Over 18 thousand people attended the military-technical forum “Army-2020”, held at the Roshchinsky training ground in the Samara region.

The forum was organized in nine clusters, where the guests were able to get acquainted with the weapons and modern military equipment in service with the 2nd Combined Arms Army and the special forces unit of the Central Military District. More than 50 samples of combat equipment, weapons, military equipment of motorized rifle, tank, artillery and engineering units, as well as air defense and electronic warfare troops – all this forum visitors could independently hold in their hands or sit in the car.

The novelties of the forum were the newest Kalashnikov AK-12 assault rifle, a set of the Shturm universal tactical training system, a temporary road deployment kit (KVRD), as well as a CSKA aviation demonstration flight.

In addition, field kitchens were deployed at the forum, where military chefs prepared soldier’s porridge with meat, brewed tea and baked bread. In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection, medical posts were deployed at the entrance, at which the temperature was measured, hands were treated and, if necessary, medical masks were issued. There was also a mobile point for selecting citizens for contract service at the forum.

The ceremonial closing of the military-technical forum “Army-2020” took place at 15:00, during which the creative teams of the 2nd Combined Arms Army and the Samara Region performed before the guests.
