    Here's an update, it has a 200 km range and the new system is a product of a transfer of technology from China to Belarus, where the new MLRS uses the same missile as one used by the Chinese A200 MLRS:

    "President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, has visited Precision Electromechanical Plantlocated in the Dzerzhinsk region, where the cutting edge domestic multiple launch rocket system «Polonez» was demonstrated. The head of state was also updated on the efforts to localize the production of combat missiles. The «Polonez» multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) was first demonstrated on May 9, during the parade in Minsk. The Polonez missiles have a range of 200 km. Today only several states have missile systems with such characteristics. The «Polonez» multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) using a China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC) 200 km-range A200 guided rocket.



    According to a Chinese report, the two sides agreed in 2013 to create the new MLR system, which could enter Belarusian army service in 2016. The same report noted a 2012 agreement between China and Belarus to develop a new surface-to-air missile system."

    Main battle tanks "Vityaz" will defend Belarus

    Post  arturas on Thu Jan 28, 2016 9:52 am

    Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko reaffirmed Belarus' peaceful policy and resolution to defend national interests. The head of state made the statement at a session of the Security Council while discussing the Military Doctrine of Belarus on January 22. Alexander Lukashenko stressed that there are no direct military threats to Belarus.

    Alexander Lukashenko said that the analysis of the present-day situation requires adjustments to the country's national security approaches, including in the military sector.
    In his words, last year the Defence Minister was tasked to explore all options of possible response with the use of force to contemporary threats taking into account the long-term forecast and reflect this in the new edition of the Military Doctrine, which was accomplished.

    The military-political leadership of the country increased its activity in strengthening the combat power of the Belarusian army. The main efforts of the Ministry of Defence are focused on purchasing new weapons and military equipment, as well as on the modernization of existing ones.
    And this process went far beyond the priorities outlined last year: the Air Force and Air Defense Forces, MTR and the development of UAVs. In order to increase the combat capabilities of units, the Ministry of Defence purchased new aircraft, upgraded radar systems and communications systems.

    Now it is time for the tanks’ modernization. According to the plans of the military leadership of Belarus, specialists have already started to implement a phased modernization of all T-72B that are in service. T-72B – the main battle tank of the Belarusian army, numbers more than 400 tanks. Their modernization will allow bringing tank units to a new level.
    Last year the 140th Repair Plant, one of the main enterprises of Belarus’ Goskomvoenprom, demonstrated its own program of deep modernization of T-72B - "Vityaz". Obviously, the modernization of the Belarusian tanks will be made in Belarus - it is much cheaper and more reliable. Moreover, it is known that the first tanks "Vityaz" left the assembly line, and were tested in the units in the course of combat training. They showed a very high efficiency.

    What's new in the Belarusian version of T-72?
    Belarusian defense industry has made fundamental changes in the fire control system. It is, first of all, the installation of modern fire control system with multi-channel gunner's sight "Sosna-U", automatic target tracking, PNK-4S-01 observation and sighting system. These changes allow the gunner to search and defeat the target using the cannon and coaxial machine gun in the "Double" regime at any time, in any weather.
    In addition, the tank is enhanced by an anti-aircraft machine gun that allows to defeat more effectively the air and ground targets from the crew compartment of the tank at a distance of up to 1600 meters.
    Combat capability and survivability of tank is significantly increased due to the use of new complex of active protection "Barrier" and dynamic protection "Knife".

    "Vityaz" is also equipped with new digital radio stations R-181-50VU "Rhapsody" and navigation system (GLONASS/GPS). The ergonomic characteristics are also improved.
    At the same time the modernization of the tanks is only partial, primarily due to the fact, that changes have not touched the engine, automatic loader and gun.
    A somewhat different story is in using dynamic protection system "Knife" and active protection system "Barrier" of the Ukrainian production for "Vityaz". It may seem illogical, that Minsk, the closest ally of Moscow, uses the Ukrainian military technology against the background of extremely tense relations between Russia and Ukraine.

