The first combat helicopter Mi-28NE Algerian Air Force will soon be delivered to the customer

http://bmpd.livejournal.com/1788987.html

On a page of Algerian life "Secret Difa3" in the social network Facebook posted the photo of the Mi-28NE (in the original post Set Mi-28UB), presumably Algerian Air Force, in a typical sandy camouflage. It is reported that the helicopter will soon be delivered to the customer. It is known that the JSC "Rosoboronexport" has concluded 26 December 2013 a contract for the supply of Algeria 42 Mi-28NE with dual controls, implemented by "Rostvertol". Algeria became the second foreign customer Mi-28NE helicopters after Iraq, has ordered 15 machines in 2012. The first Algerian helicopter was lifted into the air in September 2015.

KRET is working on photonics

http://kret.com/en/news/10260/

By 2020, with the help of the latest technologies, KRET plans to create effective and advanced two-way radio, radar, and other radio-frequency systems that will replace those currently in existence. For example, the use of systems of radio-optical phased array antennas in the long term will enable the construction of a network of unique, synchronized space and ground radio-telescopes and will also be used to cover the fuselage of aircraft and helicopters with a new kind of “smart” skin.

Radars based on radio-optical phased array antennas will be installed on Russia’s fifth-generation PAK FA fighter and a number of other manned and unmanned aircraft, as well as naval platforms such as radar stations of ships and submarines.

Radio-optical phased array antenna systems will reduce the weight and size of electronic equipment by 5-7 times. Moreover, these modern antennas will also serve as a future radar.


Thanks to radio-optical phased array antennas, the resolving power of communications systems and radar will increase tenfold. If modern radar has a radar radiation frequency of 10 GHz, with a 3 cm wide range of 1-2 GHz, then the radio-optical phased array antennas will be able to simultaneously operate at this frequency at a range from 1 Hz to 100 GHz.

In other words, radio-optical phased array antennas will be capable of carrying out a kind of "X-ray vision" of planes located at a distance of over 500 kilometers, producing a detailed, three-dimensional image. Moreover, since the signal is able to penetrate any obstacle, including a lead wall a meter thick, this technology can look inside a target to find out what equipment it carries, determine how many people are there, and even see their faces.

MiG-35 pre-production batch to start flight tests soon

The first pre-production batch of Mikoyan MiG-35 (Fulcrum-F) multipurpose fighter aircraft will start undergoing flight tests this year, Sergei Korotkov, the CEO of the MiG Aircraft-Manufacturing Corporation (RSK MiG), said on 17 March.

The RSK MiG CEO did not specify how many MiG-35 fighter jets the pre-production batch would comprise. According to Korotkov, this work is being funded under a research and development contract from Russia's Ministry of Defence.

"We have fulfilled the first stage of this work today. The Russian Defence Ministry has examined and accepted the design. Thus, we are carrying out the work in accordance with the schedule specified by the contract," Korotkov said in an official RSK MiG press release.

"The aircraft that is staying here is currently undergoing all the assembly stages. This year, it will be assembled and delivered to the customer for flight tests," he added.

According to Korotkov, the MiG-35 will be able to use the whole range of air-launched weapons in service with Russia's Armed Forces. The plane can lock on ten targets simultaneously and hit four-six most dangerous objectives, he said.

Russia Test-Fires Hypersonic Zircon Missiles
http://nextbigfuture.com/2016/03/russia ... ircon.html

The first tests of the Russian Navy’s new hypersonic Zircon cruise missiles have been launched in Russia. The cruise missiles are expected to reach five or six times the speed of sound (Mach 5 or Mach 6).It will be mounted on Russia's newest fifth-generation Husky-class nuclear submarines which are currently under development.Modern Russian anti-ship missiles, like Onyx, can reach up to Mach 2.6 (750 meters per second). The sea-based Kalibr cruise missile travels at a Mach 0.9 speed, but while approaching the target, its warhead speeds up to Mach 2.9.The Zircon hypersonic cruise missiles will also be used for Russian battleship Pyotr Veliky, Tass news agency reported last month. The range of the missile is likely to be just over 248 miles."The Pyotr Veliky will start repairs in the third or fourth quarter of 2019. Repairs and upgrade are due for completion in late 2022, the ship to be equipped with Zircon hypersonic anti-ship missiles," a source told Tass at the time.

Russia Begins Underwater Robot Construction for Fifth-Generation Submarines

A file picture taken in Brest harbor, western France, on September 21, 2004, shows the Vepr Russian nuclear submarine of the Project 971 Shchuka-B type, or Akula-class (Shark) by NATO classification , the same type as the Nerpa Russian nuclear submarine

World’s Largest Akula-Class Nuclear Submarines to Be Recycled in Russia
MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Two Russian design bureaus began developing unmanned underwater vehicles for deployment by fifth-generation submarines, an official representative of the United Shipbuilding Corporation told RIA Novosti on Friday.

