12th edition of DEFEXPO INDIA-2022 Exhibition on Land,
Naval and Homeland Security is opening its doors to specialists from all over
the world. The exhibition will be held from 10th to 13th March in Gandhinagar,
Gujarat. Rosoboronexport, part of Rostec Corporation, is an active and loyal
participant of the event and this year we are happy to come to India once again.
Rosoboronexport organizes a joint Russian pavilion of a dozen booths bringing
numerous Russian companies – producers of military materiel and services
providers – under one umbrella in Hall 11.
And since the exhibition is equally dedicated to land, naval systems as well as
security issues Rosoboronexport is offering cutting-edge solutions in all
spheres, most of which can be fully integrated or blended into the "Make in
The Russian exposition is wide and diverse. It includes tanks, armoured
vehicles, artillery, air defence systems, electronic warfare complexes and
The centerpiece of Uralvagonzavod display, part of Rostec Corporation, is the
most advanced T-14 Armata main battle tank. The T-14 tank is one of a kind by
composition and technical solutions. It is equipped with a powerful 125 mm
smooth-bore cannon-cum-missile launcher, two machine guns, one harboured in a
remote-controlled weapon station and an automated digital fire control system.
The protection has a multidimensional design with guidance jamming, active
protection and modern ERA systems. The crew is safely accommodated in a
well-protected compartment inside the hull.
Another tracked vehicle is the Sprut-SDM1 light amphibious tank. In terms of
specifications and capabilities no other vehicle comes close. The Sprut-SDM1 is
the most lightweight tank on the market, but is armed on a par with main battle
tanks with a 125 mm cannon that is also used to launch missiles thus providing
the light tank with an advantage over other heavy armour in terms of engagement
range. Mobility characteristics of the Sprut-SDM1 are truly unique: it moves
over all types of terrains no matter how boggy, sandy or unstable they are, it
performs well in hot deserts, humid jungles and high mountains; the tank
negotiates any bodies of water afloat using two waterjets which ensure both
forward and rearward movement of the tank. Moreover, in the water the Sprut-SDM1
retains the ability to reconnoiter and engage targets at Sea State 3. Certain
design and technological solutions provide the light tank with a unique
capability to be transported by aircraft and air-dropped into the theater of
The Boomerang Unified Combat Platform is an 8x8 amphibious armoured chassis. All
the modern market trends and demands were taken into consideration during the
development process. It has a new composition with the ramp door for the troops.
APCs and IFVs are designed on this platform. The protection system of the
vehicle is based on a multilayer principle and can be adjusted. The weapon
systems allow engagement of a long list of targets in any environment. The
operational characteristics, firepower, maneuverability, protection, C2
capabilities and overall performance of the new Russian-made vehicle are up to
present day and perspective combat and operational requirements.
Different families of armoured vehicles are presented at the booth of
Rosoboronexport including models of TIGR armoured vehicles, Typhoon-K MRAP and
Tornado K-53958 armoured multi-purpose chassis.
Rosoboronexport jointly with Russian industry is ready to cooperate also in the
sphere of multiple launch rocket systems of different calibers.
The 9K515 MLRS is a further development of the battle-proven 300 mm Smerch
system. It is designed to engage motorized infantry, tank and artillery units,
including those with high-precision weapon systems. Modern Automated Laying and
Fire Control System ensures engagement readiness time of 30 seconds upon target
data input and pin-point accuracy. The Guided MLRS rockets with mighty warheads
and submunitions defeat targets at distances of up to 120 km.
Other calibers include 122 mm Tornado-G MLRS which embodies an upgrade of a
well-known Grad system and 220 mm TOS-1A heavy flamethrower system.
The Tornado-G MLRS features an upgraded automated laying and fire control system
with a navigation system that automatically calculates firing data, lays the
tube pack and automatically inputs data into the fuzes of the rocket projectiles
making the system quicker, more efficient, easier and safer to operate.
