Belarus presents latest military industry developments for air defence

Every year more than 25 units of special equipment and machinery goes into service in Belarus.  

The airfield of the 61st Fighter Air Base has turned into a kind of exhibition hall.

In addition to upgraded anti-aircraft missile systems and attack aviation some promising weaponry was also on display.  In particular, communication and enemy detection systems. 

Oleg Dvigalev, Commander of the Air Force and Air Defence of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Belarus:
The capabilities of our companies are very large. They not only upgrade the equipment we have but also work closely with companies from the Russian Federation. But whatever quality and modern machinery we may have, the main thing is people. Trained professionals. If an officer and a soldier learned their responsibilities, the machinery and weapons, he can complete the tasks.  

Belarus is actively retraining territorial defense forces. Every year more than 7,000 reservists taking part in various drills. The priority is the creation of a permanent mobile division. It will consist of four mechanized brigades with a total strength of up to 10,000 people.
