Defense Ministry doubled orders for inflatable equipment

The Russian Defense Ministry and the leading enterprises-developers of military equipment in 2016 r have increased the purchases of means of imitation and disguise of weapons almost 2 times, reports Interfax a message from the head of the marketing and sales of military products of the Rusbal company, Aleksey Komarov.


Defense Ministry doubled orders for inflatable equipment


Today, almost the entire range of products manufactured by the company is ordered. These are mock-ups of aircraft, military-type land equipment tanks,
missile systems, said Komarov.

According to him, “in 2017, the order for the supply of camouflage and imitation tools will increase, and in the whole range of products manufactured by the company,” said the representative of Rusbala.

He stressed that "now a completely new technique is being created to disguise and imitate engineering weapons on the most advanced scientific, technical and technological basis."

In 2017, the company will continue research and development work on promising masking and imitation techniques. Such work is carried out on an ongoing basis with funding commissioned by leading enterprises - developers of equipment and weapons, or commissioned by the Ministry of Defense,
Komarov added.

It is reported that "a pneumatic beacon is a frame covered with an airtight shell that imitates samples of military equipment with a high degree of detail." In the production of layouts using conventional sewing technology. On tailoring a tank, for example, it takes an average of a day's 3.

“Each pneumatic model of military equipment contains a shell, thermal and radar simulators, a power unit, a fan and other parts. The composition of the layouts may also include elements of the rigid frame. All models are transported by road, sea and air without restrictions - the mass of one model, depending on the type, ranges from 30 to 100 kg, ”said the company.

Earlier, the Defense Ministry reported that “to disorient the enemy’s reconnaissance, the deployment of imitation tools — inflatable pneumatic models of various weapons”, including airplanes, C-300 complexes, tanks and ballistic missile launchers, is practiced.

              That's right, there is nothing original. But this is an urgent need. When I served in air defense in 1973-75, in addition to our current position, we still had a false position. So: at this false position were structures from logs and boards, vaguely reminiscent of launchers and radar stations. And much attention was paid to this position: it was necessary to patch rotten boards and logs, and in the summer the whole position was regularly cut over. But now with inflatable complexes, it’s much easier to mislead the enemy. Especially if all this inflatable technique is constantly being improved. In general: this is the right thing, enemy intelligence must always try to leave "with the nose."

        It will be original when, on the border with sprat-eaters, this technique is put up. I think that this will be enough so that all of Estonia's captivity stretches. And Yatina got nervous.

        Of course, not bad. Just dummies + disguise dramatically reduce the loss of real. A good example is the war against Yugoslavia. After almost two months of bombing, it turned out that the Yugoslavs lost either two or four tanks in Kosovo ... against the background of more than a hundred declared by NATO.

          The advertised efficiency of Americans & Co cannot be trusted at all, perhaps in years, information similar to the truth will begin to leak out.
          But here's what bothers me: is it a planned replacement of old equipment or preparation for something more serious.

      The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and leading enterprises developing military equipment almost doubled their purchases of imitation and camouflage weapons in 2016

      And rightly so! First we’ll inflate dummies, and then a potential enemy!
      Modern dummies are not boards and logs of the “Restless economy” level and therefore they cost money, but in which case it will pay off with time and saved equipment!

      So how should it be?
      For example, Saturn mastered the production of ship turbines. Can't you scream too?
      And why is it impossible for Rusbal, like everyone else, to advertise its products?

      Regarding inflatable tanks, in Russia (not even in Ukraine), there was already hysteria about eight years ago. Like under Serdyukov, money is enough only for breadboard models, and the whole army of Tryndets. If then it looked like a shame, now it’s like the right distraction.

        There is no money, but we are holding on. Inflatable toys costing a passenger car will not protect us. Moreover, when aerial reconnaissance scanning in different spectra can easily distinguish a fake.

          Do not tell the details? In which spectrum, for example, does a tank painted with green paint differ from a layout painted with the same paint?

                  Just comrade Moore was right. And radio reflectors and heat simulators in such a thing are.
                  I found it right away, but saw it in more detail somewhere.

          Modern layouts, that you would know, not only look realistic from the outside. But they are also equipped with devices that imitate the technique in the electromagnetic, infrared and other ranges of the spectrum. Or do you think Russian scientists and military are complete idiots who think that with the help of an inflatable layout they can deceive modern intelligence tools? Those days ended when, with the help of straw and wood, it was possible to mislead the enemy. 21 century in the yard. For example, a tank simulator on a radar. Simple corner reflector, simple and cheap.

      There is an appropriate retrofit that gives out both a thermal footprint and other physical milking, so that in all ranges it looks like the present.

    Friends gathered after the demobilization, they remember the army, they shared who served where. Well, Micah, he’s a tanker, - "The armor is strong and our tanks are fast!" Vasek returned from the fleet, the one like, "God is with us and the St. Andrew flag." Kolyan is cool, he was in the Airborne Forces, “Nobody but us” ... But Seryoga is silent.
    - Gray, what are you doing?
    - Yes, for some reason, I don’t know, boys, as you say ... In short, while you were all like that, I blew it all year! "Blow there, - from there ... oh!" Nipple system ...
