        it's honestly the only way to actually kill anything. most nato warships will have good air defense and you don't have enough anti-ship missiles to kill them (unless the russians have been smart which we know they haven't in this area they blew their load a year into ukraine), your electronic warfare probably isn't good enough to get close enough to the ships to kill them, and you can't win a stand up air to air fight against anything nato has. all nato ground based air defenses are monsters too. the only way to do any damage is to expend fighters in moronic nuclear strikes or use nuclear armed ballistic/cruise missiles.

      Invade? Motherfricker at this point Kaliningrad is going to be a financial liability. It was supposed to be a wedge between Baltic states and rest of Nato. Now that advantage is gone and burried.

      Why invade it, when Russia will be wasting millions on maintaining base that dosen't justify this kind of expenditure? Frick. I bet nobody would even want to take that shithole even if Russia will be offering it for free or even paying anyone willing to take it.

    probably send a bunch of troops into Finland and the Baltic states in a near suicidal rush very early on to give them more to deal with, then keep as many of my aircraft airborne as possible to do around the clock suicidal bombing runs of nato forces. the moment they begin hitting any of my air bases, c2 nodes, or anything else fricking nuke them. try a few nuclear dumb bomb air strikes against nato shipping.

    having good relations with NATO, simple as

    its either bite the bullet and give up the moronic imperialist larp from 300 years ago so you can stably integrate into the European economic/political environment (don't necessarily have to try to adopt the political institutional changes required to join the EU and NATO) OR be drawn inevitably into the Chinese economic orbit as a clear junior partner. we saw it before 2012, Russia was able to mostly play nice, make shit tons of money, and have access to Western expertise in technology and industrial development by just having mostly normal (if a bit distant) relations with the Europeans like the Middle East does (and China did before wolf warrior autism and then the Ukraine War fricked it). Europeans are happy to trade with all sorts of autocrats provided they are stable and practice healthy moderation with the human rights abuses. China operates illegal secret police offices in other countries to crack down on their expats, showing they don't give a frick about sovereignty, and East Russia is full of Chinese people already. for frick sake they quietly updated their state maps to use Chinese names for places in Eastern Russia and are actively selling drones and equipment to the Ukrainians at the same time as their 'no limits partner' Russia (while steadfastly adhering to Western sanctions of their own freewill).

        That's the underlying socio-strategic basis for the Russian ways of war and military management. A competent force threatens the Tsar but an incompetent politically nepotistic force does not. Fine for internal security (the main reason for the armed forces) but less fine against motivated military opponents.

      Had Ukraine fallen as their propaganda claimed it had on Feb 24th, 2022 they would have moved onto Moldova and Georgia - likely at the same time. This would have then left them with Armenia (who likely would have 'democratically' joined Russia out of fear of a war, how Russia is stronk and for 'protection' from Azerbaijan). Then Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan would be next on the list. Then the rest of the -stans. By that point China is no longer the dominant power in the East and has to - reluctantly - respect Russia. This then leads to them fighting over Mongolia (which China is trying to turn into a puppet state ala Burma). After that? Well the Baltics, most likely.

    Now as Russia I can maybe invade Poland. It is still finnicky. But Finland is pain due to terrain, plus there is not much to gain. Poland economy is fairly ok and it would boost my state further assuming i take control. It's a stupid plan full of gambles, but this what I came up with when one friend of a friend who is in a SOF said to me that some analysts analyzed the shit and they assume eventual Russian invasion against Poland. It might be just bullshit hearsay though. Plus we in eastern Europe always assume that Russians are planning something.

    But personally I hope that country with biggest nuclear arsenal balkanizes, would be funny.

      At the beginning of the war, "military experts" were talking about all the capabilities Russia had and Ukraine should surrender immediately. One of the weapons Russia supposedly had was EMP missiles that could shut off all the electricity in Ukraine.

          Technically, most nukes could be emps if you detonate them at the right altitude. It's just that everyone else will have made their nukes detonate at the altitude to be nukes and respond to the launch instead of the landing.

