Forget the S-500 or Su-57 PAK-FA. Russia's Military Has Big Plans for the Future.

Russia has started planning for the development of a series of next-generation weapons to follow-on to systems such as the Sukhoi Su-57 PAK-FA and the S-500 surface-to-air missile (SAM) battery. These new systems—which the Russian government has not named—will be developed under future advanced State Armament Program.



“An important and key issue on our agenda is to define the beginning of the creation of yet another advanced state armament program,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said during a meeting of the Kremlin’s Military Industrial Commission . Putin said that Russia has to start planning for its future defense needs now as it completes developmental programs that were funded under the current State Armament Plan (GPV-2027). “It is important for us to move further and start planning today the future development and production of advanced weapons and equipment that will define the image of the Russian Armed Forces in the long-term, for the next few decades,” Putin said.

MBDA at Eurosatory 2018: IMPACT turret, 5 Km MMP firing & MLP/EMM ATGM

Image
MBDA stand at Eurosatory 2018. This video features IMPACT (Integrated MMP Precision Attack Combat Turret), the MMP medium range missile and the MLP long range missile. MLP will have a range around 10 Km. Launched from helicopters and UAVs, MLP will replace the current HOT and Hellfire missiles. In May this year, the French Army conducted a training campaign of firings in preparation for the next operational deployment of the MBDA MMP missile. The result was that two firings were made over a range of 5,000 meters, both of which were completely successful. MMP is the latest (fifth) generation land combat missile system designed for dismounted infantry as well as for integration on combat vehicles.

Trophy APS For Everyone? A Streamlined Version For M2 Bradley

Image
US Army soldiers train with an M2 Bradley IFVPhoto by: Infantry Fighting Vehicle Even as the US Army races to install Trophy Active Protection Systemson its M1 Abrams heavy tanks, Trophy’s manufacturers are testing slimmed-down versions they want to sell the US for lighter vehicles, especially the aging M2 Bradley troop carrier. US Army M1 Abrams tank with Trophy Active Protection SystemsPhoto by: APS While other technologies look promising, Trophy is still the only non-Russian system that’s combat-proven to shoot down incoming anti-tank rockets and missiles. What’s more, US Army testing of the rival IMI Iron Fist (also Israeli) on the Bradley has fallen behind schedule. Part of the delay was due to funding — money happened to be available to start Trophy testing earlier — but I keep hearing rumors that Iron Fist is having technical challenges as well. So Israel-based Rafael and its US partner Leonardo DRS are increasingly emboldened to make a move on middle-weight armored vehicles l…

The German Air Force Is Falling to Pieces

Image
Germany’s Air Force is in a lot of trouble, according to its leader “The Luftwaffe is at a low point,” Lt. Gen. Ingo Gerhartz, Germany’s new chief of the air force, said in a speech on June 27, Reuters reported . The Luftwaffe is the official name of the Air Force. Gerhartz added: “Aircraft are grounded due to a lack of spare parts, or they aren’t even on site since they’re off for maintenance by the industry,” Part of these problems are called by bureaucratic ineffectiveness, he implied. According to Gerhartz, a 400-hour inspection of Germany’s Eurofighters was supposed to take seven months. It ended up lasting 14 months. Besides bureaucratic issues, Gerhartz also said that the German Air Force needed bigger and more predictable budgets from the parliament. “Gerhartz urged lawmakers at the Wednesday event to back a more sustainable spending plan that would allow the air force to rebuild its equipment and improve planning for new weapons and upgrades to existing systems,” Reuters sai…

Raytheon is Building a 100kW Tactical Laser

Image
In February 2018 Lockheed Martin announced the production of a single-beam 60 kW laser for the Army High Energy Laser program. Image: Lockheed martin Raytheon Company is developing a 100 kW class laser weapon system under a $10 million U.S. Army’s High Energy Laser Tactical Vehicle Demonstration (HEL TVD) program contract.

