The 1st Azerbaijan International Defence Industry Exhibition “ADEX 2014” started in Baku. OJSC “Research and Production Corporation “URALVAGONZAVOD” demonstrated two full-scale samples – a BMPT-72 and a B-10M bulldozer, as well as full-scale and scaled-down models of other military equipment.

The visit of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev became the main event of the first day of ADEX 2014. During the visit, Ilham Aliyev attended the UVZ stand and its open exposition. Oleg Sienko, CEO of Uralvagonzavod Corporation showed him one of the revolutionary products made by Uralvagonzavod – fire support combat vehicle BMPT-72 or Terminatior-2. Its key features are all-aspect ballistic protection of a main battle tank, a powerful set of automatic weapons, large ammunition load for automatic weapons, and highly effective target search and detection equipment.

During the ADEX 2014 exhibition several meetings with representatives of foreign companies were held. Moreover, UVZ displays a B-10M bulldozer produced by CHTZ-URALTRAC (Chelyabinsk Tractor Plant). It has an enforced cab and can be used in rocky areas, where there is risk of rockfalls and rollovers. The bulldozer is designed for a wide range of tasks in construction, melioration, in mining, oil and gas industries for excavation work on grounds of 1-4 categories, including frozen and rocky soil.

UVZ displayed two full-sized models developed by JSC CRI Burevestnik (located in Nizhny Novgorod). They are: 2B25 mortar that provides stealth and surprise in combat because the shots are noise-, smoke- and fire-free and 2B24 mortar which is lighter because of advanced materials and can be used with new bomb, which are 2.5 times powerful that the original ones, have maximum firing range of 6 km and firing rate of 20 rounds per minute.

Besides, naval artillery systems produced by JSC CRI Burevestnik are displayed at the UVZ stand. There are a 100-mm А190 automatic naval artillery system with high rate of fire (75 rounds per minute), 57-mm А-220 naval artillery system with a remote control and a high rate of fire (300 rounds per minute) and 120-mm 2S12 “Sani” mortar carrier, as well as other models of Uralvagonzavod armoured vehicles.