    >How would YOU contest a nato dominated baltic sea as russia?
    I wouldnt contest it, neither will russia.
    Basically if you opponent hard dominates some area or some thing its strategically often smarter to approach things asymetrically and focus elsewhere, where you opponent is weaker. In a basic RTS terms, if your opponent rushes mass Phoenixes in PvP, it is way too late to queue up some stargates and start producing your own, you just flatout lose, so you look alternatives like giving up air control and focusing on stalkers for harrasment and cannons to keep you alive.

    In this baltic case the only real strategy would be to focus your fleet assets to north sea or pacific and search for an advantage there - like disrupting shipping and communication cables in North Sea - while ignoring the baltic sea completely.
    Russians know this anyway, they are not 100% moronic, there is a reason why baltic fleet is already just bunch of third rate junk.

    By simply investing the entirety of my gold reserves into the Trump Campaign and RNC in order to have America leave NATO, taking the piggy bank and main arms supplier out of the equation. I then tell Putin and whatever is left of the loyal oligarchs to race to the floor and start to kissass Donny on what a strong leader he is, and how strong and independent from Europe this makes the US look. I then divert whatever cash I have left under the sofa to pay the Dalits in Hinduistan to run a shillfarm dedicated solely to running EU exit campaigns.

        Because by the time the Germans and Poles realize they're gonna have to start going full14/88, I'll hope that my Dalit cash cows have successfully convinced all the morons who actually vote across the Eurozone that not being part of the EU is actually based, and that X country wasn't pulling their weight and was tanking their home country's economy and defense spending. Once the EU defense treaty is null and void, and Trump pulls all US aid (and subsequently doubles Israel's aid package to $8 billion a year at the behest of Kushner), I then flatten Ukraine with every last Katyusha, Kinzal, FAB, and Sahad I can find.
        Again, purely hypothetical. I just figured that the Terminal Boomerism that Americans are facing will keep anything Trump does for at least 20 years. See how the majoraty of young people and those under 60 want to rejoin the EU, but the boomers who actually vote keep electing Tories to run the UK into the ground. They're finally gonna know the joy of private healthcare like their US brethren, and they're gonna find out how fun it is when you loosen renters protection and sell all the public apartments to Indians, and watch them raise the rates a measly 45%.

      Doesn't actually work because there are powers that be that aren't too keen on derailing their geopolitical strategies over the whims of a few hicks at the polling stations.

            Pedophiles don't suddenly stop just because they get caught. It is very possible that the Russians are blackmailing Ritter with something that could send him back to the joint for a long time.

            Russians like Scott because he was one of the few people who was outspoken in his belief that Iraq and Afghanistan had no WMD's during the GWOT. It seems to be a broken clock situation though, because around the same time Scott also was adamant that the US Military would be shattered by the regular forces of Iraq.

        He even speaks like the average /chug/ user, I'm convinced they're briefed on some sort of propaganda script, either that or they're just copying each others speech patterns due to doing nothing but speaking to each other every day all day.

        What's even funnier is Scott Ritter Child Diddler sat in front of thousands of soldiers on Chechnya and made a moronic speech, how anyone can say he's an American Patriot after that is beyond belief.

Without that coastline they don't have a hope in hell of leaving St. Petersburg, and its guaranteed that there will be damn near silent diesel-electric subs creeping about just itching to sink anything that does leave dock. You'd need air control to deal with the sub threat first and that's no easy task when fighting against NATO.
    Their best hope is to split up NATO first, but they fricked that option up by invading Ukraine.

    In fact they would just be far better off going and re-conquering the USSR's more easterly provinces first, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and just forgetting about anything NATO controlled. Plenty of land they can grab relatively easily there and make their population think that they're a great nation again able to conquer others. Trying to expand into Europe is just suicide.

    Strategically Russia shouldn't sweat it. If they weren't moronic they'd be investing in massive upgrades to Murmansk's ports and infrastructure to take advantage of the metric frick ton of new shipping bypassing the Suez and Panama canals. Russia could be setting itself up to be the shipping mecca of Europe.

    But instead they decided to roll in the mud over a highway to crimea, a semi decent natural gas basin, and juuust enough new land to bury their dead on.

      Yup. And if their belligerence continues, they will be preparing to get Murmarsk bombed.

