Video training crews of Russian reconnaissance vehicles BRM-1KM. The armored vehicle is equipped with a remotely controlled weapon module with a 30 mm 2A72 automatic cannon, a similar module is used on the BTR-82.


A small episode of training Russian recruits of PMC "Wagner" to fight tanks and overcome fear of them. When a tank passes over a soldier, a few centimeters remain between it and the bottom of the vehicle. This is primarily a psychological exercise that allows you to get rid of the fear of heavy equipment.

PMC "Wagner" showed the creation of an anti-tank "Wagner Line" with the help of an engineering vehicle MDK-3. The MDK-3 excavation machine is a further development of the MDK-2m machine and is designed to excavate shelters for vehicles and create pits. The car entered service with the army at the end of the 80s, but did not take root in the troops, let's say because of its excess power and turned out to be structurally difficult to operate and repair. The machine has a pressurized cabin and digs a pit, including in frozen ground, moving in reverse. The MDK-3 can dig a cover for a tank in just 3 minutes. Machine capacity: 1000 m³/hour. The depth of the created trenches is up to 3.5 meters, the width along the bottom is 3.7 meters. Crew 2 people and three paratroopers. The car has a night vision device.

The Russian army uses Shturm-S self-propelled anti-tank missile systems in battles in Ukraine. The Shturm-S self-propelled anti-tank complex was put into service in 1979. The complex can hit not only armored vehicles, but also low-speed air targets. "Shturm-S" has proven itself well during the fighting in Ukraine, one of the crews driving the "Storm-S" was able to destroy 4 enemy vehicles at a time. At a maximum range of 5000 meters, the anti-tank system of the complex can hit a target meter by meter in size with a 90% probability. The guidance system of the ATGM complex has high noise immunity due to the use of 2 special codes and 5 frequencies when guiding missiles. Calculation of the machine 9P149: 2 people. Ammunition 12 missiles "Sturm". Rate of fire up to 4 rounds per minute. The power reserve of the car is 500 km. Details of the combat use of the Shturm-S complex in Ukraine in an interview with two crews.

The crews of the Russian small anti-submarine ships "Kabardino-Balkaria" and "Aleksin" project 1331m performed training firing at an air target in the Baltic Sea. A cruise missile was used as a target, the target was hit from the AK-176 and AK-630 naval artillery systems.


The best tank destroyer ATGM Khrizantema-S of Russia. Russian servicemen are being trained on Khrizantema-S self-propelled anti-tank missile systems. The combat vehicle was created on the basis of the BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicle and was put into service in 2005. The 9K123 complex is the only combat vehicle with 2 independent missile guidance channels. ATGM "Chrysanthemum-S" can fire at once 2 targets, as it has a radar. A similar system is only on American Apache helicopters, they are equipped with a radar system operating in the three-millimeter range. The launched ATGM missile is capable of hitting targets at a distance of 400 to 5,000 meters when guided by a laser beam and up to 6,000 meters when guided by a radio channel. The combat potential of Chrysanthemum-S allows it to destroy three to five tanks alone in a surprise attack. The readiness of the complex for launch is only 20 seconds. The chassis from the BMP-3 is much more advanced in comparison with the MT-LB platform, which is used in the Shturm-S ATGM, which we talked about earlier, link in the comments.

The Russian heavy flamethrower system TOS-1A is being modernized, the chief engineer of Omsktransmash JSC said. The Ministry of Defense announced the need to modernize heavy flamethrower systems last year, and finally decided to do this after the vehicles participated in hostilities. The tactic of using heavy flamethrower systems was originally designed as a means of support, but the vehicle was more often used on the front line due to the short missile launch distance. For TOS-1A, it is planned to adapt long-range ammunition from the new TOS-2 (Tosochki), thereby increasing the range of TOS-1A to 15 km instead of the currently available 6 km. The upgraded vehicles receive modern digital communications, as well as equipment for a closed data transmission segment, which will allow them to be integrated into automatic tactical control systems. The machine will increase the accuracy of fire and simplify targeting.

Independent Russian developers are also designing new UAVs. The video shows several models of new drones, technical specifications are not yet available. The developers are supported by the Russian Tsarskoe Wolves group, which consists of experienced military advisers and experts with extensive military experience. The group helps on a volunteer basis and in combat conditions checks military developments that have not been put into mass production for various reasons.

In the Orenburg region, work continues on the re-equipment of the Yasnensky formation of strategic missile forces with the Avangard silo-based missile system. The video shows the transportation and loading of the UR-100N UTTKh intercontinental ballistic missile with the Avangard hypersonic warhead. The Avangard complex began to enter service with the Russian army in 2019. The complex is invulnerable to current and future missile defense systems. The combat unit of the Avangard complex accelerates to a speed of Mach 28, which is 9.5 kilometers per second. At speeds up to 33,000 km / h, and this is the fastest speed of human aircraft at the moment, the warhead can maneuver, which gives it the opportunity to evade missile defense systems. Promising laser air defenses will also not be able to hit the warhead, it is lined with composite materials that can withstand temperatures of several thousand degrees. Even without a warhead, only due to kinetic energy, the impact of the Avangard block is capable of causing an explosion equivalent to 18 tons of TNT. In the future, the UR-100N UTTKh launch vehicle is planned to be replaced by the RS-28 Sarmat missile.

The Russian army begins to actively use the Tornado-S MLRS. The 9K515 Tornado-S multiple launch rocket system is a modernized version of the Smerch MLRS and began to be delivered to the troops in 2016. MLRS "Tornado" is considered one of the best in the world and surpasses foreign counterparts in many respects. The firing accuracy of the Tornado-S MLRS is 15-20 times higher than that of the Smerch MLRS. Unlike the Smerch MLRS, the Tornado-S MLRS rockets are corrected by Glonass not only at the initial stage of the flight, but also at the final one. The 9A54 combat vehicle is made on the basis of a modified chassis of the MAZ-543M truck. A full salvo of the Tornado-S MLRS is the second in terms of strike power after nuclear weapons, the system ensures the delivery of several tons of explosive to the target. Twelve 300 mm rockets hit objects at ranges up to 120 km and can be individually aimed at each target. Two new types of missiles are used, 9M549 with a cassette for fragmentation elements and 9M544 with cumulative fragmentation elements, it is also possible to use missiles from older versions of the Smerch MLRS. To correct for Glonass, only the tail part of the rocket rotates in flight. It was reported that shells with a range of up to 200 km were being developed for Tornado-S, but exact data on them could not be found. After the upgrade, the MLRS has the ability to control fire using an electronic map and link to satellite navigation data. It is now unnecessary for a crew of 3 to get out of the vehicle to target the guide missile unit. The transfer time of the MLRS 9K515 from traveling to combat position is 3 minutes, the duration of a full salvo is 40 seconds.
