MOSCOW, November 12 (RIA Novosti) - Russia's Armed Forces are to receive 30 new ground and sea-launched ballistic missiles, three nuclear submarines, and an assortment of other weapons, the Russian president said on Thursday.

Dmitry Medvedev said the list would also include "five Iskander [tactical] missile complexes, about 300 modern armored vehicles, 30 helicopters, 28 warplanes, one corvette-class warship, and 11 spacecraft."

In his state-of-the-nation address to parliament, Medvedev stressed provision of advanced weapon systems to the military was a priority.

"There is no room for debate here: These weapons simply must be procured," he said.

He instructed the government to put in place an effective contract system to strike the right balance between arms manufactured for export and for domestic needs.
