    Belarusian armored reconnaissance vehicle "Cayman" will go into service

    It should be noted that the first prototype (running mock-up) of the Cayman was rebuilt from BRDM-2, but now the 140th plant's management claims that the Cayman serial armored vehicles are completely new vehicles, including the armored hull.

    Ovod-R brings precision engagement to RPG-7
    Miroslav Gyürösi, Bratislava - IHS Jane's International Defence Review
    10 April 2017 Here:
    http://www.janes.com/article/69437/ovod-r-brings-precision-engagement-to-rpg-7

    Minsk, Belarus-based Scientific Research and Production Centre has developed a new grenade launcher that is based on the RPG-7.

    The Ovod-R has a design that sees the original PGO-7V3 optical sight replaced by the new PD-7 smart sight, along with a laser rangefinder and optional NV/A-1 night vision attachment.

    The PD-7 is designed to provide target detection and precision targeting, and features an optical channel, integrated laser rangefinder, ballistic computer, and movable aiming mark. The ballistic computer can account for six types of grenade and offers a field-of-view (FoV) of 17° and a 3x magnification. The LRF operates at ranges between 50 m and 1,500 m. The unit weighs 2 kg and is powered by 2 AA batteries that provide up to 8 hours of operation.

    The PD-7 introduces a high level of automation in the target engagement cycle, providing the shooter with an aim point visible with the sight.

    In generating an aim point the ballistic computer accounts for the type of grenade, firing range, temperature, atmospheric pressure, target velocity, and wind speed.

    The unit has a modern power system and can optionally be fitted with an NV/A-1 quick release attachment, which has no impact on the performance and supports operations in poor weather conditions and visibility.

    The NV/A-1 can use Gen 2+, Gen 3, or Gen 3+ image intensification tubes and has a FoV of at least 16.5°. It weighs 0.55 kg and is powered by a single AA battery. It is designed to operate at temperatures ranging from -40° to 55°C and has 1x magnification.

    Ovod-R measures 950 mm in length and weighs around 6.3 kg without the sights. It has a rate of fire of up to six shots per minutes and can operate in temperatures ranging from -40° to 65°C and relative humidity of not more than 95% (at 25°C).

    MILEX 2017: BSVT unveils new airborne active jamming system

    James Bingham, Minsk - IHS Jane's International Defence Review
    23 May 2017 Here:
    http://www.janes.com/article/70692/milex-2017-bsvt-unveils-new-airborne-active-jamming-system

    Belarus' Belspetsvneshtechnika (BSVT) has developed an active jamming pod for use on fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft.

    The system - which was displayed at the MILEX 2017 exhibition in Minsk - is claimed to be capable of creating false targets, delaying detection, disrupting radar lock-on, and assisting lock break using single and multiple active jamming countermeasures.

    The Veresk ('Heather') jammer is designed to counter hostile weapon control radars and radio frequency (RF) seekers mounted on anti-aircraft missiles. The system comprises two 80 kg pods fitted with one on either side of the aircraft; these can be mounted to standard Russian-origin weapon rails, directly above weapons that can be released from underneath the pod. Additionally a cockpit control system and control apparatus are used to link the two pods.

    The pod has an internal threat library to compare received signals against; this is capable of expansion through software upgrades. These include aircraft and air-defence systems. The former include Western and Eastern aircraft types, including the Eurofighter, F-22, Mirage-2000 from the former, and the MiG-29, MiG-31, Su-27, and Su-30 from the latter. Additionally, a range of air-to-air missiles (AAM) can also be jammed, including the AIM-120 AMRAAM, AIM-7 Sparrow, MICA EM, Meteor, R-27, R-33, R-37, R-77, and RVV-AE.

    Additionally, the pod can jam the radar systems of surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems. These include the 2K22 Tunguska, 9K37 Buk, 9K330 Tor, Patriot, S-300B, and S-300P. Furthermore, the RF seeker-based missiles of these and various other systems can be jammed, including the MM-104 of the Patriot, the 9M82/3 of the S-300B, and the 5B55 of the S-300P.

    The jamming pod operates in the G, H, I, and J bands, with a maximum transmitter power of 40 dBm and a receiver sensitivity of between -65 and -55 dBm. Jamming sectors are 45° in azimuth and 30° in elevation in front and behind the aircraft.

