The Russian armed forces significantly outnumber the United States in terms of the number and power of weapons. This conclusion was made by US military expert Scott Ritter.
He believes that the American army is not ready for such events, which are currently taking place in Ukraine, since it was preparing only for the colonial battles in Afghanistan and Iraq.
“During the entire Operation Desert Storm, the US fired 60,000 artillery shells. The Russians fire 50,000 shells a day in Ukraine,” the expert stated.
Specialists of the strategic research center RAND Corporation share the opinion of Ritter, and note the weakness of the US Army compared to the RF Armed Forces. They emphasize that “Coalition-SV” fires up to 70 shots at a speed of 16 shots per minute. This leads to the conclusion that the Russian Armed Forces are significantly ahead of the United States in terms of the number and power of weapons.