"The Rubin and Malakhit [design bureaus] are involved in the development. The decision to equip these devices and assigning them tasks will be taken during the layout shaping of the fifth-generation submarines," the official said.

The new nuclear submarines are expected to have advanced stealth, noise-reduction, automated reconnaissance and warning systems, Russian Navy’s Commander-in-Chief Adm. Viktor Chirkov said last fall.

"They will be released from the submarine for environmental monitoring using different hardware or to attack the enemy. Torpedoes can be used as a weapon on these carriers. We are calling them underwater robots for now," the official added.

The Sevmash shipyard in northern Russia said in July that the construction of fifth-generation nuclear-powered submarines could begin by 2020.

Admiralteiskie Verfi launches Veliky Novgorod submarine built for RF Navy (photo)

On March 18, 2016, Admiralteiskie Verfi launched the Veliky Novgorod, diesel-electric submarine built for RF Navy, the Company says in its press release.

The Veliky Novgorod submarine, the fifth one in the series being built by Admiralteiskie Verfi shipyard, was laid down in October 2014. The submarine has been built under the long-term plan of RF Defence Ministry on Black Sea Fleet’s combat readiness recovery and the plrogramme on improvement of diesel-electric submarines for Russian Navy.

All six submarines of the series are named after Hero-Cities or Cities of Military Glory.

The solemn ceremony has been attended by Director General of Admiralteiskie Verfi Aleksandr Buzakov and other officials.

The Novorossiysk, the lead submarine of the series, and the Rostov-on-Don joined the Black Sea Fleet of RF Navy in August and December 2014. Two more submarines, the Stary Oskol and the Krasnodar, were delivered to RF Navy in July and November 2015. The Kolpino, the sixth and the last submarine in the series, is to be launched in May.

Submarines of the modified 636 projects feature enhanced (compared to previous projects) combat characteristics. Non-nuclear powered submarines of improved Kilo-class (NATO reporting name) or Varshavyanka class advanced project 636 feature an optimal combination of stealth capabilities and target detection range, the newest navigation system, modern automated information management system, powerful high-speed torpedo and missiles. The boats are mainly intended for anti-shipping and anti-submarine operations in relatively shallow waters.

Admiralteiskie Verfi has been building submarines from 1932. Over this period the shipyard has built over 400 submarines and different deepwater vehicles.

Admiralteiskie Verfi OJSC (Admiralty Shipyards) is a key enterprise of shipbuilding, a centre of conventional submarine building of Russia. The shipyard is affiliated with the United Shipbuilding Corporation OJSC. A number of contracts are being successfully implemented at the shipyard for domestic and foreign customers. Four series of submarines are under construction now for RF and foreign Navies. Besides, icebreaker Ilya Muromets is under construction. The Company’s staff numbers 6,500 persons.

Growing Power: Russian Navy Received 56 Ships, Four Submarines in 2015
MOSCOW (Sputnik) —Construction of the Sankt Peterburg, the lead ship of the Project 677, began in December 1997. It was introduced into the Navy for trial operations in April 2010. Two other ships of the class have already been laid down.

"The two Lada-class Project 677 submarines will be delivered as scheduled — in 2018 and 2019," the spokesman told RIA Novosti.

"Then the construction of the new non-nuclear Kalina-class submarines will be launched," he added.

Air-independent, closed cycle submarines, which usually use hydrogen-oxygen fuel cells, are quieter than conventional diesel-electric boats and do not have to surface or use snorkel tubes to breathe air, thereby exposing themselves to detection by radar and other sensors.

Russia Is Retrofitting Its Heavy Cruisers as Carrier Killers for the 21st Century
http://russia-insider.com/en/russia-ret ... um=twitter