    Belarus develops new lightweight rocket launcher
    Nikolai Novichkov, Minsk - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
    25 May 2017
    Here: http://www.janes.com/article/70765/belarus-develops-new-lightweight-rocket-launcher

    Belarusian company BSVT-VV is developing a new multipurpose rocket launcher called the MM-60, a representative of the company told Jane's at the MILEX 2017 exhibition in Minsk.

    "Having analysed recent conflicts, the world market, and potential customers' requirements, we have decided that a portable rocket launcher with a weight of 4-5 kg is the most demanded and highly sought option," the official said. "The launcher being developed has a calibre of 60 mm, a weight of approximately 4 kg without sighting system, and a full weight of 5 kg," he added.

    According to the BSVT-VV source, the new system allows the precise elimination of targets at a range of up to 500 m through the use of an advanced fire control unit that drastically reduces the impact of the so-called 'human factor'.

    "It can destroy various types of targets, including personnel, buildings, and armoured vehicles," the specialist pointed out.

    The new system comprises a disposable rocket launcher and an external sighting system, namely either an optical sight, a night-vision device, or a thermal imager.

    "The weapon is fitted with a multipurpose warhead that combines high-explosive, fragmentation and high-explosive anti-tank lethal effects, said the BSVT-VV official, claiming that it "can engage almost all types of combat vehicles on the battlefield".

    He added that "the ballistic specifications of the system are planned to be tested this year, while the trials are scheduled for 2018".

    Shooting of the modified Belarussian-Chinese multiple-launch rocket system "Polonaise" for 300 km

    As reported by the Ministry of Defense of Belarus, on October 26, 2017 on the territory of the Gomel region of the republic, in the framework of the shooting tests, successful launches of the upgraded version of the MLRS "Polonaise" were successfully conducted.

    Excellent results of combat shooting confirmed the unique capabilities of this weapon with a new long-range missile. The flight route of the rocket was calculated over uninhabited and sparsely populated areas of the country and was corrected throughout its length.

    The Belarusian arms business: new deals and old collisions

    On 14 November, key Belarusian arms exporter Beltech Export signed a deal with the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The Belarusian firm has agreed to maintain and modernise Emirati radars. This means that Minsk has successfully entered a new market, as it has never sold air defence-related products or services to Arab monarchies before.

    This news, along with news of further remarkable international contracts entered into by Minsk this autumn, illustrates the silent evolution of the Belarusian defence industries. They have not only succeeded in developing new products – anti-tank weapons, rockets, missiles, armoured vehicles and others – and started selling them. They are also establishing cooperation with major foreign defence firms like the Chinese Long March aerospace corporation or the Turkish Roketsan missile firm. Such actions illustrate a promising development toward building autonomous national military industries and making the Belarusian state more economically viable.

    Arms and friendship

    The latest Belarusian deal – assessed at $15.7m – with the UAE military at the Dubai Airshow in November was widely seen as a coup for Minsk. The Dubai–based Khaleej Times has even listed it among the major contracts concluded at the Dubai Airshow 2017. After all, Belarus had participated in the airshow for the first time, yet Arab countries of the Persian Gulf were seen reluctantly buying non-Western defence products and services.

    In addition, this February, Beltech Export won a contract worth some $14.4m to supply the Emiratis with spare parts, repair services and technical assistance for its Russian-manufactured BMP-3 armoured vehicles. Minsk not only won the contract over Russian arms firms, but the Belarusian offer has political implications, as well. After all, the UAE would currently prefer to avoid working with Russia yet it needs parts and support for its BMP-3s deployed in the Saudi-led intervention in Yemen.

    Belarusian defence firms, and the state agencies responsible for them, have been regularly meeting their Emirati counterparts for around two decades. The latest conference of the defence industry officials from the two countries took place on 15–16 October. Belarusian president Lukashenka also paid a visit to the UAE between 25 October and 6 November, ostensibly to promote trade between the two countries, including trade in military equipment.

    These contacts seem to have borne fruit. Moscow-based Nezavisimaya Gazeta reported that last year Minsk Wheel Tractor Plant (MZKT) successfully received an order for tank transporters without any tender. The delivery was due this year yet no details on the contract have yet been made publicly available. The MZKT has been selling such equipment to the UAE since the early 2000s.

