Russian Defense Vice Premier Dmitry Rogozin Visits The Nizhny Tagil Proving Ground



Vice Premier Dmitry Rogozin and the governor visited the Uralvagonzavod plant in Nizhny Tagil, where the legendary T-90 tanks are produced. Rogozin took a ride in a T-90A MBT, fired off several rounds, and was satisfied with the tank. The Vice Premier got to ride not only heavy armored vehicles, but light ones, as well, such as this motorcycle, and even took some passengers with him. Rogozin stated that these proving grounds are to become Russia’s center for testing and demonstrating new armored vehicles and that the grounds will be expanded and modernized. In addition, these grounds are where foreign tankers will be trained to use Russian tanks. “We have a huge export potential and we will expand it, and we will teach foreign crews to use the tanks here, who will then become instructors in the countries that operate our tanks,” stated Dmitry Rogozin. 23 trillion rubles will be allocated from the federal budget for the modernization of the Russian army. At least 10% of that money will go to the Uralvagonzavod plant.
