According to Eastwood, Russian CBTs are a formidable weapon against cover. They use projectiles with a thermobaric composition, from which a flammable cloud is formed, penetrating almost any shelter. In addition, CBT allows the crew to prepare for battle in just 90 seconds.
Eastwood also considers the Russian TPS as dangerous due to their mobility and maneuverability – these systems are based on a tank tracked chassis. And because the TOS-1 “Buratino” can receive target designation thanks to the drones working in them in conjunction. In addition, TOS received fire control systems with a ballistic computer and a laser rangefinder.
Therefore, Eastwood calls for the creation of international military norms on the basis of which it will be possible to prohibit the use of TOC.