      On an unrelated tangent did you know that NATO already has B61-capable WS3 lockers in northern Finland? Pretty close to Murmarsk. And Finland is getting F35s soon. What a funny string of coincidences.

    Russia already stood no chance of competing in the Baltic anyway and it wouldn't have made sense to try even before they joined. RU would have to commit forces to St Petersburg to deal with Finland rather than concentrate fully on the Baltics. Sweden is basically a non-factor except as a staging point for harassment, but would likely be untouchable and should just be ignored except as a target for missiles and bombs.

    Strategy would be to blitz the highway between Vyborg and Turku before Finland can get up to wartime strength. Would be a good trade if this meant the loss of Kaliningrad but splitting offensive capability between Estonia / Finland would lessen the chances of success in either and NATO is both more ready to defend Estonia than Finland and will also have an easier time reinforcing and supplying large troop movements there.

    Then dig in or go for the Baltics depending on how the cookie crumbles.

      Some issues with this:
      1. Russia couldn't even fricking blitz Kyiv after months of build up.
      2. Russia would in no way shape or form have air superiority here. NATO would 100% be fricking the Russians from the air the whole time.
      3. Pretty much all of Finland is a densely forrested swamp intersperesed with thousands of lakes. And the Finnish road network in the eastern parts of the country is intentionally constructed to frick up any advance from the Russian side. This isn't a good place to blitz anything.

        Ukraine had 300k troops in position at the start of the invasion, roughly outnumbering Russia 3:2, versus Finland's standing army of ~25k. Airpower or not Finland doesn't have the bodies to stand up to what Russia has IF they get caught off guard.

        It's a whole other story if they get up strength but the idea here is not to engage NATO in Finland because its a great place to fight but to engage Finland before NATO has its ducks in a row to keep it from being the monumental pain in the ass it has the potential to be for all the reasons you've described.

        Occupying Finland is also a huge political bargaining chip in the sense that Russia has no reasons or interest in annexation or long-term occupation and could probably get away with extracting some nice concessions in exchange for leaving if its a fait accompli and both sides get nervous and don't want things to spiral any further than they already will have by that point

          You simply can't mass enough forces that matter and supply them near the very few possible routes of invasion without tipping things of weeks if not months in advance. And the orders to actually attact would be known by western spooks before the commanders themselves, like it happened already. The only reason it worked in Ukraine was that the ukes were afraid of angering russia if they reacted and were desperately hoping that russia was a rational actor. No way that happens with Finland where they've been preparing for this for almost a century now. And that was before the great banan retrieval attempt.

            Finlands population is only 5.5 million. If we assume a standard demographic pyramid, (which we shouldn't because Finland is european) then that means Finland can only draw on a maximum of 2.1 million troops IF they conscript every man and woman between the ages of 18 and 50. Ukraine has that many men under arms after two years of war and they're starting to buckle; Finland would have no chance in a prolonged fight (without reinforcement)

            Strategic ambiguity and a boy-cried-wolf approach with enough time could create an opening. Start massing tanks outside st Pete to encourage 175k western reservists to interrupt their cushy lives and sit in a trench in -40c weather and then sit there menacingly for a bit.

      The strategic depth that the alliance with Sweden gives means that for all intents and purposes they can move their troops to the moon for reconstitution. On top of that Sweden literally have their own MIC with their own fighter program, which by all accounts is very formidable and it will be supplemented by NATO intelligence and air control assets.

      So the air war is instantly lost, logsitics are now too vast and deep to ever be cut, and never forget that it's fricking Finland and we know how pozziyans invading there works out.

        All true, BUT there is reason to believe that Russia's fertility rate could be recovered by those liberties for three reasons:
        1. Less gangsterism means more security means more people are comfortable having kids and raising families
        2. More economic well-being means its easier for people to justify having and affording children
        3. Better political and economic conditions means fewer young people migrating to richer countries and maybe having their children there
        Then there's also the immigration pull 'line goes up arguments but you already covered that.
        The tough thing about industrial fertility rates is that no one has an idea on how to fix them. The only correlation that exists with high fertility is female social agency, commonly referred to as 'median female education attainment', and short of turning the clock back on feminism by 200 years, with female consent, that isn't a solution. Even Hungarys solution of basically bribing women to have three children didn't do anything more than bring Hungary's fertility rate back up to about replacement level.

