The enterprise is currently engaged in fulfilling the state defense order to equip Russian armor, including the latest one, with advanced communication complexes. "We have already reequipped and continue to equip the existing hardware: howitzers Coalition, Msta, Gvozdika, Tulip, Acacia, as well as the latest 2S35 Coalition-SV, 2S19 MSTA-S and BMD-4 with modern communication means. They are capable of operating at temperatures from minus 50 to plus 50 degrees also in conditions of the Arctic," he said.

Gusev stressed that the new communication complex is a fully domestic design of the Nizhny Novgorod enterprise which specializes in the production of such devices. "From the point of view of import replacement the unit is fully produced from made-in-Russia components. As for today its functional capabilities cover all the needs of mentioned arms of troops," he said.

The complex consists of a radio station and internal communications and commutation system which receives outside signal, topographic data and other necessary information for the crew during combat and allows them to communicate between themselves.

"The new design is distinguished by high functionality, reliability (service life of up to 25 years), minimal size and convenient interface. A tankee can connect with the radio station, field telephone and communicate with all crewmembers with one touch of a hand even in gloves," Gusev said adding the equipment was produced upon demand of domestic armor designers. He said his company production was worth 1 billion rubles last year of which 90 percent were state defense orders. This year the state defense order grew 25 percent.
