The traditional parade of the Great Victory, which is held May 9 in the heart of our homeland on the Red Square in Moscow, allows you to personally see the latest innovations in high-tech military equipment of domestic production. The parade of 2017 will not be an exception. Now the preparations for this event are in full swing, and we will slightly open the veil of secrecy and tell you what it will be possible to contemplate tomorrow.
The main theme of the Victory Parade – 2017 will be the Arctic complex, namely the "Pantsir-SA" and "Tor-M2DT" models. They have long been in the arsenal of the Russian army, but only on the parade-2017 will be demonstrated the latest modifications, designed specifically for use in the North. The Tor-M2DT and Pantsir-SA surface-to-air missile systems are made on the chassis of the DT-30PM-T1 caterpillar all-terrain vehicle Vityaz, which is well suited for operation in the Far North. These cars are not afraid of off-road, water obstacles, steep rises, as well as extremely low temperatures.
In addition, the main battle Russian T-72B3 tank will pass along Red Square with a new dynamic defense module. The modification of the T-72B3M was first introduced last year. This tank has improved the operation of the automatic loading system, significantly strengthened the engine, installed a new fire control system. Another novelty will be the armored cars Typhoon-K and Typhoon-U. "Typhoon-K" was developed by engineers at KAMAZ and provides protection to the crew and landing force when fired by cartridges of caliber 14.5 mm and even undermining on a land mine.
In the sky, too, will have something to look at! The aviation part of the parade will be attended by 17 helicopter and 55 aircraft crews. This transport Mi-26, accompanied by several Mi-8, as well as the newest Russian combat helicopters: Mi-28N "Night Hunter", Ka-52, Mi-35.
