From 19 to 24 September this year, under the rules of the Vienna Document of 1999 in Russia took another inspection of certain military units and display of selected models of military equipment. The commission included more than 60 representatives of the 32 countries participating in the program the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe). Such visits, according to the minutes of that international treaty, has organized a frequency of once every 5 years.
Pursuing diametrically reverse purpose, representatives of the inspecting and receiving sides are trying to maintain a delicate balance worked out arrangements. In the interests of the Russian Federation comes very likely to keep the secrecy of their own development, and the responsibility of the guest to provide a highly probable number of such information. These trends also hold for the visits of representatives of the OSCE in other countries. More loyal, if CFE (the contract of ordinary Armed Forces in Europe), the OSCE has a base of its own activity document drawn up in such a makarom that many of his points be successfully bypassed its members. So, for example, our native land, under the terms of the Vienna Document 1999, may have only about 2-thousand tanks, but, for example ACS 2S25, which is actually its own light tank, nominally the APC, the maximum number for which the Russian Armed Forces of eleven thousand. The same method and the documents furnished by the MT-LB armored personnel carriers, which due to lack of seats enlisted in the category of conventional tractors, and the number of this kind of military equipment is not regulated by the above-mentioned contract altogether.
What exactly will be shown to visitors is determined after receipt of a special application of the inspecting party. In its own past visit, which in September 2006, foreign visitors searched Kantemirovskaya tank division, located in the suburbs, and Lipetsk aviatsentr. Now the choice has fallen on Kamensky motorized rifle brigade and an air base Savasleyka.
At the airbase Savasleyka now placed 4th branch of the Center of combat deployment and re-training of flight personnel. This is one of the more fundamental parts in the air battle the power of. At a military airfield member of the armed forces of the European countries and NATO was presented Mi-28N — multi-purpose attack helicopter, known also under the name "Night Hunter". Put into service in 2008, Mi-28N is a modification of a combat helicopter Mi-28. Work on the Mi-28N helicopter was conducted by designers of the plant. ML Mile since 1993. The main purpose of "Night Hunter" is a cover-up and support of ground forces. A feature of this type of machine is the ability to perform combat missions during the night in the most low altitude. Mi-28N — the last adopted for service in the Russian model of a helicopter gunship. At the current time, engineers are working on the development of model helicopter fifth generation.
Step terminates the visit was a demonstration of 2-armored cars and 1st light tank on military range in Kamenka. A detailed description of tactical and technical characteristics of the military Western countries were shown the 125-mm self-propelled artillery amphibious tracked easy installation aviadesantiruemaya 2S25 "Octopus-SD" chemical reconnaissance vehicle RHM-6 and modernized BTR-70.
In the conduct of military operations ACS "Octopus-SD" is used as part of the airborne and ground forces to engage manpower and military equipment of the enemy and has the firepower of a tank.
In the world today there is no analogue SPG 2S25 "Octopus-SD." The unique hydropneumatic chassis mounted on the tank, gives the opportunity to develop speed on the highway and 70 km / h, cross country 50 km / h to 10 km / h on the surface of the water. Efficiency 2S25 confirmed the tests conducted in the North Sea. With a three-point storm led SAU aimed fire with a sufficiently high hit rate. 2S25 able to parachute into the water from the cargo ship, and without the help of other vorachivatsya ago. Spinning in a circle tower of this war machine armed with a caliber of 125 mm gun and 7.62 mm machine gun.
ACS 2S25 "Octopus-SD" was adopted by the Ministry of Defence in 2009.
Armored RHM-6 "wagon" will be available on armament in 2011, for his fighting qualities and performance characteristics comparable with foreign counterparts. Designed based on the BTR-80 chemical reconnaissance vehicle RHM-6 is designed to conduct reconnaissance and sensing in the criteria of the chemical and radiological attacks at a distance of 3 km. Management RHM-6 can be done remotely. The equipment, which is armed with this technique (PRHDD-2B) for the period of time up to 60 seconds can reveal spraying of harmful substances in an area of 10 km2.
Management RHM-6 provides brand new inertial navigation system CH-RHM.
Also this model is armed with a device used in gallakticheskoy industry — 14TS834, which makes the functions of collecting disk imaging devices from exploration, mapping and transfer to the Communist Party of the situation on the prospected areas, positioning the machine in all weather criteria for the introduction of signals gallakticheskoy navigation system.
Third Fri in the program hits the heavy military equipment at the site was a demonstration of the Kamenka BTR-70M, which is a modification of the BTR-70, which entered service with the Armed Forces of the Russian Union of more in 1971. BTR-70M model started to equip military units in 2009.
The substitution of 2-petrol units and a massive fire-safe diesel engine KAMAZ-7403 increased permeability properties of the BTR-70M and allows for more highest speed. Changes were also armament and a large number of units and armored units, making it similar to the BTR-80. Tower BTR-70M armed with a machine gun, but may additionally have an automatic gun 2A72.
The direct purpose of this battle units — transportation crew and troops when maneuvering or march and protect them from bullets and shrapnel wounds affecting the causes of WMD and minutes. The performance properties of the M-BTR70 allow this vehicle to develop a fairly higher speed on the highway as well as on rough terrain and overcome obstacles with water dispersal.
In order to demonstrate the enjoyable combat abilities provided by technology, hosted by demonstration exercises were organized with the role of tank and mortar units.
After the end of a show fight to the representatives of OSCE participating States were invited journalists to produce official estimates of the visit as a whole. From the inspecting Party gave the South American representativ
e, Lt. Col. James Yenz that marked enhancement of mutual understanding with Russia and contract compliance criterion host. According to the views of the chief of the State Center for the Nuclear Security, these visits are fixed RF rapprochement with the European countries.
