    "
    MOSCOW, December 11 (RIA Novosti) – The Russian army should focus on the acquisition of robotic weaponry and reduce its overall number of different types of military equipment in use, a deputy prime minister said Wednesday.

    Addressing lawmakers from Russia’s lower house of parliament, Dmitry Rogozin listed robotic weaponry and automated combat management systems with highly secure and fast communication links as key items to be included in the new state arms procurement program for 2016 to 2025.

    Rogozin said robotic technologies should be present in the development of all types of military hardware for use on the ground, in the air and under water.

    Rogozin, who oversees the defense and space industries, stressed the need to reduce the variety of similar types of weaponry manufactured in small batches because of the heavy burden on defense companies and significant production costs.
    The development of modular universal combat platforms that could be used as a basis for a variety of military hardware should also be a priority, he said."

    Russia to develop 5th Generation Attack Helicopter by 2017

    PERM, December 19 (RIA Novosti) – It could take Russia about three years to complete the development of a fifth-generation attack helicopter and start testing its prototype, a defense industry official said Wednesday.
    The Mi-28NM, a modernized version of the Mi-28N Night Hunter attack helicopter that is being upgraded to standards of a fifth-generation aircraft, has been in development since 2008.

    Shibitov did not specify the characteristics of the future combat helicopter, but he was quoted earlier by the Russian media as saying that the criteria for a fifth-generation attack helicopter must include low radar signature, an extended flying range, an advanced weapons control system, the capability to combat fighter jets and have a speed of up to 600 kilometers (370 miles) per hour.

    The average military salary now exceeds 60000 rubles a month: http://armynews.ru/2013/12/09/zarpla...s-minoboronyi/

    60000 rubles is equivalent to about 1819 USD.

    What they are calling "average" -- that's the question. Mean, median, weighted average, modal peak -- these are all different "averages" that may give surprizingly different results.

    There are now 38-40 serial production Su34 build and 14 build this year by NAPO plant. How much is Russian VVS paying for each Su34, I remember them being quite cheap for such a large and capable tactical strike aircraft, only about $34 million each

    Mean average probably... but the title of this news and its text don't go alone. It is said that 60.000 isn't just a salary, but a total monthly income based on basic salary + various payments.

    The numbers, imho, are correct. I had a luck to speak with several... ahm... wives of high ranked officers from different branches this year. (don't ask me how) They all say that incomes have increased seriously. 60.000 must be a normal for Major today. From the other hand, together with rise of salaries, many privileges have been nullified for military. In other words they've got higher salaries, but now they have to pay for many things they had free before.
