The production of Kinzhal hypersonic missiles has been increased in Russia. Russia has increased the production of hypersonic Kinzhal missiles; even according to early data, Russia had about 80 Kinzhal missiles in May. Rocket production increased fivefold, to 10 units per month. The 9-S-7760 missile, also called the Kh-47M2, was developed by the Kolomna Mechanical Engineering Design Bureau, probably based on the 9M723 ballistic missile of the Iskander complex. The Kinzhal rocket uses a dual-mode launch-propulsion solid-fuel rocket engine. The missile control system is presumably an autonomous inertial one with correction based on satellite navigation data, possibly with data from a radar map of the area. Target search is carried out by an all-weather homing head. Many experts believe that the Kinzhal missile is equipped with 8 decoys, and because of this and its enormous speed, it is difficult to shoot down the missile. At the moment, there are no facts of interception of this missile. Earlier, Vitali Klitschko reported that the missile was intercepted, but the fragments of the missile resemble the BetAB-500ShP bomb. The missile has a flight range of 3,000 kilometers at speeds of up to 14,000 kilometers per hour, and the probable circular deviation from the missile target is 1 meter. The warhead of the rocket weighs 500 kg, the weight of the rocket is about 5000 kg. The cost of the Kinzhal missile is still unknown; it is presumably comparable to the cost of one or two of the most modern anti-missile missiles.

Large-scale training of Russian Marine Corps snipers. Personnel training Russian Marine Corps snipers of the Russian Pacific Fleet. Group commander Yary explains the features of tactical and fire training of snipers. Snipers are trained to work at a range of up to 1.5 kilometers. A sniper takes about a month to learn shooting, but training to work competently as a sniper lasts from 3 to 8 years.

A cheap projectile for kamikaze drones was created in Russia. Now in Russia, many companies and individuals are developing FPV kamikaze drones, everyone is trying to reduce the cost of their drones, but no one is trying to reduce the cost of the ammunition that FPV drones use. Drones mainly use PG-7 series ammunition with a penetration of 500 mm of armor, used in the RPG-7 grenade launcher. Russian developers have developed a cheaper projectile for drones, based on unguided aircraft missiles

Assembly of the Russian BMP-3 at the plant. The Kurganmashzavod plant published footage of the assembly of the Russian BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicle. Not the entire assembly process is shown, but some of its episodes are visible. The upgraded BMP-3s are equipped with the Cape camouflage system, which reduces the vehicle's visibility in the optical, thermal and radar ranges. Added a modern Sodem sight for the gunner of the vehicle operator. To enhance protection, the vehicles received additional armor screens and grilles. It is possible that dynamic protection is installed based on new 4C24 elements, invisible under the protective cape, we previously talked about them. The BMP body is made of aluminum; after assembly, the vehicle is checked at the test site, the firing of the guns, the operation of the mechanisms and the tightness of the vehicle. It is unknown how many infantry fighting vehicles are assembled per month; after studying the data, it is possible that it is about 20 new ones and about 15 vehicles are being modernized. Now the plant has increased production rates, the plant is working around the clock, the assembly speed of the BMP-3 has increased by 2.5 times.

Russian simulator Kvadrosim for training drone operators. Russia has developed a software and hardware complex “Kvadrosim” for training operators of unmanned aerial vehicles. According to the developers of the National Technology Initiative movement, the simulator can be used for civilian and military purposes to train drone operators. The Quadrosim simulator is developed on the Unity engine and contains a domestic software base and open-source solutions that are not related to any country. The simulator allows you to select weather conditions, time of day, and drone models. The load capacity, communication range and even the influence of electronic warfare are taken into account. To simulate combat operations, military equipment is added to the simulator, indicating its vulnerabilities. Declared support for various equipment for controlling the quadcopter. Soon they will add the ability to control FPV drones.

Footage of tests of a Russian homemade remote control for controlling the Kornet ATGM has been published. This is already the second test of homemade remote control for ATGM; earlier we talked about testing the control remote for the Fagot ATGM. This remote control allows the ATGM crew to be safe during combat work.

