The Bear awakening is not a good thing. The Cold war is not something we want to return to. I find it odd that you are really enthusiastic about Russia re-arming the hell out of themselves.

Ignoring the politics of it for a sec, I think it highlights the fact that Russians do make good toys and that they're just as deadly as any other nation that produces advanced weapons systems. I'd take a long hard the specs of those toys before I towed the "Aww, Russian can't make sh*t" line.

 

I think the REALLY scary thing here is how freely some of these systems are being sold and to whom...

The resurgence of Mother Russia is the best news the American Military can have...you just can not have a Batman without a Joker.

 

Oooo....20 fighter wings, 600 ship navy, 1,000,000 man army...more heavy bombers than we have total inventory now...wait what was the bad thing?

Totally agree with you Sparky. At least in the Cold War he had clear objectives, lots of hardware and the money to maintain it to boot. It's a hell of a lot better than this cat and mouse BS we are doing now, with a lot less too.

I'd be worried if they produce some more aircraft carriers than the only one they have now. Hell, we all know the Chinese want that kind of blue-water capability.

Their carriers would also be far more useful if they used catapults to launch aircraft.

 

Asfar as I know aircraft on the Kuzenstov can't carry bombs becouse they wouldn't be able to take off.

I think you're right, mate.

 

Hell, the Kuzenstov to Russia is like the Langley was to the United States. They'll get the hint, soon.

With what money? Where are we going to get the money to buy all of these new toys? Hell we are still paying on the toys we bought in the 70s and 80s. We beat the Russians out because we could out spend them. We bankrupted them. At the same time we really hurt ourselves. This was a justifiable tactic at the time, since nuclear weapons were pointed at us. However, todays economical climate does not lend it's self to that tactic.

 

The main difference between us and Russia is that we will not starve our people out in order to build tanks, planes, bombs and bullets. We have never been that desperate for power/survival. Give us another Cold war, with the way things are now. That might all change.

 

Ignoring the politics of it all, yes Russia does make some interesting devices. It is interesting to see how they answer the same battlefield problems as we do. So what you end up with are aircraft, tanks and ships that do the same job as the US, they just approach the problem with a different set of solutions. That being said, I am far from enthusiastic about what Russia is building.

I must say, one can't blame them... I mean, they still are a superpower, they regained economic strength, and the West isn't respecting agreements (what was the name of the Treaty again) limiting armaments... plus, I don't understand why the U.S. won't go with Russia to build that joint missile shield the russians are proposing... It's not like they care more for the muslims than the americans do... just my 50 cents...

The B-52 is not going to be retired anytime soon. The Bear on the other hand...who knows. Who knows if Russia even has enough parts to keep their fleet operating. The Russian bombers and cargo planes don't worry me. Russia let that fleet go to hell in a hand basket. It is Russia's ability to upgrade their fighters and attack planes with ease that worries me.

 

At this stage, Russia, while a notable threat if their politics change, is not a major threat. Countries like China are still far more frightening. Russia's equipment is still circa 1993 at best. As long as we don't go spend happy on projects that are pointless, we should still stay way ahead of them in the technology department.

Talking about the Bear, a curious question came to mind: which one do you think will be retired first - the Bear or the Stratofortress? :grin:

 

in the magazine said:"the Russian Governents wants retire 20 Tu-95 units until 2010, to stay operating the modern bears.

Need more raptors!

the china combat aircrafts still have a LOT of MiG-19 and 21!

 

but they are investing in new technologies, like the Jian J-XX.

 

i think the DoD politics of just focus on anti-Terrorist , and forgeting the conventional forces isnt the way to follow,maybe in a secondary goal, not a primary :wink:

some misconceptions raging above.

 

The Kuznetsov absolutely can launch aircraft with bombs. but their original mission was to provide fighter cover for their surface fleet and SSBN operating areas. Not go toe to toe with the USN carrier fleet. The Su-27K is a pretty sweet aircraft and does operate quite nicely from their deck. The Kuz has been active of late working up their airwing.

 

The Russian bomber fleet does not worry someone above, it does worry some of us! They have been active with upgraded electronics and cruise missiles. They have been flying northern operational patrols regularly all summer and we have had fun in the Arctic playing tag with them. Those handful of bombers with cruise missiles does have the capabilty to incinerate North America and once the cruise missiles are in the air, not a whole lot we can do to stop it. Just hit back......

 

They do build good stuff and have been operating what they have a lot more. They are becoming once again a force to be reckoned with.

I'd rather have the BEAR awaken from it's slumber than the dragon. Good for Russia that they're slowly coming back and to hell with those who have the audacity to criticise the Russian's while their own country does pretty much the same. Do as I say NOT as I do seem's to be the current attitude.

To hell with me then? Alrighty, and by "their own country" you mean the United States? I have yet to see the United States stave out it's people to by taxing the public to the point of starvation. By the way it is spelled "c-r-i-t-i-c-i-z-e" I have never "criticise" anything in my life. That sounds like an exercise machine gone wrong.

The original English spelling is "criticise".

Although you do bring up a good point - with the US prevalence for replacing the "s" with a "z" (that's a zed btw not a zee :wink: ) why isn't it exercize in the US?

Holy **** dude relax ! Pop a Tylenol 3 and chill. Why is it that you assume I'm referring to the U.S when I say "their" . STOP assuming that the WORLD revolve's around the U.S.A...it does'nt. Am I anti-American for saying that....NO, but you certainly are welcome to thinking that. The U.S isn't the only country that is opposed to a stronger Russia you know and if you're quick to jump to that conclusion based on what I've said then I'm sorry, maybe I should have been more clear seeing how some individual's are just so quick to pass snap judgement's.

 

BTW, thank's for the spell check (Guess PROPER ENGLISH SUCKS !). Didn't catch it. PEACE !
