Footage of the installation of the R-448 satellite communication station by Russian military personnel. The transportable satellite communication station R-448 was created by the Khimki company ITIS and was first shown in 2019. The transportable two-channel satellite communication station R-448 is designed to organize two high-speed communication channels in the Ku or C bands, using VSAT technology, through the Express and Yamal communication spacecraft. And also through the Blagovest geostationary spacecraft, broadband satellite communications, C-band frequencies, and the Russian Ministry of Defense.

The head of the Russian Ministry of Defense checked how state defense orders are fulfilled at military enterprises. During a visit to the Tactical Missiles Corporation, a super-powerful Russian FAB-1500-M54 aerial bomb equipped with a planning module was noticed for the first time. As can be seen in the photo, the bomb received a streamlined cap that improves aerodynamic characteristics, which in turn increases the range and speed of the bomb’s flight to the target. An aircraft bomb with FAB-1500-M54 has a gliding range of up to 60 km; it is believed that it can be equipped with a pulse-jet engine, which increases the gliding range of the bomb to 150 km. The FAB-155-M54 aircraft bomb has a mass of 1550 kg, the mass of the warhead is 675.6 kg. When used, an aerial bomb leaves behind a crater up to 15 meters in diameter, and its radius of destruction by fragments and shock wave is about 500 meters. The maximum altitude for dropping an aerial bomb is 12 km; the initial gliding speed of the bomb depends on the carrier and usually reaches 1900 km/h. The UMPC module makes it one of Russia's longest-range bombs. Bombs can be carried by Su-34M and Su-35C aircraft. During a visit to the plant, the minister also instructed to transfer the line of conventional ammunition, the production of which has been established in sufficient quantities, to the category of precision-guided ammunition.

Footage of the construction of defensive structures by the Russian army in the Krasnolimansky direction. When creating dugouts, trenches, communication passages and weapons magazines, the engineering troops use the military mobile sawmill complex VMLK-1, more about it in the link to the video in the comments to the video. Since the war in Ukraine in some places turned into positional battles, quite serious defensive structures are being created. In the video you can see a system of trenches, the walls and floor of which are covered with boards, for protection from drones, and the upper part of the trenches is also closed. Along the entire length of the defensive structures, an electrical lighting system was created, drainage systems were installed, dugouts and firing points were created.

The Russian lightly armored tractor MT-LB has undergone another home-made modernization. This time, the RBU-6000 jet naval bomb launcher was installed on the MT-LB chassis. The RBU-6000 or “Smerch-2” shipborne rocket launcher is installed on most Russian ships; the installation was developed in 1961. The installation can launch twelve 213 mm RGB-60 or 90R bombs, weighing 113 kilograms, at a range of up to 5500 meters. The weight of the RBU-6000 is 3500 kg, so the maneuverability of the MT-LB armored personnel carrier will be significantly reduced.

Russian troops began using the Saniya electronic warfare system to protect tanks from drones, one of which was spotted on a T-80BVM tank. The Saniya electronic warfare system is designed to counter FPV drones and was developed by the Russian company 3mx. The complex is equipped with eight antennas and is available in stationary and mobile versions. The complex does not work all the time, but turns on automatically only when radiation from FPV drones is detected; for this, it is equipped with a Bulat drone detector, which we previously talked about. The Saniya electronic warfare system suppresses drone operating frequencies of 450 MHz, 900 MHz, 1.2 GHz, 1.5 GHz, 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz. According to the manufacturer, drones are detected at a range of up to 1.5 km and suppressed within 1 km. The jamming distance of drone frequencies depends on the weather, terrain conditions and the characteristics of the kamikaze drone. The antennas of the complex are capable of deflecting and returning to their original position, this is convenient when moving equipment in the forest. The weight of the Sania electronic warfare complex is 26 kilograms.

The Triada-TKO company showed how the new Russian uniform VKPO 3.0 is produced, we previously talked about it, the link to the video is in the comments to the video. Since May 2023, 100,000 sets of military uniforms have been delivered to the troops, and soldiers have good reviews of them. The uniform set is being modernized; from 2024, the second version of the VKPO 3.0 uniform will be supplied to the troops. This will include new non-flammable underwear of the first layer, shoulder straps and the upper part of the suits will be made of fabric with “IR remission”. A set of waterproof and windproof field uniforms with thermoregulation has already been created. Currently, Russian troops are supplied with three types of military field uniforms. Military uniforms VKPO 2.0, produced by the company BTK-group, VKPO 3.0 produced by the company TRIADA-TKO and VKPO 4.0 produced by the company 545-design, are used by special forces units.

Since there is no topic about the Ethiopian army, I am posting it here. The Ethiopian Air Force has received Russian export Su-30K fighters. The ceremony of introducing the first two Su-30K aircraft into the Ethiopian Air Force took place last Tuesday, January 16. Russia previously supplied 18 Su-30K fighter jets to India in the second half of the 1990s. In 2008, India returned 18 Su-30K fighters to Russia under the “trade in” system, receiving new Su-30MKIs in return. In 2011, all aircraft were transported from India to Belarus to the 558th aircraft repair plant in Baranovichi. In 2013, 12 former Indian Su-30K fighters were purchased by Angola after modifications and repairs were carried out in Belarus. The Su-30K was developed in 1993 on the basis of the Su-27UB and is a transitional model to the Indian version of the Su-30MKI aircraft.

