    Serbia to Export Weapons to Iraq


    Serbia's state-owned Jugoimport SDPR defense company has signed a €70 million deal for the export of weapons and military equipment to Iraq, daily Blic reports Friday.

    Serbian Defense Minister Dragan Sutanovac revealed that the deal was agreed during a recent visit to Iraq by a ministry delegation.

    “This contract means job for all of [the] six Serbian military industry factories [which] employ around 6,000 people,” the daily quoted Sutanovac as saying.

    In late 2007, Jugoimport inked a deal with Iraq on the delivery of over €160 million worth of Serbian defence industry products.

    The newly-signed contract is the largest export arrangement that Serbia has concluded this year. The US-led international coalition in Iraq has given Baghdad permission to deal with Serbia.

    Blic says that talks are ongoing concerning the expansion of the arrangement and the contracting of Serbian construction companies in renovating several military bases and hospitals in Iraq.

    Sutanovac stressed that several other international contracts, involving Serbian construction firms, are expected to be concluded by year's end.

    The daily’s ministry source reveals that the new deals may be penned for work in Libya, Algeria, Egypt and Central African states.

    Seems that Serbian defense industries are on the ball. I did always like Serbia's tank upgrade potentials. The M-2001 (T-90 style tank) was quite nice. This looks far better. Would like to see more of it and even in service. Possibly fantastic upgrade for current T-72's and M-84 tanks.

    Serbia Develops State-of-the-Art, Armata-Style Battle Tank

    Serbia has presented a concept of the М-20UP-1, the country's "tank of the future", at the Partner 2015 military exhibition in Belgrade. Designers said that they were inspired by the Russian-made Armata tank when developing the М-20UP-1, according to the Serbian news website Vecernje Novosti Online.

    The project cost of the production of one M-20UP-1 stands at five million euros.

    Goran Stojanovic, head of the working group to develop the tank, said that the М-20UP-1 will not compete with the Armata tank.

    "Our tank will be closer to the [Russian-made] T-90 tank in terms of combat capabilities. We are short of money, and our economic potential is not developed enough to let us compete with the Russians. But by using a design [resembling] those of advanced tanks across the world, we have developed the weapon of the future: cheap, modern and efficient," Stojanovic said.

    Really interesting how similar it is to the design that speculated Armata design we saw leading up before the reveal. Did the Serbians build a completely new tank ground up or did they use existing systems?

    They've managed to knock-out a prototype of a tank with a crew armoured capsule and complete automation like the Armata; within barely a few months of the Armata being revealed?
    Gotta be some kind of record.

    Good to see that Serbia's tank-production technology hasn't decayed; actually I'm very impressed - they're far ahead of everyone else it seems.

    From what I know, the chassis is an extended version of the M-90 Vihor's and the gun will be 2A46-based.

    It seems like most everything is an upgrade of equipment Serbia has used on tanks... My question is how well the FCS will perform. 

    Their predicted specifications were not all that impressive.

    EDePro unveils the new SPIDER anti-armor guided missile system
    International Fair of Armaments and Defence Equipmen 23 - 26 June 2015 Belgrade, Serbia

    EDePro's range of missiles has been officially enlarged at PARTNER 2015 exhibition with the addition of the new Spider guided missile system. EDePro's new Spider is a fiber optic guided "man in the loop" tactical missile capable to reach targets at range up to 9 km.

    The Spider missile system is graded as a tactical NLOS system for back up of infantry action whose primary device is modern guided projectile with its own propulsion. Spider system is designed for battlefield isolation and anti-armor combat at distances up to 9 km.

    The missile is equipped with an imaging infrared seeker. The missile uses a tandem warhead – two shaped charges, a precursor warhead to detonate any explosive reactive armor and a primary warhead to penetrate the underlying armor. The Spider missile tandem warhead can penetrate up to 1000 mm RHA (rolled homogeneous armor).

    Spider missile is powered by a solid proppellant boost engine (2400N of thrust) during booster phase and by a solid propellant sustainer engine (240N) for the main propulsion. During booster phase, the Spider missile reachs a flight speed of 200 m/s.

