Why? Its the worlds largest country, witha a population of 300 million people, and a proud military tredition. 10 years ago Russia had 1.4 million man in its army, so if you will ask a Russian, there Army is relativly small...

That is correct. The cream of the Russian Army is exellent, but most units are poorly trained and not well equipped. They have some very good new equippment, and some very poor old equippment.

For example, while some Russian units have the highly advanced AN 94 rifle:

Many have the older AK47.

While some units have the modern T90 MBT:

Others have the older T72, T62 and even T55 MBTs.

and so on in many areas. WWII era weapons and tactics are used along side highly modern weapons and concepts. That is the curse of low budget.
