This sounds pretty cool man! Russia are gently making progress forward in their new economy and with their new army, navy. Good for Russia and the Russian ppl. Future investments "when they soon are going to be needed if everything checks out with the different prophets."

I have been thinking about taking evening classes in Russian and Arabic to be honest. Can be a good future Investment that too. Some persons buy new cars, collects stamps or knits cardigans but I collect useful tools for my future existence. Chinees would be fun to learn too but I am no Protocol Droid from a freaking star wars movie.

What I can never figure out about Russian submarine design is this. The operate on two doctrines:
1.) The faster the better.
2.) The deeper the better.
What do they forget? Silence. Their submarines are VERY loud and easily found because of that fact. That makes them lousy for accomplishing their primary objective; hiding. The USA could definitely take a page from their book in speed and depth, so long as they can keep the subs running quietly, but the USA isn't going to sacrifice stealth for any reason.

Interestingly enough, they also overemphasize speed in their aircraft, while missing other things.

Has Russia ever figured this out? Do they have designs that fix these issues?

Why are the Russians building new boomer subs and new classes of ICBM nuclear missiles? Don't they realize the threat is mostly from Chechnya now, and I don't know if you've noticed or not but Chechnya doesn't really have a very powerful navy.

I would think Russia still has enough economic problems that their money would be better spent on getting their economy in better straits. I bet Germany is just thrilled to see what the Russians are doing with the billions they sent them for rebuilding - too bad it seems to be their military being rebuilt rather than their economy.

What? And the U.S. is so much more of a theat? You really think they need to build more nukes to deter America from invading Russia to get it's hands on Russia's lucrative monopoly on organized crime?
