Today the Russian Caspian Flotilla is celebrating its 300th anniversary. The history of the Caspian flotilla dates back to 1722, when Peter I issued a decree on the founding of a military port in Astrakhan and the formation of a military flotilla. The Caspian flotilla then consisted of 200 riverboats and 45 last boats, and was commanded by Admiral General Fyodor Apraksin. Currently, the flotilla includes missile patrol ships, small missile and artillery ships, missile and artillery boats, landing hovercraft, minesweepers, parts of the marines and coastal artillery troops.

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.
