At the Victory Parade in Moscow, modern airplanes, helicopters, tanks, armoured vehicles, anti-aircraft missile systems, multiple launch rocket systems and other weapons were presented - more than 180 pieces of equipment created at Rostec enterprises. In particular, eight new combat vehicles developed by Uralvagonzavod, Tekhmash, and High-Precision Complexes passed over the cobblestones of Red Square for the first time. 

T-15 Armata infantry fighting vehicle with dagger module

The T-15 cars themselves appeared on the main square earlier, in 2015. Then another version was introduced with lighter weapons - a 30-mm automatic gun 2A42. This time, the T-15 infantry fighting vehicle drove along Red Square with a 57-mm “Dagger” remotely controlled combat module.

The rate of fire of the BM-57 is 80 rounds per minute. High-explosive and armour-piercing shells are used for firing. Almost all ground targets, including tanks, as well as air targets, such as helicopters, attack aircraft and drones, can be targeted at range that can reach 14,500 meters.

The mass of the “Dagger" with ammunition and equipment placed outside the carrier is 3900 kg. As reported at the ARMY-2019 International Military-Technical Forum, the T-15 weighs 55 tons in configuration with the “Dagger”. The crew of the combat vehicle has three fighters, and nine motorised rifles are placed in the landing compartment.

Tank T-90M "Breakthrough"

T-90M "Breakthrough" battle tank is the latest upgrade of the T-90 tank, the main tank of the Russian army. For ten years, from the 2001 to the 2010, it was the world's best-selling battle tank.

Among the breakthrough innovations of the T-90M is a new turret with a 125 mm gun from the Armata tank, enhanced protection, a new engine with 1.1 thousand hp, and multi-channel sights of the tank commander and gunner to ensure the use of weapons around the clock.

The first batch of T-90M "Breakthrough" tanks entered the Russian army in April 2020.

Heavy flamethrower system TOS-2 "Tosochka"

TOS-1A combat vehicles (Solntsepek) and their successors TOS-2 (Tosochka) were part of the mechanised convoy at the parade.

The system, unlike its analogues of the previous generation - TOS-1A and TOS-1, moves on a wheeled chassis. TOS-2 does not have a transport-loading machine. For this, a crane is located on the combat vehicle itself, with the help of which shells are loaded into the launcher. This adds versatility and autonomy to the system. Ammunition with increased accuracy and firing range has been developed for TOS-2, however, TOS-1A ammunition can also be used. This system has completed all its tests.

ISDM Remote Engineering Mining System

In military operations, the use of mine-explosive barriers is indispensable. The fastest and safest way to set up minefields is to remotely mine an engineering system.

The ISDM system includes combat, transport-loading vehicles and transport-launch containers with engineering ammunition. They are equipped with mines of various types and are used to set minefields. The data of the flight mission and the parameters of self-destruction of mines are entered into the munition. At the same time, mines fully comply with the requirements of Protocol II of the Geneva Convention. 

At the moment, the ISDM is undergoing final tests, after which it will be adopted.

Multiple launch rocket system "Tornado-S"

It represents a deep modernisation of "Smerch" MLRS. The new system has been in service since 2017.

Its main components are new guided missiles and a modernised combat vehicle, created on the basis of BM “Smerch”. It is equipped with an automated fire control system and launch preparation equipment. This allows to quickly receive and process information, perform autonomous topographic binding of a combat vehicle, and orientation on the ground.

Flight mission data are brought to the shell by the control unit, created on the basis of the strapdown inertial navigation system. The package of guides of the Tornado-S combat vehicle is unified with the standard Smerch system, and each of the shells can be set according to individual parameters not only by flight range, but also along the trajectory for breeding them for various purposes. The firing range of guided missiles is more than 100 km.

As some experts estimate, one Tornado can replace about 20 Grad installations.

Anti-aircraft missile and cannon system "Pantsir-SM"

The anti-aircraft missile-cannon complex “Pantsir-S” took part in the parade at the Red Square previously, however, this year it was possible to see its modification - the modernised "SM".

Self-propelled air defense missile system "Pantsir-S" is intended for close cover of civilian and military installations from all modern air attack weapons. It can also protect a defended object from ground and air threats. The complex was created in 1994 and has since been significantly modernised.

The “Pantsir-SM” modification is equipped with a new multifunctional aiming station with a phased antenna array. Thus, the aiming range of the complex increased to 40 km - twice as much compared to the existing "Pantsir-S1".

Small-sized missiles of "Pantsir-SM" are suitable for the destruction of mini-drones, such as civilian quadcopter used for military purposes. For standard air-defence systems, this, at first glance, uncomplicated, target presents certain difficulties. Firstly, small drones that move at low speed are difficult to detect and track, and secondly, defeating them with conventional missiles designed for aircraft or cruise missiles is not economically feasible, given the cost of ammunition. The new “Pantsir-SM” can cope with the solution of these two problems.