Advances in missile technology coupled with an improving fiscal situation, however, again came to benefit the Kirov class. Thinking in the late 2000s how to best improve their naval capabilities the Russians couldn't think of anything better but to bring back the unused Kirovs as platforms for a new generation of anti-ship missiles.Russians initially explored the option of bringing back all three mothballed Kirovs but in the end settled for retrofitting and reactivating only the newest of the them, the Admiral Nakhimov (formerly Kalinin). The rearming of Nakhimov is scheduled to be completed in 2018 after which the currently active Kirov-class vessel Pyotr Velikiy (ex-Yury Andropov) will go in for the same procedure and re-enter active service in 2022.
The key thing to take away is that when the two vessels rejoin the navy in 2018 and 2022 they will be a far different beast from the (already formidable) Kirov the Russian navy has now. Their anti-aircraft defenses will be updated from the S-300 to the S-500 standard and their main armaments completely overhauled. Their arsenal of the 1970s P-700 missiles which have a range of some 600 kilometres and travel at Mach 2.5 will be replaced by a mix of (subsonic) Kalibr cruise missiles whose range is measured in thousands of kilometres and 3M22 Zircon anti-ship missiles which travel at speeds of Mach 5 or 6.The Kirov-class vessels which weigh in at 28,000 tons and are over 250 metres long suffer from some of the same vulnerabilities that carriers themselves do – they can be sunk by aircraft or submarine. This is the reason the Soviets despite deeming them "cruisers" never intended for their large missile carrying vessels to operate alone, or to conduct romantic, but suicidal, solo raids against carriers. Instead they were envisaged as centerpieces of a larger surface group comparable to that accompanying the carrier itself.A Kirov moving at the far end of the range of friendly land-based anti-air systems and land-based strike aircraft would be reasonably protected from both carrier aircraft and submarine attack, but would at the same time greatly extend the reach of what would otherwise be land-based anti-ship weapons.Now, it is the case that the Russians have managed to fit the Kalibr cruise missile on ships as small as Gepard and Buyan-class corvettes. This means even their smaller vessels provide some area denial. However, these remain bulky weapons so that smaller vessels like frigates and destroyers come with only a few launch pads and rounds at a time.Overhauling and rearming the two ships will cost around $1.7 billion each. For the same money 2.5 new Gorshkov-class frigattes or 5 new Steregushchy-class corvettes could have been built instead.

However, the Gorshkov-class only carries 2 launchpads for anti-ship missiles and cruise missiles, and Steregushchy-class has none. A Kirov-class carries 10 such launchpads (each with eight rounds) in addition to assortment of other weapons. Altogether it is a floating platform for over 300 missiles.
Basically this means a Kirov class missile ship, covered by friendly aircraft, can shut down an entire sea against enemy fleet encroachment – something that could never be accomplished by 2.5 frigates. Moreover against a weaker or equivalent navy the ocean-going cruiser can take the fight to the enemy but a frigatte can not.
Since these ships have already been built it is now cost effective to use them rather than build new ones. Some western commentators insist the Kirov class ships are "anacrhonistic" "dinosaurs" on the account of their size which has led to them being designated "battlecruisers" in the west.The battlecruisers were indeed outdated even sooner than the standard battleships (and were really concieved to get around treaty limitations rather than because they were a sensible design). But that's missing the point that a sleak Russian missile carrier concept has very little do to do with a WWII gunboat.A vessel like the Russian heavy missile ships has never been tested in war and there's reason to believe it is at the very least no more outdated than the aircraft carrier which is still many times more expensive.

^^^^^ as soon as a carrier radar picket plane spots the Russian cruiser, it is doomed by by an advance guard of aegis destroyers, submarines and aircraft.

where a US carrier is vulnerable is the opponent's first strike capabilities. once that is over, the hunt is on by the other carriers. the Russians will never get another chance. they'll get slammed by everything but the kitchen sink........sm6's, sea tomahawks, and soon to be f-35 suite of weapons. it will be the carrier's happy time.....and that's just technology in the near future with shoe box satellites launch 24x7 on demand, hypersonic missiles of various species and some very interesting laser concepts being tested all waiting in the intermediate future.......

The biggest threat to the carrier, is still the submarine. You can out-stick an opponent's ship through air-power and this may well be happening for the future since it won't take much to take a stealthy unmanned aircraft packed with sensors and just a handful of long range anti-ship missiles to loiter for 12-18 hours, but submarines are the real danger.

IMO the great threat is still ACs not Submarines because Kirov is fitted with RBU which can intercept any inbound torpedo. And not to mention these ship can cruise at close to top speed since their nuclear powered unlike other surface combatants which makes it very hard for an SSN to intercept them.

The threat perspective was to a US carrier and I don't see the day far away when an optionally manned aircraft could loiter for a long long time and harass any SAG. From that angle, you would have a lot of these assets in various classes (X-47/Neuron/Taranis sized, to LRS-B sized) up in the air to protect a theater of operation especially if you have strong global basing and/or large aerial refuel infrastructure. A submarine threat is still something you would have to account for and when you are globally deployed, your anti-submarine warfare capability is spread out.

I thought this was a nice take:

How Putin’s Syria gamble has already paid off

by Tobin Harshaw

Bloomberg

Mar 22, 2016

NEW YORK – Vladimir Putin says he is withdrawing most Russian forces from Syria because his “objectives” have been achieved. How to judge that boast?

On such goals as keeping the dictator Bashar Assad in power, increasing Russian influence in the Middle East, restoring Moscow’s seat at the table of global power, and sending a message of strength to Islamic extremists inside Russia’s own borders, the jury is still out.

