Artillery reconnaissance officers of the Southern Military District develop mobile PRP-4A Argus reconnaissance points



The modern mobile point of intelligence PRP-4A "Argus", equipped with a thermal infrared device and a laser rangefinder, is being mastered by the reconnaissance units of artillery units of the Southern Military District stationed in the Volgograd region.

As the press service of the Southern Military District informs, during maneuvers at night, specialists will have to be identified and identified by degree of importance up to 50 of various, including moving targets, which are in direct line of sight, and also give a target indication for their destruction.

Intelligence center "Argus" is designed to conduct artillery reconnaissance, fire control and maintenance of ground artillery.

The reconnaissance point possesses an excellent masking system due to multiple-action thermal smoke equipment, which allows the installation of an unseen smoke screen up to 150 m and six 81-mm smoke grenade launchers, which are used to install air curtains at a distance up to 300 m, which reduces the vulnerability of the complex itself.

Intelligence station "Argus" has a mass of more than 13 t, it reaches speeds up to 65 km / h by land and more than 7 km / h by water. With one refueling, it overcomes the distance to 500 km, and is capable of performing tasks at ambient temperature to -40 degrees. From at an altitude of 3 thousand meters above sea level.

Intelligence center "Argus", received in the framework of the state defense order for the armament of units of the Southern Military District in the fall of last year, replaced its predecessor PRP-4 "Nard", the press service of the Southern Military District said.

    Actually, it’s difficult to call this technique a modern one, modernization of nothing more.

      Modernization is possible only when there is a reserve for it. It’s bad that not a new development, but it’s good that the reserve was such that it can be used now hi

    And which performance characteristics?
    I understand that there is a new thermal imager?
    Previously, we had some kind of thermal imager with a range of either 350 or 600 meters. And modern ones look up to 20km!Now, if there is a domestic long-range thermal imager here, then this is a breakthrough.
    And on which chassis it is here again.

    Is it Argus pictured?
    I suspected that we were armed with the latest artillery radar systems for reconnaissance and ground-based artillery firing service "Zoo-1"
    What is the difference ?

      "Zoo-1" is designed for counter-battery control. Those. should detect the work of enemy artillery and set the coordinates of the enemy battery along the trajectories of the shells, giving their artillery coordinates to suppress it. Argus is engaged in the search for targets, the accumulation of enemy troops, equipment, etc., to establish the coordinates of targets, to adjust the shooting.
      The same thing, only more efficiently, most developed countries do using UAVs, because they have no direct line of sight restrictions, while the slightest obstacle will hide the enemy from Argus.

    The zoo is a pure radar station, operating from the depths of the troops.
    Argus - radar less powerful + optics + laser illumination, works at the forefront.
