The Russian Ground Forces’ new suite of armoured vehicles have been officially revealed for the first time by the Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD), ahead of their formal debut at the 9 May Moscow Victory Day Parade.
The new vehicles are principally clean-slate designs and represent the biggest change in Russia’s armoured fighting vehicle families since the 1960s and 1970s.”
These vehicles include the Armata MBT, the Coaliation-SV AV, the Kurganets-25 IFV, and the 8×8 Bumerang IFV.
“The U.S. Army is working to glean intelligence on Russian military technology from the conflict between pro-Russian separatists and Ukrainian forces, American generals said.
The Moscow-backed rebels are waging a hybrid war that includes the use of soft power such as disinformation and cyberattacks to hard power such as truck-mounted Grad rocket launchers, according to Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges, commander of U.S. Army Europe.”