But it’s not too early to consider Russian success on another front: showcasing military strength to potential adversaries, allies and arms buyers. “Essentially, Russia is using their incursion into Syria as an operational proving ground,” retired Air Force Gen. David Deptula told the New York Times last year. And Moscow proved quite a bit.
ADVERTISING
inRead invented by Teads

The Russian military had not been in a conflict of this scale since its disastrous pullout from Afghanistan decades ago. The closest it came was the five-day border fracas with Georgia in 2008, and while the campaign was a political success, the military was unimpressive against a weak opponent. Among other woes, its intelligence operations were slipshod, with troops being repeatedly being sent into ambushes; it lost six planes to either Georgian air defenses or “friendly fire”; and its tanks proved under-armored and ill-suited to night fighting. There were reports that Russian troops took to stripping dead Georgian soldiers of their superior body armor.

Just seven years later, the Russians have done a great deal to redeem themselves. In what was primarily an air campaign, they showed a good ability to keep up the tempo of sorties — by one estimate, at least 1,000 a month from its Syria-based squadrons of SU-24 fighter-bombers and SU-25 ground-support craft — indicating efficient crews and impressive logistics. Bomber attacks from bases in Russia hinted at improved air-to-air refueling capabilities. As for accuracy, it was hard to judge the efficiency of Russia’s new GPS guidance system because the planes used a lot of “dumb” munitions like cluster bombs. Russia also allowed brief glimpses of its new Mi-35M gunship helicopter.

The red flag here is the shooting down of an SU-24 fighter by Turkey’s American-made F-16s in November. Given the unresolved ambiguities of the situation, it’s hard to draw any firm conclusions, and in any case the Russian plane wasn’t designed for the sort of dogfighting at which the F-16 excels.

The Russians also showed surprising capabilities in smart weapons. In October, they launched 26 cruise missiles from Buyan-M-class corvettes floating in the Caspian Sea. While Western intelligence claims that some fell way short of the target — in Iran, actually — the fact that such small warships were capable of employing the sophisticated Kalibr NK missile system came as a shock.

In December, cruise missiles fired underwater by a super-stealthy Rostov-on-Don submarine in the Mediterranean struck targets near Islamic State’s de facto capital, Raqqa. Given that such sea-based missiles are vastly more expensive than dropping bombs from planes, one can assume that the real aim was sending a message to Washington.

Russia also deployed some hardware that there was little reason to suppose would ever be used: sending the missile cruiser Moskva off the coast of Syria and placing advanced S-400 ground-to-air missile systems at the airbase near Latakia. This impressive air-defense assemblage might have seemed a bit much given that the Syrian rebels and Islamic State jihadists didn’t have a single plane, but the real point was flexing muscles, and the U.S. clearly took notice.

The Syria campaign should do nothing to hamper Russia’s soaring arms sales, at 25 percent of the global market as compared to America’s 33 percent over the last five years, despite Ukraine-related sanctions. Moscow is rumored to be locking its top client, India, into $7 billion in purchases including S-400 air defenses and three Admiral Grigorovich-class frigates now under construction. The two nations have long discussed a joint building operation of a next-generation fighter jet. India’s mortal enemy, Pakistan, made its first-ever deal with Moscow for four helicopters last summer, and more may be on the way, especially if a Republican-led group in Congress continues to try to block fighter-jet sales to Islamabad.

What most concerns the U.S. and its Middle Eastern allies, though, is Moscow’s courtship of Iran. After the signing of the nuclear-weapons deal last summer, Russia agreed to make good on a long-promised sale of an advanced air-defense system to Tehran, and discussed possible sales of multirole Su-30 aircraft and Russia’s main battle tank. Republicans in Congress are pressuring the Obama administration to block any such sales using U.N. sanctions, but in the long run there’s little doubt that Moscow and Tehran will strengthen ties over weapons deals — another Putin objective furthered by his risky decision to make Assad’s war his own.

The construction of new fifth-generation non-nuclear submarines dubbed Project Kalina, equipped with air-independent propulsion systems, will apparently begin earlier than planned, in the “imminent future.”

The Central Construction Bureau of Maritime Technology (TsKB) ‘Rubin’ that was commissioned by the Defense Ministry, has developed a draft new non-nuclear submarine, Alexander Fedotenkov said in an interview with the Strategy program on Rossiya 24 news channel on Friday.

“These are new-generation submarines. They are currently being developed,” Fedotenkov said. “The construction of these submarines will start in the imminent future.”

Earlier reports suggested that the construction would only start after 2020.

The new submarine will combine the best characteristics of Project 636 (Varshavyanka) and Project 677 (Lada) submarines and is set to be equipped with an air independent propulsion (AIP) system.

Russia will start building new fifth-generation Kalina submarines after 2020, according to a Navy source. The submarines will have advantages over diesel-electric and nuclear submarines

Russia to Begin Constructing New Kalina-Class Submarines After 2020
The system offers significant advantages over diesel-electric submarines, which need to surface regularly to recharge batteries, and nuclear submarines, which must constantly run noisy pumps to cool their reactors.

