-M2K complex.

    Does russia create units entirely of mobilized, or put mobilized in existing units initially consisting of only volunteers? What would be the pluses and minuses of each way?

    Come on, man.    Combined arms warfare  is what Russian invented  it was in their field manuals already in the 30's.  

    By 1944 it was pretty much in stone.   Infantry was the main unit all other units be it tanks artillery or air  support where subservient/nor could function without infantry.   Even support troops of infantry behind the initial attack phase of infantry-combined force assault. Were used as a additional multiplier while say Blitzkrieg used them to secure direct freshly acquired land in the rear

    Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu replaced the commanders of two military districts. It is reported by RBC with reference to sources.

    According to the publication, the Southern Military District (SMD) will be headed by Colonel General Sergei Kuzovlev, and Lieutenant General Yevgeny Nikiforov will command the Western Military District (ZVO).

    Kuzovlev from November 2020 to February 2021 commanded a group of troops of the Russian armed forces in Syria , and before that - units of the Western and Southern military districts.

    Since 2020, Nikiforov has been Chief of Staff - First Deputy Commander of the Eastern Military District, and before that - Deputy Commander of the Western Military District.

    On January 11, Sergei Shoigu changed the leadership of the special military operation (SVO) in Ukraine : he appointed Chief of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces Valery Gerasimov as commander of the combined group of Russian troops in the NVO zone, and Commander-in-Chief of the Aerospace Forces of the Russian Federation Sergey Surovikin , Commander-in-Chief of the Ground Forces Oleg Salyukov and Deputy Chief of the General Staff Aleksey Kima became his deputies in this position.

    Earlier it was also reported that the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation signed an order defining the procedure for social payments to citizens called up as part of the mobilization. According to the appendix to the document, monthly social payments to the mobilized will have to be made from the day they are appointed to a military position until the day they are released from it, inclusive.

    @Garry
    Sergei Shilov and Aleksandar Harchenko from RIA Novosti are behind that channel. Probably among 5 best known Russian war correspondents.
    Considering your involvement with this forum for such a long time, your ignorance about Russia is appalling.
    Stop reading western sources and learn some Russian. 😉
