You guys better gear up as Trump is showing the real face of the U.S. Russia on the other hand can't handle NATO at all and will be crushed easily.

@Legend only an idiot underestimates his enemy, the Russians are no-where as weak as you protray them and most of the euro armies barely have their vehicles in working order. any war between Russia and the west will be a long drawn-out affair that will cost millions of lives (providing the Chinese don't help the Russians) likewise the risk of nuclear escalation will result in even more mass death for civilians. I currently live near a nuclear facility and I don't know about you but I would sooner NOT get atomized.
Likewise Trump is a pro-Russian so I doubt he will start anything against Russia, that said a war with China is not impossible............ if so same result anyway.
Trump is even threatening NATO members that don't spend 2% of their GDP.... most of NATO.

Trump will do anything for the sake of the money that is for sure. NATO members like Germany, France and the UK along with the US are far more powerful than Russia no doubt about that. Trump is immature when it comes to politics but his current appointed advisories and head of military have previously served during the Gulf War and Iraq invasion. The US/NATO will not be aggressive toward Russia will take counter measures to the Russian expansion in Europe be it militarily or economically.

Trump has his own money and although you guys are rich (the gulf states) your whole combined nominal GDP still is only a fraction of the U.S.A's. the U.S may help you, if you are attacked first but you need to remember this comes with you paying for it (remember how much debt poor saudi got into after desert storm, that more or less hampered it's economy until 2003).
The only euro army somewhat ready for war is France and they have had issues in mali (in additon with requiring US logistics aid to launch the invasion they are asking aid from Germany & Austria). the UK scares nobody and without the US they are nothing (they haven't been Great britain for about over 70 years). the British may think they are strong but they probably couldn't defeat Iraq (pre gulf war) on their own let alone the Russian federation. the US and Russia have an equally large nuclear arsenel and if either of those two start losing they will start launching their missiles. thus it is in everyone's best interest to have good friendly Russo-American relations.

Likewise James Mattis is a vet of both wars yes (and afghanistan). however if there is one thing he is not it is a war hawk. he even stated he is against trashing the Iran deal (and he hates Iran) because he is in favour of a peace and tenstion drawdown. likewise Mattis also told the Europeans recently "start paying more for your own defense or we will do less".

Delivery of Project 667BDRM - Delta IV class SSBN Submarine K-114 Tula Delayed to 2018
The handover to the fleet of Project 667BDRM (NATO reporting name: Delta IV-class) Tula nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) is rescheduled from the fourth quarter of 2017 to March of 2018. The schedule is disrupted by faulty products of one supplier of the Zvyozdochka shipyard in Severodvinsk where the boat is repaired. This has been revealed to the FlotProm Internet publication by Yevgeny Gladyshev, the spokesman of the enterprise.

"The submarine is now undergoing sea trials. The schedule is disrupted because we received off-grade components of essential equipment. The rescheduling has been agreed with the Defense Ministry," Gladyshev reported. The Zvyozdochaka representative did not specify which item proved to be substandard and who has manufactured it.

The expert Andrei Frolov believes that the three months’ delay will not perceivably affect the naval element of "the nuclear triad." "Now in service with the fleet are three Borey- (Project 955), three Kalmar- (Project 667BDR) and five Delfin-class (Project 667BDRM) submarines. We are quite capable of ensuring the naval deterrence with one strategic sub out of service," the said.

K-114 Tula SSBN was built at the PO Sevmash Production Association in 1987. In 2006, the Zvyozdochka Shipyard carried out a medium repair and modernization of the nuclear submarine. In December 2014, on expiry of the between-repair period, the SSBN was again transferred to the Zvyozdochka Shipyard in Severodvinsk for regular maintenance and extension of its between-repairs period.

What is Known About Russia's 5th Gen Husky-Class Stealth Subs
20.12.2017

The first Husky-class submarine is planned to be completed by 2030. The fifth-generation sub will join Russia's fleet of nuclear-powered submarines, many of which are currently being modernized, including with advanced cruise missiles.

As Russia continues to build its new Yasen-class nuclear submarines and keeps modernizing the Soviet-era Shchuka-class submarines, the Russia Navy has set its sights on a fifth-generation multipurpose sub, which is already in development.

The project is known under the name "Husky" and is planned to replace the Shchuka- and Yasen-class submarines.

On Wednesday, the commander of the Russian Navy, Adm. Vladimir Korolev, reviewed the preliminary designed of a fifth-generation submarine, which was developed by St. Petersburg Marine Design Bureau "Malachite."

