international forum”Army-2022” began work yesterday at the Patriot Congress and Exhibition Center near Moscow. It will show not only promising developments for the military, but also purely civilian projects. The forum has become a platform where a wide audience of potential customers can get acquainted with technological innovations. Stands of the state corporation Rostec occupy a special place in the forum – they present, in total, more than 1,000 exhibits. Each of them is a whole story, but we will tell only about the most promising ones.
The new modernized BPM-3, nicknamed by the military as the “Queen of Infantry”, was of particular interest to the public. The new version is characterized by the fact that it can carry out combat missions without a crew on board. The tasks of the driver and gunner are performed by the robotic module “Titmouse”. Previously, it has already been used in the BMD-4M2. The new BPM-3 will be developed in close collaboration between Kurganmashzavod and VNII Signal, which are part of the High Precision Complexes holding.
The use of drones is becoming a trend in the army. In this regard, a promising development is the KUB-E drone. It can stay in the air for up to 30 minutes. All the while, he silently moves over the enemy’s location, choosing a target. This explosive-packed kamikaze drone is capable of hitting enemy infrastructure, personnel and lightly armored vehicles. The drone is able to attack armored vehicles at the most vulnerable points of defense, diving vertically from a great height.
We wrote about the Tablet-M-IR artillery control complex in one of the previous materials. Its use eliminates the influence of the “human factor” on the speed and accuracy of target designation. The complex allows you to effectively manage artillery and mortar crews from a mobile command post, coordinate their actions to maximize the effectiveness of strikes. Preliminary testing of the complex will be completed this year.
AK-308 is a new model of the legendary Kalashnikov assault rifle. It was designed for the standard NATO caliber 7.62×51 (.308 Win) cartridge, which is popular overseas. The novelty is aimed at foreign customers. The latest small arms implement the latest, promising and proven solutions. This weapon positions itself as a rifle with a basic single-shot mode. But in emergency situations, the possibility of firing bursts is provided. The machine will be exported to the countries of the Middle East and Latin America, where cartridges of the specified caliber are used. It has an effective range of 800 meters and weighs only 4.3 kilograms.
But motosurfing is a purely civilian development. It is aimed not only at sports enthusiasts, but also at lovers of outdoor activities on the water. Surf is made of composite materials and is produced with 100 cc ICE. In the future, Ruselectronics may release its electric version. A full tank of fuel allows this incredible vehicle to travel at 55 km/h for an hour. Interestingly, to operate a motosurf you do not need to obtain special rights and permits.
