recent years, Russia’s new weapons and modern military equipment to speed up the pace significantly. Late last year, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin announced a total of 20 trillion rubles (about $ 646 billion) 10 years strong military program, less than 10 days, the Russian Air Force received four Su-34 bombers, also received 10 January Mi-8 multipurpose helicopter aircraft, officially opened a major facelift in 2011 prelude. What the future will be equipped with Russian weapons? Number and performance? These problems much outside attention. 2011, as Russia’s “10-year facelift,” the beginning of the year, from which you can see some clues.
priority update the strategic nuclear forces, the total funding for weapons procurement accounts for about 20%
constitute a trinity of land-based strategic nuclear forces (strategic rocket troops), sea-based (strategic nuclear submarines) intercontinental ballistic missiles and strategic bombers, missiles (long-range aircraft) has been the replacement of Russian weapons and equipment a priority, military weapons procurement accounts for about 20% of total.
this year, the most important focus of the strategic rocket soldiers will be fitted out fixed RS-12M2 “Topol-M” (NATO codename SS-27) and motor-RS-24 “Ya Ersi” new ICBMs, these two systems will become the next several years, the basis for Russia’s land-based nuclear forces.
