the only time russia was conquered.... was when it was invaded in the winter by the mongols. other people who invaded started in the summer, but the campaigns dragged on into winter. then the russians beat back the already tired and now cold enemy.

They only won because of how early the peace treaty was signed. Japan wasn't really prepared to fight for that long, that far away from home, in a literal frozen wasteland; if the war dragged on, they would have lost.

Top 3 countries I wouldn't **** with:

1) Russia.
2) Israel
3) China

1) Russia has a huge population that is extremely dedicated to their homeland
2) Israel uses massive retaliation when dealing with threats
3) China, like Russia, has a huge population that is dedicated to their homeland. They could literally overrun us with sticks and stones.

#47 to #46 - thenextprodigy (02/10/2013) [-]
well i think we have a valid argument to make that we have not only one of the best naval forces, but also the best air forces. china, with such a huge army requires a large amount of supplies (food, water, resources, etc.) since we control the air and sea we could stop them from shipping all of those resources which would make things a bit hard on them. just my two sence though.

Nah, im just making sure.

Actually, in a simulation, a full scale conflict with China with the US using our famous F-22 raptors versus their older, Russian bought, SU-30 fighters, they came out victorious. Even though the Raptors had more combat kills and lost very few aircraft, the Chinese planes simply monopolized on one of the F-22's numerous, yet little spoken of weaknesses: range. They simply shot down the refueling aircraft that the F-22s were dependent on. It should also be noted that this was done before the J-20 was around, which is believed by many to be specifically designed to counter the F-22.
#87 to #80 - verby (02/10/2013) [-]
We do have other planes, you know. Like the F-35 and that one plane that has missiles with like a 16 mile range
User avatar #163 to #87 - omfgitsstsix (02/10/2013) [-]
The F-35 is still in development. We don't use them yet. Regarding your "16 mile range missile," we have the AIM-120, which has a range of something like 75km(I'm just too lazy to Google it right now and that's the number that's in my head). Russia produces and sells a missile called the R-77, which has a range that's barely shorter of the AIM-120(again, too lazy to Google it). Our bread-and-butter aircraft are mostly F-16s and F-18s though. Those, however, both have equivalent Russian(they sell to other countries as well) and Chinese counterparts. The Israelis also bought plenty from the US, meaning we're at no advantage over Israel.
#198 to #163 - verby (02/11/2013) [-]
We also have other anti aircraft measures other than aircraft. I think it'd be interesting to see to be totally honest. Although there probably wouldnt be a clear victory on either side
User avatar #139 to #46 - mynameisfoo (02/10/2013) [-]
Russia's population is actually dying haha the Russian government has started to pay mothers for every child they have after their first one. & Israel does not have a huge military, it could be taken over with simple manpower. China is a country you definitely wouldn't want to fight, but the USA is one of the best trained with another huge military. No matter how much you may hate them, China and USA could **** any country up that they wanted.

"USA Has one of the most powerful and easily the most well trained militaries in the world"
"most well trained militaries in the world"

*laughing out loud

The Delta force (USA's best military force) were set up and trained by the British SAS. And the SAS have got better since, whilst Delta force mainly still utilizes old methods, and I doubt you have even considered studying other spec ops teams, special forces or security forces such as the Mossad, Huntsmen Corp, or the Danish Frogman Corp.

This is your "Well trained" American soldier, in action.
User avatar #130 to #123 - milthyfoustache (02/10/2013) [-]
Generally speaking people tend to say Britain have the best trained military and I agree not just the SAS and SBS either... Just look at the regular forces as well as Paras and Royal Marines.

Russia lacks behind us in Military power. They barely have a Navy power equal to ours. They have ground troops but as we saw during the Soviet Times a lot of them didn't want to fight and were FORCED too. This is a new age and time so any Russians who don't want to fight will just leave since it's the younger generation that goes to war.
Israel has amazing retaliation capabilities but they cannot hold themselves up on their own when it comes to war. The only reason why they have yet to be taken over is because of America and other countries backing them up. The enemies of Israel don't want to go to war is America or any other country backing Israel up.
China has a massive population but most of them are illiterate and incompetent. (No offence.) A lot of Chinese don't really care for the government since they like to **** them over A LOT. The only way I see the majority of Chinese citizens going to war is if it was a war in CHINA and it threatens their old traditions or anything along the lines of that. If it was just a war the government decided themselves without much care for the citizens then they wouldn't. Plus they may have numbers but they don't have capability. A lot of their techniques aren't effective and are mostly flashy since they don't realize in battle your best friend is your gun. They're equipment isn't as great either. We all know how Chinese quality is. Sure the Chinese quality we all know is made by businesses and not the government but imagine China trying to arm more then 4 million people with military grade quality weapons. They can barely produce enough metal and steel for their normal life cycle. China also doesn't have great Air Force capabilities or bomb technology.

Russia is the most patriotic country in the world. If you tell them its for Russia, they would kill newborn infants with their bare hands and then eat them. You also need to keep in mind that Moscow was created as a waypoint on the route between Scandinavia and Mongolia. What I'm trying to get across there is that Russians are the offspring of Vikings and Mongolians, the two most badass races of humans.
And China... China would have no issues arming a populace, the AK rifle is cheap and effective. Sure we could WIN a war with either country, but it wouldn't be fun
#106 to #86 - anon (02/10/2013) [-]
Plus Russia is ****** by a **** ton of drugs practically everywhere.
User avatar #100 to #86 - Lulzilla (02/10/2013) [-]
Russia is patriotic but the younger citizens aren't stupid. They DON'T want to fight for something they don't believe in. If the government is being a dick and going to war with people for dumb reasons then the citizens wont fight. Sure you could draft people but then your just going to get a civil war on your hands. It doesn't matter about your ancient history when it comes to modern wars. Britain was one of the most blood thirsty countries in the WORLD yet look at them now. France used to kick ass back then but now they're just...there.
China doesn't use the AK. They use copies of it but not the real deal. The copy is prone to jams and misfires since I've shot it before and I've shot an AK before. There IS a difference. Arming your army with cheap quality weapons is terrible because they they jam and breakdown to quickly then your army is useless.
#197 to #100 - verby (02/11/2013) [-]
Having fired the m16 and the AK, I can safely say taht the M16 is a far superior rifle, but in any case our biggest advantage would be our naval might, as it has been throughout history

Okay I've said this before and I'll say it again. I may be biased as a U.S. citizen but the United States is the number one country that could kick any other country's ass if it wanted to. The military here is full of trained soldiers - extremely patriotic soldiers at that. Me and my dad had a conversation just this morning about how soldiers in the past 60 years in the United States have gone from "Here's a gun, kill as many gooks as you can" to being extremely well trained - each and every one of them, including infantrymen. One of the main reasons the U.S. has never been invaded? Almost 1 out of every 2 households owns at least one gun. China has a huge population, sure, but their training isn't good. Israel, meh. Russia would probably be a contender with the U.S., but present-day Russia isn't what it was during the Cold War.

Oh what's that you got Tiger and Tiger 2 tanks? come back when you get tanks that that don't break down in winter.
#200 to #131 - anon (02/11/2013) [-]
The T-34 was a terrible tank from an ergonomic point of view, terrible command and control. The T34-85 was a significant improvement, but came late. And the tanks didn't "break down" in the winter, they just froze up. Also Tiger and Royal Tiger were latewar tanks - so post irrelevant. And the snow was just one component - the major problem were the masses of soviet reserves available, not the metereological conditions, since though these significantly slowed the atack on Moskau, the soviet troops would have made the conquest of the city impossible in any case.
