Placing New Military Weapons into the Armed Forces of Russian Federation

Lukáš VISINGR

Nowadays, there are frequent discussions about a new rise of political, economic and military power of Russia and a restoration of a superpower status of this country. The text deals with current changes in equipment of the armed forces of the Russian Federation, namely in context of the proceeding military reform, budget of the department of defense and significant changes in the military doctrine, tactics and strategy of Russia. Subsequently, it remarks six branches of Russian armed forces (i.e. rocket, space, air, land, airborne and naval forces), describes their transformations after the fall of the USSR and mentions the most important programs of upgrading old weapons and purchasing of new weapons. It also briefly analyzes the unusual Russian approach to development and acquisition of weapons. Despite some problems, the “technological” part of the Russian military reform is viewed as relatively successful.
