Belarusian Delegation Studies Serbia’s New Defence Products
A delegation of the Belarusian State Authority for Military Industry, led by its First Deputy Minister Igor Demidenko, paid a visit to Serbia, following an invitation from Serbian Defence Minister Aleksandar Vulin. The goal of the visit was to have a look at the latest Serbian defence products and study their technical and operational characteristics.
On 18 April, the Nikinci range near Belgrade saw demonstration firing from Serbian-made self-propelled artillery pieces, multiple launch rocket systems and guided missiles, as well as a presentation of an artillery fire control system.
The guests from Belarus, Hungary, Slovenia and Greece could see the armament and military equipment, manufactured by Serbia’s Military Technical Institute, the country’s defence industry and Yugoimport company. These included small arms, optical-electronic surveillance systems, armoured vehicles, ground robotic platforms, guided missile systems, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and short-range anti-aircraft artillery systems, including counter-UAV ones.
Speaking about the importance of the demonstration, Nenad Miloradovic, Ph.D., Assistant Minister for Material Resources, mentioned that the Serbian defence ministry was energetically cooperating with a number of partner countries on all continents.
“We are regularly exchanging information, primarily technical data, to give start to cooperation on certain joint projects. For several partner states, we have organised this demonstration of the most important types of weapons and systems, which are now entering service with the Serbian army and may be of interest to our partners,” said Nenad Miloradovic.
