Russian Defense Ministry intends to start buying advanced main battle tanks on a single platform heavy armor "Armata" in 2014. On this, as reports "Interfax", the deputy minister of defense of Russia, Yuri Borisov. According to him, at first will be placed an order to supply pilot batch of 16 new tanks.

On the basis of an experimental batch of combat vehicles planned for a military-controlled operation. Further details regarding the procurement of advanced combat vehicles Borisov did not specify. According to the current schedule the first prototype of the tank on the platform "Armata" is to be created in 2013, and in 2015 is expected to supply the new tanks in the army.

Technical project "Almaty was" approved by the Ministry of Defense of Russia March 23, 2012. According to the chief of the Main Armored Directorate of the Defense Ministry, Major-General Alexander Shevchenko, the project meets all the requirements of the military. Is engaged in the development of promising tank "Uralvagonzavod».

Kalashnikov AK-12

In November tests were completed the second prototype AK-12. At the moment, started the production of a pilot series. Official information on this weapon is little known, however, and it is quite enough to draw definite conclusions. Most likely range of 2012 will consist of rifles and machine guns. It is possible to set up a sniper rifle and machine-based, which will replace the SVD. As hundredth series, the AK-12 will be created for different cartridges. The new machine will get a new energonomiku. Handle fire control will have an anatomical shape. In addition, the new machine will be provided for the convenience of changing the latch store.

Despite the fact that the vapor-automatic will present the work of the mechanism it will be slightly reduced, thereby improving accuracy. As in previous versions, the new sample will be present to mount a grenade launcher and a bayonet-knife. Will and side plate for an optical sight. In addition, it is equipped with automatic Picatinny rail designed for the installation of auxiliary equipment, two-way adjustable handle and butt.

With all the improvements in the mass of the machine will remain virtually unchanged - 3, 3 kilograms.

While the mass delivery of the AK-12 into the army too early. While the planned modernization of the AK-74M, which the military arsenals of the armed forces


Company "Sukhoi" transferred to the Ministry of Defense of Russia the first six series of multifunctional Su-35s, which will soon arrive to the location. According to the press service of "dry", the company has fulfilled its obligations under this type of aircraft in the framework of the state defense order for 2012.

The fact that the first six Su-35s will be delivered to the troops before the end of 2012, it became known in March this year. As the representative of the Russian Defence Ministry for the Air Force, Colonel Vladimir Drik, the planes were finishing testing Ahtubinsk test center.

In August 2009, the Russian Defense Ministry signed an agreement with the "dry" contract to supply 48 new fighter jets. Their delivery should be completed before the end of 2015, after which the military department may enter into another contract for the supply of an additional batch of Su-35s of the 48 machines. To date, the military received for testing three prototypes and nine serial fighter.

Su-35S, made its maiden flight in February 2008, is capable of speeds of up to 2, 5 thousand kilometers per hour and fly at a distance of up to 3, 4 thousand kilometers. Combat aircraft radius is 1, 6 thousand kilometers. The fighter is equipped with 30-mm cannon and 12 suspension points for missiles and bombs weighing a total of up to eight tons.

NPS project "Ash»

The latest multipurpose nuclear submarines of Project 885 "Ash" will be able to hit targets on the ground at a distance of about 1, 5, thousands of kilometers from the coast.

Significant place in the activities of the Navy this year took tests of new ships, submarines and weapons, and not only for the Russian fleet, but also for foreign customers. "In total, during the year we conducted 240 tests, including the successful launch of November 22 coastal missile complex" Bastion "at maximum range of weapons - more than 400 kilometers," - said Chirkov.

Cruise missiles "Caliber" and "Onyx" long-range torpedoes, missiles, torpedoes and mines are the main weapon of the nuclear submarine "Severodvinsk».

Submarine "Severodvinsk" was founded on the "Sevmash" in 1993 and became the lead ship of the project 855 "Ash", which envisages the construction of eight modern submarines for the Russian Navy. In September last year, the first time a submarine out to sea to sea trials. Earlier the head of the Defense Ministry to ensure the state defense order Vernigora Andrew told RIA Novosti that "Severodvinsk" will be adopted by the Navy in 2013.

Pistol "Black Swift»

Russian private company was presented to Arsenal Firearms semiautomatic 9mm pistol, equipped with a plastic frame, which is called "common swift." It meets all the most modern requirements. According to manufacturers, it is one of the best guns in its class due to the introduction of technological innovations. It is assumed that the "Swift" will replace the Makarov pistols.

"Black Swift" was developed over several months. Among the innovations that are applied in the gun, it should be noted the construction of the locking mechanism and a barrel, wherein the barrel runs linearly. The distance from the grip to the axis of the barrel is only 12 millimeters. Himself trunk rests on four sides on a kind of rails, so it does not rotate and does not warp when shooting. This minimizes recoil, increased rate.

