Small armored artillery boats of the national fleet recently completed a number of tasks at sea. The peculiarity of the solution was the need to test in practice the technical capabilities of one of the new artillery boats.

Among the various tasks performed by the crews was to test the automatic system of protection against enemy weapons. It should be noted that the sophisticated modern equipment of the boats allows to protect the crew and the hull of the boat with the help of “thermal traps”, which operate in automatic mode, in case of irradiation of the object. This system, in its properties reminiscent of aircraft protection systems.

Smoking is no less important and effective way of protection. Just as tanks on the battlefield use integrated smoke curtain systems to save the machine from laser guidance of controlled anti-tank systems, boats are capable of forming a huge cloud of smoke. The area covered by the smoke screen allows not only to prevent aiming, but also to completely hide visually, for a while, the exact location of the boat. The crews of the boats coped with the tasks.