Submarines with such systems can stay submerged for weeks at a time and are potentially stealthier, the system is already in operation with a number of navies around the world.

According to some estimates, with the new AIP system installed, the Kalina would be able to stay underwater for about twenty-five days.

Earlier reports suggested that Russia’s Rubin Design Bureau expected the Kalina design to be completed by 2017 and the first Kalina to be fitted with AIP by 2018.

New AIP system could be initially tested on the operational Lada-class diesel-electric submarine in service with the Russian Navy, the Sankt Peterburg (St. Petersburg).

Construction of Last Lada-Class Submarines to Be Completed in 2018-2019
Meanwhile, the two last Lada-class Project 677 submarines will be delivered as scheduled — in 2018 and 2019. Afterwards Moscow will terminate the Project 677 Lada-class in favor of Project Kalina.

Maker of Russia's Deadliest Tanks to Offer Tours of Its Mysterious Factory

21:36 21.03.2016
Uralvagonzavod, the Russian machine-building plant best known for its production of tanks and armored fighting vehicles, including the T-90 MBT and the Armata Universal Combat Platform, is preparing to launch a brand new project: military tourism, a press release on the company's website revealed Monday.

Tanks A Lot: Russia's Advanced Armata T-14 'Already in Serial Production'
Guests, the press release says, will be able to visit the territory of the plant, which is ordinarily closed to the general public, allowing them to get acquainted with the military hardware produced by Uralvagonzavod and the history of the plant itself.

Visitors to the plant, located in the city of Nizhny Tagil, in the Ural Mountains, will be able to see the workshops in which the legendary T-34 tank was produced, Lenta.ru explains.

The tour will also include a visit to the Museum of Armored Vehicles, which features more than a thousand exhibits, from the T-34 to the T-90, as well as samples of armor, shells, and other individual components of the plant's production, plus rare books, other literature and paintings. Visitors, the press release says, will be able to get a look at some of the vehicles on display both inside and out.

The final stage of the tour will feature a demonstration of the T-90 main battle tank on the move, along with a master class from the vehicle's commander. Moreover, program organizers promise a working lunch in the plant's workers' canteen, plus a soldier's lunch of porridge out in the field.

Has Russia's T-90 Tank Really Made TOW Missiles Obsolete in Syria?
The 'Voyentur' ('Military Tour') program is scheduled to begin operations later this year, the company promises.

Uralvagonzavod is one of the largest scientific and industrial complexes in Russia, and one of the largest producers of main battle tanks in the world. The company also produces railroad cars and road construction equipment. Built between 1931-1936, the plant began its operations producing railway cars in the run up to the Second World War. Following the Nazi invasion in 1941, the Kharkiv Locomotive Factory, then the country's largest tank manufacturer, was evacuated to Nizhny Tagil and merged with Uralvagonzavod, which would become the Soviet Union's largest tank producer.

In the postwar period, in addition to railway cars and tanks, the company also produced equipment for the aerospace industry, agriculture, and construction. During the Cold War, the plant developed and produced tanks including the T-54, the T-55, the T-62, the T-72 and the T-90.

In the early 2000s, the T-90 became the bestselling main battle tank in the world. Last year, on May 9, 2015, at the 70th anniversary of victory in the Great Patriotic War, Russia displayed the plant's brand new Armata universal combat platform, the basis for the T-14 Armata main battle tank, the T-15 Armata heavy infantry fighting vehicle, the 2S35 Koalitsiya-SV self-propelled gun, and several other designs built on the same platform.

Russian Project 971 Akula submarines to be armed with Kalibr missiles

The upgrade of Russia's Project 971 Bars ('Akula')-class nuclear-powered attack submarines will arm them with Kalibr 3M-54 (SS-N-27A 'Sizzler') anti-ship missiles, Viktor Kochemazov, chief of the Russian Navy Training Department, told the RSN radio channel on 21 March. "Now, the upgrade of the Project 971 submarines provides for equipping them with the Kalibr system," he said.

The weapon "proved itself" during trials, according to Kochemazov. "Its use by the Rostov-on-Don diesel-electric submarine showed that the system is facing bright vistas in terms of further development," he said.

He is likely to have been referring to the 8 December 2015 strikes on Syria conducted by the Project 636.3 Improved 'Kilo'-class diesel-electric submarine Rostov-on-Don . According to the Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) at the time, this boat conducted Russia's first-ever submarine-launched cruise missile strikes on 8 December when it fired four 3M-14 land attack variants of the Kalibr missile from the Mediterranean into Syria.

At present, the Russian Navy operates a fleet of 11 Project 971 submarines, although most of these are in various stages of repair and only three boats, in service with the Northern Fleet, are operational.

