Gunner’s combined sight-guidance range finder “Sodema”

Gunner’s combined sight-guidance range finder “Sodema” (hereinafter referred to as “Sodema” sight) provides for a high accuracy of gun laying and shortening of target kill time.


“Sodema” sight installed into the vehicle replaces two gunner’s sights: “SOZH-M” and “Vesna-K”.

Combined sight-guidance range finder serves for observation of the battlefield, for target detection and identification, target ranging, laying guided ammunition, accurate firing the weapons system at any time of the day or night, as well as in the conditions of insufficient visibility.

“Sodema” sight has an independent two-plane field of view stabilization, day sighting and thermal imaging channels, a built-in laser range finder and a guided missile control channel.

To perform fire missions effectively a built-in laser range finder is provided, allowing target ranging with an error maximum 5 m.
