Best of the best from the world’s defence industries at IDEX-2021 | The Kalashnikova Show. Episode 28

In this special episode, you’ll meet representatives of the best weapons manufacturers from around the world at the IDEX International Defence Exhibition and Conference in Abu Dhabi. Hundreds of participants come to IDEX to show off their latest tech. In 2021, Russia presented nearly 400 items, including a T-14 Armata tank, an MP-155 Ultima smart shotgun, and the AK-19 assault rifle.

The T-14 Armata is a next-generation tank armed with a 125mm gun housed in an unmanned turret. It is stocked with 45 rounds of ammunition. The tank is also equipped with advanced systems that protect it from even precision weapons.

The MP-155 Ultima is the first Russian-made smart shotgun. This futuristic weapon, with its HD camera and LCD display, can synchronise with your iPhone. The Kalashnikov Group also showcased its new AK-19 assault rifle, which has been adapted to meet NATO’s caliber standards. Based on the AK-12, the AK-19 has a 415mm barrel and comes with a 30-round magazine.

The Kalashnikova Show also takes a look at some drone innovations, including the Kupol-PRO and Repellent anti-drone devices.
