Which non russian tank has image processing build in their TIS?
AFAIK, there isn't a single tank of western that uses image processing, the americans are stuck with their image filteration of two sepctrums to highlight objects in predetermined and prerendered IR spectrum to show up aka BHOT and WHOT, no image processing there. The Leopard 2 has neither image processing, do not know about Leclerc, they have been the among the best when it comes to FLIR/TIS but no info on Leclerc the only tank i can imagine that has image processing that would be Merkawa other than that there is no tank with that technology, hell there is only so far one non russian attack helicopter that has image processing that is the AH-1Z Viper and next one is ARH-129 italian modified with Hoplite 3 FLIR of Rafael.
The T-14 and even the T-90MS catapult themselfs out of any comparision capability for their FCS and image processing, because they have no rivals in that regard.
I was just quote Officer from one of episode "Serving to Russia" where guys which wasn't(i must admit) driving Armata or Kurganec, or Bumerang , but BMP3 and T-90 had such kind of let say ,suggestions,
I know that T-90SM have state of the art hunter killer sight, excellent Night vision and very good thermal vision, but does they systems are fully Russian production in time when UVZ was work on T-90SM they have contract whit two french producers Tales and Sagem, Contract which today aren't valid any more.(at least for a "wider audience" ) that is my problem, or should i say some kind of wondering, Commander of VDV is very satisfied whit all sights on new BMD-M4.... Second , thing it is obvious, that Russian makers of Russian optic-electronic make big step progress,and i think that true leader is KRET corporation, which right now have so many great looking and modern solutions for Avionics and Cockpits screens, about REB gadgets do not need to talk about , because they already shown they high class and ultimate performance and that can be seen, also on BMP Dragoon, which have brand new modules for Optic-electronic sights, On Version whit Gun of 57mm, also is brand new and different looking modules , But no body of you can denial quality of Night and Thermal vision which we can see, that produce FLIR on F35, (i do not talk about whole plane but just about his Night and Thermal Sight, And for example same kind of Sights and quality of picture can't produce systems on Mi-28 Night Hunter or Ka-52, OK i can't said , does it those pictures of Bridge whit cars which all can see on you tube like PR material for F-35, does it that pictures have after enhanced sharpness in editing studio etc, but if that are "untouched" and post enhanced during editing, Than i can freely say that such quality of night and Thermal vision, on those distance, i wasn't seen on neither one Russian Plane, Helicopter, armored Vehicle (except Armata, because simply i have no chance to see from proper angle and distance how look picture on Armata monitors, for example is well known fact that whole module on Ka-52 for different kind of sights, wasn't have proper calibration in sense of elevation and azimuth, and that was assemble error (i believe that until know that problem is fixed) but on one of presentation of Navy version of Ka-52 that particular Ka.52 had fully different, much smaller by volume optic-electronic gadget under the nose, they even was said that every Navy variant of Ka-52 will have those module, which, by words of some of engineers have much better resolution,stabilization and contrast of picture, simply because on the sea especially when pilots search for does it target or something else between line of sky and sea, module which is mounted on BBC version simply aren't capable to make distinction between those two during the heavy clouded sky, and during the any of low visibility condition, which can be extremely dangerous. But after , was started whit making more navy version, but that new Module is simply vanished, and to me very odd, no body was ask what was happened,after very harsh words towards "old" module on sea condition.Does it that Module actually was foreign made in, which now can be buy any more (O.K that isn't some big number of navy Ka-52, but if Egypt are purchased Ka-52 for now they Mistral, that is Big Number of Highly capable strike helicopter, probably best one buy all capability, except if story is true, BBC variant have limitation on the sea because already mentioned reasons)
Greetings and Long Live to Russia. I'm big fan, but sometimes i'm pissed off because some time simply i can't understand why some parts of Russian Military Industrial Complex , simply aren't Given equal and undertaken task, and then either deliver something that has nothing to do with the requirements of the Army, or delayed for years, and just spend-steal money.
