KOLOMNA, July 23 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has arrived in Kolomna on a working trip to visit the local Engineering Design Bureau (KBM), visit the company’s ranged to familiarise himself with military equipment samples and observe testing of tanks’ defensive aid suite.
This year, the Kolomna-base enterprise marked 70 years since foundation. In 1942, it was engaged mainly in the production of mortars and bomb throwers, and in 1956 transferred to rocket design. At present, KBM is the main enterprise designing man-portable air defence systems, antitank missile systems and defensive aid suites for armoured and other vehicles. KBM in 2006 delivered for the RF army the Iskander-M tactical missile system. The enterprise produces the Igla and Strela MANPADS. Several years ago, the company delivered the Khrizantema-S all-weather self-propelled antitank missile system having no analogues in the world. The Strelets launcher for firing rockets from various technical facilities was designed by it.
The company designs the Arena defensive aide suite for tanks for the protection of armoured vehicles against anti-tank missiles and grenade launchers.
