On March 15, Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SPRI) issued a new report on global arms transfers. It shows that international transfers of major arms stayed at the same level between 2011–15 and 2016–20. Substantial increases in transfers by three of the top five arms exporters—the USA, France and Germany—were largely offset by declining Russian and Chinese arms exports. Middle Eastern arms imports grew by 25 percent in the period, driven chiefly by Saudi Arabia (+61 percent), Egypt (+136 percent) and Qatar (+361 percent).

When Chinese military leaders visited a U.S. military post in 2012, Maj. Gen. Ross Coffman recalled that they were shocked to see what the Army could do. “I saw it in their eyes,” said Coffman, now the director of the Next Generation Combat Vehicle Cross-Functional Team. “They didn’t believe our capability. I think deep down that put a fear in them that they had to modernize.” Sean Kimmons, Army News Service, reports.

The military activities are changing due to high-tech arms and hardware in the leading world armies. They change the character, structure and contents of the armed struggle. The main vectors of the changes include information technologies and asymmetric actions of the opposing parties. Reconnaissance is a major type of combat provision and has reached a development threshold, Colonel PhD Military Science Ye. Bezsudnov and Lieutenant-Colonel R. Gafarov write in the Voennaya Mysl (Military Thought) journal.

It is to be noted that reconnaissance activities, as a raid, search and ambush in the classical format are difficult to implement in modern conditions of non-linear combat actions with asymmetric and hybrid features. Experience shows that the methods are mostly used by commandos staging a special operation in a deep rear, e.g. a raid, together with the weapons of combat platforms that are different in characteristics and engagement spheres. A raid, search and ambush acquire clear combat features by the structure and contents when reconnaissance data becomes a secondary task.

Despite the impact of COVID-19 over the past year, many Chinese military analysts and observers believe that the country's defense budget for 2021 will continue to increase, likely at a higher growth rate than 2020, and they name China's positive economic growth, the tough military threats China is facing and China's own rightful needs to develop national defense capacity as the main reasons, Global Times reports.

In a major lack of time and materials for precision munitions, rational combination of experimental and theoretical methods for reliable forecast of characteristics becomes vital. It is specifically important at the stage of optimization of experimental testing and calculated estimates of munition parameters and fuzes. It is also necessary to rationally unify the results of experiments at the stage of design of similar-caliber munitions for various weapons.

Major changes are visible in munitions design. In the first two decades of the 21st century, they were not a priority of the arms program and received little finances. However, combat actions in Syria clearly demonstrated the acute necessity to upgrade and design new-generation munitions for various weapons. A quick fulfilment of the task is impeded by deteriorating skills of designers and technologists.

Effective engagement of the payload is the main military-technical task in any conflict of various intensity. It is also necessary to increase the number of munitions and maintain them in the required engagement readiness according to the number of launchers. The might of the Russian armed forces is determined by the latest weapons and hardware and the ability of the defense industry to design and produce modern munitions, PhD Technical Science V. Selivanov, PhD Technical Science V. Veldanov, and PhD Technical Science retired Colonel Yu. Ilyin write in the Voennaya Mysl (Military Thought) journal.

Turkey was expelled by the U.S. from the Lockheed F-35 Lightning II program because of its choice to buy and operate Russian-made S-400 air defense missiles which is consirered as incompatible with a NATO member status. The cuntry now wants to open discussions for the "Crete model" regarding the use of its S-400 missile system, Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said on February 9.

The design of counterdrone weapons targets each particular vehicle depending on its operational principle. The weapons have to detect, identify drones, and destroy or jam them. There is no information about a common counterdrone system in scientific literature. A specific subsystem of the fight against small drones is considered only for the air defense of the land forces. It is proposed to include into it reconnaissance and information, combat control, antiaircraft and artillery forces, and an array of specialized antiaircraft weapons with missile and technical provision.

There is a search for new methods to fight air targets triggered by a rapid development of drones, which pose a major danger to the warring parties and numerous economic, infrastructure objects and mass events in peacetime, Colonel PhD Military Science V. Tikshaev and Retired Lieutenant-General PhD Military Science V. Barvinenko write in the Military Thought magazine.

Missile brigades of the Russian Ground Forces will closely interact with the Navy from 2021. Iskander-M missiles (SS-26 in NATO code) will support naval operations at a distance of 500 km and precisely destroy adversary targets, such a coastal facilities and hardware, air bases, radars and command posts, the Izvestia daily writes.
