Ukraine has been developing a number of defense equipment and weapons meant for combat helicopters.
The country’s state-run Ukroboronprom has developed gyro-stabilizing platforms for use in Mi-type combat helicopters, in cooperation with PJSC "Motor Sich" and a number of other private enterprises. The gyro-stabilizing platforms are integrated in the Barrier missile control system used in Mi-type combat helicopters, the company said in a press release Tuesday.
The state enterprise Photopribor has developed the PM-LKT suspension module that passed field tests last year. It is designed to provide search, detection and identification of tanks or armored vehicle-type ground targets.
Izyum Instrument-Making Plant, together with other Ukrainian defense sector factories, have developed a new-generation optical gunsight station OPSN-I according to NATO standards. It still needs to be tested to confirm its ability to work under extreme conditions.
OPSN-I includes high-power optics, a thermal imager, laser controls and range finders. It can be installed on various types of military equipment, in particular helicopters, airplanes, drones, armored vehicles and ships.
The use of the above-mentioned platforms will allow the targeting of the Barrier-V complex guided missiles via laser channels from helicopters, and in the future from attack aircraft.
