After the official opening, which took place on Monday, August 23, numerous negotiations between customers and manufacturers of military equipment, meetings with foreign delegations, various forums and round tables began in the Patriot Park. And, of course, the demonstration of new products continued. Not only combat shooting systems were presented, but also equipment for non-military purposes.

In particular, drones that can detect and extinguish forest fires at the earliest stage. This is already a well-known "Orion" and an unmanned helicopter BVS-VT450. They will be able to extinguish fires together and prevent their spread. This was told to Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Yuri Borisov by the general director of the Kronstadt enterprise, where unmanned aerial vehicles are developed and produced, Sergey Bogatikov.

According to him, now a whole line of helicopters is being created from 350 kg of take-off weight to 1.5 tons. Work is underway on the simultaneous use of helicopters and Orion UAVs from one point. The idea is that Orion performs reconnaissance of the area over large territories, identifies fire centers, and the helicopter performs an operation to extinguish local foci.

The new scheme of operation of drones will allow you to see the incipient fire, fix and localize it, preventing its spread.

For a long time, the two-link D-30 all-terrain vehicle could not break into the troops. And now it is one of the most popular cars, especially in the Arctic zone. All-terrain vehicles are used as transport vehicles and as a chassis for the Tor-M2DT and Pantsir-SA air defense systems. On the basis of two-link all-terrain vehicles, KA-250/30PM field kitchens began to be manufactured, specifically for the Arctic. They were demonstrated for the first time at the Army-2021 forum.

The crawler kitchen is equipped with modern ovens, in which, if necessary, you can warm up semi-finished products, bake pies or bread. There are also three large boilers that are used for simultaneous preparation of soups, porridges, other main dishes, as well as hot drinks. There is a convenient table for kneading dough, cutting ingredients for dishes, vegetables or fruits. All kitchen equipment is made of stainless steel. It is served by only four people who will feed 250 servicemen in the harsh field conditions of the northern latitudes. By the way, all-terrain kitchens can be used to feed not only the military, but also civilians working in remote northern areas.

In addition, during the Army 2020 forum, the first major contracts were signed today with the main customer - the Russian Defense Ministry. Earlier, the military reported that they intend to sign contracts for 500 billion rubles.
