Hostages freed and terrorists disarmed … in military display

The latest arms available to military and civilian security forces are on show, just outside Moscow.

Spectators had the chance to see an anti-terror demonstration, an airborne landing and intensive firing practice. Small arms, grenade launchers and portable missile launchers were used.

Rolled out for the display, were Tiger and Kamaz armored vehicles and armored troop carriers. Police and military helicopters took to the air.

The Interpolitech-2010 exhibition, at a military training ground, aims to show the equipment on offer to ensure state security.

The three-day event combines four international exhibitions which include displays of police and defense technology, technical systems and facilities for border security, as well as medical equipment.

It is one of the largest events of its kind in Russia and is supported by the Russian government.
