Almaz-Antey will be taking part in Defexpo India 2022,
the 12th international of India's flagship defence exhibition in Gandhinagar,
Gujarat on 10-13 March 2022. The concern’s participation is aimed at bolstering
its image as a reliable supplier of exclusive defence products.
The company will be demonstrating its research, development and production
potential related to designing, manufacturing, servicing, life extension,
modernisation and disposal of products. The concern’s umbrella exposition will
feature products of its five subsidiaries: NPO Almaz, Izhevsk Electromechanical
Plant Kupol, All-Russian Research Institute of Radio Engineering, NPO Novator
At Defexpo India 2022, Almaz-Antey will be displaying mockups of S-400 Triumf
and S-350E Vityaz SAM systems. The short-range category will be represented by
mockup combat vehicles of the Tor-M2E and Tor-M2K SAM systems, as well as by
mockup autonomous combat modules of the Tor-M2KM SAM system. Concern specialists
will present information about the programme to upgrade the OSA-AKM SAM system
to OSA-AKM1 standard.
The S-350E Vityaz will be making its debut in India. The system is intended for
defending administrative, industrial and military facilities against mass
attacks by various types of contemporary and future aerial threats, including
simultaneous attacks from different directions and at extremely low to high
altitudes. The S-350E Vityaz may operate autonomously or as part of the
customer’s defence system.
Also for the first time in India, Almaz-Antey will be showcasing a mockup of the
Podlyot-E automated 3D low-altitude radar, which is used by air-defence and air
force units for detecting, locating, tracking, identifying friend-or-foe and
calculating the flight parameters of aerial targets and advanced low-altitude
aerial threats, including low-observable targets, under intensive active,
passive and combined jamming and suppressive fire.
“One of the radar’s key advantages is its mobility. It can be quickly moved to
the location where it is needed the most. The Podlyot-E demonstrates
consistently high effectiveness in detecting both hypersonic missiles and
low-flying UAVs,” said Vyacheslav Dzirkaln, Almaz-Antey deputy general director
for foreign economic activity.
Defexpo India 2022 will also be offered exhaustive information about the Resurs
and Rif-M naval radars, the Komar air-defence turret, and missiles used in
conjunction with the Kalibr integrated missile system.
Apart from the Podlyot-E, Almaz-Antey will also provide information about the
Gamma-DE, Kasta-2E2, Furke-E and Istra-E radars.
Also exhibited at the concern’s stand will be a mockup of the Adjutant universal
target system and a turbojet unmanned vehicle as one of its elements.
“India is a big country, a powerful state with one of the world’s strongest
armies,” Dzirkaln noted. “We see the Indian Armed Forces’ need for continuous
training of SAM system crews. In our opinion, the Adjutant is the best available
solution for these purposes.”
He continued: “Almaz-Antey has repeatedly demonstrated that it is a constantly
evolving innovative integrated structure of the Russian defence industry, whose
scientific, technological and production capacities allow for developing and
manufacturing highly effective air- and missile-defence systems that meet the
highest advanced requirements and for producing civilian produce to world
