List of equipment of Russian Ground Forces[edit]

Hello,

I have seen your latest edit on the page mentioned in the subject ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_equipment_of_the_Russian_Ground_Forces ).

I would like to point out that the source you are using ( http://www.sputniknews.com/military/20150909/1026794045.html ) states that the Russian Ground Forces have around 400 T-90s built in the 2000s which are getting upgraded.

However,the older source that was on the page states 350 active tanks and 200 in reserve.

Could it be,that out of those 550 tanks Russia has (only an estimate),400 are getting upgraded?

I think it is safe to say that Russia has more than 400 tanks (since those 400 are getting upgraded), meaning we should at least put something like this : 400+ .

Or should we revert to the older source?

Would like to hear your opinion on this!

All the best!

T-90 numbers.[edit]

I think that could work.However,I think that Russia has much more than those 550 stated by IISS,but I have no source to confirm it.I think they purchased much more between 2005-2011 than from 2000-2005.

Until we find a better source,I think that your idea should solve this.

All the best. RussianBear158 (talk) 10:52, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

I have a question, maybe you can help me. Did you used the Military Balance 2015 for looking the numbers? If so, have you got the eBaook of Military Balance 2015? You can answer in your comment page. Enthusiast — Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.181.88.72 (talk) 15:21, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I only have a bought version, owned by a family member. It is unfortunately extremely expensive to buy and I don't know of any free online version. DanieB52 (talk) 20:22, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

It's ok. I am only interested in the russian forces and have an older 2012 Version. Can you please scan these some pages from MB 2015 about russian forces (you can leave the NAVY PART with the ships, submarines out )and load it on a filehoster? I would be very grateful.
