Baton "Argument" and anti-fragmentation blanket "Comfort": in Russia, defense products are given non-standard names

Diminutive names such as "Tosochka", or "flowery", like "Tulip" or "Hyacinth", belong to the formidable arms. According to the established tradition in Russia, defense products are often given non-standard names.


Sometimes a fair amount of irony is felt in such names. An example is the Penicillin artillery reconnaissance complex. Of course, it has nothing to do with medicine. He is able to detect enemy artillery, determining its location by sound or using thermal imaging equipment.


The "improving" technique can also include the tropospheric station "Diagnoz", as well as some others.

It is difficult to say what the developers were guided by when they called the infantry shovel "Excitement", but the name turned out to be unusual and memorable.

We like to give weapons affectionate female names. As an example, it is worth mentioning a series of submarines bearing the affectionate old Russian name "Lada". This tradition goes back to the Great Patriotic War, when the first Soviet multiple launch rocket system BM-13 was called "Katyusha".

A certain "trolling" can be seen in the name of the heavy flamethrower system (TOS) "Sun". And her next version was affectionately called "Tosochka".

Probably, in order for our servicemen to have an association with home warmth, they decided to call the anti-fragmentation blanket “Comfort”.


A similar principle is followed by the developers of special equipment for law enforcement. An example of this is the Argument rubber baton or the Tenderness handcuffs.

    I suddenly wanted such a blanket, but then I looked at the price tag.

    So that “heavy blanket” is now a trend.

      Yes, not only in the army .. Our office did the modernization of boiler automation. One device that issued an alarm and indication via a communication channel was called "ATAS" Abbreviation. Automatic Translator of Emergency Situations.

    But who was smart enough to name the armored vehicle "Punisher"? They could also call "The Executioner"

      Well, the police were renamed the police, and here it’s not far from the Punisher with the Sonderkommandos.

        Actually, there is already a "Punisher". An armored car appeared in the North Caucasus about ten years ago.

    By the way, no one knows where the bell with a notification about the reply to a comment has gone on the main page in the mobile version?

    Was it personally deleted for me for something or are these for everyone?

      Most likely there was a vulnerability that was exploited in the last hack of the site. Removed just when the site was blocked.

      This "bell" has disappeared since the hacker attack on VO.
      I hope they will restore it soon, it was very convenient now and I don’t know if anyone answered your comment.

    To be honest, it's a strange post. If as a reminder of the names and so on. there are few names and photographs.
    Even earlier articles on this topic are even more interesting.
    Or is it just a lure to the cart. Under the slogan "short, capacious, about nothing"!

    The anti-shatter blanket was beautifully named. Shmyknul and buried. Where are these blankets? Only in the picture, like the rest. Which, who wants to live, must buy with his own money. The army should call, and parents should dress their child with everything that will leave him crippled, but alive. And do not care that the state did not even spend a ruble on it.

    bully And then it turns out that the weapon was called by a woman who had her own personal office in the building of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. Under the Ministry of Agriculture of the USSR, we had one that had its own personal office and gave names to the "steamboats" associated with the fishing industry.

      If the author had dug a little deeper, even VO, he would have learned a lot for himself about the general principles of naming weapons and military equipment in the army
      Nothing about the article.

    We had it from time immemorial, in the USSR and continued in Russia, and there was a famous series of self-propelled artillery mounts (just like a series of postage stamps), but it was the power and beauty of the "Flower Series" (Year of Adoption):
    2S3 "Acacia" - 152 mm divisional howitzer (1970)
    2S4 "Tulip" - 240 mm self-propelled mortar (1974)
    2S7 "Peony" - 203 mm (1976)
    2S1 "Gvozdika" - 122 mm regimental howitzer (1972)
    2S5 "Hyacinth-S" - 152 mm regimental howitzer (1970)
    2B9 "Vasilek" - 82 mm automatic 5-shot mortar (1970)
    9K123 "Chrizantema-S" - Anti-tank missile system (2005)
    SAM "Ledum" - SAM in place of SAM "Pine" (2017)
    2S34 "Khosta" - ATGM (2008)

    rubber baton "Argument" or handcuffs "Tenderness" And what ? Everything is thought out to the millimeter!
    If anyone has dealt with a club, he will not doubt that this is an Argument! But it is worth noting that this is not an individual, but a "family"! (Baseball bat-argument! Brass knuckles-argument! Kamenyuka-argument!)
