An interview by CEO of the leading German military concern Rheinmetall AG Klaus Eberhardt to the newspaper Rheinische Post over promising sale markets, among which he named Russia, entailed an avalanche of comments in Germany, the Nezavisimaya Gazeta daily reported.
For Russia the cooperation with Rheinmetall AG can hardly be called accidental, the newspaper believes, noting that this is the implementation of the project to build a combat training centre of the Russian Ground Troops on the premises of the Gorokhovets firing range in Mulino, the Nizhny Novgorod Region.
The combat training centre, which is to be commissioned in the middle of 2014, will include 3D simulators, which imitate the movement and the gunfire, laser mock-up targets, which are placed on military hardware and other modern training equipment.
Certainly, the cooperation with the largest military hardware producer in the West will hardly be limited only with mocked military hardware models, the newspaper said with confidence. The military concern is known to produce some wheeled vehicles, which are used in the troops along with weapons. Now some models of combat armoured vehicles are passing trials in the Russian army. A possible purchase of the tanks Leopard for the Russian army should hardly be considered, because Russia has its own developments of armoured vehicles for the future as well as considerable production capacities for its production. But German logistics deserves a closer attention. For instance, the interest can be primarily evoked by such advanced individual outfits of a serviceman of the infantry as, for instance, system Glaudius.
Not only the German military concern decides to maintain military cooperation with Russia. The most important thing is an attitude of the federal government to it. The fact that they gave the green light to Russia, is a hopeful factor, the Nezavisimaya Gazeta daily reported.
