New state program of armaments (GPV) Russia provides an effective response to each potential hazard stated RIA Novosti the head of the defense Committee of the Federation Council Viktor Bondarev.

The volume of new state armaments program will be 19 trillion rubles, it will allow implementing the most ambitious technological plans. The volume of the current GPV - 20 trillion rubles.

In all areas of development

"The new LG managed to harmonize the objectives of development of the various branches of the Armed forces. If in the previous program there is a certain bias in favor of videoconferencing in principle this is understandable, since modern wars are fought in the air and in space - and the Navy, all the families of the troops will receive approximately equal amounts," - said the head of Committee of the Federation Council.

He added that much more substantial funding than in the previous programme, heading for the combat needs of the army and air force.

"Shopwiki get a new generation of armored vehicles: tanks T-90 and T-14 "Armata" armored personnel carriers "boomerang", BMP "kurganets-25", - said the legislator.

According to him, the development of strategic nuclear forces identified in the new SAP priority. Bondarev noted that it is planned to update the strategic missile systems: decommissioned "Topol", replacing them with more modern and sophisticated "YARS". In addition, the strategic Missile forces (RVSN) will receive a new Intercontinental ballistic missile "Boundary" and "Sarmat," he added.

New technologies

As said Bondarev, will be taken into service of the new hypersonic missiles. He noted that hypersonic weapons in the future would shift the forces of strategic deterrence from nuclear to non-nuclear sphere.

That is explained to the Senator, the damage the enemy will be no less powerful, it does not hurt a third party not a party to the conflict, while the nuclear warhead and destroys everything in its path, without considering who and how to blame.

Aviation and air defense

All types of aviation in a new state program given sufficient attention: the front and army, and strategic and long-range aircraft, and drones.

According to Bondarev, will continue the procurement of su-30 and su-35. In addition, during the implementation of the program fleet fighter will be added to samples of the fifth generation su-57 (PAK FA). Planned procurement for lightweight multifunctional MiG-35, said the Senator.

He noted that the strategic bombers Tu-160 is planned to upgrade to the new version of the Tu-160M2 after the test to supply the troops.

According to the Senator, the current version of the "white Swan" is an ultramodern, supersonic, very powerful submarine can carry on Board an increased tonnage of weapons both nuclear and non-nuclear missiles, but due to the large mass to call it highly maneuverable impossible.

"Of course, this fearsome winged car today - based air units of our nuclear "triad." In addition, work is underway on the project PAK DA, which in future will replace the Tu-22M3 and Tu-95. In sufficient quantity they will buy the Ka-52 and Mi-28N, which is perfectly manifested itself in Syria. Thanks to them, managed to drive away the armored forces of the terrorists in 10 kilometers from the front line", - said Bondarev.

He also noted that the air defense (PVO) in the program is given considerable attention. According to him, anti-aircraft missile system s-400 "Triumph" is planned to purchase and supply the armed forces adequate to ensure the safety of the country number.

Russian physicists have managed six times to increase the power of the plasma railgun (rail gun), told "Izvestia" head of the laboratory of Shatura branch, joint Institute for high temperatures of RAS Vladimir Polishchuk.

Power of the improved railgun is enough to disperse the weight of one hundred grams to velocities above three kilometers per second. "For two years, the power capacity installation in the Town has increased six-fold — from 0.8 to 4.8 megajoules" — said Polishchuk.

The Institute has trained experiments with railgun, which is powered by pulse inductive energy. "This power allows you to get a higher rate of energy input into the plasma, which should increase the temperature of the plasma piston and, accordingly, to increase the speed," — said Polishchuk.

According to him, the speed of seven kilometers per second "will open the possibility of studying properties of substances at extreme settings, the production of new materials". The research of physicists in the future allow for military applications.

Background: it is Assumed that the railguns will be the basis for electromagnetic artillery of the future. Estimated to be installed on ships can fire at objects at distances of 300-400 kilometers and engage targets in earth orbit. Work on the creation of electromagnetic guns except Russia and the US are China, India and Turkey.

NPO "Alloy" creates the prototype of the heavy flamethrower system of new generation on a wheeled chassis "Lisochka", said the General Director of group "tehmash" Vladimir Lepin, reports TASS.

