Russia Defense Min Boasts About Weapons05/24 06:19

   MOSCOW (AP) -- Russia's defense minister says the military has received a 
steady flow of new weapons allowing it to maintain a "strategic parity" with 
NATO.

   Sergei Shoigu said in Wednesday's speech before lawmakers that Russia's 
nuclear forces have been equipped with the new Yars intercontinental ballistic 
missiles with an enhanced capability to penetrate any potential missile defense.

   The navy has commissioned three new Borei-class nuclear submarines armed 
with the Bulava intercontinental ballistic missiles, and Shoigu said their 
number will reach seven by 2021. He said that after 2021 the military will also 
start receiving a modernized version of the Tu-160 long-range bomber.

   Shoigu noted that the planned deliveries of the new T-50 fighter jet and the 
S-500 air defense missile system will significantly strengthen Russia's air 
defenses.
