Testing the Triton electronic warfare system of the PPSh company, protecting tanks from drones. The Russian company PPSh has developed the Triton electronic warfare system to protect tanks from FPV drones. Published a promotional video for testing the Triton complex. The complex can be installed on tanks and other equipment, it can also protect infantry positions and even be installed on trees. According to the test scenario, an FPV drone is chasing an ATV; judging by the video, the Triton complex was able to suppress the drone’s control channels. As it has now become known, the Triton electronic warfare system operates in 9 ranges, from 400 to 5600 MHz, most likely the complex can change operating frequencies.

SAU 2S31 Vienna entered service with the military. The Russian 120-mm self-propelled artillery and mortar unit has appeared in the army. It is not yet clear whether the Vena self-propelled guns began to be mass-produced or not; instead, the Russian army began modernizing the Nona self-propelled guns. An experimental batch of the Vena self-propelled guns was created in 1995; in 2013, Azerbaijan received 18 vehicles. The 2S31 self-propelled gun is built on the BMP-3 chassis and has a high degree of automation. The self-propelled gun is equipped with a 2A80 gun and is capable of hitting targets at a range of up to 13 kilometers, with a rate of fire of up to 10 rounds per minute. The crew of the self-propelled gun is four people. Details in the video.

A complex of guided munitions was created in Russia. The Kizlyar Electromechanical Plant concern has developed an automated gun control system that programs ammunition to explode at the optimal point to hit the enemy. The complex will allow you to hit targets behind obstacles and destroy drones - the system calculates the detonation point so that the explosion creates the largest possible cloud of fragments that hits the target. The prototype is currently being tested on the modernized ZU-23M2 anti-aircraft installation; with the help of this complex it is possible to modernize a wide range of cannon weapons, including calibers of 30, 40 and 57 millimeters. The equipment includes an optical-electronic unit, an automatic target tracking system, a digital computer system and drives for the gun. Moreover, a gun equipped with this system can be controlled remotely using a radio signal or cable.

Exercises on Russian BMP-2M of Russia, installation of Kornet ATGM. Footage of Russian military personnel training on a BMP-2M equipped with the Berezhok combat module. The video shows the process of installing the Kornet ATGM on a combat vehicle. In a modified version, Russian BMP-2Ms are equipped with the B05Ya01 Berezhok combat module. Thanks to this, the firepower of the vehicle is significantly increased. The BMP-2M carries four Kornet ATGMs, a 30-mm 2A42 cannon and a 30-mm AG-30M automatic grenade launcher. If you are interested in Russian armored vehicles, an example of how Russian BMP-3s are assembled at a factory is in the link to the video in the comments to the video.

Russia opens a naval base in Abkhazia. A new permanent base for the Russian Navy will appear on the Black Sea coast in Abkhazia. An agreement between Russia and Abkhazia has already been signed. A Russian naval base will be opened in Ochamchira Bay. It is still unknown what ships will be based there; Russia has now transferred part of its fleet from Sevastopol to Novorossiysk. At the moment, in the city of Ochamchira there is a base for patrol ships of the coast guard of the Border Service of the FSB of Russia; it has been operating since 2017. Plans to create a base for the Russian fleet in Ochamchira were announced 14 years ago, in the summer of 2009. The Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Vladimir Vysotsky, then estimated the duration of construction of the base at two to three years.

Russian Army optical locator Sosna-N for searching for snipers. Russian special forces units tested the Sosna-N anti-sniper complex. The Sosna-N automated complex was first presented in 2021. The Sosna-N optical locator is a remotely controlled laser-optical installation that can automatically detect any optical devices conducting observation or targeting. The complex operates at a distance of up to 2.5 kilometers and can detect and completely illuminate the sniper’s optics with oncoming radiation. The video shows a sniper scope detected at a range of 2300 meters. The complex itself weighs only 4.6 kg, and comes with a special tablet weighing 1.1 kg. The operation of the complex does not depend on the time of day. The complex is capable of operating around the clock in a fully automatic mode using special software. The power supply of the complex is 12 Volts, the complex can also be installed on cars.

Russian troops received self-propelled guns Phlox. Rostec has begun transferring a batch of 120-mm Phlox self-propelled artillery guns to Russian troops. It is worth noting that the serial production of self-propelled guns was organized quite quickly, only 5 months passed. Thanks to good mobility, automation and a relatively low price, the Phlox self-propelled gun is now in demand among the troops. To reduce the cost of equipment, the developers abandoned the tracked chassis and installed the Phlox self-propelled guns on the Ural-4320 vehicle. Also, to reduce the cost, a gun was installed based on the 2A80 from the 2S31 Vena self-propelled gun. By today's standards, the self-propelled gun does not fire far, up to 13 kilometers, but for that it has a very high rate of fire. The Phlox self-propelled gun can fire in the “simultaneous fire attack” mode, when several shells fired one after another simultaneously reach the target.

Production and launch of Russian Sarmat nuclear missiles. The Russian Minister of Defense checked the progress of the state defense order at the Krasmash JSC defense industry enterprise in the Krasnoyarsk Territory. The company produces Sarmat fifth-generation strategic missiles, footage of missile launches at the end of the video. The company is currently producing the first production missiles, which will be put on combat duty in the very near future. The General Director of Krasmash JSC reported on the expansion of the enterprise’s production capacity, equipping it with modern technological equipment and the imminent commissioning of a new production building. The Sarmat strategic missile will replace the Voevoda strategic missiles; NATO called these missiles “Satan.” The Sarmat missile carries 10 Avangard guided warheads, the power of each warhead is 750 kilotons. The advantage of this rocket is a quick launch, it enters orbit faster and has much greater energy, allowing it to carry out a nuclear strike from any direction, including through the South Pole.

Russian sniper rifle SHF Chukavin will be mass-produced. The new Chukavina sniper rifle will be put into mass production; the Kalashnikov concern has already completed testing of the SHF rifle. Created to replace the legendary Dragunov SVD rifle, the Chukavina rifle was first introduced in 2017. The Chukavina rifle is designed to defeat enemy personnel at short and medium distances. The small dimensions of the rifle allow the sniper to use it in close combat. The Chukavina semi-automatic sniper rifle uses 7.62x54 mm caliber cartridges. The effective firing range of the new rifle is exactly the same as the SVD, which uses the same cartridge. Many people wonder why it was necessary to make a new rifle then. The fact is that the ergonomics and accuracy of fire on the Chukavin rifle have been improved by 25–30%; it is also equipped with a bipod. You can shoot confidently from a rifle up to a kilometer; at long ranges, the 7.62x54 mm cartridge does not allow you to confidently hit targets. The Chukavin rifle can be equipped with all modern types of equipment, both Russian and foreign made: silencers, thermal, night and infrared sights, as well as laser target designators. The rifle without a magazine weighs 4.8 kilograms.

Assembly of Russian military transport aircraft Il-76. The execution of the state defense order at the Russian aircraft plant "Aviastar" in Ulyanovsk was checked by the Russian Minister of Defense. The plant produces the main Russian military transport aircraft Il-76MD-90A and repairs heavy transport aircraft An-124-100. As the minister said, now the load on aviation has increased significantly, it is 2 times more than it was during the most tense moments during the Soviet era.
The minister also noted that it is necessary to increase the production of Il-76 aircraft, and to quickly modernize older versions. During a visit to the aircraft plant, the minister clarified the type of engines that are planned to be installed on promising models of heavy transport aircraft, as well as during the modernization of An-124-100 aircraft. He was informed that now there are two configuration options - either the modernized D-18T engine or the PD-35 engine. Episodes of assembly of Russian Il-76 aircraft in video.