According to Chinese media reports, sea trials of its first aircraft carrier, built in China on a national project to commence in February. About the Beijing military expert Li Jie (Jie Li) announced the publication of "global times".

As reported TSAMTO, in 2012, the PLA Navy has accepted into service the first aircraft carrier "Liaoning" (this is purchased in Ukraine and refitted former Soviet heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser "Varyag"). It was used as a prototype when designing a national carrier, as well as for training and gaining experience of the operation of ships of this type.

Specialists of the shipyard of Dalian Shipbuilding Industry, a division of the Corporation China Shipbuilding Industry Corp (CSIC), took over eight years to repair and upgrade the "Liaoning". Head of the CSIC Wanming Hu (Hu Wenming) in November 2017, said the state TV channel CCTV, which at the moment China has the necessary experience to build aircraft carriers of any type. According to him, with the goal of creating a fleet of carriers was formed by a division of 5,000 people.

In December 2015, the Chinese defense Ministry has confirmed that the company Dalian Shipyard built second aircraft carrier, which is commonly referred to as "Type-001A" ("Shandong"). Descent ship on the water occurred in April, 2017. About the beginning of mooring trials of the aircraft carrier was announced in December 2017. Initially it was assumed that the ship will be transferred to the PLA Navy in 2020, but recently there were reports that the transfer could take place in late 2018. Aircraft carrier with a displacement of around 50,000 MT equipped conventional power plant. The length of the ship is about 315 m, the maximum width is 75 m. the Ship is constructed in a configuration STOBAR ("short takeoff from the springboard, landing on the arresting gear"). On Board, presumably, will be hosted combat aircraft J-15 and other aircraft necessary to perform the tasks.

Last year China also began construction of the third aircraft carrier in the shipyard of Shanghai Jiangnan Shipyard Group, Shanghai. Currently under construction, which is estimated to take around 2 years. The new carrier will be more modern and sophisticated compared with the first ships. It is assumed that the displacement of the third ship will be about 80,000 t has been suggested that the third aircraft carrier will be the ship type CATOBAR (Catapult Assisted Take Off But Arrested Recovery), equipped with the new electromagnetic catapults that will reduce the wear deck fighters and reduce the interval between runs of aircraft. The ship will be different smaller add-on-island to ensure the placement and operation of fighter J-15, which is great. It is not excluded that the Chinese developers will go for "British" way and equip the ship has two small add-ons that will increase the space for the runway and host the aircraft.

The period of launching of the third aircraft carrier is still unknown.

Reference: Experts say that by 2030, China plans to have four aircraft carrier battle groups.

Vice President division of Lockheed Martin Jack O Bannion, speaking on 8 January at AIAA SciTech conference in 2018 in the city of Kissimmee (Florida, USA), talked about the completion of a hypersonic drone SR-72. It on Twitter drew the attention of the journalist FlightGlobal Stephen Trimble, reports "".

On science and technology forum, organized by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, O Bannion showed a slide with the SR-72 and stated that "without a digital transformation of the plane that you see could not be done." From this it follows that Lockheed Martin has completed the development of a hypersonic drone. Recording of live broadcast available in the network statement of the Vice-President division Advanced Development Programs can be heard on the 59th minute of recording.

In September of 2017 Vice President, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Orlando Carvalho, speaking at the International aerotehnichesky Congress and exhibition, held in Fort worth (Texas), said that the United States "are on the threshold of hypersonic revolution." Aviation Week tied the words of the Manager with the testing of the prototype SR-72, undergone at the end of July 2017 at the site in Palmdale (California), where is the headquarters of the team's Advanced Development Programs (aka Skunk Works).

According to the plans of Lockheed Martin, advanced hypersonic drone is capable of flying at speeds from zero to six Mach numbers (up to 6.9 thousand kilometers per hour). In size the full-scale SR-72 should be comparable to the SR-71. It is believed that a promising drone can be used for reconnaissance, high speed device will not allow the enemy to intercept him.

A full-scale working version of the SR-72 is planned to create till the end of 2020.

Background: To date, the record speed of 3.2 Mach number in a direct flight belongs to the American reconnaissance aircraft SR-71 Blackbird, captured with weapons in 1998. Develop hypersonic UAVs are also underway in China and Russia.