    It has a maximum range of 9 km. It has a total length of 1.8 m a body diameter of 0.14 m. The missile has a weight of 45 kg at launch and 35 kg in flight. The Spider missile inertial opening main wings provide compact deployment into launching container set.

    The missile is stored in a launch canister, which provides storage for fifteen years without preventive maintenance. Mounted on its launch platform, the Spider missile is ready to fire.

    The launch platform can be integrated on different systems as ground vehicle, small ship or helicopter, depending on user request. According to EDePro's official, the Spider is currently adapted to be fitted on aerial platforms such helicopters for air-to-air combat use.

    This wouldn't be compatible with older chassis... ie it is a new vehicle and not an upgrade. 

    Possibly a few test chassis for the Vihor of which this tank is built, could be used (lengthed w/ an extra road wheel).

    That ATGM looks pretty nice, but what do they mean by NLOS (I know what that stands for but fiber optic guided typically wouldn't match up with it).

    I am pretty sure I read it as a deep upgrade to M84. And it wouldnt surprise me as I seen the PUkrainians lengthen, highten and strengthen T-62 and T-64 chassis.

    If not, and it is brand new all around, I am more impressed with Serbian defense industry than any other.

    UAE investments in Serbia
    An agreement worth up to $200mn was signed between the Serbian arms company Yugoimport SDPR and the UAE’s Emirates Advanced Research and Technology Holding (EARTH) at the International Defence Exhibition in Abu Dhabi last year.

    A source in Serbia told MEE the investment relates to the Serbian missile system ALAS (Advanced Light Attack System), which is a “multipurpose anti-armour weapon with effective range up to 60km”. The source said the UAE is interested in these missiles because “they should be able to destroy all existing models of tanks in the world”.

    The UAE is the fourth largest arms importer in the world, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, and spent over $19bn on military equipment in 2012. With a national population of fewer than one million the UAE, in terms of arms per capita, is now widely viewed as being the most heavily armed nation on the planet.

    The UAE-Serbian defence relationship is becoming increasingly close, according to the Serbian source, who said “initial forms of cooperation have been established at the level of military security agencies, military police and special units, and in the fields of information and communication technologies and cyber defence”.

    While the source said the UAE is primarily interested in Serbia’s burgeoning defence industry, the Emiratis have also made numerous other investments across several industries.

    One of the most prominent deals has been Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways buying a 49 percent stake in Serbia’s lossmaking JAT Airways in August 2013. A new company was born out of that investment, Air Serbia, with the stated aim of creating an eastern European transportation sub-hub.

    Kvadrat-ML 2K12-ML new Serbian upgraded version of Soviet-made 2K12 KUB air defense system
    International Fair of Armaments and Defence Equipment 23 - 26 June 2015 Belgrade, Serbia

    Currently, the Serbian army uses the Soviet-made SA-6 Gainful (2K12 KUB) as standard air defense missile system. At Partner 2015, the International Defense Exhibition in Belgrade, the Serbian Defense Company Litaktak presents an upgraded version of the standard SA-6 under the name of Kvadrat-ML or 2K12-ML.

    The upgraded 2K12-ML Surface-To-Air (SAM) System (Kvadrat-ML) features improved performance and extended functional capabilities due to new algorithms of data processing and displaying, digital signal processing with software based MTI and automatic data readout and processing. 2K12-ML is offered as the upgraded follow-on to 2K12M1.

    The new 2K12 upgrade is able to detect and destroy low-flying targets including VLO (“stealth”). Improved operation in jamming conditions, in presence of reflections from underlying surface.

    Equipment is designed to continuously operate for 48 hours with one hour rest time;
    All components, panels, units and modules are designed as replaceable units and can be easily replaced with spare ones.

    System provides automatic operational monitoring and functional check. Checks are performed each time Engagement Radar Vehicle starts or at any time as requested by operator.

