Russian naval combat module Narwhal for protection against naval drones and unmanned aerial vehicles. The Russian NPO Elektromashina presented a new shipborne remote-controlled combat module Narwhal, designed to destroy surface, coastal targets, air and sea drones. The module is designed for installation on light boats with a displacement of up to 20 tons. The module is equipped with a 12.7 mm Kord machine gun and can hit targets, presumably at ranges up to 6,000 meters. To compensate for rolling in rough seas and shooting on the move, the Narwhal is equipped with a three-plane gyro-stabilized system, as well as an automatic target tracking machine. The Narwhal complex consists of a day camera, a thermal imager and a laser rangefinder. Additionally, it is planned to install a weather station, a complex of all-round visibility, a radar with a detection range of up to 600 meters and means of defense against high-precision weapons.

Video of the operation of a rare Russian MLRS "Snezhinka", developed by Donetsk engineers of the "State Innovation Company". The MLRS was first presented in 2018 at an arms exhibition. MLRS "Snezhinka" is equipped with two 324 mm missiles with a launch range of 1500 to 9600 meters. The MLRS is placed on the chassis of the KrAZ-260 vehicle and is serviced by a crew of 3 people. MLRS is very simple, but according to experts it is quite effective. There is no data on missiles and in what quantities the Snezhinka MLRS is produced.

Russian BMP-3 will receive dynamic protection 4S24. By the end of 2023, Russian BMP-3 armored vehicles will begin to regularly receive dynamic protection based on new 4S24 elements. Dynamic protection based on new 4S24 blocks ensure that neighboring blocks do not detonate when a grenade or ATGM hits it. The Russian BMP-3 with the installed new dynamic protection is significantly superior in terms of security to the American Bradley BMP in the standard version. The internal elements of the old protection 4S20 and 4S24 are interchangeable, since they have the same dimensions and weight. Therefore, the characteristics of the existing 4S20 protection complex can be easily improved by replacing the elements with new 4S24. The mass of 4S24 elements for protecting the BMP-3 is 4.2 tons, they are able to protect against monoblock cumulative ammunition, monoblock RPGs, B-32 armor-piercing bullets, 23 mm armor-piercing incendiary tracers and armor-piercing projectiles of 30 mm caliber. The area of overlapping the side of the hull of the BMP-3 armored vehicle with protection is 62%, the forehead of the hull - 36%, the turret of the vehicle - 70%. The new protection managed to raise the warranty period of storage by one and a half times. The 4S20 block needed to be replaced after 10 years, the new 4S24 can be changed after 15 years.

A Russian soldier showed a German machine gun MG 3, which was used by one of the Ukrainian units. The MG 3 machine gun was captured during the fighting in the Krasnolimansky direction. At the end of the fifties, the German MG 42 machine gun was modernized and put into service under the MG 3 index, the machine gun was converted to a 7.62 × 51 mm cartridge. To do this, the barrel and some other elements of the weapon had to be replaced, and numerous small improvements were also made. The MG 3 machine gun is now quite widely used by many countries.

How the Russian armored personnel carrier BTR-82A was modernized, review. The modernized Russian BTR-82A was presented at the Army Exhibition 2023. Judging by the volume of upgrades, for this it would be worth assigning a new index to the machine. And so, the BTR-82A has changed better, now it has an engine located in front, and the landing is carried out from behind. Regarding the topic of landing behind an armored vehicle, there are still disputes on this topic, since when it hits the ass, the landing cannot leave the car, some believe that the landing on the sides of the car is safer. Also, the 20-ton armored personnel carrier differs from its predecessor in a modified layout. The front of the vehicle is reinforced with more resistant armor, the armored personnel carrier holds a charge of B-32 bullets of 12.7 mm caliber, and in some cases even on the territory of 23 mm. The anti-mine protection of the days has also been improved, it now has a V-shape. Additional blocks with a ceramic fastener can be hung on the body of the armored personnel carrier. The armament of the vehicle is a 30-mm 2A72 cannon, a thermal imaging channel has been added to the module at the terminals. On the armored personnel carrier, you can put another combat module. The armored personnel carrier was equipped with air conditioning and anti-mine seats for 8 troops. The armored personnel carrier is equipped with a diesel engine with a capacity of 330 horsepower and can accelerate on the highway up to 85 km / h. The price of the new armored personnel carrier and when it will be released is unknown.

Russian protection of tanks from drones EW complex "Volnorez". Russian troops received a new set of electronic warfare "Volnorez" to protect tanks from drones. This complex was seen at the Army 2023 exhibition, it was installed on the T-80BVM tank. No information on the electronic warfare complex "Volnorez" could not be found at the moment. It is known that the complex was created by craftsmen and 40 sets of it have already entered the troops. Ukrainian media reported that this was supposedly a complex for equipping tanks with communications, but this is not so. The developers have already talked about the Breakwater electronic warfare, it has already passed preliminary tests, unfortunately they did not provide technical information. This complex should protect tanks from being hit by FPV drones.