    Minsk also relies on arms deals to advance relations with Middle Eastern countries. It therefore came as no surprise that in 2013 Raman Halouchanka, the deputy chairman of the Belarusian state military industrial committee, was appointed as the Belarusian ambassador to the UAE.

    Forthcoming breakthrough in relations with Turkey?

    Some unprecedented results have also been achieved in relations with Turkey. Şuay Alpay, Turkey’s deputy defence minister, paid a visit to Belarus from 23 to 26 October. The Belarusian media has kept silent on the content of these negotiations. However, Turkish daily Yeni Ufuk reported that the Turkish defence official had expressed his satisfaction with the cooperation between Turkish and Belarusian companies on “rifle sights, inertial navigation systems for howitzers, electro-optic equipment, avionics, satellite cameras and land vehicles”.

    Indeed, he brought to Belarus a large delegation which included not only state military industries officials, but also managers of leading Turkish arms firms. Among them were Aselsan (radios, defence electronic), Roketsan (rockets, missiles, satellites), BMC (trucks and tactical vehicles), MKEK (ammunition and various weapons systems). Although Minsk and Ankara first signed an agreement on defence industrial cooperation in 1998, their cooperation effectively started in the late 2000s to coincide with Turkish president Erdoğan’s launch of his assertive foreign policy.

    At the same time as starting new cooperation projects, the Belarusian government has worked to advance most of its old partnerships, most importantly the partnership with China. The President of China’s leading Aerospace Long-March International Trade Co., Shi Kelu, came to Minsk on 23 October. Minsk has for many years worked with Beijing in the aerospace arena, even choosing to launch its satellite with Chinese and not Russian help. The Belarusian government has also started its missile programme with China’s assistance after being denied new missile systems by the Kremlin.

    Belarusian equipment begins to neutralise Russian products

    The business and political interests of Minsk and Moscow collide in the most explicit way in former Soviet nations, especially in terms of relations between Belarus and Azerbaijan. On 8–10 October, Minsk welcomed Azerbaijani defence minister Zakir Hasanov. A military expert close to the Azerbaijani defence ministry Yaşar Aydəmirov told several Azerbaijani media outlets on 13 October that Baku should purchase Belarusian-made Palanez multiple-launch rocket systems. According to him, given Azerbaijan’s specific geographic and other advantages, Palanez systems would serve as an adequate response to Russian-made Iskanders deployed by Armenia.

    Belarusian military technical cooperation with Central Asia reveals the same tendencies for entering new markets despite Moscow’s disapproval. A case in point is the recent move towards cooperation with Uzbekistan: a country which severed most of its ties with Belarus in the early 2000s. On 4 October, Moscow-based Kommersant daily revealed that the Belarusian 558th Aircraft repairs plant began the overhaul of four Su-25, close air support aircraft and four MiG–29, fighter jets owned by Uzbekistan.


    Image: vpk.gov.by

    Moreover, there are reports that Belarusian firms are to receive contracts for the overhaul of another eight aeroplanes of this type. The 558th Aircraft repairs plant, based in the Belarusian city of Baranavichy, has signed the contract with Uzbekistan despite the fact that the latter had negotiated with the Russians concerning the overhaul of its aircraft in the spring of this year. Kommersant quoted a source from the Russian defence industries as saying that this deal between Minsk and Tashkent has caused “some consternation” in the Russian arms industry.

    Uzbekistan is not the only post-Soviet country which has begun to choose Belarusian firms. From 24 to 26 October, the Commander of the air defence forces of Kyrgyzstan, Kylychbek Aydaraliev, also visited Belarus to discuss the possible overhaul and repairs of Kyrgyzstani aircraft, helicopters and air defence equipment in Belarus.

    Minsk has to constantly take into account the Kremlin in doing arms business as Moscow dislikes the recent successes of its ally in diversifying its international contacts. Russian right–wing Regnum news agency published a commentary entitled “Mission impossible: Belarus seeks an alternative to Russia for its defence industries” on 14 November. Therefore, although Minsk hardly considers the development of its defence industries in cooperation with non-Russian partners or sales to new markets as a move aimed against Russia, the Russian establishment now sees such deals in exactly those terms.

