The first footage of the 125-mm high-explosive fragmentation tank projectile 3OF82 “Telnik”, which appeared in the Russian army, has been published. The shells were produced under a contract dated 2021. Now the Telnik projectile can be used from the 2A82-1M gun mounted on Russian T-90M Poryv tanks. It is expected that the projectile will soon be adapted for the latest modifications of the Russian T-80BVM tanks with the 2A46M-4 gun and the T-72B3 tank with the 2A46M-5-01 gun. The Telnik projectile, weighing 23 kg and with a warhead weighing 3 kg, is equipped with a projectile trajectory detonation system, with induction input and temporary installation of a head fuse.

This is really nasty stuff. It is a programmed anti-infantry round which explodes into fragments. The detonation point can be selected, and the fragment dispersion pattern can also be selected.

"The Telnik tank round, featuring a remote detonation fragmentation projectile, is engineered for precise targeting of enemy infantry in trenches or dispersed across open terrain. It is up to 6-8 times more effective against infantry positions over conventional tank high-explosive fragmentation projectiles.

The Telnik round is adaptable to various armed formations such as lightly armored targets, small-sized surface targets besides unmanned aerial vehicles and helicopters.

Its remote detonation technology enables precise targeting directly above the enemy's location, such as over a trench. This creates a fragmentation field, showering the enemy with shrapnel while generating a powerful shock wave, effectively doubling the damage inflicted on the target.

Incorporating shells with remote detonation, like the Telnik, bolsters the overall firepower of modern main battle tanks. Additionally, it mitigates the risk of MBT losses by effectively countering anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) operators."

Russian military personnel showed a homemade buggy "Zveroboy" for fighting drones. The servicemen independently welded the body of the buggy and assembled all the weapons that have recently been used to fight drones. The buggy is equipped with two turrets with a thermal imaging sight and a six-barreled shotgun. At the front of the vehicle there is a turret with two PKT machine guns, between which there is a homemade six-barreled muzzle-loading shotgun. There are also six short barrels installed around the perimeter of the buggy for firing homemade charges made from 7.62 mm bullets. The turret is controlled via a monitor from the passenger seat. The rear turret rotates 360 degrees and is equipped with six twin AK-12 assault rifles that fire simultaneously. The buggy's power reserve, engine and other technical details are not reported.

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.

There was parade in Minsk. Most of the Stuff is Russian but it shows Belarus a small population European country can arrange big military parades. the unique part is 4 Ka-52m with 4 external fuel tanks each in fly past. l dont think many countries in world can do it.


The surprize thing is distance and speed of interception of small target. Korean analogue of this system bought in Gulf Emirates.

S-350 Vityaz missile system simultaneously hit 12 HIMARS missiles
According to him, the target was captured at a distance of about 90 kilometers, and the destruction was carried out at 70. From the moment of detection to the destruction of the target, the complex spends no more than 8 seconds. The main advantage of the missiles of this complex is that it is equipped with a homing head. The installation has a fully autonomous mode. Among the targets successfully destroyed by the "Vityaz" are ATACMS MLRS missiles, as well as enemy jet UAVs, including aircraft-type, he added.

Rare footage of a meeting over the Barents Sea between a Russian Il-38 anti-submarine aircraft and a Norwegian P-3C Orion reconnaissance patrol aircraft. The planes flew nearby for some time, after which the P-3C Orion went to the side.

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.

Russia needs more S-350 systems around Ukraine. They would be more resistant to saturation attacks because of the larger magazine size.
The video is wrong about the range though. It has up to 120 km range.

The Su-30 will receive new engines in 2025 - based on those that are currently installed on the Su-35 and Su-57 aircraft. Fighters are already being tested with new engines. “We will get increased climb rate, turning radius and engine life. I think this will go into series production next year,” said Oleg Pankov, chief designer of the Su-30 program, in the “Military Acceptance” program on Zvezda.
