This time the JSC “Scientific production association High precision weapons” holding company united eleven companies under its auspices. In bulk, the exposition of the holding  company looked powerful and imposing.

The representatives of the First Arctic Channel found out, that adding arctic “Pantsir” to the arctic troops has allowed to significantly increase the mobility of the later and, as a result, enhanced the protection of critical objects against air threats in the arctic conditions.

A.V. Morozov, the engineer-in-chief has noticed the large scale of the second forum “Armiya-2016”. “The exhibition is interesting in different ways for everyone working here, but especially for the medium-ranked servicemen, since they do not know, what is in service with other units and what hardware generally is currently in service and what the defence industry can offer to the army. Since not everything developed by the designers is in service, - A.V. Morozov emphasized. – And there’s no doubt, that everything exhibited here is interesting for the Russians, young men who will join the army. The power and the might of Russian weaponry is demonstrated here both at the stationary grounds and in action, at the test range”.
