A new combat laser for combating drones is being prepared for testing in Russia, the Sputnik agency reported. The laser was developed by the Scientific and Technical Center "LEMT" of Belarus and Russian research institutes. The combat laser will have a power of about 100 kW, it is being tested not only on drones, but also on other surfaces. Previously, specialists from the LEMT company successfully tested a 30 kW laser in the Middle East. There is no information about the guidance system and radars used. The system effectively detects drones that are hit at a distance of 400 meters to 6 kilometers. The cost of firing laser systems with a power of up to 60 kW is about 1-2 dollars, with a power of up to 480 kW - up to 10 dollars.

Rare archival footage used by units of the Russian Pacific Fleet, the Soviet ZSU-23-4 “Shilka” in Ukraine. It is worth noting that the ZSU-23-4 “Shilka” is also used by the Ukrainian army, but there is practically no video of it either.
ZSU-23-4 "Shilka" was produced from 1964 to 1982, despite such a long production period, there are supposedly no more than 100 of them left in Russia, and no more than 40 in Ukraine. The Shilka air defense system is used extremely rarely, since training on it takes a long time, and the radius of destruction of targets is only 2 kilometers.
Detailed technical characteristics of the Shilka air defense system on the screen. The ZSU-23-4 "Shilka" is armed with a quadruple 23-mm AZP-23 "Amur" cannon with a rate of fire of 1,000 rounds per minute per barrel. The ZSU-23-4 “Shilka” combat vehicle weighs 19 tons and is equipped with a 280 hp engine. and reaches speeds of up to - 50 km/h. Power reserve 300 km. The thickness of the armor in the frontal part of the hull is up to 15 mm. The crew of the combat vehicle is four people. Details of the combat work of the ZSU-23-4 “Shilka” in Ukraine in the video.

The Russian airspace control system SKVP is being tested in the Moscow region. The developer of the complex air defense "Central Design Bureau of Apparatus Engineering" from Tula, there are very few technical details. The system consists of 24 phased array radar stations, each weighing 110 kg, mounted on tripods, vehicles or buildings. The technical capabilities of the airborne missile system allow you to simultaneously track up to 20 air targets, including small drones. At the same time, the system determines their type, flight altitude and distance to them. The SKVP system can detect targets at speeds of up to 972 km/h. and is capable of working in conjunction with air defense or electronic warfare systems; test samples have already worked for 18 thousand hours without shutting down. You can control the system from a laptop. The radar system of the SKVP system allows you to detect a Boeing type aircraft at a distance of more than 90 km, a Cessna type aircraft at a distance of 30 km, a Furia or Mugin type UAV at a range of up to 15-18 km, and Mavic 2 type drones at a range of up to 4 km.

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.

The first video of the installation of Russian FAB-3000 bombs on a Su-34 aircraft has been published. The FAB-3000 bomb is equipped with a universal airborne planning and correction module. Until today, it was not known exactly which aircraft use FAB-3000 bombs with UMPC.
