Russia is developing a new line of projectiles based on the Krasnopol high-precision guided projectile. This was announced by the representative of the KBP company Alexander Shigin. We previously talked about the Krasnopol-M shells; the link to the video is in the comments to the video. According to the designer, further development of the Krasnopol projectile will allow the Russian army to use the projectile at completely different distances, and with great power. Details about the new shells will be disclosed only after they are put into service. In addition, in 2024, the production of the Krasnopol projectile will increase 25 times; how such a colossal increase in ammunition production volumes will be achieved is not reported. Now Russian troops are receiving the Krasnopol-M shells and the new Krasnopol-M2 shell, which began to be delivered to the troops in the summer, but information about it is classified. It is known that the Krasnopol-M2 shells have an updated guidance and target designation system; it can be used with different means of target illumination. It is possible now that two Krasnopol-M2 projectiles can attack two different targets located at a minimum distance. In this case, each projectile will hit the designated object.

Russian troops began to receive modernized kamikaze drones “Cube”. ZALA AERO specialists, at the request of the Ministry of Defense, increased the weight of the UAV warhead and also carried out other work on it. In fact, now this is a completely different drone, significantly different from the one that was before. It is unknown how much the drone has changed, but it was previously reported. The drone is made of radio-absorbing materials and reaches speeds of up to 130 kilometers per hour, has a payload of 3 kilograms and a flight duration of 30 minutes. The advantages of the “Cube” drone are hidden launch, high precision bombing and ease of use. The kamikaze drone has a self-destruction function and an order cancellation system, when used, the UAV returns “to base.” Earlier, the Kalashnikov concern reported on the fulfillment of the state defense order for the supply of “Cube” loitering ammunition to the troops. At the same time it was announced that the production of drones had been doubled. The kamikaze drone "Cube" together with the drone "Lancet" were developed by ZALA AERO. There is a video of drones in combat on the channel.

Aviation plant named after. Yu.A. Gagarin manufactured and handed over to the Russian Ministry of Defense the final batch of fifth-generation Su-57 aircraft, according to the 2023 production program. To speed up production, the Su-57 assembly line was set up in 2023 in the face of growing serial production of aircraft. Measures were also taken to eliminate bottlenecks not only in the final aircraft assembly shop, but throughout the entire production cycle. Issues regarding the supply of high-tech components from supplier factories are also being successfully resolved, and opportunities for improving the assembly technology of Su-57 aircraft are being worked out.

In Russia, on the basis of the “Agriculture” remote mining machine, they created a bicaliber MLRS “Vozrozhdenie”. The new MLRS system is a modernization of the “Agriculture” remote mining machine, on which a universal transport and launch container was installed for launching rockets. The system is somewhat similar to the principle of changing missiles in the American HIMARS MLRS. The Vozrozhdenie MLRS will use 220 mm Uragan MLRS missiles, as well as ammunition from the TOS-1A Solntsepek or TOS-2 Tosochka heavy flamethrower system. Changing packages with missiles will be done as in other MLRS, using a transport-loading machine. Russia has already created the 9K512 Uragan-1M bi-caliber MLRS; the complex can fire 220 mm and 300 mm missiles. The estimated range of destruction of the Vozrozhdenie MLRS with 220-mm high-explosive fragmentation rockets with a warhead mass of 100 kg will be up to 120 km, with thermobaric 220-mm shells with a mass of 150 kg, more than 15 km and 122-mm cluster mines up to 15 km. Probably, the new MLRS, depending on the weight, will be placed on the basis of the Belarusian MZKT-7930 tractors, or on the Ural-6370, as in the TOS-2 “Tosochka”, or on a four-axle KamAZ chassis, as in the “Agriculture” mining complex. Serial production of the new MLRS "Vozrozhdenie" will begin in 2024.

In Russia, work is underway to increase the firepower of the Russian T-14 Armata tank, said Sergei Chemezov, General Director of the Rostec Corporation. Details and videos, as often happens, are not reported. According to him, in the future "Armata" will become an even more formidable tank, its potential and combat power will be significantly increased, the result will be soon. It is not clear how the combat power will be increased; perhaps they will install a new 152 mm gun, work on which was previously carried out. The tank currently uses a 125 mm 2A82 tank gun. Sergei Chemezov also said that the tank is “saturated with the latest electronic systems and has a next-generation fire control system,” and the tank has been ready for a long time. The general director also expressed the opinion that now the Armata tank is head and shoulders above the Israeli Merkava tank, which was positioned as a super-protected tank, but in fact it has protection, in fact, at the level of a heavy combat vehicle, as can be seen now in Palestine.

Video of the Russian Kh-101 cruise missile turning on the onboard defense system. Footage of a modernized Russian cruise missile Kh-101 striking Ukraine. On the final leg of the flight, the Kh-101 missile uses the L-504 onboard defense system. The L-504 module is produced by the Ekran Research Institute in the city of Samara, the company specializes in the creation of aviation defense systems. In flight, not just a heat trap is fired, but presumably also small “needles” of different lengths, this makes it possible to deceive enemy air defense guidance radars. Decoys are fired by the missile 6 times, simultaneously with two heat traps on each side of the missile.

The only indoor museum in the world opened in Kronstadt, which housed an entire nuclear submarine. The main exhibit of the Museum of Naval Glory in Kronstadt was the first Soviet nuclear submarine K-3 Leninsky Komsomol. Now it is one of the most unique military museum sites in the world. This is not an installation, but a full-size first Soviet nuclear submarine of Project 627 Kit. The creation of the K-3 submarine was a national task in the USSR—35 institutes, more than 20 design bureaus, and about 100 industrial enterprises worked on its solution. The progress of construction of the first nuclear submarine was strictly classified. It was forbidden to even take the drawings into the workshop where the nuclear-powered ship was being built. Before a work shift, workers entered a specially designated room, read the drawings and memorized them. Secrecy was also maintained for the crew; when training sailors at the first Soviet nuclear power plant, they were forbidden to even call each other by name. To restore the submarine, a complex project was developed and implemented to relocate the K-3 nuclear submarine from the Kola Peninsula, from the Nerpa shipyard in the city of Snezhnogorsk, Murmansk region, to St. Petersburg. The K-3 submarine "Leninsky Komsomol" was launched in 1957 and withdrawn from the Northern Fleet in 1991. The service history of the K-3 submarine was difficult and sometimes tragic.

The newest Russian glide bomb, Drel, has passed all tests. Serial production of the cluster bomb will start in 2024 at one of the Russian military factories. If you are interested in Russian bombs and missiles, as well as their use, links to the video are in the comments to the video. The PBK-500U SPBE-K glide bomb was developed by NPO Basalt and is designed to destroy armored vehicles, ground-based radar stations, control posts and enemy air defenses. It is expected that this aerial bomb will be almost impossible to recognize on radars; how the designers implemented this is not reported. The PBK-500U “Drill” air bomb glides towards the target and opens over it at the right moment. The bomb is guided using GLONASS. The bomb consists of 15 self-aiming combat elements. If the destructive element does not work on a given target, it self-destructs after a certain time. Each self-aiming combat element is a compact autonomous system capable of independently studying the ground situation, searching for targets and hitting them. The combat element contains a cumulative warhead capable of penetrating at least 70 mm of homogeneous armor, according to some sources, more than 100 mm. The ammunition can be used regardless of weather conditions and does not require the aircraft to enter the air defense zone. The mass of the bomb is 540 kg, length - 3100 mm, bomb release height up to 14 km, range of use up to 50 km. The maximum deviation from the target is less than five meters. The price of the bomb is unknown. Work on the Drill bomb continues; it will be produced in several modifications.
