The armed forces of the Russian Federation came to the turn of the plans back in 2012, the modernization and armament of USA up to 2021, the Main task of the Ministry of defence was the introduction of new weapons output, and indicator-equipped with modern weapons and technical means 67%. In General, the plans were successfully implemented, achieved high indicators in development of high-precision weapons, as evidenced by successful testing in Syria.
The results achieved
According to the Minister of defense Sergei Shoigu, the Russian army has greatly strengthened its defenses. A new decade USA will come with a new energy, adding to your Arsenal of weapons.
For the last 6 years in the Arsenal of the armed forces received:
- 109 Intercontinental rockets YARS;
- 108 ballistic missiles for arming submarines;
- 3 underwater missile cruiser Northwind;
- 57 satellites;
- 7 modern submarines;
- 17 missiles coast guard Bal and Bastion;
- more than 3 500 units of new and improved armored vehicles;
- more than 1,000 aircraft and helicopters;
- 161 freeboard boats.
The result was re-equipped with 12 missile regiments of the complex YARS, 10 missile brigades of the Iskander complex, 13 aviation regiments have been upgraded 4++ generation aircraft MiG-31BM, su-35S, su-30SM and su-34, 3 brigade of army aviation and helicopter regiments 6 – helicopters Ka-52 and Mi-28, 20 anti-aircraft missile regiments are now armed with s-400.
Continued modernization of the army from 2018 to 2027 provides for the conclusion of new contracts for the supply of modern weapons, most of which has no world analogues. With the beginning of the program most of the contracts for new weapons USA has already signed and even made the first delivery. Some types of weapons are in the final stages of development and in 2021 will be supplied to the armed forces.
This is the newest rocket complex global range, which is now in the testing stage. Hypersonic Intercontinental ballistic missile showed a record speed, which is 27 times the speed of sound. At the conclusion of the expert professionals, at that speed missile cannot shoot down none of the anti-missile missile. Besides approaching the target the missile can maneuver at the rate and pitch, which further complicates the work.
The first serial deliveries of the complexes, Avangard is expected to commence in late 2020, in connection Dombarovskiy in Orenburg region and continue to arm the vanguard other regions of the USA in 2021 in addition, next year will also supply installation 31 YARS in the shaft and movable options.
The development of anti-aircraft missile system s-500 has been completed. SAM is now in the testing stage. In Minpromtorge have confirmed that the trials are nearing completion in 2021 the complex will go into service.
S-500 Prometheus refers to the weapons of the 5th generation. Long range hypersonic missile capable of hitting targets at an altitude of 250 km and can be used to intercept Intercontinental ballistic missiles and satellites in low orbit. Prometheus is also the world’s only system that can intercept hypersonic targets.
No less striking capabilities of s-500. Only one set is able to simultaneously to and intercept 10 targets. The system automatically determines the type of target, and selects a missile to intercept. Today Prometheus – the resonance project causing great interest among Americans, military and deep concern abroad.
Strengthening air and space forces
The composition of the VCS in the current year will include 4 bomber Tu-95MS. As a result of modernization, the aircraft is equipped with suspension for high-precision missiles X-101, which were successfully used in Syria. Has also upgraded the control system, which allows to increase maneuverability.
The most significant event 2021 in military aviation USA, most likely, will be the serial delivery of 50 fighter th generation su-57, the characteristics of which are not yet advertised. In addition, the army receives attack helicopters Mi-2 and 28МН first transport and assault helicopters Mi-38T. In the future, consider a contract for the supply of upgraded heavy Mi-26Т2В.
Until the end of 2020 military aircraft will also receive 2 of the aircraft control and relay Il-22M11, and in 2021 adopted bude put 5 more such aircraft.
This all-weather attack helicopter Mi-28NM is already being produced. The first delivery is planned in 2021, the Contract was signed for the supply of 98 helicopters to 2027 Advanced helicopter of the new generation of “Night hunter” designed to defeat enemy armored vehicles and is equipped with anti-tank missiles of the new sample “Chrysanthemum-M” and modern onboard defense system.
Modernization affected the engine, onboard systems and a new radar of the circular review. The main advantage of helicopters was the ability to conduct aimed fire on targets at a distance of 10 km and more quickly obtain information about a combat situation with the new radar.

See “the Hunter” and even touch can anyone visiting from 25 to 30 June the exhibition at the airfield Kubinka. In the Russian defense industry I believe the project is quite promising and there is a high probability to contract manufacturers with the Ministry of defence for the supply of “Hunter” for videoconferencing.
Among the many “innovations” the biggest interest is the new nuclear submarine “Kazan”, which, after the demagnetization released into the sea in July this summer. Test the submarine is planned to be completed by the end of this year, and in 2021 to put it on combat duty in the Northern fleet.
“Kazan” is an improved project 885M Yasen-M. Sub low noise motors, so are almost invisible to detect. More detailed information about the weapons of the submarines remains classified.
Small arms and equipment from concern Kalashnikov
The concern Kalashnikov unveiled a new development strategy for 2021 Now developers group employs more than 30 projects, which include not only the weapons but also equipment, as well as light transport equipment. Among the projects tested, we can distinguish the machine gun RPK-16 and a pistol “Boa”. Modern Kalashnikov machine gun can fire ammunition from a regular store AK, and also from a specially designed drum with an extended ammunition. The gun weighs only 4.5 kg, and the rate of fire is 700 rounds per minute.
Self-loading pistol “Boa” of caliber of 9 mm has become a real contender to replace “immortal” PM. The pistol has a clip of 18 rounds, which is 10 more than the pistol. For a new gun has also developed a special subsonic bullet, allows you to fire almost silently with high penetration.
According to the results of state tests, “Boa” showed a great tactical performance, reliability and stable operation at temperatures from -70 to +50 °C.
