Also few rare photo from Directorate A facility (i guess).   Some of them translated:   Also, MP-5s if i see it right.

Somebody decided to mount optical sight from RPG-7V ("PGO-7V", 2.7x) on AK (both 5.45 and 7.62), like some of Soviet Army soldiers did in A-stan and find out how to use it and why people were doing th

> How are the work on "Ratnik-2" and "Sotnik" going (sort of like they are the lead developer for "Sotnik"), will we soon see prototypes?
   In fact, there will never be a Ratnik-2. There is Ratnik 1 (Barmitsa). Ratnik (which is Ratnik 2) and the Sotnik [Centurion] itself. According to the representative, Sotnik will not be a rework of Ratnik, but a new kit with new materials. Most likely, again according to the spokesman, it will have mine-resistant shoes, liquid armor and something new in the helmet. To make it light. But all this is still at the level of correspondence with the MoD, which is now forming the performance characteristics. Before the end of the year, they should decide.

   The reticle is located in the first focal plane, which ensures that the aiming line remains unchanged when the magnification is changed. The reticle image is scaled with the target image.

 

   The scope is available with one of three reticle types:
- BDC;
- "Fast Cross" type;
- "Hunting cross".

 

   The grid backlight has 6 brightness levels. The scope illumination can be quickly turned on or off at any brightness level. The battery is CR2032 type.

   The body of the sight is made of durable aluminum alloy, shockproof and waterproof. The fully sealed design with internal optical alignment ensures high reliability of the scope in various operating conditions.

   The mechanism of attachment to the weapon is quick-detachable, with an additional latch to prevent accidental opening. Fine adjustment allows re-installation of the sight on the weapon without moving the zero.
   The sight bracket is made in one piece with the sight body, and provides additional stability under shock loads.

   A bit more about this sight.

Quote

   The Steiner Optics Close Quarters Thermal (CQT) scope combines a 320 × 240 pixel microbolometer capable of detecting long wavelength (12 μm) infrared radiation and a collimator sight.

 

   Unusual Steiner CQT technology allows you to quickly identify targets and hit them with small arms in close combat. The sight operates in three thermal modes: contour, patrol and full. Contour mode is best used for daytime, full heat mode for complete darkness.

   Of the obvious disadvantages, it is worth paying attention to the price (about $ 10,000) and a significant weight (450 g). At the same time, the capabilities of the novelty are most fully revealed only at short distances.

   The Israeli firm Smart Shooter has completed the next stage of testing of a Light Remote-Controlled Weapon Station - LRCWS, called the Smash Hopper.

   After being mounted on a Toyota Hilux Plasan Reem 4×4 armored vehicle, the Smash Hopper hit several moving ground and air targets from a distance of over 300 meters.

   "The Smash Hopper module weighs about 15 kg and is a system that ensures that the first round of small arms hits a target without endangering the weapon operator.
   Smash Hopper is suitable for light vehicle mounting, provides 24/7 operation with automatic target detection."

   The system can be configured for perimeter defense, drone engagement, remote ambushes, and operations in challenging urban environments.
   The Smash Hopper is designed to work with the AR-15 / M4 or any other assault rifle and works in tandem with the Smart Shooter fire control system, which connects to the control panel via cable or wireless.
   The Smash Hopper comes in two flavors: the Smash Hopper and the more compact Smash Hopper Light.
