Russian military personnel showed a homemade wheeled platform “Scorpion-M”, essentially an FPV drone, only on wheels. The Scorpion-M robotic platform can be used for reconnaissance of terrain, trawling breakage and pressure sensors used in anti-personnel mines and improvised explosive devices; the drone can be equipped with explosives weighing up to 40 kg. Weighing up to 20 kg, the Scorpion-M ground drone is capable of moving at speeds of up to 12 km/h, its battery life is about 4 hours, at a distance of up to 5000 meters. Interview in video.

Operation of the Russian combat vehicle TOS-2 "Tosochka". A Russian serviceman told his impressions of the TOS-2 “Tosochka” heavy flamethrower machine and showed the work of its crew. The firing range of the TOS-2 "Tosochka" is up to 18 kilometers. New samples of TOS-2 “Tosochka” are also equipped with grilles for protection against drones. The developer of the TOS-2 “Tosochka” is the Tula research and production association “Splav” named after A. N. Ganichev; the combat vehicle is produced by the machine-building plant “Motovilikha Plants” in the city of Perm. Details in the video.

Rostec has supplied the Russian troops with a batch of the latest 152 mm Malva self-propelled wheeled howitzers manufactured in 2024. Wheeled self-propelled guns "Malva" on the BAZ 8x8 chassis were put into mass production on October 26, 2023, technical information about them is in the link to the video in the comments to the video. The Malva 2S43 self-propelled gun has high maneuverability, a long service life and is economical to operate, in comparison with self-propelled guns on a tracked chassis, and they can also be quickly transferred by Il-76 aircraft.
The Malva self-propelled gun can fire all types of ammunition that are used on 152-mm gun mounts, such as Msta-B, 2 S19 Msta-S, D-20, 2S3 Akatsiya and ML-20. You can also use adjustable Krasnopol projectiles with laser illumination.

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.

Russian military personnel showed a homemade buggy "ZVeraBoy" 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 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.

The Russian parachute platform "Atom" for landing robotic equipment and cargo was tested at the Ryazan Airborne Forces School. The transport system consists of a landing platform, a parachute with a controlled wing-type canopy, as well as equipment for automatic flight and guidance. The system is oriented using GLONASS or GPS coordinates. After the platform is dropped from the aircraft, folding panels in the form of wings open on it, and under the platform, shock-absorbing containers are filled with air, this softens the landing of the platform. Equipment installed on the platform is automatically disconnected upon landing and can immediately enter into battle. After the platform lands and the equipment is unloaded, it can be used as material for fortifications, swimming facilities, structures for establishing water crossings and for the construction of field life support facilities. The Atom platform is designed for landing from low altitudes - up to 200 meters.

Long-range M-46 guns were noticed in the Russian army. Soviet 130-mm M-46 cannons, one of the eyewitnesses noted, on one of the railway trains in Russia, earlier M-46 cannons were noticed on the road near Novocherkassk. It is unknown whether the Russian army began to use these guns, but it was previously reported that the guns are used in Ukraine. Presumably, shells for them can be supplied to Russia from Iran and North Korea. M-46 guns entered service with the USSR in 1951; for its time it was one of the best artillery pieces. Despite their age, these guns under different indices and in a modernized video are now in service and storage in 40 countries; Ukraine uses them. The M-46 guns have a 55-caliber barrel and are capable of hitting targets at a range of up to 27 kilometers with a conventional projectile and active-missile projectiles at a range of up to 37 kilometers. When using Chinese and Iranian active missiles, the firing range reaches 44 kilometers. The gun's rate of fire is up to 8 rounds per minute, with separate cartridge loading. The gun crew consists of 9 people, the transfer time from traveling to firing position is 8 minutes. The weight of the gun in the stowed position is 8450 kg. According to some estimates, there are about 600-700 M-46 guns in the warehouses of the Russian army.

Training of drivers of nuclear missile systems Yars of Russia, 161st school of technicians of the Russian Air Force. Personnel for the training of driver mechanics of the Russian Yars mobile ground missile systems. Before receiving permission to operate multi-axle military equipment, drivers are trained in driving using simulators at the 161st School of Technicians of the Strategic Missile Forces of Russia. The video shows the latest simulator for training driver mechanics of autonomous launchers of the Yars mobile missile system. The school trains driver mechanics for heavy military vehicles on the MAZ-543, MAZ-7917, MAZ-MZKT-79221 chassis, as well as support vehicles for mobile missile systems. Military simulators are designed in such a way that they allow you to simulate all possible situations with high accuracy. The leader of training sessions can not only control the actions of students in real time, but also correct them. After training on simulators, drivers are trained on real cars, but instead of rockets, water containers are installed on the truck chassis, outwardly indistinguishable from the original.
The 161st school of technicians of the RSVP was founded in 1983 and is located on the territory of the Kapustin Yar training ground in the Astrakhan region.