Drones Shot Down Near Russian Base in Syria Were Western-Made

Image
A source in the Syrian army told Sputnik that more than five unidentified unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which were earlier eliminated near the Russian Hmeymim airbase in Syria, were "most likely on a reconnaissance mission." The source also said that "on closer examination it became clear that the UAVs' parts were made in Western countries." "The drones were invisible to conventional radars, because they were made of wood, plastic and modern innovative materials. Despite the deliberate use of these innovation technologies, the UAVS were detected by the Russian military," the source stressed. READ MORE: Russian Air Defenses Intercept Projectile Targeting Hmeymim Base in Syria It explained that first and foremost, the drones were tracked by the Russian-made photodetectors and secondly, adding to the UAV's destruction were the Syrian National Defense Forces (NDF) who are specifically tasked with protecting the territory around the Hmeymim base. &q…

China trains soldiers in a homegrown version of Call of Duty

Image
A new Chinese PC game tasks players with defending the South China Sea by blowing up US aircraft carriers. Strong Army, still in development by Nanjing QiangJun Network, is similar to the Call of Duty or Battlefield games, featuring first-person shooting alongside missions set in vehicles -- like one in a Chinese fighter jet. It even features the country’s first aircraft carrier, the Liaoning. Many gamers compare it with Call of Duty and Battlefield, but they think Qiangjun is light years behind those franchises. (Picture: Qiangjun) Sounds like something gamers in China might dig, right? Nope -- the game is being fiercely criticized, and among the things bothering them is the game’s shameless patriotism: The Chinese name of the game, Qiangjun, is taken from President Xi’s recent slogan of delivering “China’s dream of building a powerful military.” It’s also being criticized for feeling like a low-budget title. Gamers claimit was made almost entirely with pre-made 3D models available fo…

Cockpit glass stealth coating for Russian warplanes goes into production

Image
MOSCOW, July 2. /TASS/. The composite material developed for the cockpit glass of Russian warplanes to cut significantly their visibility for enemy radars is already used in the domestic aircraft-building industry, spokesman for the Technologiya R&D Enterprise (the material’s developer) Sergei Ananishin told TASS on Monday. "This material was developed purposefully, on order from our aircraft builders. It is already used," he said. As was reported last week, the Obninsk-based Technologiya R&D Enterprise (part of RT Chemcomposite Group within state hi-tech corporation Rostec) has developed a special composite material for aircraft cockpit glass that increases radar wave absorption twofold. "The pilot’s cockpit glazing is a major unmasking factor for the aircraft due to the low level of radar wave absorption. The innovative coating considerably reduces a combat plane’s signature for enemy radars," the Rostec press office said. Industrial Director of the Rost…

US spy planes are breaking down

Image
America’s aging C-135 reconnaissance planes keep breaking down, and alarmed lawmakers want the U.S. Air Force to tell them why. Based at Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska, the 55th Wing’s Boeing-made reconnaissance and intelligence-gathering aircraft, all more than 50 years old, are meant to carry out critical missions from operating bases in England, Greece, Japan and Qatar. But an Omaha World-Herald investigative series has found that mechanical problems plague the jets, cutting short 500 of their flights since 2016 and one of every 12 missions since 2015. That’s prompted Nebraska lawmakers to write to Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson, urging her to probe and report on the health of the 55th Wing’s worn-out fleet. Meanwhile, the Nebraska delegation is trying to fend off an effort within Congress to strip funding to recapitalize the OC-135, which conducts overflights of Russia under the 34-nation Open Skies Treaty. Some lawmakers and Pentagon officials have grown skeptical of the tr…

The Carrier’s Role is Narrowing

Image
Long the centerpiece of the U.S. Navy, the aircraft carrier will become a more focused player. Since the end of the Cold War, the U.S. Navy has enjoyed more than two decades of unchallenged supremacy on the world’s oceans. With its global reach, it has become accustomed to deploying warships in support of its national interests wherever needed with virtual impunity. The activities of would-be competitors and recent developments in naval warfare, however, suggest its “Long, Calm Lee of Trafalgar” is about to run out.1 The centerpiece of U.S. power projection has been the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, a hugely expensive but immensely flexible asset that can conduct almost every naval role imaginable. Today, the carrier does have some growing limitations when facing first-rate opposition. Operationally, the problem has two parts. First, the radius of action of the offensive piece of the carrier’s arsenal, the air wing, has been allowed to decline with successive generations of tactic…
