    I've heard about the Fauna ECM complex for years, however this is the first time I've seen it in action.

    This optics. Are they lasers? laser warning devices? jammers?

    Saw it in a vid on Syria, when some Russian Spetsnaz got some journalists tagging along with a convoy out of a hotspot.

    If i understand correctly they are optical sensors to detect firing of weaponry and possibly incoming projectiles.
    I don't know what spectrum etc.

    But the vehicle can deploy aerosol smokescreens which has been demonstrated.

    Well, so it got optical sensors and laser detectors to detect attacks and jammers and flare launchers to defend vehicles from attacks. Nice. Like the self-defense systems they put close to SAM´s, just mobile.

    Gazetchik-E. I wonder if armored vehicles could have a modernized version (with APS) hitched behind them on a trailer?

    Not really, that is Gazetchik-E, which basically protects major radars and SAM sites from anti radiation missile attack by emitting radar signals to distract the incoming anti radiation missile from the actual radar it is connected with.

    This system clearly uses both smoke and incendiary burning material to defeat optical and IR guided weapons by blocking visual light and creating multiple IR signals all around the target area so individual targets can't be differentiated from the background noise.

    Hope the enemy appreciates this because the alternative is a high power laser to blind EO sensors and telescopic sights...

    Gazetchik uses also chaff/flare launchers and Infauna uses jammers. Not much difference.
