Kavkaz-2020 War Games Begin In Russia Involving 80,000 Troops From China, Pakistan And More

On September 21st, the Kavkaz (or Caucasus) 2020 military exercises kicked off in Russia, with the participation of China, Pakistan and other countries.

According to a statement of the Russian Ministry of Defense, Russia’s Armed Forces will pay particular attention to combating cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles.

“The Kavkaz-2020 drills will particularly focus on combating cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as on fire and electronic warfare activities against entire enemy formations, on training airborne troops’ vertical envelopment capability and ways to rapidly shift between military activities,” the message reads.

The decision was made based on the experience gained during various armed conflicts, including the Syrian one.

Another focus will be on using weapons and military equipment at different times of the day and conducting deep-penetration raids.

The Kavkaz-2020 drills, led by Chief of the General Staff Army General Valery Gerasimov. The Kavkaz-2020 exercise will be held from September 21 to 26 on the territory of the Southern Military District, in Black and Caspian seas.

The exercise involves about 80,000 personnel.

The troops include officers of the Russian Emergencies Ministry and the Russian Guard, as well as up to 1,000 troops from Armenia, Belarus, China, Iran, Myanmar and Pakistan.

About 12,900 troops are going to take part in activities covered by the 2011 Vienna Document of the Negotiations on Confidence-and Security-Building Measures.

Fighter jets of Russia’s Southern Military District are on combat duty within the framework of the Kavkaz-2020 drills that started on Monday, the Russian Defense Ministry’s press service informed.

“Crews of Su-27 and Su-30SM fighter jets of the Southern Military District are on combat air defense duty at operative airfields in the Republic of Crimea, the Krasnodar, Stavropol and Rostov Regions within the strategic command post drills Kavkaz-2020,” the ministry informed.

About 60 Ilyushin Il-76 military transport planes have been moved to operational airfields as part of the exercise.

“The flights were carried out from the planes’ home airfields in the Tver, Pskov, Orenburg, Ulyanovsk and Rostov regions. About 60 Il-76 military transport aircraft have been moved,” a Ministry of Defense statement said.

Pakistan in particular presents the participation in the war games as quite significant, and a big policy goal of its own.

“For Pakistan, this has long been a foreign policy goal. Over the years we have seen successive governments make overtures to regional players and try to improve contact where possible. Kavkaz 2020 is the perfect opportunity for this. Military engagement as part of an exercise is a very positive means to engage in security relations with the states present and a good way to show our prowess in all matters related to defence. Any potential to form links with CAR countries is an avenue that should be explored,” Pakistani media reported.

Chinese troops arrived in Russia approximately a week ago to prepare for the exercises.

Three Y-20 transport planes landed at a military airport in the Astrakhan Region, Russia on Sunday. This is the first time that the Y-20 transport aircraft formation have performed transnational airlift for heavy equipment along a brand-new route, covering a one-way flight distance of nearly 5,000 kilometers with the flight duration exceeding seven hours.

The Chinese participating troops consist of a exercise directing team, a joint operations commanding team, a combined battle group, a commanding support team, a logistics and equipment support team, and a medical support team.

Meanwhile, reports of Russian aggression and Chinese assistance on that matter are yet to begin following the start of the exercises.

Prior to that, of course, there were numerous calls that this was an aggressive presentation of force, since most of the activities take part in the Southern Military District in Russia, as well as the Caspian and Black Seas, so it is a “threat” towards Ukraine, among others.

unmanned aerial vehicles and russia is oxymoron but china can assist…

Lone Ranger

Not really.
Its a common misconseption.
Russia already hat supersonic drones in the 60s.
They only lacked prop driven long duration drones, but they have that too no, both light and heavy.
Russia will be probably the first to deploy a heavy combat drone in the loyal wingman set up.

Servet Köseoğlu

keyword:russia will be probably but currently russia is just like prep-school boy in this area..here a perfect source for you to make things clear even director of company kronstad confess..title explains everything:even turkey is ahead of russia in uavs..https://www.vpk-news.ru/articles/58538?fbclid=IwAR1-V7N6uiVB6djhegTiLvrAcsV9SAHIw30RNcR1jQC8-dO0xBJvcb3ATk8

Lone Ranger

Thats desinformation bro.
Either by Russia itself or by a third party.
Fact is Russia is using drones over Syria, combat drones as well.

Servet Köseoğlu

ı dont think its disinfo its pure confession stating facts one by one but ok..ı will not insist since ı have a respect to you..russians recon drones generally forpost israel blueprints(The Russian Defense Ministry decided to import drones from Israel following the conflict in South Ossetia in 2008)

Lone Ranger

Im aware of that.
But 12 years is a long time.
They have heavy combat drones now as well, both prop driven and stealth- jet powered configuration.
The prop driven one was showcased a few days ago at their arms expo, you can order it.

