According to Uralvagonzavod, its subsidiary Burevestnik (a research institute in Nizhny Novgorod) will exhibit its designs at KADEX 2016 too.

"The exposition will include the 82-mm 2B24 mortar, 2B25 mortar and remote-controlled [fighting] modules. The corporation also will show its latest product - the 57-mm AU-220M automatic gun integrated with the BARYS 8x8 combat vehicle. The unmanned module is a remote-controlled 360-deg. traversing fighting system. There is no APC [armored personnel carrier] or an IFV [infantry fighting vehicle] capable to withstand a hit by the AU-220M," the press office added.

The Russian stand will exhibit the whole range of products, including the T-90MS tank, BMPT and BMPT-72 fire support vehicles, BMR-3MS armored mine-clearing vehicle, TOS-1A heavy self-propelled flamethrower, PTS-4 amphibious tracked carrier as well as IMR-3M combat engineer vehicle and MTU-72 armored bridgelayer.
