Tiger sneaks into Europe
The Slovak capital, Bratislava, had hosted the 6th International Defence Exhibition Bratislava (IDEB 2016) from 10 to 12 May this year. The show was attended by 122 firms from 20 countries, including major European arms manufacturers.
The Military Industrial Company (VPK LLC) took part in the exhibition in cooperation with its Slovak partner Corvus Slovakia s.r.o. and displayed a full-scale example of the SBM VPK-233136 Tigr armoured car.
The two companiesí stand prompted intense interest of exhibitors, experts and the public at the show. The exposition was visited by ranking officers of the Slovak General Staff and Slovak Army, who were truly interested in the Tigr armoured car.
Mention should be made that a full-scale Aligator II armoured vehicle, an analogue of the Tigr, was on display across the aisle from the Tigr. Nonetheless, many experts inquired specifically about the Russian vehicle.
It is unclear, though, why the Russian media covering the arms show in Bratislava have kept mum about the full-scale Russian-made Tigr displayed at IDEB 2016.
