    Thanks, also I have a book that says the PSO-1 sight on the SVD has a limited infared capability, how is this achived and is it anything special vs. a standard scope?

    It has an IR sensitive plate in it. Any active IR sources appear as pale orange points of light. If the enemy are using active IR sights you can target them at night. Not likely to be useful these days but because it was designed to be used in darkness it does have a light to illuminate the reticule so if you have a mortar unit fire flares over the enemies heads you can use the SVD to accurately shoot at them. With an unlit reticule it is hard to put a black crosshair over a dark target at night.

    WOW.... Check this out!

    See the gray upside down domes at the very bottom of the screen just in front of the undercarriage...

    DIRCM.

    ie http://www.scorpion.com.gr/manta.asp

    In other words a laser beam that dazzles and blinds incoming IR and IIR and EO guided missiles.

    This is also a surprise, a Hokum with ATAKA missiles. There is no visible guidance pod so I assume it is given guidance commands via the MMW radar in the nose. (the ATAKA and Shturm operate with radio command guidance in the 35 GHz frequency range which is mm wave radar frequencies.)

    Doesn't BMPT have laser guided ATAKA missiles? In that way laser guidance for Vikhr missiles could work with laser guided ATAKA also.

    The "Moskva" (former "Slava") surface-to-surface missile cruiser of the Guards, Russia's Black Sea Fleet flagship, in the Bay of Sevastopol.
    Black Sea Fleet related news:


    KIEV, December 26 (RIA Novosti) - Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko gave on Friday a special governmental working group two months to prepare proposals for the civilian use of the Sevastopol naval base after 2017. "Prepare a list of proposals for the civilian use of the infrastructure in Sevastopol Harbor after 2017," the decree issued by the president said.
    Russia's Black Sea Fleet uses a range of naval facilities in Ukraine's Crimea, including the main base in Sevastopol, as part of a 1997 agreement, under which Ukraine agreed to lease the bases to Russia until 2017.
    Yushchenko announced in the summer that Ukraine would not extend the lease of the Sevastopol base beyond 2017, and urged the Russian fleet to start preparations for a withdrawal.
    Although the agreement for Russia's use of the base includes a possible extension of the lease, and Moscow has repeatedly said it wants negotiations on the issue, Ukraine reiterated its position in October that it would not permit an extension of Russia's naval presence in the country after 2017.
    The sides agreed on December 15 to hold the next meeting of a subcommittee on the Black Sea Fleet at the level of deputy foreign ministers in February-March 2009 in Kiev.
    Meanwhile, Russia is considering opening a base at Ochamchira, a seaside town in the separatist Georgian republic of Abkhazia, which has been recently recognized by Russia as an independent state, as a possible replacement for the Sevastopol base

    Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko gave on Friday a special governmental working group two months to prepare proposals for the civilian use of the Sevastopol naval base after 2017.
    Why such a hurry as the lease will cease over 8 years? Yushchenko is keeping up the heat on Russia to leave that base.

    IAI was supposed to develop and interconnect on-board radio-electronic equipment. Also IAI was supposed to bear some expenses about that project.

    As for me, cooperation of IAI and Kamov and some other design departments on modernisation of russian helis and jest for India, Pakistan etc. was a fail. It was a betrayal and an example of how effective an intelligence coul be in
    circumstances when personal profit stands above state's interests.
    *hehehe, overpatriotic, nah? But that's so. That cooperation was a fail*

    Coz he wants Ukraina to be in NATO, coz he wants to show his pro-american, pro-european position, coz he wants to remain in memory like a great leader who made Ukraina a great european country, geopolitical dominant in Black Sea region etc (and not like orange revolution scum=)))
    Coz no one can predict, what government Ukraina will have in 2017. Will it be pro russian or anti russian, will Ukraine be in NATO by 2017 or it'll not, will it strive for NATO or for kinda new Warsaw pact Organisation. So we'd better take some steps now, esteblishing democracy & point out fvking moskali their place=)))

    I get what you are saying but if Ukraine were to join Nato,Russia 'd certainly pull out of the 1997 "treaty of friendship",meaning that it won't withdraw from Sevastopol in 2017.More troubles ahead.

    Afro, stop hotlinking your photos directly from rian.ru. you are going to get yourself in trouble. Rehost them on something like imageshack or other.

    The main troubles get out of the simple fact, that Russia do not have any proper place to built a new navy base on the Black Sea and to withdraw the Black Sea Fleet to this place - even if the decision will be made to spend zillionz of roubles for such construction. Another fact is that the text of the treaty do not have any obligations to withdraw the fleet from Sebastopol exactly in 2017. It stated the right of Russia to use Sebastopol up to 2019 (the treaty was ratified by Rada in 1999 for 10 years with automatic prolongation for next 10 years if the treaty would not be denounced by one of the sides 6 months before the date of automatic prolongation), and possibility for further prolongation.

    The Hokum with Ataka missiles (number 062) has some kind of radar on the left wingtip. Could it be used to guide the Ataka?
