In 2011 rearming of the Russian fighting forces was announced. It is planned to purchase 1000 helicopters, 600 military airplanes, 100 military ships, including 8 nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines. Let’s see what Russian Army will look like in a couple of years.
5th generation fighter T-50 PAK FA is our response to the American Raptor. It develops supersonic speed of 2600 km an hour at the height of 200 meters and is equipped with inbuilt guns, aviation bombs and controlled rockets. It is the only airplane in the world that can compete with F-22.
Triumph C-400 air defense system. It is called ‘a grumbler’ in the US Pentagon. Even if the object is 40-50 km above the ground it will be annihilated with the system that leaves no chances for survival. It can shoot down a hypersonic aircraft, aerodynamic missiles and nuclear warheads. C-400 provides simultaneous bombardment of 36 objects orienting up to 72 rockets.
The tactical Ballistic Missile System “Iskander” can help to handle the issue related to dislocation of American ballistic missile defense in the Eastern Europe. Just to compare: any missile covers the distance from Kaliningrad to Warsaw equal to 280 km at the speed of 2100 meters a second. The action range of “Iskander” is 500 km. It takes 2 minutes and 22 seconds for the missile to reach the object.
Tank T-90C is an armored fortress that weighs 46 tons and is equipped with non-traditional means of dynamic protection and cannon/missile armament. It moves 32 km an hour but can accelerate to 50 km an hour. The American Abrams will be left far behind. It takes 2 minutes for the tank to bring 60% of the hostile armor out of operation as the latter is not capable to approach it any closer.