    System is equipped with the simulator enabling training of combat crews in realistic conditions including simulation of ECM (Electronic countermeasure) applied by the enemy.

    The new system is able to detect aircraft at a maximum altitude of 7 km to a maximum range 100 km. It can also detect cruise missile at a maximum altitude from 3 to 7 km at a maximum range of 25 km. The 2K12-ML can destroy target from a minimum range of 3.4 km to a maximum range 25 km with an altitude from 250 m to 14 km.

    Bumbar short-range portable anti-tank missile highlighted at PARTNER 2015
    International Fair of Armaments and Defence Equipment 23 - 26 June 2015 Belgrade, Serbia

    Officially in service in the Serbian armed forces since 2012, the Bumbar (Bumble-bee) always attracts much attention from visitors and foreign delegations when it is showcased at defense shows. At PARTNER 2015, the Bumbar is particulary highlighted on Serbian army's display. The Bumbar is a short-range portable anti-tank missile system developed and produced by the Serbian company Krusik.

    The Bumbar is a wire guided, man-portable, short-ranged missile system for use against ground targets. The missile has a soft launch capability - the main motor firing after the missile has left the launcher, which allows for the missile to be fired from confined spaces, which is a necessity in urban warfare. During the flight rocket is maneuvered by unique system of thrust vectoring.

    The Bumbar features tandem hollow charge warhead, capable to destroy modern tanks with reactive homogenous armor. It is also equipped with SACLOS guidance (Semi-automatic command to line of sight), improved anti-jamming protection based on sequential frames differential processing, and frequency, time and space discrimination.

    Bumbar guided missile has all terrains fighting capabilities including urban areas, missile can be launched from confined space. The launcher can be shoulder mounted or fitted on a tripod. The weapon has a total weight of 19.8 kg, the tripod and the firing post weight 4 kg each. It has a maximum range of 600 m and a hit probability of 90%.

    The missile is propelled by two main rocket motor exhaust vanes located at mid body. As the missile rotates the launch units send signals commanding the correction by one of the two vanes to move against the missile motors thrust. For example if the missile has to move to the left, the right thrust vector vane will actuate at the correct time. The warhead penetration is over 1000 mm RHA behind ERA. The missile has a speed of 18 m/s at launch and 245 m/s at maximum.

    The Bumbar missile system is currently being improved in order to increase maximum range up to 1,000 m and with the addition of a laser beam riding.

    EDePro presents the new ALAS-C coastal defense missile system
    International Fair of Armaments and Defence Equipment 23 - 26 June 2015 Belgrade, Serbia

    During PARTNER 2015, the Serbia-based company EDePro presented a new variant of its Advanced Light Attack System (ALAS) dedicated to coastal defense. The ALAS-C (Advanced Light Attack System-Coastal) is a fire & forget multipurpose weapon system, intended for coastal defense and OTHT (Over-The-Horizon Targeting) in all operations occuring in naval environment.

    The original ALAS system was developed from the Long-Range Advanced Non Line-of-Sight Attack System (LORANA), which was conceived as a long-range, wire-guided, anti-tank missile with a solid motor.

    However, interest from the UAE led to the weapon being developed into a land-based, light anti-ship missile with a turbojet motor that pushes its range out to 25 kilometres. The new version is the product of a joint development and integration agreement with Emirates Advanced Research & Technology Holding (EARTH) that was announced at IDEX 201 defense exhibition.

    The ALAS-C is highly effective in missions to destroy/incapacitate inflatable boats and small vessels within maximum range of 25 km.

    EDePRo's ALAS-C missile is a cable guided missile that in real time links electro optical sensor (TV CCD or IIR homing head) mounted on the nose section of the missile to the operator on the ground via an optical fiber in the real time. This fiber optics technology allows the operator to engage the target from non-line-of site positions, and to continuously watch it through the electro optical sensors of the approaching missile.

    The terminal attack phase is based on an autonomous terminal guidance using advanced TV/IIR homing head with improved target selection capabilities in complex scenarios. The ALAS-C has a weight of 67 kg. It is fitted with a 10kg blast fragmentation warhead.

