82-mm 2B25 “Gall” silent mortar: developed at the Central Research Institute “Burevestnik” (Nizhny Novgorod). This 82 mm mortar fires no louder than a silenced Kalashnikov assault rifle, and without smoke and flames. This is achieved due to the fact that when fired, gunpowder gases are locked in the shank of the mine using a specially developed technology.
Aviation high-precision Kh-69 cruise missile: The Kh-69 missile has an innovative multi-stage aiming system. For guidance accuracy, the missile received high-tech ultra-precise altitude and speed meters, as well as an optoelectronic system that works on the final flight path.
“VPK-URAL” armoured car: The “VPK-Ural” vehicle has a mass of 14.5 tons. Thanks to the reduction in the size of the armoured habitable compartment, it was possible to increase the level of ballistic protection to the third level according to STANAG-4569, and mine protection – up to eight kilograms of TNT.
