    5 new innovations designed for Russia’s security forces

    Oct. 20-23 saw the 19th Interpolitech international exhibition of state security equipment, organized by the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Federal Security Service and the Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation. The combat capabilities of state-of-the-art arms and equipment were also demonstrated at the range in the town of Krasnoarmeisk near Moscow. RBTH has chosen a selection of the most interesting innovations from the exhibition.

    1. The Vykhlop silent ‘exhaust’: a large-caliber sniper rifle



    The 12.7-mm VKS anti-materiel sniper rifle, also known as the Vykhlop ("exhaust"), strikes different targets at a distance up to 650 yards (600 meters). Due to its large caliber, the weapon can penetrate even heavy body armor and soft-skinned vehicles.

    2. BS-103: an unmanned aircraft with vertical takeoff


    Meanwhile, the company Unmanned Systems showed off its vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) drone BS-103.

    The drone has two flight modes: "airplane" (horizontal) mode and hover mode (similarly to a quadcopter). This means launching such a drone requires neither a catapult nor tossing into the air by hand.



    The UAV (umanned aerial vehicle) is equipped with five brushless motors. In the hover, vertical takeoff and landing modes, four engines with vertical thrust operate, while a fifth, sustainer motor with a horizontal thrust also runs in horizontal flight. The drone can also be equipped with internal combustion engines, which significantly increases the time and distance of flight.

    As the BS-103's developer Sergei Alexandrov told RBTH, the drone can be used by oil and gas companies for monitoring oil and gas pipelines, by border guards for protecting and monitoring areas as well as by logistics companies to deliver small loads.


    3. Engineer: a menace to terrorists


    Visitors to Interpolitech 2015 were also shown a number of different dual-purpose robot systems; incidentally, the robot called Engineer was shown in action right in the exhibition hall.

    Produced by the company Servosila, Engineer is a small, all-weather robot for use both in civil applications (for cleaning up after technological disasters) and by the military, for example, to fight against terrorism or in urban combat.



    Engineer can be sent to remote places; it is suitable both for complex terrain and urban environment. Due to its caterpillars, it easily overcomes obstacles such as sidewalks and even ladders.

    The robot, which looks like a miniature tank without a turret, has an arm-like manipulator and is equipped with a laser scanner, a stereo vision system, odometry sensors and a video camera, which it can raise to a height of 4.25 feet (130 cm), which increases its vision range.

    Due to its devices, the machine can not only send three-dimensional data to the operator, but also build digital maps of its route and move independently, if contact with the operator is lost for some reason.

    4. Field office: laptops for the military

    In its Interpolitech booth space, the Russian company TS demonstrated its toughened computer equipment.

    The laptops and tablets were poured with water and strewn with sand as well as beaten with hammers, but the equipment continued to work.

    According to the developers, the computers are designed for use in extreme conditions, such as in the Arctic, in the desert, on the deck of a ship in a storm, and so on. The equipment works at temperatures from -58 to +131 Fahrenheit (-50 to +55 degrees Celsius), in the pouring rain, and even in a sandstorm.

    5. New personnel carriers for police

    The automobile plant Ural displayed the new Ural VV three-axle all-terrain vehicle, created specifically for Interior Ministry troops.



    Designed to transport personnel, the vehicle has a certain degree of protection from shrapnel, small-arms bullets and various kinds of improvised explosive devices and mines.

    If necessary, the crew can lock itself in and deliver fire from loopholes, as well as from two upper compartments.

    "The Ural-VV armored combat vehicle has entered service with the Internal Force of the Russian Ministry of the Interior, a source in defense industry told journalists on Thursday. "The Ural-VV vehicle has entered the Internal Force’s inventory. The beginning of its delivery is due in 2016," the source said. He added that the decision to adopt the Ural-VV for use had been made following the type’s successful tests involving preproduction vehicles. The early Ural-VVs are reported to have been provided to the Internal Force as far back as 2014.



    The Ural-VV armored combat vehicle is designed for the Internal Force of the Russian Ministry of the Interior as troop carrier. It offers enhanced protection of its occupants, cargo and key units from small-arms fire and landmines. The vehicle is a derivative of the popular Ural-4320 6x6 truck. It has a total weight of 17,300 kg and carries cargo weighing up to 3,000 kg. The vehicle can tow an 11,500-kg trailer. Its maximum speed stands at 90 km/h and its crew is 17 troops, the driver included. The perimeter and roof of its armored module have Class 5 protection, its transparency and frontal side Class 6 protection and its engine compartment Class 3 protection. The vehicle’s bottom protects from the blast of 2 kg of high explosives."

