Defense industry to present fundamentally new arms systems for ground forces in 2014 - Rogozin (Part 2)
NIZHNY TAGIL. Sept 25 (Interfax-AVN) - The Russian defense industry is on the verge of creating fundamentally new systems of arms for ground forces, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin told reporters on Wednesday.
"We will show you new samples in a year. They already exist. I have just seen them and have made sure that we have done all this," Rogozin said when asked what was shown at the closed exposition part of the Russian Arms Expo exhibition in Nizhny Tagil.
Uralvagonzavod, which is developing the new armored platform Armata, and other major corporations have fulfilled their promises, Rogozin said.
"Pilot prototypes already exist. At that, these are not some skeletons or frames of cars. These are vehicles, which are in running condition, with arms, control systems and are unique at that. Knowing for sure what leading global producers have, I think that these vehicles are more modern," Rogozin said.
"We hope that we will be able in a year - having held all necessary state tests - to confirm that Russia is becoming a leader among global producers in terms of armored equipment," Rogozin said.
