Russia May Boast with at Least Six Super Weapons

Russia may boast with at least six weapons, which are even better than their western analogues. These innovative weapons are being delivered to the Russian Army under a Program scheduled to be completed by 2027 as stated by the Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov, quoted by the Russian newspaper Military-Industrial Courier, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.

The Russian military expert Konstantin Sivkov commented recently the situation saying that Russia has “excellent missile weapons, but the army has little of them,” and “the US weapons are worse, but the Army has many of them.”

The above mentioned advanced super weapons involve the strategic missile complex, launching intercontinental ballistic missiles “Sarmat”; the fifth generation jet fighter Su-57; the T-14 Armata main battle tank; the mobile surface-to-air missile/anti-ballistic missile system S-500; the mobile anti-satellite complex “Nudol”; and the mobile system for radio electronic jamming of satellite communications “Tirada-2S”.

Experts of the high-circulation daily broadsheet Russian newspaper “Izvestia” commented announcements in the Russian press that the strategic Tu-22M3 bombers will be equipped by 4 (per an aircraft) of the newest hypersonic missile “Kinzhal” (translated from Russian: “dagger”). The latter was presented by the president Vladimir Putin in March at a session of the Parliament.

The newspaper further clarified that the Kinzhal is an air-launched variant of the Iskander tactical surface to surface ballistic missile and that this option features a higher maximum speed and bigger range of up to 2000 km. Thus the capabilities of the Tu-22M3s will be highly increased in relation to long distance targets and thus zones, where the bombers are vulnerable to the hostile air defence, will be avoided. Experts explain that in this way Russia does not breach the agreement on the missiles of average and shorter range, limitting the manufacturing, testing and deployment of ground missiles with range from 500 to 2500 km.

“Izvestia” further explained, “Of course, the system is purely striking, but within the Russian military doctrine it has a defensive function. In case of a hypothetical collision between Russia and NATO on the European continent, the “daggers”, mostly in their non-nuclear option, are expected to become the major means of destroying the rear infrastructure of the Alliance by blocking the transfer of troops and equipment and impeding the command of the military actions.”

According to the newspaper the development and usage of similar weapons aims at “putting off as long as possible the moment when the only effective means of counteracting will be the use of nuclear weapons.” In regard to that the daily newspaper also pointed out that it would have been strange if there were not nuclear variants of the “daggers.”

On Wednesday (19 September), a meeting of the Military-Industrial Commission of the country was held, at which Russian President Vladimir Putin said his future vision for the development of the military industry in the country and perhaps a beginning of rearmament of the Russian military units with new weapons, learned BulgarianMilitary.com

“Russia must quickly move forward and begin developing perspective weapons. An important and key issue on our agenda is to define the beginning of the creation of yet another advanced state armament program and about the implementation of the current program – it is for the period until 2027 – we started this year, and this program takes into account the current global trends in terms of arms and combat equipment development and the combat experience gained from using Russian weapons in the Syrian Arab Republic.”

According to Putin, for the army of the Russian Federation must have been manufactured and deployed cutting-edge weapons that are superior to their foreign equivalents, mainly for their tactical and technical characteristics. According to Putin’s words, among them are the Sarmat missile system, the Su-57 fifth-generation fighter, the highly protected tank based on the Armata combat platform, and the S-500 air defence system and the project 677 submarine.

“For us it is important to move further and start planning today the future development and production of advanced weapons and equipment for the next few decades that will define the image of the Russian Armed Forces in the long-term”, the Russian President summarized.

Bulgarianmilitary.com recalls that Russia conducted in August and September, the largest military exercise for the last 40 years, with the participation of Mongolia and China – Vostok 2018. In it participated near 300,000 soldiers and approximately 1,000 Air Force units – fighter aircraft and helicopters. China sent to Vostok 2018 about 3,200 servicemen, more than 900 weapons, and 30 airplanes and helicopters.

The Largest Russian Military Exercise since 1981 Is Scheduled for September 2018

The Largest Russian Military Exercise since 1981 Is Scheduled for September 2018

MOSCOW, Russia (BulgarianMilitary.com), 29 August 2018, Editor: Galina Zdravkova, Photo credit: Sputnik/Mikhail Klementyev/Kremlin via REUTERS/Russian President Vladimir Putin, Defence Minister Sergey Shoygu and Commander of Western military district Colonel-General Andrey Kartapolov attend the Navy Day parade in St. Petersburg, Russia 29th July 29 2018.

The Minister of Defence of the Russian Federation Sergey Shoygu announced yesterday that next month Russia will conduct the largest military exercise East-2018 (Vostok-2018 in Russian) since 1981, learned BulgarianMilitary.com

The information was revealed by the Defence Minister at a meeting with reporters in the Republic of Khakassia, Siberia.

About 300,000 service members and over 1000 aircraft (airplanes, helicopters, and unmanned air vehicles) will participate in the manoeuvres East-2018, which will be carried out from 11th to 15th September.

Sergey Shoygu said, “In some aspects, they will repeat West-81 (Zapad-81 in Russian), but in others, they will be even on a larger scale. Over 1000 aircraft and almost 300,000 service members at almost all training areas of the Central and East Military Districts. Of course, the Pacific Fleet and the Northern Fleet will take part, and the Airborne Troops will be completely activated.”

Sergey Shoygu also commented that there have not been such large military exercises since 1981 when West-81 gathered the armies and navies of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact countries.

“Imagine 36,000 armoured vehicles – tanks, armoured personnel carriers and armoured infantry vehicles – moving and working simultaneously, and that all this, naturally, is being tested in conditions as close as possible to military ones,” said Shoygu.

Dylan White, NATO Press Officer / Editor, stated that the Alliance will monitor the East-2018 exercise and added that the details concerning that process are classified ‘secret’. Dylan White also said that the military attaches in Moscow of the NATO countries have been invited to watch the exercise and this option is being considered by the the North Atlantic Alliance.

Kasta 2-2 Radar Has Been Delivered to the Russian Central MD

Kasta 2-2 Radar Has Been Delivered to the Russian Central MD

MOSCOW, Russia (BulgarianMilitary.com), June 26, 2018, Author: Bm Team, Photo credit: ru.wikipedia.org

On 21st June 2018, the Ministry of Defence of Russia announced that a new Kasta 2-2 (Casta 2E2 or Kasta 2E2) all-round three-coordinate radar has been delivered to the Russian Central Military District’s (MD) air defence division in the Samara Region, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.

The 360 degree surveillance radar station Kasta 2-2 is a modern Russian radar system developed for air control. It defines the range, azimuth, flight level and specifications of aircraft and cruise missiles. Objects flying at low and extremely low altitudes, stealth targets and moving objects on the water surface are also detected by the Kasta 2-2. Stealth-technology air targets belong to the scope of that radar system thanks to its superior performance.

The Kasta 2-2 system consists of one antenna and three vehicles. One truck is used for the antenna and its peripheral equipment, a second truck is a command post vehicle, and a diesel-electric power plant is mounted on a third truck. Two single-axle trailers carry additional supporting equipment.

The antenna may be optionally installed on a standard 50 m pylon, which leads to displacement of the horizon of the radar and hence to increased detection altitude up to 6 km and distance of 150 km.

The development of the Kasta 2E system was initiated in the former Soviet Union for the purposes of low-level surveillance.
