Watch out, stingrays! Turks disguise mines as sea creatures

24
Developers from the Turkish company Albayrak Savunma and the Black Sea Technical University started creating a new type of mobile sea mines. According to Defense News, new projectiles are planned to be made in the form of sea rays, which would be controlled by means of encrypted sonar signals. New development received the name WATTOZZ (from the Turkish. Vatoz - sea stingray).


Watch out, stingrays! Turks disguise mines as sea creatures


According to the developers, the robotic underwater drone looks almost indistinguishable from the real stingray. Thanks to the materials used, it cannot be detected using sonars and other tracking systems for underwater targets.

In this case, a group of fish-robots, attached to the bottom of the ship with the help of electronic magnets, can easily sink it when the built-in warhead is activated. Another purpose of the mechanical stingrays - observation and exploration. To this end, WATTOZZ is equipped with two cameras, as well as self-defense systems against marine life. The devices are controlled by sonar signals, similar to those emitted by underwater mammals. The built-in battery lasts for 12 hours of operation, the drone is driven by three special engines. If necessary, WATTOZZ can hibernate and then attack enemy ships and submarines, receiving the appropriate signal. The device is made of titanium and aluminum. Mina is able to move at speeds up to 5,5 node (about 10 kilometers per hour)

    The ramp is quite suitable for the region of probable military operations in Turkey .. But there are still hundreds of years of evolution to the Russian Poseidon ...

      And we need to disguise our torpedoes as dolphins.

        So this ... dolphins themselves do very well with diversionary work ...

          So living dolphins feel sorry, but no mechanical ones. Swims such a mech dolphin to the ship and broads fuck fuck.

          We once had it, but for a long time already.
          In the early 1990s, training for dolphins for military purposes was discontinued. In 2000, the press reported that dolphins from the Sevastopol Dolphinarium were sold to Iran.

            The idea is great. And inevitable. UAVs have long been disguised as birds. Underwater, too, will inevitably be disguised as fish and dolphins. And the mines are just not disguised as (just remember the English anti-tank disguised as a camel “pile” with the tracks of the tank caterpillar that moved over it). And now "active" mines are being developed, which, when the enemy approaches, will themselves chase him. So there is a lot of variety.
            I've noticed something else. Promising Russian aircraft carriers are doing with a springboard. And the superstructure above the deck is more massive than the American ones, since there is still a powerful radar there. Therefore, the silhouette of Russian and American aircraft carriers is different. So, in the Turkish video, it’s clearly not a Russian aircraft carrier that is being undermined, but the American CVN series (modern).

        So it was supposed to use something “from dolphins” in torpedoes! Scientists somehow decided that dolphins also develop a high speed in water thanks to the mucus that covers the dolphin’s body ... and they tried to create a polymer “mucus” so that the tank with it was placed in a dashboard (well, they wanted to “torment” the torpedo) .. .

      That's why I didn’t like the name Poseidon "! No. It would be necessary: ​​"Sperm whale", "Killer whale" and ... viduha (that is, disguise) corresponding ... good

        All names are good and Poseidon too, only vague doubts torment me regarding the Ottoman creation -

        - how are they going to ensure their secrecy, why the ramp is chosen as the basis, and not the turtle or dolphin, which look denser than the ramp and therefore can be crammed with a large volume of explosives, while the dolphin also gives speed to the ramp, and why we don’t hear about such creations from older and more advanced comrades than Turkey.

    Fig se. But they invented it cunningly.
    So you can also mask a small submarine!

    I imagined a whale in which the diver hears the sound of the pumps cooling the reactor. belay
    Such a lover of whale marine life swims up and from it one hears - "Kolya stop smoking pancake here!, You see oil all around!"

    Okay, now you can stoke the same aircraft carriers in the same slopes - the Turks will respond smile

    They came up with an interesting idea, did not suspect that the Turks were capable of this. But you that this system of skates floats so harmoniously and symmetrically immediately raises doubts about disguising as fish ...

    The video is awesome! laughing laughing
    I wonder what kind of "robots" class "stuck" "dropped" the speed of an aircraft carrier below 5,5 nodes? Or did the kraken sneak up? laughing laughing

    All this nonsense. Appearance can be created, material can be, there is no movement pattern of the ramp, at least not in this century.

    Knowing the Turkish hand-operated equipment not by hearsay, I’ll say right away this is a fake, but in general the idea is good, but unlike GDP, Erdogan’s are just cartoons.

    At the depths at which our Poseidons work, no stingrays are found ..... We do not need this masquerade, and most importantly, the stingray's form is not very flexible and has a huge frontal resistance, therefore, stupidity from beginning to end .... ... the Turks disappointed me ......
