A selfie with a Su-57 and a captured Javelin. What to see at the forum “Army-2022”

Everyone prepares ahead of time for the forum. Journalists come up with “original” topics for lighting, warriors once again train joyful facial expressions for future guests, and photocorres grin carnivorously in anticipation of everything.

As a real crow of everything shiny, I traditionally love the forum. Most often it is like from a joke — I want to go to Paris again — but I still try to visit. All the opposites of everything meet here. And the more interesting.

In the park "Patriot" everything is fine … when you get to it, but this process is not fast. But it's good later, when I got inside. And he was stunned, if for the first time, from the scale of what was happening. Apart from the main exhibition "Expo" you are waiting for endless pavilions, stands, interspersed with helicopters and strange gizmos and tents with food. Food, by the way, is well distributed throughout the territory, so it is impossible to die of hunger. 

And do not forget to use transport if you plan to hang out for a long time. The photographer and I decided to walk to the exhibition of captured weapons, which is located in a nook on the side of the road. But they did not take into account that the walk would stretch in time and space. So don't be a hero: buses, minibuses and even bicycles are at your service.

Yes, the exhibition of trophies captured by the Russian army during the liberation of Donbass is impressive. Living nightmares of civilians. Beautiful and ruthless. What is only the rear view of the M777 howitzer — transformer dozing in anticipation of the next victim. Not otherwise. Or the notorious Javelins, stacked in a corner, — they won back, so they should.

If we rejoice at our achievements, then for me the main attraction — Su-57. This 5th generation fighter is standing right next to the main entrance to the Expo, you can't miss it. 

The modules of the robotic BMP-3, which are a little further from the plane, also make you remember all the films about robots — futuristic yet soothing — they will definitely be able to protect.

You can also wander endlessly between helicopters — here you have the Mi-28NE, with small-looking LMURs (light multi-purpose guided missile), and the modernized Mi-35P, around which there is also an impressive arsenal of missiles and high-explosive bombs. And if you stick to a smart person near this helicopter, then he will also show that very modernized contraption — sighting and sighting system OPS-24N-1L with a matrix long-wave thermal imager of the third generation, a television camera and a laser rangefinder. Like this. They say it's a necessary thing in military use.

Tanks, cars, armored vehicles, all-terrain vehicles, robots, drones, small arms, orbital stations (okay, a model of an orbital station) and everything. During the 4 hours of my stay, I was able to see well only a small part of what was presented. 

In order to see everything well, be in time for the “Tank Biathlon” in Alabin and for air cavalry performances in Kubinka — I had to go every day since they opened. I will do so next year.
