The Ruselectronics holding (part of Rostec) has begun the first serial deliveries to the Russian Armed Forces of the Zavet anti-tank defense control systems, which increase the effectiveness of the fight against enemy armored vehicles. This was reported by the press service of the corporation.
Rostec said that Zavet provides target designation to anti-tank formations and makes it possible to repel an attack by enemy armored vehicles. It is noted that automated control systems increase the effectiveness of various types of weapons by 1.5-2 times.
The command and observation vehicle from the Zavet complex is presented at the Ruselectronics stand as part of the IDEX-2021 international arms exhibition, which is taking place in Abu Dhabi. With the help of an external radar and an optical-electronic reconnaissance system, it can find targets at a distance of up to 7 km and recognize at a distance of up to 5 km. After determining the coordinates of the enemy and processing the data, “Covenant” automatically distributes armored targets between weapons.
The release says that the “Covenant” complex receives and transmits messages to subordinate and higher control points using radio communication and via wired channels. Its capabilities allow you to exchange information at a distance of up to 100 km. Data exchange takes place in a time mode close to real.
It is noted that in the event of failure of control points, their functions “Covenant” transfers to subordinate or higher authorities. This ensures the continuity of control and combat stability of the anti-tank defense.
On February 21, Andrey Terlikov, General Director, Chief Designer of the Ural Design Bureau of Transport Engineering (UKBTM, part of Rostec), announced that serial deliveries of the Russian Ministry of Defense of T-14 Armata main battle tanks would begin in 2022.
