Russian troops will include mobile groups to combat enemy drones. Mobile teams to combat UAVs will be armed with ZU-23-2 automatic cannons mounted on truck chassis, as well as pickup trucks equipped with heavy machine guns. The new units will also include electronic warfare equipment and smoke production vehicles. The vehicles will cover objects with a smoke screen that is impenetrable to both optical-electronic systems and UAV thermal imagers. It is worth noting that such mobile groups have been operating within the Ukrainian army for quite a long time; they are used to cover various objects.

As part of this year's state defense order, guided ammunition for the Pantsir-S air defense system is being delivered to Russian troops ahead of schedule. Rostec reported this today; the supply is carried out by the Shipunov KBP. Earlier, a Russian ship armed with a naval version of the Pantsir-M air defense system confirmed its combat characteristics. Currently, more than 50 Pantsir air defense systems are used to cover objects on Russian territory from drone attacks; according to experts, this is still not enough. The Pantsir air defense system is designed for close-in defense of civilian and military targets, as well as for covering long-range air defense systems

Military personnel of the Russian army and the army of Tajikistan conducted a joint bilateral exercise to destroy mock terrorist gangs. According to the legend of the exercises, Russian crews of the Orlan-10 UAV and the Supercam UAV discovered enemy SUVs during aerial reconnaissance of the state border of Tajikistan. The exercises took place at the Kharb-Maidon mountain-desert training ground in the Khatlon region from April 15 to 18. The enemy was destroyed using Piranha FPV drones, Mi-8MTV5-1, Mi-24 helicopters, BM-21 Grad and Uragan MLRS, and 2S3 Akatsiya self-propelled guns were used. The infantry was transported on Russian BTR-82A and Tajik BTR-80. T-72B3 tanks from Russia and T-72 tanks from Tajikistan also took part in the exercises. ZSA "Linza" ambulance armored vehicles were used. At the end of the exercises, in order to prevent the enemy from retreating to the state border and the complete defeat of illegal armed groups, a tactical airborne assault force was landed on the enemy’s retreat route.

Assembly of T-80BVM tanks, inspection of the Omsktransmash tank plant. Footage of the visit by the Russian Minister of Defense to the T-80BVM tank production plant in the Omsk region. In the video you can see the assembly of T-80BVM tanks, gas turbine engines GTD-1250 or GTD-1500 at the Omsktransmash tank plant. The plant management reported that all T-80BVM tanks, while still on the assembly line, are equipped with the “Cape” camouflage system and a protective visor, also called a barbecue. It is worth noting that the tanks still do not have protection for the base of the turret and the engine compartment from FPV drones, these are the vulnerable spots of the tank, the main damage to tanks now occurs in these places. Despite the skepticism about the T-14 Armata tank, it is being produced and is being mastered by cadets; one of the new tanks will be shown at the end of the video, along with the T-90M Proryv tank, on which the Relikt dynamic protection was installed. The company’s management also reported to the minister about an increase in the production of heavy flamethrower systems TOS-1A “Solntsepek” by 2.5 times. This was achieved through the expansion of production capacity, the transition to a 24-hour work schedule and an increase in personnel by 1,200 people in 2023.
Summing up, the minister noted that the company promptly solves all assigned tasks. To date, the issue with the production and supply of new engines of higher power has been resolved.

“The Kalashnikov Concern presented a new Russian UAV SKAT 350M. The drone is the result of a modernization of the well-proven Supercam 350 UAV, which often works in conjunction with the Lancet kamikaze drone; there is a video about all drones on the channel.
The UAV is designed for aerial surveillance, searching for objects in the optical and infrared ranges. The SKAT 350M UAV received a new design of the wing and control elements; its mechanical strength and reliability were improved. Many functions have been automated, an automatic operating mode has been introduced, and a new battery controller has been installed. A new target load has appeared, and technical solutions have been implemented to improve the functioning of daylight and thermal imaging cameras. A module with updated algorithms is also installed, providing target acquisition and tracking.

Repair of a Ukrainian Leopard 2A6 tank by Russian mechanics. Russian mechanics inspected a Ukrainian Leopard 2A6 tank made in Germany in 1999. Previously, the tank was used by the 47th separate mechanized brigade of the Ukrainian Army; the tank ran over a mine and was abandoned in the Avdiivka direction, where it stood in a field for a long time due to problems with evacuation. The Leopard 2A6 tank was produced in Germany since 1997; when the tanks arrived in Ukraine, they were equipped with additional grilles to protect against cumulative ammunition. We are publishing an interview with mechanics talking about the Leopard 2A6 tank, they promise to restore the tank within 2 days, but judging by the damage, this will be difficult to do. Most likely the tank is being prepared for the May holidays.

