More than 1,100 types of military equipment will be showcased at an arms show in Russia’s Urals region on September 8-11, the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) said on Monday.

The Nizhny Tagil 2011 exhibition will host 64 Russian and 20 foreign defense companies. Thirty-two official delegations from 17 countries are expected to attend the event.

“A total of 1,102 military products, including 213 full-scale models, will be exhibited at the show,” the FSMTC said in a statement.

Russia will showcase for the first time its T-90AM main battle tank, BMD-4M airborne infantry fighting vehicle, BTR-82A wheeled armored personnel carrier, Tiger-M armored vehicle and Volk II and III armored vehicles.

The show will also feature Italian Iveco armored vehicles to be assembled in Russia under license starting in 2011.
