The system for defense against air attacks has already passed preliminary tests, and now an experimental-industrial batch “Derivation-Air Defense” is being prepared. The first deliveries of the new anti-aircraft complex to the troops are scheduled for 2022.

“Derivation” is being created as an artillery defense complex against air attack weapons in the near zone. The presence of a modern optoelectronic system for detecting and tracking targets allows the complex to effectively engage in this zone most small air targets, including drones, cruise missiles, tactical aircraft, fire support helicopters and elements of precision weapons systems.

This efficiency is achieved by the capabilities of not only the combat vehicle itself, which could be seen at the parade, but also new shells with an electronic remote fuse and ready-made submunitions. New ammunition is currently being tested. The possibility of combating drones of various types has been confirmed – from small-sized to heavy drums, Alexander Potapov said in an interview with TASS.

We will remind, earlier it became known that the 57-mm cannon of high ballistics and increased firing accuracy, installed on the BMP-3, will be turned into a combat robot capable of operating in conjunction with a remote fire control machine and unmanned ground and aircraft for reconnaissance, target designation and fire adjustment.

The firing range allows you to destroy all possible ground and air targets. The new combat vehicle is all-weather and all-day, operates in any geophysical environment, in conditions of optical and electronic countermeasures, as well as the impact of unintended interference. Possesses passive protected means of detecting and tracking targets.
