Good Russian Weapons

We all know how comically overhyped most of the Russian arsenal has turned out to be, but are there any weapons or weapon systems that have proven themselves or even overperformed in some capacity? And if not, which parts of the Russian arsenal turned out to be the least shit?

    That's it. Don't look at Russian vehicles or even heavy weapons like rpgs for quality. They've gotten hilariously clapped every single fricking time they've faced anything western.

      Actually, add to this a whole bunch of AK derivatives and a bunch of other small arms from the Soviet period. Most are pretty decent when well maintained and properly adjusted by an armorer. But there really are none that were ever truly exceptional or overperforming. All of them just halted at this very specific 60s/70s level of material and design tech level, because of both production limitations and available cost per unit. Sure, they tried to upgrade those designs between the 80s and now, but most of them only saw marginal returns or just never saw enough adoption.

    Their ATGMs? Everyone already knew what they were like. Just dumb, simple, direct-impact goodness with big warheads.
    Arguably though, their failure to bring their modern missiles into service is another failure.

      Why is the T-80 performing better than the T90 in this war?

        It was the better design between the two (the T-90 is just an upgraded T-72) and has a decent reverse speed for a Soviet tank.

        T-72 was made because the T-64 was too advanced for its time and needed a lot of problems worked out. It was made by the same design bureau that made the T-62, which was yet again because the T-64 was too advanced. The T-72 had origins as a budget T-64. The T-80 is a true successor to the T-64 rather than being budget cope.

          To add to Anon. The T-80 arguably isn't really an upgrade on the T-64 either, it just has a different engine and the suspension from a T-72 to reduce complexity and cost. Later it added even more different elements and effectively became a different tank than what it started with. All four (T-64, T-72, T-80, and T-90) all had the same gun and similar armor
          Further, the T-90 is, arguably, just a T-72 that Russia gave a separate number for rather than calling it the T-72C (1990). Keep in mind, there is a lot of variants of Russian Tanks:

          T-64A
          T-64B and T-64BM
          T-64BV
          T-64BM2

            The T-80U has better armor than the previous T-80 which are an extension of the T-64 quartz armor. By comparison the T-90 is still dependent on the reflecting plates scheme found in the T-72 for base armor. Furthermore export models of the T-72 have even more simplified armor.

              Effectively the T-72B...T-90 family all has the same reflecting plate armor. The T-90A, M and S have a welded turret with a more uniformly shaped array but it is the same reflecting plates configuration The T-80BVM is just a T-80B's base with newer ERA and other improvements meaning while the ERA is improved in both coverage, gap reduction and the dynamic element it is still a cast steel and quartz.

                Cmon. You know you just cherrypicked stats that look good. Other parts of lend-lease contained as high as 2% of overall production.
                Please don't name some vehicle classification that they did not use and show like USA supplied them with 100% of it.

                As I said, that amount was huge by numbers, but at most it's effect was accelerating Soviet's conquest of German controlled territories and shortening the war by a year or maybe two.

                the US supplied them with 100% of it because they literally had no analogue in the east

                the only truck type that the soviets already had that the US couldnt provide is the 1.5 ton and 3-ton variety
                if the US had not provided them half-tracks, then they would have no existing replacement other than literally riding on the tank itself

                without LL trucks and jeeps they would almost certainly be forced to resort to draft animals like the germans did
                in practice, even with LL helping them they only managed to reach comparable levels of motorization as the germans

                if by different, you mean worse
                the 4x4 1.5ton truck was a godsend to soviet artillery because it could tow their field guns and howitzers
                it filled an operational niche that the soviets did not produce an answer to until after the war, by copying the dodge 4x4
                and the 6x6 truck was hilariously better than all existing trucks the soviets had, even their best truck the ZIS was still a two-wheel drive
                because we all know how well-paved and car friendly russia is
                same with the half-track, the soviets literally had no answer to it other than having grasping on

                it is almost impossible to overstate the level of mobility this grants an army
                draft animals can only operate about 50km from a rail head, trucks can do 200km, and with far fewer hands

                the increasing ability for soviet forces to sustain offensive operations deeper and deeper behind enemy lines as the war went on has a lot to do with the proper motorisation of these high-quality units.

                ZiS-5 and GAZ-AA were also both license versions of American truck models, too.

                As for half-track M3 and M5, it's crazy how much better they were than basically any APC of the war. Especially with the comparative ease of maintenance and servicing and low cost.

