T-14 Armata Tank Able to Detect Targets Without Participation of Crew, Source Claims.
Sputnik MILITARY & INTELLIGENCE 04:13 GMT 25.02.2021
In 2022, Russia will launch serial supplies of its cutting-edge post-war generation tank, the T-14 Armata, touted to have no equal. With its combat module unmanned and completely remote-controlled, its crew can remain isolated from the fuel section and munitions, meaning that survivability is increased.
For the first time in the history of tank manufacture, Russia's T-14 Armata tank can find and choose targets on the battlefield without the participation of the crew, a source in the military complex told Sputnik on Wednesday.
T-14 capabilities were successfully tested during the military training. It is noted that the decision on whether to hit the chosen target is still up to a human.
"The fire control system (FCS) of Armata has a digital catalog with signatures of typical targets of the battlefield, including tanks, APMs, helicopters, etc. Artificial intelligence elements allow the onboard computing facilities of the machine to independently search for targets [...] and recognize them, [...] to carry out priority selection and take for escort", the military source told Sputnik, outlining that there are no analogues in foreign military equipment to Armata's fire control system.
One military drill was conducted with the use of mathematical models and semi-natural target layouts, including photocontrast images and thermal imitators.
"Also, tests were carried out at the proving ground, where Russian armored vehicles acted as objects of search for the Armata. Based on the results of the drills, the effectiveness of the system is confirmed to comply with the declared combat characteristics", the military source said. To search and capture targets, the T-14 uses a combined sight that works in both the visible and infrared ranges.
Touted as the world's only third-generation post-war tank with no equal, the Armata has a combat module that is completely remote-controlled, while the crew is securely accommodated in an armored capsule isolated from both the fuel section and munitions. This means that in the event of the tank getting hit, the crew is more likely to survive.
According to the director general of the Russian state arms exporter Rosoboronexport, Alexander Mikheev, six countries have expressed interest in purchasing the T-14 tank for their militaries.

Russian Army unveils electric recon vehicle with solar batteries and drone landing pad (PHOTOS)
RT.com 25 Aug, 2021 13:39
The Russian Defense Ministry has unveiled its first multipurpose electric car that assists in reconnaissance and drone missions and is equipped with a solar battery.
The ‘ERA’ vehicle was unveiled at the ARMY-2021 arms expo outside Moscow. The Russian Defense Ministry (MoD) said the vehicle stands out from other Russian models due to its multipurpose role.
Capable of going as fast as 80km/h (50mph), the car can be used for a wide array of missions, ranging from reconnaissance to delivery of medical equipment and other vital supplies.
The ERA is designed to move silently and traverse rough terrain. It is fitted with protection against explosions, floodlights, a drone landing pad, and a solar battery. The vehicle was tested out during a military drill last month, the MoD said.
It is not the first time that Russia’s defense industry presented an electric car. In 2018, the famed Kalashnikov company rolled out its OVUM vehicle for the Moscow traffic police. A year later, the firearms maker unveiled the UV-4 car intended to be used as a taxi cab.
The Era military-industrial hub, which designed the new car, earlier showed a new surveillance drone with an unusual spherical frame that protects it from collisions.
The Boomerang K-17, a new-generation IFV, infantry fighting vehicle | The Kalashnikova Show Ep 33
RT Documentary Oct 5, 2021
The Boomerang K-17 is a cutting-edge Russian military hardware. The new-generation armoured fighting vehicle has wheels, not tracks, unlike other Russian armoured vehicles. The amphibious 8X8 IFV can go as fast as 100 kph on land and up to 12 kph on water.
It isn't just fast, it’s powerful too. The Boomerang K-17 is equipped with a 30mm autocannon, machine gun and four Kornet anti-tank missiles. The maximum firing range is 10 kilometres. The Boomerang has a remotely operated turret, which the designers say gives the crew extra protection. The Afghanit active protection system and sturdy armour are also there to keep the crew safe.
The Boomerang IFV can carry eight tonnes of cargo and was first displayed at the 2015 Victory Day Parade and has since been exhibited at several major military events. It still has to make it into service with the Russian Army. Developers expect it to become popular on the export market because production costs are three times lower than earlier models.
TsarSamuil: Medicines aren't allowed to be sold on the market without a 15 year trial period, to determine short n long term effects. Sputnik just turned 1 year, others not even that, just months, how can we determine long term effects without the data from long term

TsarSamuil: exposure? Does anyone have a time machine to go 14 years or so into the future n come back n say whether we have good vaccines? Fear makes world abandon its own standards..Besides, vaccines for other illnesses that have been developed for YEARS actually
Aug 24, 2021 11:23:40 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: help. These covid vaccines are literally SHIT, why else do they demand you take 1, 2 n now 3 shots? The problem is also a disease becomes resilient if u administer a weak vaccine that doesn't do the job proper. Allow illness to survive just makes it strong
Aug 24, 2021 11:25:04 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: instead if we go by the book, we should all wait for a really good vaccine to take out the illness for good. Now...we may never get rid of it..but understandably the world economy has a hard time dealing with lock downs, but that is just needless panic
Aug 24, 2021 11:27:06 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: why Swe had fared well with country not being locked down? Because they are cold people, keeping distance was the thing before covid-19 was ever heard of, I hope world doesn't become like that, but some could use a little common sense n change in behavior.

TsarSamuil: It's no wonder covid hits so many Arabs in the country, stupid bastards..
Aug 24, 2021 11:29:38 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: If I go to H&M a new shirt, if an Arab wants to buy a pair of pants, not only is his whole family along, his friends, even his freaking grandmother is along n all chattering along in a big dumb group of ignorance..
Aug 24, 2021 11:33:05 GMT -5
Boro: Thx for the response. I'm not sure... It seems the vaccines work, at least people aren't dying of Covid. Those who get ill have a problem, it's not "just a flu". Maybe it's from a chinese laboratory, who knows...
Aug 24, 2021 13:46:55 GMT -5
Boro: I agree regarding Arabs..
Aug 24, 2021 13:50:39 GMT -5
Boro: Be glad, Sweden isn't overpopulated.
Aug 24, 2021 14:11:49 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: true, vaccines do help somewhat, maybe better than nothing..I hope in 2022 we can come out of this nightmare..

Boro: Horrible times, indeed.