    The capabilities of ALAS-C missile (short reaction time, Fire and Forget, INS/GPS navigation, high target selection, and warhead lethality) allow the system to operate effectively in littoral warfare environments, as well as in blue waters within a reaction time of less than one minute. It flies at an altitude between 50 m and 1,000 m to make it harder to detect.

    ALAS-C missile can be launched from land vehicles, small ships or helicopters. A battery of ALAS-C systems will be equipped with a vehicle-mounted radar and electrical-optical sensors to acquire targets. A launcher vehicle will then fire one of its six missiles in the direction of the target. As the missile approaches, the operator can verify the target using the feed from its electro-optical sensor, which can be either a TV or infrared camera, depending on the situation.

    They've got some interesting projects but it all requires substantial government investment which so far hasn't been forthcoming. Occasionaly they've scored a few export contracts which is what has kept things going.

    As far as this new M-20 MBT concept goes, it's by an independent company which includes some of the people that took part in the M-84 project back in the 1980's so it's not an official government project. They believe it's feasible IF the government is serious about rebuilding the military industry. The tank is to feature a few novelties (such as a advanced exhaust system for low IR signature) and is suppose to be eqipped with modified Relikt ERA and have the 2A46M-5 125mm gun

    The M5 gun would be a step in the wrong direction for a new platform... Maybe Russia could give them the license for the 2A82-1M.

    It will be interesting to see what ammunition it fires...

    The 2A82-1M is not even fielded yet by Russia. Would be kinda odd to give a competitor a state of the art cannon system. Then again, it seems to feature a modified Relikt ERA so I assume they have license for that. I would like to see 2A82-1M used on more than one platform of course though.

    That said, this tank looks quite amazing, and depending on the price, could be a great alternative for many countries to field a fairly modern tank. Especially when the only real competition t Russia's price to performance is the Chinese MBT2000/3000 tanks which of course, are not really that satisfactory in performance/quality from what I hear.

    True... Serbia could also perform an indigenous upgrade with a longer barrel and higher pressure chamber. Though once again, everything boils down to the ammunition. Unless they get their hands on Vacuum (which they... absolutely shouldn't), Serbia will be stuck with older rounds or the process of developing a new one.

    For the export market this vehicle will be a game changer, especially if Russia witholds the export of T-14 for a while.

    I'm guessing the 2A82 isn't available for export, while the M-5 could be used to upgrade existing M-84's (with some other T-90 elements as well) which is a more realistic scenario in the short term

    Serbia Develops State-of-the-Art, Armata-Style Battle Tank

    Serbia has presented a concept of the М-20UP-1, the country's "tank of the future", at the Partner 2015 military exhibition in Belgrade. Designers said that they were inspired by the Russian-made Armata tank when developing the М-20UP-1, according to the Serbian news website Vecernje Novosti Online.

    The project cost of the production of one M-20UP-1 stands at five million euros.

    Goran Stojanovic, head of the working group to develop the tank, said that the М-20UP-1 will not compete with the Armata tank.

    "Our tank will be closer to the [Russian-made] T-90 tank in terms of combat capabilities. We are short of money, and our economic potential is not developed enough to let us compete with the Russians. But by using a design [resembling] those of advanced tanks across the world, we have developed the weapon of the future: cheap, modern and efficient," Stojanovic said.

    From what I can tell turret will be easiest part because it looks like it is comprised of components that are already available. Some in prototype form, others as off the shelf products.

    Rest of it might be trickier but it is doable. Main difficulty will be getting douchebags in MoD to sign orders. Our defence firms have loads of stuff ready to go: new MRLS, MRAPs, MANPADS, ATGMs, drones,SAMs... list goes on.

    Tech is not the problem, getting politicians to shell out the cash is angry

    I would love to see this project taking off. It will never be near Armata but it is not supposed to. It will be more than good enough for Serbia and other countries in our weight class.

    Our guys are long overdue for some shopping and they definitely deserve this new hog. thumbsup
