Auto AAs in Ukraine

Is this shit really from the 70s or did they just put a modernized display in an old asf tank?
Bonus question: how accurate are those numbers? the values on the display keep changing multiple times per second, is it the number of rounds left or what the fuck is going on here?

From the title of the video, I assume they've been targeting iranian drones.

      I can't get over how whimsical and unassuming that little jingle is. You'd expect some industrial sounding beep.

        it stands out and catches your attention because of it, it's probably by design

          I want it for my phone.

          It's perfectly designed to be piercing and cut through the loudness of living in a diesel generator without making you want to shoot your gunner for triggering it 200 times in the next hour.

    Numbers change because the target is moving, obviously

        Could be on an entirely different panel, screen, or even an analog counter somewhere else.

      No ammo counter on this dispaly, there is a 'left - gun/weapon - right' thing in the orange bar that looks like it might lead to a sub-menu.
      Also, the loweest visible line is something like 'freshl. (oading?) hatch closed(?)

      The range number probaly flips up and down as the computer tries to match up the radar target with the laser range(s) it generates by eliminating all laser returns that disagree too much.
      In an interview they stated that they fire in three round bursts, so six rounds, and that is enough agaisnt the Shaheeds because they fly straight and slow.

    Probably a early 80s display running on a 70s platform. Hell my dads machine shop had new Mitsubishi lathes running on those orange CRT screens up to the late 90s. Industrial and military applications don't just change specs because a shiny new thin came out.

    This is just an amber tube display, definitively 70's tech. As for the numbers, they are refreshed slowly on display, but the system fetches new data with each tracking radar ping

    The panel got installed for the commander for the model 1A2, it shows the information of the locked on target that is measured by the surveillance radar element. It is not the only control panel in the tank, pic related is the gunner's position.

    >the values on the display keep changing multiple times per second
    Wow, a flying drone doesn't stationary hover over the ground!?

    It's just for show. The numbers are produced by a random number generator.

    It is from the 70s.

    Very accurate as they need to be for the guns to be very accurate.
    And they are.

    >target speeed drops significantly after shots are fired
    This is what a hit looks like.

      The twitter thread also had a Germna guy explaining the acquisition and firing process in detail, the first burst was a hit then the second burst destroyed the target.
      You can hear the gunner exclaiming.

      All in all i'll file teh Gepard under 'kraut cold war space magic' from now on.