Russian military plant "Tactical missile weapons". The execution of a state defense order at one of the Russian military enterprises in the Moscow region was checked by the Russian Minister of Defense. The production workshops of the Tactical Missile Weapons Corporation were inspected. The enterprise is quite serious, as it was noticed that the production of the Kh-31PD aircraft anti-radar missile was being carried out. And the 9-A-7759 missile and bomb complex, these are guided and gliding bombs of the “Grom” family. The 9-A-7759 guided missile is based on the Kh-38 multi-purpose missile and can hit targets at a distance of up to 120 km. The company also produces aluminum planning modules for FAB-500 M-62 aerial bombs; more details about them are in the link to the video in the comments to the video. The video shows a worker explaining how planning modules are made for FAB-500 M-62 aerial bombs. The plant is reportedly operating around the clock and production of some missiles has been increased 5-fold.

Russia's strike weapons are FAB-500M62 gliding bombs. Russian aviation began to actively use the FAB-500M62 aerial bomb, equipped with a planning module; it became the main weapon of the Russian army. The advantages of aerial bombs with gliding modules are that the mass of the combat load in the bomb reaches approximately 70% of the launch mass, while in a similar rocket it is only 15-20%. Examples of using a bomb are in the link to the video in the comments to the video. The FAB-500 M62 high-explosive bomb was put into service in 1962 and contains 213 explosives. The bomb is simple in design and made of cast iron, while the cost of the FAB-500 M62 bomb is only 300 thousand rubles or $3,100. The height of bomb release is usually from 570 meters to 12 kilometers, with a release speed from 500 to 1900 km/h. The use of this bomb with a planning module allows for strikes at ranges of up to 70 kilometers. After the bomb explodes, a crater is left up to 8 meters in diameter and 3 meters deep. The radius of the bomb is about 250 meters.

The gunner of the Russian T-90M Proryv tank spoke about the tank’s instruments.

Modernization of KAB-500 adjustable aerial bombs. Russia will improve the adjustable aerial bombs of the KAB-500 series, this was announced by the director of the Tactical Missile Weapons Corporation, interview at the end of the video. Now Russian aviation uses adjustable aerial bombs KAB-500S-E, it is worth noting that they are rarely used, perhaps due to the cost of the KAB-500S bomb, it is about 3 million rubles or 30,000 dollars, or a short release range of up to 9 kilometers. The bomb was developed in 2000 and is designed to destroy large stationary ground and surface targets. KAB-500S-E is guided by GLONASS and GPS coordinates, which are entered on the ground or can be specified from the carrier in preparation for the reset. The mass of the bomb is 560 kg, the mass of the high-explosive part is 460 kg. The permissible altitude for dropping a bomb is from 500 meters to 10 kilometers, the speed of the carrier aircraft when dropping a bomb is from 550 to 1100 km/h. The bomb hits targets with a probable circular deviation of no more than 10 meters.

@Soldier35 , I just noticed this thread, had no idea it existed and will be following it from now on. Keep up the good work. :tup:
Military training of former Russian prisoners. Video of military training, Russian recruits of the "North" unit, consisting of former prisoners. Soldiers are trained by instructors from the 200th separate guards motorized rifle brigade of the Russian Northern Fleet.

The Russian army now has AODES Desertcross 800-3 buggies made in China. How the Desertcross 800-3 all-terrain vehicles came to be is unknown, data on them varies, some report that these were purchases from the Ministry of Defense, other sources say that the buggies were purchased with private funds. Despite their apparent simplicity, soldiers really need these machines. The buggies weigh 849 kg and are equipped with a 60 hp engine. and have a load capacity of 300 kg. The all-terrain vehicle can carry 3 people. The approximate price in Russia of the Desertcross 800-3 buggy is 1,650,000 rubles or 17 thousand dollars.

Survival of Russian pilots on enemy territory, exercises. Russian pilots conducted training on pilot survival after ejection. The training took place under the guidance of instructors from a special flight crew survival center.

Testing the Triton electronic warfare system of the PPSh company, protecting tanks from drones. The Russian company PPSh has developed the Triton electronic warfare system to protect tanks from FPV drones. Published a promotional video for testing the Triton complex. The complex can be installed on tanks and other equipment, it can also protect infantry positions and even be installed on trees. According to the test scenario, an FPV drone is chasing an ATV; judging by the video, the Triton complex was able to suppress the drone’s control channels. As it has now become known, the Triton electronic warfare system operates in 9 ranges, from 400 to 5600 MHz, most likely the complex can change operating frequencies.