The first Russian UAV Kor-112 made of plastic polymer. The Novosibirsk company OKB tested the Kor-112 heavy UAV. The Night Bird UAV is created according to the “flying wing” design, which allows the drone with a base weight of 21.5 kilograms to take off from any site or from water, without a catapult, with a take-off run of only 50 meters. The drone was successfully tested in cold weather of 37 degrees. The Kor-112 UAV is controlled by changing the thrust differential of the power plants. The efficiency of this method of taxiing is higher than that of the classic method with a deflectable plane, which allows you to control the drone not only in the air but also on the ground. To maintain flight, the thrust of one engine is sufficient, this allows you to return the drone if one of the drives fails. The drone is made of thermoplastic polymer, which has not been used before; any breakages or holes can be easily repaired on the drone using a soldering iron. The UAV is equipped with a cargo compartment with a hatch in the lower part of the fuselage, which allows it to accommodate any load weighing 13.5 kg, including ammunition. The drone is equipped with Chinese engines, but Russian ones can also be used in large-scale production. The company can produce up to 1,000 drones per month, currently producing 60. In an emergency, the drone returns to the starting point on its own. The estimated flight range of the drone is 30 kilometers, in repeater mode 60 kilometers and above, the drones change frequencies and transmit data to each other. The drone's flight time with an electric motor is 2.5 hours, with additional batteries up to 6 hours, with a gasoline engine 2 hours. The drone's flight altitude is 6 kilometers, speed is 215 km/h. The cargo compartment of the drone is 620 mm long, 160 mm high and 360 mm wide. The wingspan of the drone is 2700 mm, the length of the drone is 1200 mm.

The Kozelsky Mechanical Plant launched the production of Russian dugouts and shelters “Mole”. The dugout is made of sandwich panels; it can be quickly delivered to the desired location and can be assembled by two people in a few hours. When changing the location of soldiers, the dugout can be quickly disassembled and transported to another location. The dugouts are designed to accommodate 4 soldiers and can be equipped with sleeping places, a table, stools and a stove. The “Mole” dugouts are made according to the “thermos” principle - it is cool in summer and warm in winter, the dugout is reliably protected from moisture, insects and rodents.

The head of the Russian Ministry of Defense again inspected the plan for implementing state defense orders at Russian military enterprises. During a visit to the State Design Bureau "Raduga" enterprise, a new Russian cruise missile "Izdeliye-720" was noticed; there is still no technical data on it. Presumably the Izdeliye-720 missile was created on the basis of the Kh-69 missile; it has the same square body, but a different configuration of the air intake and seeker of the missile. The Izdeliye-720 missile lacks the electro-optical guidance terminal found on the Kh-69 missile and instead has a fairing similar to that of the Kh-35 missile. It is possible that the Izdeliye-720 missile is equipped with a radar used by the missile's guidance system. The missile's flight range is estimated to be from 300 to 500 kilometers, and its weight is about 450 kg. During a visit to the plant, the minister was shown the Russian X-58 anti-radar missile, which has a flight range of 250 kilometers, after which the minister said that the missile’s flight range should be increased to 300 kilometers.

Footage of the operation of the new Russian aircraft landing radar system, the RSP-28ME complex, one might say this is a unique and only video of the complex’s operation. The RSP-28ME complex is designed to organize air traffic control of aircraft in the near zone of operational airfields, and control over the aircraft's pre-landing maneuvering and maintaining course lines and glide path on the landing trajectory. The RSP-28ME complex has been supplied to the troops since 2021 and is serviced by three operators. The RSP-28ME Complex includes: a DRL-27SE dispatch radar module, a PRL-27SE or PRL-27SM landing radar module, an automatic direction finder, an RSP-28ME control module and a diesel power plant. The RSP-28ME complex is equipped with operational airfields of the Russian state aviation; it replaced the RSP-10MN complexes

Footage of tests of the home-made Russian robotic platform “BRATISHKA”, created by Kazan designers. Initially, the Bratishka unmanned tracked vehicle was developed for the emergency evacuation of wounded soldiers during battle, but now its functions are being expanded. As can be seen in the video, the robotic platform has a low height and does an excellent job of evacuating soldiers. A smoke screen installation system has already been developed for the BRATISHKA robot; modules for installing anti-tank systems, electronic warfare systems, reconnaissance and other systems are being created. The possibility of launching a UAV from a robot is planned; a turret with automatic guidance for a machine gun is currently being designed. The robot body is solid-bearing and can be made of armored steel. The robot is controlled using a VR helmet, at a range of up to 2 kilometers, with a communication repeater the control range is more than 10 km. Most of the robot's components are made in China; work is underway to replace it with Russian analogues. The robot weighs 200 kg when equipped, is equipped with two engines and reaches a speed of up to 15 km/h, with a power reserve of up to 16 hours. Drive power from 7 to 10 kW
