At the same time, the Ministry did not and forgets about the transition to Prof. army. Number of contract constantly grows, but the full transition to the army without conscripts still far away. Need to see one hundred percent transfer to a professional army base has not even planned, including due to the fact that the number of people willing to serve under the contract is less than that required for professional army. Not everyone is ready to go to contract service. The main reason for the reluctance — the financial side of the question. Promises to pay, of course, is a fully respectable level, but especially the work can repel "candidates" from the contract. There is fairly widespread perception that intrigue uncertain posodeystvuyut social motivation methods. This may be a benefit to higher education, free housing or even favorable terms of purchase.
Even these steps, the coordinator of the organization, "The Citizen and the army"S. Kryvenko may intrigue the young men from the provinces. Under these criteria guys from small towns or villages, left after military service, will be able to get an education, and even arrange a career in the military. In the future, all of this will be able to even restore the prestige of military service in the middle of the masses.
Give a thought for contract concessions on education and housing is good, but it will cost the country huge amounts of money. Even very large — it is planned that our army will be 425 thousand Prof. fighter. Well, with a set of people can also be the problem. Most of the contractors plan to recruit a former conscripts, but at the moment about half of the recruits are not going to serve life with a category "A". Not optimistic about the level of education of recruits — total full have only three quarters. And do not forget about those recruits who in decent health, or have a good faith delay, or frankly "mow". It is clear that the "kosilschik" unlikely to voluntarily go to the contractors. So far the number of possible experts are not up to par. But in a barrel of tar there is and a spoon of honey: the majority who want to go to serve under the contract will have the right motivation, even a cynical color.
And what about the very concept of a contract with the Army, is there any sense in it? Europe and the United States has decided that there is. But first all this is happening, "sauce" force reductions, and in America came out a nasty feature of Prof. army. When the loss in Afghanistan or Iraq have gained a certain value, potential recruits preferred to go anywhere, but not in the army. Because, according to a number of professionals, if America will participate in the harsh media war, you have to if you do not enter a plea of mandatory, at least to recruit volunteers.
But Israel, which constantly leads to the active and it is not very combat acts completes his army enlistment form. At the same time serve TsAHAL'e regardless of gender — it affects only on life (for the guys — 3 years for women — 2). And, curiously, Army Israeli Defense is one of the most advanced in the world. Even despite the frequent exclamations of inferiority fundamentally conscript army.
There is the view that the Army of the future will only prof. But as the South American experience, it is not quite the right approach to business. Also in favor of the army led by Prof. complexity of modern weapons. But this is debatable: in the Middle Ages was spent on the preparation of the archer, at least several months, if not years. Learn the modern soldier with a gun handle is even faster. For all this, the emergence of new types of weapons, their implementation and service only simplified. And this is typical even for today's class, for example, the operator of ATRA "Baby" was to have remarkable skill, that one button to adjust the flight of the missile. By contrast, modern anti-tank systems require an operator only to launch a rocket, it will do the rest myself.
So Makarov, one can imagine that in the near future conscript army is not going anywhere. Such forces may be of different size, different equipment, etc. But the principle of formation of its mobilization efficiency send to the archive yet.
