A new understanding of warfare appears under development in Russia. This article will focus first on some brief examples of Russian classical methods, especially different ways they can be updated such as operational art in space or integrated. That discussion is followed with a consideration of several elements that compose Russian asymmetrical thinking. The article concludes with an examination of a potential scenario involving the integration of classical and asymmetric methods that might be explored in Russian gaming exercises.
