Russia may showcase its new main battle tank (MBT), the T-95 at the arms show in the Urals Region in summer 2010, a media report said.
"The work on the project has been conducted for many years. If the government gives us a 'green light' we will exhibit the tank at the [Russian Expo Arms 2010] arms show in Nizhny Tagil this summer," RIA Novosti quoted General Director of the Uralvagonzavod plant Oleg Siyenko as saying.
"I cannot disclose the characteristics of the tank, but I can assure you that we have met all the requirements put forward by the military," he said.
The new main battle tank (MBT) will weigh about 55 tons and its speed will increase from 30-50 kph to 50-65 kph (19-31 mph to 31-40 mph). It may be also equipped with a 152-mm smoothbore gun capable of firing guided missiles with a range of 6,000-7,000 meters, the report said.
