Russia's Armed Forces suffered badly following the collapse of the Soviet Union. The result was a hollowed-out military. Today, however, Russia once again has a capable military built on the back of sustained defence investment and reforms. While far smaller than Soviet military, Moscow's conventional armed forces again provide its leaders with a credible tool to threaten to use or exert military power. This book explores and evaluates the impact of modernisation on Russia's army, navy, air force, and its strategic forces, examining the key equipment improvements and structural changes that have been put in place. Each of the main arms of Russia's military is dealt with in a dedicated chapter detailing the effects of the reforms and renewed defence expenditure, and the resulting improvements in capability. Russia's recent combat experience in the Syrian civil war is considered as are the lessons senior military officials are drawing from the intervention. The text brings together Russian and Western military specialists in their respective fields to provide authoritative analysis of Russia's military capabilities today, to measure the extent of Moscow's progress, and to evaluate the implications of Russia's now credible military.
