    Nice...


    Загорский оптико-механический завод (ЗОМЗ) холдинга «Швабе» представил два новых изделия − бинокль большого увеличения со стабилизацией изображения БСФ 20x50 и малогабаритный бинокль БПФ 8x20.

    The Zagorsky Optical and Mechanical Plant (ZOMZ) of the Shvabe holding presented two new products − a large-magnification binoculars with image stabilization BSF 20x50 and a small-sized binoculars FPF 8x20.

    For those not familiar with the terms for optics the first number is the magnification and the second number is the width of the lens you point at what you are looking at, so 20 x 50 means each of the two lenses pointed at the target are 50mm across and the magnification is 20x, while the smaller binoculars are 8x20 which means 20mm objective lenses and 8x magnification.

    The larger the magnification the closer everything appears... it does not make things appear bigger, it makes them appear closer so with a 20x magnification an object that is 100m away appears to be 5m away.

    The more powerful the magnification the harder they are to hold steady but the 20x binoculars have autostabilisation system built in to make them easier to use.

    If you divide the objective lens by the magnification you get the exit pupil diameter... the exit pupil diameter is the diameter of the focused image.

    Normal human pupils are about 5mm but in the dark can be 7mm so exit pupil diameters of less than this makes the focused image hard to see... it appears wobbly and in and out of focus.

    The smaller the objective lens the lighter and more compact the binoculars are, but it means they let in less light and are less useful in low light or dark conditions.

    Big objective lenses give a better view at any distance, but make the binoculars bigger and heavier and more expensive.

    Interesting development, reminds me of how the Soviets had bombers on the Island of Socotra just a few years after the UK left Aden!

    In the Black Sea, submarines of the Russian Navy practiced a missile strike on the ships of a conditional enemy. 

    In accordance with the combat training plan in the Black Sea, the submarines of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Navy "Stary Oskol" and "Veliky Novgorod" practiced a missile strike on the ships of a conditional enemy. For targeting, the submarines used data transmitted to them from the Ka-27PL helicopter and the Be-12 aircraft performing the task of monitoring the situation in the water area in combat conditions.

    This is reported by the press service of the Southern Military District.

    After receiving the coordinates of the targets, the submarines made electronic missile launches at targets that were simulated by a group of Russian small anti-submarine ships and auxiliary vessels.

    Thus, submarines, surface ships and vessels, as well as naval aviation were involved in the exercises.

    Not only Russian servicemen are being trained in the Black Sea, but also the military of a number of other countries. In particular, today five ships of the North Atlantic Alliance entered the territorial waters of Georgia, as reported by the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of this state. In this ship group there were not only ships of the Black Sea countries. Two of them were flying the flags of Italy and Spain. The other three ships belong to Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey.

    Not really news but the remembrance of a true Russian hero, who was 21 at the time.

    I've seen a tv serie about an Arleigh Burke, a recent one, where they just put a piece of aluminium (the same as the one you can find in your kitchen) of 2x2m on the pieer behind the ship and set sail in "stealth" mode. The Kirov following the ship was seeing on its radar the aluminium while the Burke was moving unseen, even if it was like 15km away. The guy said the Burke is a stealth ship.

    Very funny when you see this image how their propaganda is so biased lol1 .

    The PF ship "Admiral Tributs" did not allow the US Navy destroyer to violate the Russian state border

    Another rusty bucket?
    Oh no, its same Laughing
    Interesting thing: according to the Russian sources, Muricans were pretending to be in the middle of an air operation, that would not allow changing the course - that is why the chopper is back there, and spoiling the air.

    Scanned this pic from an old aviation magazine of an Su-33 taking off from the Kuznetsov during a Mediterranean deployment in the 90's. The picture was taken from a nosy P-3 Orion and the Su-33 had to take evasive action immediately after takeoff to avoid a collision. The aircraft in question seems to be a development model in a non standard paint job fitted out with a recce pod.