The TOS-1A is a powerful system that operates in immediate contact with the
adversary on the frontline. The full salvo of 220 mm thermobaric rockets covers
the area of 40,000 m2 and it is extremely efficient against bunkers and
fortifications, as after the detonation the thermobaric mixture penetrates any
crevasse, cave or hole providing indisputable advantage especially in
Air Defence sector is widely presented in the Russian pavilion, organized under
the auspices of Rostec Corporation. Among these solutions are:
The Pantsir-S1 air defence gun and missile system that is designed for
destruction of aircraft, rotorcraft, cruise missiles, high-precision weapons,
and other aerial targets. Main distinguishing features of the system are its
construction that includes guns and missile launchers on one combat vehicle,
target acquisition and engagement capability on the move, large ammunition
allowance of missiles and 30 mm rounds. The Pantsir-S1 ADGMS boasts a large
engagement envelope of 20 km range and 15 km altitude which together with its
ability to engage 4 targets simultaneously gives it a competitive edge of the
The Vityaz air defence missile system is a unique medium-range ADMS able to
destruct all types of aerodynamic targets and ballistic missiles. The undeniable
strength of the system is its ability to simultaneously engage targets
approaching from different directions and at the entire altitude range. The
Vityaz ADMS incorporates two types of surface-to-air missiles with the maximum
engagement range provided – 120 km, and altitude – 25 km. One system can engage
up to 16 targets at one time.
Electronic warfare remains an important and difficult topic nowadays. At the
booth of Rosoboronexport you will be able to get insight on the newest
developments in electronic warfare including Krasukha EW system, Repellent and
Repellent-Patrul system for countering small-size UAVs.
The Krasukha mobile electronic warfare system is intended to protect military
and state infrastructure against aerial reconnaissance and air strikes by
jamming airborne side-looking radars, weapon-control radars, navigational radars
as well as flight support terrain-following radars. The system is produced by
KRET holding company within the state-owned Rostec Corporation.
The Repellent EW system is designed for signal intelligence of UAVs and
suppression of their control and navigation systems. The system is capable of
jamming command signals and telemetry channels at distances within line-of-sight
(depending on the altitude of the drone). The suppression range of the
navigation channel is at least 30 km.
Another system that effectively counters small-size unmanned aerial vehicles is
the Repellent-Patrol complex. It is used to protect infrastructure facilities
and convoys from drones, detecting and suppressing communication and navigation
channels of the UAV. The Repellent-Patrul operates in sector and circular modes
ensuring suppression range of aircraft-type UAVs in the sector mode of up to 20
km and suppression range of quadcopters of up to 4 km in the circular mode.
DEFEXPO INDIA-2022 is not only about ground-based systems but naval and security
solutions as well. Rosoboronexport is bringing a large portfolio of marine and
naval systems that we can offer to our partners in India.
The Alexandrit-E Project 12701 minesweeper is produced by the United
Shipbuilding Corporation, the largest shipbuilding corporation in Russia which
is also present in the Russian pavilion at the exhibition. The Alexandrit-E
minesweeper is capable of providing effective countermine reconnaissance,
protection of naval bases, exclusive economic zones, ships and vessels on
routes, but it also ensures highly accurate search and destruction of
Moreover, at the booth of Rosoboronexport specialists can find models of the
Rubezh-ME and Bastion coastal missile systems.
The latter is designed to engage surface targets from the tactical depth using
supersonic missiles. The Bastion system armed with Yakhont missiles can overcome
air defence of nearly every ship especially when launched in salvo. Thanks to
the long range of fire and high velocity of the Yakhont missiles, the Bastion is
capable of delivering sudden strikes against distant sea-surface targets.
Flexible program-controlled flight path allows missiles to overcome air defence
system and approach targets from unexpected directions.
The Rubezh-ME coastal missile system is designed to detect and engage
sea-surface targets at littoral areas. The main advantage of the system is
integration of target designation and combat systems into one platform, so that
just one vehicle can effectively engage ships up to corvette class with up to 4
missiles reaching a target from different directions.
Additionally, Rosoboronexport is displaying other materiel at the booth
including long-range high-precision rifles of LOBAEV ARMS and ORSIS brands as
well as thermal rifle scopes designed and produced by Infratech, namely Titan
and Deimos ones. These scopes are very weather-resistant, can operate in the
harshest weather conditions, any time of day, any season.
DEFEXPO INDIA-2022 is a great venue for companies and state agencies to
establish new and widen existing partnerships, share knowledge and experience.
Rosoboronexport invites all specialists attending the exhibition to the Russian
pavilion to enjoy the variety of arms, technologies, weapon systems, gear and
equipment we offer.