    Yet the Belarusian government is forced to act in this way in order to survive both politically and economically. Not only because Minsk would become a Russian satellite otherwise, but because the Kremlin is actively substituting Belarusian defence products and continues to insist that Minsk must sell its defence firms to Russia lest they go bankrupt without Russian support. So, Minsk has endeavoured to seek and find its own solutions: the examples above serve as irrefutable proof of that.

    interesting points to note from the article

    Minsk-based KB Radar could export its electronic warfare systems Groza-S and Optima-B, while the Barysau-based 140th Tank Repair Plant delivered its light-armoured vehicles, Kaiman and V-1, not only to the Belarusian army but also to an undisclosed African nation.


    In addition to replacing the remaining foreign components in the Palanez rockets, Zas’ announced that designers were developing a new, Belarusian missile for the Soviet-designed Buk surface-to-air missile (SAM) system. Minsk believes that with the introduction of a new missile it can make the SAM system fit-for-purpose again.

    According to circumstantial evidence published in Belarusian media, it could be retro-fitted Soviet-designed air-to-air missile types R-60 and R-73 that Belarusian designers intend to use in a new version of the Buk SAM system. First, Belarusian company Belspetsvneshtechnika has modernised these missiles to extend their lifetime and efficiency. Moreoever, it has designed new modifications, R-60BM and R-73BM, to be launched also from land-based SAM systems.

    The Belarusian armed forces paraded new types of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) during the country’s 3 July Independence Day parade.

    Shown for the first time were Burevestnik-MB fixed-wing unmanned combat air vehicles (UCAVs), which were carried by MAZ-6317-family trucks.

    The Burevestnik-MB UCAV features a twin-boom design and has a range of flight of up to 290 km, a maximum take-off weight (MTOW) of 400 kg, and an endurance of up to 10 hours. The vehicle is powered by a piston engine that produces a cruise speed of 120–150 km/h and a maximum speed of 220 km/h.

    The UCAV flies at a height of 10,499 ft (3,200 m), has a ceiling of 16,404 ft, and carries a payload of 60 kg. It is fitted with two loitering munitions, each of which is powered by a piston engine. The smaller munition carries a payload of 10 kg, including a guidance system and a warhead, and has a range of flight of 30–40 km and a maximum speed of 200 km/h. It can be replaced by S-8-family 80 mm unguided rockets.

    During the parade, the Burevestnik-MBs were shown with the Busel-MB reconnaissance UAV. The Busel-MB has a MTOW of 10 kg and an endurance of up to two hours and is fitted with a TV/infrared camera. The UAV is powered by two electric engines that produce a speed of 60–120 km/h and a range of 50 km. The Busel-MB UAV has a ceiling of up to 16,400 ft. It is fitted with a combined GPS/GLONASS navigation system coupled to an autopilot. The UAV is launched by a catapult.

    Belarus develops air defense missile system to fight small-size drones


    The new system’s weapons are mounted on the tracked chassis, which enables it to move confidently across terrain with different types of soil

    MINSK, April 22. /TASS/. Belarus has developed a new air defense missile system dubbed TRIO to fight small-size drones, the republic’s State Military and Industrial Committee said on Monday.

    "The new surface-to-air missile system developed by specialists of BSVT - New Technologies has been created to provide air defense for military and industrial facilities, land troops’ units and formations, and also to strike small-size air targets, including unmanned aerial vehicles," the committee said.

    The TRIO system comes as a response to the rapidly developing sphere of small-size drones in the world, considering that "a number of existing air defense systems are unable to fight them efficiently," the company explained.

    The specialists developed the new system using the modernized combat vehicle of the 9K35 Strela-10 short-range missile system and the ZSU-23-4 Shilka self-propelled surface-to-air missile complex. They also added the Berserk robotized machine-gun system based on quick-firing aerial guns.

    "The TRIO’s guns supplement each other, which allows it to efficiently destroy small-size air targets of various types, including mini-drones," the developer company said.

    The new system’s weapons are mounted on the tracked chassis, which enables it to move confidently across terrain with different types of soil. As its specific feature, the new air defense system features an information and computer complex that allows making the operation of a team of a platoon (battery) command post and its combat control fully automated. The system’s radar can carry out an all-round search for air targets in real time within the angles of site ranging from minus 7 to plus 70 degrees while the round-the-clock optical-electronic station is capable of spotting and tracking targets in the passive mode at a range of 20 km.