I want to see the IDF and TSK do tranings together again, to teach those Greeko bastards who owns the East Med.

Servet Köseoğlu

thanks for israel for popeye missiles,upgrading m-60 sabra tanks,f-4 modernisation,blueprint of mrap kirpi from Israeli Hatehof Ltd NAVIGATOR.and anti-radiation drone ıaı Harop..ı have a huge respect for İsrael..

<>

Thank you Servet, I wish the Greekos here could show that respect too. On a second thought we don’t need them, make sure to sink their entire fleet if they provoke you.

Servet Köseoğlu

honestly ı dont pay attenttion to greece..ı know war is not gonna happen since we are both nato members..all ı know about greece is their capital city athens..they are the one who is following every local news about turkey..greece is no match..they can only dream israels military capacity

<>

Well said.

RD-180

Unlike the corrupt and idiotic greek-speaking Cypriots, us Greeks do not expect any help from Tel Aviv. God bless President Bassar al-Assad! Long live Syria!

You are being carried by NATO, lazy ass Greekos.

Servet Köseoğlu

he is not greek… hint:rd-180 is rocket engine designed and built in Russia.

RD-180

Yes, Greeks are lazy. And we will get even more lazy. You ain’t seen nothing yet. Deal with it!

<>

Israel should support Turkey against you, Greeks like you have shown me your true Nazi side. Atleast you guys go bankrupt, poetic justice.

Not Indian Paul

Turkey would stab you in the back as soon as they had a chance. Do you realise that?

RD-180

I do not know how much the Greeks think like members of the glotious NaZi party. But I have to admit that there is a lot of antisemitism in Greece and that makes me sick to my stomach. IMHO Greeks who have never heard of Antiochus Epiphanes (at least 95% of the populaton of Greece), glory to his name, have no right to a negative opinion about Israelis or Israelites.

<>

Thank you, the first Greek who doesn’t hate jews on this site.

RD-180

My not hating the Jews is what whould should make you afraid of me. The Mossad has a thick file with the name “Aristeidis Lykas” writen on the cover, already!

cechas vodobenikov

LOL
without the 3.8 billion USD annually you could not challenge Syria

They money did not bring us all the technological developments, it is our brains and determination that help us protect our land. Try again.

cechas vodobenikov

even you amerikan masters now ally w Greece/ Cyprus vs Turkey regarding disputes in mediterranean—trump now sending weapons to Greek Cypriots

Harry Smith

Russia had UAVs since 70s
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tupolev_Tu-143
The catch was that Russian generals were not understanding how to use it until Georgia war showed the gap. As we speaking about modern days, generals don’t developed the clear strategy yet. Russia is in other position than Turkey. Turkey can’t build fighter jets, so you had no other choice but develop UAVs. Our generals monitor how UAVs are used in Syria and they are low efficient against regular army in most cases except recognition. Bombs and guided missiles are much more effective for a war. If we are speaking about kinda “police operations” like Turks against Kurds or USA against Afghans – UAVs are very efficient. But try to recall the last Syrian offensive in Idlib. Turkish UAVs were effective until SAA troops in the front got manpads and battalion level 2A/AD equipment like Tor. So efficiency of UAVs in a real war is still disputable.
BTW Russia has Okhotnik. An UAV with AI nobody except Russia possesses. USA is still developing such kind of equipment.

Servet Köseoğlu

Thanks for replying and logical way of laying facts Harry..ı didnt mention anything about Turkey or turkish uavs or anything related with Turkish military stuff.This forum is not the exact place to discuss nicely,kindly.Russians is now investing 9 billion usd to this industry and we will see the result of these investment in mid-term.There is nothing wrong about that.They will close the gap on top of that with their extra Electronic warfare applications ability in micro scale ı believe that russian uavs perhaps will be better.

Mattias Dahlström

Turkey uses UAVs in Idlib only as long as Russia tolerates it. Without radio communication back to Turkey they are effectively shot down, and Russia are very good at finding radio transmitters and hammering them. Now, in this crazy world of today Turkey – while protecting jihadists in Idlib and threatening Greece – is still a NATO country, oddly enough.

Servet Köseoğlu

buttbuddy of son of whores hahahahaah…..

Harry Smith

At my point, Russian generals could not understand the purpose of UAVs. Maybe only on tactical level. Okhotnik with AI and fly alone capabilities is the strategic level Russian UAVs development way, I think.
BTW nothing wrong with Turkish UAVs. It is really amazing how Turkey could make combat effective air support with deficit of high level technology.

Servet Köseoğlu

there is nothing to worry about Russia will catch up eventually..Turkish uavs as you stated had to be developed by necessity..f-16 flight hours 8500$ and bombs mk-82-83-84 are much more expensive than tactial uavs bombs..

Ok…ok…muslim goat intercourse lover

If I might ask you a favor.
Majority of us here are pro Assad-Syria (plenty of them are Muslims) it would be very helpful if you would stick with TURKS as nationality and not as religion.
Thank you in advance for your understanding.

