Russia’s defense industry cannot fully equip itself for greater manpower mobilization; it needs to dramatically increase its capacity, which will take a long time.

The Russian defense industry, in all probability, will not be able to fully supply the new reserves of equipment and weapons, despite the ability of the Russian Army to maintain the current pace of operations and efforts to expand the defense industry of Russia. This was stated in the ISW report on Sunday, February 4.

According to ISW analysts, the Russian command has a tendency to wrongly view part of the reserve as a “bottomless barrel.” It is reported that the Russian industry is capable of producing about 250-300 “new and modern” tanks annually.

In addition, Russian factories can repair and operate no more than 250-300 tanks after long-term storage or after damage in battles. It was noted that even taking into account the higher estimates, the Russian defense industry is unlikely to be able to provide equipment for a larger mobilization of manpower, and it will probably need to increase its capabilities to support the large offensive operations, which will take a long time.

At the same time, ISW experts continue to believe that Russia will be able to expand its technical base and accumulate resources if it maintains the initiative in the entire theater of military operations until 2024, although it is unlikely to provide significant number of mobilized reservists. or conscripts.

Let’s recall that according to the latest data from the General Staff, since the beginning of the large-scale war, Russia has lost 6,343 tanks.
