Anti-air thread: Everything that goes up must come down, and we'll help you go down

Looks more like a muzzle velocity radar to me, most muzzle programming devices are coils to maximise the magnetic field they produce, the brake would cause problems with that in this offset block.

Also, do they even have 57mm rounds which would benefit from such a system?

   On August 21, 2018, in the Patriot military patriotic park in Kubinka, the next International Military Technical Forum "Army-2018" opens. Among other things, JSC "Design Bureau of Precision Engineering named after A.E. Nodelman "(part of the JSC NPO "High-Precision Complexes" of the State Corporation "Rostekh") for the first time publicly demonstrates the combat vehicle of the Sosna short-range anti-aircraft missile system with anti-aircraft guided missiles 9M340 Sosna-R with laser beam guidance system.

5 km height, 10 km range.

Sosna, very serious missile system. Completely immune to every kind of jamming, and for most aircraft, the first sign that it is under attack, is the detonation of the warhead. Even if the aircraft has missile launch warning system, the only thing the pilot can do, is jettison weapons and try to outmaneuver the missile, which is very difficult.
