Uralvagonzavod (part of the UVZ Concern of the Rostec State Corporation) takes part in the 11th International Exhibition of Arms and Military Equipment MILEX-2023, which is held from May 17 to 20 in Minsk. In the capital of Belarus, the Nizhny Tagil enterprise presents both advanced military equipment and the possibility of modernizing military and engineering vehicles.
UVZ offers its export partners the upgraded T-72. This vehicle is an excellent example of obtaining a modern combat unit with improved capabilities through improved design. A comprehensive plan for the modernization of the T-72 included measures to increase firepower, security, mobility and command controllability. Considering that various modifications of the T-72 are in service with 50 countries of the world, modernization is especially in demand and relevant. It allows to extend the effective operation of special equipment with the greatest benefit and the lowest cost.
Of particular interest today is the T-90MS tank, which is recognized by experts and military specialists as one of the best vehicles of recent times. After the modernization, its combat and driving performance was significantly improved. In particular, an uprated engine was installed, a third-generation modular dynamic protection was introduced, an upgraded gun, as well as modern means of communication. The improved combat module of the armored vehicle significantly increases the search and observation capabilities of the commander on the spot, on the move, regardless of the time of day.
No less promising today is the equipment of Uralvagonzavod, developed on the basis of the T-90. Exhibitors and guests of the exhibition will see a tank support combat vehicle. The BMPT is especially needed on the battlefield of the 21st century, where there are more and more targets that are difficult to hit by existing types of military equipment, requiring an increase in the density of fire of a military unit. BMPT successfully solves all these tasks. The main advantage of the machine is a multi-channel automatic weapon system (guided missiles, 30 mm automatic guns, grenade launchers, 7.62 mm machine gun) with a large ammunition load, modern all-aspect protection against anti-tank weapons, and an all-day fire control system, as well as high mobility and maneuverability.
Another product based on the “ninetieth” is the IMR-3M engineering obstacle-blocking vehicle. It is considered one of the most promising and perfect in the world and in many ways has no analogues. IMR-3M has high cross-country ability, is able to make passages in forests, rocky and snowy blockages, carry out earthmoving work, etc. To do this, the kit includes a universal dozer blade, a telescopic boom with a manipulator with a maximum reach of 8 meters and a load capacity of 2 tons, a bucket with a capacity of 0.35 cubic meters. IMR-3M will easily lead a tank column even through areas contaminated after a nuclear strike.