Four 'Akulas' belonging to the Pacific Fleet (K-322 Kashalot , K-391 Bratsk , K-331 Magadan , K-295 Samara ) are at shipyards for repairs, with Kashalot expected to be leased to India.
Bratsk and Samara have been at the Zvyozdochka Shipyard since summer 2014, Kashalot at the Amur Shipyard, and Magadan at the Zvezda Shipyard. K-419 Kuzbass has recently been released back to the Pacific Fleet, while the repair of Magadan is nearing completion.

The Northern Fleet has six submarines of the class, of which three - K-154 Tigr , K-335 Gepard , and K-317 Pantera - are operational, while K-461 Volk , K-328 Leopard , and K-157 Vepr are in various stages of repair.

None whats so ever , Neither of the system are in operational deployment and per START the information of the system is mandatory to be shared once deployed , prior to that there is no obligation of parties to share the data , RS-26 would be deployed by End of the Year with one more test planned this year and SARMAT has just started testing cycle and will be deployed around 2022.

We will see video only once the systems get deployed in their respective regiments.

They have been dubbed 'Moscow's war games', a deadly flexing of Russia's military might in the battlegrounds of Syria that has seen Vladimir Putin's forces tip the balance of power towards the once beleaguered leadership of Bashar al-Assad.

For ranged now in the name of Putin's war on terror is an awesome array of firepower, with Russia's iron man president deploying an arsenal of his latest weapons to Syria - operating from land, sea and air.

In the latest major campaign to support Assad, the Russians have helped to drive Islamic State out of the ancient city of Palmyra, inflicting what the army called a 'mortal blow' to militants who seized the city last year and dynamited its ancient temples.

The loss of Palmyra represents one of the biggest setbacks for the ultra-hardline Islamist group since it declared a caliphate in 2014 across large parts of Syria and Iraq.

As Putin's intervention turns the tide of Syria's five-year conflict in Assad's favour, MailOnline spotlights the terrifying arsenal of weapons, armour and warplanes that have become so pivotal to the fate of all sides inside Syria.

Arsenal: Putin has an awesome array of firepower at his disposal in warplanes, missiles and state of the art tanks with thousands of military personnel deployed in the war on terror from the air and sea

BY AIR: Fleet of fighter jets with precision-guided missiles so advanced some are even controlled by the pilot's helmet

While the Russian Command Group and Co-ordination teams are based at their embassy in Damascus, it is their base in the port city of Latakia, north western Syria, which is providing the hub for the air power. Dozens of daily sorties were flown from these headquarters when the campaign was at its height.

Based there is the astonishingly powerful Air Group of Su-34, Su-35S, Su-30SM, Su-24 and Su-25 combat aircraft, the Helicopter Group of Mi-24 and Mi-35 gunships, Mi-8 utility helicopters and the Airlift Contingent of An-124, II-76 and Tu-154 aircraft.

The supersonic Su-24 tactical bomber, Su-25, Su-30 and Su-34 are all equipped with air-to-air and air-to-surface missiles to assist Syrian ground troops and destroy enemy bases.

The KH-29L air-to-surface missile - weighing up to 690kg - is designed to level hardened ground targets including railways, bridges, factories, runways and aircraft in reinforced concrete shelters, according to the Tactical Missiles Corporation.

The fighter jets (pictured, the Su-34) stationed at Russia's main airbase in Latakia, north west Syria, have been responsible for the vast majority of strikes on ISIS and rebel locations

Costing £26-million each, Russia's Su-34 (pictured) possess a state-of-the-art fire control system, a phased array radar, and powerful electronic countermeasures (ECM)

The 80ft long, 60ft wide Su-24 (pictured during military exercise) can reach speeds of around 1,400mph and can climb at a rate of 29,000ft a second

[b]WEST WATCHES 'IN HORROR' AT RUSSIA'S AMAZING FIREPOWER

The Russian- and U.S.-brokered ceasefire that began on February 27 has helped significantly reduce hostilities but at least 67 civilians are said to have been killed in the frontline of Aleppo, which is partly held by rebels and surrounded by hostile forces. The Islamic State group and the al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front have been excluded from the truce.

Despite the withdrawal of some of the 6,000 military personnel now in country, Putin still has an incredible range of firepower at his disposal. This includes Spetsnaz Special Forces acting as 'advisors' to the Syrian Army and its Iranian-backed allies on the frontlines.

This military hardware of warplanes, missile systems, artillery, state-of-the-art tanks, smart bombs and satellite technology has already changed the landscape in Syria while causing both alarm and outrage in Washington, Paris and London.

Russia has invested £254billion under Putin in an armament programme in the last decade - and has been using Syria to test it out to devastating effect..

The Russians have surprised the West by launching long-range Kalibr cruise missiles at extremist targets from both frigates in the Caspian Sea and from a brand-new diesel-electric submarine in the Mediterranean.

Significantly, Russian forces too have been testing their electronic warfare capabilities, using advanced equipment such as the Krasukha-4 mobile electronic warfare units designed to jam not only the rebels' battlefield communications but also radar and aircraft communications.

