The exhibition will feature a dynamic display of robots, unmanned aerial vehicles and other samples of weapons and special equipment.
In Rostov-on-Don, visitors will see the BTR-82AM armored personnel carrier, the KAMAZ-63968 Typhoon-K vehicle, a combat vehicle of the Chrysanthemum anti-tank missile complex and other samples of weapons of the Russian army.
