The IDEX-2021 arms exhibition started on February 21 in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. Russia brought to the UAE one of the copies of its main battle tank T-14 “Armata”, which “has no analogues in the world.”
This was reported in the publication Sprotyv.
In fact, Russia did not present a full-fledged copy, but its model, painted in desert camouflage.

Russia has long hinted at creating its own tank in 2021. But at the arms show, such a presentation was called a shameful and talkative false start.
According to official information, the “logistical obstacles” caused by the coronavirus pandemic did not allow to bring a full-fledged tank to the exhibition.
According to the organizers of the exhibition, if sanctions are imposed on Russia, the tank will be arrested and a patent for the creation of such weapons will be transferred to another country.
IDEX is one of the most representative international exhibitions of armaments and security technologies. Held under the patronage of Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, with the support of the government and the country’s armed forces. IDEX invariably attracts the increased attention of manufacturers and customers of armaments and military equipment.
