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.

Delivery and storage of fuel in field storage facilities of the Russian Army. Personnel of the work of units of the fuel logistics service of the Russian Army. The video shows the delivery and transfer of fuel to field storage facilities of the Russian army. Fuel is transported by railway tanks; upon arrival at the station, the presence and serviceability of seals on the railway tanks are checked, after which samples of petroleum products are taken. A fuel sample is taken in each tank, from the bottom, top and middle of the tank. After the laboratory concludes that the quality of the fuel meets the established standards, the fuel is drained.
Loading devices are connected and fuel is pumped into polymer elastic tanks of the field warehouse. Polymer tanks are very convenient; they can be quickly camouflaged and placed on any area of the terrain. The polymer tank is highly durable and has a capacity of 50 cubic meters. Next, the fuel arrives at a stationary warehouse, from where tankers deliver it to the units. Vehicles intended for refueling and transporting fuel are camouflaged and additionally armored.

A new batch of BMP-3 manufactured in 2024 was sent by Kurganmashzavod to the Russian troops. Quite often they ask why the BMP-3 does not have protection. According to the company, additional protection kits, anti-cumulative grilles and armored screens, are supplied to the customer as separate products and are installed on the equipment upon the arrival of the combat vehicles at the unit. Now the number of Russian BMP-3s transferred to the army since the beginning of this year is one and a half times greater than the volumes of the same period in 2023.

During the visit of the Russian Minister of Defense to defense industry enterprises in the Tula region, the new Russian bicaliber MLRS "Vozrozhdenie" was first noticed at NPO "Splav". Footage of the real installation appeared for the first time. Judging by the video, it is possible that the Vozrozhdenie MLRS will be an exact copy of the Russian mining vehicle "Agriculture", they will simply change the package with missiles, as shown in the video. Since visually it is a copy of the “Agriculture” mining machine, more details about it can be found in the link to the video in the comments to the video. The developed MLRS "Vozrozhdenie" will possibly reduce the number of platforms with MLRS in the Russian army, and the creation of this vehicle will also speed up the reloading of the MLRS. It is assumed that the new MLRS will be able to use 120 and 220 mm projectiles from the TOS-1A, TOS-2 flamethrower systems, the Uragan MLRS, the Grad MLRS and the Agricultural remote mining vehicle. As you can see in the video, the production of the Vozrozhdenie bicaliber MLRS was quickly mastered and there are already ready-made combat vehicles.

The Russian army will begin testing the modified Zubilo unmanned armored vehicle in April. Reportedly, the unmanned armored vehicle was modified based on the wishes of the Russian Ministry of Defense. Among the key improvements, weight reduction and increased cross-country ability probably increased autonomy, since this parameter did not suit the military. The Remdiesel unmanned armored vehicle was first presented in 2023 and is designed to support assault groups, transport ammunition, transport cargo and the wounded, as well as recharge radio stations and drones. The armored unmanned platform "Zibilo" was created on the chassis of a serial KamAZ truck; it got its name from the shape of the hull. For the first time it was shown with a ZU-23-2 anti-aircraft gun as a weapon, but whether this will be its standard weapon is still unknown. The armored vehicle can quickly begin to be mass-produced, since it is created from available serial components. The Zubilo armored car is equipped with a 350 hp engine. has a curb weight of 13,300 kg and a load capacity of 2,700 kg, a maximum highway speed of 100 km/h, and a climbing angle of at least 30°.

Footage of the use of the Russian TDA-2K machine, intended for setting up smoke screens; we previously talked about the TDA-2M thermal smoke machine. The TDM-2K thermal smoke machine is manufactured by the Tambovpolimermash company and put into service in 1982. TDA-2K is located on the chassis of a KAMAZ-4310 vehicle and is intended for camouflage of various objects with neutral aerosols, as well as for disinfestation of areas and structures with insecticidal aerosols. The operating principle of the machine is based on the evaporation of a safe smoke-forming substance in a stream of hot gases, followed by condensation of the resulting vapors in the atmosphere. The vehicle deploys in 5 minutes and is capable of placing a smoke screen at a distance of at least 1000 meters for 4 to 13 hours on a single charge, doing this while moving at speeds of up to 40 km/h. The working volume of the aerosol-forming substance tank is 4200 liters. The crew of the car is 2 people.

The crew of the Russian T-72B tank showed homemade protection against drones. Currently, there is no full-fledged factory protection of Russian tanks from drones; the rear part of the tanks is especially vulnerable, so tank crews are forced to install the protection themselves. The tank's turret does not rotate, since it is designed to operate from indirect firing positions, like an artillery mount.
