Although long considered one of the largest and most powerful armed forces in the world, Russia’s military faced unexpected levels of resistance and difficulty during its initial invasion of Ukraine. But there is a danger in writing off Russia’s armed forces because of their struggle in Ukraine. In the next issue, our correspondent explores why Russia should remain a priority for Western forces.

Also in our next issue, we take a look at the issue of realism in military training. As forces rely more and more on simulation and real-life training that doesn’t reflect combat, we examine the need to create realistic and experimental training environments that will enable forces to truly experience conflict scenarios and the use of equipment in realistic settings.

Elsewhere, we find out how linking sensors can provide better air defence targeting solutions in multi-domain operations, explore the latest technological advances in ASW helicopters, and look at Germany’s decision to replace its Tornado fighter jets with F-35s.