          Ukraine made russia resort to launching missiles from Caspian sea and further with just 4-5 batteries of S300, some buks and S125 and an ancient but functional radar network. And this "setup" was able to achieve ~80% interception rate.
          Note that this system is nowhere near 1980s level, using human equivalent it's like if you'd starve someone for many years, poke their eyes and ears out, lobotomise them, then fix up a lil bit and call that "healthy".

                elaborating, the system was designed to withstand a much more powerful opponent, so even being a shell of former self, it was able to destroy a lot of russian planes and helis which made russians shoot missiles from inside their borders. When deployed in proper numbers and as designed, as it was in the 80s (several rings of AA around the biggest cities+AA on the most important objects+AA coverage of the entire country+proper radar network+smaller range AA for tactical level), it would be completely impenetrable for russia and would inflict very high casualties even on modern USAF

                I'm Ukrainian, moron. I completely understand that the remnants of soviet propaganda that su=russia are still going strong and affecting how an average westerner perceives a given soviet system, but you need to remember that su didn't consist just of russians. Yes, by the late 80s and 90s you could already say that equipment was manned by drunks, but it was on a much smaller scale. Thousands of times smaller than in modern russia

                Please stop thinking in absolutes. Yes, some soviet equipment is bad. T-72, for example. But that doesn't mean everything that SU developed is bad. I'll remind again, SU military budget was three times bigger than the entire budget of russian federation, and the corruption was nowhere near modern russian. It did exist, of course, but at the very least military money weren't spent on superyachts

                >Russia is very large. So large that it spans not just the Moscow area of Europe, but all the way into Asia!
                It would be like the US saying "America is so big! We have Alligators and Polar bears!" Which is honestly an impressive statement.
                However, the problem is that it is delivered with ZERO context or point. Nobody questions that Russia is large, every schoolchild knows about Siberian tigers, and what does the artist expect from this? A gold medal? An applause?
                It's sort of like the Onion's Kelly, who has these weird personal comics that only he would truly understand.

                Kelly is honestly kinda genius just as a concept. It's kinda hilarious to see some oddly personal Pail of Pokemon Creatures comics that make no sense chronicle the gradual neurodegeneration of a man whose time ended long ago, it's like seeing Sam Hyde's Baby Boomer impressions but with 2 degrees of separation and having to decipher it yourself

            MiG-31 has performed well but it has its fair share of issues (like having a double decker bus-sized RCS). but using them for hit and run long standoff attacks has proven very effective.

            Russian SAMs have worked well as well in several conflicts when used in the right hands with proper tactics for the job. I honestly couldn't tell you though how well they stack up to Western and other SAMs. Serbia did buy the Chinese FK-3/HQ-22 over the S-400, so Russia's latest and greatest SAM may not be super cost-effective. latest Buk and Tor systems are pretty nice though.

            Russian ATGMs aren't half bad either. they aren't gonna win any design awards but they're proven systems, Kornet-E also benefits from having a super long range for a (relatively) man-portable system at 8-10km depending on warhead type.

            interesting to see how Russia practices open defecation. I've always heard India had some street shitters, but I wouldn't expect the Russians to be tree-shitters.

          That's just the downside of being early adopters of assault rifles and using a shortened cartridge like the krauts before.

        • 1 year ago
          Anonymous

          It has to be some kind of mistranslation. I mean, sure people have different standards for lakes. But by any reasonable standard, most countries have at least triple digit numbers of lakes, outside of micronations and africans anyway. Just to put an example France has an estimated 380 lakes, and Spain next to it has an estimated 500 lakes (and yes, that's culling all the small ones. It has a bit over 2500 natural concentrations of drinking water, aka ponds and shit), not that that number is in any way impressive when compared to literally anywhere in northern europe where they count them by the hundreds of thousands. And as for Russia, even counting "great lakes" (over 0.1sqkm), it still has over 201,200 according to the latest listing (yes I had to look it up).

          So... is the term for "lake" something else in Russian? Do they have 15 specific lakes they really really like? Wtf is going on. I mean. This is like USA going "I have 15 guns!" You got a hell of a lot more than 15 my guy!

    Their modern drones worked well from the start it was just so comically small. Their Syrian trained 5th generation (state-of-the-art) war complex (AD/drones/strikes) seem to have been more than sufficient too but again too small and optimized for defense.

    3. Most of their artillery is still pretty vicious (tbf all artillery is vicious), they're just using it awfully and don't have infinite ammunition
    4. Not great but it seems like if you strap that big frick-off stand-off missile (Kihnzahl? can't fricking remember) to a Mig-31 it seems to deter the Ukrainians at least.

        Move the t-90 and add ags-30 to performed and I would agree
        also Orlan is the main reason ukrain have losses at all so if anything has overperformed it's Orlan

        1. Ukrainians made a lengthy video mocking the T-90 series after going over its flaws. They get regularly destroyed by ATGMs, they break down and get abandoned by their crews. Ukrainians even argued it was inferior to a fully upgraded T-72. Given the costs involved, I think it should be kept in underperforming. Your best tank would not be the subject of ridicule if it was performing well.

