    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.

    Belorussian light grenade launcher complex MM-60

    According to Nikolai Novichkov in the article "Belarus develops new lightweight rocket launcher" in the magazine "Jane's Defense Weekly", the 8th international exhibition of weapons and military equipment MILEX-2017, held in Minsk (Belarus) from May 20 to 22, 2017, OOO "BSVT-VV", part of the structure of GVTUP "Belspetsvneshtekhnika", presented the lightweight grenade launcher MM-60 in the caliber of 60 mm. The representative of LLC "BSVT-VV" reported that this year tests of a 60-mm shot should be started, and tests of the complex as a whole are planned to begin in 2018.

    Hmmm... a 21St C RPG-16 (which used a 57mm rocket that did not stick out the end of the rocket tube like the RPG-7 rockets do).

    Ovod-R brings precision engagement to RPG-7

    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".
