by lack of funds, personnel shortages and a series of problems, Russia has been unusually strong defense industry is now no longer brilliant, new weapons and equipment research and development is in a slump, both threat to Russia’s national security, but also weakened its position in the international arms market. To this end, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has visited an important military enterprise, and personally as an anti-ship missile system “operator” in an attempt to boost the morale of the defense industry out of the woods refreshing.
guest missile systems operator
10 26, Medvedev visits Moscow State “Science City” Liewutuofu the “machine research and production association “, which is one of Russia’s most famous military, missile type weapons and space equipment development in the domestic leading position, responsible for the Russian military to provide the latest high-tech weapons and exports to overseas missions.
Dmitry Medvedev visits a missile heat test workshop, the workshop itself is like a huge room that can accommodate two floors of a big object. The heat test, the workshop provided a unique device can be 2000 degrees Celsius temperature environment. Subsequently, Medvedev has watched the RS-18 from the retired warhead intercontinental ballistic missile converted to remove the “Arrow” two-stage launch vehicle.
In another workshop, Medvedev watched the “Bastion” mobile shore-based anti-ship missile system. The system is composed by a number of vehicles, including several self-propelled launch vehicle and a battle command vehicle. Was accompanied by experts to explain the system works the President, demonstrates how the missile 50 seconds to enter a state of war, then shot him battle command describes the performance of the car. Medvedev into the control room, sitting in front of the stage control, a guest of an anti-ship missile system “operator.”
urged to step up development of new weapons
“machine research and production association” Alexander Leonov, general manager and chief architect, reported that business doing well this year, total production from last year’s 6.9 billion rubles to 150 billion rubles (100 rubles or about 23.5 yuan), of which 78% came from defense orders. Jointly developed with India, “Brahmos” cruise missile popular, 40% of the total output is exported to foreign countries. After that, he also made a cruise missile with a titanium model to give the President a souvenir.
but these results do not ease the weapons development status of Russia Dmitry Medvedev’s dissatisfaction. He then held an enlarged meeting of the defense industry development, said the efficiency of military enterprises related to the successful modernization of national defense forces and military equipment to consolidate the status of the exporting country. Although the Government has invested heavily in recent years for the defense industry’s development and modernization, but yet not received a good impact. Defense industry is still in “fill holes” policy, military innovation ahead of the field goals and did not meet.
Medvedev, the Russian military and the delivery of weapons and equipment for export quality deep dissatisfaction with emphasis on Russian weapons Zengyin efficient, reliable and world-renowned, now attractive to foreign customers are disappearing, and Russian military will soon begin upgrading weapons and equipment, officers and men of the quality of life depends on weapons and defense industry to protect the quality. Therefore, the defense industry should first spend money on R & D does have prospects of latest weapons, and not for those who do not know whether to use something or holding something old-fashioned hold.
the Russian defense industry perilous
as armed forces commander in chief, Medvedev inspect military enterprises, anti-ship missile system guest “operator”, aims to boost the morale of the defense industry, and promote their plight, restore the international status of Russian-made weapons. This is the Russian leader’s practice. Putin’s tenure has had a surprising move repeatedly, such as pro-drive front-line fighters flew to Chechnya, not only inspired the people behind the front-line soldiers and also shows the determination to fight against separatist forces. The critical moment in the worsening of relations between Russia and the U.S., his “muscle show” a strong response to Western pressure. However, leaders may not be able to work sometimes. Putin Volga automobile factory products who advertise, but still can not stop the slide into bankruptcy car factory.
Medvedev hopes revive the Russian defense industry, but several inspection alone can not fundamentally change the status quo. For example, the “Bulava” submarine-launched strategic missile is the Russian military as the latest and one of the best strategic weapons, the development process is extremely unfavorable, 13 test-fired seven times fail. According to October 26 announced the findings of its latest test failure, a steering system failure. But Russia “newspaper reported,” that this is only superficial, simply because the Russian missile R & D personnel shortage, which is Russia’s entire military-industrial complex facing the problem. If you want to change the Russian military-industrial personnel shortages, we must fundamentally change the military-industrial structure, improve treatment, military experts only live to enjoy doing business.
