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.
