Russia has created a prototype of an interceptor drone. The Tarantula Birdcatcher drone was developed by Altai intelligence officers and is equipped with trap nets to intercept UAVs. In the video you can see how this drone works. The trap is not fired forward, but downwards, which makes it possible to confidently intercept only hovering drones; it will be more difficult to intercept moving UAVs. The new drone is being tested, there is no technical information, and funding is needed for serial production.

Russia continues to modernize its missiles. The P-800 Oniks supersonic cruise missile, part of the Bastion coastal missile systems, has been modernized by Russia. The new version of the Onyx missile has received more technologically advanced homing heads that are capable of attacking enemy targets more effectively, striking with a minimal deflection angle. Work is also underway to ensure the invulnerability of Onyx missiles to electronic warfare. Reportedly, the new characteristics of the missiles have already been confirmed during their tests. P-800 Onyx missiles were originally intended to destroy enemy ships, but thanks to innovations they have become an effective means of attacking ground targets. The Onyx anti-ship missile was developed back in the 80s of the last century, but entered service only in 2002. One complex with four Bastion launchers is capable of defending a coastline over 600 km long. The missile's flight range is up to 600 kilometers; the modernized version of the Oniks-M missile is capable of hitting targets at a range of up to 800 kilometers. Onyx missiles are in service with surface ships and submarines of the Russian Navy, are used in Bastion coastal missile systems, and are also silo-based.

Footage of work in Ukraine, a Russian drone with a target designation system. The operator, in real time, selects targets on video from the drone and transmits data with coordinates to artillery units. Judging by the video, the software package loads Google maps and is used to link to the area. The video shows artillery, presumably a mortar, being aimed at a Ukrainian BMP-2.
After being hit by one of the mines, the BMP-2 leaves the battlefield. The drone model and what kind of software it is are not reported.

The Russian remote-controlled combat module "Dym-2" was proposed to be installed on armored vehicles to protect them from drones. Alexander Rogatkin reported this. The Dym-2 robotic combat module was first reported in 2020; it was developed by the ALFA-PRIBOR company and is intended to protect the launch positions of Yars ballistic missiles. The robot guard can work according to operator commands or act fully automatically. It is proposed to additionally equip the Dym-2 combat modules with radars and install them on armored personnel carriers; how this could be implemented is not reported. The module is large enough, it is more convenient to use it for guarding objects or protecting ships. The controlled combat module "Dym-2" is equipped with a camera, thermal imaging sight, loudspeaker and monitor. Armament, 8 salvo blocks, each block contains 10 machine gun barrels of 5.45 caliber, the rubber plug is knocked down by the first blank cartridge when fired. The installation also has 12 guides for grenade launchers. Typically, the combat module "Dym-2" is used to protect objects of the highest category.

The crew of the Russian T-72B tank showed homemade protection against drones. Currently, there is no full-fledged factory protection of Russian tanks from drones; the rear part of the tanks is especially vulnerable, so tank crews are forced to install the protection themselves. The tank's turret does not rotate, since it is designed to operate from indirect firing positions, like an artillery mount.

The Tetrahedron electronic warfare system, designed to combat all types of modern kamikaze FPV drones, was tested by Russian military personnel. Testing on the Gadfly FPV drone will be shown. The Tetrahedron electronic warfare complex, unlike many new electronic warfare systems, uses frequencies of 400-500 MHz, at which some drones are now controlled, to suppress drones. In general, the complex operates at frequencies from 400 to 5900 MHz; this is the maximum configuration of the complex, equipped with several electronic warfare domes.
According to the developers, the complex suppresses drone control channels with wide-range interference, and also uses a frequency shift of the interference. The Tetrahedron electronic warfare system, depending on the configuration, has a power from 100 Watts to 450 Watts and suppresses drones at a range of 40 to 500 meters. The weight of the complex is from 10 to 40 kg. Power supply from 12v to 24v. The price of electronic warfare equipment "Tetrahedron" is from 230,000 to 515,000 rubles, or from 2,500 to 5,500 $.

Russian mechanics inspected the homemade Ukrainian BMPT "Azovets", which is an analogue of the Russian BMPT "Terminator". The Azovets BMPT was developed in 2015 on the basis of a bulldozer, which was previously made from a demilitarized T-64 tank. On the BMPT, they planned to install two combat modules with 23-mm twin GSh-23 cannons, or 30-mm GSh-30 cannons, and the developers also planned to install an ATGM and two 7.62 mm machine guns. The project to create the Azovets BMPT was closed due to financial scandals, and the combat vehicle itself was buried; the production cost of the Azovets BMPT was $5 million. Details in the video.

A prototype of a turret for protecting armored vehicles from FPV drones was shown by the Russian company Lobaev Arms. According to the manufacturer, a prototype of this system is currently being tested. The decision to create an anti-drone gun stems from the need to find an asymmetric and at the same time cost-effective answer to the threat of FPV drones to armored vehicles. The anti-drone gun will be a compact robotic turret - at this stage, the selection of weapon caliber is underway. Now the choice is between a cartridge for 12-gauge smoothbore shotguns, probably with buckshot, and also a standard intermediate cartridge for the Russian army, 7.62x39 mm caliber. Among the advantages of the complex are its compactness and speed of deployment, which takes only three minutes.

The Soviet 68-ton super tank IS-7 will be restored in Russia. After restoration, the tank will return to the 1st pavilion “Heavy tanks and self-propelled guns of the USSR” of the Patriot Park Tank Museum. The IS-7, also called Object 260, is considered one of the most powerful domestic tanks; a total of 6 of them were built. Development of the tank began in the summer of 1945. The tank was armed with a 130 mm S-70 rifled gun. There were also two KPVT machine guns and six 7.62 mm RP-46 machine guns. The IS-7 was equipped with an electrically driven automatic loader. This brought its rate of fire to a fantastic 6-7 rounds per minute for the 1940s. The tank had 150 mm frontal armor, which was not penetrated not only by the 128 mm gun of the German Maus tank, but also by its own 130 mm S-70 gun. The IS-7 is equipped with an automatic fire extinguishing system designed to turn on three times in the event of a tank fire. It was installed in the engine and transmission compartment of the car. In February 1949, the USSR decided to stop all work on tanks weighing more than 50 tons, and this is where the history of the IS-7 ended. Engine power - tank 1050 hp. Maximum speed on the highway is up to 60 km/h. Fuel range is 300 km. Crew - five people.

Servicemen from the repair units of the Russian army spoke about their work. The work of these people is little publicized, but they play an important role in the units of the Russian army. On average, it takes specialists about two days to repair one combat vehicle. The video shows the repair of a Russian diesel engine UTD-20, developed in 1965.
