Army Russia was equipped with another batch of advanced intelligence systems called “Penicillin”, which showed an extremely serious level of performance and usefulness within the framework of the SVO on Ukrainian territories.
“The Ministry of Defense has received another batch of the latest 1B76 Penicillin sound-thermal reconnaissance systems, which are planned to be used in the special operation zone for counter-battery combat. “Penicillin” effectively detects the positions of the artillery of the Ukrainian troops and transmits the coordinates for their prompt destruction, ”RIA Novosti quotes the text of a statement made by an unnamed source.
Recall that the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation used advanced artillery reconnaissance systems “Penicillin”who managed to actually prove their own effectiveness during the battles in the Ukrainian territories. It is noted that they turned out to be an ideal tool for fighting against artillery installations transferred to the Armed Forces of Ukraine by the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance.
The text of the article notes that the main task of “Penicillin” is to conduct reconnaissance of possible locations for cannon and rocket types of artillery and, in addition, tactical missiles. Thanks to the complex, it becomes possible to record thermal and acoustic waves that diverge from the shots, which allows the operator to obtain the exact coordinates of the place where the enemy’s gun is located. It is noted that it takes about five seconds to calculate the location of the target that gave itself away by striking.
As the Public News Service previously reported, the publication in its material evaluated the artillery complex intelligence 1B75 “Penicillin”, which entered the disposal of the Russian troops.