One retired British officer, who commanded forces that fought alongside Syrian troops in the first Gulf War, told MailOnline last night: 'Putin and his military have totally changed the course of the conflict in an alarming but impressive way.

'He has out flanked, out thought and out bluffed the West both testing and showcasing his weapons, many of which have not been seen in such situations before.
'Everyone is watching with interest and an element of horror as more and more hardware is rolled out.'

Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin openly admitted the weaponry being used in Syria has promoted the Russian army to a 'higher league,' promising that the gained combat experience would be thoroughly studied.
.
Fitted with high explosive, penetrating warheads weighing up to 136kg, the rocket can reach speeds of up around 900mph. It has a range of up to six miles and can hit a target within an accuracy of just two metres.

It uses a 'semi active laser guidance system' whereby the pilot marks a target using a laser sight which the missile follows.

Russian warplanes are also using the smaller KH-25 missiles, weighing around 300kg, to destroy ships, armoured vehicles, ammunition caches and oil reserves.

Meanwhile the 80ft long, 60ft wide Su-24 can reach speeds of around 1,400mph and can climb at a rate of 29,000ft a second, according to experts at Military Factory.

It is also equipped with a six barreled GSh-6-23 cannon and 500 rounds of 23mm ammo.

Russia claimed a Su-24 bomber destroyed the ISIS command centre in the Idlib on February 11. ISIS's presence in the province is disputed.

In November, a Russian Su-24 was shot down by two Turkish jets after the country claimed their airspace was violated. Both of the flight crew ejected before the plane crashed in Syria.

Russia responded by arming its Su-34 jets with AA-10 and AA-11 air-to-air missiles.

Costing £26 million and dubbed the 'Fullback', the two-seat Su-34 possesses a state-of-the-art fire control system, a phased array radar, and a powerful electronic countermeasures (ECM) suite.

The AA-10 and AA-12 air-to-air missiles can hit targets from 60miles away and, when fully loaded, have a maximum speed of Mach 1.8. They fly to a range of 2,500 miles before needing to refuel.

The A-11 Archer is the best short range air-to-air missile in Russia's possession, according to military experts at Federation of American Scientists.

The smart rocket is connected to the pilots' helmets, which they use to target enemy aircraft.

The technology also means the missiles can be fired at jets flying either side of the aircraft, which a traditional system of targeting and guidance cannot manage.

Just like the AA-10, the AA-11 is designed to destroy helicopters, drones and cruise missiles - but can also engage modern and 'next generation' fighter jets.

The heat seeking AA-10, which carries a 39kg warhead, can intercept flying targets travelling at a speed of up to 2,000mph.

CRUISE MISSILES: White swan that carries KH-101 and KH-55 cruise missiles

Russia responded to the downing of a passenger jet over Egypt's Sinai province in November by deploying its colossal 24 foot long, two tonne KH-101 cruise missile for the first time.

Carried by a Tu-160 bomber dubbed the 'White Swan', the cruise missile can be fired 6,000 miles from its target, flies as low 30m off the ground to avoid enemy radar, and is said to have an accuracy of between 25m to 30m.

Its astonishing range means the KH-101 could be launched from Moscow to hit an enemy base in Syria.

Known as the 'White Swan' by its pilots, the Tu-160 Strategic Bomber (pictured) is the heaviest combat aircraft ever built.

The satellite-guided smart rocket hugs the terrain using a digital map, which is downloaded onto its on board computer before it is fired.

Both the KH-101 and its predecessor, the KH-55, are fired from Russia's largest long range strategic bombers, the Tu-95 and the Tu-160.

The Tu-160 Strategic Bomber is the heaviest combat aircraft ever built. It can accelerate to a maximum speed of 1,380 mph, climb to a maximum altitude of 49,235 feet and has a range of 7,643 miles.

It is capable of carrying up to 12 Kh-55 cruise missiles and Kh-15 short range missiles. It is also capable of carrying with nuclear and 'regular' bombs.

A nuclear version of the missile, the KH-102, can carry a 250 kiloton warhead, which the United States has expressed concerns about.

GUNSHIPS: Helicopters fitted with tank-destroying rockets and cannons

Russia has three helicopter gunships operating in Syria - the Mi-35s, Mi-24Ps and the new generation Mi-28, which is designed to carry out search and destroy missions on tanks and armoured vehicles.

Syrian TV crews filmed what is believed to be an Mi-28 near Humaymin air base in Syria, Russia based Sputnik news reported.

Called the 'Night Hunter' by pilots, the Mi-28 is equipped with 16 tank-destroying missiles, the Shturm and the Ataka, one unguided S-13 rocket and a turreted 2A42 cannon that fires up to 550 30mm shells a minute.