    The developers have also adapted the TRIO for firing modernized air-to-air airborne missiles capable of striking targets with a dimension of no less than 30 x 30 cm. The robotized machine-gun module with a firing range of up to 500 m and the firing rate of 12,000 rounds per minute is also designed to strike small-size drones.

    The Belarusian specialists have called the TRIO air defense missile system "a relatively cheap complex with high combat potential." The new system will be demonstrated at the Milex-2019 arms show in Minsk in May.

    am i correct in thinking that this is three separate systems with a central command system, so one vehicle is SA-13, another shilka, and the machine unit? or did they take components from all three and combine on one vehicle as i havent seen any pictures

    they would just be better and cheaper to just make an upgraded ZSU-23-4M1 or an upgraded version of Zu-23-2-zom-1 the later can be fitted with strela-10 or Manpads and then just mount it on a MT-LB and your sorted no need to waste money again on prototypes that will never see production. its sad to see Belarus and Serbia do such things, better to do joint projects together and get funding from rich middle eastern countries its a win win situation for all parties involved and the equipment actually makes it into production

    The 9P140MB combat vehicle 9P140MB of the Belarusian modernized Uragan-M multiple launch rocket system at the MILEX-2019 exposition in Minsk, 05/15/2019 (c) tut.by, performed on the MAZ-631705 chassis with a 6x6 wheel formula.

    The 9th international exhibition of armament and military equipment MILEX-2019, which took place in Minsk from May 15 to 18, 2019, presented the modern 220-mm rocket system of the 9K57 “Uragan” salvage system, which received the designation “Uragan-M”. The 9P140MB combat vehicle of the Uragan-M, a modernized MLRS, is made on the MAZ-631705 car chassis with a 6x6 wheel arrangement and a two-row cab, which has a 16-barrel Uragan launcher rearranged from the old 9P140 combat vehicles on the ZIL-135LM (8x8) chassis. The new combat vehicle is equipped with a modern communication system.

    After the collapse of the USSR, the armed forces of Belarus received 87 9P140 combat vehicles of the 9K57 Uragan system, 39 of which were part of the 1199th rocket artillery regiment of the 28th Red Banner Army stationed in Baranovichi (Brest region), and another 48 were stored at the 1533rd storage base for weapons and equipment of the Belarusian Military District (Krupki, Minsk Region). In 2009, according to well-known data, Belarus supplied nine of the 9P140 Eritrea combat vehicles.

    Now in the land forces of Belarus, the MLRS Uragan are equipped with the 427th jet artillery regiment of the North-Western operational command (Lepel, Vitebsk region) and the 1199th mixed artillery regiment of the Western operational command (redeployed to Brest). Earlier, Belarus stated in the exchange of data on the CFE Treaty the presence of 72 military vehicles 9P140, although apparently about half of them are still in storage.

    According to the developers, the OKB TSP for 17 years of work has firmly occupied its niche in the weapon market. The main activities of the company is the development of new types of weapons, a deep modernization of existing models.

    One example of the work of the OKB TSP on weapons modernization is the modernization of the Buk air defense missile system to the level of Buk-MB. It embodies the main achievements of the enterprise - all the equipment has been transferred to a new element base using digital and processor technologies. But at the same time, the Buk-MB air defense missile system is not very different in characteristics from the Buk-M1 air defense missile system. "Buk-MB" was acquired by the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan and demonstrated at a military parade in 2013. It was reported that he had a Russian ZUR 9M317E.

    The accumulated experience allowed the developers of the OKB TSP to proceed to the creation of a completely new sample of Buk-MB-3. It is based on the MZKT-692250 wheeled chassis; a completely new radar with a phased antenna array has been developed, which increases the capabilities of the complex. A new optical-electronic target detection and tracking system has been installed, including a laser rangefinder, a thermal imager and an optical channel for detecting and tracking targets. In pursuance of the order of the Commander-in-Chief, work is underway to create a new rocket for this complex, and in the near future, OKB TSP are planning tests. The developers emphasize that the ZRK presented at the exhibition is an entirely Belarusian development.