The research and development stage of the project is scheduled to be completed next year. The first Husky-class submarine will be laid down in 2023-2024 and will be completed by 2030, Deputy Navy Commander Vice Adm. Viktor Bursuk told Sputnik in July.

The construction will be funded under the 2018-2025 State Armaments Program, adopted in 2015 and defining massive military hardware upgrades, with the plan of 70 percent rearmament by 2020.

Open sources provide very few details on the project, but what is known already suggests that it will be a breakthrough in scientific and technological terms.

Hypersonic Arsenal
According to information from open sources, the main feature of the new Russian submarine will be armed with the 3M22 Zircon hypersonic anti-ship missile, which is already undergoing tests.

The specifications of the missile are also kept secret. It is known that the Zircon will be able to reach speeds of Mach 5-10 (5-10 times faster than the speed of sound) and hit a target at a distance of 300-500 kilometers. Currently, the Russian Navy has in service anti-ship missiles with a maximum speed of Mach 2-2.5.

"The treats are getting more obvious and more dangerous now. They need to be responded," Adm. Vladimir Komoedov, former commander of the Black Sea Fleet, told RIA Novosti. "I advocate for a multipurpose submarine with maximum versatility. It should have reliable target detections and weapons systems. In addition, it should be able to receive target information from aviation and from space."

According to Western and Russian experts, the deployment of Zircon missiles will weaken the positions of the United States’ naval force, which is based on aircraft- carrier striking groups. The National Interest’s observer Sebastien Roblin suggested that the new missile would be more dangerous for the US Navy than the Soviet-made Granit missiles (NATO reporting name Shipwreck).

According to Komoedov, the Russian Navy needs new multipurpose submarines that would be armed with a hypersonic anti-ship missile, instead of the Kalibr subsonic cruise missile.

Stealth, Equipped With Robots
The key difference between the Husky-class and the submarines of previous generations is its extremely low level of noise. According to Bursuk, the new submarine will be at least twice as silent as the Yasen- and Shchuka-class.

The construction of the Husky-class will involve light and durable composite materials. The submarine will be equipped with advanced electronic systems and will have automatic control and weapons systems. As a result, the submarine will be relatively compact and will be capable of simultaneously tracking a large number of targets.

Oleg Vlasov, head of the robotics sector of the Malakhit Marine Engineering Bureau, said that the Husky-class submarine would would be equipped with robotic systems to be used for carrying out tasks for military and civilian purposes.

"I can say that there will be robotics on the Husky, which will work in two environments. The development is already underway, now that the forms are laid out, they will be specified," Vlasov told Sputnik.

Russia's Fleet of Nuclear Submarines
The construction of fifth-generation nuclear-powered submarines will begin after the commission of seven Yasen-class (project 885) submarines, which are planned to join the Russian Navy by 2023. The flagship, the Severodvinks, is already in service.

The second submarine, the Kazan, has been floated out and is undergoing sea trials, after which it will join the military in 2018. It will be armed with 533-mm torpedoes, Kalibr-PL cruise missiles and P-800 Oniks missiles.

"A global war today is unlikely, but the risk of regional conflicts is high. Taking this into account, submarines armed with cruise missiles will be tremendously important because they can attack both surface and ground targets," Adm. Vyacheslav Popov, former commander of the Northern Fleet, told RIA Novosti.

The Russian Naval Doctrine envisages that such submarines will be the core of the multipurpose submarine force until the Husky-class submarines enter service.

According to Popov, today the most important capability of a naval force is versatility.

According to the Military Balance report by The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), the Russian multipurpose submarine force currently includes one Yasen-class submarine, 11 Shchuka-class submarines, five Antey-class subs, two Kondor submarines (project 945A) and three project 671RTM (Shchuka-class, second generation) submarines.

Currently, several project 971 submarines are undergoing modernization, including being equipped with Kalibr-PL missiles. By 2025, four Antey submarines will be upgraded with Kalibr and Oniks missiles.

Russia is currently modernizing the Battlecruiser "Pyotr Velikiy" to serve longer, along with using this, as part of an "experiment" to see how the newer weapons will fit onto our future planned destroyers.
Modernization armament package: a VLS for 20 P-800s and 20 91RT Klub ASuW missiles, a 48 cell VLS for S-400 surface to air missiles , a 48 cell VLS for S-500 Surface to air missiles, a 64 Cell VLS for S-350 surface to air missiles , 8 Pantsir-M CIWS, and Paket-NK systems
