    No that's the Zoopark-1M artillery detection radar.

    I would never guess. Original Zoopark is so different and on different vehicle, on the other side this one is so similar to Snow drift battery radar for Buk. I hope artillery units receive both Zoopark-1M and Credo-1S, which stand near Zoopark on photo.

    The name is indeed confusing, also because the 2002 model of the original "Zoopark-1" was also called "Zoopark-1M".

    Ukraine has by the way developed a very similar system, the 1L220-U "Zoopark-2".

    May I ask, why they decide to change vehicle from MT-LBu to the one, which is common for air defense and not in other branches of Russian military. After all, MT-LBu is still in production for other command posts.

    I'm not so sure that the MT-LBu is still in production. I highly doubt it actually. I rather think they are converting older vehicles (1V13-16 set for example) into new versions such as the R-149BMRg etc.

    I have to say the Russian Armed forces always looks the best on the parade square! Seems photos of them in the field they rarely have matching uniforms.

    Then it's not Armed Forces but some special team or Interior Forces.

    The second photo I think is TOES-520, which is GOES-520 without gyrostabilization.

    I don't know what the first photo is. Another kind of UOMZ-made FLIR, i guess. GOES-521, maybe?

    But, honestly, I wouldn't speculate. Mi-28N and Ka-52 seem to be using every single GOES version known to man on various prototypes and most of them look identical externally. I still don't know what is the "official" equipment for serial models, they use so many different ones. I guess GOES-451 for Ka-52 and GOES-521 for Mi-28N.
