Ukraine became the third on a size state (after the USA and Russia) on the supplies of nuclear weapon. Disposing to 1124 strategic war-heads and 2500 - tactical. There were 3 regiments of strategic bombing aviation on territory of Ukraine, in which stood on the armament of Tu- 22, Тu-22М3, Ту- 95, Тu- 160
    In 1994 Ukraine gave up a nuclear weapon, in an exchange on assured by the USA and Russia, obligation of territorial integrity of Ukraine. In 1996 the export of nuclear war-heads began to Russia, elimination of starting mines and transmission of Тu- 95 and Тu- 160 to Moscow.

    It's not even age.. On Tu - 95 and В- 52 fly grandchildren of those pilots, who them in the first time lifted in air. And all Тu- 160 in the moment of disintegration of USSR and there were not 5 years old. But the fact that Ukraine inherited 12 Tu-160s and 27 Tu-95, which Ukraine could not then even contain. On maintenance and reduction of enormous army for was spent almost 25% from total budget in year. Russia renounced to purchase these airplanes, thinking that Ukraine by him them will give free of charge. When on American money in 1998 destroyed the first three airplanes, then Russia began negotiations and took 8 Ту- 160, for debts on natural gas. One airplane it was decided to leave in a Strategic Aviation Museum
    So better museum, what such fate…

    When cut all these airplanes, pilots really cried .

    Part of II
    Presently the army of Ukraine counts a 184 thousand man, that is a 5th place in Europe. Her forces consist of Ground Forces, Air forces and Navy. Mainly all technique, produced in the second half 80 - ht, but as enormous supplies of technique were reached "in an inheritance" Ukraine, many machines have a zero index of exploitation practically. With 2003 Ukraine began modernization of technique and rearmament, but with coming to power of Yushchenko and his orientation on NATO the process of modernization was practically stopped. His renewal was begun in 2010. This year a Military budget was megascopic on 30%, but however as compared to the Military budget of Poland he less of him in 3,5 time.
    Ground Forces
    Most numeral sort of Forces
    Consists of:
    • Armored and mechanized forces
    Modernization of all types of armored vehicles passes, setting of the new modules, all machines are equipped FCS and domestic engines. mine defence increases also. This year, entering began troops of new standards of techniques of BTR - 4 and BM Oplot - M

    • Missile and artillery
    For 20 years of independence substantial lag of the Ukrainian artillery was set before western standards. Modernization of technique is now conducted for passing to the digital management, development of new modern ammunitions.
    Planning and creation of missile complex "Sapsan"(Peregrine) is conducted. he will be able to shoot not only by missile on distance a 480 km. But also ASM, that compensates maintenance of expensive fleet, for defence of marine borders of Ukraine. The acceptance of him on an armament is planned in 2015
    Presently powerful by the artillery system in Ukraine of is MRL Smerch, but battle firings of from his excessive power for densely populated Europe conduct only on trainers and on MRL Uragan.

    So Ukraine still uses those ZIL-135 trucks? Those are pretty old school.

    Also, RZD (Russian Railways) runs trains called Sapsan. ;)

    In Ukraine there is developments MRLS 220-мм on the undercarriage of KrAZ- 6322, but while does not use all service life of of ZiL, then an army will not begin to change them.
    [​IMG]
    And the Russian speed train in any way is unconnected with new complex. Simply Sapsan - it is the most rapid bird of world. A project it was begun to develop in 2006 and a train Sapsan began to ply in December, 2009.

    You are right. In Ukraine army, a much smaller millitary budget than in France, but the number of space launches we shared in 2011 with France in third place. We use your optics to the armored cars, and you are our missile engines in the Ariane-5.

    Yes, it is "dropping" BMD-2 from the aircraft IL-76. Ukrainian military transport aircraft today is represented by An-124, IL-76, An-74, An-32 An-26. Now there is a program goes on passing to the technique of new generation of An-70 and An-140T, and An-178 (this year it will begin flying tests).
    But I will write later about it.

    We don't use Ukrainian engines in Ariane 5.

    [​IMG]

    That doesn't have much to do with Ukraine's broke military. What does is that only 31 combat aircraft out of 112 can fly. That the navy is rusting away and that the Army doesn't have money to train.

    I am sorry, made a mistake not in "Ariane" and the sustainer of the Ukrainian production is used in "Vega". And regarding military exercises and all other "scrap-metal" for you information is outdated. It was at Yushchenko which messed up an army specially, because servicemen and country does not want in NATO. It is certainly impossible to compare our achievements to France. At French army a budget is in 30 times anymore. But we also went on a french way. All technique, that passes modernization and new standards - domestic production. And internal prices for us on an order below what in France That year 15 airplanes (MiG- 29, Su- 27 and Su- 25) passed modernization. This year an army got 10 repaired and modernized airplanes (Su- 24, Su- 27 and L- 39) already. The only submarine of class Foxtrot "Zaporizhzhya", building three heavy corvettes (by the way on them will stand french Exocet and artillery) are stopped up. Built on other shipyard of class LCAC Zubr. By a past autumn there were military exercises of " Adequate reacting 2011" the greatest for us for the last 10! years.
    But about this everything in next post.

    My country in a flow was 20 years robbed by all who a "helm" had. Now, when they came to power, people who know how to manage, then the Great European Guad (France, UK, Germany, Italy) does not want to allow to the market such large player as Ukraine. Can her Gross domestic product less than at Poland, but a country lost neither aerospace, nor neither military nor shipbuilding nor machine-building nor atomic technologies. But in 1991 her Gross domestic product was evened Gross domestic product France.

    Come on guy, get real. Ukraine's defence budget is $1.4 billion and been underfunded forever by 25% of the pathetic goal the Duma sets. The Army went from 2007 until 2011 without a single exercise. VVS pilots only fly 20hrs. Very little equipment has been renovated and practically nothing new bought.

    [​IMG]

    This shows the deficit of planned renovation and what actually was repaired. All the money goes to social condition of troops, not training or new equipment and how can you expect to with only $1.4 billion for a 180,000 man military? Yanukovych is too busy making his personal army so no revolution can overthrow him. Even selling off its Soviet stocks UA is not able to close its budget gap. That submarine has no combat value.

    The real situation is dilapidated Soviet era equipment that has not been maintained and troops that have not been properly trained. Ukraine is not ready to fight a war.