Russian military personnel showed the Akhmat armored car with maximum all-round homemade protection against drones. The creation, of course, resembles the cars from the movie “Mad Max,” but such protection, despite its appearance, really works. Additional screens protect the vehicle from attacks from FPV drones and loitering munitions. Screens can also protect against projectiles thrown from quadcopters. In addition to lattice screens, the armored car was equipped with steel sheets to protect the chassis. Z-STS Akhmat armored vehicles are produced at the Remdizel plant in Naberezhnye Chelny. Russian armored vehicles "Akhmat" are made on a three-axle all-wheel drive chassis "KAMAZ-5350", they are inferior in tactical and technical parameters to armored vehicles "Typhoon", but at the same time they are much cheaper.

Footage of the work of the KP-125 field kitchen of the Russian Army. The KP-125 field kitchen was developed in the 60s and is still used by the Russian army, since the design of the kitchen turned out to be successful and it is used not only in the army. Chefs say that the KP-125 kitchen is more convenient to use than the earlier KP-42 and KP-2-48 kitchens and the newer KP-130 kitchens. The boilers could be quickly removed and washed, and the cabinets held heat better.
The kitchen is designed for preparing food or boiling water and transporting it in the field, which can even be done using a car, since the total weight of the kitchen is 1500 kg. The field kitchen is equipped with three boilers, technical information is on the screen. Capacity of the boilers in liters: for the 1st dish and boiling water 100/110 liters, for the 2nd dish 50/55 liters and the volume of the boiler for boiling water is 100 liters. The boiling time of water in boilers, taking into account the ignition of the nozzles, for liquid fuel is 60 minutes, for solid fuel 90 minutes.
To heat boilers, kerosene, diesel fuel, firewood and coal are used. Liquid fuel consumption is 7-10 liters per hour, solid fuel - about 30 kg/hour, fuel tank capacity is 48 liters. The kitchen is designed to prepare food for 125 people. Details in the video.

Footage of the installation of Tsar-barbecue protection on Russian T-80BVM tanks. These homemade designs are criticized, but tankers are not interested in the beauty of the tank, their goal, to complete a combat mission and remain alive. The T-72, T-80, T-90 tanks, including Western tanks, have a weak spot in the upper part of the engine compartment. Until simple factory protection of tanks from drones is invented, structures called king-barbecues will be increasingly installed on tanks.

The first Russian BMP-3 with the 4S24 dynamic protection kit entered service with the troops. The 4S24 dynamic protection kit was first shown in August 2023. The video shows tests of the Russian 4S24 “Karkas” dynamic protection from the Research Institute of Steel. As a result of the tests, it was possible to confirm the level of protection of the container based on 4C24, which was at least 500 millimeters. The 4S24 dynamic protection set is capable of withstanding hits from a monoblock anti-tank grenade launcher, as well as armor-piercing and armor-piercing incendiary ammunition from the KPVT, ZU-23-2 and 30-mm 2A42 cannon. The area of protection covering the side of the hull of the BMP-3 armored vehicle is 62%, the forehead of the hull is 36%, and the turret of the vehicle is 70%. The new protection managed to increase the guaranteed shelf life by one and a half times. The 4S20 protection unit needed to be replaced once every 10 years, the new 4S24 protection unit can be replaced after 15 years.

Launching of the first Russian vessel for training helicopter pilots. In the Nizhny Novgorod region, at the shipyard of the Ship Repair and Shipbuilding Corporation, the launching ceremony of the first and only Russian special marine vessel of Project 14400 "Nikolai Kamov" took place. This is a unique vessel for the Russian fleet; special devices are mounted on the ship that rock the ship to simulate various situations when training helicopter pilots to land on deck. The ship will be used to practice landing and takeoff of Ka-27, Ka-29, Ka-31 and Ka-52 helicopters, as well as test new types of ship-based helicopters. “Nikolai Kamov” will be based in Yeysk on the Sea of Azov. There have never been ships of this class in either the Soviet or Russian fleet. The displacement of the ship "Nikolai Kamov" is about 900 tons, the full speed is 12 knots, the cruising range is 500 miles with an autonomy of two days.
