Russia’s new state armament programme

The newly approved state armament programme (GPV 2027) will form the basis of Russia’s defence procurement and military priorities until 2027.

Nevertheless, one should not overstate the pace of probable modernization. While some progress may be made in the development of new-generation equipment, the armed forces will probably still rely on a mix of legacy hardware and modernized Soviet systems alongside new designs.
