The enterprises showcased their equipment, innovative developments and industry products.
SFTUE “Belspetsvneshtechnika” presented SAPPHIRE hand-held anti-tank grenade launcher at the exhibition.
SAPPHIRE grenade launcher is designed to be a game changer on the modern battlefield. A soldier has one weapon capable to fulfill multiple tasks. The lightweight single-use weapon can be used as a hand-held MLRS providing a new level of combat effectiveness. The MLRS mode can be used as a cluster consisting of 2 to 4 units depending on the physical abilities of a soldier.
Close combat warfare in urban area brings new challenges with multiple targets. A soldier must be flexible and less loaded with heavy weapons. The weight of the weapon plays a crucial role. The light weight of SAPPHIRE grenade launcher allows you to fire several grenades simultaneously, using the product as an MLRS with different firing modes, which increases its effectiveness.
Different types of targets are no longer a risk. One grenade - one solution for a rapidly changing combat situation. A multi-factor warhead is used simultaneously to fight personnel, structures and tanks with ERA in one shot.
