Interactive elements of the vehicle life-cycle support were demonstrated as well. The Corporation is actively promoting not only cutting-edge products but also services and modernization. The URALVAGONZAVOD slogan in a new exhibition series is “Our support for your success. Service, repair, modernization”.  

Models of the “Terminator”, the T-90SM tank and the “Terminator 2” on the T-72 tank platform attracted special attention of the exhibition visitors. These models featuring remote control are peculiar for being small copies of the full-scale vehicles.
