Russian commando units participating in the special operation in Ukraine have deployed a new robotic sniper detector known as the “Sosna-N.”

A source within the defense-industrial complex told Russian government-owned TASS that a batch of Sosna-N anti-sniper systems was procured for special units and successfully field-tested in the operation area.

The primary purpose of the Sosna-N is to pinpoint and locate enemy snipers with exceptional precision, thereby enhancing the safety and effectiveness of special forces during their missions. This robotic sniper detector serves as a vigilant guardian on the battlefield, specifically designed to detect enemy snipers and preempt potential threats.

The 'Sosna-N' functions by scanning the surrounding area for optical devices such as sniper rifle scopes, binoculars, or anti-tank missile targeting systems. Upon detecting such a device, it emits an acoustic signal and deploys a specialized laser beam to disrupt it. This advanced detection system can identify a sniper within a range of 3 kilometers (1.86 miles), while its laser countermeasure has an effective range of up to 2 kilometers (1.24 miles). Importantly, the device is equipped with a portable control pad, weighing approximately 1.1 kilograms (2.42 pounds), allowing for easy maneuverability by soldiers in the field.