    VV (Troops of the Interior) leave the Ministry of the Interior (MVD) to become the National Guard reporting directly to the President. Meanwhile the Drug Enforcement (FKSN) and the Migration Services (FMS) are subordinated to the Ministry of the Interior... got all of that. Actually surprised the FSO (Guard Protection Service) wasn't merged in with the National Guard.

    They (SN) are part of the new National Guard. The SF troops that stayed with the MVD were the OMON and SOBR units which are police units anyway.

    During the Communist time there were no private security and alarm companies. After the change those Security services which had been part of the MVD, continued to be run by the MVD as Private Security services known as the FGUP. The business was obviously self sufficient financially and in co-ordination with the militia or police acted as additional eyes and ears for the MVD. A lot of their work would be for Federal, Regional and local government organizations, businesses and housing.

    The end result of this leaves the MVD as pretty much a pure Police Force of ~485,000 or less then 3.5 / 1,000. However this force is without SWAT or Riot units.

    The National Guard would be ~400,000 of which half would be paramilitary forces and the other half, a Security Guard Service.

    More research reveals more data in regards to the new force. It has not been completely determined yet or at least announced what units will be transferred into the National Guard but here are the prospective units. The announced authorized strength in 2015 of the Ministry of Interior (MVD) was 835,825 service personnel. The Migration Service (FMS) with ~18,000 service personnel and the Drug Enforcement Service (FSKN) with ~31,200 are being incorporated into the MVD to create a force of ~885,000 service people. Here are some units being mentioned as potential National Guard;

    Troops of the Interior (VV) ~170,000 personnel
    - 8 regional commands divided into 22 divisions and brigades. There are also 5 independent reaction divisions and brigades.

    - ON (light combat type) ~37,000 personnel in 28 units
    - SMM (military police type) ~34,000 personnel in 53 units
    - VOG (guard units) ~40,000 personnel in 55 units guarding around 110 sites of national security (mainly nuclear power plants,research and production facilities)
    - aviation ~100 aircraft and helicopters in 13 units
    - marine ~ 100 craft mostly guarding the waterways next to Nuclear Power Plants and closed cities (ZATO)

    Private Security Service (PSB or FGUP) ~238,000 personnel
    - Patrol Service ~125,000 personnel trained and equipped the same as regular police patrol officers.
    - Protection or Guard Service ~113,000 personnel guarding private or government owned facilities for payment. Includes Alarm services.
    - ~8,000 of these are in 5 Special Police Regiments serving in Chechnya presently under the control of the Chechen MVD (known to some as Kadyrov's Private Army)
    - Privately Owned Security Service Oversight (ie those Privately owned and Corporate Security Services)

    Police Special Units ~34,400 personnel
    - OMON ~24,200 personnel in 121 units. Two of these are national reaction units.
    - SOBR ~5,200 personnel in 87 units. One of these is a national reaction unit.
    - FSKN (Drug Enforcement) SWAT type forces ~3,000 personnel
    - GAI (Traffic Police) SWAT type forces ~ 300 personnel
    - Restricted Areas SWAT type forces ~500 personnel
    - Witness Protection Service SWAT type forces ~700 personnel
    - Chemical Weapons and Destruction SWAT type forces ~500 personnel
    - Aviation Unit assigned to National Special Police Reaction Units ~10 aircraft and helicopters

    Others
    Police Aviation Units ~35 with 80 or so aircraft mostly helicopters
    Police Harbor or Marine Units with ~200 small vessels

    Overview
    A division similar to this would effectively divide the MVD in two almost equal forces of a National Police with ~442,000 personnel and a National Guard with ~443,000 personnel.

    The 20th at Saratov was called "Vega", but is apparently no more and is replaced by the 35th "Rus" stationed in Simferopol, Crimea.

    The unit assigned to the ODON is called the 604th Center and is made up of what was originally two SN units, the 1st and the 8th. It's the national reaction force.

    There is also a unit at Stavropol called the 30th Special Regiment "Svyatogor" for which I have not yet identified it's exact role.