I even know you donkey father and I am positive that we are not related

Servet Köseoğlu

Servet Köseoğlu

HiaNd

There you go again reversing situation, so that you don’t know any longer that you are real son of the biggest whore that has ever existed while you keep giving your personal identity to the others!
No point talking to you son of the biggest whore because you are getting insane as well .
Nothin worse than insane son of whore like you and being confused and switching his identity to the others !
Good bye you silly son of the biggest whore ever.

it is easy to label people in both ways…prove me ı am wrong about uavs but ı know you can’t…

Scaathor

Orion and the ordnance it can carry. Russia is admittedly late to the UAV party but her domestic aerospace industry is easily up to the task. Unlike the pathetic Erdostani Caliphate who has to write cheques to better nations… comment image

Servet Köseoğlu

mmm…its our first meeting with you but you are obviously low-level..doesnt worth my time..

Scaathor

ROFL!! The turko-rat sticks his mis-shapen head out of the trenches and get a bullet to the scone from a superior being with superior weaponry (aka the TRUTH) … then the little quisling consoles itself by invoking some non-existent intellectual superiority and deems his conqueror an unworthy. hehe…

What a joke, You’re fooling no-one, lowly goat-fucking kebab faggot.

Servet Köseoğlu

ye sure..goat kebap donmeh etc etc..

Scaathor

Meh. Small and useless little man-ling.

You’ve been weighed and measured and found to be wanting.

Turkish have been defeated in Syria!..instead of a Syrian turkish puppet state..there are only a small Pseudocalifate in Idlib and a safe area near Turkish border in north east part…in Libya Turkish dont have the control of oil fields and port terminals….while Russia have taken control of almot all Syria and the natural resources of Libya!…Israel cannot avoid Iran deployment in Syria because the airstrikes only waste expensive cruise missile and damage agriculture warehouse!…

how did you manage to connect uavs to syria,libya,oil,iran,israel?cognitive dissonance!!!dont bother to answer ı already know..

Most excellent Comrades.
Let the CIA trolls and hasbarats cry and rage :)

Russia is making a reverse Barbarosa and at the same time blaming US for doing the same thing.
Building up secret 100 000’s of Russian troops with its Allies along the borders to the free and civilised world and when the right moment comes, a sudden surprise attack with Tsar bombs, Kinzhai missiles and electronic warfare systems with fake news!

Love it!!! Thanks for share!

you welcome

Tommy Jensen

Shouldnt you be better than them? Same de-humanised bloodthirsty shit isnt it?

HiaNd

The Kraut was there frozen already so they have used him for that purpose not having time to cut the tree or build improvised sign in the wilderness.
What were they suppose to do?
To leave one of their own soldiers to freeze to death by regulating traffic and impersonating directional sign ?!?
War is about being dehumanized and about dehumanizing those whom you are going to kill. For feeble hatred is disaster because they get killed immediately or kill themselves others just try to survive and make best out of it !
Nazi Germans have KILLED MILLIONS OF RUSSIAN CIVILIANS and this is the least what could they do useful with this German prick !!!

Now fuck off!

cechas vodobenikov

u sexually repressed cowards had zero to c WWI or WWII; while the German occupiers raped zero French females—you fake “liberators” raped 2000+
despicable backward cowards

Only applies to people with Christian values. Warmongers have forfeited any decency towards them. Now they can be used as a deterrent to any others….

Not Indian Paul

Agreed

Not Indian Paul

Enemy or not. That’s not good.

HiaNd

Spare me of your high moral ground bullshit!
USSR has lost 27 million people while Germany 7 times less and complaining through rotten hypocrites like you!

Soviets had all the rights to do whatever they felt necessary and useful to survive that aggression since Anglo-Saxon plan was destruction of USSR by German Nazi’s.
And they even now try to make full revisionism of history in total perfidy

If Germans decide one day to do it again I think that they should be annihilated to the last one and exist no more as nation.
The same goes for NATO aggressor.

‘High moral ground BS’, is that what you’ll say to your saviour when you meet Him face to face?

And where are the Serbians this time? Oh yeah they have their mouth around western cock. Time for vagina mouth to go.

Perhaps turkey wanted to help; today 5000 Russian troops stationed at Armenian Turk border as a deterrence of a 2nd genocide by turkey

AM Hants

Would love to see the expressions on NATO Forces, observing 80,000 serving military personnel, not connected to NATO, playing in the Black Sea.

cechas vodobenikov

this merely demonstrates that the US empire is near collapse. the plywood nation of amerika does not need to be destroyed militarily—they defeat themselves
their LGBT nation, bankrupt, over-extended, puritanical, stupefied will collapse this decade…and their various colonies—Israel, Denmark, etc will no longer be traumatized or funded by their amerikan mommy
