MOSCOW, April 13. /TASS/. Russia’s Defense Ministry has accepted Terminator tank support combat vehicles for service and started their serial deliveries to the troops, Uralvagonzavod defense manufacturer reported on Friday.
"The tank support combat vehicle dubbed the Terminator has been accepted for service and is being serially delivered to the Russian army. The first batch of vehicles has already been handed over to the military," the company said.
The contract on the delivery of Terminator tank support combat vehicles to the troops was signed by Russia’s Defense Ministry and Uralvagonzavod at the Army-2017 arms exhibition. As a source in the Russian defense sector told TASS, ten such vehicles have already been delivered to the troops and they will take part in the Victory Parade on Moscow’s Red Square on May 9.
Uralvagonzavod has demonstrated the Terminator at the Defexpo India 2018 arms show, which runs in India’s Chennai. India’s Defense Minister Nirmala Sitharaman viewed the tank support combat vehicle on Uralvagonzavod’s stand at the exhibition.
The Terminator is armed with two 30mm guns, a large-caliber machine-gun and the Ataka-T anti-tank system. The vehicle is designed to provide fire support for the armor in an offensive, in particular, to neutralize an enemy’s manpower armed with mobile anti-tank systems.
