The Biden administration is pledging not to test destructive ground-launched anti-satellite missiles, a novel if narrow promise on the international stage, and is calling on other nations to follow suit to ensure the safety of the heavens.

MAMBA system (SAMP/T) at Capul Midia Romania :

 

 

The system fire the Aster 30 missile with a range of up to 50 km (100 km against non manoeuvring targets). Guidance is provided by the Thales X-band Arabel radar up to 60-80km depending on the sources (and up to 120 km when focusing beams). One radar can control up to 4 launchers (8 missiles each). The primary role of the system is to serve as a semi-static defense for airbases against aircraft and missiles (including short range ballistic missiles).

   From old days - MD-PS SHORAD on Vodnik chassis. PS in the name means "increased stealth", AFAIK this thing was supposed to use only optical systems to detect targets. If you pay attention, that radar-looking device on top have 4 big optical lenses covering 360 degrees.

More about that system - optical target searching station is called Phenix

Ground based 40mm RapidFire mounted on the same chassis than the Caesar NG 6x6 :

Will possibly be used to accompany artillery battery while local airspace monitoring could be provided by accompanying Ground Master 60 :

ARX 30 (same that could be seen on the roof of the EMBT) coupled with an anti-UAV jamming rifle :

In the same vein the now (almost) standard Hornet RCWS turret found on the Griffon mounting a 40 mm GL with an airburst charge :

 

ESY-22-Hornet_05.jpg

The turret replace the smoke launchers with a radar. With an effective range of only 400m the utility of such a system even against microdrones is, in my opinion, dubious though experimentations have already been conducted (video below).

Finally a Serval VBMR-L with 2 mistrals mounted on the roof :

If it could replace the last VLRA Mistral (where the operator is badly exposed) it would be great.

"

The US Army’s rapid capabilities office plans to deliver its first combat laser to Stryker units in next few weeks and is moving ahead with a project to mount a laser weapon on another vehicle, according to the office’s director.

Speaking at the Space and Missile Defense Symposium in Huntsville, Ala., Lt. Gen. Neil Thurgood, head of the Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office, said today the first battery of Directed Energy-Maneuver Short-Range Air Defense (DE M-SHORAD) will go to an air defense battery at Fort Sill, Okla. in the next 45 days."

Such system would actually be great for Sosna and 2S38 Derivatsiya-PVO 57-mm SPAAG. Would actually make them useful.

 

But hey Russian   MoD is run by clowns and furniture salesmen.
