Central Scientific – Research Institute for Precision Machine Engineering (TsNIITochMash) of Rostec State Corporation has launched the mass production of unified precision weaponry defense systems for advanced military vehicles.
The system is designed to protect the TOS-2 heavy flamethrower system, the PRP-5 reconnaissance vehicle, and the Zavet-D automated artillery control systems.
It incorporates attack warning sensors, control and indication equipment, launching devices and obscurant ordnance to protect vehicles from precision weaponry with laser, optical, thermal and radar targeting.
“When the enemy attacks, the system detects the threat and ‘hides’ the equipment behind a veil of combined jamming. Thanks to this, the munition loses contact with the target, goes off the attacking course or continues to fly ‘blind’ in inertial mode without precise targeting,” said Bekhan Ozdoyev, Industrial Director of the Armaments, Ammunitions and Special Chemicals Cluster of Rostec.
“Tests have shown that the system is capable of protecting equipment during combat and on the march against anti-tank missiles, as well as against aerial attacks by precision aviation weapons.”
The company has experience in the field of optical-electronic defenses of military equipment against precision weaponry, manufacturing protection systems for the Iskander operational-tactical missile system, the PRP-4A mobile reconnaissance unit and other combat vehicles.