        2. The Terminator and its inaccurate fire and obvious lack of mission profile has been the subject of much internet mockery. It has no substantial victories or videos to its credit, it has been regularly taken out and even captured. I know of no videos of praise from Ukrainians or Russians over its performance. It is a flawed platform that is not showing it was worth the development and production costs over simply adding more BMP3's to Russia's IFV fleet.

        3. Multiple Ka-52's have been taken out by Ukrainian anti-tank missiles. Not stingers, not western ATGMs, Ukrainian designed and built laser-guided Stugnas. Their countermeasures have been visibly ineffective in more than one video and there is a ton of evidence to show them having wing trembling due to fatigue/overloading/poor maintenance/poor-design. Ukraine says that, despite Russian claims about being impervious to small arms, they're actually vulnerable to 7.62 rounds. They're dropping like flies according to OSINT data, and Russia doesn't have enough of them in the first place. An overbuilt, un-survivable, flying trashcan.

    Anything India has bought since the 2000s would be a good bet.

    Russian arms purchased even though Western/alternatives were available. Looking at the T-90, Su-30MKI, ak203, etc. And India tends to upgrade these to be better than the Russian version too - Indian T90s don't waste time with pointless Shtora systems, Indian T-72s use their own upgraded FCS, the list goes on.

    Looking at what India cancelled/refused to buy is even more telling. Su-57, Su-75 (for now), Ka-31...India opted for Derby missiles after noting that the R77 sucked.

So one russian drone that costs 200 Dollars takes out fascist jet that costs 115 million per unit! This is why Russia will win the special military operation.

    I can understand why Russians would publish completely moronic lies because they are in a bubble, few real information will even counter their lies while disobeying mean their child will report and have them sent to Gulag.

    But the western guys,
    The ones who actually have to reverse overwhelming obvious proof Russia are the bloody invader.
    The ones who have their own agenda and shouldn't want to be seen as Russian pawns
    The ones who should know repeating a lie don't work if it's so bad it's counter productive
    So what it is? Trying to cater to Moskow to have money sent their way? Just ads money from clic-bait picture? Do I overestimate human intellect again?

    I know, I know, sane people don't need these extra caption. It's the perspective, if I didn't know more from Garisson I'd think he's fighting against Russia by satirizing their moronic logic.

          Ben "Gas 'em All" Garrison is a failed political cartoonist that has a modicum of artistic talent, but no sense of wit. As a result, he's infamous for labeling absolutely everything with text because he doesn't get how real political cartoons work.

          It's therefore funny to just swap out all of his labels with 'cum' because his cartoons have zero visual context without the book's worth of labels.

Personally I do not like the style of Charlie Hebdo, but I can inmediately understand the message/joke of about half of their covers and I do not even speak french. Note how on pic related the human figure does not have a label saying "THE PROPHET MOHAMED" and the sign does not say "THE HIPOCRISY OF FALSE SOLIDARITY OF THE ELITES" or some shit like that.

      the russian shilling on twitter has been a wakeup call tho - after gg and blm and the last near-decade of culture warring i was pretty on board with people like Ian Miles Cheong and Posobiec and such and such. their attitudes since the war started made me realize i'd been an absolute fricking fool for sticking with a side like that.

        It is funny the Russian discovered the US, as brainwashed as it is by pro-business/plutocrat/right-wings/whatever propaganda, will still fight against anything-Soviet out of sheer habit.
        Had the Monkey Putin not been riding on Soviet-memes, he would have it easier pretending to be a counter to (nonRussian) imperialism.

    All Russian tanks are good tanks, especially for their era

    T-62s and T-72s were very impressive when they came out

    Soviet Anti-Air systems also proved themselves very effective in the 60's/70's

    Soviet rocket artillery also gets the job done

      No, stop. The T-62 was roughly equivalent to western MBTs when it came out.

      The T-64 WOULD have been impressive had it not suffered so many early teething issues and a decade ahead of its time. The T-72 was, and always has been garbage. The T-80 is fine, but by the time it came out, the west had Abrams and Leopard II.

      Soviets SAM systems were fine in the 1950's to 1980's but by the 1990's had fallen behind the west and are now one SEAD/DEAD campaign by mass stealth fighters from irrelevancy.

      Soviet Rocket Artillery has been demonstrably ineffective in Ukraine due to their lack of precision.

    Anything with the potential to be good has been stifled by a crippling lack of maintenance.

      Russians are forced to shoots 50 shells per target because they can't hit anything, shells spread likes 20 meter away.
      Western weapons hit a 1m target per shell but there's a lot of Russian to kill and only gave Ukraine a tenth of their stocks.
