Tuesday there became known some details of this year’s equipment of the Russian army with new weapons. They were supplied to the troops under the 2014 state defense procurement. Despite financial problems, its volume compared with the previous year increased by almost a third. But the main thing is that the armed forces, together with the industry have begun to implement the idea of a so-called full life cycle of the military arsenal. To put it simply, the defense companies have headed for maintenance of their products from the time of their design and construction to supplying to the servicemen and disposal.
According to a similar scheme, in 2014 there have been implemented several pilot projects. In particular, the Su-34, Ka-226, promising missile systems, and new destroyers are meant.
Besides, now the supplies of the advanced multifunctional Su-35 fighters are continued. The servicemen conducted their additional tests and once again convinced of their high quality.
