The Russian army begins to actively use the Tornado-S MLRS. The 9K515 Tornado-S multiple launch rocket system is a modernized version of the Smerch MLRS and began to be delivered to the troops in 2016. MLRS "Tornado" is considered one of the best in the world and surpasses foreign counterparts in many respects. The firing accuracy of the Tornado-S MLRS is 15-20 times higher than that of the Smerch MLRS. Unlike the Smerch MLRS, the Tornado-S MLRS rockets are corrected by Glonass not only at the initial stage of the flight, but also at the final one. The 9A54 combat vehicle is made on the basis of a modified chassis of the MAZ-543M truck. A full salvo of the Tornado-S MLRS is the second in terms of strike power after nuclear weapons, the system ensures the delivery of several tons of explosive to the target. Twelve 300 mm rockets hit objects at ranges up to 120 km and can be individually aimed at each target. Two new types of missiles are used, 9M549 with a cassette for fragmentation elements and 9M544 with cumulative fragmentation elements, it is also possible to use missiles from older versions of the Smerch MLRS. To correct for Glonass, only the tail part of the rocket rotates in flight. It was reported that shells with a range of up to 200 km were being developed for Tornado-S, but exact data on them could not be found. After the upgrade, the MLRS has the ability to control fire using an electronic map and link to satellite navigation data. It is now unnecessary for a crew of 3 to get out of the vehicle to target the guide missile unit. The transfer time of the MLRS 9K515 from traveling to combat position is 3 minutes, the duration of a full salvo is 40 seconds.

The Russian army began to actively use the 1L260 Zoopark-1M counter-battery radar, which was put into service in the 2000s. The self-propelled radar station 1L261 is located on the GM-5955 vehicle and has a crew of three. The exact characteristics of target detection are not yet known. Approximate target detection range: a mortar with a caliber of up to 120mm - 18-22 km, a cannon with a caliber of 105mm to 155 mm - 15-20 km, a rocket launcher from 122 mm to 240 mm - 25-35 km, tactical missiles - 40-45 km. According to previously published data, the 1L261 station is capable of determining the firing position of artillery with an error of up to 40 m. When calculating the launch point for multiple rocket launchers, the error is 55 m, the launch point for ballistic missiles is 90 m. The number of simultaneously tracked targets is 12. The time of continuous operation of the radar 8 o'clock.

Mass production of the remote mining machine "Agriculture" has begun in Russia. We have previously shown its combat use. The machine of the engineering remote mining system "Agriculture" was developed by the Tula NPO "Splav" - the developer of all our MLRS. A four-axle KAMAZ-6560 vehicle is used as the chassis of the combat vehicle. The operation of this installation is similar to the operation of the Grad MLRS. The difference is that instead of the warhead, solid-propellant rockets with a caliber of 122 mm are installed. The estimated range of "Agriculture" is from 5 to 15 km. The missiles of the vehicle are placed in transport and launch containers, each consists of two parts of 25 missiles each. The reload time of the missiles is 3 minutes. All calculations in preparation for firing are carried out automatically. the system operator determines the main parameters of the future barrier, including the number of shells and mines in a salvo.The combat vehicle is equipped with a satellite navigation system and a computer, as well as a weather station.After the installation of mines, this area is plotted on an electronic map, demining does not need to be done manually, mines can deactivate remotely.The area of mining the installation from one salvo is about 10 football fields.The complex includes two vehicles: the combat vehicle itself and the transport-loader.

Military cooperation between Russia and China has reached a new level. The air group consisting of Tu-95ms strategic missile carriers of the Russian Air Force and Xian H-6K strategic bombers of the Chinese Air Force conducted air patrols over the waters of the Japan and East China Seas. Russian Su-30cm and Su-35s aircraft provided escort for the air group. For the first time in the course of joint air patrols, Russian Tu-95ms aircraft landed at an airfield in the People's Republic of China. Also, Chinese Xian H-6K bombers landed at an airfield in Russia. The landings of the Russian Tu-95s were actively filmed by the inhabitants of China, shots at the end of the video.

Video of the loading and launch of the new Russian anti-missile A-235 of the strategic missile defense system. The rocket was launched at the Sary-Shagan test site. Pay attention to the speed, the rocket leaves instantly from the starting point. A-235 Nudol missiles are designed to intercept warheads of intercontinental ballistic missiles, the missile is also capable of hitting satellites. Over time, the A-235 missile defense system will replace the A-135 Amur complex on combat duty, whose missiles are guided by the Don-2N radar and are the basis of Moscow's strategic missile defense system. The transport and launch container of the missiles is made of fiberglass. Perhaps such a quick launch of the rocket is due to the use of directed explosion technology.

The Russian Defense Ministry showed footage of classes with mobilized military personnel. The video shows the Russian BTR-D armored personnel carrier and the Fagot anti-tank system. The BTR-D was created on the basis of the BMD-1 armored vehicle and was supposed to replace it, since the BMD-1 could only carry 5 troops. The machine was put into service in 1974 and is in service with Russia and Ukraine. Unlike many other Soviet vehicles, the BTR-D was not exported. The BTR-D can be armed with two 7.62 mm PKT machine guns, an AGS-17 grenade launcher or a 12.7 mm Kord machine gun, other weapons were also used. The crew of an armored vehicle of 3 people and 10 paratroopers is protected by aluminum armor. The machine was used in Afghanistan and has proven itself well. The range of the armored vehicle is 500 km, the speed along the highway is 60 km/h. On the basis of the BTR-D, a whole family of combat vehicles and combat support vehicles for the Airborne Forces was created.

The Kurgan Machine-Building Plant increased the production of military equipment for the Russian army. The production of amphibious armored personnel carriers BTR-MDM "Rakushka" and armored vehicles BMP-3 has been increased. The BTR-MDM amphibious armored personnel carrier was created on the basis of the BMD-4M airborne combat vehicle and was first shown in 2015. One of the main advantages of the BTR-MDM is its versatility. The body of the vehicle is made of welded armor plates. The car weighing 13.2 tons received an engine with a capacity of 500 horsepower. The BTR-MDM can carry two 7.62mm PKTM machine guns. The crew of the armored vehicle is 2 people and up to 13 landing people. Now the Kurgan Machine-Building Plant, and other plants in Russia, have switched to a 12-hour working day, some shops have begun to work almost around the clock. Russia is gradually embarking on a military mobilization mode of operation.

Independent developers of Russia began to actively develop UAVs. Everyone already knows about the kamikaze lancet drone. Tests of a new kamikaze drone, from independent developers in Russia. There is almost no information on the drone, it is known that the flight range of the drone is about 5 kilometers. The warhead contains a kilogram of explosive. The main task of the drone is to fight other drones and enemy infantry. Approximate cost 1600 dollars. The creators are ready to launch mass production of such UAVs.

Footage of the work of Russian servicemen with the Grad-P missile launcher. The 9P132 rocket launcher was launched in 1966, Grad-P was created in just 10 days at the request of the Vietnamese partisans. The installation is actually a single-barreled analogue of the Grad MLRS and is intended for guerrilla warfare. The launch tube of the installation is mounted on a tripod, it can be assembled and disassembled in 2.5 minutes and easily hidden in the forest or even buried in the ground. The launch of a 122 mm 9M 22M rocket, which is also collapsible, is carried out using a sealed remote control with a cable 20 meters long. If necessary, the 9P132 installation can launch standard Grad MLRS shells. The Grad-P system has long been discontinued, but is still in service with a number of countries. Calculation of the installation - 5 people. The range of missiles is 10800 meters.
