Czech Army presents its new equipment durinbg a dynamic demonstration at IDET 2011.
The large exhibition of the Czech Ministry of Defence in Hall Z presents visitors with a collection of the latest and most advanced technology and equipment which the Czech Army currently operates at home and on foreign theatres.
It is the first IDET introduction for the wheeled armoured vehicle Pandur II 8x8, not only in its final form, but also in three stages of production with expert commentary. One of the most advanced armoured vehicles in Europe has been part of the ACR arsenal since 2009 and has been successfully deployed in missions in Kosovo and Afghanistan last year.
Outside hall Z, visitors can attend a dynamic demonstration involving several Czech Army vehicles. "Comparing with the past years of IDET, the Ministy of Defence puts greater emphasis on an entirely new technology this year. Thanks to its approach, we can show the Land Rover Defender 130 Kajman, or the Pandur II 8x8 armored vehicle. I consider the effort to show the latest and newest a correct and welcome approach that visitors to the exhibition can surely appreciate." said Milan Chalupa from the University of Defence in Brno who is managing the dynamique demonstration.
In addition to the above mentionned vehicles, the demonstration rides also demonstrate the ability of other vehicles such as Tatra 810, Tatra 815, Iveco M65 or the Dingo 2.
