    "Russian Ministry of Defence is interested in developing mobile nuclear stations. Draft’ll be shown by end of 2015 and first station built in 2020, reported military-informant.com. “Defense Minister gave instructions to prepare a pilot model of autonomous power station is in the interests of the Defence Ministry. The project has already started and is in the process of research (R & D), “- said Konyushko. The new mobile nuclear station may be consisted of heavy trailers, one of which contained a reactor, another the gas turbine, one which contained a miniaturized control room, and one to house the plant’s sizable staff."

    This always made sense to me. I believe it was planmed even during soviet times. But these mobile nuke plants would provide all the needed energy, plus some, for all their needs.

    Yeah they did. One was even built. Makes sense yeah but idk... i wouldnt like to get into car accident with this thing.





    "In 1957 the Ministry of Medium Machine Building of the USSR (read: Ministry of Atomic Energy) issued an ordered to the Kirov factory for a nuclear power station on a mobile chassis allowing for power generations in remote parts of the USSR. This vehicle received the name TES-3 (Transportable Nuclear Power System) along with the GABTU designation Object 27. Head designer Joseph Kotin settled for an enlarged T-10 chassis with 9 road wheels instead of the usual 7. Due to the large size and weight of the power system 4 chassis had to be linked. The reactor produced 1.5 megawatts of energy. In 1961 in the TES-3 was put into service with two different reactors being built and tested successfully during in the early '60s. However in 1965 it was taken out of general service. However the TES-3 was sent to the Kamchatka peninsula where it served for several decades. The TES-3 served as the basis for other vehicles of this type in the 1980s."

    TSNIITOCHMASH set to develop telescopic shells for autocannons/artillery:

    - TSNIITOCHMASH recently successfully conducted preliminary tests of a new 120-mm self-propelled artillery "Zauralets-D." On what other projects in the field of artillery Institute works?

    - We are thinking about developing a telescopic shot for small-caliber guns. By the way, on this problem for a long time are specialists in different countries. Enough serious scientific advance in this area has in our country, we develop it. In contrast to the unitary shots, telephoto shot himself in a shell hidden in the sleeve. Firstly, it increases the rate of charge, and secondly, saves space, allowing increase ammunition.

    TSNIITOCHMASH: a sample of a new gun for the Defense Ministry will be ready soon

    Russian Military Holds Large-Scale Anti-Terrorist Drills in Amur Region

    Anti-terrorism units in Russia's Eastern Military District have conducted large-scale exercises to repel terrorist attacks in the Amur Region, the district's spokesman said Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Describing the script for the exercise, Col. Alexander Gordeev said, "a conventional armed bandit group attacked a military unit to seize the storage of ammunition and weaponry. As a result of the use of grenades by the conventional terrorists during the assault on the military unit, fire broke out in one of the checkpoints.".

    According to Gordeev, anti-terrorist units blocked terrorists and opened fire. After having eliminated the so-called "conventional gang," the fire brigade garrison extinguished a fire.

    About a dozen automobiles and light-armored military vehicles, and some 200 soldiers participated in the exercises.

    Russia to Develop New Armored Vehicle Evacuation Equipment by 2019

    Next year’s plans include developing reconnaissance vehicles, unified evacuation vehicles based on the Tornado truck, as well as tracked evacuation and repair vehicles.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – New machines to evacuate motor and armored vehicles from the battlefield will enter into service in Russia by 2019, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Gen. Dmitry Bulgakov said Friday.

    "We expect to complete the development of new evacuation means of armored and motor vehicles in the next three to four years," Bulgakov said at an Armed Forces materiel and technical support assembly of military department heads.

    Bulgakov said next year’s plans include developing reconnaissance vehicles, unified evacuation vehicles based on the Tornado truck, as well as tracked evacuation and repair vehicles.

    "We are currently developing tactical and technical requirements and specifications to carry out development projects for this technology," he added.

    The Russian Armed Forces are undergoing a $325-billion rearmament program, including the upgrading of new armored vehicles and automotive equipment.

    "More than ten Strela-10MN mobile air defense missile systems have arrived for air defense units of the Western Military District’s motor rifle brigade based in the Leningrad Region in northwest Russia, district spokesman Oleg Kochetkov said on Monday, Nov. 30, 2015."The air defense units are currently learning to operate the new systems. They will conduct their first live-firing exercises already in the next training year," he said.

    It was reported earlier that the Eastern Military District’s air defense units had received ten Strela-10MN systems in the autumn of 2015. This year, systems of this type have arrived for units stationed in south Russia. The Strela-10 air defense missile system is designed to defend units in various combat situations and on the march from attack and reconnaissance aircraft diving and flying at low and ultralow altitudes. The Strela-10M4 is an advanced version of the Strela-10 system, which is able to search for and eliminate targets 24 hours a day in limited visibility. The air defense missile system provides for an autonomous and automatic sector-wide search for targets.



    The Strela-10M4 air defense missile system is armed with eight 9M333/9M37M/9M37MD surface-to-air missiles. The system has a maximum range of 5,000 meters. It can hit targets flying at a speed of 420 m/s at a maximum altitude of 3,500 meters. The system is capable of accomplishing combat tasks during jamming. The missile reloading time is about 10 minutes. The system’s chassis is an adapted version of the MTLB tracked prime mover. Unlike the baseline Strela-10, the Strela-10M4 system needs only minor debugging, which makes the process of its upgrade much easier."

    Oplot-MO is probably more suitable for protecting against forces from Andromeda; no earthly threat would really require this.

    Probably the same as the AK-630 naval gun turrets... mount this on top of a tank turret with some sort of detection system... when an incoming threat is detected turn the gun onto the threat and open fire... I suspect the gatling is chosen to enable the most rounds downrange as quickly as possible in high density bursts.
