Airborne Troops are testing the thermal sight "Shahin"

In Pskov, on the basis of the airborne assault division of the Airborne Forces (Airborne Troops), military tests of the Shahin thermal imaging sight, which is based on an uncooled microbolometric matrix, are carried out. "Shahin" is integrated into the automated control system (ACS) by the troops and equipped with a video output, which allows using a helmet-mounted monitor for firing from the shelter.


The electronic processing unit of the thermal sight allows you to introduce ballistics for 7 types weapons, and also introduce vertical and horizontal corrections in the course of firing. This allows you to bring a weapon to a normal battle on one type and then use "Shaheen" on other types of weapons. From the shooter, all you need to do is enter the appropriate ballistics electronically.

During the tests at the site with the use of “Shahin”, firing of all types of different-sized small arms, which is in service with air assault (parachute) and special units of the Airborne Forces, is conducted.

The tests conducted in the Airborne Forces confirm the high tactical and technical characteristics of the sight, as well as its compliance with the requirements of modern equipment for the Russian Armed Forces personnel.

The implementation of the recommendations received as a result of military trial operation will enable the Airborne Forces, as well as other types and types of the Russian Armed Forces to get a thermal sight that meets modern requirements and is not inferior in its characteristics to world standards.

Thermal sights are the most complex electronic devices and an integral part of modern equipment. Modern equipment "soldiers of the future" are composed of thermal imaging sight.

Thermal imaging technology allows a soldier to see a target in the dark, in smoke or very dense fog. The use of such devices makes it possible to timely detect and identify potential threats, and subsequently destroy the target from a safe distance.

As told to the journalists, Lieutenant-General V.A. Shamanov, commander of the Airborne Forces, in 2012, the troops planned to deliver modern BMD, multipurpose armored personnel carriers, as well as the latest communications equipment, weapon control systems and automated troop control systems at the tactical level.

In addition to equipping the troops with new modern models of military equipment and weapons, in 2012, it is also planned to overhaul and upgrade approximately 10% of the main types of weapons and military equipment of military units and airborne units.

“All deliveries of military equipment and weapons have been agreed with the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia and the central military authorities of the Ministry of Defense, which are responsible for purchasing and supplying them to the troops,” said the commander of the Airborne Forces.

    I am glad that this system is being tested and will go to the military in the future. The purchase and modernization of weapons is one of many arguments that allows the army to be modern and mobile.

    Sorry for the naive question, but is this overall crap in size not two to three times larger than similar western samples? Will you have to bathe with it when mounting on weapons, carrying and transporting, servicing, etc.? Just a question ...

      More, but not significantly, when comparing military sights with military, not civilian. AN / PAS-13 C range 600 m weight 1,4 kg our tighter range will be even easier.

        Yes, and the most engraving he is like a Felin from the French outfit, an integrvan in estu plus has the ability to fire from cover if you certainly have a helmet-mounted display, but Amer’s can’t.

          american all uncooled winked

          By and large, they were ten years behind the Pindos.
          They have long been selling their old designs to the public.



          happy that all the same made their own. I really hope that we catch up and overtake the Pindos. Now this is the country's security.

          Quote: Alexey Prikazchikov
          Of course, you have a helmet-mounted display, but Amerov’s cannot.

          all sights are based on television systems. everyone has access to the helmet. only Pindos can also broadcast the Internet. for the Pentagon generals to watch the show.
          Don't underestimate sworn friends. otherwise it may end sadly.

    aktanir,
    will have to, of course, take a steam bath. However, you’ll agree that it’s better than NSPU, then WMD, if you competently throw it :) The main thing is to bring it to mind and not to stop improving in this direction, so that the product does not go to the left, as it has already happened more than once — there are samples in single units in the troops and the basmachs already have wholesale deliveries ...

        I would not say that the military will be more expensive, but there will be problems at customs for sure, because of the military purpose of the sight ... And so "Buzzard" costs from 500 rubles to 000 rubles, the same "Specter IR" $ 1.
        And so the shahin himself and his analogues:

      If there is enough money, then you can buy yourself ... Western ones through Ibei, the problem can only be in transportation across the border of the Russian Federation. We (in the Russian Federation) have a price tag for Western samples of 3-5 more than the price in the West.

            it’s all about Germany (rare-earth metal) .... they make a TP matrix from it that can perceive a wave of the infrared spectrum and filter out the spectrum of visible radiation. So, all over the world, germanium is mined within a few kilograms ... if I am not mistaken, it is very small. Hence the price .... winked

    Dimensions, okay, such sights are not particularly small. I’m more interested in why he is set so high? For example, NATO dress up on the standard bar and actually merge with the barrel, but here it is raised cool.
