"We are planning to use the [Sodema} sight for the modernization of T-90 tanks," he said.

Popov added that apart from BMP-3 the Sodema sight would be installed on the Russian-made light armor. It will also be used for upgrading foreign hardware as part of military-technical cooperation.

He clarified that the process of installation of the new sight on armored vehicles as part of a modernization effort could take from two to six months.

The batch production of Sodema sights has already been launched. They can easily be used with other hardware and equipment: the only thing which should be done prior to that is to conduct some tests and adjust the sight.
