In the Amur Region, the crews of Russian Tu-95MS strategic missile-carrying bombers practiced in-flight refueling of aircraft. More than 5 Tu-95MS aircraft were involved in the flights; refueling was carried out from Il-78 aircraft. The Tu-95 aircraft was initially created with an in-flight refueling system, which in theory made it possible to increase the flight range to 18 thousand km with one refueling and up to 32 thousand km with several. The Tu-95 fuel system includes 11 tanks, which are located in the wings and fuselage. The weight of fuel to be filled can reach 88.5–100 tons, this is up to 50% of the take-off weight of the aircraft; aviation kerosene grades T-1, TS-1 or T-2 are used. Now the Tu-95MS-16 version aircraft are being upgraded to the Tu-95MSM version with the engines replaced by the NK-12MVM modification with AB-60T propellers. This version is distinguished by a complete replacement of radio-electronic equipment, while the airframe of the aircraft remains the same. The crews of Tu-95MS aircraft practiced piloting techniques and air navigation during the day and at night. In-flight refueling was carried out at an altitude of over 5,500 meters and at speeds over 550 kilometers per hour.

In Nizhny Tagil, near the Uralvagonzavod buildings, a new Russian heavy infantry fighting vehicle was spotted. The BMP was created on the basis of the T-72 tank and has a large landing compartment; it is remotely similar to the BMO-T heavy combat vehicle. While the new heavy infantry fighting vehicle does not have a combat module, it is possible that the Berezhok combat module from the BMP-2M will be installed, information about it is on the channel.

Footage of the new Russian air defense system S-350 "Vityaz", army index 50Р6А, adopted for service in 2020. The S-350 Vityaz medium-range air defense system was developed by the Almaz-Antey concern and should replace the S-300PS air defense system and the Buk-M1-2 air defense system. The Vityaz air defense system consists of a 50P6E launcher, a 50P6TE launcher, a 50N6E multifunctional radar with passive electronic scanning and a 50K6E combat control point, located on the BAZ chassis. The 92N6E detection radar from the S-400 air defense system and the 96L6E autonomous all-altitude detector can be used. The main function of the Vityaz air defense system is to cover the S-300V4, S-400, S-500 air defense systems and other targets from missile attacks and medium-sized UAVs; the radar probably does not see small-sized drones. The S-350 air defense system is capable of hitting ATACMS tactical missiles, Storm Shadow and SCALP-EG cruise missiles, HIMARS MLRS missiles, aircraft and UAVs.
One launcher of the S-350 air defense system contains 12 missiles and is capable of firing a salvo equivalent to a division of the S-300 air defense system. The Vityaz air defense system can operate in automatic mode, in active and passive radar modes. The complex uses 9M96E/9M96E2 missiles from the S-400 air defense system and 9M100E missiles.
There is also a South Korean analogue, the KM-SAM air defense system, developed jointly with Russia, as well as the Resurs 3K-96-3E ship-based air defense system. Detailed characteristics of the complex on the screen. The air defense system is capable of simultaneously firing at 16 aerodynamic and 12 ballistic targets. The range of destruction of aerodynamic targets is up to 60 km, at altitudes from 10 meters to 30 km, ballistic targets are hit at a distance of up to 30 km and an altitude of up to 25 km. The deployment time of the air defense system into combat position is 5 minutes. The crew of the S-350 air defense system is 3 people.
The price of a division of the S-350 Vityaz air defense system is presumably about $135 million.

The Russian army has begun using the latest Irbis counter-battery radars. The station was developed in complete secrecy. Now there is no information or video on the Irbis station, the station is camouflaged and the radar is not shown. Reportedly, the Irbis station is better than previous models and can operate at a range of up to 150 km, while detecting even FPV drones; when they are detected, they turn on electronic warfare and use shotguns. The Irbis station records cannon and rocket artillery fire and transmits data to artillery units. The station can also record air targets, including UAVs. The station is housed on a Kamaz-6350 chassis and is equipped with an armored capsule that protects the crew from fragments.

The Russian parachute platform "Atom" for landing robotic equipment and cargo was tested at the Ryazan Airborne Forces School. The transport system consists of a landing platform, a parachute with a controlled wing-type canopy, as well as equipment for automatic flight and guidance. The system is oriented using GLONASS or GPS coordinates. After the platform is dropped from the aircraft, folding panels in the form of wings open on it, and under the platform, shock-absorbing containers are filled with air, this softens the landing of the platform. Equipment installed on the platform is automatically disconnected upon landing and can immediately enter into battle. After the platform lands and the equipment is unloaded, it can be used as material for fortifications, swimming facilities, structures for establishing water crossings and for the construction of field life support facilities. The Atom platform is designed for landing from low altitudes - up to 200 meters.

