Russian Air Force to boost its combat potential by new sighting systems produced in Yekaterinburg
Yuri Borisov, the Deputy Defence Minister, arrived in the city of Yekaterinburg, where he visited the Urals Optical & Mechanical Plant (‘Shvabe’ Holding Company, a part of ‘Rostec’ Corporation).
As he briefed the reporters, the Russian Army Aviation will advance due to new sighting systems produced by the enterprise.
These are electro-optical sighting systems, laser rangers that now determine combat potential of aircraft.
The equipment developed by the plant has been tested in Syria by Russian combat aircraft.
The Urals Optical & Mechanical Plant (UOMP) is involved in developing and producing electro-optical sighting systems for various purposes, as well as surveying instruments and measuring equipment.
