   Stolen from otvaga. Patent pics for soft bag ERA on Budget Cuts 3M and for ERA modules on turret sides.








   Turret side ERA modules have interesting moment - ERA blocks spaced and arranged in such way that if horizontally-moving projectile hit edge of one ERA plate, it will encounter edge of another one. Only central parts of ERA are "alone" vs projectile. And if fired from noticeable elevation or at a downward angle, 2 or more ERA plates will be in the way.

   Hull side add-on ERA in soft bags doesn't have this arrangement. ERA plates have big spacers between them.

Marker robot project continues - now FPI/NPO-AT works on coordinated group actions.

   MOSCOW, December 13. / TASS /. Specialists of the Foundation for Advanced Studies (FPI) are working on the coordinated in time and space of the autonomous movement of the group of robotic platforms "Marker". While moving along the route, robots must avoid obstacles themselves and interact with each other, the press service of the fund told TASS. 


   "The solution of the tasks set in the project will create the technologies necessary for the development of robotic platforms capable of independently planning and performing actions in an uncertain environment and functioning as part of a group in solving problems requiring group management and interaction," the FPI said.


   They clarified that at the moment they are working out the interaction of heterogeneous groups of robotic platforms "Marker" (on a wheeled and tracked chassis) when moving along a pre-programmed route. A group of robots must maneuver when meeting static and dynamic obstacles, as well as change the format of the formation, without deviating from the route assignment.


   The robotic platform "Marker" is a joint project of the National Center for the Development of Technologies and Basic Elements of Robotics FPI and NPO Android Technology (developer of the anthropomorphic robot "Fedor"). It is assumed that this combat robot will become the basis for working out the joint interaction of ground robots, unmanned aircraft and special forces. "Marker" is positioned as a constructor for creating models of warfare in the future.


   In December 2020, the Marker combat robot has successfully passed driving trials in a fully autonomous mode in winter conditions. In the fall of 2021, a security robot patrolled the Vostochny cosmodrome and worked in both radio-controlled and autonomous modes.

   TSAMTO, 12 January. Thirty modern tanks with improved combat characteristics T-72B3M will be delivered to the Guards Tank Division of the Central Military District (TsVO) by the end of this year. 

I guess T-72B3M is official for modernised and uparmored Budget cuts 3.
