22nd May 2017 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Production of Rostec company Ruselectronics’ Penicillin artillery reconnaissance system will begin in early 2019, the company announced on 11 May.

According to the company state trials of the system are now nearing completion.

The Penicillin system is designed to detect the firing positions of enemy artillery, mortars, multiple launch rocket systems, anti-aircraft and tactical missiles, and adjust responsive artillery fire.

Mounted aboard a Kamaz-6350 chassis, the mobile system can operate in a combat radius up to 25km. The system consists of a 1B75 electro-optical module, which works in the infrared and visible spectrum using imaging cameras placed on a telescopic boom, and several ground-installed 1B76 sound and seismic receivers.

The system can operate in an unmanned mode for precise artillery reconnaissance without risking the lives of army personnel.
