The latter two were first seen publicly at ARMY-2020.
According to Alexander Zakharov, the Director General of JSC Remdizel, "The international Military-Technical Forum ARMY-2020 has turned out to be a unique event for the current year taking into account the cancellation of many exhibitions due to the coronavirus pandemic. We note that both Russian and potential foreign customers are highly interested in our products. On the territory of the forum, we were able to carry out a number of negotiations, business meetings, often together with JSC Rosoboronexport. The trend for wheeled protected equipment is taken more and more seriously, which speaks of a truly serious attitude towards the life of any person on a combat mission. "’
This year Remdizel also focused on its proven line of business - overhaul of KAMAZ and Ural vehicles. As an official supplier of this type of service to the Russian Ministry of Defence, from 2009 to 2020, the company a unique experience has been accumulated in organising the repair process on the ground with the help of mobile brigades to military units throughout Russia.
According to Zakharov, interest was equally high in both wheeled vehicles and the MGTT-LB tractor. “This is due to new technical solutions used in these machines, as well as to market needs,” he said.
Based on the primary results of the Army 2020 forum, it can be concluded that enterprises of the defence industry in general tend to focus on diversification. Remdizel is considering some working projects, including civilian versions of vehicles.
