Russia can only use 1991+ vehicles/ammunition

In this alternate history scenario,1990s Russia loses all their Soviet vehicles (tanks, jets, etc) and ammunition (artillery, missiles, etc). Either shipped overseas or just parked in ex-soviet states. The US pays for all of this.

Assume from then on history is more or less the same. How would Russia have developed militarily?

          They've lowered the conscription age from 27 to 25, if they really need to they can lower it again. It's not great though.

    They would probably have a military consisting of no more than 100k as they couldn't arm any more, to this day the vast majority of their vehicles were made before 1991

    When I was 12 I went through a period of time where I would think about or talk through irrelevant hypotheticals a lot. It was quite moronic, but luckily I grew out of it.

    >shipped overseas
    The gigantic global surplus of military gear would mean this alternate 1990s would be a bloodbath as every single warlord, dictator, revolutionary, racial supremacist, and cartel boss can suddenly get themselves an armored brigade or bomber squadron at bargain basement prices. It'd be like the yugoslavian wars on a global scale.

      Would that spread US resources thin? I'd imagine instead of having an era of relative peace and prosperity in the 1990s the US would get caught playing global shitskin cop for another decade before 9/11 happens.

    Much smaller force, MIC focused on more efficient low-cost projects to fill out desparate need for equipment, probably a lot more arms imports from others, yet still inadequate to fill the need that a decades-long backlog from your economically most prosperous periods had filled, before your compromised and vodka-enriched leadership sold everything off for personal gain. Less force projection capability, meaning even their tiny excursions into neighbor states would be a stretch, leaving them potentially vulnerable in their home territory and thus increasing the risk of rebel dissenters, terrorism, and general popular unrest; a conflict like Ukraine may not have even been sustainable up to this point without obsolescent equipment stores, from their own stock to the old stock long ago sold off to other states. Also, losing a somewhat important economic driver from selling the third world your old military gear would certainly hurt them, and also change the equipment that the third world gets flooded with, maybe much more old Chinese Soviet copies instead, who knows.