It can also carry Ataka missiles (pictured), an upgraded version of the Shturm, which has a longer range of around 6,000m

The Mi-28's 30mm cannon, the 2A42, weighs around 115kg and can hit armoured ground targets from around 1,500m away

The helicopter is said to be one of the new pieces of equipment being tested in Syria and is being used to destroy tanks and other armoured vehicles.

The Mi-28's 30mm cannon, the 2A42, weighs around 115kg and can hit armoured ground targets from around 1,500m away

It has a range of up to 5,000m, hits the target travelling at 400m per second and its warhead can penetrate around 560mm of armour.

Up to 16 missiles can be fitted on the Mi-28, which can operate at any time of the day and in severe weather.

Dramatic footage from October showed two Mi-24 helicopters firing rockets on a Syrian town which was thought to be occupied by US trained rebel fighters.

SMART BOMBS: Satellite-guided 'smart missiles' that move at the speed of sound

Syria has been a testing ground for Russia's precision guided bombs.

Its warplanes have deployed the satellite guided KAB-500S to devastating effect on both ISIS and rebel strongholds - and plans to test the smaller KAB-250 in the conflict too.

The state of the art KAB-500, which made its combat debut in Syria in September 2015, is guided by Russia's space based GLONASS global positioning system (GPS).

The missile can be fired from heights of between 500m and 5,000m, and can be moving at the speed of sound when they strike their intended target with an accuracy of between 7m and 12m.

It is designed to destroy munitions depots, factories and ships in dock.

Footage from October showed a Russian Su-34 bomber dropping a KAB-500 on a Syrian rebel group's headquarters.

Another video released by Russia's MoD showed a KAB-500 being used to destroy an ISIS artillery stronghold in Latakia.

Konstantin Sivkov of the Russian Academy of Rocket, Missile and Artillery Sciences claimed the rocket was used against ISIS.

He wrote in the Military Industrial: 'Our aircraft have employed the latest product of Russia's defense industry, the KAB-250, to eliminate targets in the immediate vicinity of civilian infrastructure.

The KAB-250 was made to destroy lighter, thin skinned vehicles and other small enemy installations.

BY SEA: Black Sea fleet provides air defence 'umbrella' and boasts quietest submarine in the world

Russia has a Black Sea Fleet of at least ten ships headed by a Slava class guided missile cruiser in eastern Mediterranean waters, which provide logistics and an air defence 'umbrella' over Latakia and Tartus regions.

It includes a diesel electric submarine known as the Rostov-on-Don, which launched Kalibr cruise missiles against targets near the Syrian city of Raqqa, ISIS's de facto capital on November 17.

Commissioned in late December 2014, the submarine is a Project 636 Varshavyanka sub deemed to be one of the quietest in the world.

The stealth submarine is so advanced it is dubbed the 'black hole' because it is so hard to detect. It is the second submarine out of six planned for the Black Sea Fleet by the end of 2016.

It is backed up by Buyan-M class warships - four of which launched a barrage of 26 cruise missiles which blitzed ISIS targets located more than 930 miles away.

Each Buyan-class ship carries eight 3M-54K cruise missiles - known as 'Sizzlers' - which are 27ft long and carry a 450kg warhead.

The missile system is designed to destroy submarines, other 'surface vessels' and 'slow moving targets whose coordinates are known in advance'. The rockets have a range of up to 410miles.

Despite their 'relatively small launch weight of 1,570kg, the rockets can 'blow up very large surface craft,' according to experts at Global Security.

They added: 'The missile's moderate weight allows even warships with a small displacement to take aboard quite a few of such deadly weapons.'

BY LAND: Russian tanks can stop 'any missile in the world' and the 'Grizzly' that can defend attacks from 24 angles

Russia has sent at least 24 T-90 tanks to Syria and this month, they were used to push back the forces opposing Assad around Aleppo.

A local rebel commander told the Turkey-based Yeni Safak website his troops were attacked by more than 80 T-72 and T-90 tanks, although that number has not been verified.

The T-90s are the most advanced tanks in Russia's arsenal and are fitted with an anti-tank missile system that can stop any missile in the world.

When they were first transported to Syria, they were seen as the latest heavy armour by Russia to prop up Assad's forces in the ongoing civil war.

The armoured tank, which costs around £3million each to produce, is made from Kontakt-5 armour, which deflects the true force of the blast over a larger surface area to reduce damage.

It is also armed with a 2A46M cannon which fires 125mm shells, as well as AT-11 missiles that can destroy tanks and low flying helicopters up to three miles away, according to Military Today.

Russia has also deployed SA-17 surface-to-air missiles in an area along the Turkish border known as the Azaz Corridor, a major infiltration route for jihadist and other anti-government forces.

The SA-17, also known as the Grizzly, can engage up to 24 targets flying from any direction at any one time, experts at Army Recognition have said.

It can shoot down strategic and tactical jets, cruise missiles, air launched rockets, guided bombs and helicopters.
