I don't think It would be that easy for Russia to sweep easily Ukraine aside. Yeah, Ukraine would be defeated in a conflict with Russia but it won't be an easy defeat and Russia would have a lot to lose in such a conflict. Remember if the Ukrainian army isn't that of 2014 and if Russia had not intervened, Ukraine would have crushed those separatists by now.

Russia would simply brush the Ukrainian army aside.

If you follow trends in Russian military modernization you won't be talking like this.

Which ukraine are you talking about. The one in 2021 or 2014. Most takes of the ukrainian army uses oplot-m tanks, where did the nigerian army bought the btr-4 from? Are you serious. The readiness of the ukrainian army presently is far better than what it was in 2021.
As for the ukrainian airforce, most of their aircraft are maintained and upgraded by the ukrainian defense industry.
And please also know the mass of russian army still use the t-72mb3 which is an upgrade from the basic t-72. Only elite units in the russian armed forces use the t-90 and not even the modernized t-90ms which india is buying. Yeah Russia is a force to reckon with but don't underestimate the ukrainians.

Ukrainian army only has 150 units of Oplot M, the bulk of Ukraine army tank consists of T-62's.


The Ukrainian Air Force is practically nonexistent, consisting of very old MIG-29s, SU-27 and SU-25 fighter jets.

The T-72B3 is considered to be one of the world's best tank, taking into account cost, production, firepower and quantity.

Russia has the world's second largest military.

The UKRANIANS are a corrupt bunch and not even worth the hassle . In 2009-20014 They sold second hand Helicopters to Nigeria ...... and also Tanks with one utterly corrupt regime dealing with another corrupt regime the inevitable would happen the Tanks were not delivered on time or even at all . There actually is a y - tube video of their shenanigans. The Congolese Army also ordered T-62 Tanks during that time : Red tape , Ukrainians demonstrating outside the Tank Factory asking why the T-62S were not sent to THEIR War front would put an end to that disgraceful saga . An embarrassed NIGERIA would have to turn the CZECH republic who would give them SURPLUS to REQUIREMENTS base model T72 Tanks it would be 2016/2017 before Ivan would get over the fact that Nigeria voted with the West over the annexation of Crimea . IVAN in 2015 would tell the OUTGOING GEJ administration next time just vote NEUTRAL before they would sell Nigeria Brand New MI-35s and MI-171E . Nigeria would get the spares for the T72s from Russia, Serbia and the CZECH Republic. Nigeria rued the day she did biz with the Ukrainians.

Yes, that was Mansur Dan Ali, I remember him saying Nigeria ordered 35 tanks.

The Sipri report isn't conclusive.

It is very expensive to operate and manage.

Even countries capable of building their own at home only have 1-2 aircraft carriers.

Russia and France only have 1 but china is pushing for 4 already(thanks to US)

Russia doesn't have an aircraft carrier..
Not my words but their military doesn't consider what they have an aircraft carrier..
China has the economy to carter for them also France in a way..
My shock is Brazil having an aircraft carrier like for what reason it amazes me..
Turkey buying Brazil aircraft carrier for research to build their own is understandable because of turkey position as a military power

Second ex-Italian FREMM frigate delivered to Egypt


The Egyptian Navy's newest FREMM frigate ENS Bernees.
The Egyptian Navy has received the second FREMM frigate, ENS Bernees, from Italy. The vessel arrived in Alexandria on 14 April.

ENS Bernees was formerly the Emilio Bianchi before being acquired by the Egyptian Navy. The first vessel, ENS Al Galala (ex Spartaco Schergat), arrived in Alexandria on 31 December.

The Egyptian Ministry of Defence said the ENS Bernees’s reception ceremony was attended by a number of former Egyptian Navy leaders, the Italian Military Attachment in Cairo, and a number of students of military colleges and Alexandria University.
The Ministry added that the vessel will help Egypt secure its borders, support and protect land forces along the coast during offensive and defensive operations, and secure natural resources in the Mediterranean and Red Seas.

It was reported in early 2020 that Egypt was interested in buying two FREMM frigates from Italy, drawn from the Italian Navy’s procurement programme – the vessels Spartaco Schergat and Emilio Bianchi, launched in January 2019 and January 2020, respectively – enabling Fincantieri to sell the vessels for an estimated cost of €1.2 billion.

Naval News reports that the Italian government authorised the sale in August last year. The deal was apparently jeopardised by concerns over Egypt’s human rights record, especially after Italian student Giulio Regeni was tortured and murdered in Cairo in 2016.

The frigate sale is apparently part of a larger deal that includes four more frigates, 20 Falaj class corvettes, 24 Eurofighter Typhoon fighters, 24 M346 jet trainers, and a surveillance satellite, but it is not clear how far along these deals are to being signed. Leonardo has already received an 871 million euro contract to supply 24 AW149 and eight AW189 helicopters to Egypt’s military, some of which will be used aboard navy ships.

The Italian L’Espresso weekly news magazine reported on 28 March that Fincantieri had submitted a request to export two more FREMMs to Egypt, which it said was evidence that Cairo wants to exercise an option in its contract for additional vessels. L’Espresso reported that these would be delivered in 2025, further delaying the delivery of the replacements for the Italian Navy.

Egypt’s interest in the FREMM frigates – as well as its decision in 2019 to procure up to six warships from Germany, at least three of which are Meko frigates – came as Cairo’s relationship with France cooled and military procurement shifted towards other European suppliers. However, Egypt is believed to once again be interested in acquiring further military hardware from France, including Rafale fighters

Al Galala (FFG 1002) is in ‘general purpose’ configuration and armed with a Leonardo 127/64 mm LightWeight (LW) mm gun, a 76/62 mm Super Rapido gun and two 25 mm guns as well as the MBDA SAAM-ESD (Surface Anti-Air Missile – Extended Self-Defence) Air Defence Missile system able to launch the Aster family of surface-to-air missiles. Some sensitive equipment particular to the Italian Navy, including electronic warfare systems, have apparently been removed.

The Italian Navy’s Carlo Bergamini-class FREMM frigates have a full load displacement of about 6 500 tons, an overall length of about 144 meters and can reach a top speed of 27 knots with a maximum cruising range of 6 800 nautical miles at 15 knots.
