JSC Rosoboronexport, a subsidary of the Rostec State Corporation, will present over 100 samples of advanced Russian-made special, military and dual purpose systems at the international exhibition "Integrated Safety and Security 2013" taking place in Moscow from 21 to 24 May 2013.
Weapons, outfits and equipment made for special operations forces will traditionally take the centre stage of the exposition. They are, first of all, small arms, close combat weapons, various types of ammunition, means for carrying out assault and explosive device defusing operations.
The greatest popularity in the international arms market is enjoyed by the following Russian special-purpose weapon items: the PP-2000 and Vityaz submachine guns, AS and SR-3 special-purpose assault rifles, OSV-96 and VSS sniper rifles, SR-1 pistol, GM-94 hand-held grenade launcher, AGS-30 automatic grenade launcher.
At the Rosoboronexport stand also will be displayed a mock-up of the unique 82-mm 2B25 noiseless mortar. The 13-kg mortar allows overly covert and surprise engagement of enemy manpower at a range from 100 m to 1,200 m. Its grenade tailplane locks up powder gases within, thus preventing smoke, loud cracking, flames or shock waves propagation. The 2B25 mortar grenade has a powerful warhead providing target engagement within a radius of about 30 m.
Rosoboronexport will also display mock-ups of the Kedr submachine gun and AK-101 assault rifle, and SKATT conduct-of-fire trainer.
Visitors will be able to familiarise themselves with various radio communication sets and special-purpose radio frequency facilities, sights and reconnaissance devices as well as the Vega-E new highly effective small arms and combat shakedown trainer.
The exposition will also include the Tigr armoured car and BTR-80A armoured personnel carrier. These world-famous vehicles are highly popular with foreign customers. As a matter of fact, the Tigr cars with augmented armour protection are efficiently operated in Uruguay by special operations units, and that country plans to procure an additional batch of these vehicles.
Special attention will be paid to Russian helicopters capable of carrying out, besides military missions, relief operations during natural disasters and man-made accidents. These are, in particular, the Ka-226T and Ansat utility helicopters, Mi-26T2 heavy-lift helicopters and widely popular Mi-17 type helicopters.
