Russian troops received Tablet-A complexes for artillery fire control, based on Atlet armored vehicles. It is worth noting that we previously talked about the “Tablet-M-IR” version, it is newer, but the “Tablet-A” version was sent to the troops. The “Tablet-A” complex was developed by the Kovrov All-Russian Scientific Research Institute “Signal”, based on tablet computers, based on Russian Komdiv-64 processors. The Tablet-A complex is capable of controlling the fire of almost all weapons in service. "Tablet-A" increases the effectiveness of counter-battery warfare, significantly reducing response time; it collects data to calculate fire parameters. The complex can work with any reconnaissance equipment, radar, laser range finders, thermal imagers, automated weather kits, ballistic computers and UAVs, receiving data in real time via satellite channels. All data is processed and transmitted to the screen to the gun commander, the brand of the gun and the type of shells are taken into account. After receiving the coordinates of the targets, the commander of the artillery unit, in just a few clicks, ensures the calculation of firing settings and their transfer to specific guns.

A new combat laser for combating drones is being prepared for testing in Russia, the Sputnik agency reported. The laser was developed by the Scientific and Technical Center "LEMT" of Belarus and Russian research institutes. The combat laser will have a power of about 100 kW, it is being tested not only on drones, but also on other surfaces. Previously, specialists from the LEMT company successfully tested a 30 kW laser in the Middle East. There is no information about the guidance system and radars used. The system effectively detects drones that are hit at a distance of 400 meters to 6 kilometers. The cost of firing laser systems with a power of up to 60 kW is about 1-2 dollars, with a power of up to 480 kW - up to 10 dollars.

A prototype of the Impuls-M universal tracked platform, developed jointly with the Moscow company Gumich, was shown in Russia. The Russian robotic complex "Impulse-M" has a modular design and is planned to be used for cargo transportation and for installing various equipment, including different types of weapons; it can be used for laying mines and evacuating the wounded. Testing of the platform with an anti-tank missile system is already planned. The robot's tracked chassis is distinguished by high reliability and maintainability in field conditions; it can continue moving without several rollers. The Impulse-M robot implements various types of communication between the operator and the robot, which ensures operation in electronic warfare conditions. If the connection is lost, the robot can continue the route to its destination and return back to the base along the same path. The length of the Impulse-M robot is about 2 meters, it is capable of transporting a load weighing 1 ton on a horizontal surface. On a 30-degree climb, the robot can transport up to 500 kg, and on a trailer it can pull up to 1.5 tons.

Rare archival footage used by units of the Russian Pacific Fleet, the Soviet ZSU-23-4 “Shilka” in Ukraine. It is worth noting that the ZSU-23-4 “Shilka” is also used by the Ukrainian army, but there is practically no video of it either.
ZSU-23-4 "Shilka" was produced from 1964 to 1982, despite such a long production period, there are supposedly no more than 100 of them left in Russia, and no more than 40 in Ukraine. The Shilka air defense system is used extremely rarely, since training on it takes a long time, and the radius of destruction of targets is only 2 kilometers.
Detailed technical characteristics of the Shilka air defense system on the screen. The ZSU-23-4 "Shilka" is armed with a quadruple 23-mm AZP-23 "Amur" cannon with a rate of fire of 1,000 rounds per minute per barrel. The ZSU-23-4 “Shilka” combat vehicle weighs 19 tons and is equipped with a 280 hp engine. and reaches speeds of up to - 50 km/h. Power reserve 300 km. The thickness of the armor in the frontal part of the hull is up to 15 mm. The crew of the combat vehicle is four people. Details of the combat work of the ZSU-23-4 “Shilka” in Ukraine in the video.

The Northern Fleet frigate Admiral Gorshkov, as part of a long voyage, after visiting Cuba, searched for submarines in the Atlantic Ocean. The ship's Ka-27PL anti-submarine helicopter was used to search for submarines. The video shows a Ka-27PL helicopter diving into water with a VGS-3 sonar station. The VGS-3 hydroacoustic station takes approximately 30 seconds to perform a 360-degree view in noise direction finding mode. At a distance of more than 50 kilometers from the ship, the pilots carried out a set of measures to visually, radar, magnetometrically and hydroacoustically search for submarines. The Russian frigate Admiral Gorshkov of Project 22350 is a multi-purpose ship with guided missile weapons. The ship was accepted into the Russian Navy in 2018, and in 2021 it was modified to use Zircon hypersonic missiles.

The flagship of the Russian Pacific Fleet, the missile cruiser “Varyag” of Project 1155M, conducted exercises in the Mediterranean Sea as part of a long voyage. During the exercises we practiced the destruction of sea drones. air attack means, repelling an attack by an enemy surface ship and searching for and destroying a submarine. The sailors used a smoke screen to camouflage the ship. During the exercise, shooting was carried out at a target from AK-130 and AK-630 artillery mounts. To repel a simulated attack by naval drones, Kord and Utes machine guns were used. An RBU-6000 rocket launcher was used to destroy the submarine. Also on the cruiser “Varyag” they improved their skills in using the “Fort” anti-aircraft missile system; no shooting was carried out.