The first footage of the use of the new Russian radio intelligence complex "Thorn-MDM", an interview with the operator at the end of the video. "Thorn-MDM" entered service with the Russian army in 2019, there is very little information about it. The Torn-MDM radio reconnaissance complex is designed to search, analyze and record signals in the range from 1.5 to 3000 MHz, as well as direction finding and goniometric location determination of their sources located at a distance of up to 70 kilometers. Once installed, the antennas of the complex operate automatically around the clock. A special feature of the Thorn complex is the ability to intercept not only radio communications, but also cellular communications and instant messengers used on phones. The Torn-MDM complex can be produced in both mobile and stationary versions. The Thorn-MDM complex consists of a hardware machine on a Kamaz chassis and a rigging machine.

Long-range M-46 guns were noticed in the Russian army. Soviet 130-mm M-46 cannons, one of the eyewitnesses noted, on one of the railway trains in Russia, earlier M-46 cannons were noticed on the road near Novocherkassk. It is unknown whether the Russian army began to use these guns, but it was previously reported that the guns are used in Ukraine. Presumably, shells for them can be supplied to Russia from Iran and North Korea. M-46 guns entered service with the USSR in 1951; for its time it was one of the best artillery pieces. Despite their age, these guns under different indices and in a modernized video are now in service and storage in 40 countries; Ukraine uses them. The M-46 guns have a 55-caliber barrel and are capable of hitting targets at a range of up to 27 kilometers with a conventional projectile and active-missile projectiles at a range of up to 37 kilometers. When using Chinese and Iranian active missiles, the firing range reaches 44 kilometers. The gun's rate of fire is up to 8 rounds per minute, with separate cartridge loading. The gun crew consists of 9 people, the transfer time from traveling to firing position is 8 minutes. The weight of the gun in the stowed position is 8450 kg. According to some estimates, there are about 600-700 M-46 guns in the warehouses of the Russian army.

Training of drivers of nuclear missile systems Yars of Russia, 161st school of technicians of the Russian Air Force. Personnel for the training of driver mechanics of the Russian Yars mobile ground missile systems. Before receiving permission to operate multi-axle military equipment, drivers are trained in driving using simulators at the 161st School of Technicians of the Strategic Missile Forces of Russia. The video shows the latest simulator for training driver mechanics of autonomous launchers of the Yars mobile missile system. The school trains driver mechanics for heavy military vehicles on the MAZ-543, MAZ-7917, MAZ-MZKT-79221 chassis, as well as support vehicles for mobile missile systems. Military simulators are designed in such a way that they allow you to simulate all possible situations with high accuracy. The leader of training sessions can not only control the actions of students in real time, but also correct them. After training on simulators, drivers are trained on real cars, but instead of rockets, water containers are installed on the truck chassis, outwardly indistinguishable from the original.
The 161st school of technicians of the RSVP was founded in 1983 and is located on the territory of the Kapustin Yar training ground in the Astrakhan region.

In Russia, the Gonets satellite system and the Geoscan company for the first time implemented technology for controlling UAVs via satellite. For testing, the Geoscan 201 UAV from the Geoscan company was used; the experiment was carried out on Sakhalin. It is worth noting that the implementation of this system will allow the creation of autonomous maritime drones. The Geoscan-201 drone was equipped with a Russian on-board modem, Gonets, and all control of the drone was carried out through Russian satellites. For control, special mini antennas have been developed that are built into the UAV. During the tests, the possibility of establishing communication, transmitting telemetry data from the Geoscan 201 UAV to the Gonets-M spacecraft and sending commands from the ground control station to the UAV via satellite was assessed. A total of six flights were carried out. Experiments showed the effectiveness of the created communication system. The location data and telemetry data of the UAV were successfully transmitted to the data center, and a command was sent via satellite to force a return to the launch site. The electric UAV "Geoscan-201" has a take-off weight of 8.5 kg and is capable of speeds of up to 80 km/h at altitudes of up to 4000 meters. The UAV is capable of carrying a payload of 1.5 kg, a range of up to 210 km and can stay in the air for up to 3 hours.
