The Russian nuclear submarines "Omsk" of project 949A "Antey" and the submarine K-573 "Novosibirsk" of project 885M hit a sea target imitating a warship. The exercises were carried out as part of the Umka-2022 integrated Arctic expedition. The Bastion coastal missile system of the Pacific Fleet was also used in the exercises. The target was hit by Granit and Oniks cruise missiles launched from submarines at a distance of 400 kilometers. The Bastion coastal missile system hit the target from a distance of 300 kilometers.

The Russian Defense Ministry showed footage of the Su-34 aircraft and the Kh-29 missile mounted on it. The Kh-29 high-precision air-to-surface missile was put into service in 1980, despite its age, foreign military experts consider it one of the "most successful Russian missiles." The Kh-29 missile is designed to destroy fortified targets and is capable of penetrating about 1 meter of concrete covered with 3 meters of soil. When hitting the runway of the airfield, the rocket leaves a funnel with a diameter of 15 meters and a depth of about 6 meters. The probable deviation of the missile from the target is two meters, which allows it to be aimed even at windows. The estimated price of the X-29 missile is about 300 thousand dollars, the data is based on a lawsuit filed by the Russian Ministry of Defense against several servicemen in case of accidental damage to missiles. The missile is produced with a laser and television homing head, the video shows the Kh-29T missile. The maximum missile launch range is from 8 to 30 kilometers, the altitude of use is from 200 meters to 5 kilometers, depending on the modification. The mass of the warhead is 317 kilograms.

The Russian Tu-95MS performed planned flights and worked out the elements of piloting techniques during refueling Tu-95MS in the air, including in adverse weather conditions. Serial production of Tu-95MS strategic bombers continued until the beginning of 1992. They still remain in service as carriers of cruise missiles, including such as the Kh-101. Thanks to lower fuel consumption than jet aircraft, and most importantly, greater stealth from SBIRS satellites, which are able to observe large jet-powered strategic bombers by their exhausts.

The Russian Ministry of Defense showed the work of calculating a mobile radio relay station of the R-416GM series, consisting of several types of vehicles. Military radio relay stations provide for the exchange of all types of information between military command posts. The Russian mobile multi-channel radio relay station R-416G-MS is based on the KamAZ-5350 chassis and deployed in 30 minutes, the height of the telescopic mast of the station is 30 meters. Details of the operation of the radio relay communication station complex in the video.

This video about Sukhoi SuperJet new and old. 5 on assembly line.
The interesting point is they still need 12K more people to boost production Civil Production. this despite low volume of military production. Avg salary is approaching $1500 a month in these plants.

Weird because is seems too accurate to be using just a civilian GNSS signal and a INS system, errors could be up to 5-10 meters, good to hitting buildings but not vehicles. You could navigate the drone using way-points but hitting a target that accurate I think some sort of fixing is needed, maybe they have a cheap camera under the belly that allow the drone to fix into a target.

Electro optical turret on the Harop:

Shahed 136 doesn't seem to use that or mount cameras of any sort.

I watched a Liu XiaoFei video recently where he speculates Shahed-136 may use Millimeter wave Active Radar Homing. Possible that Shahed-136 doesn't have a "man-in-the loop" function unlike Harop. Maybe someone who knows more about the drone types and guidance can expand more on this.

No. well do you see any cameras in Shahed ?

It's clearly fly autonumously like a cruise missile, guided by its INS and Satellite navigation e.g GPS or Glonass.
I don't see any cameras either. I read somewhere they use other drones in the vicinity for targetting.

It's strange, even a plain optical camera would have been useful and not added much cost or weight. I imagine the Iranians struggled to integrate the electronics or datalink.