Another innovation is the lack of gun safety lever. This security is provided by three gun carrying system, due to which the trigger is activated only in a certain position, and only when pressed with a finger. And another innovation - a design shop. The latch release is provided on both sides of the window inclined neck, which facilitates attaching the store.

Standard version gun involves the installation of a laser designator or a lantern grenade. Furthermore, it was created with a modification of the elongated barrel, the length of which is 30 centimeters. And also provides for modification of the assault gun under the 30-cartridge magazine.

KAMAZ-63968 "Typhoon»

Developing its start in 2010. The work involved the best engineers, and by the end of October this year, was presented the model sample of the new combat vehicle. On the basis of a large number of machines installed modules required to perform combat missions: to provide care, conduct biochemical and radiochemical intelligence, fire support. However, the main task of which is the responsibility of the car - is the transportation of personnel.

The machine is equipped with a powerful anti-bullet and mine ceramic armor that can withstand a blast of about 8 kilograms of TNT without loss of personnel. It also provides armored glass, which can withstand two rounds of large-caliber weapons, the distance between the places hit as high as 30 centimeters.

On the "Typhoon" mounted six-cylinder 450-horsepower engine YMZ, which makes it easy to move with great speed over rough terrain, boosting the ford, the depth of which is about 1 to 75 meters and climb the slope angle of more than thirty degrees. The car is also equipped with night vision devices and satellite navigation, along its perimeter installed video cameras.

The vehicle is provided hydropneumatic suspension, which is controlled from the driver's seat. Fixed compressor makes it possible to change the tire pressure in the range of 1-4, 5 atmospheres and keep it at a penetration of the wheel.

KAMAZ has three carrier axles. And thanks to the powerful engine, six-speed transfer case and automatic locking differentials "Typhoon" may be the real king of off-road.

The missile defense system S-500 "Triumphant-M»

Work is underway, aimed at creating a missile defense system S-500. This new generation of Russian missile and air defense systems, which is supposed to apply the separate tasks of aerodynamic destruction and ballistic missiles.

Currently, the preliminary design of the complex has been completed and carried out engineering design. This complex is intended to destroy the latest models of air attack weapons, which today is being developed in the world. Complete development planned by 2015. It is assumed that the system is able to solve problems of Buda, not only in stationary version, and will be nominated in the war zone that is most relevant at a particular time.

The missile complex "Topol-M»

This is the first of the missiles, which was created exclusively by Russian enterprises. Is charged with high hopes in the maintenance and preservation of the nuclear potential. This is a unique complex which is significantly superior to agility, alertness, vitality, efficiency defeat the previous samples.

The complex "Topol-M" - is a three-stage solid-fuel rocket monoblock, which is in the transport and launch container. The main advantage of the rocket are in the control system and guidance, which is installed on the complex. In addition, he is immune to the effects of an electromagnetic pulse, which occurs when a nuclear explosion. Moreover, the system has a "secret" tool that makes it invisible to the anti-missile systems. It is possible to replace the whole front section on multiple warheads that can carry three separate head. All this makes the missile invulnerable, because at the same time it is impossible to intercept the three warheads.

In a complex system used incomplete hanging that enables you to install a set, even on soft ground. And improved maneuverability and cross-launcher. The service life of the complex is 20 years.

Kurganets-25 and Boomerang

Since the first announcement of the program "Kurganets-25" and "Boomerang" timing of their implementation is practically not subjected to correction. The prototypes are still planned to send to the test at the beginning of next year. Then a couple of years will be used for finishing machines and preparation for mass production. The military are going to get the first cars on the platform "Boomerang" and "Kurganets-25" in the same 2013. Full compliance with these terms is possible only if the designers of "Kurgan" and "Military-industrial company" is not only aware of the existence cons of selected decisions, but also has dealt with them. Anyway, speaking with great precision about the prospects of the project can be only at the end of this year, when both organizations have finished the assembly of prototypes.

Anti-aircraft complex "Carapace-C1»

The Russian army in this year adopted a antiaircraft missile and gun system «shell-C1».

ZRPK «shell-C1" - the leader of the short-range air defense system. It embodies all the provisions of the developed and implemented "PCU" concept of building a universal short-range anti-aircraft complex that ensures its superiority over foreign counterparts. He became the missing link in the air defense system, with the introduction of the groups whose anti-aircraft provided their greatest efficiency.

Complex «shell-C1" is designed to provide air defense of small military and administrative and industrial facilities and areas, as well as to strengthen the air defense groups in repelling massive strikes. According to the company, «shell-C1" offers versatility, the ability to fire on the move and at the same time firing four goals and other qualities.

Range missile destruction at the complex up to 20 thousand meters, and height - up to 15 thousand meters. "Affected areas cannon armament: in range - 200 - 4000 meters in height - up to 3 thousand meters.
