MOSCOW, February 18, 2011 - From 20 to 24 February, the Federal State Unitary Enterprise
Rosoboronexport will present the newest Russian armaments and military
equipment at the 10th International Defense Exhibition, IDEX 2011, to be
held in the capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi.

Russia has been a regular participant at the show, starting
from its first edition in 1993, and its products invariably attracted the
attention of visitors from different countries.

"This is one of the most interesting and large-scale arms
exhibitions in the world. Particularly, IDEX has fostered military-technical
cooperation between our country and the United Arab Emirates and some other
countries in the region. Here we have always displayed our best new products.
This time again IDEX will mark a new milestone for us - for the first time we
will present the Russian military equipment in a format that fully meets the
needs of the time - using modern 3D modeling and visualization technologies.
This is truly a qualitative leap in our work at exhibitions," - said Nikolai
Dimidyuk, Rosoboronexport's special programs director and head of delegation
at the exhibition.

The new concept involves the use of an interactive exhibition
complex. For spectacular and dynamic show of Russian military equipment's
capabilities, a wide panoramic screen and interactive 3D models are used. The
presentation will be accompanied by brief specifications of the equipment.
Five to six screenings are planned to be held at IDEX 2011 daily.

More than 20 weapon systems will be presented in the new
format. Among them are T-90S MBT, Msta-S SP howitzer, BMP-3M IFV, BTR-80A
APC, TOS-1A heavy flamethrower system, Smerch and Grad multiple rocket
launchers, 120mm Vena automated self-propelled artillery system, Nona-SVK
self-propelled artillery gun, Khrizantema-S SP anti-tank missile system, as
well as helicopters.

As expected, the BMPT, a unique tank support combat vehicle,
which will also be presented in a new format, will arouse much interest among
professionals. It carries powerful armaments, including two 30mm 2A42
automatic cannons coupled with a 7.62mm machine gun, two missile launchers
with four supersonic Ataka-T ATGMs, two 30mm AG-17D automatic grenade
launchers. BMPT's crew includes three operators enabling quick detection and
simultaneous destruction of three different targets in the 360-degree sector
at once. The targets are allocated among the crew members by the vehicle's
commander, who himself can fire in duplicate control mode, if required. With
its powerful armoring and high mobility, the BMPT can be used both jointly
with tanks, destroying low-observable and most dangerous targets like as
enemy antitank weapons, and independently in order to strengthen and support
the infantry, escort and guard convoys and facilities, defeat terrorist
