When a threat arises, the 3VD35 protective ammunition is fired in the direction of the enemy's attack and creates a curtain of aerosol interference that "deceives" the enemy's precision ammunition guidance systems.

The main advantage of the ammunition is the ability to protect armored vehicles from high-precision ammunition, including from attacks in the most vulnerable upper hemisphere, which has a thinner armor and, as a rule, is not covered with dynamic or anti-cumulative protection. The development "covers" the equipment both from high-precision aircraft weapons, loitering ammunition, and from third-generation anti-tank missile systems, including Javelin complexes.

Caliber: 76mm. Length: 290 mm. Weight: 1.8 kg. The temperature range for the use of the ammunition is from -50° to +55°.
