    In MIC offered to halve the request for a new military weapons

    The new ten-year state program of armaments (LG-2025) does not require such a large expenditure, as the present, covering the period from 2011 to 2020. On it informs "Interfax" referring to a source in the Military-Industrial Commission.

However, according to him, the future is sufficient to enter the "real rate of reproduction", allowing only maintain this level, which is in line with those in the leading armies of the world.

    At a presentation for journalists in Kazan on Wednesday, Russian radio-electronics firm Radio-Electronic Technologies Concern (KRET) announced that it is handing over the first batch of a new helicopter-mounted electronic warfare system known as the 'Richag-AV' to the armed forces. The Richag-AV system, mounted on the Mi-8MTPR1 (a variant of the Mi-8MTB5-1 helicopter) is said to have no global equivalent. Its electronic countermeasures system is designed to jam radar, sonar and other detection systems in the aims of defending aircraft, helicopters, drones, ground and naval forces against air-to-air and surface-to-air defense systems within a radius of several hundred kilometers. It can be mounted on units from any branch of the armed forces, including helicopters and airplanes, as well as ground and ship-based forces.
    The Mi8-MTPR1-based Richag-AV platform, using multi-beam antenna arrays with DRFM technology, is designed to actively jam and thus 'blind' radar systems in order to defend against radio-electronic guided weapons systems. In a combat situation, the system would operate as part of an aviation shock attack group aimed at breaking through virtually any defense system, blinding everything up to and including the US MIM-104 'Patriot' anti-aircraft missile system.
    Rossiyskaya Gazeta explained that in addition to working as a signal jamming system, Richag-AV is capable of carrying out radar-based intelligence gathering, which involves the finding of foreign sources of electromagnetic radiation. With an onboard database on different types of military installations, the system is capable of quickly determining the type of target, thus allowing it to jam it effectively. Reporters in Kazan were informed that the Russian armed forces received three Mi-8MTPR-1 helicopters equipped with the Richag-Av on Wednesday, and will receive a total of 18 such systems by October 2016, at a total cost of 11.5 billion rubles ($186 million).
    The system's predecessor, the 'Smalta' jamming system, was developed back in the 1970s, and featured a 100 km radius; in its own time the system was considered among the most effective in the world. Alongside the Richag-AV, the Russian military is presently being equipped with other electronic warfare systems, including the L-175B Hibini air and 1L269 Krasuha-2 and 1L267 Moskva-1 ground-based electronic warfare systems.
    KRET is Russia's largest radio-electronic industrial holding; it was created in 2009. The company is involved in the development and production of radio-electronic equipment in the civil and military aviation sphere, as well as air-based radar systems, electronic warfare systems, and a variety of precision instrumentation.

    Great article on Moscow SOBR "Bulat" in honor of their 22nd anniversary: http://vk.com/alexei_zhigulin?w=wall85927713_3093%2Fall


    Marines and special forces troops to hold record number of parachute jumps this year:


    This year, the military compounds Marines and Special Forces Eastern Military District stationed in the Primorsky and Khabarovsk, Kamchatka, the Trans-Baikal territories, Republic of Buryatia and the Sakhalin region will make a total of over 15,500 jumps. This is a record number in the last decade. For example, last year, the military made about 12 thousand jumps.
    More here: http://function.mil.ru/news_page/cou...2009253@egNews

    15,500... Is it really necessary to place so much emphasis on parachute jump training, instead of maybe jumping less and placing more emphasis on combat training?

    Almaz-Antei Air Defense Concern has delivered three batteries of the new S-300V4 system to the Russian military, which expects to deploy the new system in the Western Military District, according to a source in the Ministry of Defense. The new system, designed between 2012-2014, is a modernized version of the S-300V3, with elements from versions of the S-300V Antei-2500 which were produced for export. It includes new, more advance computational components, which have expanded its range by 100 km (to 400 km), as well as its anti-missile defensive umbrella's effectiveness.The new system, designed between 2012-2014, is a modernized version of the S-300V3, with elements from versions of the S-300V Antei-2500 which were produced for export.

The Air Defense Forces received their first S-300V4 brigade in December 2014; the military had conducted successful testing of the new systems before that.
    Military specialists estimate that the new system is 1.5-2.3 times more effective in its anti-missile defense capabilities. In addition to offering cruise and short-range tactical ballistic missile defense, the defensive system is capable of targeting medium-range ballistic missiles launched from a distance of up to 2,500 km away.
    The military's contract with Almaz-Antei calls for the provision of nine S-300V4 brigades by 2020.
