The Russian Titan armored vehicle, developed by Remdizel specialists, is undergoing the final stage of state testing. soon the cars will go to the troops. Titan armored vehicles are a development of the Typhoon family of armored vehicles, also developed by Remdizel, we previously talked about them, the link to the video is in the comments to the video. Unlike the base vehicle, Titan is produced only with Russian components. The vehicle's armor is the same as that of the Typhoon armored car and provides protection against 7.62 mm caliber bullets, fragments of 155 mm shells and an explosion of 6 kg of TNT under the wheel or 4 kg under the bottom. The Titan armored vehicle is equipped with a Spica combat module, with a 2A42 cannon with 300 rounds, a 7.62 mm machine gun with 1000 rounds and 2 Konkurs-M anti-tank guided missiles with a firing range of up to 4 kilometers. It is possible to install foreign combat modules. The vehicle weighs 15 tons, the load capacity is 1420 kg, and the vehicle has a fairly large cargo compartment. Under the hood of the Titan is a 350-horsepower engine, allowing the armored car to accelerate along the highway to 100 kilometers per hour and overcome a ford 1.75 meters deep. The crew of the vehicle is 2 people and up to 6 equipped soldiers. The price of the Titan armored car has not yet been announced.

Using imported components from the West on the Typhoon (a military vehicle) was really retarded on their part.
Did they learn nothing from 2014 sanctions?
Thankfully this happened before it had been produced in large numbers.

Russian Prometheus complex, robotization of armored vehicles. Russia has begun a full cycle of testing the Prometheus software and hardware complex, capable of converting any armored vehicle, including tanks, armored personnel carriers or infantry fighting vehicles into a remote-controlled robotic vehicle. The complex was developed by the Signal Research Institute. Military equipment equipped with the Prometheus complex is capable of moving along given coordinates without the participation of an operator, autonomously determining the best route, successfully avoiding obstacles, and also quickly processing information received using technical vision. The Prometheus complex is designed for installation on any serial model of military equipment. For example, on the BMP-3 it allows robotic functions of the driver and gunner. At the same time, the Prometheus complex does not affect the ergonomics of the cabin - standard seats for the crew remain inside.

Interesting, you can just send another unit for a crew of a disabled vehicule with that system. Or bring back a vehicule with a disabled driver if the system still good.

The commander of the Russian tank support combat vehicle "Terminator" showed how it works at the training ground. These are the first shots showing how the Terminator BMPT is structured inside and the operation of its guidance systems.

The Russian Arena-M active protection complex will be improved, General Designer Valery Kashin announced this to the Russian Minister of Defense. The Arena-M complex for protecting tanks from ATGMs and shells will be equipped on T-72, T-80 and T-90 tanks, and possibly on the Terminator BMPT. The Arena-M complex will also have the function of protecting the tank from drones, since this is now the main threat to tanks. It is not reported how this will be done; most likely there will be a new radar. The Russian active protection complex "Arena-M" was tested back in 2021, it was tested on Russian and foreign ammunition, it is worth noting that it was never installed on tanks. The Arena-M active protection system is similar to the Israeli Trophy tank protection system from Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd., which is installed on the Merkava Mark IV and M1A2C Abrams tanks. The Arena-M complex consists of a radar, an on-board computer, a console and blocks of protective ammunition in installation shafts. The Arena-M complex, with the help of a radar, detects a missile or projectile flying at a tank, after which it gives the command to neutralize it. To do this, narrowly targeted ammunition placed along the perimeter of the tower is fired towards the missile. The complex detects targets at a distance of up to 50 meters and fires defensive ammunition in 0.07 seconds. Each defensive ammunition fires at its own sector around the tank. The use of the Arena-M complex makes it possible to approximately double the survivability of a tank during offensive operations.

It is expensive like hell. And Trophy doesn't seem to be of much use in city fighting. This would have the same issues.

Russian President Vladimir Putin visited Uralvagonzavod in Nizhny Tagil, which produces Russian armored vehicles. The head of state got acquainted with the production process of armored vehicles and talked with plant employees. The video shows the T-72BZM and T-90M Proryv tanks ready to be sent to the troops. Judging by the video, special attention was paid to the Terminator tank support combat vehicle. Reportedly, a new workshop for the production of transmissions for military equipment, modern machine tools, as well as samples of finished products were shown. Among other things, the head of state inspected the area preparing equipment for run and firing tests, while work in the workshop did not stop, installation of systems and equipment continued. Uralvagonzavod is the main plant producing tanks for the Russian army. These include the T-14 on the Armata platform, the modernized T-72BZM tank and the T-90 Proryv.

The heavy transport unmanned aerial aircraft of the ultra-short take-off and landing “Partizan” has completed the first stage of flight testing. The UAV is based on the TVS-2MS aircraft. The flight of the heavy UAV lasted 20 minutes at an altitude of 200 meters at speeds from 50 to 200 kilometers per hour. During testing, a pilot was in the cockpit to monitor the parameters. An aircraft with a drone function was developed at the Siberian Aviation Research Institute named after Chaplygin. The Partizan UAV is designed to transport cargo and can be used for civil and military purposes. The Russian Partizan UAV is equipped with a hybrid propulsion system and can take off and land on a site measuring 50 by 50 meters, with obstacles at the border of the site up to 15 meters high. The flight range of the Partizan UAV is up to 1 thousand kilometers, at an altitude of up to 8000 meters with a maximum speed of over 300 km/h, payload weight of up to one ton. As reported, the Partizan unmanned aircraft will be 100% made in Russia. In 2024, it is planned to deploy a production complex and produce 10 serial copies of the Partizan heavy UAV.
