Modernization of MBT T-72 to the level of support combat vehicle tanks (BMPT) “Terminator” may be engaged in Azerbaijani enterprises, the newspaper said Look with reference to ITAR-TASS.
“Visiting the UVZ stand at the ADEX-2014 exhibition, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev noted that the modernization package, which allows turning the T-72 into the Terminator (Uralvagonzavod has already released its version of the Terminator-2), is easily accessible to the defense industry of Azerbaijan ", - said Oleg Sienko, general director of the corporation Uralvagonzavod, to the agency.
He stressed that Russian technical implementations will allow Azerbaijan to convert T-72 into Terminator at its facilities. “Modernization of the T-72 fleet is necessary everywhere, and not only in Azerbaijan. This is an obvious question. ”- stated the general director of UVZ.
The head of the Rosoboronexport delegation at the ADEX-2014 exhibition, Esen Topoev, told the publication that earlier the company had made a proposal to the Azerbaijani side to organize the modernization of the T-72 tank fleet.
“We presented the Uralvagonzavod products to the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev at a static site. We examined the BMPT-72 Terminator tank support vehicle and suggested that there is a sufficiently large fleet of T-72 tanks, to carry out their deep modernization to the BMPT level and consider further possibilities for developing this option.Said Topoev.
Last September, at the Russia Arms Ехро exhibition (Nizhny Tagil), an agreement on the creation of a joint venture for the production of BMPT on an equal footing was signed by Uralvagonzavod and Kazakhstan Engineering.
