Subject: Russian mobilisation capability?
Beezle    4/7/2006 2:37:13 AM
Now, from what I've read, Russia has a standing army of some 250,000 soldiers, and another 20 MILLION reserves. (obligation to age 50) That sounds like a massively inflated figure, like they're just counting every male from 18-50, not just those with military training. My question is, how many soldiers can Russia realistically mobilize in a crisis? And I'm talking all-out mobilization effort.
