Russia will exhibit for the first time its modernized T-90S main battle tank along with a score of other new weapons at the EUROSATORY 2012 arms exhibition in Paris, Russia’s state arms exporter Rosoboronexport said on Thursday.
The EUROSATORY 2012 defense expo will take place at the Parc d’Expositions north of Paris on June 11-15. It will host over 400 defense companies from 47 countries, including 14 Russian companies.
Russia will showcase a record number of models of armored vehicles, including the fully upgraded T-90S main battle tank, BMPT tank support fighting vehicle, Kornet-EM anti-tank missile system mounted on a Tigr armored vehicle and a new Ural armored truck.
“It is the first time that we are exhibiting such a wide range of real life models at this show,” Rosoboronexport deputy general director Igor Sevastyanov said.
The T-90S tank will be the star of the Russian exhibit, he added.
T-90S redesigned turret features a modernized 125-mm gun, new fire control, navigation and communications systems, and a remote controlled mounted 7.62-mm machine gun.
The modified T-90S is fitted with an increased power multi-fuel 1,130-h.p. diesel engine with gas turbine injection, which allows the vehicle to attain a top speed of over 60 km/h on the road and up to 45 km/h on rough terrain.
Driving is simplified with a steering wheel and automatic transmission.
In addition to armored vehicles and air defense systems, Russia will also exhibit a variety of combat and military transport helicopters.
