Russia New Army by 2015



Since 2006 and the continue aggressive attack (verbal) by USA Russia unveiled a plan to replace nearly half of Army Hardware by 2015, and they would start spending nearly $200 billion dollars, money get by the high price of oil. They would buy 50 Topol M ICBM, 50 new bombers (maybe Tu-160), and 31 surface ships, and some 40 tank regiments.

The most important issue is the modernization of Russia ABM system now that the old treaty was break by USA, the military would begin a full research program for making true the new system S-400 far better that S-300, and light years away from Patriot PAC-3.

Ivanov told that Russia Weapon factories can still produce State of the Art Weaponry, even that most of the industry was lost during the collapse of the Soviet Union. Today with that high Russia spend in the military the budget is 25 times less than the USA.


On May 28, Russia tested the latest version of TOPOL M call “RS-24” capable of carrying 10 warheads. An asymmetric response to Bush ABM on Europe.
