MOSCOW, February 16. /TASS/. Russia’s Military Industrial Company will hold a virtual presentation of its new armor at the IDEX 2021 international arms show in Abu Dhabi on February 21-25, Company CEO Alexander Krasovitsky told TASS on Tuesday.

"This year, we want to hold an online presentation of any models that are of interest for our constant customers. For this purpose, a specialist of the Arzamas Machine-Building Plant (part of Military Industrial Company) will use modern communication technologies to demonstrate particular models at the enterprise’s demonstration hall," the chief executive said.

This format will help present new models of the Russian wheeled armor in a qualitative and detailed way amid the coronavirus pandemic, he said.
