Ukraine Defense Industry will present its new main battle tank T-84 Oplot at IDEX 2011.
The Oplot, a tank designed and manufactured by Kharkiv-based Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau (eastern Ukraine), will be presented at the 10th international defense exhibition IDEX 2011 in Abu Dhabi on February 20-24.

According to UKRINFORM, Ukraine will also exhibit its new BTR-4 wheeled armored personnel carriers.

The general designer on the creation of armored vehicles and artillery systems, Lt. Gen. Mykhailo Borysiuk, said that Oplot tanks and BTR-4 armored personnel carriers were "modern vehicles that are competitive on the world market and are in demand among foreign customers." He noted that the Oplot had been added to the arsenal of the Ukrainian army in 2009 and that its mass production had started at Malyshev Plant in Kharkiv.

According to Ukrainian mass media, Azerbaijan is interested in purchasing Oplot tank and the Defense Ministry of Ukraine has long been holding negotiations on this issue.

The Defense Ministry ordered the first batch of ten tanks. The price of the contract, which was concluded in 2009, is UAH 295 million (UAH 7.96 / USD 1).

In 2009, Ukraine signed a contract with Iraq on the supply of 420 BTR-4 wheeled armored personnel carriers until March 2012. Malyshev Plant is a co-executor of the contract.