    Probably, this approach was due to the overpriced Russian dynamic protection "Relic". At the same time, according to Ukrainian experts, Belarus-Ukrainian contract for the supply of dynamic protection involves subsequent transferring of production technology, which will significantly improve the capacity of the domestic defense industry and enhance its export potential.
    As for the "Barrier", that was criticized by Russian experts, it should be said that the American experts who conducted their own study of the system, refuted their point of view. Moreover, Russia itself is developing a system of active protection "Afghanit", which is based on the same principles as the "Barrier".

    It becomes clear that the military leadership of Belarus, taking the decision to modernize tanks T-72B, came primarily from the economic opportunities of the country, leaving aside political ambitions.

    "The Republic of Belarus will consider importing the advanced S-400 (NATO reporting name: SA-21 Growler) surface-to-air missile and Iskander (SS-26 Stone) tactical ballistic missile systems from Russia in 2020 at the earliest, Igor Lotenkov, Belarusian deputy defense minister for armament, told journalists. "As for the S-400 Triumph SAM system and Iskander missile system, their acquisition will be pondered after 2020. By the time, there may emerge more effective weapons systems featuring improved characteristics," the SB. Belarus Today daily quoted the deputy defense minister as saying.

    According to Lotenkov, the bulk of the overhaul of the Russia-supplied S-300 (SA-10 Grumble) SAM systems has been completed. "One battalion has been delivered to Belarus and is ready for the operation as part of the 377th SAM Regiment in Polotsk. Another [battalion set of S-300s] has been overhauled and is due any time soon," he said. "Even though the S-300 is not the latest system, it meets our needs in full. The Armed forces can use it for decades in the air defense role."



    He also said the Belarusian Armed Forces would receive Mil Mi-8MTV-5 (Hip) transport/combat helicopters this year. The deputy defense minister reminded that Belarus and Russia had sealed a deal on 12 aircraft of the type designed to oust the current Mi-8s (Hip), which service life has expired. The country also is expected another batch of Yakovlev Yak-130 (Mitten) combat trainers and the fourth battery of Tor-M2 (SA-15 Gauntlet) SAM system. Lotenkov said Belarus would conduct the final phase of the trials of the indigenous Polonez multiple-l
    aunch rocket system with a range of about 200 km. "Based on the outcome of the tests, we are going to add a Polonez MLSR battalion to the 336th Rocket Artillery Brigade by September," the deputy defense minister said."

    does anyone have a list of small arms in use by Belarus? including anti tank weapons, mortars, manpads, ZSU-23-2 etc? can only find vehicles and aircraft etc. I know most will be Soviet and Russian just wanted to know what. I know they have shershan ATGW.

    Its a shame the 2T stalker didnt come into service pretty cool combat recce vehicle, problem with Belarus is funds, they just dont spend much on their armed forces.

    Very similar to what Russians use.

    Makarov is standard service issued pistol

    Standard assault rifles are mix of AK74, AK74M, AKS-74M and AK-74U, occasionally older models like AKM, AKMS can be spotted

    Machine gun RPK-74/RPK-74M/RPKS in reserve mostly RPD and RPK

    Then standard mix of specialised firearms like PKM, NSV, DShK, Dragunov SVD

    Special units same as in Russia use often VSS Vintorez, VSK-94, 9A-91

    Main AT weapon of Belarus are still RPG7 and SPG-9M, however they do operate ATGMs too Metis, Konkurs and Fagot which are to be gradually replaced with their domestic Shershen

    AGS-17 automatic grenade launcher is also in service


    When its about AA guns i know they for sure operate ZSU-23-2, Tunguska and Shilka

    Igla MANPADs from what i am aware last Strela M2s were destroyed some years ago

    Mortars i for sure know about 2S12 Sani and most likely 2B14 Podnos too

    They also use RPO-A Shmel, RPG29, RPG26 and similar AT weapons as they were inherited from USSR

    It's not funds, it's they're the Belarus. Minotor Service knew the 2T was never going to sell well, since they proposed it to the damn Russian armed forces. The good point was the frontal arc. Russians should have tried to cut a deal, but otherwise the platform for the 2T was already an antiquity.
