Minsk hosted the exhibition MILEX-2014

9 July in Minsk opened the international exhibition of weapons and military equipment MILEX-2014. For four days, about 140 enterprises and organizations from 23 countries demonstrated their latest developments and tried to interest potential buyers. To accommodate the stands of all exhibitors, the organizers of the exhibition had to use the skating stadium of the cultural and sports complex "Minsk Arena". The exhibition closed on July 12 and its results are already known. Chairman of the State Committee for the Defense Industry of the Republic of Belarus, Sergei Gurulev, stated that during the MILEX-2012 exhibition, contracts worth a total of 700 million US dollars were signed. Thanks to the exhibition in the foreseeable future, new billion-dollar agreements may be signed.

Companies and organizations from 23 countries took part in the exhibition, but mostly they were Belarusian and Russian enterprises. Moreover, the topic of Russian-Belarusian cooperation has once again become the leitmotif of the MILEX exhibition. Indeed, the industry of the two countries is interested in cooperation and has a lot of industrial relations. According to some data, about a hundred Belarusian enterprises supply Russia with about two thousand items of various products used in the defense industry. In addition, several hundred types of products are shipped from Russia to 70 Belarusian enterprises. For the further development of relations between the defense plants of the two countries, as noted by Belarusian Prime Minister Mikhail Myasnikovich, it is necessary not only to cooperate, but to create joint ventures.

At the MILEX-2014 exhibition, the Belarusian industry showed the Halberd anti-aircraft missile system. This system is a further development of the Pechora-2BM complex, created on the basis of the Soviet-made obsolete S-125 air defense system. The use of new equipment built on modern elemental base has significantly improved the performance of missiles and ground equipment. So far, testing of the new complex continues, but the management of GVTUP "Belspetsvneshtekhnika", which deals with the supply of weapons and military equipment to foreign customers, claims that there are already orders for the supply of a dozen and a dozen air defense systems "Halberd". In the future, the number of orders should increase. Belarusian specialists intend not only to sell such equipment, but also to prepare future operators for it. Developing countries in Asia, Africa and South America that need low-cost weapons with high performance are considered as potential buyers of the “Halibard” air defense missile system.

It should be noted, the “Alebarda” air defense missile system will be built using Russian components. Moreover, air defense systems are one of the main areas of military-technical cooperation between the two countries. This statement was made by the head of the Rosoboronexport delegation Valery Varlamov. The main reason for this official called the general air defense system of the two countries. Russia and Belarus supply each other the necessary components, as well as modernize the already supplied equipment. The development of military-technical cooperation between the two countries is proceeding in accordance with the agreement signed in 2009. V. Varlamov said that in the near future a similar agreement between Russia and Kazakhstan may appear.

Cooperation with Russia is beneficial for neighboring countries. So, in the near future, the Belarusian military should receive four divisions of the air defense system of the C-300P family. The agreement on gratuitous transfer of this equipment was reached in the autumn of last year. As soon as all necessary documents are completed, the complexes will be transferred to Belarus. In addition, over the next few years, the Republic of Belarus may become the first foreign state to receive the newest C-400 air defense systems, which are currently supplied only to the Russian armed forces. However, a political decision is required to start such deliveries.

The head of the Belarusian State Committee on Military Industry spoke about plans for cooperation with the Russian United Aircraft Corporation. Belarusian leadership intends to develop enterprises related to aviation industry. By September, it is planned to prepare a plan for the development of the industry, which will be coordinated with similar Russian plans. Belarus intends to produce various components, which will strengthen production ties, as well as create new jobs.

At the MILEX-2014 exhibition, the BAK-100 unmanned aerial system with the Grif-1 UAV was presented for the first time. Several Belarusian enterprises, headed by the 558th aircraft repair plant, were involved in the creation of the complex. Light UAV "Grif-1" has a flight range of up to 100 km and is designed to perform tasks related to surveillance and reconnaissance. The device is equipped with a complex of optical and laser equipment. An interesting feature of the Grif-1 UAV is the ability to operate without the use of satellite navigation systems, which can be useful in real combat conditions. At the site of the MILEX-2014 exhibition, the BAK-100 complex, located on a car chassis, was shown. Several containers with drones and the necessary equipment.

The Russian corporation Uralvagonzavod presented several of its developments at the MILEX-2014 exhibition. In an open area, the upgraded T-72 tank was shown. With the installation of new equipment, the characteristics and combat qualities of the machine were improved. The upgraded tank passed the full test cycle provided for by the standards of the Russian armed forces. The proposed project may be of interest to a wide range of countries operating combat vehicles of the T-72 family. In addition to the modernized tank The Uralvagonzavod T-72 brought mock-ups of the T-90 tank, BMPT tank support vehicle, the IMR-3M engineering demolition vehicle, the MTU-72 bridge-laying machine, as well as numerous advertising materials to Minsk.

A small exhibition took place in the open area of ​​the MILEX-2014 salon, which was of interest not for specialists, but for lovers of military equipment. Cars, tanks and combat vehicles from the Great Patriotic War were displayed in a separate parking lot.

            In any case, this is a relatively inexpensive air defense system that can cover a specific stationary object. Moreover, integrated into the country's air defense system. And mobility is for air defense troops, which is very important on the march.
            I do not see the futility of this complex.

        For example, it would have failed Boeing no worse than the Buk. Of course, a modern fighter can only fail if they completely forget about electronic warfare, although there is an F-117 on its account.
        But I somehow like the Polish version with PU on the T-55 chassis, and the CHP on the MAZ-543 chassis somehow looks more mobile, and most importantly, is passable than the semi-trailer.

      I support the land for 100. If Russia had not tried to use from time to time the prices of supplied energy carriers as a tool for obtaining certain benefits (for example, for the privatization of certain tidbits of the Belarusian industry by individual Russian oligarchs), and also went on really close cooperation in creating and the use of a number of products manufactured in Belarus, then in general there would be an "oil painting". This applies to Belarusian tractors, vehicles and communications and command and control equipment, microelectronics, information display equipment, optical and optoelectronic devices and much more, where Belarus has vast experience, not sickly groundwork and very professional personnel. Well, there is no need to blame Belarus for its desire to maintain good relations with all its close and distant neighbors. even if one of the neighbors has a temporary clouding of consciousness. Consciousness will sooner or more become clear, but it may be too late to correct the relationship.

      I sympathize with Belarus. I had to travel through Belarus to Ukraine. Pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, well-groomed roads and order. There are no abandoned villages and overgrown fields. It is outrageous that in the Russian media about Belarus either nothing or negative. They try to form a negative image of neighbors and their terrible President. I myself take information about Belarus and the Internet.
      The story, which has already become an ancient myth about the transfer of the second-hand "S300P" to Belarus, is not the most modern one for today stretches back to the times when the LADY was the guarantor. Everything is transmitted and transmitted. Last time a month ago, Shoigu amused him by saying that after the documents were signed, they would be handed over immediately. Who is stopping to sign and transfer? There is no Serdyukov, LADIES are not a guarantor, but the same sense. In the article, the transfer date is listed as "in the near future." Straight English grammar, verb form in an indefinite future. But we are talking about the security of the western direction of Russia from the strikes of NATO aviation.
      It is clear that some "activists" with impunity do their best to slow down any positive attitude towards Belarus, even to the detriment of Russia. However, the Belarusians not only did not destroy what they had, but on the contrary are developing. The enemies will disappear, but the brotherhood will remain. You can't gobble up daddy without shit. With horseradish too.

    Well, and the restraining factor, of course, the Army is not a lesson, but a long-term education, and the study of the experience of military tactics, and constant modernization.
