In 2012, Vladimir Putin and the Defense sector rolled out a modernisation plan for the armed forces. According to the plan, the armed forces are scheduled to reach 100% modernisation in 2020.
All three components of the Russian strategic nuclear forces have been rearmed (modernised) to 79 per cent of their whole worth – as stated by Vladimir Shamanov, the head of the State Duma Defense Committee. This guarantees Russia’s ability to deter any potential enemy.
The deputy said that three regiments have switched to the newest intercontinental missile complexes “Yars” while new missiles are being developed all the time – including heavy ICBMs.
The situation is the same when it comes to nuclear submarines – for example, the “Borey-A”. The first missile carrier of this project, “Prince Vladimir”, has already been launched.
Shamanov also talked about rearmament of strategic aviation. Currently, the supersonic Tu-160 and turboprop Tu-95MS are being modernized, all equipped with high-precision cruise missiles.