          This is also a temporary solution at best; if immigrants ''assimilate'' (Which you'd theoretically want them too) they will be affected by whatever is stopping the locals from breeding
          >short of turning the clock back on feminism by 200 years,
          Yeah i think that might be the only solution
          In a scenario where you are in charge of Russia you could potentially pull it of; since you already have a structure in place to control people
          Granted not even Iran's birthrate is that good
          >Even Hungarys solution of basically bribing women to have three children
          This might work but pherhaps more extreme; no retirement or gibs for people who don't reproduce
          Anyway if i was in charge of Russia the main priority would be increasing the birth rate somehow; in the long run the first power to do that wins (At the end only rivals left are even shittier backwaters that breed more and dying boomer nations)

    Czech defense policy chief, Jan Jires, brings the heat:
    "Some crucial segments of the European defense industry are now performing better than US defense industry....Rheinmetall in Germany is producing way more 155 artillery shells than the entire US defense industry combined."

    Yeah, this reminds me of that quote "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve."

    The Europeans DO KNOW how to wage war. Just because they have been sleeping like a beauty for the past half a century doesn't mean that they have forgotten. And if you wake them up and give them a reason to genuinely start arming themselves, shit might get real ugly surprisingly fast.

      It better. Someone needs to pick up the slack.
      This time the starting positions of the pieces are great compared to WWI and WWII. Only good things can come out of this. Feel free to quote me on that once the world is a frick.

      It fills me with a warm fuzzy feeling knowing Europeans are finally starting to gain some sense back into themselves. EU has been the most successful peace project in history, no one in Europe aside from Russia wants war, but it also made everyone except few nations like Finland too soft. Glad that we're finally fixing that part.

      Absolutely no one on this world wants a militarized imperialistic europe besides some hawks from the old continent dreaming of the good old days.

      That's a great way to get ganged up by the other Great Powers. China, India, Russia, and the USA will have a very big say in this process if it ever begins.

        What value does the USA derive from running global security? How does that value compare to the expense? Can that value be substituted by other means?

        I'll answer for you:
        >trade relations and resource access to global markets allows the US to swiftly and cheaply import virtually anything they want for almost no cost
        >this is achieved at the cost of $800 billion per year in defense spending on top of tens of billions of dollars of international bribes and discretionary spending, as well as domestic economic dislocation from lack of import tariffs
        >luxury goods such as French wine or Italian cars cannot be replaced fully, but domestic production can come close. Dirt cheap foreign manufacturing can be found in countries like Columbia and Venezuala, which are much closer and have less baggage than India or Indonesia
        tl;dr the USA spends tons of money that it doesn't have to maintain access to top-tier luxury goods and international influence that supports global endeavors. From the POV of a Paradox player, it's bad to ket that go. From the POV of the guy footing the bill, its a joke

          You're being a moron. The point of NATO is to prevent nuclear proliferation by bringing countries that have very clear and justified reasons to desire nukes (i.e. Eastern Europe) under the US nuclear umbrella, thereby keeping nukes under US control. Remember, you aren't dealing with thirdie countries that are only a couple of generations removed from mud-huts here, the Europeans can start building nukes tomorrow if they want to.

            That sounds like a job for an international agency to enforce international non-proliferation treaties. But even this answer builds on the previous, because the US is shouldering the burden to prevent international incidents for free

      They pretty much program themselves you'd just need to keep pointing it out
      So people either see you as an alternative to this or lean hard on it saying any opposition to it is treason to their values (The enemy hates it, so it must be good!)
      Also work hard on removing those problems from your country while you are it (Russia is failing this)

    If I were expecting imminent war, I would send the whole fleet out to sea before the enviable blockade is put in place. I would order them to cause as much havoc on NATO supply lines before getting sunk. Hopefully they can cause some trade disruption before being destroyed.

    Like Ukraine did - drones, a lot of naval drones. Very cheap, very effective, everyone would be shitting themselves and civilian vessels would leave ports only in heavily guarded convoys. Any Nordic naval commerce would basically cease to be.
