Exhibition IDEX-2023: novelties at the "arms fair" in Abu Dhabi

The IDEX exhibition, which takes place every two years in Abu Dhabi, is without exaggeration the largest «armory fair." Arms manufacturers from almost all over the world come here to present their new products and find potential buyers.

The exhibition in 2023 also pleased with its diversity. At the same time, it is worth noting that the weapons developers, apparently, carefully analyzed the latest conflicts and drew the appropriate conclusions.



At least, this is indicated by the huge variety of IDEX-2023 UAVs, without which, obviously, none of the modern conflicts can do.

By the way, the “hosts” of the exhibition, the United Arab Emirates, focused precisely on drones. Moreover, to a greater extent, weapons companies from the Emirates have focused on loitering ammunition, even introducing a kamikaze drone that can be launched from portable systems like the Javelin.

However, not only Drones. For example, the “electric” French Leclerc tank looks like a rather unexpected solution. According to the developers, this approach will make the car silent and economical.

Another surprise at IDEX-2023 was armored cars from an arms company from Uzbekistan. It is worth noting here that the country is participating in such events for the first time.

Uzbek vehicles are equipped with American engines, Finnish armor plates and other foreign equipment. From a local manufacturer there, perhaps, an armored capsule and some engineering solutions.

Meanwhile, armored cars have already attracted the attention of potential buyers, primarily due to their price. In this regard, only China can compete with Uzbekistan. The latter, by the way, even brought models of space rockets to the exhibition.

Naturally, Russia also showed its novelties in Abu Dhabi. In addition to a wide range of small arms from the Kalashnikov concern, armored vehicles and UAVs, special attention was drawn to the latest 30-mm ammunition for the BMP-3, which is equipped with an electronic fuse triggered by a timer.

Tellingly, only Russia has such ammunition in the aforementioned caliber today. At the same time, "smart projectiles" for the BMP-3 at the exhibition in Abu Dhabi are not accidental. After all, the UAE is armed with more than 500 of these machines.

    They showed the "armature", without a motor? or "mini copters". What else do we have in excess?

      I watched it on Sunday. The most important thing I saw was a 30mm projectile with a radio explosion! And as always, he fell out of the host's words - "if this projectile is here, then our troops have already received it in sufficient quantities." This is such a blizzard...

        The exhibition was interesting.
        Our boat was especially impressive with a speed of 170 km/h on a flat surface.
        Too bad we didn't get to visit there. good

    . special attention was drawn to the latest 30-mm ammunition for the BMP-3,
    . Amazing. All the best - to the exhibition. To the front - from conservation. Are the Saudis by any chance thinking of selling their BMP-3s? Ato suddenly the staffs want to buy, it’s clear for whom

    Electric tank?????? Class. And how long does the charge last, as well as how much is needed for recharging?
    special attention was drawn to the latest 30-mm ammunition for the BMP-3, which is equipped with an electronic timer fuse.
    The same 30 mm 2A72 gun is also installed on: BMD-4, BMD-4M, BTR-80A, BTR-82A, BTR-90M, BRM-3K, Uran-9. It is necessary to install equipment on them, especially on the BTR-82A
    Moreover, the same shells can also be used by the 30-mm 2A42 cannon, which is installed on armored combat vehicles BMP-2, BMD-2, BMD-3, BTR-90, BMPT, on Ka-29, Ka-50, Ka -52, Mi-28, Gyurza armored boats.
    When upgrading, they also need to install this programming equipment

    It would be better if they showed how they strengthened the armor of the BMP 1/2 and replaced the turrets with modern modules in the units participating in the NWO

    , Thank you for the video! The question is not for the editors, but already for Zvezda - somehow there is little analytics in terms of technology, the comparison is ours / not ours. The message is true, you need to participate. Solutions need to be promoted. Perhaps I am already getting old, but for some reason, from year to year, our unparalleled solutions are getting older, and countries that were almost nobody on the arms market 20 years ago are making ever stronger solutions ... 20 years ago in almost all areas our technology was either at the level or superior to foreign ones. Today, in very narrow segments, this is the case. Perhaps wrong.

    Does it make sense now, during the events in Ukraine, to participate in this exhibition? Maybe it's better for the army to buy everything we can produce.

    Everything is exactly so. Sadly.

    This is a complete paragraph! The country is at war, and not with slippers, but with NATO proxies with NATO weapons. And they go to exhibitions! The best training ground is war. They need your 30 mm shells with remote detonation, why are you stuck in Abu Dhabi, fools? I was especially pleased with the words of the representative of Rostec, you see, in these difficult times they found a way to represent the country at the exhibition ... I already felt sorry for them, the damned war does not allow them to earn.

    And of course, the main enchanting trick of our gunsmiths is the jump of a tank, infantry fighting vehicle, it doesn’t matter. It was also necessary to shoot in flight for complete happiness. If anything, then it was on these show-offs that the military-industrial complex and the Moscow Region slept for all 30 years. Parquet generals needed show-offs instead of really effective weapons.

    "... the latest 30-mm ammunition for the BMP-3, which is equipped with an electronic timer fuse ...." What does this mean? With "remote detonation" ?! Have you waited?! good drinks
