Uralvagonzavod armored vehicles exhibited at ARMY 2021

 Rostec’s Uralvagonzavod (UVZ) corporation is demonstrating the BMPT-72 Terminator tank-based armored fire support vehicle (AFV) and the T-90MS main battle tank at the ARMY 2021 Defence show.

“The T-90MS and BMPT-72 developed by the Ural Design Bureau of Transport Engineering (UKBTM, a subsidiary of UVZ) are successful modernizations of the T-90S and T-72 tanks, respectively. They apparently demonstrate how the active and efficient operation of these special vehicles can be prolonged with the greatest benefit and at the lowest cost. The vehicles’ high potential for further upgrade allows improving their design based on modern requirements and offering to a customer a new combat unit, which features enhanced capabilities or is modified for specified tasks”, Uralvagonzavod reported on the eve of the ARMY 2021 show.

All UVZ armoured vehicles have phenomenal reliability, strong protection and high maneuverability, the manufacturer emphasizes. ‘Excellent maintainability’ is also among the main advantages of these land systems.

The other major development of the UVZ is the TOS-1A heavy rocket launcher.  The system destroys targets effects of high temperature and overpressure by the unguided rockets with thermobaric warheads. The main difference of the TOS-1A system from a typical multiple rocket launcher (MRL) lies in its ability to provide almost the same firepower but at close ranges and with higher precision. It can also be used in the indirect firing mode. The Russian military regularly reports on the use of the TOS-1A systems during various field trials. The TOS-1A has a range of fire between 600 m and 6,000 m. Its firing unit can be mounted on either T-72 or T-90 MBT chassis, given the unified chassis with these tanks.
