Under the Damascus seen tanks with thermal sights Viper


For the first time about this modernization of armored vehicles became known in the autumn of 2016. Many experts did not believe this information. But, as it turned out, the specialists of the Syrian Research Center still managed to create a thermal imaging sight. True, he is going from foreign components. Production is conducted in small batches.



“According to some reports, there are still significant reliability issues, but the Viper is much more efficient than the previously used TPN-3-49. So, the detection range is 4 km, recognition - 1,5-2 km. At the same time, it is possible to detect masked targets, as well as objects hidden behind smoke screens and dust clouds, ”the publication says.



Currently, the Viper sights are also installed on the upgraded T-55MB, which are actively involved in the battles.

      hi ...Welcome back.
      As stated in the comments, this scope is Syrian's own development, which is believed, however, with great difficulty. According to some reports, the thermal imaging sight has the name "Viper." Moreover, how it is connected with the main 1A40 sight remains completely incomprehensible. Nevertheless, after the appearance on the technique of the Syrian army KOEP "Sarab-1", nicknamed the "birdhouse", you can believe in the broadest possibilities of Assad scientists.

        Syrians follow the same path as people in the Donbass. They make weapons and are refined as they can in order to end this war faster.

    I agree with the opinion that in Syria it is necessary to finish. But, unfortunately, our potential opponents overseas also assume that further, having united and rebuilt the Iran / Syria tandem (with the assistance of the Russian Federation) will turn their attention to Libya and Afghanistan. And there, these things are all the sweetest - oil / gas fields (Libya) and drugs (Afghanistan)

      And accordingly they will spoil as soon as they can and anywhere. Therefore, in the near foreseeable future, the war in Syria will be difficult to end. Although I repeat - this is a very necessary matter.

      As for the "Viper" - it works and okay. The main thing is that the barmaeans are wet. The opinion that in this way Russia is losing the market for its own developments is offset by the fact that we still do not have all our tanks equipped with advanced developments.

      there (in Libya) there is another quite important resource (which is rarely mentioned) - natural underground water reservoirs. And there is a lot of it ... agriculture can be developed, which, under Gaddafi, began to be done.

        When Gaddafi was built a network of irrigation pipelines. The main pipes were more than 5 meters in diameter! This allowed even Libya to become an exporter to neighboring countries from an importer of wheat. Agricultural thanks to this water supply grew by leaps and bounds. For this construction, even the largest bulldozer in the world in Italy was ordered in a single copy, but the cunning pasta did not give it away.

    Special thanks to Rogozin: he stimulates the development of Syrian defense technologies.
