Russian Weapons in Syria- Analysis, Results, Conclusions unveils the preliminary results of successful combat operations and the key conclusions and analyses the prospects of further evolution of Russian weapons and other military and special materiel.
The hostilities in Syria proved to be the best and most complex testing ground for the Russian Armed Forces and defense industry. The operation has involved virtually all key capabilities of the Russia Aerospace Force (VKS), Special Operations Forces, Military Police and Navy.
The operation in Syria has afforded the Russian military - VKS and the Navy in particular - an invaluable experience and an opportunity to demonstrate the cutting-edge Russian weaponry, satellite communications and navigation system - their effectiveness in combat, high accuracy, reliability and safety. In addition, the Russian task force's successful combat operations in Syria have given impetus to the increasing exports of Russian combat gear.
Russia's defense industry got an opportunity to test its products in battle and start improving them, which certainly will facilitate the growing value and number of foreign orders for Russian armament, feasible in the coming years.
