Russian arms have two key advantages over American ones: they are easier to assemble (and therefore cheaper) and more accessible and understandable to operate, said director of the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies Ruslan Pukhov.

Russian technologies are user friendly. This is important, Pukhov said, as in most countries of the world people without higher education serve in the army, and many of them cannot perform operational control over the US weapons that require specialized knowledge. “We joke about some Western models that they’re excellent, but to manage them you need to graduate from Harvard,” – says Pukhov.
