At the 9th International Exhibition of land and naval armaments – DEFEXPO 2016, which is held in India on March 28–31, Uralvagonzavod Corporation presents its military-purpose products, and its new technical developments.
For the first time at an exhibition abroad, Uralvagonzavod has displayed, a unique tank-mounted system for launching remotely detonated high-explosive projectiles, using a 125-mm ZVOF128 tank round with a high-explosive ZOF82 time projectile, which surpasses its global peers in terms of characteristics.
The system for remotely detonated projectiles may be installed on Т-72, Т-80 and Т-90 tanks, multiplying their combat effectiveness in all types of combat operations. The system includes a tank-born projectile programming control equipment and a 125-mm tank round ZVOF128 with ZOF82 fragmentation projectile for remote detonation along the trajectory. The projectile is intended to hit various types of armed targets, a wide range of unarmored and lightly-armored targets, including small surface targets, as well as air low-speed targets, such as unmanned aerial vehicles and helicopters.
