Russian intelligence officers use the Ironia optoelectronic complex to detect the enemy and aim artillery

The Russian military in the NVO zone is actively using the Ironiya optical-electronic surveillance system to detect the enemy, aim at the target and record the strikes. This was told by the soldiers of the special forces of the Western Military District, fighting in the Kupyansk direction.


The Ironia optical-electronic surveillance system is capable of detecting a person at a distance of 3 km, and equipment at a distance of 7 km, therefore it is often used for ambushes, which has been repeatedly reported. The complex is produced in two versions - mobile on the basis of the Tiger armored car and portable. With the help of "Irony" fighters observe the enemy and collect information about the terrain, identify various objects, including enemy equipment. The device is equipped with a thermal imager and a laser rangefinder, it also has the ability to film video. The use of the complex allows you to transmit information about the enemy in real time and direct artillery and Aviation.

In this version, we use a portable observation device (...) Among other things, it gives both the range and the coordinates of the targets we have aimed at. With it, we can direct and adjust artillery, and our favorite aircraft.

- leads RIA News scout's words.

On the eve of the fighters of the airborne units from the Kupyansky direction reported on the advance of the assault groups of Russian troops in certain areas. As reported, the enemy was knocked out from four strongholds, the advance was up to 2,5 kilometers. It is reported from the front line that Russian artillery has recently been very actively working on identified targets, preventing the enemy from counterattacking. The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine confirms the transition of Russian troops from a dead defense to an offensive, so far of a tactical plan.

      Since it is actively used, the development was adopted back in 2015. They wrote about her at VO in 2017, 2019

        Not in the first one. In 2000, there was such an active protection complex for the arena for our armored vehicles. But he did not get into service. They say when Serdyukov was told the cost of the complex was 300 k bucks per tank. The answer was. The crew is not worth that much. And the complex did not get into the series. In general, there is a problem with modern weapons, but there are not enough of them.

        Perhaps the developer and manufacturer are not from the "clip", they bought it one-time for a report that the product is there and when you wake up, you think only "effective managers" in the economy .. they are in the army to a fig and more.

    Of course, this Irony is a good thing ... but in modern warfare everything should be linked into a single network-centric system for collecting information about the battlefield in all three coordinates.
    A little yesterday this irony.
    A fighter in the BS zone should already have all the information about the enemy in his area in real time. Satellites, AWACS aircraft, all kinds of radars, scanners, optics on all available media are best suited for this.
    Irony is just a small piece of this system.

      Even such a cool idea has such a small drawback - it is enough to get access to the General Staff level system and the enemy will see the location of everything in general, everything up to a meter - well, isn't it ideal? Everything has pros and cons. It is foolish to hit one concept all the way without realizing the minuses

        Never get the big picture. Since any information has its own degree of access. The same battalion commander can only see his own area. Access to others will be closed to him. To know the whole picture, you need to have access like the Minister of Defense

      Quote: Lech from Android.
      A little yesterday this irony.

      As stated, this device sees day and night, takes pictures, determines the coordinates of the target and relays the signal in real time over a closed channel. What else would you like to comply with the cetecentric concept? I think that since 2015, production has produced some significant amount of this equipment, so that today it would be possible to have competent operators in the troops. So far, the number of such funds is not mentioned. There is one caveat, all the information is provided by journalists, who are all the same and "actively use ....", and "began to use ...". Therefore, it is difficult to understand - "he lay on the shelf" for the past few months of the SVO or from the first days it began to be used ... Otherwise, once again, people with incomprehensible merits begin to unreasonably pour mud on everyone and everything for sluggishness in mastering the necessary technology.

        why is it difficult for you to understand the mass use? If the device is checked, has proved itself, then infa is immediately transmitted from mouth to mouth. How about mavics. Here we see again, an example, they appeared, proved themselves, and already in the infantry, and not in special units;) immediately the rumor reached the media. The order went to the masses. Have you seen stationary versions of "irony" somewhere on infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers, tigers since the beginning of the NWO? Didn't notice? And if they were standing, would their ability to determine coordinates come in handy? Would you save someone's life?

      A fighter in the BS zone must have reliable tools to help complete the task, network-centricity is not a panacea and is still more of a fetish. The same Americans recently rejected hololens from Microsoft, and after the exercises, the soldiers said that they would have died if they had used them in a real battle.

    Opening the Oxford Dictionary - Irony is a subtle mockery expressed in a hidden form. A very correct name for a device that allows you to pile on large and thick cradles to everyone who did not understand the joke the first time.

    The real "irony" is that, despite the "Irony" and 10 months of NMD, the shelling of Donetsk continues. Unfortunately, the shelling of Belgorod began.
    What other "3,14pets" is needed to finally stop this.

      Before you start lamenting about the fact that everything we are fighting with is done THERE, and we don’t have anything for nothing, google it, at least, so that it’s not excruciatingly inconvenient. Since 2016, enterprises such as Istok and TsNII Tsiklon have been producing TEN THOUSAND uncooled matrices per year (for wearable devices such as Irony, and a comparable number of cooled matrices for more serious equipment. Well, the Zelenograd Fine Organic Synthesis Plant is not on the sidelines. In short, we we don't buy these matrices, we export them.So before you have suspicions, you need to learn the materiel.

        Release - good. It would be nice to have some more evidence.

        Well, respectively, if 10000 matrices are produced per year, where are 10000 products per year with these matrices?

    One small problem, you can use the complex only from heights above the enemy, that is, in 90% of cases it is useless, unlike the UAV.

      Not understood ? What's not to like? The observation device in the Irony complex has a separate computer and a data and video transmitter over a secure channel. What do you want more? What is more needed for an associated IR or spotter?

    A normally pumped thermal imaging circuit is able to see a person behind many shelters. It changes the war a lot. The only question is that in our territory, according to my memory, there is only one plant producing infrared CCDs, and it is not ours. Of course, we do not have our own engineers in this direction. So it's unlikely that the parameters of this thing are high. Irony....
