"Sapsan-Konvoy": Shoigu announced the dispatch of some models of equipment and weapons to Syria

Certain samples of equipment and weapons presented to us at the Army-2020 forum will be sent for testing to the Syrian Arab Republic. This was stated by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu following the examination of the exposition of the International Military-Technical Forum.


In particular, after participating in the Russian exercises Kavkaz-2020, the Sapsan-Konvoy mobile multifunctional complex for countering unmanned aerial vehicles of the Avtomatika concern will definitely go to Syria. The complex is designed to counter drones by detecting and jamming channels of global navigation satellite systems.

We have a need to develop such tools. If you have it ready for testing, let's test it at the Kavkaz-2020 strategic command-staff exercises. And if he positively recommends himself, we will send him to Syria.

- the minister said.

Shoigu stressed that developers need to reduce the time from the start of development to the adoption of new models for service.

What other samples of new equipment and weapons presented at the forum will go to Syria for testing is not reported, but with a high probability it can be assumed that armored vehicles will go there, in particular, new armored vehicles. The option is not excluded with new drones, as well as other anti-UAV systems.

Note that earlier Shoigu stated that many samples of equipment and weapons, put into service in recent years, have been "tested" in Syria. Also, according to him, the Ministry of Defense refused to purchase some weapons that did not show the necessary characteristics in combat conditions.

    Maybe I misunderstand something, but why announce it?

      So PR is one, it is everywhere. Russian weapons will go to a foreign customer with the emblem: "tested in battle."

        It is not important. The main thing is:
        many samples of equipment and weapons that have been put into service in recent years have been "tested" in Syria. Also, according to him, the Ministry of Defense refused to purchase some weapons that did not show the necessary characteristics in combat conditions.

        And this is really important! hi

        This is true, but it would be more correct, from my point of view, to first try it out in a real battle, and then PR ...

        Russian weapons will go to a foreign customer with the emblem: "tested in battle."

      The fact that a technician is sent to Syria for testing is Openly's secret. And Shoigu did not add anything new.

    The most interesting thing to evaluate in Syria is the effectiveness of the 57mm Derivation both for air targets and ground targets.
    The carapace has many weak points.

    ".... developers need to reduce the time from the beginning of development to the adoption of new models for service ...." That's it! good Otherwise, it seems that it is profitable for "developers" to waste time, improve, modernize, etc. money is flowing, the budget is "sawed" ... negative

    I think this is a signal to our "allies"
    selling drones
    right and left like tomatoes,
    and by themselves using them in Syria.
